I began writing poetry as a child, my first one being something along the lines of “I have nothing to do but sit around the house just thinking of you.”
Writing long, entailed novels sounds daunting, and not something I thought I could do, so when a poetry contest was happening in my town, I wrote some and submitted them. Of course I lost. But it brought out in me how much I would like to get back into my poetry again.
So, I started this blog and published some books, and here I am today. Still plodding along writing here and there, and publishing here and there as well. I have 9 books currently published, and am hoping my next one will be a novel I’ve been thinking about for years.
I hope you enjoy my writing, and feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Josephine, it is truly an honor to have you following my blog. I hope you enjoy commenting because I so love to discover more about all those who care enough to follow me. Besides, you are a wonderfully talented woman! Blessings,
Oh, thank you very much, so kind of you to say. I look forward to reading more of your blog and getting to know you better. All the best to you.
If you can feel, then you can write.
I would add – if you can SEE…attentively…See everything as being “you”…
Amazing blog. Sinking in emotions as i see your blogs. wonderful captions. i am enchanted to meet you. 🙂 ❤
Thanks for following. I’m a happy camper now you are joining me as I trip around by RV, plane, car and time machine to the past.
Comments, compliments, critiques and wisecracks are most welcome.
You have a great blog. “See” you again soon.

Josephine, truly appreciate you visiting my blog and adorning it with a follow – Welcome aboard! If you have any requests or suggestions just drop me a line. I look forward to taking a tour of your own works, MM 🍀
Wow….books and songs. Thanks for following my blog.
Thank you for following my blog. I hope you visit again soon…and do feel free to comment. I love to hear from other bloggers.
“If you can feel then you can write.” What a great and inspiring tag line (I can’t agree with it making the writing process sound so simple! But it’s damn good).
We won’t all be famous writers or make our writings into something famous, but I think all of us can write, and is so cathartic.
I’m enjoying your poetry and will dig a bit deeper. Thank you for choosing to follow one of my blogs. I hope you continue to enjoy the posts. Perhaps one day you will stop by my other blog and check out some of my poems? http://poetryphotosandmusingsohmy.wordpress.com
Bon courage et bonne chance! 🙂 Léa
Thank you for visiting and following my blog! i look forward to seeing more of your posts!
Thank you for following my blog. I love what you have to say about writing…
It reminds me of the days I used to freelance in the “regular markets.” Although I had some success, it’s about the waiting and waiting and the bottleneck industry where a paltry few are published while God has generously gifted so many with inspiration.
I remember submitting one essay that took me years to conceptualize and finally put on paper (back in the day I was writing a regular newspaper column and getting many inspirational pieces published) and after many weeks I heard back from a, hmmm, twenty-something recent J-school grad, an assistant to an assistant reader, or something, who liked the essay well enough, she just wasn’t cool with the subject matter, like, really, you know? lol! 🙂
Stay the course!
Cheers, and blessings.
i enjoy your blog and your words. very moving and it touches at the core of the soul. thank you
Thank you very much, I appreciate it. x
Thank you for the visit and the follow. I always enjoy meeting kindred spirits and I agree with what you’ve said about feeling and writing. “Never Quite Broken” is an inspiring title – what does not break us makes us stronger, yes? 🙂
Absolutely. Thank you very much for the kind words.
Thanks for taking the time to follow my blog. It’s much appreciated.
HI Josephine. It is an honour for me that you have selected my blog to follow. You are an inspiration and I am sure lots more is coming on your way. I would definitely like to know more about you. I hope you will explore my travel world too.
I really enjoyed your blog, and thank you for coming and visiting mine, I really appreciate it.
Wonderful poetry. Thanks for the follow. I hope you enjoy my future posts.
Your byline, “If you can feel, then you can write,” is exactly why I blog. I’m learning to feel. Poetry is quietly unsquashing all of the emotions I crammed down into a dark corner of my 5’2 frame. I look forward to reading and following your thoughts as you free them to the wind!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to reading more of your work. It’s amazing the power of the word — those spoken to us and those spoken by us. I’m glad you decided to pick up the writing again.
Hi Josephine, thanks for the follow. Sorry I don’t get much time to read blogs but will try to drop by yours.
I am touched by your comment and buy your companionship on my journey as a writer. Is always been my believe anyone who can feel is never truly lost, only temporarily too scared to sort out their feelings and find their way home.
Thank you for taking the time to read what I write.
So glad you didn’t stop writing for the rest of your life! Love your poetry … thanks also for following my blog 🙂
Thank you very much! I’m glad you enjoyed my writing. Look forward to checking your blog out again soon.

Te-as alinta pe un nume placut tie, dar nu-l stiu
Intr-adevar, fara sensibilitate, in cea mai buna conditie, scrisul nu va fi decat caligrafie. Ai personalitate, si e foarte bine.
May God bless your life Josephine Ranes 🙂
May He lead you every day in His rest. He is awsome and loves you very much!

Thank you for following my blog, Josephine. I know I shall enjoy following yours!
Was checking out your site again today. I have been following you for awhile. My ministry has been expanded to health and wellness, was looking for another revenue source to fund my ministry work. It has been very successful. Would love to share with you and perhaps you or someone in your network of followers would be interested. Thanks, Peggy
Sounds promising. Shoot me an email at email@example.com and we’ll chat.
Josephine, I just sent you an email and look forward to connection. Peggy

Osez Joséphine osez, …
It’s a french singer tube…
Oui. I’ve heard it. Maybe my new theme song? Thank you, merci.
Thanks for visiting.
And following too!!
Love your philosophy.
Very happy to be here, Josephine. Yours is a lovely blog. I think the content of your heart and mind is what matters the most; not the content of your pocket. And that is what you offer here. I love it. I pray you keep shining through your blog and writings.
Thank you very much, I appreciate your kind words.
Hello Ms. Josephine. I guess I am the opposite of you. I am fascinated by the authors I read and want to know all about them as well as their words, mind, spirit and heart. I suppose I will learn those things by reading your talent. Ciao Bella, Namaste.
Lovely words! And a nice journey! I hope many novels come together for you. Keep writing!
Thanks so much. I have 9 books published, and hoping another comes out the end of this year.
Welcome. Good luck with it!
