I've been writing stories and poems for as long as I can remember. I have a four-drawer chest full of them, there are more stacked in the shelves of a wardrobe once intended to store skivvies, pullovers and underwear; my writing desk hasn’t seen the light of day in three years.
In a year or ten I’m going to fall off the perch - and all those words that flowed year after year from my heart and my head will end up in some trash pile …
... .... I act now!
between cleaning my teeth and preparing to entertain a seniors' group with story, song and riddles a week or two ago I came upon a FREE web programme on the internet http://www.wix.com/
It provides the capacity to upload a story (or anything else for that matter) and allow the reader to turn the pages as in a real book. The programme not only includes clip-art and other quirky elements that can be added to the text, it allows users to upload their own illustrations, photos or tables from their computer. (I even managed to create treble clef melody line for the song I wanted in one of my stories).
Now I’m just a beginner in all this techno world stuff but I bravely offer the following URLS of my first efforts - done for the entertainment of my great nieces and nephews. I invite you to take a peek and tell me what you think (I think you need ‘Flash’ to make it work!)
