Welcome to The Bee Writes…!
Guten Tag, I am Bee, author of the poetry book “Me ~ Lost & Found” and long-time blogger with a day job.
I am blogging since 2009 and have had ~ 13 or 14 ~ blogs so far. Sorry, they are all gone.
well, I don’t really know why. I suspect it’s because I tried to set myself to blog about one topic but that is not who I am. I have too many interests and want to share too much. And keeping several blogs going is just too much. Even for me ;-).
That’s how this blog and the subtitle came to be: expect nothing ~ not even the unexpected.
If you follow this blog you will find poetry, photography, the odd rant about snow in Britain, Christmas, Brexit…. , sci-fi serials, mental health tips & information, book reviews, recipes, homemaking suggestions, quotes… a little bit of everything really.
Sorry, that I’ve given up to give you regular features and be predictable. But I bet I keep you surprised :-)!
Every now and then I send out a newsletter with a summary of what happened on The Bee Writes… and updates on books & writing. To not miss a buzz sign up here:
Who is The Bee?
I am ginger, happily married to the best husband in the world, daydreamer, tea (and can you believe it) & coffee lover. Baking enthusiast, book reviewer, immigrant and poet, author, blogger….
Born many moons ago in the South of Germany I have filled many roles in my life. Some include shop assistant, social worker, volunteer.
I graduated from Katholische Fachhochschule in Muenster, Germany with a degree in Social Work in 1996 and gained experience as a self-employed social worker in social care until my mental health stopped me in my tracks in 2001. I delivered newspapers, lead a choir, managed youth groups and worked as a fishmonger.
Through all this, I have been writing poetry gradually growing into blogging about poetry, creative writing and mental health. And I immigrated to the UK long before Brexit made it a crime. Now I have decided to become the change I want to see in this world and share my journey with those who want to be the change too. YOU!
