Chris Black

Bio: The published and unpublished manuscripts of Chris Black. A writer from Wexford, Chris has been writing and publishing poetry for the past twenty+ years. September 2016 saw his dream come to fruition with the publication of his first book Same Train, Different Track a book of Poetry and Short Stories. Preferred reading - Autobiographies, the history of the native American Indian, plays golf badly according to those he plays with/against. Continues to try and write each day/night by giving the sawdust a shake and seeing what falls out - an eclectic taste in music, spent 16 happy years as a radio presenter in a part time capacity while "slaving" away at the coal face now enjoying all that retirement has to offer and more. Twitters badly @CJBlack2012, on Soundcloud @ C. J. Black & chris black 36, youtube @Chris Black-poetry-spoken word. You can find his "work" at http://www.chrisblack2012.com - very original? When he comes up with a fresher idea you will be the first to know. If you do happen to drop by either site do let him know your thoughts, who you are and where you come from - He will in time also pay you a return visit. Thank you.

  1. Thanks again for your award nomination Chris. From here you just need to send me the 7 questions that you want me to answer and the rest is up to me. Regarding awards in general there’s a good procedural explanation given here by Brent Gladney http://brentgladneywriter.wordpress.com/2013/03/07/ive-been-nominated/ The technical rationale of the award system is explained here http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2013/02/13/more-traffic-and-backlinks-for-your-blog-awards-and-memes/
    Once again, my appreciation Chris and I beg that you go easy on me with those 7 questions!


    1. Thanks for all the info Mike, have to wait for the assistance of one of my young techies to come to my aid as you probably realise by now I am illiterate in relation to the works of the bicycle!!
      In relation to the 7 questions you refer to all that is required is that you say 7 things about youself – they don’t have to be too personal.


    1. You are most welcome, I guess none of us would be here if it were not for the encouragement of others, it would be a lonely place without the company and comments.


  2. Where is your “about page” writings? I would have thought with your wit and writing I would be in for a good read!! I can’t stop for a cuppa until it is done!:)


    1. Hi Meredith, I am coming down with nominations lately, way back I made the decision of being ‘awards’ free I thank you for thinking my scribblings worthy of an award, I hope you are not offended if I decline, being accepted into the community that is ‘Blogsvile’ having people follow, like, comment, read and communicate for me is award enough.
      Thanks again,


      1. Thank you Meredith, while I’m here in relation to Musical Monday -what a great idea by the way- the video played for me – as for favourite tracks high up on my list of Doors recordings would be ‘The End’ look forward to the next challenge.


      1. A vacation ๐Ÿ™‚ wish I could on a long one..maybe you could pen down something on ur experience der ๐Ÿ™‚ …and it was my pleasure nominating you and hope you will accept..take care..


  3. Haha, I just looked at your blog and of course it has tons of poetry (I should have looked first shouldn’t I?) I commend you on it; I find it very hard to do (well).

    Iโ€™ll admit that generally when I come across poetry posts I skip them but I do on occasion have a read and sometimes I find excellent pieces that I can relate to, and yet others to me donโ€™t make sense. I am sure this is a fault on my part rather than the authors.

    It is something that I feel that I should like (a bit like ale) but I am having difficulty with it (again like ale).

    So it is my turn to apologise in case I caused offence.


    1. Every one to their own I say, but I find it an education reading through the variety of posts – oh and I am a lager person – my taste buds never took to ale.
      Happy writing,
      I’m off now to hit the follow button and catch up further on your posts.
