Introducing Promote Yourself Mondays and Pay It Forward Thursdays

Grab yourself a coffee and take a look at this … it starts next week!

Go Dog Go Café


The Go Dog Go Café is excited to announce two new weekly features starting Monday, February 12th that are designed to allow all members of the GDG community to interact and support each other and to get introduced to some great writing that we might otherwise miss.

Promote Yourself Mondays

Every Monday starting at midnight EST, Go Dog Go readers, guest writers and baristas will be able to post one link to one specific post from their personal blog into the comment section of our Promote Yourself Monday Post. Be sure to pick your best recent post*, because we will be choosing a WeeklyBarista Favorite to be published in full on the Go Dog Go Cafe with a link back to the writer’s personal blog.

Care Guide – Eric/Believing Sight Unseen

I’ve now been given the keys to the Go Dog Go Cafe … trying hard not to make too much mess!

Go Dog Go Café

Care guide no use

emotional overspill

hand rub squeeze tight

deep soak wet through

hot wash why rush

spin-cycles at least two

well-conditioned I’d say so

iron best wrinkle free

airing-cupboard tight fit

while here get clean sheets

okay mister don’t mess up

damn you got me dripping

He Had True- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

Out odd-jobbing again …

Go Dog Go Café

Easing back now had his day

Easy said just not his way

Decades spent in hope not hate

Emotions ignored no love relates

He falls every now and then

A like mind curved with legs

Goes well a while until she feels

Too sweet too deep so very still

All but one had not a clue

Just what it was he had true

An artist’s touch a poets lips

A heart that gave a mind that flew

Guest blog post by a co-author of The Box Under The Bed, Eric Daniel Clarke.


It still seems a little odd to think of myself as an author yet thanks to Dan and all the co-authors of the ‘Box Under The Bed’ I am. What Dan may not realise is that my story Destination Reached was first viewed through his blog two years ago. Here’s how.

I started writing prose quite late in life, in August 2012 as I just turned 60.

By the time I started my first (now deleted) blog in April 2014, I’d written over 200,000 words of internet messages between a fictional man and woman. From this Their Days the first of the Believing Sight Unseen stories was created and is on target (just!)…

Promises- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

Another ‘Guest Barista’ Thursday for me courtesy of Christine/Brave and Reckless at the Go Dog Go Cafe.

Go Dog Go Café

He a man untied

To time or anything

Beyond accepted promises

She his curved ball

Provokes imagination

Believes she can be his

Conscience slips and slides

Everyday more blind

To all he’ll leave behind

As he sleeps he stares

Sees her in his darkness

Light rolls back their years

Love beyond words

Felt though unheard

Their promises unbroken
