Sunday Spotlight: Gerry Aldridge

Editor’s Note: 

Here we are again, it’s Sunday and time for Sunday Spotlight. Each Sunday we will spotlight a writer/author from our talented list of Published Contributors. We have a deep bench, and the idea is to reintroduce these wonderful and talented contributors to our audience, especially new followers that may not have noticed their writings here on the site, and to give them a boost in exposure. This is the wonderful benefit of collaboration with other writers, authors, and bloggers.

Gerry Aldridge was one of our first published submissions. He is a sculptor, an author, and a poet. His poetry is widely known in his home country of Portugal, and he is loved here on Two Drops of Ink. His poetry continues to get views – daily – since we published his first set.

He has authored two books, and he’s also produced one spoken-word poem on YouTube.com. He has a fee verse style that is quite unique; however, he also writes poems with clever lyrics, rhyme, and meter, which appeal to the neo-formalist. Get to know Gerry. Follow him on his links. Enjoy!

Bio:

Gerry Aldridge is an English sculptor and writer who lives in Portugal. He spent many years traveling and has published two memoirs about his journeys on Amazon- Kill Daddy, and I Don’t Believe God Wrote The Bible by Gerald Freeman (pen name). He writes to share his experiences on this planet and to hopefully inspire people to follow their dreams, instead of settling for a life they feel they have been told to have.

TWO DROPS OF INK: THE LITERARY HOME FOR COLLABORATIVE WRITING

At Two Drops of Ink, we proudly collaborate with other writers. Most bloggers work hard to brand themselves and push their own sites, and that’s fine; however, here at Two Drops of Ink, we have created a unique and powerful epicenter for collaborative writing. Along with our writing team and the blogs we post, we accept submissions of all genres (see our submissions guidelines). This is a huge win-win for our literary blog and for writers that are either well established and are looking to expand their audience, or relatively new writers looking for exposure. We dedicate this page to those writers, and their works, that were good enough to publish on our blog. Congrats to them. Please take a moment to scroll down through the list and enjoy and share their writing.

He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch. ******** ~ "I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul—to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real-life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~ ~Scott Biddulph~
