Well I never 😮
Usually I try to work a word of the day into the Weekly Wrap Up of late. Generally I try to look in everyday to check out the word of the day and see how I can use it in the wrap up. This week has been a hectic week and I have not been diligent in reading them everyday. So we find ourselves on a Saturday night and I check to see what word I can use, and I find this entry!
I think this is the second time I have been used in an example of usage of the word, but wonderin
Exciting things happened this week in the GA New Blogs Did you catch them daily, or do you rely on the Weekly Wrap Up to get caught up
So last weekend, I played 18 holes of golf on Sunday. We all practiced safe distancing and such. I say played, but I lie . We went to play in the Rockies and some of the tee boxes were quite the climb, and then back down to the carts. Since I don't wear my prosthetic leg much since I've been working at home, I don't get out on it too much during the week.

I've been thinking about what is going on in our world besides COVID-19. I wish it wasn't what has been happening. I've been debating saying
We all get a bit mad during our lifetime. No matter what. It is happening to everyone and everywhere all around the world. So many things happen to us, and while we are all a bit similar, events in our lives effect us differently. I have decided to write this memoir to heal. One of the biggest challenge of my life has been to understand why certain things happen, especially when I think about my mother.
We never really had a good relationship. She always finds something bad whatever I was doin
Yesterday was such a blessedly peaceful day. The quiet was almost unnerving. I made myself cosy in my favourite leather chair and read several stories on GA. It was heavenly! The magpies busied themselves outside the window in more hushed tones than usual. Their normal “tak, tak, takking” was a mere whisper. Bless them, they could see I was reading peacefully and wished to respect my quietude. My partner bustled themselves with less clamour than normal. How thoughtful! I appreciated their concer
Anybody ready for some new stories? We have some great offerings for you as part of the 2020 Spring Anthology. Wondering when the anthologies would start to go live? Well, wait no more! Today we have 3 stories for you to enjoy, and each week I will make another set live. Now, before we get to the stories, we had a bit of an incentive this go around. Every author who submitted a story into the anthology received an entry in a drawing. I added all the names onto random.com and randomized the lis
Last month’s installment of “Ask An Author” was one of the most popular ever based on the number of comments from readers. Not sure we can match the response, but this month’s question is just as fascinating. Let’s see what some of the Author/editors on Gay Authors have to say. Participants were selected by the member asking the question, and they're featured in alphabetical order.
Amateur writing can have some differences, and no one is perfect. As many of us on GA are, I am a
It’s been a rough couple of weeks, mentally. I’m not in the right headspace to get any writing/editing done, so I apologize for that. That being said, the stay at home order had me itching to put my brain to use, so I recently started a Udemy class on character art. Drawing is always something I wished I could do, and I’m really impressed with my progress so far. I like doing the assignments, and it feels like a formal online class. Pretty much the exact kind of distraction in need right now.
Thanks guys to all who are leaving feedback! Please review if you liked it 😳
Ceramic Flowers caused more controversy and comments than my first novella did, though it has less followers and reviews. But maybe that will change as the story is only now completed.
So far requests for novella number four have been for something lighter and with a less abrupt ending. I actually have lots of online stories, some completed and some not, but they don't compare in quality to my novellas becaus
Welcome to June! It's a nice, long.......... month. Yay? Well, no matter what your circumstances, there's a great way to keep yourself occupied! Read Caz Pedroso's novel Here Kitty, Kitty.

I am very saddened by the events rolled out lately. It's not the first time there are protests over police brutality, but it's been a good while since some violence of this scale rolled out. The city I live in is currently under emergency curfew due to civil unrest. It is not a time to place blame. It is a time to reflect, how we could do things differently, using each of our very limited influence, so there is a future for younger generation.
I just want people to stay inside and be sa
Well excusssssse me Seriously, I need to apologize ahead of time.
I've been on a wee bit of a vacation this past week and I wanted to take tonight off, so I can do some social distancing visiting with some friends. We will be 6 feet apart in his back yard with a fire pit between us. All of us are on the bit shy of meeting up, but as a group, we decided lets give this a try but practicing everything we can, which is a heck of a lot more that what I see others doing in the grocery stores
