    CSR Discussion Day: Forces by Invnarcel

    By Cia

    Did you read Forces by Invnarcel this month? A little dark, a little twisted, maybe a journey you weren't quite expecting... just right to get us in the mood for Fall! Enjoy my interview with Invnarcel below, then leave your comments on his story or writing!    Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate. If you had 30 minutes of free time, what would you do?  Meditate and connect with myself. It’s relaxing and great. What brought you to GA?  A love of reading and posting

August Classic Author Feature: Vlista20's Cameron

August Classic Author Feature: Vlista20's Cameron

August already! I'm keeping that contemporary theme going with another oldie but goodie with Vlista's Cameron. This is one of the... lighter tales, so to speak. Come back on Wednesday to check out an excerpt from the story.    Length: 97,187 Description: Cameron thinks all he wants are one night stands, and plenty of alcohol. That is until someone comes along who causes him to re-think what he really wants in life. A Reader Said: A really nice sweet ending after a trou

Weekly Wrap Up (Aug 09 - Aug 15)

Back for a week and then gone again! That's right, you're stuck with me again this week. @wildone got called out of town unexpectedly and asked me to do the wrap up. If you haven't already done so, please go vote in the Anthology Theme Selection for next year!  We've only had fifteen votes for the top themes next year. With almost 1,300 authors and almost 27,000 members in total, 280 of whom are already members of the Writer's Circle club, I had hoped for a much better turnout. All members are e

Friends and Fear

My best friend sent me a txt at 6am this morning.  She's in a hospital in OKC with a massive infection in her lower back. She's had multiple back surgeries in the last 10+ years. Two weeks ago her pain level was so high she was nearly suicidal. Not helping that her "pain management" Dr. cut back her pain Rx to a point where they're useless. She finally convenced them to take an MRI and they found a "raging infection of osteomyelitis in her spine where her hardware is. She kept trying to tel

Author Guess Who #10

Author Guess Who #10

Wow, there are a lot of things going on in the world right now. And it's been a few months since I did one of these, so, I thought, maybe it's time for something a little light-hearted, like maybe a new Author Guess Who!!!!  The reveal will happen on August 26th!! Now, who thinks they can figure out this month's author???   What is one thing that most GA members might not know about you? That's a broad range to choose from. I don't say much about myself. OK – I'm fascinated by spi
 

Defund the Police?

I can honestly say that I don't enjoy how my country is being hit by cries and protests to defund the police. But, I can't blaim them. Today I neither trust or respect law enforcement in my state. It didn't use to be that way. I remember when I was growing up, most of our city and county officers were like Andy Griffith and Barney Fife. They helped us when we were lost. When I drove alone for the first time and wrecked my mothers car they helped me and the car get home, granted I still got a tic
 

Featured Story: His Story

Welcome to another Monday! Once again, the review team has a new story review to hopefully whet your appetite. If you do read, don't forget to leave a review! His Story Drew Payne Reviewer: Parker Owens Status: Complete Word Count: 9,305 Life is hard enough being different. It’s harder still when that difference is accentuated, made stark in bold relief, by the church in which a boy is raised to become a man. Although this story is set in the U.K., it describes a kind of abu

Weekly Wrap Up (Aug. 2 - Aug.8)

Oops  I actually forgot that I'm back from holidays, well camping, and I told the gracious Renee I would do the wrap up. Well last night, a barley pop or two, I was watching TV and then crawled into bed. I totally forgot that last night was Saturday night   I referred to Renee as gracious, as she was kind enough to do the wrap up for me the past couple of weeks. So let's all give a shout out to her for stepping in!! As mentioned, I was camping the past week and a bit. Had a great

2021 Theme Selection Voting *Round 1*

I was really undecided on how best to do the voting for theme selection for next year. We ended up with 47 theme suggestions for next year, all of which will be able to be used, but there will be extra incentive (to be determined before next year) for members to use the Top themes. If I had done a rating poll for every theme, it would have required a minimum of 10 polls, which just seemed to be way too many. So, our voting is going to be pretty much the same as in past years, except that voting
 

Remembering Hiroshima

Today marks seventy five years since an atomic bomb was detonated over the Japanese city of Hiroshima, followed three days later by one being detonated over Nagasaki. No-one will ever know how many tens or hundreds of thousands died as a result. I was born just over two years after these horrific events, and grew up in post-war England where I remember a constant national worry about a possible nuclear war. The term "four minute warning" still echoes in my head to this day. That was conside

disconnects of camping

Todays requested topic is camping. I decided to take a comical approach to the topic and relay a few mishaps that have happened on camping trips. Yes, some of them happened to me, and some of them happened to friends. When I was younger I was a member of cub scouts, and then boy scouts. That relates to a lot of camping experience. Once I received my Eagle Scout award and my bronze and silver I aged out and became an active member of a GO (gay outdoors) chapter. Over twenty years later I still ge
