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
I don't post blog entries often. So seldom do I post here I had to look up how.
This one is a rant and if you don't feel like listening (reading) I fully understand and suggest you move on.
Some of you know that last fall I managed to tear a small part of my hamstring off of the bone at the upper end. To quote a friend, "What a pain in the ass!"
Three doctors, months of limited activity, various physical therapy treatments and lots of discomfort later, the rock I sit on has got
As Eminem would say: "guess who's back with a brand new rap?"
I'm just being a dork. Anyways I decided to upload my poetry in one big bunch for everyone as opposed to something like one poem per page cause... I don't know, I just wanted them all out for you guys to read in one go. Haven't had feedback yet but I'm fairly proud of them.
That doesn't matter! I'm here to continue Renee Stevens' pinned post in the lounge, but continuing with the poet questions. Cause as you can
SP and I bought promise / engagement rings today. His is 10mm wide - 6mm black band in the center, with two small silver bands on the outside, spaced slightly off the main ring; mine is a 6mm black band. It was good.
We did not go to the cemetery today like I had originally thought I would. The last two years I had very strong "intuition" on what day and time I should be there. This year... nothing. That really upset me yesterday; then felt bad about being upset about it when SP and
I just had a really bad weekend. It started on Friday and it was one of those days where nothing seemed to go right. Work was annoying, people not listening and not doing things that they said they were going to.
My lunch hour I tried to work on editing a chapter and ended up some inserting a three paragraph header onto every page. My 180 page story became almost 300 pages and was all messed up.
It didn't get any better at home. My husband knocked over a glass of Powerade onto the ti
Okay, so I usually do an intro, but seriously? Do you care about what I have to say? No.... really? I'm hurt! 😢 Bah! Fine, I'll just post this awesome interview where Rob gives some AMAZING news that has me rubbing my hands and will make all of you clamor with your comments about the story and his news below. What, you want to know what it is? Really? Should I share? Shhhhould I? 😛
If you were an animal, what would you be?
That’s a tough one, but I think the easy answer would be bear,
Do you really want to know who I am?
Or do you want the carefully edited version of who I want you to see? Of who I expect you'll want to see?
Because the real me? Well, he's doughtful, and questi0oning, and drunk, and scared. And he doesn't really know what tomorrow will bnring.
Reality is niot clean or carefully designed. It simply is. And if you can't handle that, then you should unfollow this imperfect vessel. And maybe follow someone who will more careully alighn himselrf wi
Thank you to everyone who read, commented and liked my first novella!! ✨🎉
Necromancer is done. Please recommend or review and all that other stuff people can do on here.
Now onto the important topic of novella number two... there's no use being coy about the title seeing as all the covers are visible. Still I'd like some comments or something to know that people are eager for what's to come next. Do you really want it? Or should I delay and do some info teasing for hype or whatevers?
Happy Memorial Day to all our American friends!!
As Elen said, it is time to pull out your bikinis and use them as face masks Now, I am not suggesting that you put the tops on your top and your bottoms on your face You might get arrested and for me personally, I don't need to see that . What about your neck of the woods, is it bikini weather yet? I'd ask everyone to post pictures of themselves in their bikinis but I'm scared what I would get sent in
Shall we move on from bikinis
Readers for the most part are here to read. Not help us improve. Nothing wrong with that and mostly it's all good. That's the big draw on GA, the interactions with others. It's brilliant. I love the comments readers leave.
But there really is no book or magic beans or contract with the devil which will make you a better writer. So how to improve?
First you need some talent for the written word.
Second and maybe the biggest thing is: Authors have to improve themselves.
Here it comes again, just when I've begun to get myself together. Here is another Friday and another set of prompts. Let's jump right into them.
Prompt 844 - Creative
Tag - Royalty
Having been laid off from your job you decide to play around online. You order a DNA test from one of the online ancestry sites and begin to fill in your family tree with the few facts you have. A week and a half later you get your results and an official letter from a small country you'd never heard o
I read about what people say about lockdown and this pandemic. I watch my beautiful boy suffer from sadness he doesn't understand. Watch him choke back tears he doesn't know why he's crying. In the dark of night I hold him close when his dreams are bad and when he needs the comfort of my skin.
I listen to people complain about how hard it is. How they want normal back.
I wonder what normal is gonna look like?
I am lucky that I have tim with me. Lucky that I can hold him close an
