I'm dedicating today's word to my dad. I lost him six years ago today.
Dad never let people drive his golf cart... I think he thought everyone drove like this...
Funny part of that last story is he got busted all the way down and promoted back to PFC by the same Colonel on the same day because the job he was doing in the location they were required the rank and no one else knew how to do the job.
I also want to thank my dear friends here on the site that helped me through
How was your Valentines Day? I'll be honest, I didn't even know it really happened The advertising and hoopla seemed to be almost non existent this year, well to me it was. I did hear one couple I know went out for dinner yet still had over a two hour wait! Oh well, for those dead set Valentiners if you missed it I'm sure it will be back next year bigger and better.
I know that all over the world there is different and crippling weather all the time. I would be remiss if I do not mention
One thing that I've discovered while writing my own stories over the years, is the 'lacking' presence of added depth when I only have one situation going on from beginning to end. Now, this may be just a personal preference of mine...but when I'm focused on two boys and one issue, the theme of the story itself feels really basic and seems to fall 'flat' to me sometimes. Like something is missing. Nothing major, really...but it's similar to a cook tasting their food and thinking, "Hmmmm...I need

I've had a love-hate relationship with the word, 'productivity.' With my occupation, it is highly encouraged to be as productive as possible, but it feels strange to see myself being the only one performing. My shift ended several hours ago, but I still can't shake my distaste for how few cares my fellow coworkers give. Seeing how the pandemic is still going on, and a lot of people are finally understanding the lasting power it can hold on human life, workers are feeling fatigued. My fellow stoc
February means love, romance, sex... um, the unintended consequences of that sometimes? Okay, I admit I love stories that include the educational field since I work in it and like to see different authors take on the world I live in. This story, on the surface, seems like a simple day in the life of a couple of HS seniors...

When I was growing up, I can distinctly remember LOVING the old school martial arts flicks that they used to show on Channel 66 in Chicago on Sundays! "Incredible Kung Fu Mission", "Five Deadly Venoms", "Drunken Master"! A good Shaw Brothers original? They never failed to excite me and have me locked in to the point where, by the time it was over, I'd be fighting my own pillows and trying to kick couch cushions across the room with my non-existent skills as a five or six year old Kung Fu warrior

It had been a bad storm and you were up all night. Dragging yourself out to go to work and you find a multicolored rose on your doorstep. When you get to work you find another on your desk. As your day goes on yo
So funny @Myr I'm only cooking dinner about 1/3 of the time you message me. And yes, there is a weekly menu on the side of the fridge so I can pick what to make each day and ensure all the ingredients are ready. Organization rules!
😆 Yep, definitely meat, meat, and more meat! In the freezer right now are homestyle meatballs, bbq pork ribs, smoked pork loin, turkey burgers, turkey breast, chicken breast, turkey burger, venison burger, venison backstrap, bear sausage/pepperoni,
When I read this entry, I really wanted this word to have an n. Restauranteur. So I looked it up, and apparently there is some history there. It’s not interesting at all but at least I feel justified.
So, what do you do when you want to write characters with daily lives, jobs and such? How would you go about doing research for the day to day life of a medical student, medical laboratory worker, or director of the CDC? I completely agree with geographic considerations, local flavor, and even cultural idiosyncrasies but, as a programmer, it is hard for me to envision the life of a saw mill worker...even though I might be tempted to cast one into my work - We can't all be programmers!
I kind of see the resemblance Steven, maybe that is the reason? Also, I had some not-so-flattering nicknames growing up. I didn't answer to them aside from giving people the stink eye or side-eye that typically shut them up. I guess Krista counts, but that was self-derived. Some of the unflattering ones were, 'Legs,' because I have long legs. I know, real inventive there, but boys called me that so go figure. My Volleyball coach called me, "Brick Wall," because I was a pretty good blocker when
