Thank you to everyone that submitted a prompt reply to Comicfan's final prompts before we lost him
I think we had 5 submissions and each one of them are amazing. I imagine if Wayne had any relatives that were aware of his large participation on site, they would be happy to see that people submitted. I know I'm proud of everyone ❤️
So as mentioned, we wanted to hear your favourite prompts from the past, and we would re-feature them and see if you want to continue on if you already sen
That word usually conjures up negative thoughts. Like: "They played like a bunch of amateurs" or something done poorly.
The thing is it doesn't really mean that. It means doing something for the love of it, for pleasure.
My favourite quote about being an amateur comes from an old film... A Christmas Without Snow. i saw it on tv one Christmas season afternoon, while Jeff and i huddled in our room. i was writing what would become my street poems then, and i remember this
I believe that one of the best ways to spice up a certain type of story, depending on what you happen to be writing at the moment...is to grab your audience and turn them upside down with an effective plot twist. As many of you have heard me say in past articles...the readers that you are doing your very best to entertain are much more savvy and experienced when it comes to reading fiction these days. This is the information age, and things keep speeding up. You're not speaking to folks with a l

Is it Wednesday? I think it is! Which means it's time for... 🎶 Aaaaaaaask An Author! 🎶 Oh, boy! I hope speech-to-text capabilities don't advance any time soon, because that was just awful! My husband's looking at me like I'm a crazy person! Anyway, we have another three questions for one of GA's authors!

Solitude of the Photo
The lens of the camera is shallow. It sees colour and shape. It gives the illusion of motion in two dimensions. It draws the lig
Well how did this month treat you? I cannot believe it's already finished, but I am so glad it's done! Here comes June, Pride month! Who has something planned? I know it's a time for many to reflect on our community, coming out, and so much more. I think Graeme's story reflected that quite well, but what do you think? Share in the comments below, but first my interview with him!
What’s one location you’d love to go to research for a story?
I have an idea for a story set in the p
Well hello happy campers .
I know it is the Memorial Day long weekend in the US of A, and the Late Bank Holiday long weekend in the UK. Also if you live in Australia's Capital Territory, it is the Reconciliation Day long weekend for them. So did any of you get out camping? Do they call it camping in the UK and Australia? I know here we have trailers or recreational vehicles and tents to go camping, but don't you all call them caravans? Oh wait, if you are out camping, you won't be here to
Well, yesterday tim and I had a rather big yet stupid argument. It wasn't nice, tim was rightly angry and hurt. I don't remember the last time I felt that angry.
It was totally preventable and it was organic.
What happened isn't important, it was a true accident, tim was hurt physically (not badly), but I told him to get out of the way. he took offense to my reaction and left the kitchen quietly. Which angered me more and from there it escalated. Leaving tim angry and telling me I co
I truly think that Mark Twain said it best...
"A clear conscience is the sure sign of a bad memory."
If that's the case...I wish my memory was a lot worse than it is now, because 'a clear conscience', I'll never have. And yet, I don't see that as a bad thing. Never have, never will. The truth is...I had to grow up at some point. And, yes...I made PLENTY of mistakes! I have plenty of regrets. Lost friends, created enemies, and made a lot of bad choices for selfish reason. But...you know

You probably have a crazy and hectic schedule and find it hard to keep up with everything going on. We get it, because we feel it too. Signing up here is a great way to keep in touch and find something relaxing to read when you get a few moments to spare.
@Timothy M. Perhaps this is a brand issue. This product is made by the Black Flag Company. I don't know if it is sold in Europe. I once got one, for an ant & spider infestation (problem solved). It really works, they go in and never come out.
Poor Tom Thumb,
I always found it interesting that he was trying to destroy Harry, yet he held a piece of Voldemort's own soul. If he recognized the other horcruxes, don't you think it would make sense he'd recognize that when he saw Harry? That was a huge hole, IMO.
