Wow. It's been a while since I've done one of these, but Steve is away for the weekend and asked if I could take care of it. Of course! Between not feeling the greatest the last couple of days and not having done it in a while, let's hope I remember how! So, let's take a look at what we had this week.
And don't forget to check out Myr's post about the recent update!
2019 Fall Anthology: Fall From Grace - Due November 15th
2019 Fall Ant
What up buttercup?
Strange thing to say, but 3 different people said that to me this past week, and after all, this is the weekly update So make sure you try saying that phrase to someone this week and see what kind of reaction you get
So what's up with Gay Author News this week?
On Monday, Cia brought us a new CSR feature for the Merry Merry Month of May ♪♪:

So what is going on in your neck of the woods? I guess I get to say 'May the fourth be with you', as technically in my time zone, the west coast of N.A and S.A and Hawaii, it is still Saturday With the first of May past us, I just wonder when spring will start here Snow, snow go away and to down to Australia today
Oh, before I forget Everyone should take note of the upcoming deadline to get their Anthologies in. 10 days and counting!!
And one more thing, lol, if anyone has finishe
It is a sad weekend for me . My beloved Flames went down into a burning ring of fire 🔥. Both BHopper and me are both crying in our beers 🍻 notice the plural.
If you are of the Christian faith, Happy Easter Sunday.
If you are of the Hebrew faith, Happy Passover.
I'm sure I'm missing some others, so make sure you comment below on what I did miss
Looking back at the GA Weekly Blog this week, it all started off on Monday with Cia bringing us a New Classic Author Feature:
I'm shocked I'm surprised I'm flabbergasted And you all should be too! When I found this out yesterday I was left with my mouth agape . Just when you thought you knew a guy, you find out how little you know! And then, to top it all off, he chooses to use deceit and misguidance to throw everyone further off the track. It has been pointed out that he didn't lie, but to me he might have just well have . I'm not willing to turn my back on him and I think no one else should either .
Yep, it's been a while since I actually posted one of these. So here is the round 5 answers. We only had a few answers that I could find in my inbox, so thank you to everyone who sent in answers.
Authors: What first got you into writing? What was your first story about?
@Timothy M. Reading about how writing erotica online was becoming a trend (years ago). After reading some of the stories on a Danish site I thought "I can write a better story then this." Also, if you contribute
So Spring is here! Sports is underway for starting their seasons or finishing them off. As I know a few follow sports and others probably come here to ignore them , I shall not say no more LOL.
Monday, Cia introduced us to an all new CSR Feature for the month:
Tuesday, although not really a Tech Tuesday post, Myr did share with us an update on the editor and spacing:
Then on the first Wednesday of April, Carlos returned with an all new GA reader favourite of Ask An Autho
So just in case you missed it GA underwent a Software upgrade on Saturday. So far I haven't noticed any differences but I'm sure that is a good thing . In case you did miss the announcements, Myr did put everything in a nice, neat, little blog:
Now let's look at the rest of the GA Blog for the week!
Monday, Cia lead us on the CSR Discussion Day:
Wednesday, was another addition of Guess Who? I have to admit, this one has stumped a lot of people
Well now that it is officially the end of winter on the Northern Hemisphere, let's not wish that winter on anyone in the Southern I think it was rough on our European, Asian and North American friends.
Just a reminder, I am still looking for completed stories or series for the weekly blog. If you have a favourite, or two, or more, make sure you send me a PM @wildone I have one left, so send me some...please
Cia started the week off with our introduction to a new Classi
So, don't tell anyone but I think Renee missed her hour of sleep this week . This makes less work for me, and gives me something to tease her about . I do have to admit that I don't have a lil' one under that age of 1 that I'm tending to day in and day out, so I guess I shall forgive her Why don't we all share our love .
On a more sad note, we have members in New Zealand that we should share our love with too .
Monday, Renee introduced us to another featured story
Lucky I'm doing this tonight before I go to bed, as tomorrow, don't come looking to borrow a cup of sugar (do people actually do that?) as I might bite your head off . Yes, last night was this biannual silly thing called Daylight Savings Time. If you don't have this annoying time shift in your neck of the woods, it resets our clocks an hour ahead or behind to accommodate for longer days for the summer and shorter days for the winter and energy consumption. Unfortunately Saturday night was the ki
I was just about to head to bed and rest my weary head, when I said to myself, "Self, you have to do the weekly Wrap Up!" So here it is .
Also, still looking for some more completed story suggestions to feature
Monday, Cia had our CSR Discussion Day from February's CSR story:
Then on Wednesday, Renee brought us another great addition of Improve & Encourage:
On Friday, we had some prompts, but I guess I was asleep at the wheel and maybe we d
I guess there is no completed stories or poems on the site that are worth making a shout out to Well, there is one so thanks to that person for giving us a great recommendation to put at the end of this week's Wrap Up! In case you missed it in my ramblings last week, we were hoping to have you the readers (if you read on site, you are a reader ) to recommend a completed poem, story or series to have featured at the end of the Wrap Up. All you have to do is go to my profile @wildone, click o
What's up, buttercup?
So did you get to use that expression on Valentines Day? I know I'm late and maybe should have presented this last week, but oh well . So I remember when I was in elementary school, getting a box of Valentines Cards and filling out for everyone in my class, boys and girls. I was thinking to doing that this year at work but when I mentioned it to someone, they thought I might be setting myself up for a visit with H.R. So, did you do anything to spread your love
Well, it's time for another Q & A session with our site authors, poets, editors, and readers! As you can see, these features have a little something for everyone.

Saturday was Comsie's turn to bring us an article on plot holes
2019 Spring Anthology: In the Stars - Due May 15th
2019 Spring Anthology: Snapped - Due May 15th
Ask An Author
Well one down, 11 to go So the topic around North America this week has been the weather. I won't go into temps as there is both Celsius and Fahrenheit used here. The interesting thing is that as both approach -40, they meet. So pretty everywhere in North America above Mexico, it was darn cold. But I don't want to just talk about North America, so what about your neck of the woods. I imagine Australia is basking in their summer. Is Europe freezing cold too, or just a normal winter?
I don't know about you, but I have been waiting for weeks now to find out who our first 'Author Guess Who' was that Renee had everyone guessing all over the place Did you guess wrong? Did you guess right? Was it someone that you totally didn't expect
Author Guess Who #1 Reveal
The author for our first Author Guess Who was.....
You can check out his questionnaire answers here.
And check out these two stories!
So have you started to regret the holiday season? Did you maybe spend a penny or two more that you expected this year? I was thinking how lucky we all are in that we can come to GA and read and read and read and not put out a penny if we want! And this community is the reason why! I don't know why, but I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that contributes to the site, Authors, Poets, Editors, Betas, Members, Review Team, Author Promotion Team, Anthology Proof Team, Site Moderation Team, a
Oops, sorry for the lateness, I totally forgot what day it was yesterday I think it is time to take me out to the back 40

Well, it's time for another Q & A session with our site authors, poets, editors, and readers! As you can see, these features have a little something for everyone. If you have ideas for questions for one of these groups, feel free to PM me! And while you're at it, why not answer one of the Round 4 questions! Now, let's see what we have for you this month! This month, we're going to turn it around a bit and start with our editors first!
Editors: What is th
Well have we all recovered from our New Year's Eve festivities? Are we back to work if you took some time off for the Holiday Season? Are the students getting ready to head back to skool on Monday? Are you still writing 2018 down on everything?
Enough of those questions and let's move on to the most pressing question on my mind right now... How do you have a pair of underwear? Like do you say I need to grab a clean pair of underwear? Do you grab two, or one? So how is it a pair?
So, who is ready to bring in the New Year with a bang? Well let's do something a little different as we all here at GA enjoyed the holidays so let's finish off with you taking over! Why don't we discuss the New Year. I know a few years ago I failed miserably when I said I wanted to be more of a drama queen in the coming year Well, some of you may have thought I'd succeeded. But what the h e double hockey sticks, lets ask you what you are going to make your resolution to be this upcoming year .
Merry Christmas to all!!
Yes, I'm a day or two early depending on your timezone, but what the h e double hockey sticks , lets get into the spirit of the message and wish everyone, their friends and their families all the very best over Christmas You may not observe Christmas so as mentioned, in the spirit, we all here at the GA Blog wish you too the very best!!
We did things a little different this week with the blogs posting, so here is a wrap up!
