Weekly Wrap Up...



Greetings on this Superbowl Sunday from your friendly blogging team. This week has been a hoot! It started off by dragging out an old favorite by DomLuka:



You know, I really wish more of you would review these stories... make an author feel appreciated. Anyway, our reviewer really did just that. And got quite a bit of feedback. Good job!


Of course that was just Monday, we still have a whole week to look back on. Tuesday was a peek at the psychology of the writer's muse, and Thursday brought a few ways to tackle that pesky problem of introducing the physical description of your character.


Wednesday brought us two new stories to read and review (and you guys were still talking about Desert Dropping!). We were given Pitch Perfect by intune and Red Light by Robyn and as always, the invitation is open for you all to pitch your favorite into the ring. Bring em on baby!


Friday, as always, presented two new writing prompts for those who want to try out their writing wings, who are in a slump, have writer's block, or who just want to flex their writing mucsles with something new. Percy wrote a really nice piece from the POV of an inanimate object. Go make sure you give him reader love (click the like button) in GAStories.


And finally Blast from the Past. We discovered how much we've grown. This year is our 10th anniversery as a site. We've come a long way baby!
