Did everyone (who needed to) remember to "Fall Back" this morning? For our household, it's back to PST again (GMT -8.0). And the extra hour of sleep was great!
For our GayAuthors.org News Blog, we started the week looking at one of our first Hosted Authors, Comicality, and his short story Of The Flesh. Radiant Renee Stevens gives us a great review of this short story and based on her review, it's now one for my reading list (which grows longer and longer...)
We then had the first of our monthly "Interviews by Yettie" feature - with his fantastic Interview with NaperVic. Not only was the interview great, it sparked quite a few comments from our members. All I have to say is ARITE > SRITE... ;-)
Guest reviewers are essential for us and Johnathan Colourfield gave us a great review of Promising Author Dolores Esteban's Absolute Zero (22 Hours from Now). This Author Showcase also included a review of Author Mann Ramblings' A Sense of Family.
Thursday we greeted November with a highlight Tip Thursday: Happy NaNoWriMo! For those unaware, that stands for National Novel Writing Month - where authors, throughout the world actually, pledge and try to write a 50K+ word novel during the 30 days of November. For all here who are making the attempt, our best wishes and support!
All Souls' Day (thanks Andy021278 for the reference) gave us our weekly Prompt Me! And this week's prompts - are... FANTASTIC. Prompt-guru Comicfan has outdone himself with these prompts. Prompt 180 is to use a certain list of words - and, well, I'd love to see where our resident dirty minds decide to take this particular list of words. We also have Prompt 181 "The Book" - which is so different but so compelling. Again, I'd love to see where our most introspective writers may decide to take this as it poses a very interesting dilemma.
We finished the week looking back, this time our Blast to the Past brought back an article from May 2004 by Jevic on Waiting for the next chapter - lol, something we've ALL done.
