Weekly Wrap Up (May 22 - May 28)



So I heard this song early Saturday morning and here we are, early Sunday morning and it is still in my head. So I thought I'd share with all of you  :)


Since it is early in the morning, in my time zone, let's wrap up the wrap up.

Monday, we had some pretty exciting news here at GA :yes: We got to introduce our newest Promising Author:


We gave Aaron his time in the spotlight until Myr dropped by with a Graeme Guide entry on Thursday:

Then our Prompt Team got to work, and brought us two new prompts. One of them was a suggestion from one of our long term members. Check it out:


Saturday was Comicality crashing the party and bringing us an all new Writing Article:

How are we doing on our goals? We have like 2 days to go, so let's get busy :gikkle: 



Lastly, in case you weren't in here every day of the week, here is a summary of the Words of the Day:

sinew, umpteen, provenience, obviate, argentiferous, gadarene, octothorpe

I bought the 45 of NIWS from Tower's Department Store in Scarborough when it first hit the airwaves. The new ones arrived on Thursdays, and I went straight from high school... turned thirteen(!) that week, and it was my birthday present to me. :D  I was so excited. I wore that sucker out. :) What a great song!

Until Gary commented, I didn't think there'd been a weekly wrap up for this week. When I click on GA's front page, there's no headline blog showing. 🤨 Don't know whether that's just me or the blog is feeling particularly shy this week. 😉😄

My bad, forgot to click one button :(. Guess that is what happens at 3:00 AM :unsure: 

Thanks for letting us know!

The Graeme Guide? Is it a knock off from the Grammar Guide? ;)  Either way, I will read it.

OMG, I meant the Grammar Guide and somehow type @Graeme's name instead.

I'll have to check with his family if he does indeed come with a guide ;).
