  1. Hello Everyone We missed a weekly update last week as we felt it was best to honour Wayne through the weekend. We also had a really, Really, REALLY Big Announcement this week Monday things got back to normal with Cia presenting our Classic Author of the month (psst, you didn't hear it here but Monday is @shadowgod's birthday. He is affectionately known as Steve1): That meant on Wednesday, Cia was back with the Classic Author Excerpt: Thursday was that big announcement! I hope you all drop by and say a congratulations to our newest Signature Author: Friday, we decided to do something a little different, we weren't ready to see Wayne's Prompts go quite yet. We decided to feature the previous weeks prompts once again, and invite everyone to tackle one or the other. Also we wanted to hear from you, what one of his prompts did you enjoy the most and motivated you to write? You can post it in this blog, or write to @Renee Stevens or @wildone to remain anonymous. With your suggestions, we will feature those prompts for a while. To be fair, we stopped doing the word of the day the previous week and missed the wrap up too, so here is a bit longer list of words that might tickle your fancy : Nosocomial, Unfettered, Panache, Hobson's Choice, Orphic, Squib, Issuable, Empyreal, Fortuitous, Visage Now what about the goals? Well we decided rather than just focus on the week, let us look at the month and see how we are doing!

  2. Congratulations Mrsgnomie How do you look wearing brown I can't tell if that is brown or not Enjoy your acknowledgment recognizing your hard work!!!
  3. We're not ready to let go of Comicfan as our resident prompt genius, so we are featuring his last prompts again, Prompt 892 and 893. If you would like, you can take a stab at either one for a lasting memorial to Wayne. Anyone that wants to, please post a prompt in honour of Wayne. I've created topics for each one of them, 892 and 893. Let us know in the below comments which one you did . Prompt 892 - Creative Tag - List of Words Use the following words in a story - a storm, a broken fence, a scared dog, a flash light, and an old typewriter. Prompt 893 - Creative Tag - Viral Video Most people who make it big on Tik Tok or YouTube work hard to become viral. Unfortunately your video went viral for all the wrong reasons with two and a half million views. What is your video about? Do you have a favourite prompt he shared? Let us know so we can feature it again!

  6. Well enjoy the flight over the mountains, Dodger!! If the smoke isn't too bad, you can get some really great scenery from above! Last I heard the coast is not being affected by all the smoke from the fires. When you land in Vancouver (or maybe Victoria ), it sounds like you won't have much of a layover. Too bad, as it is a beautiful city (cities) right on the coast and so much to see and do. All surrounded by mountains too. It sounds like your sister is way way way out there. Lots of Calgarians take the flight over the mountains, then a float plane to the many fishing camps hidden all up and down the coast. You missed Stampede by a day or two If you, @Valkyrie or @Headstall ever come out to Stampede, we will need to meet and take in some of what is all going on. I might even buy some assless chaps. Why do they call them assless? All chaps are assless . Okay maybe not that far . Say hi to your sister, I hope this is the one that was represented by Nicola. If she is one tiny bit like Nicola in real life, than she is an amazing woman I say take it easy, you sound like you know the best ways to protect yourself and be careful in what you . Take a few pictures and share with us what I'm sure will be amazing scenery all around you!! Bon Voyage!
  7. This, is so horrible. I am shocked. I know that he was struggling with losing his dad and having a lack of direction where to go. I also know that he has had his own health issues. But that doesn't help with the fact that 5 days ago I was thanking him for the latest prompts. Wayne has always in my mind been a gentle person, looking out for everyone. Back when we had chat, he was a calming influence and was a chat moderator. To read his last blog now I am crying. He shares with everyone of the current struggles. I imagine if there was dying of a broken heart, Wayne must have been one of the unfortunate ones. My god, this is not good news at all 😢 Renee, thank you for writing up the tribute, it is beautiful and 100% accurate. At this time, I'm not sure I could have done this myself
  8. Well it is 1:15 AM in my neck of the woods. Why you ask, am I up so late? Well yesterday was the kick off of the Calgary Stampede This really the first big event to be held in Canada. Yesterday numbers were small, but today seemed like normal Saturday. I volunteer at the grounds so I felt good enough to try and do it again this year. If it helps the charities that have basically been shut down the past 16 months, than it is the least I can do Now, who cares about the Stampede? I do!!! But you are not here to read about it, you are waiting for a wrap up that you can see what you read, what you missed and what may have interested you. So let's give it a go! Monday Cia strolled in after her 5 mile jog and gave us the July CSR featured story. Make sure you check it out as well as the discussion day later in the month: On Wednesday, I'm not sure how he does it as he is always working the nightshift, but Aaron still found time to give us another great Ask An Author: Friday, our prompt guru extraordinaire, Wayne, came up with another two great and original prompts. Shout out to comicfan for coming through week after week: Also on Friday, we noticed that there is gremlins in our servers Who gave them water and who fed them after midnight? It is your fault Turns out that our July newsletter didn't make it out to all, so Myr posted a blog with it: Myr was by each day with a new Word of the Day. I thought I had the first one and was excited as you wear dungarees to Stampede, but alas, it was not to be Dundrearies, Amative, Gloss, Watershed, Yegg, Prevaricate, and Fanfaronade Goals, did I miss the goals last week?

  11. Howdy Ho! So this week has been very unusual for me All week we here in western Canada have been hit by what the Western US has had as well. We've been in a heat dome Normally our average temp is 22 C (71.6F) and all week we were above the mid 30's (95F) I was melting!!! Things could have been worse, one small village in British Columbia broke Canadian records by reaching 49.6 C (121.28). Then a nearby fire happened and now over 80% of the entire town is gone Downtown, houses, mostly everything all gone . Anywho, last night we here had thunderstorms, a bit of hail here, and now today is back in the mid 20's. So what about you, I know we are having lots of whacky weather, what happened in the past week in your neck of the woods? We had a bit slower week this week here at the GA Blog. So shall we look back and see the goings on here? Monday was a day that we look forward to, as in the CSR Discussion Day. Did you get to read @Marty's story and join in the discussion? Friday, our prompt guru Wayne was here and bought two new prompts for you to try: On Saturday, Comsie dropped by with another great article to help out new and old authors (not necessarily age )? This week you might find it all a bit unbelievable 😮 Myr was his dedicated self by bringing us a new word every day over the past week. I'll admit, I didn't know any of these .

  12. I was supposed to be wearing pajamas ?
  13. I decided the Covid19 wasn't enough, so I did the Covid30, as in losing 30 lbs. I think I'm in more ergogenic shape now than 3 months ago, only due to that
