  1. Wow, what a busy week here at the GA News Blog. I should have started this earlier so I could have it maybe done by midnight local time. It is already 11:30 😮 So without large flashing lights and sirens, maybe an announcer with a mike dropped down for the rafters like at a boxing match (I believe he was busy with the Mike Tyson match ), we will be a bit more subtle today in the Weekly Update. So here it goes, we have two days left to get your edited copy for the Fall Anthology into the Anthology Proof (No, I did not say poof ) Team, so they can review and then with Renee collaborate to have release dates. Please see the announcement below for Wednesday's Blog. So, what all happened this week, you ask? Let's start things off a little different. Why don't we look at some of the words that Myr brought us all on the Word of the Days: Now back to our usually scheduled Monday, where our great GA Review Team, including @aditus, did up another great review: Then on Wednesday, Renee posted an Anthology Reminder to remind everyone to get your stories in : Usually we would be finishing off the week with a couple of Staff prompts, one by the lovely Cia, the other by some schmuck : But it wasn't! Myr dropped in on Saturday to let us know that the GA Writing Tip Blog is back! Many writers have used and learned from these. Make sure to check them out! A lot are done by long standing and prolific Authors here at GA. Lastly, here are last weeks results on the Story Goals: Oh, I nearly forgot 😮 One reader of the blog suggested to me to maybe repost the blog on the Can't Stop Reading blog for the month, two or three weeks before the CSR Discussion Day. Now I know you technically have only 1 day to read, but let's give it a try. Prompts Suggest a prompt(s) - Recommend a few prompts to be featured on Prompt Friday!

  2. So here we are again on a Friday, and not much to do in my little world Maybe, just maybe, I'll see if I'm inspired by one of these prompts Who knows Oh, did anyone notice that mess that I posted last week Guess I shouldn't be too reliant on copy and paste. Prompt #9 - Creative scene by @wildone You run into school knowing you are late, again. You quickly stop at your locker and ditch your jacket and grab some books. As usual the halls are quiet during classes. You dash to your classroom, open the door and start on your explanation and stop. No one is there. No teacher, no other students. You leave and look at other classrooms, all empty. You check your phone and it is actually a school day and not a holiday or anything else. What's happening? Prompt #10 - Use the following in a story by @Cia date free entice straight sandwich popcorn If either of these so motivate you or even both make sure you post a link to your works here.

  5. If only he was in a penguin costume, then we could see what @Valkyrie is like fishing in real life. The other penguins laugh and tease her, but give here the occasional small fish. That is why she pigs out on everything else here

  7. I may, or may not have submitted one to my editor Why I said may, is she might come back and say absolute trash. Then I won't be submitting
  8. I've been actually reading this story and really enjoying it! Thanks for the review @aditus
  9. Monday, bloody Monday... Okay, just me whining But what got me looking forward to today is this great review by @aditus from the Review Team! How I Accidentally Slept With My... by Ethan Reviewer: Aditus Status: Complete Word Count: 29,049 Are you trying to come up with who my... is? I did, and with all the possibilities going around in my mind, I had to know. I’m tempted to begin with a classic first line: Two guys meet at a bar, hook up— Well, actually the story starts with two guys in bed, having tons of fun. After the deed is done, one of the guys (James/Jamie) notices a tattoo of a heartline, a scar, and the number 17 on the other guy’s (Cameron) shoulder. The ‘17’ makes him think of a nickname he once had, and the story of the scar reminds him of someone he once knew. When Cameron is in the shower, James checks his wallet, and we learn my... is Cameron. But who is Cameron? James's first reaction to his hook-up’s name is to wash his sheets three times. And here the story becomes a page-turner. It turns out James and Cameron come from the same town. To ease the rising tension between the students of the public high school and the private school, the schools invented an anonymous pen pal project. The boys immediately hit it off; they even continue writing letters to each other after the project runs out and meet in person. There is a kiss and some feelings—and then it ends. And both have a perfectly plausible explanation of why it wasn’t their fault. What I liked was the constant anticipation, the plethora of sensations I went through while reading, the getting-to-know you banter before the hook-up, James's inner monologues, the sex scene, and the story idea. What I didn’t like was the abrupt ending, but, hey! others totally liked it. Read the story, tell me I’m wrong about the ending, and how you completed my.... !

  10. Sir @Drew Espinosa, you everlasting loyalty is remarkable considering some of the other people in here. One in particular that would abandon her army and let them all die, just so she could eat all the rations for herself Sad I say, sad indeed. I must say your flowing hair makes you the most mightiest and bravest knights in the realm of good. We shall continue to fight the good fight and defeat the scourge of the earth that is Valkyrie and her dark armies.
  11. **Bulletin**Bulletin**Bulletin** Well guess what buckaroos? You have exactly 8 days to finish up your Fall Anthology and submit to our eager and waiting Anthology Proof Team. Please submit now and our proof team members are standing buy. Call 1-800-... oh wait, this isn't a telethon or infomercial. But we would really like to see your name on the list of anthologies for the Shadows or Bridges Fall Anthology. Before I forget, why don't we all collectively say a Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Friends down south. You have a later than normal one this year and I really hope all of you do whatever possible to be safe and careful. It is up to everyone to do their own risk assessment and stick to it. We all wish you and your families a safe and thankful holiday! Now what happened at the GA blog this week? Monday, Cia was front and centre as she brought us the November Classic Feature: Wednesday, Cia was around again and had the November Classic Feature Excerpt: Friday, Cia took over again as she provided another couple of great prompts in the Staff Prompts: Myr was up to his usual good all week long with the Word of the Day: Lastly, lets check up with our goals for the week.

  12.  So I watched a movie today, and it was beautifully done. But would I recommend it? I'm not sure. The emotional roller coaster has me wiped out :(, seriously. You feel the pain and hopelessness of all the characters and you just want it to end. But somehow there is a glimmer of hope.

    Knowing that people I know, here and IRL, that have gone through this makes it even more painful to watch. At times, I wonder how people survive.

    Maybe I'm just emotional today,, but this movie made me feel empty most of the time, and grasping for the string of hope that things will get better.

      @drpaladin They overplay the HP movies so much!  :gikkle:

      Currently, I'm playing a visual novel on Steam called Our Life: Beginnings and Always. You can play as male, female, or non-binary. There's four chapters planned, but only the first three are available right now. It's very sweet and heartfelt, with 3-dimensional characters whose personalities grow and change according to the choices you make.

  13. Well this week was gone in a flash! Speaking of flash, are you feeling motivated to write a prompt in a flash? Well we actually got a response to one of the prompts last week, so make sure you pop over to this topic and see what anonymous penguin crafted a story Since we have got a few great prompts from Cia, why not a couple of more this week? Prompt #5 - Use the following words in a story brought to you by @Cia dodge help deep bodyguard strawberry wind Prompt #6 - Creative Dialogue brought to you by @Cia "You must be mad, coming here like this." The captain stalked to his desk and leaned over it. His piercing gaze struck me and turned my icy determination to water. "I dare you to say that again." If you so feel motivated to give one a shot, why not post a link in one of the two topics that are here!
