  2. Good Morning, day, evening, night or everything in between. We are a bit late today for the simple fact that I do not know what day it is anymore I mean, I don't usually work on Saturdays and Sundays, but for some reason I didn't recognize yesterday was Saturday. I do think I know the reason why In four days I will be older than dirt I'm so old that I think I forgot to tell everyone ahead of time where to send my birthday presents. Oh wait, I guess I did . Let's jump right into things now! Sunday, did you check out the Word of the Day? You had to get up pretty early on a Monday morning to see when Myr posted this Word of the Day: Renee was in on Monday as well for her shift to bring all of us the Review Team's latest review: Jump to Tuesday, and we had yet again, another Word of the Day Onto Wednesday, and you all might be catching on, there was another Word of the Day Renee returned on Thursday to bring us an Anthology Entry update and revisited one of the past: Four days down, two to goooooooo!!!

  3. Well, well, well, we are back again this week with another one of a favourite prompt that Wayne presented to us. Last week we looked at one of @Mikiesboy favourite prompts and it's partner. Here is what Prompt #500 brought us: https://gayauthors.org/story/mikiesboy/onlyprompts/5 Sorry I can't make a box like below . This week, lets look at a couple of prompts from @Headstall. One of his favourite prompts that he wrote a story for was Prompt #801. His submission to that one can be read here: Now if didn't take the opportunity to check out Prompt #800 and Prompt #801, now is your chance! Prompt 800 - Creative Tag - The meal You figured a nice meal with a few friends would be a nice way to share the holiday. That quickly went from four to nearly forty people. What happened to your small meal and how will you deal with it? Prompt 801 - Creative Tag - First Line "You are what I'm most grateful for this year. " So give one or another a try this week! Also, if you can think of another prompt that motivated you, email @Renee Stevens or @wildone and we can keep going with Wayne's Prompts.

  5. I don't really know the first thing about boats. Other than they are supposed to float, and if they don't, you're in a whole lot of...water . So after the visit to the yacht club, does anyone else feel just that in itself is pretentious or is it just me? We really find that Don's only interest is to be more part of the Cobourg mafia . I'm surprised me has been an active member all these years without at least a dingy to his name. Also find it a bit disturbing that two of Robbie's biggest supporters in Nicola and Daniel are already excited to make plans after all the shyte Don has hurled Robbie's way . I'm just glad that it seems like Sue isn't entertaining this waste of money and bribery to the kids. Well I hope she is. If I were Robbie, I would cancel the meeting with the pastor without, but really with, cause . The fact, but I guess we don't have actual proof of conversion therapy, that the pastor would up his son for reeducation (I think the pastor and Mr. Symmonds would be happy with that expression) should be enough to shut them both down. I think Robbie should have a burning upon urination condition suddenly pop up the day he is to get on the boat with them. Totally fake, but would they want Robbie around the good wholesome kids with that, or would Sue even let him out of the house until tests came back negative. As far as Matthew goes, that is a hard decision. The adult in me says tell Jo, whatever happens would be better for Matthew in the end. But on the other hand, if a friend came to me about their deepest darkest secret and told me not to tell as a teenager, I wouldn't tell. Hell, I'm still keeping a couple of those secrets Once again Dodger, thanks for taking us on Robbie's journey. Hopefully the road ahead isn't as rocky as I'm thinking it is going to be. Regarding the illegal conversion therapy, it was only banned in Ontario around June 4th, 2015 and in all of Canada not until around June 22, 2021. So like so many things that are unethical in our past, it wasn't illegal at the time of this story .
  6. I can just imagine the hours and hours that the owner put into all the work. The shaping and molding of the land, the choice of fauna, the diverse mixtures of colours! How do I vote for this landscaping genius? Oh wait, is this your house Zombie?
  7. I'm giddy My football team has been having a really, really bad year this year. If you are thinking of the CFL, then you got the right league. If you don't know what the CFL is, then there is no hope for you as a true football fan But, I imagine the majority of you are saying something like why the hell does he talk about sports here! Not a question, but a statement . So they kind of lost on Labour Day against their arch rivals and the rematch was tonight. Needless to say the won, bringing their yearly record to 2-4. Like I said, not have a good year . So what gets you giddy? I think @Valkyrie is giddy as she told me she is getting to watch the Spruce Meadows Nations Cup this weekend. Although their isn't many nations, it is still nice to see some things getting back to normal, like show jumping. Horses that is 🐎! Wait, I'm talking sports again . On Monday, CIa was happy to tell us about a brand new Can't Stop Reading Feature. It is actually from an author that most of you know. Then we jumped onto Thursday, when said featured author was in to bring you another Anthology Entry Revisted: Well I'm going to do something different, I think both Cia and Renee have done them, but why don't I have the topic link rather than just a hidden link for all of Myr's Words of the Day: Goals, so where are we as we approach the middle of the month of September Anthologies 2021 Anthology #2 Top Theme 1 - A Winding Path - October 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #2 Top Theme 2- An Unconventional Gift - October 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #2 Pot Luck Themes - October 31st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

    Chapter 38

    Wow, that was one long chapter In a way, I'd like the bandage just ripped off and have Bailey fucking Ashton and Connor know about Luke and Jack. I would hope that under threat of their in the know gurlfriends they wouldn't utter a word. Would make Luke and Jack's relationship be more normalized among the group that knows. That is if they have a relationship after the end of that chapter. Put you hand up if you thought Cindy couldn't go any lower, and then she does at the end as well
  9. Well this week wrapped up nicely Before I get into the usual, I do need to talk to you all about a serious issue that has been brought to my attention this week. Usually you are given much more notice than 20 days, but with everything going on as well as where the wrap up falls this month, I'm late letting you know You only have 20 or maybe only 19 days left to get my birthday presents! As usual, I have to ask that you keep them under $5000.00 USD They can be sent to me at Wildone, PO Box 96969 Stn Main, Calgary AB T1T T1T. Well now that this PSA is out of the way, I'd like to say Happy Spring... to all my friends in the Southern Hemisphere.😎 To those of you north of the equator, Happy Autumn. Do you use the expression autumn or fall? Our first few days were cold, windy, occasionally rainy. But compared to the hurricane that battered New Orleans and then made for some extreme weather up the Eastern States, it was absolutely nothing. If any of you, or family or friends live in those areas I hope you are all safe and healthy first and foremost Now back to what happened at the GA Blog this week. On Monday, it was Cia bringing us the CSR Discussion Day: Then on Wednesday was the first one in the month of September. I know some of you set your calendars to read it, but @astone2292 had a brand new author to interview for AAA: On Saturday, since a staff member who shall remain nameless , put up the Wayne's Prompts a day late: Did you check out the words this week? I found a few that at first glance you think you know what they should be, then you notice the slight change in spelling, and a HUGE change in definition 😮 Honestly, I didn't know one this week. Phreaker, Archetype, Climometrics, Distemper, Frog-march, Asperse, Refulgence So how did we do on our August Story Goals? Let here is the results: Anthologies 2021 Anthology #2 Top Theme 1 - A Winding Path - October 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #2 Top Theme 2- An Unconventional Gift - October 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #2 Pot Luck Themes - October 31st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

  10. (Oops, was supposed to post this last night ) It is the Friday on the start of a long weekend I think everywhere in North America If you live elsewhere and have one as well, just remember you don't have to do a prompt response this weekend Maybe let it digest for a bit and maybe something will happen over the weekend that will have you saying DAMN, that was a prompt suggestion. Then you can write your story. Unless it is being stuck in H E double hockey sticks or any other macabre settings Unless you do hang out there So last week we visited a repeat by @Ivor Slipper. This week we are going to turn our own GA Way Back Machine™, and see what was another favourite of @Mikiesboy. This time he suggested Prompt #500 and I'll throw in #501 for good measure. If you want to see the responses to these you can easily click on these links . 500 had seven responses and 501 had two takers. Prompt 500 -Creative Tag - First Line “What took you so long?” Prompt 501 – Creative Tag – The Surprise You have a major birthday coming up and you don’t want to celebrate. However, every day leading up to your birthday you have found a little surprise at your job. What were the surprises and who was giving them to you? So hopefully one of these inspire you a tiny weeny little bit to get some pen to paper. Does anyone do that anymore?
  11. It feels like sometimes, @Valkyrie asperses me all the time. And I ain't talking any holy water. She can't touch that stuff
  12. No, no you did not just do that 😠 You did not finish this chapter with that line!!!!!
  13. I did get around to reading the whole story this past month I really like reading the interview and knowing exactly what you are talking about, except wearing the shirt the wrong way If I am to be brutally honest, after the first few chapters, I was considering putting it aside. But I didn't. Over the course of the story I began to see the noticeable improvement in your writing skills. The narration, the flow of the story, the use of descriptions, all improved. So really, this is a kudo's to you for improving through just this one story take a bow By the end, I have now made a note to read more of you works. So thanks for exposing yourself. But keep the shirt on
  14. Hopefully this helps you out @Ancient Battlecry! If you need any other help, you can post here in this topic or you can PM me from my profile, @wildone
  15. Ed Asner passed away today at a young age of 91 I vaguely remember him in the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Lou Grant. My parents were more into the shows, but I always remember his as a grumpy old guy I happened to be watching Corbra Kai today and saw Ed as Sid, John Lawrence's son of a bitch step father. Then, later while reading the news I saw this article: https://ca.news.yahoo.com/ed-asner-star-mary-tyler-173203364.html Rest in Peace, Ed. You will be missed.
  16. So it is nearly midnight in my time zone and I'm hungry The thing is I'm trying to lose weight and carbs are my enemy. Don't ask me what a calorie is, but I can tell you about carbs since you should be counting them with certain types of diabetes. But the thing is, what snacking food is there that has little to no carbs? Most snack food are full of the nasty little things Popcorn, chips, crackers, cookies, even a lot of drinks have a lot of carbs. No suggestions of coffee or tea black please! I don't touch them no matter what is in them. What snack foods do you have that might pique my curiosity? Like I could have 1 cup of popcorn and it would barely be any carbs, but seriously who can only eat one cup of popcorn? Make your suggestions to me, please, pretty please. Or am I just better to just skip it all together 😢 Enough about my snaking habits and why don't we digest what happened here at the GA blog this week. Well, it might have been on a diet as well On Monday, Renee decided to turn the Featured Story blog over to you! She solicited everyone to recommend their favourite story (or five ) and we kept getting them in all week. Make sure you check them out, might find your new favourite!

  17. I want to give a shout out to @Krista, our latest new member of the Million Word Club I know the amount of work from her early works to where she now is, is a great journey. Be proud of yourself Now when you get the next million done, we'll talk retirement
  18. Good Day All Apologies for last weeks miss on getting up a couple more of your favorite prompts from our guru, Wayne. Two weeks ago we had featured @Valkyrie's prompts. Next up, we have featured them recently, but @Ivor Slipper took advantage and wrote a piece using Prompt 892. And for you prompt enjoyment, we have added in Prompt 893 as well. @astone2292 also did a response as well! 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? Last but not least, we are starting to run low on the favourite prompts. If you have any more that tickled your fancy, let us know. If you are shy, don't hesitate to PM either Renee Stevens or Wildone and we will git to it
  19. I think I'm gonna go with 4 stories, can I do that First one that I really loved was Circumnavigation by @C James. This story isn't a weekend read and is one of the longest stories here on GA. CJ's description and details make you feel like Trevor is your younger brother or someone you know and proud of. His reactions and his ingenuity to keep going after experiencing obstacle after obstacle at different places around the world shows his determination and lets be honest, balls the size of cantaloupes Many have read it multiple times, I've read it thrice and look forward to the reading it a fourth time. I mean, up to the last chapter where it is still hell is raining down on him, literally, and yet he continues on. Next, a story from a beloved Author that I had the chance to meet in person, Mrs. Viv . From Beyond Those Eyes reached out to me in ways I never expected a story to do so. Be forewarned, if you don't like teen angst, then maybe move along. The thing is, I think most of us can relate to the way Viv presents the teen angst and the reward at the end. You don't have to be gay, bi, or anything else to relate to her character(s). Well with this next one, I'm beginning to think I like the teen angst stories. I guess I had so much I like reliving the horrors and the end of the world thinking when it comes to love, acceptance and being honest with yourself and those close to you. @Krista gave us Standing in Shadows and it is one of my top reads, even though I may or may not have had a sneak peak at it beforehand This story we follow Corey as his life gets turned upside down. A father that can't see him as more than bringing him a football championship, a mom struggling to make a small country store survive, and guys making him think like he never had before. Throw in a bully and the bully's best friend, and you have an interesting dynamic that makes for a great story! The final one, Living in Surreality by @shadowgod was one of my favourite's when I first joined the site. I had the pleasure of meeting him when I met Mrs. Viv. I think him and Viv's husband came along to make sure I wasn't a crazed Canadian that would try to kidnap her and bring her back to Canada This story finds Val and Matt with a predetermined future laid out for them both. But then Jacob shows up and rocks both Matt's, but Val's world maybe the future isn't as well planned out anymore. The next door kids who have two completely separate types of parents, yet are friends, both believe that they both will be married and settled down with 2.25 kids as soon as HS is out. Then we have the intriguing Jacob move in across the street. Both Val and Matt are taken aback on how much they like him, and want him. Can Jacob manage to juggle both of them as well as his own life to ensure that they can all remain friends? Oh what the heck. This 5th story brought me to read and like @Valkyrie. Don't tell her I said that as it will go to her head . I believe that Penguin was one of her first serials her at GA and started with one of Wayne's prompts, I think. It isn't a long story, but it is a story that mixes guys, and cats! Yes, a cat. Sean, Daniel and Penguin are you main characters, guess which one is the cat . I have read tons of stories where a dog has led two people to meet and fall in love, but never a cat. Follow these two young men and their growing relationship. I'll be honest, I'm not a cat person but this story will warm your heart if you are or are not. There is a few more stories still publishing so I will wait for them to finish before I help my accolades upon both of them Okay, I definitely blew my limit I also think the review team has reviewed most of these stories so if you want to check them out, make sure you pop by the Review Team's Featured Story Blog. Lot's and lots of great stories to tickle everyone's fancy.
  20. Thank you Renee With your help we were able to be prepared for an amazing celebration of life for my Dad ♥️
