  1. Do any of my American friends like smoked turkey for Thanksgiving? I have it on pretty good authority that it might not be the most healthy food...for you I've been waiting a week to get that one out I know! You can't stop laughing at it, just like me ! Anywho... Canada had our holiday over a month ago and My American Cousins are about to celebrate theirs over the whole next week It seems that in some jobs, but not in all, this holiday becomes a 5 day weekend ! I imagine if you work ANYTHING to do with retail, then it is anything but a long weekend . Make sure to say thanks to a retail worker this week So a lot is bad in our world these days and some might say getting worse, but let's put that all aside and leave it for the Pit. Let's answer one simple question this week. What are you most thankful for in the past year, or the upcoming year? I'll be honest, when my sister asked me this during 'nadian TG, I thought how my dad was able to slip away from us and no longer have to suffer the constant daily battles of trying to deal with his rapidly decreasing mental capacity. Some would say you're thankful for that? I would reply that even in the worse case scenario, there is always some great goodness that can and should be found. He is much happier now. So go ahead, let me know what you are thankful for this year. You don't need to be 'merican to play along. It is always a good thing for everyone to think about . Looking back at the week we had here at the GA Blog, we had what was a cram packed week of 3 different blogs. Monday had us looking at a whole new Classic Author Feature: Wednesday, Cia was back again with the Classic Author Excerpt: Then on Thursday, we had our final installment of the 2021 Fall Anthology. There is another great list of stories that are meant to be read! Myr, although he had a feisty week in misrepresenting me in the Word of the Day, he reported in daily: Proscribe, Opprobrium, Inchoate, Usurp, Cracker-Barrel, Malleable, Ominous We have just over one week left in our goals for November, shall we try to push them over the top for the month?

  2. Those of you that still have or always have had daylight savings time, today is the day that it is okay to be late to work So if you showed up for your 9:00 AM shift at 9:15 but forgot to set your clocks back, you are 45 minutes early Let's just ignore the fact that most people use their phone for their alarm and phones automatically update on their own . So Thursday was the first of many big weeks here at GA! Did you get excited about the start of releasing of the Fall 2021 Anthologies on Thursday? There is now ample reading to keep you busy and all new stories at that! Let's look back at the rest of the week and see what happened at the GA Blog. On Monday, Cia brought us a new CSR Story to read over the next month! I've read it, I loved it, really looking forward to the Author Discussion Day Wednesday was kind of a sad day Aaron ran out of questions to ask our authors for AAA. Renee did up a blog to show how easy it is. Doesn't matter if you are a long term term member, a new member, a vocal member or a shy member, you all can submit 3 questions anonymously to Aaron. He will then be like the Cookie Monster and hunt down a cookie, or maybe an author , and hopefully get your answers and feature them on AAA. Remember, you are anonymous! **Legal Disclaimer - Aaron has not nibbled on an author like a cookie... in a while** Thursday was the first of four weeks of something that is getting more and more popular every time we publish. Make sure you check out all of the first releases of the 2021 Fall Anthology! A huge thank you to Authors, Editors, Banner designers and to all the readers as well. You all are making this a great success! Well that was the week in a nutshell. But we did have our daily Words of the Week: Wraith, Scour, Pertain, Bumptious, Duplicity, Bowdlerize, Gritty Since we finished off the month of October, here is how we did on our goals.

  4. Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Bulletin Just in case it has slipped your mind, you only have until October 31st to get your Anthology into the Review Team. Make sure you see the blurb below for more details. Well, we are having our municipal election on the 18th of this month in my little city and ever other town, hamlet, village, etc. in the province. Provincially we have been given a few shall we say 'political referendums' to vote on, which I won't get into here Don't want to have to report myself to the Site Moderation Team . Anywho, the one question I thought I would ask and it is I believe a North America question, and even some places don't practice it here either, is whether to keep Daylight Savings Time or not. This is where we turn our clocks back an hour in the late fall and turn them ahead in the spring an hour. I do believe that it was originally done for farmers, to maximize the amount of daylight that they would have to be outstanding in their field (that was a joke in case you missed it ). Well it seems to be a divisive issue. Some people say the springing back and forward mucks up their sleep for weeks and their attentiveness as well. Others, including doctors says our bodies natural circadian rhythm will get all mucked up with daylight later in the day. So curious how you feel about it without making it political? If you are in a region that has it, do you want to get rid of it, or if you never have had it, does it really matter to you? I guess the big thing is the further north you go, and for my city where it is, in December the sun will come up at 8:30 on MST, and not until 9:30 AM if we stay on MDT.

  5. Well a big hug and thank you to Cia last week for doing the wrap up Before I forget, you have just under a month now to get your Anthologies in!! Last week I was personally out of town, sitting lakeside in a cabin, in the mountains, hiding out on my birthday Needless to say I never got any of your pressies for that day from all of you . I'm just blaming it on the mailman and have moved on So is everybody getting ready for Thanksgiving? Oh wait, the 'mericans in the room have the second Thanksgiving after the 'nadians. Also I don't think the others even have a Thanksgiving So what is your next national holiday, let me know as I'm curious Now shall we look back at the GA news blog from the past week? I think we shall Sunday, Myr started off the Word of the Day without deferring it to another day: Monday, Cia was in with the September CSR Discussion Day interview: Also on Monday, Myr by his own volition had posted another word of the day: Tuesday he was back again to colligate our members to read the word of the day: On Wednesday, he went all cerebral on us: Thursday had Renee coming into the GA Blog and brought us a Anthology Entry Revisted: And if that wasn't enough , Myr was telling us about his pulchritude! Did I get his one right? Friday found Myr showing us again the sequacious nature of him to the great site that GA is!!! Finally on Saturday, for the first time in a while, it was really great to see another article by Comicality published: And to finish off the week with the Word Of the Day, Myr told us a side effect of reading my blogs : We did finish up the month of September. Did we get out of the red on all the categories? Looks like we missed on one : Upcoming Anthology 2021 Anthology #2 Top Theme 1 - A Winding Path - Due October 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #2 Top Theme 2- An Unconventional Gift - Due October 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #2 Pot Luck Themes - Due October 31st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

  6. 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!!! Oops, three Friday, it was time for a an all new edition of Wayne's Prompts. Don't forget if you have any other favourite prompts, send them to @Renee Stevensor @wildone. Well TGIF! Let's play WWTWOTD! What was the Word of the Day? Then it was a surprise on Saturday!! Comicality was back with another great article: But if you thought that was the end of our broadcasting week, you missed the last Word of the Day Now let's see where we are on our Monthly Goals. We are now just over half way through the month: 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.

  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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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! Then our second feature of the week was another round of Wayne's Prompts: Melee, Celebrity, Quid Pro Quo, Sub rosa, Billingsgate, Sibyl, Delectable 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. 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!

  11. 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?

  12. We seem to be well on our way to April. Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods? Are the bees buzzing, the birds chirping, and the flowers growing up? Well I want everyone to take note that we are only about 5 weeks from April 1st. So to get everyone having some fun this year, as last year I think most of us were shell shocked, let's plan a really good April Fools Joke for this year. If you have a good idea share it with everyone so if anyone is drawing blank, they can maybe borrow the idea Unless you are married in the same house Let's skip right to the recap and see what all happened this week at the GA News Blog. Cia was here on Monday with the March CSR Story and Author. I have to admit, both the title and author's name should catch everyone's attention. Wednesday was a return to the ever popular feature among members, Ask An Author 3.0. Make sure you help @astone2292 by submitting some of your favourite stories and 3 thought provoking questions to the Author. Thursday, Renee was back and reminding every single one of you that the upcoming Anthology is just around the corner Now looking back at my initial preamble, lets not do any April Fools jokes of not submitting your Anthology by April 1 Also check out the past Anthology entry featured as well. That brought us to our prompt guru comicfan with another couple of great prompts to get yourself putting pen to paper Finally on Saturday, Comicality was by with some great advice for not only new, but some established authors *cough* @C James *cough* on how to use, or not to use every reader's favourite writing tool, cliffhangers Once again, I hope everyone got a chance to look at Myr's 7 Words of the Day Retrospective, Stratagem, Tenacious, Flagrant, Baleful, Venerable Tergiversation Last but not to be forgotten, our weekly check in on our story goals. Anthologies 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 1 - On The Road - Due by April 1st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 2- Forbidden - Due by April 1st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Pot Luck Themes - Due by April 1st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

  13. Well it's forty below And I don't give a *bleep* Got a heater in my truck And I'm off to the rodeo Now if you don't know this song, you can Youtube it or Google it, but don't have the sound up if little ears might be around It seems I'm stuck in a perpetual groundhog day were everyday since Monday we have been in a extreme winter warning (sustained temperatures of -40) Luckily by Monday we will creep closer to 0 or 32 depending on your temperature scale you are using. The thing is, when it is that cold, I just want to stay under the covers and not come out. So to say the week has been unproductive, would be an understatement. Enough of my whines before you all decide to bottle them and sell it . Let's see what happened this week in the GA News Blog! Did you see on Monday that Renee introduced our newest member of our Super Dooper Review Team, @Talo Segura, and their first review! Then on Wednesday Renee was back on Wednesday with a brand new addition of Author Guess Who? Jump to Thursday, Renee was here again! She had another look back at an Anthology entry from the past, as well as looking ahead to the future: We decided to give Renee the rest of the week off and brought in Wayne to get up to bat with some new Prompts: Saturday had another interesting article from Comicality. Did you check it out? But let's not forget that Myr, who has reproved me many of a time had his daily Words of the Day: Reprove, Infotainment, Salad Days, Tactile, Tin Pot, Argy-bargy, and Etiolate. Let's not forget our goals from last week: Anthologies 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 1 - On The Road - Due by April 1st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 2- Forbidden - Due by April 1st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Pot Luck Themes - Due by April 1st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

  14. So the last week of February already! Monday we are into March and I think some people are looking forward to an early spring! Me, an early spring is the last week of April . Well lets hope that maybe, just maybe, we can have a good spring and jump into a summer of hope I'm holding out for it. This week was yet another busy one. Do you realize we now have 6 days a week of GA blogs, on top of the daily Word of the Day . There is so much to take in I'm glad we have a team of staff and very dedicated volunteers that do it all week after week. So shout out to everyone that puts together the weekly blog features. We had Cia drop by on Monday and she had a good discussion with Sasha Distan for the CSR Discussion Day. Wednesday, there was the big surprise by Renee on the Author Guess Who? Thursday, Renee gave us new feature of a past anthology entry in the Anthology News. Remember, we are about 4 weeks away to get your spring Anthology in. On Friday, Wayne was by with another couple of Prompts to get you thinking, pondering and hopefully writing. To wrap up our blog week, Comicality was by with another Tip for all of us to enjoy. As mentioned above, Myr was here all week long with a Word of a the Day. Refractory, Sangfroid, Elixir, Knavish, Reiterate, Emulate, Ignoble And the thing that 10's of you look forward to every week here is where we were on our story goals this past week: Anthologies 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 1 - On The Road - Due by April 1st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 2- Forbidden - Due by April 1st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Pot Luck Themes - Due by April 1st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

  15. First off, a PSA on behalf of the World Time Federation (WTF) If you live in any of the regions that observes Daylight Savings, it kicked in last night. So if you are late to everything today, don't say I didn't warn ya Well, I'm shocked, shocked I say. I looked out my window today and there was a tiny little white bunny rabbit frolicking around the courtyard. I honestly believe it was the Easter Bunny's scout checking out places for when the big guy (or gal) comes in a few weeks to leave me chocolate. Maybe I should adhere to mom's old adage to not eat what I think is mini chocolate Easter eggs outside where I had seen a bunny before What also shocked me was today's high of 17 C/62.6 F This is too warm for this time of year. I actually wore shorts and sandals when I went to do my grocery shopping earlier today. Enough of my musings you must be thinking . Let's see what happened this week with the Weekly Wrap Up! Monday, Renee strapped on her hockey skates and dropped the puck for another great review from our Review Team. This one specifically from @chris191070: Then on Tuesday, Renee switched things up and put on her cleats and pads and threw a Hail Mary in the hopes of someone scoring a touchdown with guessing who the mystery person is in the Author Guess Who? Then yet again, Renee ran back into the locker room and came out in her best Man United uniform to take to the pitch to bring us our weekly Anthology Entry Revisited. Oh don't forget, there is only 18 days to get your Spring Anthology entry in. Friday, the lights went down and a spotlight came on and comicfan came down the walkway to the ring in the main event for WWE in his best bling. Once dominating in the ring he shared with us all 2 new prompts to get our collective juices flowing Finally on Saturday, Comicality put on his cleats, uniform, slipped in his cup, and went out to the mound to throw out the opening pitch which was an extremely, excellent, extremely, super, writing tip Our good friend Myr was in every day of the week with his broom and rocks and sliding them down the sheet and nailing everyday right on the button with the Word of the Day: Cook's Tour, Capitulate, Grinch, Lycanthropy, Fardel, Austere, Yips Finally is to check the leader board for our story goals.

  16. I'm on holidays this week It's pouring rain outside I guess I can tolerate it as long as it ends on Sunday, I am going camping to the mountains during the week. Nothing like enjoying a hot day by a mountain lake and jump into it to cool down. Are you crazy That water is COLD!!! My boys will be hidden upside of me for at least a week! Well I hope you have a great week as well. We had a bit quieter week here at the GA Blog. Shall we take a look back just in case you missed anything? Hurrah for Monday. It meant that our super dooper Review Team, channeling through @Talo Segura, came through with another Featured Story to either start on right away, or put on your reading list: Thursday completed our broadcasting week with 8 NEW ANTHOLOGY ENTRIES!!! Did you any of them or all of them?

  17. Taxes, taxes, taxes, oh my I do believe my friends to the south have to have their taxes in by April 15th this year, and we up here in the Great White North have to have them in by April 30March 31. Thanks @Mikiesboyfor correcting this. No relief with Covid. I wonder what it would be like to have no taxes whatsoever like some countries in the world. No federal, no provincial/state, no sales tax, etc. I do have to admit that when I do mine and my dad's taxes every year it isn't that big of a deal. Mine are done, but Dad is now eligible for a bunch of credits and deductions that his dementia is so bad . So he is in a refund position without that, so I need to apply for all of that before I submit. Which is okay if you are getting a refund, no cut off. For some reason the government isn't too anxious to get your tax return if they owe you money So do taxes stress you out? Do you have an accountant or do you go to a tax service? Do you do your own? For our members not in the US and Canada, what is your day of reckoning with your taxman? Well I guess I should bill the US and Canadian Governments for this PSA So now what actually happened at the blog this week? Did we have any big surprises ? I hope you read each one dedicatedly each day Monday, Renee dropped in for Renee week, and was kind enough to bring us a fabulous review from @Parker Owens of our even more fabulous Review Team: Wednesday, was the big reveal day for the Author Guess Who, brought to you by Renee : Oh look, Renee was in on Thursday too with our Weekly Anthology Entry Revisited: But you think that would be enough for her, but noooooo, she finished off the week with some big news about the upcoming Anthology and ones going forward. Make sure you read this very important notice!! Finally we here at the GA New Bog convinced Renee to take a much deserved day off. Stepping in with another great Writing Tip was our Writing Tip Master, Comicality: And let's not forget about our trooper day in and day out, Myr. He gave us a word each and every day to challenge our vocabulary skills. Honestly now, how many do you already know each week? Ailurophile, Friable, Promulgate, Oblivion, Visceral, Napery, Pasquinade Last thing that changes week to week to week is the story goals. How did we do last week?

  18. Well happy first day of Spring. Not too often I will share a joke, but @AC Benus' status update had me laughing . It is kind of related to Easter, well loosely to Easter It has a rabbit in it And a priest and minister , Curious yet? https://gayauthors.org/profile/18130-ac-benus/?status=143484&type=status Go over and enjoy So what happened this week at the GA News Blog you ask! Well I will tell you! Free of charge, no subscription fee, no monthly payments. Free, free, free Monday, Cia got us a brand new Classic Author Feature. I remember @Altimexisback when we were both spring chickens in these parts Now if we have a Classic Author Feature, we most definitely have to follow up with a Classic Author Excerpt on Wednesday: ** You only have 11 days left to get in your spring anthology to the Anthology Proof Team** Now with that said, Renee was in with her weekly Anthology Entry Revisited: Only on Fridays do we turn the keys over to the shop for Wayne. After all these years, I trust him with a master key to the place He had for us a couple new Prompts: Finally we reached the end of our broadcasting week with another great Writing Tip brought to you by Comsie. Now did each and everyone of you be a good student and learn the words of the day and practice using them, as Myr did everyday?

  19. Now anyone that follows me, yeah, all ten of you , heard that my computer decided that the warranty is up, and it gave me 5 years of loyal service that it was ready to hit the recycling bin Went out and got a new one, paid the warranty (is it worth it? ), and the $150 to transfer my data from the old hard drive to the new one. I asked, is that possible if the old one is dead? Oh yeah, no problem. Fast forward 24 hours, yeah, your hard drive is not in good condition and we can't transfer the data. I said, okay, I paid you $150 to transfer the data and when I questioned it I was told no problem. So do I get my $150 back? Well, give us another day and we will see if we can do a slow transfer overnight. And as far as the refund, no, we tried and that was what you paid for. Then 24 hours again, and they call and everything has been moved over. Just need to pull the hard drive and return to me and they can recycle the rest of the box. So glad I got what I paid for, but will definitely take that into consideration before just signing the bottom of the work order. On top of all this, one of my favourite authors posted a nice lengthy chapter when I was without Since I'm with computer again, this means you get the Weekly Wrap Up from me . Monday was Cia's day to shine She brought us the April CSR Feature. Make sure you read along and check back in for the Discussion Day! Usually Wednesday would be AAA Day with @astone2292, but without computer, I never got around to transferring and featuring it until later in the day, so we kept it up Thursday too. Then we finally got to our regular posting schedule when Wayne tried to light a fire under us to give a prompt a try Finally we wrapped up the week with a new Article from Comsie, all about Character Motivation: Were you able to check out the Words of the Day? if you missed one, here is the past weeks: Incisive, Finesse, Debonair, Organoleptic, Uncanny, Extemporaneous, Gullible Last thing on the agenda is to check in with the story goals: Anthologies 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 1 - On The Road - Extended to May 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Top Theme 2- Forbidden - Extended to May 31st, 2021 2021 Anthology #1 Pot Luck Themes - Extended to May 31st, 2021 Anthology 101 - In the Anthology Forum.

  20. Hello everyone, sounds like I finally got the recognition I deserved . You all can now call me the Grand Poo-bah (check out the Words Of The Day). Actually I laughed when I saw that. For years and years I worked for the Calgary Flames as a rink rat, but I was isolated at the other end of the rink from the other 3 guys I worked with. They monthly had one of the three be the Grand Poo-bah. But looks like I get the name in the end . Speaking of being called names . I thought I would check in this week on what your childhood nicknames were? Not ones that maybe the school yard bully called you or an older sibling, but what about endearing nicknames from when you were growing up? I was always called Rooster, but never knew why? A while ago I was perusing the interwebs and found that the pro hockey team in the town I was born were called the Roosters. Also there was Stevie and when mom was mad at me, or @Krista, I was Steven . So what about you? Now before I start, this is a reminder that you have about a month and a half to get your Spring Anthologies in with the extension!! If you started, get 'er wrapped up and into the Anthology Review Team . Now back to Monday, where Renee featured another great Review brought to you by @spikey582. Make sure you check it out!!! Then on Friday, we had dependable comicfan come in with a few more prompts for you: Then to bring in some context to your lives, we had another thought provoking article by Comicality: So those words of the day I was talking about? Myr brought us seven new ones this week: Apparatchik, Poo-bah, Picayune, Bandbox, Whinge, Inordinate, Quisling Not so bad this week on the story goals.

  22. Well hello happy campers . I know it is the Memorial Day long weekend in the US of A, and the Late Bank Holiday long weekend in the UK. Also if you live in Australia's Capital Territory, it is the Reconciliation Day long weekend for them. So did any of you get out camping? Do they call it camping in the UK and Australia? I know here we have trailers or recreational vehicles and tents to go camping, but don't you all call them caravans? Oh wait, if you are out camping, you won't be here to tell me your camping . We had a productive week at the GA News Blog this week . Monday, @Renee Stevens was kind enough to share a great review done by our super Review Team and especially @Aditus.

  23. Bettlejuice, Bettlejuice, Beetlejuic................... Whoops, just about said it 3 times So this is the Victoria Day long weekend up here in Canadia and in my little neck of the woods, although we consider this is as the official kick off to summer, we are getting rain and snow So how about my fellow Canucks? How are you making out? And to our 'merican neighbours to the south, any big plans for your upcoming Memorial Day long weekend next week? I know I have to check every year with a friend that writes schedules down there and remind her of the US long weekends or she schedules everyone in as a regular week Oh, Beetlejuice. It was cold and miserable today so I went and was trying to find a movie and found one of the few movies I ever went to see twice in the theatre (Ferris Buhler's Day off, the other). I came upon one of the funniest movies IMHO. So what 'old' movies have you seen in the past little while that you haven't seen in years and years? And just to take us into the wrap up On Monday, Cia kicked off the week with the May Classic Author Feature: Only to be followed up with a great Classic Author Excerpt: Then Renee was back with a reminder of the May 31st deadline for Anthologies to be submitter to the proof team. She also followed up with a great feature on one of our previous entries by Carlos Hazday: On Friday, Wayne, although under the weather, got everyone a couple of new prompts to tackle: Finally on Saturday, we had a brand new article from Comicality: And what did Myr bring us all this week for our vocabulary skills? Well here is the list: Facilitate, Cabbage, Confidant, Diabolical, Ambient, Hypocorism, Hallmark Last but not least, lets check how we did on our goals last week: And what a great job you all did!!!!

  24. Well how the heck are you? First things first, thank you to Cia for stepping in last moment for me last week when I was suddenly hit with a wave of nausea again. Unfortunately still side effects of a new medicine. I know when I reached out to her, she and her hubby had just settled down to watching Justin Bieber's, Never Say Never . Okay, maybe the last part isn't the whole truth . I really can't believe how a week can make a difference. Last Sunday, I think we had a high of 2 (37F) and ugly. This weekend, we are sitting in the mid 20's (mid 70's) and it is beautiful. This week I decided to start working off the Covid 19 lbs. that somehow doubled to 38 over the past year . Wish me luck, but I tell you, getting motivated for a walk is so much easier when you don't have to double your body weight in clothing to go out. Hmmm, wonder if I would be more motivated if I walked naked . With the disturbing image in your minds let's see what we have had happen in the GA Blog this week. Monday, Renee shared a great story review about one of our longest running stories and currently still posting here at GA. @Timothy M. did the story great justice. Then we took an extended break until everyone's favourite prompt guru, comicfan, popped in to share a couple more new prompts: Finally on Saturday, Myr took the reigns to this rickety cart and brought us a new new discussion on Article Day: Now, did you go in daily and learn some new words for not only your writing, but your vocabulary? If not, never too late as they are all condensed here Vanilla, Tatterdemalion, Pyrotechnics, Colloquy, Alopecia, Touchstone, Minuscule Lastly, how about those goals!

  25. So put up your hand if you have had a cold this year To tell the truth, I don't get them that often, but this year wearing a mask and avoiding other people as much as I have, I never thought anything unusual about it. Then Thursday came . I woke up on Thursday AM and had a headache and stuffy nose. The headache seemed to be right in my sinuses. Not having any other symptoms other than the occasional cough, I didn't feel I was on the road to COVID. Thank god!! Well two days later, after lots of water, some cold meds to dry the sinuses and no cough syrup, I slept most of today I actually feel pretty good So was it stress and exhaustion from work? Who knows. Just hope if you have/had a cold, that it is a quick recovery. Don't want to be second guessing every ailment this year. Now to this weeks wrap up! Monday, Cia fox trotted into the GA Blog and brought us all the January CSR Discussion Day: Wednesday, with a rose in her teeth doing a tango, Renee brought us the Author Guess Who Reveal. Did you guess right? Not to be forgotten from the previous day, Renee was back on Thursday with a tap dance flourish and brought us a new Anthology Entry Revisited: Friday we saw Wayne waltz in with a couple more interesting Prompts: Doing the floss (much better than Backpack Boy), Comicality had another great Article to take in: Myr finished off the dance week and was doing the macarena every day this week, with a new Word Of The Day (hey, I could have gone with the chicken dance ) Domicile, Talisman, Trivial, Futurity, Elephantiasis, Protean and Banausic.
