  1. Wow, that week went by in a whirl Not that I was swept off my feet by Prince Charming, but just overall it was a quick week. I could of sworn a day or two ago that I was doing last weeks wrap up. Instead of me babbling on, I want to call to attention our Annual Anthology Topic Poll. This is a great concept that I think is turning out not only some great topics, but great engagement across the site! When you see a lot of votes you think oh well, what will mine count? In this case your vote is as important and carries as much weight as everyone else's. The more votes we get entered, and remember you get to choose your top 3, I'm hoping the more motivation for Authors to get involved in this Anthology will be the result! Then more will be also motivated to read it when it comes out somewhere around October/November. It is a win win situation for Authors and Readers!! Now that I got your attention on that, I will do something unusual and start off with the Thursday blog. It has all the information for the voting for the Anthology. What the heck, lets toss out the usual routine Not sure if this is Slytherin's cousin or not. Did you get up this morning and log on and get a chance to read Comsies' Writing Article? It does discuss an interesting concept. Are you curious what Myr brought up this week on his Deep Dive? What about the super, duper, Review Team's Featured Story on Monday? Now here is a question to see just how old your are . What do Ricardo Montalbán and Hervé Villechaize have in common? If you guess smooth Corinthian Leather, you're wrong . To get the answer, check out the prompt themes that Cole Matthews gave us this week: Myr was busy every morning this week around 2 AM EDT getting the Words of the Day ready for us ursine, sartorial, prank, amorous, mignonette, plumage, madcap Upcoming Writing Events Poetry Anthology - Seasons, will be due April 1st 2024.

  3. It seems like when I have nothing better to say, my momma's saying comes out: If you don't have something nice to say, then don't say it at all. Funny thing is, I don't have anything bad to say about anyone. This week In an effort to bypass Valentines, but feel to bring up if you want, what are some of your mom's momisms? Or do you have a doozie or two of dadisms. One sage piece of advice that my dad imparted on me at a very young age was, don't pee into the wind. I wish I had paid more attention on more than one occasion . I don't have any kids, so I won't pass any on to them. Well, I think my godson is still in therapy for some I imparted on him . Now before we kick off this week ahead on Monday, why don't we look at the week past. Monday was an introduction to an all new CSR Feature. This one has piqued my interest. Check it out: Tuesday we went spear fishing when Myr took us diving again. You should see what scary things he brought up to the surface: Wednesday, Aaron was at it again. Check out the new Ask An Author 3.0 to get an insight on this author: Thursday, he just wouldn't go away . Wait, does this fall under the don't say anything at all category . You know I love you bud Aaron was back to perplex all of us with this months Author Guess Who: Then yesterday, Comsie was in with a new article.

  5. 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all though the GA house not a creature was stirring, not even a bear, penguin, wolf, eagle, zombie, tiger, cat, or Cindy Lou Who. The stockings were hung by Steve's dryer with care. In hopes that St. Myr soon would be there The GA community were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of naked men, or women, danced in their heads. And Valkyrie in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap (in separate beds, of course) When out on the roof there arose such a clatter, I sprung from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the surveillance app I flew like a flash, opened it up on my iPhone, and selected the roof camera, recording it in case I could make me some cash. The moon on the breast (eww) of the new fallen snow gave the lustre of midday to objects below when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature Mustang and sixteen tiny volunteers With a little mid-age driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. @Myr More rapid than eagles (unless it is Talonrider), his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted them by name: "Now @Cia! Now @Graeme! Now, @Reader1810! and @drpaladin! On, @Aditus! On, @Valkyrie! (when did she sneak out of bed?) On, @Cole Matthews! On, @TalonRider! On, @Timothy M.! On, @spike382! On, @Parker Owens! On, @W_L! On, @Comicality!, On, @astone2292! On, @rec! On, @wildone! (wait, I didn't sign up to pull St. Myr around the world!) To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!" As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky so up to the dwelling-top the coursers they flew with a sleigh full of stories, and St. Myr too. And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little volunteer. As I closed out of the app and was turning around, down the dryer vent St. Myr came with a bound. (who has a chimney anymore?) He was dressed all in faux fur, from his head to his foot, (no real fur as it might upset some members) and his clothes were all tarnished with lint and a sock. A bundle of stories he had flung on his back, and looked like an owner just opening his pack. His eyes--how they twinkled! His dimples, how gay! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a sun ray. (needed something that rhymed with gay) His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the day old growth was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. (not sure what he was smoking in his pipe) He had a broad face and a little beer belly, that shook when he laughed, like a bowl of jelly. He was sturdy and strong, a right jolly middle-aged elf and I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself A wink of his eye and a twist of his head soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. (did I call him chubby! I might have something to dread) He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled the stockings with stories, and turned with a jerk. And laying a finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the dryer vent he rose. He sprang to his Mustang, to his team he gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all at GA, and to all a good night!" Original version Clement Clarke Moore. Original authorship claim in 1837. Now for something that we really need some help from all our budding and seasoned authors, especially those that were fans of Carlos Hazday's vast collection of prose. December 27th at 11:59 PM EST is the deadline to submit your tribute stories for Carlos Hazday. All the information is here. It is not too late to start and submit. On another note, there is snow on the ground this morning, but we are supposed to get possibly up to 0 today with sun and -1 tomorrow. I've cancelled my trip to the North Pole and the jolly old fellow has a reprieve once again this year! Now to wrap up the past week!

  6. On the 8th day of Christmas, by true love gave to meeeeee, divorce papers!!! 😮 Well, that isn't how the song goes But if any of you do get divorce papers on Sunday, I am so sorry To tell the truth, all I can remember from that song is the five golden rings, two turtle doves and a penguin in a pear tree This shall lead into the question of the week! Hmmm, do I have a question of the week every week? So rather than just asking what your favourite Christmas song is, I want to know what is your favourite Christmas song that you know word for word Jingle Bells only counts if you know all the verses If you feel up to it, sing out the words to your song below in your reply. FYI, I won't be putting anything down. I'm a one or two verse kinda guy We had another very busy week here at the GA News Blog. I think I will be asking @Myr for a Christmas bonus this year A bonus of 2% of $0 is what? Any accountants out there that can let me know how much I will get? Monday. Well Monday I messed up I tried to replace @Timothy M. and do the layout of this months Review Team's Feature Story. I failed. I did apologize to @Mancunian for misspelling one of the main characters name in the blog title and story title as well. Shameful. At least @spike382 gave a great review. Make sure you check this story out. I read it before doing the blog and it is a really nice short story: Tuesday, @Myr took over the blog and guess what? He did it right : Thursday was 18th episode of the Author Guess Who by @astone2292. I got my guess in, kind of, do you? Looks like on Friday, our resident penguin, @Valkyrie, took the prompt team another step towards the holidays: Finally on Saturday, we got our weekly treat from @Comicality with another Writing Article: Here is the words of the week : easement, neptunium, retrench, indefatigable, machete, perishable, mewl Upcoming Writing Events Long May You Run - A tribute to Carlos Hazday Entries due on Dec. 27, 2023.

  7. It is starting to look a lot like Christmas I may have mentioned we had a big dump of snow before Halloween, but that was all melted off since the first week of November. Then we have had temps in the mid to high teens without a drop of moisture until last Thursday. We got a good dumping of snow. I would like my Christmas to be white, but not looking like it as the temp will be in the mid teens (celcius) again next week. Maybe I will have to make a trip to the North Pole In the meantime, before I leave and need to have Cia cover for me as I make my way up north, shall we wrap up this past week? Yesterday, Comsie finished off the week with a great Writing Article: Friday we had the Prompt gang at it again: Thursday we heard from Val on the upcoming 2024 Writing Events: Wednesday was the 1st one in December.

  9. Hey! Last week we changed the clocks in a lot of places, who changed the days this week? Up here in Western Canada, yesterday was Remembrance Day were we remember all the veterans and peacekeepers that all served in our forces and some that died doing so. It is actually a holiday I believe in all Commonwealth countries, but others do a bigger ceremony on other holidays. When I say Western Canada, I know we have it as a stat holiday. This means this weekend has me mixed up. We are taking Monday off in lieu of yesterday. What it all comes down too, I thought today was Saturday for some reason. Now before Val and Krista start digging out brochures looking for places to put for the rest of my years, I did remember when I woke up this morning. So things eventually will get done Now that my blurb is over, lets get down to what we all are here for, the Weekly Wrap Up! Monday was Cia's opportunity to come knocking and gave us the November CSR Feature. Did you check it out? Tuesday the door was left open for Myr to do a Historical Deep Dive: First Wednesday of the Month, that meant Aaron brought us another edition of Ask An Author 3.0: Whoooooooo are you? Who, who, who, who. Aaron has published his second edition of the revised Author Guess Who. Who do you think it is? Hey, on Friday we got back to our Prompt again. I'm hoping that you can get some ideas on putting the pen back to the paper: And what a busy week it has been. On Saturday, Comicality brought us a writing article to complete all 7 days this week with a GA News Blog feature!

  10. Just a reminder to all, you have less than 2 months to get your favourite GA staff member their Christmas present. Maybe I shouldn't say that, I will be like Harry Potter on Christmas morning receiving presents from his Aunt and Uncle and lovely cousin Dudley! One year a 50 pence coin which is 60 cents USD, a toothpick and finally a single tissue . Believe it or not, that is my first HP reference in my life Now if you couldn't wait for Christmas, Val had an early present for you again this week. More Anthology stories!!! With Halloween on Tuesday, I'm curious what your plans are? Anything? You going to hand out candy, are you maybe a teacher or someone that will dress up for work that day? Will you get dressed at all that day 😮 That could be really scary . I'm watching a Junior A hockey game on TV in the background and a banana just ran across the screen What happened this week, Steve? In a bold hint to tell me to move along... Steve did the weekly update on Sunday: Tuesday, Myr did a Paranormal Deep Dive: The only other GA Blog this week was our Anthology story announcement.

  13. Did you put away your whites? I boxed up my white jeans, my white joggers, my white cargos, my white shorts, my white undies, my white socks, my white shirts (dress, polo, t, and others), my white sneakers, and white jackets and even my white belt . Now what am I talking about ? When I was growing up, the saying was you could not wear white after Labour Day. Where that came from, I have no clue. But being the fashionista that I am, I don't do any of it . Sort of a rebel with a cause . Up here in Canadia, after Labour Day is kind of the official end of summer , not meteorological but still the end to us. So we turn our sights to fall, autumn, or whatever else you call it. I would say we look forward to the leaves changing but it has been so dry in my neck of the woods, that started happening weeks ago. Now I'm sure I will have that odd snowball tossed in my direction, but snow is one of my favourite weather events. The way everything is blanketed in white, less people out on the roads and every sound sounds crisper in the cooler air. Shall we have betting pool to see who can guess the first snowfall in my city? Let's say $1.00 CDN or what equates to $0.23 USD to the winner. Enough promotion of gambling on the site. We don't need the state gaming commissions looking into my blog !

Go check it out and git to reading: Wednesday, Aaron took the reigns for the latest feature of Ask An Author 3.0: Thursday, Aaron was back with the big reveal on Author Guess Who.

  14. Whew it was warm out today. Even with lots and lots of sunscreen, I'm a little red . Luckily when I got home around dinner time, I sat down and turned on Netflix and much to my surprise season 3 had appeared on a series that I really liked the first two seasons of in the spring, Ragnarok.

Josh was born into a very poor family in a very conservative rural community. After the death of his mother he lives with his grandfather, who is emotionally, verbally and physically abusive. The only bright spot in his life is Ethan his best friend. When he is left alone during an illness, the bullies conspire to sexually abuse him and embarrass him in front of the entire community. Ethan stands by his friend and shows him the support and love he has been craving.

  17. Hope everyone has had a great week! I have a couple reminders and an announcement, so let's get right into it!!! Announcement: Keep an eye on your email! Due to the pending GDPR legislation the EU has hit everyone with, GA has to send out a new sign-up form that must be filled out if you wish to continue to get the site newsletter. ALL members who do not fill this out will be unsubscribed based on the legislation that we have no choice but to follow. There will be several reminders and opportunities to sign back up, but we want to warn everyone ahead of time that it's coming just so you're not surprised. Reminder #1: Anthology entries are due in to the proof team no later than May 15th! Time is running out, so get your story sent into Valkyrie as soon as possible! Reminder #2: @Carlos Hazday is looking for questions for the Ask An Author blog! Without your questions, he can't keep the feature going, so make sure to send in your questions for your favorite authors. Right now he's especially looking for questions for an Admin & Moderator edition, so if you have a question for an author who just happens to be an Admin or Moderator, make sure to get those to him ASAP! Admin's and Moderators that have stories on site include: Myr, Cia, A.J., wildone, Renee Stevens, & Graeme. I believe Carlos already has a question for Cia. I think that's all the announcements and reminders, though I feel like I'm forgetting something. Hopefully not! Now, lets take a look at what happened in the various GA Blogs this week. Yep! I forgot something! Have you read the idiom stories that were part of the latest newsletter game?
