  1. The first week of September has arrived and things are a changing! I've notice a bit of a uptick in the forums and stories and also feeling a change in the weather and length of days. I never understood how people who live closer to the equator have little to no deviation in the length of days. Just seems strange to me . Then the further you go south or north towards the poles, you get longer days/shorter nights and visa versa as the equinoxes are reached. But then again, it would be strange to have 24 hours of light, or dark . Currently here, the sun is fading out at around 7:30, but by the end of October, that will probably be 5:00 pm. So are any of you affected by SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)? I personally just want to curl up and sleep more as the days shorten. Maybe I really am a bear and just want to hibernate So shall we take a look at our slightly busier week? Monday, Cia lead off the month with a new CSR Feature. Did you check it out? Then on Wednesday, Carols took a great approach and gave us a new and ever popular Ask An Author 2.0: On Thursday, Myr revived the weekly posting of Anthology Thursday. Now like the way that the members asked the Anthologies to be spread out over the month, we will be doing the same with the features! Friday, prompts galore were flowing Comicfan was back with a couple of new ones: Make sure to check out these two new Anthology points, first and second one!!

  2. So I really have nothing to talk about this week in the Weekly Update preamble, so I thought I would throw out a joke and some useless trivia Why did the chicken cross the playground? Did you know that giraffes only need 5 to 30 minutes of sleep in a 24 hour period They often achieve that in quick naps that may last only a minute or two at a time! Now, onto what happened around these parts this week! Monday, Renee gave us a great story review from @Puppilull: Wednesday was the last day to get in the 2020 Anthology Theme Selections, so Renee revisited the blog from a couple of weeks earlier: On Friday, Wayne popped by to give some new ideas to get some new ideas flowing from our heads to paper: Anthologies 2019 Fall Anthology: Fall From Grace - Due November 15th 2019 Fall Anthology: Raincheck - Due November 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Guess the Author: Open to all GA authors.

  3. I had an idea today I think we should start a swap your life club here at GA! Why you ask and how? Well, we all live in a area that seems to be effected by the weather right now around the world, so what if you could trade lives with another member that wants your weather for a bit. So @Slytherin for example says she is too cold in the wild north of Scandinavia and @Daddydavek says he is burning up in the Mid West of the US. Well, those two will swap places for a week or two But this means for everything! Daddy will have to go to work and perform LBO's occupation and in turn she will have to do all Daddy's yard work and such and chase around his grandson on a daily basis! So what do you think? It seems like weather is something that ties us all together, so why not . So let me know who you want to swap lives with for a bit. Well enough of that great idea, but bad logistical one and move onto the wrap up. Please also remember you have until August 14th to get your submission in for the 2020 Anthology Themes!! Monday, Cia graced us with a new CSR Feature for the Month of August: Then on Wednesday, Carlos dropped in with a great new Ask An Author 2.0: Wednesday we also had a Announcement and Technology Blog that wasn't featured, but was still a good one to check out. Will explain that new widget we all see on the home page: Finally on Friday, Wayne aka comicfan dropped a couple of new prompts on us: Anthologies 2020 Anthology Theme Selection - Open until August 14th here 2019 Fall Anthology: Fall From Grace - Due November 15th 2019 Fall Anthology: Raincheck - Due November 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Guess the Author: Open to all GA authors.

  4. So no surprise this week. Hopefully you all have been keeping up to date with Shark Week I have a lot of respect for all the parents out there, I just got back from 5 days of camping in the Rockies with my 3 nephews under the age of 12 with no power or internet or even cell phone coverage Well now that I'm sure that some of you are digesting that horror of that last statement, shall we see what has happened while I was out playing with bears, mountain lions, and cougars (and 3 kids). Monday, we started to wrap up the month of July with a Cia leading us in the CSR Discussion Day: Wednesday, Renee let everyone know about the start of the 2020 Theme Selection. So this is your chance as Authors, Poets, Editors, Readers and more to choose next year's themes! Friday was comicfan's turn to let everyone loose on a couple of new prompts: Anthologies 2020 Anthology Theme Selection - Open until August 14th here 2019 Fall Anthology: Fall From Grace - Due November 15th 2019 Fall Anthology: Raincheck - Due November 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Story Recommendations: Open to all GA authors & readers.

  6. I have an announcement to make, I'm out of here!! Well now that the cheering and clapping has died down, I'll just say it is a temporary reprieve from Steve .

  7. So I was down at the Stampede tonight to about 12:30 am and I met this nice couple from Australia. I asked if they knew @Graeme, but surprisingly they did not They decided to come over here for their winter and our summer When I asked them where they were from, they said Wagga Wagga, NSW . I thought to myself, self, why does Australia have such funny names? Then I thought it my be Aboriginal names, and who am it to judge? Here in the Great White North, we have Moosejaw, and here's a tongue twister, Saskatoon Saskatchewan so do you have any strange named towns/cities in your neck of the woods? And onto the wrap up, after my strange musings... Monday, Timothy M. did an excellent story review to hopefully get us to check out another great story here at GA: Wednesday, Cia popped in to solicit feedback from you, the members. If you haven't seen what she is looking for, pop back into the blog: Friday, our Favourite Prompt Guru, found us a few fabulous fun ideas to get us all writing: Anthologies 2019 Fall Anthology: Fall From Grace - Due November 15th 2019 Fall Anthology: Raincheck - Due November 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Story Recommendations: Open to all GA authors & readers.

  8. I've had enough rain in the past week to float an ark, or at least consider to build one So If did build my ark, who should I bring two of? Who would you bring on it if you could choose anyone? After all this is an open invitation to all of you, plus one, to come on the GA cruise of a lifetime Enough of this silliness Steve, get onto the wrap up 😠 Oh, you are so not invited onto my ark!!! Meanwhile..... On Monday, Cia had a really engaging set of questions and audience participation in this month's CSR Discussion Day Then on Thursday, Renee did up a great summary of the Spring Anthology and all the people, authors, volunteers, and staff that put it all together!

  9. Belated Winter Solstice for our friends down south and a Happy Summer Solstice for those of us in the North Except it is like the whole world is mixed up, we had snow an hour west of the city here, and so did multiple places across the states too! Some up to 2 feet, or 61cm Well no matter if it is snowing, raining, or sunny, you can always count on GA to be here with a ton of new reading and happenings going on. On Monday Cia brought us the Classic Author Feature of the Month who is @David McLeod Did you download the banner available? Then on Wednesday we had the Classic Author Excerpt from his story; Pilots: Finally on Thursday we had the fourth and final installment of the Spring Anthologies brought to us by Renee. 4 more great stories to immerse yourself in!

  10. Well this turned out to be a very interesting week here at the GA News Blog. It wasn't planned this way, but it just worked out that 3 of the 4 entries were like the 4 of the planets lining up with the sun. In this case, the sun is Tim aka @Mikiesboy Monday, Renee shared with us a great review written up by @Cole Matthews: Then, this is where things started to fall in place! Tuesday, Graeme announced our newest Signature Author, @Mikiesboy: Jump ahead a couple of days, and Renee was back with another round of the Spring Anthology. 4 new stories and links to get to the previous 2 announced releases! So I said 3 of 4 entries this week, well what is the 3rd involving Tim? By total coincidence the list I'm using had the below Reader Recommended Story. Any one want to hazard a guess before scrolling down who's story was recommended?

  11. We are now a week into the month of June, and a lot of places around the world celebrate Pride in June. How about your neck of the woods? My city actually does Pride the first weekend of September, but I don't know why . I've heard some chatter around the site about good, and unfortunately some bad, already happening. Tell us all about the good! Did it seem like a short week in the blogs? That's because there were no anthologies posted this week due to Renee ending up hospitalized Thursday morning to have her appendix out. She assures me that barring any complications anthologies will resume this coming week. Oh, I'm also going to put out a request for all members to PM me some of your story suggestions to feature in the weekly update. Some of you might be shy, but I'd really like to hear from you! Just needs to be a complete story or serial that you would like to give a shout out to everyone as a good story to read. Let's jump now into the wrap up. Monday was a new CSR feature for the month of June: Wednesday, Carlos took over the blog for an extended period of time for the ever popular AAA: Finally wrapping up the week was Comsie with an GA Article on Moments: Anthologies 2019 Fall Anthology: Fall From Grace - Due November 15th 2019 Fall Anthology: Raincheck - Due November 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Story Recommendations: Open to all GA authors & readers.

  17. I'm shocked I'm surprised I'm flabbergasted And you all should be too! When I found this out yesterday I was left with my mouth agape . Just when you thought you knew a guy, you find out how little you know! And then, to top it all off, he chooses to use deceit and misguidance to throw everyone further off the track. It has been pointed out that he didn't lie, but to me he might have just well have . I'm not willing to turn my back on him and I think no one else should either . Author Guess Who #2 Reveal The author for our second Author Guess Who was..... Dodger You can check out his questionnaire answers here. And check out these two stories! So now that we all have recovered from this little bit of news shall we see what happened on the GA Blog this week!

  18. So Spring is here! Sports is underway for starting their seasons or finishing them off. As I know a few follow sports and others probably come here to ignore them , I shall not say no more LOL.

  19. So just in case you missed it GA underwent a Software upgrade on Saturday. So far I haven't noticed any differences but I'm sure that is a good thing . In case you did miss the announcements, Myr did put everything in a nice, neat, little blog: Now let's look at the rest of the GA Blog for the week! Monday, Cia lead us on the CSR Discussion Day: Wednesday, was another addition of Guess Who? I have to admit, this one has stumped a lot of people Thursday the echidna from down under, took over with a new Signature Author Announcement: Friday flew in with comicfan, and a few more prompts to tickle your mind Finally on Saturday, Comsie has a serious discussion about one of the most important things to me: Anthologies 2019 Spring Anthology: In the Stars - Due May 15th 2019 Spring Anthology: Snapped - Due May 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Story Recommendations: Open to all GA authors & readers.

Just a reminder, I am still looking for completed stories or series for the weekly blog. If you have a favourite, or two, or more, make sure you send me a PM @wildone I have one left, so send me some...please Cia started the week off with our introduction to a new Classic Author Feature: Then on Wednesday, she was back and had a Excerpt from our Classic Author Feature: On Friday our prompt Guru, Comicfan, started posting the prompts himself on the Blog again.

  21. So, don't tell anyone but I think Renee missed her hour of sleep this week . This makes less work for me, and gives me something to tease her about . I do have to admit that I don't have a lil' one under that age of 1 that I'm tending to day in and day out, so I guess I shall forgive her Why don't we all share our love . On a more sad note, we have members in New Zealand that we should share our love with too . Monday, Renee introduced us to another featured story from our Review Team. Jump to Friday where we had not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 prompts this week! Saturday was a celebration and milestone for Comicality, 50 GA Articles are under his belt!

  22. Lucky I'm doing this tonight before I go to bed, as tomorrow, don't come looking to borrow a cup of sugar (do people actually do that?) as I might bite your head off . Yes, last night was this biannual silly thing called Daylight Savings Time. If you don't have this annoying time shift in your neck of the woods, it resets our clocks an hour ahead or behind to accommodate for longer days for the summer and shorter days for the winter and energy consumption. Unfortunately Saturday night was the kick in for Daylight savings time, and some annoyingly happy person said, "Let's Spring Forward", but never considered that I'm losing a very important hour of sleep . Oh well, I should be back to my usual, chipper, happy, self around the end of June . Shall we look back on the week of GA Blogs? Monday, Cia introduced us to our March CSR Feature, so start to read and come back on March 25th Wednesday was another round of one of our most popular features, Ask An Author 2.0 from Carlos! Friday, instead of having some Prompts, Graeme introduced us to our newest Classic Author: Then on Saturday, Comicality gave us some ideas to get something everyone needs: Anthologies 2019 Spring Anthology: In the Stars - Due May 15th 2019 Spring Anthology: Snapped - Due May 15th Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Story Recommendations: Open to all GA authors & readers.

  23. I was just about to head to bed and rest my weary head, when I said to myself, "Self, you have to do the weekly Wrap Up!" So here it is . Also, still looking for some more completed story suggestions to feature Monday, Cia had our CSR Discussion Day from February's CSR story: Then on Wednesday, Renee brought us another great addition of Improve & Encourage: On Friday, we had some prompts, but I guess I was asleep at the wheel and maybe we didn't feature them Yesterday was Comsie's chance to take things over with another great GA Article.

Except for the ferals. Battles for territory, fighting persecution from the humans, for the right to rule, have echoed down through the ages. In these modern times things are different, easier. Laws are made--and enforced--and peace, of a sorts, is possible. Some seek to end that. 2. Two of a Kind A hot steamy jungle, a plague in the past and present and two men who are destined to be mates. Volatile tempers erupt in a fiery tale of romance and magic. 3. Hypnotic Davis has been alone for a long time. Between his club and his job essentially as a mercenary for Velaku, the local Carthera leader who let him live in his territory, he has little time to worry about finding a mate. If that is even possible for one of his kind. That doesn't mean he doesn't want one though. Recommended by @Renee Stevens
  24. I guess there is no completed stories or poems on the site that are worth making a shout out to Well, there is one so thanks to that person for giving us a great recommendation to put at the end of this week's Wrap Up! In case you missed it in my ramblings last week, we were hoping to have you the readers (if you read on site, you are a reader ) to recommend a completed poem, story or series to have featured at the end of the Wrap Up. All you have to do is go to my profile @wildone, click on the little blue box with an envelope saying Message, and send me one, two, three or more completed story/poem recommendations. It won't be like the more in depth blog reviews, but more a shout out to an author/poet by a reader and the blurb they have shared with the story. Check out this weeks at the bottom! So what happened at the GA Blog this week you ask? Monday, Cia brought us the February Classic Author Feature! It even came with a snazzy signature banner you can use if you want. As expected, this meant Tuesday we had the Classic Author Excerpt: It was a hop, skip and a jump over to Friday where Renee shared a couple more prompts from our prompt guru, comicfan: Saturday we got another great article from Comicality: Blog Opportunities Ask An Author: Send your questions for your favorite authors to @Carlos Hazday (no questions = no Ask An Author) Story Recommendations: Open to all GA authors & readers.

Things go from bad to crazy with the opening of a set of secrets that no one could have prepared him for. He quickly wonders whom he can trust, who is working for 'them,' and why this misfortune fell upon his shoulders in the first place. A twisting thread through history pulls him tighter and tighter, and eventually, either he or the binding may snap. Recommended by @Mikiesboy
