  1. So what is up in your neck of the woods? I mean weather related. I know that there is hurricane after hurricane battering the SE US, I know the West of the US is on fire, we have smoke and breathing advisories up here in Canadia 😮 I know it has been a early fall for some areas. What is happening over in Europe and Asia right about now? Then we can ask for a weather update from the South Americans, Africans and Australians for the southern peeps who are transitioning to spring. Did I hear about brush fires already starting up already in Australia? Well here, and down in Wyoming and Colorado, on the Labour Day long weekend we had s***. I couldn't believe how much s*** that some areas of Wyoming and Colorado got 😮 I imagine @Renee Stevens was definitely not looking forward to any of the s*** that happen to her! Especially with the weather the days before, it was like out of the frying pan, and into the s***. Did anyone else get a unusual dump of s*** on them? Okay, now that I have had my fun lets see what happened with the GA News Blog this week Monday, Renee was kind enough to do up a review by our Super Review Team! This one done by @spikey582 Then later in the week, Renee did a revisit to promote the upcoming Fall Anthology Deadline. If you haven't cranked out an idea or two out of your head, git going I didn't do a prompt Friday this week, 1 for leaving the Anthology reminder up a little longer, and 2 I need some more prompt suggestions from you all!!! 😮 I have I think one weeks worth left. I'll tell you who didn't miss a day, Myr was very scrupulous this week in giving us 7 Words of the Day. Did I use that in the right context? And now for the one thing that you all are dying to see, and rely on me to find it Prompts Suggest a prompt(s) - Recommend a few prompts to be feature on Prompt Friday!

  2. Hello Fellow GAers, or can it be GAyers? It is funny how some cities' residents names are made. For example I live in Calgary, we are Calgarians. When I lived in Lethbridge for 10 years, I said we were Lethbians . Needless to say my fellow Lethbians didn't find it as humourous. Jeez, its a joke The province next to me, Saskatchewan, their peoples call themselves Saskatchewanites. And then the city of Moose Jaw in that province call themselves Moose Javians. Hi, my name is Steve. First and foremost I'm a Canadian, then a Saskatchewanite as well as a Moose Javian Care to share what your community name is, or any that you have heard that are funny or a tongue twister? Now if we look at the GA weekly blog this week, it is small. It is sooooooo small, I think I need to tell some jokes to fill some of the space What do you call a kid with no arms and no legs in the ocean? I know you were thinking Bob, but you are wrong if you did so Okay, I have a trunk full of those but will spare you the rest The reason not much to report is that I messed up I should have done Prompt Friday this week, and we do have a few great suggestions left for the member suggested ones, but could always use more. On Monday Cia was here with the CSR Discussion Day: Then, as always, the popular Ask An Author 2.0 was hear again brought to by Carlos And here would be the weekly prompts if I did them But Myr was on the ball all week, as usual, with the word of the day. You could say he dose them with alarcrity And GA Students, shall we check on your grades last week? I'm going to have to decide if we shall start marking on curve or not .

  3. Hiya What am I so happy about? I'm not really sure . Could it be because Sunday is/was international Bacon Day? I think that might be it Sadly by they time most of you read this the day will be past, but as I like to say, never to late to catch up I apologize to all the people who don't eat bacon I will just enjoy your share for you! Now that most of you are smelling, tasting, craving bacon, I shall leave this behind and move onto the Weekly Wrap Up! On Monday, Timothy M dropped by with a great review from the Site Review Team. Please, if you have a review that you would like to do, reach out to @Timothy M. Wednesday, Renee was back with the big reveal for the Author Guess Who. Just to prove how wrong I was again 😢 Then on Thursday, Renee visited the 2020 Fall Anthology which you have 2 1/2 months to get done, and submitted. Now before you fillip a spitball my way , shall we look at the Words of the Day provided by everyone's favourite GA Founder , Myr. The last thing I will bring your attention to is the results of last weeks story goals. Now if I had left 11 more chapter comments (Bad Steve, Bad) we would have had a perfect score!!! But that is close enough for everyone to be really, really, really proud of all your efforts! Prompts Suggest a prompt(s) - Recommend a few prompts to be feature on Prompt Friday!

  4. Oops I actually forgot that I'm back from holidays, well camping, and I told the gracious Renee I would do the wrap up. Well last night, a barley pop or two, I was watching TV and then crawled into bed. I totally forgot that last night was Saturday night I referred to Renee as gracious, as she was kind enough to do the wrap up for me the past couple of weeks. So let's all give a shout out to her for stepping in!! As mentioned, I was camping the past week and a bit. Had a great time in the Rockies with my 3 nephews ages 13, 11 and 8. They definitely kept me busy and on my toes all the time. I really don't understand how you parents do it all the time. Hats off to you too! Well what happened around here last week you ask? Monday, Cia dropped into bring us the August CSR Feature: Then on the first Wednesday of August, Carlos came in on his motorbike, fast and furious, to bring us an all new Ask An Author 2.0 in a new format too. Finishing up on Thursday, Renee gave us the links to go vote for next years Anthologies!! Just make sure to pop into the store for your free membership to the Writer's Circle to vote. This is for EVERYONE to join and vote. As long as you are a member, you can vote! You have until August 17th to participate!! Now I wasn't around for most of the week, but Astraphobia is something that I do have Check out a certain story to find out why Now that the dog days of summer are coming to a close and even with the pandemic still around the world, a lot of areas are preparing for back to skool. So let's see how our marks were for last week on the site Instead, let's see how you all achieved a A- for the past 3 weeks Good going everyone!!!

  5. So, is it hot where you live? I've heard from my Eastern American and Canadian friends that the temperatures and humidity has been nearly unbearable. Then heard on the news that Death Valley, California hit 53.3°C/128°F I guess I'm enjoying days around 25°C/77°F, but most evenings we have thunder storms rolling in. My city did have the 4th largest natural disaster in Canadian history in cost of damages due to hail a couple of weeks ago. I'm curious though, how is your summer going? Are you hiding out in your air conditioned home, naked as the day you were born? Or are you at a beach socially distanced and taking in the sun and the water. Hopefully not naked as the day your were born Now I don't want to forget our Southern Hemisphere friends. Let's hear from you if your are freezing your walnuts off . Well I could prattle on forever, but lets get to the wrap up this past week before you all turn from ruly to unruly in an instant. Monday, we kicked off the week right with a great review by the GA Review Team. This one from spikey582. Wednesday Renee was back to kick off the 2020 Theme Selections for the Anthologies. Friday was a first every Guest Prompts. We had a couple of great ones from two different members. See if one of them make you want to take one on! Now, did you check out all the Words of the Day? If not, check em out. Should we check in on where we were on our goals? It is so nice out, I'm curious how we did? Not bad, not bad.

  6. Well I never 😮 Usually I try to work a word of the day into the Weekly Wrap Up of late. Generally I try to look in everyday to check out the word of the day and see how I can use it in the wrap up. This week has been a hectic week and I have not been diligent in reading them everyday. So we find ourselves on a Saturday night and I check to see what word I can use, and I find this entry! I think this is the second time I have been used in an example of usage of the word, but wondering if there is more that I may have missed. I think it is a time for Myr and me to parlay and find a cessfire before I am forced to take things further in my own hands . So on to the rest of the week, Monday, Cia was by with the July CSR Feature. Then on Tuesday, some really big news for the site that Graeme and the Author Promotion Team were happy to share with everyone! On Thursday, we had Renee come in and lay out a collaborative road map that will see as being successful for Anthologies going forward. Now with no actually Anthology round posted this week, we would bring you back to your regularly scheduled programming of weekly prompts. As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be switching up the prompts for a little while until Wayne is back. What this means is that we are turning them over to you, the members of GA, to submit prompt ideas to @Renee Stevens or @wildone that we will be starting to feature next Friday. So get them in!!! Oh, let's go look back and check out the Words of the Day. I strongly suggest you ignore Wednesday As a many CEO's of companies like to say, 'If you don't measure it, it won't be done'. But trust me, our CEO has never said or implied that . Prompts Suggest a prompt(s) - Recommend a few prompts to be feature on Prompt Friday! PM @Renee Stevens and/or @wildone with your ideas.

  7. Well a Happy Independence Day to my neighbours to the south Hopefully you were able to celebrate your national birthday this year in a unique but safe kind of way And a belated Happy Canada Day and Happy Somalia Independence Day on July 1st So I was driving down the road the other day, and I had a weird thought, and wondering if any of you have pondered the same thing, or if not? When was the last time you saw a hood ornament? I think someone had a old Lincoln Continental in my parking garage, but it has been gone for years. Do they even make cars with them anymore? I think some semi trucks have them Enough of my musings What happened in the GA Blogs this week? Monday, Cia popped into our blog with CSR Discussion Day: Then on Wednesday, Carlos popped on by with this months edition of Ask An Author 2.0. Thursday, guess who popped in? Renee did with the Spring Anthology Wrap Up! On Friday even though it wasn't featured, I want to call out a blog that Myr who popped in and re-posted a tutorial from Cia. Also, hoping none of you were louts and checked out this week's Words of the Day. How about our pursuit to excellence in site goals? BTW, I have s few great prompts idea rolling in so thank you to all those that have submitted.

  8. I saw this Friday night and thought it is such a good song for right now with everything going on in the world! Well it made me smile and who better to cheer us all up than the Muppets! Hopefully it will keep that smile on your face for the rest of the week too I also want to put out an offer to everyone! Our GA resident prompt guru comicfan, or those that love him, Wayne, will be away for a little while as he has a lot going on right now. This means we want you all to try your hand at creating a prompt or two for the next while. If you feel up to the prompt challenge, you can send a PM to @Renee Stevens and/or @wildone and we will try to post a lot of them! After next week's Anthology Wrap Up, we will be returning to our regular scheduled programming of the prompts on Friday. So we need some soon! This is a way to get you name immortalized in the GA Weekly Blog . Now we should get to the wrap up! Monday, Renee featured another great review supplied by our Supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus Review Team! This review was done by @Timothy M. Fast forward to Thursday and Renee was back again with Week of 4 of the Spring Anthology And don't forget about all the words that Myr supplied us with too! He will help us add to our vernacular, even if you want to discuss vermicular. So how did we do last week?

  10. Another week, and another week of nice weather. I guess some of our US of A neighbours had a bit of extreme weather, so hoping you all are okay Tonight, I actually sat at my computer and watched 3 completely separate thunderstorms move through the city. Great lightening shows, and thunder that shook the stuff in my place. Won't catch me going outside in anything like that again Oops, let me retract that! Watching the 11:30 local news and our major freeway going through the middle of the city, 4 northbound lanes had only the roofs of cars visible under water. In the NE sector the ground was white with hail up to golf ball sized and holes trough people's vinyl siding and ripped their roofs off too. A lot with flooded basements as well. Guess I shouldn't think of my light show as great, when it seems to caused so much damage . Well I will have a pretty easy job this week as far as the Wrap Up goes Monday, Renee was around to bring us a great story review done by the exceptional Review Team and this time was done by @aditus Then on Thursday, Renee was back with Round Two of the Spring Anthology. Everyday of the Week, Myr was by with a new Word of the Day. Did you check them out? Lastly, lets check in our on story goals.

  11. Exciting things happened this week in the GA New Blogs Did you catch them daily, or do you rely on the Weekly Wrap Up to get caught up So last weekend, I played 18 holes of golf on Sunday. We all practiced safe distancing and such. I say played, but I lie . We went to play in the Rockies and some of the tee boxes were quite the climb, and then back down to the carts. Since I don't wear my prosthetic leg much since I've been working at home, I don't get out on it too much during the week. Needless to say by the 12th hole, my friends who were not judgmental or pitying me, noticed I was having trouble climbing up and getting down off the tee boxes, they suggested I play best ball format. So I gave it a try! Having 3 good golfers with a duffer like me, made it so all my so called drives off the tee box were exceptional from then on . Didn't keep score at all. Interesting how much more fun golf can be if you take out the competition of scoring. Now I'm interested, what fun outdoor (or indoor) things have you done on the weekend and were you able to practice safe physical distancing? I saw from status updates, @Daddydavek was having a blast this week cutting his ever growing lawns. Well enough about me and onto the update! Monday, Cia launched the Can't Stop Reading Feature for June. Wednesday was the 1st one of the month, so Mr. Hazday was back with another edition of Ask An Author. Remember please, send him questions to keep this feature going!!! Thursday, Renee took over the blog to announce the first round of stories on the Spring Anthology. Make sure to check them out!!! I want to give a shout out and also give kudos to Myr, for getting us 7 new words we can try to work into our vocabulary or writing! Are you a student still in skool?

  12. Well excusssssse me Seriously, I need to apologize ahead of time. I've been on a wee bit of a vacation this past week and I wanted to take tonight off, so I can do some social distancing visiting with some friends. We will be 6 feet apart in his back yard with a fire pit between us. All of us are on the bit shy of meeting up, but as a group, we decided lets give this a try but practicing everything we can, which is a heck of a lot more that what I see others doing in the grocery stores So there apparently is a lack of people to do the wrap up this weekend 😮! Renee is relaxing by the lake on a post skool vacation, Cia is occupied, Graeme is a busy enchilada (I'm going to leave that as that is what my spell check put up :P). I should have asked either Reader, Dr.P, Talonrider or Gene to help out, but I left this to too late. I figured since the lights are out and the doors locked with only Myr minding the store, I wouldn't bother him The apology is that I'm running the story query about 6 hours ahead of time. So if you are a Premium, Classic, Signature or Promising Author and I miss you on the wrap up below, make sure you leave a post of what I forgot Really, we didn't have a lot go on this week with the GA Blog. Cia was in on Monday with the May CSR Discussion Day: Not fast forward to Friday, and we finish off the week by Wayne sharing some prompts. So how did y'all do on the goals this week? Well let me show you Oh, I nearly forgot , here is the words of the day that Myr keeps coming our way: Now before I continue writing more and more in a skimble-skamble way, shall we wrap this up?

  13. Happy Memorial Day to all our American friends!! As Elen said, it is time to pull out your bikinis and use them as face masks Now, I am not suggesting that you put the tops on your top and your bottoms on your face You might get arrested and for me personally, I don't need to see that . What about your neck of the woods, is it bikini weather yet? I'd ask everyone to post pictures of themselves in their bikinis but I'm scared what I would get sent in Shall we move on from bikinis and onto more pressing matters Well maybe not pressing, but a look back at what happened at the GA Blog this week! Monday, Cia dropped in with the May Classic Author Feature. So that meant on Wednesday Cia followed up with the May Classic Author Excerpt. Finishing of the short week in Canadia (we had Victoria Day on Monday ), was Wayne in with the Weekly Prompts.

  14. So lets have some fun Over in the Games and Humour section, there is a topic called Last Post Wins! Recently two or three participants tried to find earworm songs to drive the others crazy You know what I mean! The type of songs that you hear and then can't get out of your mind! No matter how hard you try! Well how about everyone share an earworm song to keep us going through Sunday to leave us all stark crazy. Post a Youtube link in your response Have some fun Some of the ones with Youtube links in the topic were : Baby Shark - Pinkfong Songs for Children Mahna Mahna - The Muppets I Love You, Barney Theme Song - Barney Daniel Tigers Neighbourhood - PBS Kids Never Going To Give You Up - Rick Astley Ob-la-di Ob-la-da - the Beatles Now back to our regularly scheduled program On Monday, Cia brought us the May Can't Stop Reading Feature.

Now send him some questions to keep this going Then on Friday, comicfan, aka Wayne dropped in with a couple of though provoking prompts for everyone to consider tackling.

  16. Soooo, The other night I woke up with my pillow on the side of my face and I had hair in my mouth and in my nose I've never had a beard for more than a week before in my life, but I let it grow out over the past 5 weeks. The unibomber had nothing on me And the eyebrow,s even Albert Einstein would be jealous So enough was enough and woke up today and got out the cordless waterproof clippers and got rid of the damn beard! Next, got out the actual hairdresser clippers and started to use a #2 to start on a fade. Went well until I got the hairdressing scissors out next I was trying to blend the sides into the clipper cut and took off just a bit too much No problem, I just did the same the other side to even it out . So when I took after pictures I was impressed with my 100% self haircut. There won't be any pictures of the back, no matter how much anyone begs, pleads or asks. Not going to happen When I look over my head I have decided to give myself a resounding grade of F-. Now to distract you from my salon skills, here is what happened at the GA Blog this week. Monday, Renee brought us a new Feature Author. Wednesday, our Featured Author dropped in and provide us with a Site Technology and Software Update. Anyone have a saga or two in them? Friday was the day that comicfan returned with a couple of new prompts for y'all, or is it ya'll I checked in today with how we did last week on the story goals last week, which I have been remiss in doing the past few weeks. So here is last week: But due to my remissness, I missed sharing you with a couple of great accomplishments!!

  17. Has the past month flown by for you too? It seems like only a little while ago that we were being told to baton down the hatches and start practicing physical distancing. Work days blend into supposedly days off and daily chores and tasks are being done more. As even one member commented, her Dad was washing walls, walls!!!! I see the blogs are starting to really take off. Interesting reading how so many people are dealing with the times as well as their thoughts on it too. Some of your status updates have me laughing my butt off . Seems like GA is becoming more and more a place to come to get swept away for a little while So what did the staff get up to this week with the GA Blog? Cia was on Monday, with a new CSR feature for the month of April. Tuesday was another feature of Author Guess Who Who are you, who, who, who, who? Wednesday, Renee was back with a Signature Feature: Friday Wayne was back with a couple of prompts, and if you look at the comments you will see why self preservation kicked in for me Anthologies Author Anthology Questionnaire - Click here to participate Anthology 101 - New in the Anthology Forum.

  18. Well, I'm kind of tired of asking the usual question at the past 3 or 4 updates As I was looking through the blogs and activity this week, I noticed a couple of things that I thought I'd mention. First off, for anyone reading @Dabeagle's story Corners you will see really high numbers of reviews and likes and overall interaction. I think that with so many of us home bound, Dabeagle has found for the lack of a better expression, a captive audience and growing audience. I also noticed it with other authors as well, @Mark Arbour posted a chapter of Northern Exposure also the likes and comments are flowing in too. With Mark having his own Club, he has also had a lot of people joining his club! Sorry, there is so many more, but these were just two of the many, many that I've seen this past week. To all of you contributing new works, on behalf of all of GA, THANK YOU!!! Second thing I saw was the Prompts that @comicfan graces us with every Friday, might be under utilized. I'm thinking I might do something totally different and actually express myself though a prompt response Keep the booing and the throwing of rotten fruit and vegetables at me to a minimum. I'm kind of fragile . Now shall we actually see what great blogs we had this week? Monday, Cia brought us all the CSR Discussion day for March. Wow, where did that month go? Wednesday was a favourite around these parts . Carlos was back with another rendition of AAA. Friday the prompt guru, Comicfan was back with a couple of intriguing selections for you to partake in.

  19. So what is new in your neck of the woods? Well I know that the news is something we are watching closely or avoiding due to the nature of it. When I log into GA, I think of all our members in all the different hot zones and hope that all of you are safe, if you in there or anywhere else . I was noticing over the past week that a few pop up topics have arisen in the Lounge to lighten the mood. Maybe pop into the hilarious topic, Make Us Laugh #2. Or you could go old school and check out where it all started with @jamessavik kicking it off with Make us Laugh, but be warned some of the pics have disappeared or hard to see behind watermarks. Or do you want to get something of your chest? You joys, fears, happiness, frustrations or whatever is on your mind. Why not post a personal blog. I know for sure that you will find people that can relate to you, and it is also cathrtic to just get stuff off of our chests . In case you don't know how to post a blog, check out this help topic that was created by Renee. Lastly, for those of you that work in healthcare, work in grocery stores or any of the other essential services that we are so dependent on during these times, we appreciate what you do and the risks you are taking to ensure we are as safe and can stay safe as possible . Now what did the staff get up to this week on the Staff Blog? On Monday, Renee featured a great Review Team Featured Story by @Parker Owens on a short but great story! Then on Wednesday, Renee was back with another timely reminder of the upcoming Anthology deadline coming up. I was impressed some have their entry(ies) in all ready Then on Friday, reliable Wayne, aka comicfan was back with a couple of new prompts for you. I thought we would look at the reading Stats! There is a lot of you reading and commenting which is great!!

  20. Huh! I was snuggled into bed with the music of Rent going on in my head (guess what I partially watched tonight ) when I said to myself, 'Self, did you do the weekly update tonight?' Needless to say I had not. So here I am well past my bedtime and thinking if there is anything for a preamble. Since I'm in shut down mode already, I guess not. I don't even have a knock knock joke for you all So why don't we jump into the wrap up right away! Monday, Cia was out with a new Classic Author Feature for the month. Tuesday was the big reveal on the new family favourite guessing game, Author Guess Who! Wednesday, Cia was back with the Classic Author Feature Excerpt.

  21. Ho Hum So is there such a thing as the February Blahs? I mean, the shortest month of the year is going to be one day longer this year and it just means another day of meh. Sorry if your birthday is in February, I'm not calling you boring or anything of the such . Maybe it is because the anxiousness of waiting for spring to be sprung for the Northern Hemisphere. Like some things are better, I'm not going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, so the Earth is tilting itself in an attempt to appease me . Maybe I'm blah because I heard that March is the snowiest month in my neck of the woods So, are you suffering for the February blues? What are you doing to combat them? How about those in the Southern Hemisphere peeps, are you having blues knowing your autumn is coming and your summer is coming to an end? Well something that should put you in a good mood is the GA Weekly Blogs. So shall we see what mood lifting things happened this week? On Monday, Cia brought us another Classic Author Feature. This month it was @Andrew Q Gordon. (I've met him ) Then on Tuesday, Renee put the entire community out of their suspense and revealed the last Author Guess Who, @Brayon. (I've not met him ) Wednesday, Cia was back with the Classic Feature Excerpt (did I mention I met him ) Finally on Friday, a guy I've never met, comicfan had our weekly prompts: And did you check out the words of the day this week?

  22. So, what is new in your neck of the woods? I'm sure that you all have some stories, some frustrations, some concerns, some fears and and lots of other things on your mind. With the pandemic in full swing in basically the whole world now, it has to be affecting everyone in at least a small way. My heart goes out to those that can't work, or are laid off, and don't have some kind of social safety net to lessen the blow somewhat. Lets hope that this blog finds you all safe and sound and taking care of yourself and those that you love and care for are doing the same. Usually I try to add some jocularity (maybe a word of the day for @Myr) but not really feeling it today. Last night I called my dad up, as my sister was on her way over to the seniors lodge my dad resides in. He was not opening the door for homecare when they arrived and when they got the door opened, he was only wearing a towel and shaking uncontrollably. She got him dressed but he wasn't making too much sense. When I called she was still there, but had to take off but was concerned with my dad. She put me on the phone and I asked dad why he didn't open the door. He replied that he was stuck in the bathtub (he doesn't have a bathtub) and the Edmonton Oiler got slashed by the damn American and all hell has broken out on the ice. I'm sure everyone knows there is no hockey going on, but in addition my dad absolutely hates the Oilers . I knew right away that he is being affected by a infection and suffering from delirium. I told him that I'd call him back and immediately call 9-1-1. I told them what was going on and they immediately dispatched the fire department and an ambulance. He wouldn't answer the phone again and my sister arrived shortly after the paramedics and firemen did. So they were concerned with the his mental state, when they asked him when he was born, he felt 1759 was correct 😮 They thought he was suffering from a urinary track infection, which he has had in the past, but didn't really want to take him to the hospital with the Covid concerns. Well, they did detect something just not right with his breathing too. So where is this story going? After arriving at the hospital they tested everything on him and he did have the UTI, which is being treated. But they still don't know about the lungs. He has now be tested for Covid-19 and is in complete isolation in the hospital for at least the next 2-3 days awaiting the results. Sadly, no one is allowed to visit. My sister that went over has sons aged 8,11, and 13, and older sister has a bit of a cold and I am considered immunity compromised since I've had diabetes since I was 4 . So we are all hoping it is the UTI, and that he doesn't have Covid-19, as he is not in the best condition to fight infections, bacterial or viral. Long story short, take care of your loved ones and let them know that you love them, as with this pandemic, you don't know what will happen tomorrow. And whatever you do, please take this as serious as you possibly can. Follow the best directions out there, once again maybe defer to the World Health Organization, and be safe I have to admit, I've escaped from real life by coming here and enjoying pictures of @Valkyrie's hash brownies, @Renee Stevens' strange dreams, and @clochette's return to infancy All have been great comic relief and making me feel better about things. I've also been reading @Tiff's story that was featured on Monday and Wednesday on the blog So for everyone contributing, on behalf of myself and all the staff, thank you . Now as mentioned, Cia had a new Classic Feature on Monday: Wednesday, Cia was back with the Classic Feature Excerpt: On Thursday, @Graeme and the Author Promotion Team announced our latest addition to the Promising Authors: Friday, Wayne dropped in to give us a couple more prompts!

  24. Well the Great White North is living up to it's name this week. Snow hurricanes in St John's, and in Atlantic Canada. Huge amounts of snow have fallen in central parts and the the Prairies have been gripped all week in -40 weather. Even the nice green lower mainland of BC is covered in snow and the travel is not recommended. Still, Australia is burning in some areas and other areas next door are flooding. Okay, the localized weather forecast is completed and I really should get to wrapping this week up Maybe I should talk about letting me be the GA Weather Person. He'll have to invest in a green screen for me to stand in front of.

  25. Well I'm in a good mood I just finished watching a hockey game that came out the right way I don't know about you, but do you come to GA for a mood change? What am I talking about? Well this week has had me thinking about a lot of things, Australia burning, Eastern North America in tornadoes, rain and freezing rain. The Royal family in turmoil (okay, so I like the Royal Family, shoot me ). A passenger plane accidentally being shot down in Iran and 100's of lives lost. With that all going on, I think about it but I also make a point of coming to GA to check in on some positive engagement week after week. Stories, Blogs, Status Updates, Clubs, and so much more. So do you come to GA to escape some of the real life that we all deal with day to day? Speaking of blogs, on Monday, Cia had the first CSR Feature of the year. Wednesday, Renee got our Sherlock Holmes caps and pipes brought out for the Author Guess Who. Who do you think it is? Friday Wayne was back with a couple of new prompts to get you writing. Saturday, Myr featured a blog about where GA is heading in 2020: And don't forget to check out the Words of the Day from the week. How would you feel if someone called you a farceur ?
