The best advice I’ve ever seen from one author to another!

She threatened to beat me with a skillet if I didn’t let her do this!

Haha! Told you all I’d get the woman more involved! She even came to me wanting to do this, and I encourage her. She needs to get out of her shell and quit being antisocial.

Riley is a lying Shithead…he’s forcing me to do this….well, bribing me, actually. -.-
hand pic : Normally I don’t partake in fads, but today’s bracelet grouping influenced me to try the ‘accent nail trend’ especially since the selected nail polishes coordinate with the bracelets.
Both colors are Pure Ice, the metallic pastel purple is New Lilac. Green with golden shimmer dust is Lucky Charming. Wearing two coats of the purple, three of the green. Green is very sheer as a single layer so i added two more to achieve a saturated sparkly nail.

Another interesting challenge.

Finally made it back around while going through my blogs, and found this. Thought I’d see if we could get it to carry on.

Hey everyone,

I was sitting here looking out my window, at another beautiful Darwin day, as a group of people walked past. They were all chatting and laughing. This made me think about what they were saying, and then about them, when an inspirational idea hit.

What if I start a story (just a paragraph), then pass it to someone else to add the next bit?

Here what you have to do:

I have written the first part below, all you have to do is copy and paste the story and add your part.
Tag the next person, and everyone who had done it before you (so we can see how the story develops).
Post it.
It’s that easy. So the person I am nominating to write the next part is sonshinegreene.

The world had changed in the few years of his life. Where lush green grass, and tall trees had once grown, now only dried, cracked and red dirt remained. Taking a handful of the dead earth he smelt it, and thought of how this happened.
He smelled the rich headiness of the earth, breathing the smell deep into his lungs. He looked to the kid walking along next to him. Long and spindly with raggedy brown hair, she couldn’t have been more than twelve. She looked up at him, with sad looking brown eyes. “Where are we headed?” She asked as her belly rumbled in hunger.

Now to decide who to tag…I think we’ll go with Jackie G Mills, be interesting to see where she would take this.

 

*Edit* Realized I forgot to give credit to http://www.dominickpeters.com/ for starting this!

Dear Bloggers, my Friends~

I have been visiting many Gravatar Profiles as of late in an effort to do more reading of the blogs of others. I have noticed that I am *not* able to find the WordPress link for many of you. I end up calling in the CIA and the FBI to locate you! I do not mind the extra effort that I put in to reach you, however, I learned from my own experience, and after having it pointed out to me by a fellow blogger, Steven,  that we have to MANUALLY LINK our WordPress address to the Gravatar image.  You do this by following the steps below:   (A note of encouragement to the technologically challenged, like myself, TAKE HEART, it is not difficult, because even I could do it! LOL)

PLEASE be sure to Manually LINK your WORDPRESS…
