In January, I took part in a WordPress challenge called Bloganuary. Every day for 31 days, I received a writing prompt to inspire me to write a post for that day, which I did. During those 31 days, I sang a song for you, wrote a poem, shared childhood memories, offered advice and aspirations, and much more. Below are what I consider to be the best of Bloganuary in no particular order. Thank you to those who read my posts and engaged with them. I appreciate it. I hope you enjoy this greatest hits retrospective of this fun writing challenge.Continue reading
The barren streets are filled with snow.
The aroma of pines, wines and homemade treats hang in the air.
Through frosted panes of glass, lights are gleaming and hearts are beaming.
One and all come together to spread love and good cheer.
Gifts are given, tales are told, while memories are created between young and old.
Below are my first Shatisms using William Shatner’s brilliant new app: Shatoetry. The app allows you to put words in Shatner’s mouth and have him recite them back to you. Dramatic pauses can be added between words, as well as three different variations on each word – with each one sounding more emotionally charged than the last. The current list of words is long enough to create some hysterical phrases and future app updates will include words packs for holidays and special occasions. The app also has a co-op mode, on and offline, where you and another “Shatoetist” can create a Shatism together. In addition to being able to download your creations, Shatoetry lets you share your Shatisms in a variety of ways, including: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and email. While it’s initially only available for iOS devices, an Android version is in the works.
The sun descends in the cool autumn sky, blasting rays of orange, pink and red across the cityscape.
The leaves are turning nearly as fast as the pages in the hands of erudite youth.
Bitter winds sweep the terrain, confections are in abundance and disguises are adorned as the masquerade casts its spell.
