Are you one of those people cautiously avoiding counting your chickens before they’re hatched? What if you’re not around to see it happen?
Trying to mould someone to suit your own intentions will eventually wear you right out.
This is probably the best advice you will receive all day, so please pay close attention.
Sometimes an ounce of common sense is worth a ton of expert advice.
It’s been educational and fun taking some Trifecta Challenges, and now I will attempt to contribute to the community of Trifectans by joining their (at this moment) 248 members, whether they want me or not. Because really, who would not want to add another two hundred blogs to their daily reading list??? To be a true Trifecta member I think you have to be a little bit nuts, so probably I will fit right in. All it takes is answering some questions and adding the link here.
- What is your name (real or otherwise)? I submit my links to these challenges in the name of grandmalin. And in the name of love.
- Describe your writing style in three words. Here, there, everywhere.
- How long have you been writing online? Since 2006, so seven years. Seven YEARS. I should be very good at it by now, hey? Yes, I should be.
- Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in? Used to do Plinky until they started recycling their questions, try to do some WordPress Daily Prompts, Prompts for the Promptless by Rarasaur (two so far, and the next prompts will no doubt be equally awesome), and a monthly Post for Peace with Bloggers for Peace (and this one I’m very happily committed to, because it’s connected me with so many incredibly beautiful souls.)
- Describe one way in which you could improve your writing. I could leave my house and have some new experiences to write about. I might even try that one of these days.
- What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given? Read, read, read. Read everything. Read the best of it again.
- Who is your favorite author? Absolutely impossible to choose, or even to make a list. Maybe my favorite has yet to be discovered.
- How do you make time to write? By never getting anything else done.
- Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt. Remember–it must have a third definition. Canny. 1. shrewd, astute or wary, knowing. 2. (Scot, Northeast English) good or nice, used as a general term of approval. 3. (Scot) lucky or fortunate 4. quite, rather: a canny long while.
- Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn’t miss reading. This Star Crossed Lovers reblog was fun. However, if you do miss reading it, your life probably won’t suddenly be over. For something more serious (I do have a sort of half-assed serious side) click on the Posts for Peace category. And have a perfectly trifectally canny day.
