Happy Birthday, Graywriter!

Blessings Always!
-43C when I got up this morning. Radio & TV warning everybody to cut down on unnecessary lights, etc. with threat of rolling blackouts. Kicked the dog out so she could do her business in the back yard, twenty seconds and she was done and begging to be let in. If you're out working in that cold, stay warm and keep all your digits!
It's times like these that having fire breath comes in handy.
I'll get the flamethrower started.
Sounds like good writing weather!
I tried The Most Dangerous Writing App at squibler. The idea is to write continuously for a specified time (default is five minutes, max is 60 minutes) and learn to write with momentum.

You can use one of the generated prompts or just start writing.

If you pause for more than a few seconds, your text will turn red, then blurry, and then it will disappear. The key is to keep going. You donโ€™t have to write quickly, but you must press forward, or your story will be lost. If you like what you've done, you can export your work.


I'm something of a pantser so I tend to stop occasionally to reconsider where the story is going. My story turned red a half dozen times in only five minutes. Still, fun to try.

Never heard of this one. Gives me an idea of a story prompt. You go for an hour or you receive a near fatal shockโ€ฆwith AI that confirms itโ€™s not just gibberish. A thousand dollars is you make it . . . Not enough how about ten thousand.
My story "Wishes in the Wind" was published in the anthology The Path by Polar Expressions Publishing.
Guess your wish came true... *BigSmile*
If it's already published and on Amazon, you can post a link to the book with {amazon:BookISBN}.

My poem "Love's Redemption" was published in Flicker, A Collection of Canadian Poems by Polar Expressions Publishing. My second published poem.

Out of three winners and ten honorable mentions, only ONE used rhyme; the rest were blank verse. I'm not fond of blank verse*. But I guess I'll have to try that for next year's contest (and then, just watch, twelve of the top 13 will be rhymed).

*A couple of years back, I found something I wrote to express my opinion about what was in the university's student poetry journal:

Aborted images
lie bleeding on the page
while English major butchers
conceal their lack of meaning
in an equal lack of form.

For some reason, the journal didn't publish my comment.
Came on this gem in Max Gladstone's Two Serpents Rising:

Sea wind bore the scent of fish and salt off the shark-infested bay. A few blocks in from shore, the stench of crowds, pavement, and livestock mugged the wind in a dark alley and took its place.
