And HEY! , don't forget the gorgeous *Hearty* "Golden Heart Alliance Fundraiser "   by Tina Stone !!!

It's still going, and today I'm recommending Sterling Silver*Heartgr* and Double Hearts *HeartV**Heartv*



Have you all checked out "The Four Seasons Auction? There are 20 packages to bid on. *Giftt* *Gifto* *Giftg*

Wondering who to review today? Fret not, I have suggestions!

How about giving Beholden a review for his 2nd WDC-anniversary?

Or give LegendaryMask💗 a review for her 4th WDC-anniversary!

Or... I happen to know that Tina Stone is in a particularly generous mood with her reviewers, from now until June 1st*Stary*

And last but not least, there's always 'Read a Newbie' under the 'Community' tab in the left-hand menu.

Lots to choose from... in case you were wondering *Wink*
... and the 'Please Review' in the same menu!
The possibilities are endless!
Maybe it can be combined with "Earn Your Badge!"   by Shaye ?
Today's HOT TIP*Fire* is Heart Two *Heartb* *HeartY*. Only six more tickets before another drawing!

Help more members get upgrades by buying tickets (prices from 500gps to 2200gps), and maybe win a prize for yourself! Winning good karma is guaranteed *Angelic*

The FIRST 5 PEOPLE who buy tickets for up to 5000gps will get their purchase DOUBLED by me!!

Examples:

*If you buy a 500gps ticket, I'll buy you another one.

*If you buy tickets for 3000gps, I'll buy you extra tickets for 3000gps.

*If you buy for 5000gps or more, I'll buy you extra tickets for 5000gps.


Just add a comment to this post to let me know you've bought tickets, and mention if you want tickets of the same type you bought yourself or something else.

Let's get this fundraiser going again!

GOOD LUCK! *HeartY* *HeartY* *HeartY*



WOW, this is very generious! Thank you *HeartV*
*Idea*MiniLesson: Blank Verse

Do you know that one of Shakespeare's most nifty poetic devices is called blank verse? It means to write in unrhyming iambic pentameter. That is, lines with ten syllables each, where every other syllable is unstressed/stressed, and without rhyming at the end of each line.

Shakespeare was not the first, and certainly not the last to use this. Have you tried it yet?
Yes, it's a favorite of mine because I find iambics easier to write than rhymes. Done correctly, the poem is so smooth one does not even notice there are no rhymes.
In the "Oriental Poetry Contest we're trying out the Persian form Rubaiyat this month.
