Shinigami  (13+)
She was given specific instructions if she hoped to regain her freedom.

Batty Bobby Baker - have you seen this?

The world seems to be on edge -

Barely hanging by a very stretched and taut thread that's bound to snap at any second.

To my brothers and sisters in the States, where I will confess that anything beyond its borders was of no concern to me when I lived there (shameful to confess and God knows you have your own problems to deal with now).

However, if you take a second to step outside your comfort zone, you'll get to see the chaos existing everywhere else.

The people - in so many countries - are getting fed up with their governments and protests are springing up more and more and more and more and more -

Even where I live now, Nigeria, a mass protest against terrible (and I mean terrible) police brutality has just turned into a legit massacre. Soldiers are literally on the streets gunning down innocent protesters, and it's not far from where I live.

To add to that, we are on a mandatory 24-hr lockdown in this city. No one is allowed to leave their homes within that time frame.

So, that freedom you so enjoy right now...cherish it and keep fighting for it the best way you know how.

Never. (ever, ever, ever) Stop.Fighting.For.Justice.

Sending you lots of love.
I think we all live in our own little shells so don't feel lonesome. I listen to the news before I get up in the morning and heard of the terrible goings-on in Nigeria...and Lagos...starting with the innocent shooting of someone, they said, by a police unit that has since been disbanded. Blamed, too, on your 27% unemployment rate consisting of so many college-educated young people. Do stay inside and stay safe although I imagine it is very hard not to protest with others. Sending you love and hugs. Connie
I shudder to imagine how you must feel. I started having my daughter and nephew watch world news with me a few years ago. It opened their eyes and hearts, which everyone could use. May God keep you and yours safe. *Hug1**hug**Hug2*

Have you dialogued today?
Seems like the world needs a bit more of that these days, don't you think?
So, why not pop into this writing challenge institution below, to see how good of a 'talkative' you are?

Recall my last post mentioning mentors and my 'mamas' and 'papas' who helped me while I was in my baby black case days?

Well, I have the humble pleasure of dusting their portfolios/cases and keeping them as 'alive' as possible below:

White Case Memorial  (E)
Honoring the WDC members who have passed away

Please don't hesitate to stop by every once in a while to say hello or to reminisce on their wonderful legacies.

I often stop by and read these friends that inspire but I don't review, maybe I should? Thanks for keeping these wonderful pieces alive for us to learn and gain inspiration from. Eternal magic from true angels.

@ Redtowrite Some members still review their items. No rule that says you can't. *Bigsmile* Also, I think some family members of the deceased check in and see the emails/comments, and I'm sure it will bring a smile to their faces.

Redtowrite, If you send a public review, it can draw others to their item and their port. Their email can't be accessed once they have a white case but we can use reviews to promote their writing within the WdC community.

I have reviewed some white cases for that very reason...

Of course, making suggestions for changes would not be a good review strategy in this case. *Wink* Responding to their work as a reader would be.

Hallo, all ye fine writers!

Hope you're having a great Sunday so far (and if not, hope it gets better).

Here's a quick question (or two).

Do you remember how confuzzled and befuddled you were when you first signed up to Writing.com? Did you wish you could have found a person or persons willing to assist you with whatever problem you had? Or simply needed a guiding hand?
(This gal had several, but this is not the time to list out my dear WDC 'mamas' and 'papas' from nearly fifteen years ago *lol*)

Well, in case you didn't know already the forum below was created for just such purposes:

The problem with Author's Hut is that it is a "Group" type item. The description inviting others to ask for a review is misleading since nobody can post anything to a group.
No, somik1 it was the other link she posted before, The Author's hut review forum, that one was restricted.
@ somik1 - I posted the wrong link at first, which was why WakeUp calls from yonder notified me about it. I have since changed it to the group link. As for what SkeletonBoneGhoulie is talking about, my promo can be a bit confusing as I did put in a group link and not a forum link. So anyone clicking that goes straight to the group page.

A simple solution to all this? Make the forum page accessible to everyone. If your objective of the group is to accept reviews from people, then I think the forum page should be public. Unless I completely misunderstood what your activity was all about. Feel free to correct me. *Smile*

Hmmmm...the muse decided to show up for whatever reason.
