I've added a new entry to my book, "Journal/Blog:
         "01-20-22 The Order of Chaos
I also added a blog entry:

"01-13-23 Is Unlucky in the Eye of the Beholder?
It seems today my comments are in no way linked with the post... But, reading this *Up* I wondered about the phrase "in the eye of the beholder".

Where, or how, did this originate? Did someone actually hold some bees and did they get stung in the eye?
Perhaps it was the last thing shrieked by one of the low-level adventurers of a misguided party who stumbled into the lair of a hideous floating beast with numerous eyestalks and a bad attitude?

beholder monster

"Carl, don't point that arrow at me!"

"Oh, sorry! Where should I shoot it?"

"In the eye of the beholder!"
I have an ongoing book:

Tempered Hearts  (13+)
Ongoing story/book about Melinda Fairfax.

that I have added a new chapter to:

"Chapter 2 - Breakfast and Baking
amp1972 - I feel the idea behind WdC is not "competing authors" but a community of authors. Of course, that's how I see it and I stand to be corrected.
Well, the stuff I put on here only gets noticed by chance unless I put an announcement out there that there's an update. Not sure when the cutoff is for being considered a 'newbie' and getting items highlighted in the 'Read a Newbie' section.

As far as competing authors are concerned, I'm pretty sure this won't shock anyone, but any items that I think might be sales worthy sure as certain won't be posted on a public website where - granted there are a LOT of really great people - any one could steal the idea and run with it.

Still, there are more than enough stories floating through this chaotic brain to share here and get valuable feedback that improves overall writing technique. And if someone steals them, well, Karma is known to be a bitter witch *cough* Ahem. *Wink* So, I'll let her deal with them and keep enjoying myself. *BigSmile*

Many thanks to Anonymous!

If we can leave milk and cookies for Santa, I figure we can leave items for our secretive thank-you crew, too! *Wink*

Thank you Anonymous(e)! *Mouse* *Cheese*

*BigSmile* All of these kind gifts being sent by Anonymouses puts me in mind of the 'Twas the Night Before Christmas cartoon with the little mice. My brother's favorite seasonal cartoon and one my family still watches every year.
(And well... saying 'GPs' sort of actually sounds like 'cheese'!)

I'm waxing corny tonight, folks *Wink* Need a little bit of that now and then.

After getting to do some really neat word searches and crossword puzzles from others, I decided to try and create a few! November tends to be all about Thanksgiving for a lot of us in the U.S., but there are other interesting things about the month, too.

How about what authors were born in November? *CakeB* (word search)
Authors Birthdays - November  (E)
Some authors whose birthdays are in November

I always had a hard time remembering dates for history, so I would group them by month. Here are some interesting events in history for the month of November. (focusing on good events here *Smile* no need for reminders of the bad) (crossword puzzle)
November Historical Happenings  (E)
Events that occurred in November throughout history.

I did my first review yesterday and put my references for the group in the end. I was so excited to get to do that... and then realized I forgot to do the affiliation, ERGH!
Nothing like doing something wrong to make you remember how to do it right in the future *Laugh*
