I was looking through my google drive files to find an assignment I have misplaced - and I stumbled on some old assignments I did almost ten years ago for an online fiction writing course (not on this site - an actual, accredited writing course). This was well before I found writing.com, and it was before I had made any inroads at all on battling my writer's brick (my term for an inability to sit down and write). Unfortunately, I only did 3 or 4 assignments before the weight of performance anxiety got to me. That's right, when it actually came time for me to write a real short story, I folded and ran away with my stripey tail between my legs.

You may find it a tad confusing at first, the teachers edits and formats didn't come across in the cut and paste.

I really wish I had finished this course.
Final prompts are up I'm the 30 Day Blogging Challenge forum. Started with a hiccup, and ended with one too.
I've edited my latest blog entry to make it obvious that it is, in fact, a blog entry and not a promotion of an activity.

Certain mods can be "overzealous" at times, I feel. It makes me sigh.

I just discovered Tabletop Simulator on Steam. My life is now complete.

"Tabletop Simulator is the only simulator where you can let your aggression out by flipping the table! There are no rules to follow: just you, a physics sandbox, and your friends. Make your own games and play how YOU want! Unlimited gaming possibilities!"

There are free mods for over 20000 board games in the steam workshop available for download as well as paid DLC from board game developers.

It has been a big week in sports.

"Prompts for Week 2 of Unofficial July"  

I hope you guys are enjoying the unofficial challenge and that it hasn't been too unofficially challenging.

This week's prompts are influenced, if not sponsored by, WDC's own "The Steampunk Authors' Guild , the home of victorian and americana era science-fiction, fantasy and retro-futurism!

IF you would like to talk about the "The Steampunk Authors' Guild sponsoring or collaborating with YOUR challenges or events just send myself or Beck loves NaNo! a message and we can talk steam-turbine turkey!

As you will see from checking out the prompts in the 30DBC forum, a Steampunk merit badge is on offer for next saturday's prompt.

Here are the prompts for week 1 of the unofficial 30 Day Blogging Challenge.


Apologies for delays, I thought this had gone through but it appears it hadn't. Off the proverbial bush track, and back on the main track now.

TALK TUESDAYS!: Prompts will encourage a more opinionated, personal respone. Get to know your fellow competitors...make sure you're commenting!

"Tell us about that time you were excited about something, only to be bitterly disappointed when it was delayed or cancelled."

WAR CHEST WEDNESDAYS!: A prompt from the pool of challenger-submitted prompts known as The Challenge War Chest.

"Write about the place where you go when you want to get away from life, pressure, work, family etc?"

Thursday is THE WILDCARD ROUND!: Anything can happen! Be prepared...and you might win a random prize! It could be Gift Points, raffle tickets, or even a Merit Badge!

"Tell us about your experiences at Writing.com. The laughs and the loves, the lights and the lows."

FUN FACT FRIDAY!: I'll provide you with a random fact, and you give us your take on it. Feel free to share a random fact of your own as well!

"More than 90% of the Australian population live in urban areas on the coastal fringes – the Outback is therefore mostly uninhabited..."

CREATION SATURDAY!: A creative writing prompt from the War Chest will be used. Challengers are encouraged to write a poem or story, but any creative interpretation is allowed (I once listed a recipe for fake poo)

"The creative prompt for Saturday is: a good habit makes things bad, and a bad habit makes things good."

THE SUNDAY NEWS!: I'll take a headline from the past week, and you can share your thoughts and opinions on it. Encourage a discussion between your fellow bloggers

“Citizen Scientists” Map Birdlife on Mallee Wetlands"


I've almost finished my own outback travails, so the next week's prompts would/could/should arrive on time.

See you then!
