My Weekly Update – Happy Memorial Day

I saw this on Google’s banner and loved it. I have seen this scene played out at airports a few times and I cry like a baby every time.  My prayers go out to those families who didn’t get to experience this happy ending.

3Ups Blog Hop

3up blog chain

Created by Randi Lee, this is a pay it forward blog hop.  I had the pleasure of sharing three items about Michelle from Writer-In-Transit.co.za.  We appear to have a lot in common.  I did my research and seems like we have attended several of the same virtual parties, but haven’t officially meet.

  1. She loves the Bloghop/Blogfest – In the last three months she has participated in Overcome Adversity Blogfest, Insecure Writer’s Support Group, Celebrate the Small Things, Top Ten Movie Blogfest, The Big Reveal and A to Z Blog Challenge.
  2. She loves Flash Fiction – A true creative can compose a story out of five sentences and she hits on several different genres, which is cool.
  3. She loves the blog community – She is a blogger, a writer, a contributor, a cheerleader to other bloggers and that makes her super cool in my book.

Thanks so much to Tyrean for the kinds words she said about me in the 3Up! Blog Hop

Post to Ponder

How to Write a Great Twitter Pitch by Ava at Writability – There is a Twitter Pitch party coming up on May 28th.  Details available here.

Happy Memorial Day!  My Depressing Yet Hysterical Military Career by Kristian Lamb – This story is hilarious and so unbelievable it has to be true.

What to do When You’ve Written the Worst Book Every by Amanda Fanger – It happens to all of us. So, read on for tips to handle it.

Stress and the Creative Process by Ali Cross – How do your emotions effect your writing?

There is Nothing Wrong with You by Randi Lee – I am tired of explaining myself to those who just don’t understand or don’t get it.

Coolest Things

Saw The Great Gatsby and it was a beautifully shot movie. Baz did a great job.  I enjoyed the movie immensely, but there was much more tension created in the book then in the movie.  Amazing thing to be able to create tension in the written word.

Saw Star Trek Into Darkness and I absolutely loved it.  Spock was so perfectly frustratingly Spockish and I love him.  I hate to admit it but James T. Kirk is growing on me.  Khan is so gorgeous and not just in the bad boy kind of way.

  1. I love people-watching in the arrival hall at the airport: there are just so many emotions crammed into one place!

    – and I’m looking forward to seeing both The Great Gatsby and Star Trek into Darkness 🙂
