Share Your World — 9/13/2021

It’s Monday, which means Melanie has given us another Share Your World challenge. Let’s see what she wants us to share today.

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

When all is said and done I will have said and done all that needed to have been said and done.

What does the world need less of?

Far-right, conservative, Donald Trump supporters (i.e., most Republicans).

Do you feel older or younger than your age?

Mentally and emotionally younger. Physically, about my age.

What is a cause you’ll always passionately support?

  • Common sense gun control laws
  • Voting rights
  • Women’s reproductive rights
  • Environmental responsibility

What is your personal affirmation if you have one? (For this instance, “affirmation” means emotional support or encouragement.)

Blogging Insights — Brighter and More Pleasant

Dr. Tanya has decided to change things up a bit for her weekly Blogging Insights prompt. Instead of using the Q&A format, she provides us with a quote about blogging or writing and ask us to express our opinion about said quote.

This week Tanya has, once again, quoted Stephen King…

“Writing did not save my life, but it has continued to do what it always has done. It makes my life a brighter and more pleasant place.”

When Tanya quoted Stephen King in last week’s edition of Blogging Insights, I didn’t totally agree with the King quote she offered up. But this week I am 100% with him. Writing — or, specifically for me, blogging — does make my life brighter and more pleasant.

I enjoy writing and expressing my thoughts, perspectives, and opinions in my posts. I also enjoy exercising my imagination by creating short, flash fiction posts. And I love hearing from those of you who read, like, and comment on my posts.

So yes. Most definitely brighter and more pleasant.

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #135

Welcome to Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The image below is from

For the visually challenged writer, the image shows a man standing alone in a field gazing at number of freestanding doors.

If this week’s image inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post. I hope it will generate some great posts.

FOWC with Fandango — Decisive

FOWCWelcome to September 13, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “decisive.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
