Blogging and Writing For The Next 30 Days


BLOGGING and WRITING for The Next 30 Days

I live for an opportunity to exercise my blog/writing discipline ( when I force myself to be on a posting schedule) all in the name of promoting the three P’s- People, Places, and Possessions. People who matter, places worth talking about and possessions I am happy to share. When I am in blog/writing mode I am work the three P’s and do my part to impart knowledge and inform the masses.
This November I have decided to join the company of the beautiful boasters of BlogHer.com for their National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). For the next 30 days, I vow to blog, write, and post! Sounds pretty simple right, well we will see if I am up to the challenge. I will channel the inner blog/writing discipline and see what comes out on the other side.

Taking part in the NaBloPoMo,also allows me to expand my reach with others in the blog/writing community. I am so a proponent of support and encouragement. I am looking forward to great blogging and writing in the 30 days to come.

Let the blogging and writing begin…

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 11/15/12 Write On, Alreday…National Novel Writing Month (Vol.11, Iss.3)


240/365 National Novel Writing Month begins

Write On, Already… National Novel Writing Month

Since 1999 a challenge has been set for those who care to participate and attempt to write a novel during the month of November. It is called the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event. It is a great  time to put your skills to the test and see if you can produce a novel. 

If you have an interest and want to participate you still have 15 days to get that novel written. If it sounds like a tall order for you there are online as well as local support in many cities and states to help keep you encouraged. 

I salute and honor any one who has joined the challenge and stayed the course, even if they did not write 50,000 words. 

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.

As you spend November writing, you can draw comfort from the fact that, all around the world, other National Novel Writing Month participants are going through the same joys and sorrows of producing the Great Frantic Novel. Wrimos meet throughout the month to offer encouragement, commiseration, and—when the thing is done—the kind of raucous celebrations that tend to frighten animals and small children.

Annual participant/winner totals 1999: 21 participants and six winners

2000: 140 participants and 29 winners

2001: 5000 participants and more than 700 winners

2002: 13,500 participants and around 2,100 winners

2003: 25,500 participants and about 3,500 winners

2004: 42,000 participants and just shy of 6,000 winners

2005: 59,000 participants and 9,769 winners

2006: 79,813 participants and 12,948 winners

2007: 101,510 participants and 15,333 winners

2008: 119,301participants and 21,683 winners

2009: 167,150 participants and 32,178 winners

2010: 200,500 participants and 37,500 winners

2011: 256,618 participants and 36,843 winners

Keep writing and reaching for your goal of 50, 000 words! You can do this!

April is National Poetry Month

Poetry Magazine is celebrating 100 years of publishing  read about it’s humble beginnings .

Poetry (founded as, Poetry: A Magazine of Verse), published in Chicago, Illinois since 1912, is one of the leading monthly poetry journals in the English-speaking world. Published by the Poetry Foundation and currently edited by Christian Wiman, the magazine has a circulation of 30,000 and prints 300 poems per year[1] out of approximately 100,000 submissions.[2] It is sometimes referred to as Poetry–Chicago.
Poetry has been financed since 2003 with a $200 million grant from Ruth Lilly.

Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry magazine began with the “Open Door”:

May the great poet we are looking for never find it shut, or half-shut, against his ample genius! To this end the editors hope to keep free of entangling alliances with any single class or school. They desire to print the best English verse which is being written today, regardless of where, by whom, or under what theory of art it is written.

In its first year Poetry published William Carlos Williams and William Butler Yeats; Joyce Kilmer’s “Trees” and Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro”; and introduced Rabindranath Tagore to the English-speaking world just before he was awarded the Nobel Prize.Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry magazine began with the “Open Door”:

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for March 29, 2012- A Jewel of a Woman, A Gift to Teaching (Vol.3, Iss.4)


 

A Jewel of a Woman, A Gift to Teaching

There are people who come into our lives and they make an impressions on our minds, hearts, and spirits. In the fall of 1982, my world was made better when I met “A Jewel of a Woman, A Gift to Teaching”, in the person of Mrs. Mildred H. Donaldson. Mrs. Donaldson was my home room teacher as I entered the wonderful new world of high school in my 9th grade year. As a freshman at historic Lucy Craft Laney High School,  in Augusta, Georgia I began the journey to becoming the woman I am today, and Mrs. Donaldson was a major influence in my life.  I was a bright-eyed teenager who was curious, clever, and concerned, Mrs.Donaldson had a way of keeping me focused on the gateway to living…education.

Mrs. Donaldson had a smile that was bright and at times appeared to beam lights that radiated to all who encountered her space. As our class prepared to take on  daily life and living, we could count on Mrs. Donaldson to give us words of encouragement to take us throughout our day. A Jewel, because she saw the best in her students, a Gift to Teaching because she stayed present in our lives that was who Mrs. Donaldson was each and everyday.

As students Mrs. Donaldson watched us grow and developed from freshmen and mid way through our Junior year, she went home to be with the Lord. We were sad to hear of her death but could smile knowing we were made better for the time she was in our lives. The Class of 1985, we dedicated our graduation to the memory of Mrs. Mildred H. Donaldson.

Today as I remember Mrs. Donaldson, I she her smiling down on the world proud of who were have become as adults and joyous to know she was a beautiful blessing to the world. Rest peacefully, sweet jewel and gift, one of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Donaldson.

Over the years, I have been blessed to write for fun,  for show, and write for work.  I want to thank God for the gift of writing it is a blessing that I do not take lightly or for granted. I thank  my family for their encouragement and also for being a point of reference.
