Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear ____________________

by Erica on October 28, 2013

To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge and include a link to this post, to generate a pingback and help others find the challenges. Please make sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed on Friday, and in our monthly newsletter.

For this week’s writing challenge, channel your inner Abigail Von Buren. Experiment with the question and answer format. Taking inspiration from a question you’ve been asked recently, whether in conversation with a friend or sent in from a reader, don your best counselor hat and share your expertise.

Not up for kickstarting your career as an advice columnist? We’ve got a few more ways to help get you involved with this week’s focus on advice.

  • What’s the best, or worst, piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
  • You’re the most important writer in the world, and everyone will be tuning in to your blog to listen to the one bit of knowledge you most want to share. What is it?
  • Do you live by the advice you give? Sure, it’s easy to dish out opinions, but are you a pillar of your own beliefs?

I give lessons on Cooking, Crocheting, Sewing and Knitting on a regular basis.  I do not feel this is classified as advice.  It is simply someone who has worked the problem successfully at a prior time who is able to lend a helping hand to someone who has never walked that mile yet.

Helping a friend who is a new mother and is nursing her first baby my advice is very simple.  The baby will let you know when things are not quite right.  If things are flowing in a set pattern and routine then life is good.  The plumber never puts in new pipes if there is not a problem.

If a problem is not going to make a difference a year from now, perhaps it does not need to be a top priority on the list.  A lot of problems have a way of working themselves out on their own without doing anything but praying for the correct way for God’s will to be done.  I always to suggest to pray for three days on the same subject before making a decision.  This gives a person time to think with a clearer head and thought patterns.

Just thinking before you speak as to how it will have an effect on others will sometimes change the wording that would have otherwise been blurted out.

Remembering others and that they have feelings that can get hurt.  To never speak when angry and to bite the tongue if it is going to be a cruel comment will save on an embarasing moment later on.

What questions as my reader would you like to see answered here?

Submit your questions and I will be glad to honestly answer them for you.  (Or find a great source for your answer)

TammyeHoney’s Advice column is now open to her readers.

Bring on the questions….

I am ready and waiting..

Weekly Writing Challenge: Thoughts About Facebook


What do you think? Is Facebook a boon to our lives, connecting us, making us closer, or, has it gone too far?
Answer the poll below, then expand on your thoughts and feelings about whether or not the internet is ruining our focus and our ability to relate to other humans in an original blog post on your site.
Be sure to tag your entry with DPchallenge.
Would love for you to take my poll.
I want to hear your comments on this.
I use Facebook for social as well as advertising and for reaching family.

oops
There are aspects that I am not happy with, that is true with any network.
There are simple changes that could be made to make life easier.
I got married, some of my friends do not recognize my new last name.
I am blocked from adding friends.
This does not stop me from using the network.
Life goes on.

Would love to hear what you think.
Headphones are not overkill, he needs all the help he can get

Weekly Writing Challenge: Stepping through the Door


CIMG0017

YOUR PLACE IN TIME-SPACE

The door to your house/flat/apartment/abode has come unstuck in time. The next time you walk through it, you find yourself in the same place, but a different time entirely. Where are you, and what happens next?

A lot’s probably changed in the time you’ve lived here, and it can be hard to imagine what might have happened, or be about to happen down the line. When thinking about where you might end up, time-wise, consider these questions:

  • Do you feel passionate about a certain historical period?
  • Or are you forever daydreaming about the shape of things to come?
  • If your strongest emotions brought you back to a time in your life, when would it be?
  • Who used to live here, before you? Who might be here when you’ve moved on?
  • What do you think will change most about the world around you in the years to come?
  • What do you think has changed most since your parents’ or grandparents’ generations?
  • When did some of your best (or worst) memories take place?
  • Are you more drawn to gritty realism, far-flung historical romances, or science fiction stories?
  • Do you have any regrets? How would you change the decisions you made if so?

That was the writing assignment for the Weekly Writing Challenge.
I would actually like to write about how different our life has been since Peachy has been in our life for almost one year now.  It is hard to believe that it will be one year next month since we went to the shelter to see what kind of puppy they had in the ad and she was there in the office.  So badly beaten that she could barely walk.  We have had returning customers since that year to our store who can’t get over the change in her.  She loves to have company now and comes out to greet each one.  She loves to get the attention that each bestows upon her.  She is very protective of my office area and her food.

She is quite the Queen around here and we can only wonder how anyone could have possibly have been so cruel to an animal.  She was supposed to have been my hubby’s side kick.

As irony would have it, after the passing of Sassy (She died from bone cancer) poor Trina was very lonely.  She had lost Nelly to a car accident when she was protecting Sassy from a pack of dogs and when the car went to the shoulder of the road to miss the ten dogs in the road, he hit Nelly instead.  Each day, Trina had left a dog bone in the front of the store anticipating the return of Nelly.

Now, Peachy is my shadow.  Trina is my hubby’s side kick and goes everywhere with him.  Ar night, we have a certain place that each of us sleeps on the bed.  A regular routine.  I would not trade any of this for anything.  Life is a precious commodity.  I am grateful for the time I have on this earth.  I do not dream of what I do not have.

I did not grow up with magazines of movie stars.  I did not grow up even knowing who was who in the movies.  Television was very limited in viewing.  I was only allowed to read books to escape into different worlds of fantasy.  I did not grow up having imaginary friends.  Being an only child, I grew close to my animals around me and played with them as if they were my friends.

Perhaps that is why my animals and I are so close now and why I do not long to step through the door and wonder what is on the other side.  I am content with what is on this side.

What are your thoughts on this subject?  Would love to hear.

Leave me a comment and let me know.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap Is there one?

Our blogs are platforms from which we share our experiences, opinions, and views with the online world. ForMind the Gap challenges, we want to hear what you think about a divisive issue. Each challenge will include a poll where you can cast your vote along with your fellow Daily Post participants. After you vote, tell us more about how you feel by expanding on the topic in a blog post. Be sure to visit other participants’ posts to get some healthy discussion going.

To participate, tag your posts with DPchallenge and leave a link to your post in the comments. Please be sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge; obvious attempts to link-bait will be deleted. We’ll keep an eye on the tag and highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed each Friday.

This week’s Mind the GapDoes watching violent movies inspire violence in the real world?

I have noticed with the poll on the site Weekly Writing Challenge that the majority have answered the same as myself.  Nice to know that I am not alone.  Rather than post about violence and showing what the violence is I offer this tribute.

https://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/04/22/half-mast-flags/

Now I ask you my readers, What do you think?  Here is your chance to speak up.  Do you think one is related to the other or is it all in the way we think and are brought up in life?

Would love to hear what you think about this.

This week’s Mind the GapHow do you prefer to read, with an eReader like a Kindle or Nook, or with an old school paperback in hand? Take the poll (below) and then explain your opinion by blogging about it on your site. Tag your post “DPchallenge,” so that we can be sure to find your contribution to the challenge.

Since we are asking this question I toss it to my readers and ask which do you prefer.  I do own a Kindle but also have a library of books that I do enjoy just sitting down and reading.
Guess I am on the fence with this one as it depends what mood I am in…
on the fence
I received mine as a birthday present from my youngest daughter.  It has been used quite a lot by both my hubby and myself.
kindle
We use the Kindle when we go for a long day to doctor appointments.  That has all of my hubby’s classic books that I got from Amazon for free.  Great amusement for him for the day and not a ton of heavy books to carry around. Will I upgrade?  That is a good question.
Take The Poll and Let me know what you think..
Please Be sure to place your vote…thank you
