The Weekly Smile 04/08/2019 #weeklysmile – Writing a lot right now, up all night

I am writing a lot. I am up all night writing, sleeping during the day and then up again and writing. I have joined 2 writing groups and that added to the A to Z Challenge and my regular prompt writing is making for a lot of writing. I have also been writing a lot of non-fiction about my life mainly while married. A published writer thinks I should try for a memoir. Maybe, thinking about it as a possibility. I am also rewriting a lot of posts on my other blog and also deleting some that were written for prompts that just don’t work any more and/or updated due to broken links since a lot of those old prompts are no longer available.

Busy, but happily writing right now. Smiling through it all as I am getting good reviews of my work in these 2 groups and that helps as some of them are published.

Trent’s Rules

What made you smile?

****

Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week.  Why don’t you share it?  I hope you can join in!

Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas.  If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity.  Don’t smile about the misfortune of others.  Don’t smile in a way to excludes others.  Make sure a 12 year old can read it.

And remember, the Smile can be anything, large or small.  Nothing, nothing at all is too small for a Smile!  Sometimes taking time to notice those small, every day smiles is more important than those once in a lifetime huge ones 🙂

To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile.  Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one).   You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me).   Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile.  (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).

Try to use the hashtag #WeeklySmile when you use Twitter or other social media that uses hashtags. I searched Twitter and found that #weeklysmile had been used only a handful of times back in 2012 and 2013. It hasn’t been used since. So it’s ours! I also registered it on Twubs.

You can use the graphic at the top. It is the official graphic for the event.

Now go out there and find something to smile about! 🙂

“There are days I go in search of the kind, compassionate, loving and beautiful. Despite what we sometimes see on the news, FB and elsewhere, there is much more beauty in the world than ugliness, much more kindness than hate or cruelty. Perhaps we should all have a goal to make at least one person smile every day.”

          Thanks, problem is that I have to be in the mood and my bipolar affects those moods. Just like my sewing, my writing is great while manic and then I struggle during the depression.

      My son found and encouraged me to join a writing group. I enjoyed it for a couple of months and then they shut it down and I found another one and then one of the other members of the first group opened one so now I have 2 to write for plus all of my prompts and redoing my writing blog. Busy, busy.
