The Weekly Smile 7/15/2019 #weeklysmile – Halfway through Camp NANOWRIMO

My smile is because I have made it to the 25,000-word mark on NANOWRIMO. I did, however, lower my goal to 40,000 words because 50,000 was simply too much and I was writing like crazy and of course I was editing as I was going along. I might drop it just a bit more to 35,000 or 30,000. Since we have that choice on camp NANOWRIMO I just might take advantage of it. There are people writing just a half-hour a day and not even doing that so I feel pretty darn proud of myself.

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.”

    Really odd, but I figured out when the problem with comments are happening – it is when I go to the post using the link on this week’s Weekly Smile. I had the same problem with someone else today and then I puttered around and discovered that if I just went to the post, it works (like this one). Odd. This week’s smile post was odd over all – it received about 1/10 the traffic of most Smile posts. Oh well, Word Press sometimes does odd things….

      Yes it does. I have times when it will ask me to sign back in and I don’t know why that happens, but it does it occasionally.

      Writing is frustrating. I am writing a memoir and it is from my marriage in 1976 to the divorce in 1999. My memory is like swiss cheese (full of holes) and one memory might kick out another one and I am bounching back and forth and depending on the memory adding chapters etc. I am going crazy. I can hardly wait until I start on my childhood years.
