I talked before about how I hate to choose favourites, it makes me uncomfortable to pick out people (even if I think they deserve it). I’m nearly at the end of the Writing 101 course and with one day to go I should really showcase some of the excellent writing that has been done.
The only problem I have is who, and what, to choose from the hundreds of posts made during the last few weeks. So as per the norm I am just going to pick some of the posts completely at random and see where we go. from there.
I mean by doing so I’m not really going to be able to highlight the Day 6 Assignment by Dreamer of Dreams. I’ll not be able to tell you how I agree with them that sometimes the assignments have felt a bit hard but in the end we have managed to produce something good. You would have found out that even if you have a routine sometimes just sitting in bed to writes does the job.
And I LOVE writing at night — it’s a weakness of mine. I keep telling myself that I’ll shift into morning writing mode, but it never seems to happen. I shall make it happen, soon. – Day 6 Assignment by Dreamer of Dreams
I’d like to tell you how the story by Rosemawrites, Phases of Agony, is also inspiring and shows that if you want to succeed at your goals you do have to go through a rough patch to get there. I guess if I did suggest you read it you’d have seen the uplifting ending, but I guess it’s up to you to find out.
And I have come to learn and to know more about myself. These are enough proofs that writing has greater perks than cons. – Phases of Agony by Rosamawrites
The problem with reading through all the posts is to find those that say a lot in a few words. If I was choosing favourites I would have suggested Jacquelineobyikocha’s Little Tweets. This answered a series of tweets in a brilliant and insightful way that I wish you could have seen.
My response: There is so much to learn. You never stop, until life stops. – Little Tweets by Jacquelineobyikocha
For those who do like the long reads there is plenty to choose from I just wish I could pick one like the fantastic On my soapbox (again) – with a ten bob note from ColleteB. If only you had visited this post you could see that while I used the idea of lists frivolously others have made important points about the common decency we should show to others in difficult situations.
Multiply that ‘ten bob’ by eighty four and that’s the amount UK law states is the amount a person being ‘sanctioned’* needs to survive. That amount in many cases is not being paid to those needy people entitled to at least this much State asistance while by one use of legal rule or another claimant’s are entirely deprived of the means to live and left with no income. – On my soapbox (again) – with a ten bob noteby ColleteB
So it is going to be hard to roundup some of the great writing from the last four weeks. I just don’t know who to pick.
