Broken and bent, that’s what I always say. Actually, I tend to say: “…rules are rules. Until you can change them, follow them.” But, that’s the boring day-to-day me talking, not the rule-breaking-damn-the-torpedoes me who wishes he did radical things. So, what rules(s) am I breaking and bending?
Well, I’m either breaking the “I don’t post on Friday” rule, or the “I don’t post more than once a day” rule. That depends on how accurate the WordPress schedule thingie is. You see, Linda G. Hill gave us the following for the final Just Jot January prompt:
“Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 31st is ‘your favorite thing/part/blog post of last year or last month.’ Talk about what you did or discovered that gave you happiness and/or success. Have fun!”
I appreciate the effort Linda puts into her prompts, so I wanted to participate one last time in JusJoJan. There are a lot of options in that prompt. But one thing jumps out at me, so I’m going to bend the prompt to be “what blog post gave you happiness last year?” I’m also going to bend the rule and slide this under Linda’s door at 11:59 pm. Still January 31st but not quite in time to count as two posts on Thursday and yet perhaps not counting as a Friday post either.
OK, I’ll wrap it up. The blog post that made me happy last year was when I published “Atonement Doors” – Doors from Atonement, Tennessee in conjunction with Teagan R. Geneviene’s brand new book launch.
I was happy when Teagan asked me to be one of the early readers of her book. I was happy when Teagan asked me to be a part of the launch. And, I was hugely happy with all the comments and support the post received. It was so much fun reading and responding to your comments and watching as Teagan responded as well.
Trust me, it’s an honor to be asked to help someone with their creative project. We all hold these endeavors very close to our hearts. It’s a leap of faith to ask someone to help. I am currently helping another author, and it’s a very special feeling to be able to contribute something meaningful.
I’ll let you go. Sorry for intruding on your Friday. If you are wondering what Teagan is up to these days, check out her latest serial story. If you’re wondering what I’m doing, check out the gallery for a sneak-peek at some of the photos I’ll be sharing at the bar tomorrow.
