I’m just gonna say it: I love Harrison Ford. I loved the first Star Wars because of Han Solo. I watched that movie multiple times, multiple times, sitting through all the space and fantasy story, just for those scenes when my hero, Han Solo/Harrison Ford, made an appearance. So when I saw him on this omaze video, naturally I had to watch.
Isn’t it nice when your heroes use their powers for good?
I wasn’t familiar with omaze, but then I found out how they work, supporting amazing causes where folks could contribute and possibly win a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Well. All I can say is I almost love them as much as Harrison Ford.
So here we are in October and that can mean only one thing, y’all: MY BIRTHDAY!
Yeah, it’s pretty scary. It might even be fun. But it probably won’t be as scary fun as the cauldron of Halloween writing contests I’ve stirred up for you. Take a peek at this creepy lot:
Saugus.net Halloween Ghost Story Contest (Brought to you by those creepsters from New England. I’m already shiverin’ in my boots. Also, age groups from elementary to adult. BOOooooooOOOOooooo.)
Scariest Opening Scene Contest (Sponsored by the Tell-Tale Publishing Group. And hey, it’s just the opening. Plus, you can win the Vincent Price Award. Vincent Price, y’all. A chill just zipped down my spine.)
Halloween Short Story Contest (From the folks at Amberjack Publishing. And the winner will get $500. Yeah. Five hundred dollars. ACCCK!)
So off you go–scare up some good writing. And by good, I mean horrible. OoooooOOOOooooo.
I am like the worst when it comes to Pinterest.
Actually, I’m not like the worst. I am the worst. But as I was checking the old inbox a second ago, I came across something from Pinterest along the lines of “Words of Wisdom.”
Now, I am a sucker for words of wisdom. I love words of wisdom. I have words of wisdom plastered on sticky notes and stuck all over my office. And on the walls of my bedroom (which is also the Beneficent Mr. Hall’s bedroom. So yeah, it’s becoming a bit of a problem). So of course, I had to take a few seconds to click on “Words of Wisdom.”
Know what I found? WRITING TIPS ON PINTEREST!!!
Thousands and thousands of writing tips. On Pinterest. That I could follow! And whenever a new tip (or words of writing wisdom) comes along–zip! It’s in the old inbox! (I found these stickers there–Printable Planner Stickers, and I thought, oh my word! STICKERS! For planning your writing week! Not to mention a couple pdf’s of writing freebies on the same website! Well, it was a veritable smorgasbord of writing words of wisdom, right?)
Anyway, now that I’m following this neat little Pinterest group, I’ll be in the know instantly! Or whenever I get around to checking my inbox stuff.
I’m sort of the worst when it comes to checking my inbox stuff.
