A big welcome to Shout Out Saturday
What’s it all about I hear you ask?
Shout Out Saturday is where I invite you to join in by leaving a link or a comment to something that has had an impact on you recently:
You can leave a link to your own blog, or maybe something you’ve read on someone else’s blog, or tell us about your favourite blogger, or simply share some good news, or even just drop in to say hello….
- no strings attached
- simply leave a comment below
- check out any other links if you want to
- use the hashtag #ShoutoutSaturday on social media
- no need to get caught up in too much compulsory sharing
- keep it family friendly
- Saturday can cover any day of the week
But first a quote ….
Happiness is a direction, not a place.Sydney J Harris
My Shout Out(s) this week go to….
1. Furious Fiction
I was introduced to Furious Fiction through my MOJO November writing course and entered a story for the first time! I was one of 1100 other writers to submit a story and while I didn’t win I was very happy with my story! I’ll be sharing it with you next week.
Furious Fiction is run by the Australian Writers’ Centre, and is held on the first Friday of the month, it’s free to enter, has a prize of $500 and entries have to follow certain conditions – 500 words or less and include a variety of words, setting and props.
Congratulations to the winning story by Romany Rzechowicz for a great entry – you can read more and see which stories were shortlisted here: Furious Fiction
I’ll definitely join in again, just for the fun of writing 🙂
2. Denyse Whelan for #lifethisweek
Shout out to my blogging pal Denyse Whelan who runs a great linkup each Monday called #lifethisweek. She has optional prompts for each week and has become a good friend, although we’ve still to meet in person.
She has been writing her life story as well as her journey with neck and head cancer – she’s an amazing woman!
3. This short animation of The Rat Race made complete sense to me!
Our MOJO writing course tasks this week have included writing about our happy place, what we CAN do and other creative bits and pieces – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it all!
Shout out to all those involved in finding interesting snippets for us each day! Like the one below.
This link made me laugh – 61 cake decorators who took instructions too literally! As someone with a major birthday coming up, it made me think about what instructions to give for my cake, if I was asking to have one made for me!
Are you keen to share something or leave a shout out to someone? I hope so – all you have to do is leave a comment or a link!
Has someone done something nice for you, have you witnessed a random act of kindness, have you read something interesting or watched a good movie lately?
Anything really – it’s up to you!
As always, feel free to share and get the word out there #ShoutoutSaturday
Thanks again for all your support, it’s much appreciated.
