The first blog I want to share with you, will be of paramount importance on November 6 th. 2008. On that date Mimi Writes will launch her Blog Blast For Peace 2008. She hopes to get as many blogs as possible to write an article for peace. Of course I’m signing up, what better cause than peace. Besides her blog blast, she writes some inspirational stories, and some reminiscent stories. Naturally, being fond of reminiscent muse’s, I had to explore her site a little. She wrote an article about when she was young, and her grandfather would sit with her and eat her mud pie’s and exclaim “Yum Yum to die for”. What she was talking about is how her Grandfather would make her feel like she could do anything. She also talked about her writing, and how she could “bleed out on the pages”. The post is titled Don’t Mind Me, I’m Just Having a Conversation With Myself. She also writes about her feelings of vulnerability in her writing. Swing by and visit her blog, and perhaps sign up for the Blog Blast For Peace 2008, but above all read Blue Whales and Bubbles.
The next site, is Bugle For The New Day, authored in memory of the bloggers father. He is posting his fathers novel that is a family saga set in a Wales, United Kingdom, late 19th century mining community. He has posted Chapter 1 up through part 7. He has to transcribe his late fathers novel, and is doing so by installment, like many of the other sites I enjoy so much. I have so far only read the section, but I love what I have read so far. The late Frank Pearson had a talent for capturing the reader with his strong words, and scene building descriptions. I Look forward to reading more, as time allows.
Now I just happened across this next site, Fiction at Courage my Friend, and found myself reading a wonderful crime family story. Winter Rain is a fictional story about “violence, revenge, and other family values” The author, Chris Poirier, has written the story in installments, that are easily navigated. I fell in, and had quite a bit of difficulty pulling myself out. The writing style grabs your attention, and just won’t let go. Chris Poirier, has other fictional writing on the site, but I have not gotten to them yet. I am going to have to finish Winter Rain first. The installments are short, and easily managed. The site is amazingly easy to navigate, and set up in a manner to encourage reading.
Flash Fiction is a site authored by Rebecca Jane, a freelance writer and novelist. She writes some commentary, and whole lot of short Fiction. You’ll find book reviews, and stories like To Live and Die in Bed-Stuy. This is a quaint story of two women who go to a party in Bed_Stuy, and find themselves stuck in a snow bank upon leaving. A man with “wild eyes” comes along and digs them out. It is an unusual story, but a fun read.
Adventures of Austin Girl, is a truly fun blog. Most of her stories have a comic basis to them, and are about Austin Girl, a reporter for the Daily Dirt. Her latest story, Ghost Hotel, was fun to read, and found me giggling at the writers style. She also has some really fun articles about Fat Bastard, an over weight Beagle. I can assure you of a good laugh to lighten your day.
If you want a fall out of your chair, rolling on the floor laugh, simply visit Life in The River. This is your basic redneck river dwellers blog site. The stories have that view of life from the perspective of a down right country girl. I find myself laughing uncontrollably just about every time I visit her blog. The author is Derfina, and she describes herself as follows
I spend a lot of time poking my nose into other peoples' bidness via their blogs. I clean up an awful lot of feathers. You can dress me up, but you can't really take me out. I travel a lot when I can find bird sitters. I drink, prolly to excess, but I rarely get sick because my body is a hostile environment to germs.How can you resist a description like that. Stop by and read the post about her husband reading her blog. It’s simply funnier than hell, and reminds me of place I have been very familiar with in the past.
Last but certainly not least, Go by Vixens Den and sign her petition for preemies. Recently she lost a grandson who passed as a result of being born premature. She has since become active in bringing to light the terrible fact that more newborns die from premature birth than any other cause.
