I found the link to WeWriWa (Weekend Writing Warriors) on Sue Ann Bowling's "Homecoming Blog". You share an 8-sentence snippet of your writing between Saturday at noon and Sunday at 9 a.m. (unsure which time zone as this is my first time), link it up at the site connected to the button above, and share reading, comments and critiques with the other participants. Join in!
Back in April, I participated in the "Blogging from A to Z Challenge" wherein I wrote a post every day but Sundays during the month, the first starting with "A", the second with "B" and so on. This year, I wrote around the theme of "Proverbs 31". As it is my intent to compile and rework these posts into an e-book, I thought that would be a good subject for my first foray with the Weekend Writing Warriors!
So here are my eight sentences for this week, from my post on "Altruism":
These are the people we know - our family, our friends. We get up early to make them breakfast, we stay up all night with them when they are sick. We drive across town to give them a ride when their car is not working.I realize the first sentence sounds a little strange as is. In the original posts, I quoted a couple of verses from Proverbs 31:10-31 before the 1st and 2nd samples. Should I include them from now on (for the Warriors posts)? Any other thoughts or suggestions?
It's not a matter of time, talent, or money. Everyone has something they can give or do to make someone else's life a little better - today! Maybe it's a meal for a homeless family. Maybe it's money for a cause or arts organization. Maybe it's a kind word to someone who has had a hard day.
Every single person reading this post, every single blogger participating the the A to Z Challenge, every single person in the world can do something to make the world a little better ... for everybody.
Have a great week, y'all!
