The Weekly Smile for the 10th of August, 2020 #weeklysmile


What made you smile?


I completed and won my Camp NaNoWriMo session this time. The best part is that I am still working on it. I didn’t lose interest like I usually do. I still have at least a third or more of the story that isn’t written at all, but I know where I want it to go so even though I quit with the outline I still know the story. Although it has evolved numerous times as I worked on it. It is a thriller and I needed a murder or two and a villain, the murderer. Something new for me. I am still smiling about this one.

Trent’s Rules:

Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas.  If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity.  Don’t smile about the misfortune of others.  Don’t smile in a way to excludes others.  Make sure a 12 year old can read it.

To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile.  Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment 🙂 ).   You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me).   Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile.  (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST
