D Things We Appreciate
Happy National Walking Day! Can you believe it’s been 43 years since Microsoft was founded? Not long after that, Windows was introduced, as well as about a million other apps that assist in how we work and write every day. I bet even Doc Holliday would call that a “Daisy.”
It’s fair to say we’ve got a daisy of a dual going on today, this first Wednesday of the month, when IWSG members convene through blogging, Facebook and Twitter to talk about whatever is on our writing minds and agendas. See what we’re all talking about here.
AND, we’re four days into the 2018 April A – Z Challenge!
As you might imagine, I not only appreciate but and am quite pleased with my weekly word count these days, even if it’s only temporary ;-) In addition, my writing journey this month includes cleaning up Dialogue between characters from distinctly different regions. I think that Diction may be the key to show; rather than telling, their Diversities. Your thoughts?
And, speaking of cleaning up, my Dishwasher is much appreciated after holiday dinners with the family. No one ever seems to mind using second-string utensils for Dessert. But the appliance that completes the whole clean-up routine is the Disposal. I don’t know how I ever managed without one (though I did once write a Dear John Letter to my disposal, as a creative writing exercise). Oh, we tried the composting technique for a time, when we had a garden. This is what happened:
Time to twist the Dimmer Switch,
Any thoughts? Can you add to the list of things we appreciate that begin with the letter D?
