Floating Lanterns


If you have ever seen the Disney movie Tangled then you’ll remember the floating lantern festival from the movie. The lantern festival is a real thing. There are a few all over the world with the original and largest being in Thailand. Here are a few tips for using them: It takes a few people to set off each one. One person needs to hold it while the other lights. You hold them while they warm up and they become warm enough to float.

There are lots of sources online for these, including right here. Would you ever use floating lanterns at your event?

Day 4 ~WHEN YOU ARE WRITING, DO YOU PREFER TO USE A PEN OR A COMPUTER?~

When you are writing, do you prefer to use a pen or a computer?

What a great topic to write about whether I use a pen or computer to do my writing?  I do both.  I love to make notes and doodle ideas into a notebook as a matter of fact I am a huge notebook, journal type gal.  I have a notepad next to my computer for writing ideas and such.  I easily transfer those thoughts into a post I wish to write about.

On the other hand if I am in a huge hurry, I either have posts already in my “Save Draft” mode of wordpress.  I easily add to it or just post photo’s as it’s easier when I have nothing really to say.

Although I wish to write and become an author and am currently working on my ebook and looking to self publish next.  Oh how I love to write!  Pen or computer takes me away into a world where I hope to touch all of my readers.

Day 3 ~ Writing Prompt ~ “Music”


If you’re participating in NaBloPoMo in November 2011

Thursday, November 3, 2011
Can you listen to music and write?  I am one person who can multi-task and listening to music is the most relaxing thing to do while I am writing.

What song did you hear today? The songs I play while I am on my computer while writing can be much of a mix but Yanni and Enya seem to be my favorite to play as I write.

Here are lyrics I love:

Day 4: Beautiful in my Eyes by Joshua Kadison

 

You’re my peace of mind in this crazy world.
You’re everything I’ve tried to find, your love is a pearl.
You’re my Mona Lisa, you’re my rainbow skies,
and my only prayer is that you realize
you’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

The world will turn and the seasons will change,
and all the lessons we will learn will be beautiful and strange.
We’ll have our fill of tears, our share of sighs.
And my only prayer is that you realize
you’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.

When there are lines upon my face from a lifetime of smiles,
and when the time comes to embrace for one long last while,
we can laugh about how time really flies.
We won’t say goodbye ’cause true love never dies.
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.
The passing years will show that you will always grow
ever more beautiful in my eyes.

What about You?

 

 

Day 1: Writing Prompt-What is my favorite part about writing?


What is my favorite part about writing? I love that I have to freedom to write what I want.  I can choose topics of any one that I love.  Since joining this challenge I am going to try to challenge myself more than normal, even as I am getting ready to move for the 3rd time in one year to my final house destination (I hope).

That is the writing prompt for the first day of National Blog Posting Month: NaBloPoMo, as it is affectionately called.

The task is to publish a post every day of the month. This is one of my writing goals for this month.

I have been featured as a book reviewer here:http://midwestbookreview.com/rbw/nov_11.htm#rc
