We are now open to one and all submissions for #ForTheLoveOfLove!
This is the time it begins, in earnest, with all the fervor in my being.
It is now approximately an hour before my mother goes back to the hospital, to receive her cortisone IV for the next few hours and she’s panicking again.
I’m panicking too, because I can’t go with her this time.
But here I am instead, where I need to be to help her the most.
Your contributions to this project are not only to help raise funds for the surgeries she will come to need. It is not just for the medical work that will save her eyesight and her life.
It is to show her what she has to fight for.
She’s losing fight, not because she isn’t brave, but because she feels her bravery is our burden and her whole life, she has been drilled into the belief that she is a burden.
No one we love is a burden ever … and so showing her the power of hope, of sharing something worth fighting for, it is to give her the fight and the hope she needs to want to make it out of this alive.
I know what I have to do to achieve this is insane, but bring it on. I can do this. I can make it happen.
Now what can you do to help me?
Do you or anyone you know have a story to tell about the maddening beauty that is loving anyone in this world? Do you know formatters, graphic designers, social media marketers, content creators?
Who can you get me in touch with? Who can you get in touch with to share this, to spread the word?
If you need hope throughout these frightening times, then #ForTheLoveofLove is for you too!
It is for everyone!
It is something that I want to share, spurred by the fact that I, a daughter, a sister, a best friend, do not want my mother to suffer.
And the extent to which I want this project to go … yes, maybe it will need more than one miracle to get us there, but I am willing to work.
If you are willing to believe.
And if you do, #ForTheLoveofLove needs you. For a chance to break the hate in the world with a little bit of love. For a chance to save a family’s will to want to be alive. To be free. To spread more good than anything else, doing the things we do and love doing.
A chance for a united front internationally, for all the world to see.
For all the world to believe in.
For the power of the internet to connect as many people with stories to tell as possible. And then to share them.
So that, come what may, we know … #ForTheLoveofLove is an ode to love that will never fade, no matter what.
Now, #ForTheLoveofLove …
Will you join me?

The Very Best of Seven Deadly Sins part 1!

Share

Wow, what an absolutely endlessly awful few days!
Someone here thought it’d be a good idea to rip up all the carpets in this house and tile the floors, so the innards of the rooms had to be divulged and vomited into every inch of open floor in the rest of the house for like, THREE DAYS!
I slept outside on the stoop! OUTSIDE! AT NIGHT!
Anyway, I’m back in my room and the house is clean. Blessed bloody day!
As you can imagine, my day has been really busy so getting to do this only now … not my intention. I promise!
The beginning of this year has not been a good beginning. Not because we aren’t driven and determined to do everything, buuut because I had food poisoning over Christmas and New Year, which was so much fun, and then when the first issue of the #200WT was due to release, the blog went and broke itself.
For two weeks.
So, not been without challenge. And a lot of challenge, because ain’t nothing like a tech issue in the first week of the year to make you wanna tear your hair out.
To all who contributed to what should have been last week’s edition … I am so sorry for this. I’m really trying my best to fix everything up.
And now, before I burst into tears, again, to the #FP’s!
The theme last week was Seven Deadly Sins and I swear to God, I was hooked. I was enthralled. Horrified, in places, cos hell you guys can get some thoughts, but it was one of the very best themes I remember and I’d like to thank everyone who participated, and helped make it a day I will never in a million years forget.
As a side note, this also marks the first time Gray Girls Team sister, @luciadevic, is making the #FP selections so all that you’ll read hereafter is what my brilliant sister decided was gonna stay! Wheeeee!
Off with you and enjoy the Very Best of Seven Deadly Sins part 1!

The Very Best Of Dishonorable

Share

cemetery-1670223_1920

 

Well, WHAT A WEEK!
And not in the good “what a week,” but the kind of “WHAT A WEEK” that makes a bad week look like happy-doodly fun.
And now I’m confused.
I don’t have time to start over, so whatever …
Well, this has been a strange time. It’s October, time is flying and I can’t for the life of me understand HOW … it’s just confusing.
BUT, it has marked some pretty exciting things, like @SimplyCntryGal’s Special Catch-Up edition on She Ran, which made a super splash in @200WordTuesdays world, and now the worlds are about to collide, and we wanna share this with you!
So drop what you’re doing and go and read up! It packs some mighty punches!
And now, before I collapse into a snoring pile of ZZZZZZZZZZZz’s, let’s get to the #FP’s!
Last week’s theme was Dishonorable! No matter how sordid Dishonor sounds, you guys still made some brilliant magic, and indeed, continue to do so every week, which is just about one of the most mind-blowing things there are, because your imaginations just never run dry and I honestly revere that!
Anyhoo!
I am chasing sleep so seriously right now, I’m looking at these words through a kaleidoscope of pillows and I need me some sleep, so I can be sharp for tomorrow’s rund of #FP!
While I contemplate sheep … YOU ENJOY The Very Best Of Dishonorable!

I accept
I wear it all like a cape
Twirl & watch it fly
As I dance
In exile
Free

Eric ‏@Blade4hire

Assaph Mehr ‏@assaphmehr

so much as to say;
remembrance of life
as it flies away

Megan Cutler ‏@Megan__Cutler
Legaran would choke if she realized he hid her treasure for 15years, while she tore the world apart, so he could use it for blackmail #FP
G. S. Jennsen ‏@GSJennsen
He’d grown weary of competing justifications. Better that the good guys be honorable, the bad guys evil, & a proper chasm separate them. #FP

Megan Cutler ‏@Megan__Cutler
If he wanted something, he would find a way to have it, no matter how many walls and locks someone tried to stick it behind. #FP

Megan Cutler ‏@Megan__Cutler

Aneesha Shewani ‏@tweetoeuvre
#FP #fsmpy
I am tangled
In the web of your
Twisted lies
Like an insect
Preyed upon
Waiting for a
Dishonourable death
With no hope
No escape

Elizabeth Zertuche ‏@WriterEZertuche
The family name aside, Berta could not dishonor her promise. Her child would lose a father, but, this way, the town could keep theirs. #FP
Aneesha Shewani ‏@tweetoeuvre
I need to look into
Your deep blue eyes
See them reflect
The stories you told
Sift through them
Separate truth
From dishonourable lies
#FP

Aneesha Shewani ‏@tweetoeuvre
#FP
A prick of thorns
From the rose bouquet
You lay on my coffin
May atone you for the tears
And dishonourable lies
You brought into my life

Karina Lawrence ‏@KarinaLawrence

Joshua Haveman ‏@JDHaveman

fit for neither day nor night
and yet the Pompous Orange bell tolls
ringing out our weary souls
#FP

Carly Racklin ‏@willowylungs
They had left him with nothing but his armor, sword, and shield—a reminder of all that he had been, all that he had ruined for himself. #FP

Kris. always Kris.. ‏@superkrispydj
#fp it went on record as dishonourable discharge, but he was saving lives, not following orders. Children are not meant to see those things.

Sarah Brentyn ‏@SarahBrentyn
“Deal?”
“How do I know I can trust you?”
“You act as if I’m a dishonorable man.”
“You’re the devil.”
“Tsk-tsk. I’m an honest demon.”
#FP

Rêve-Ree ‏@ReeDwithaBee
As a kid, he would mock, take the p*ss & diss honourable-sounding sentiments, preferring the honesty of honourable actions to rhetoric. #FP

Aneesha Shewani ‏@tweetoeuvre
In the reeds by the lake, dishonourable fingers shred her dignity. Her viridity slowly bled into the grass, camouflaged, lost forever. #FP

Bruce Wisener ‏@thebrucewisener
When he came to the office the next morning, it seemed like every face pinched in revulsion, smelling the stink of his guilt. #FP

jfx mcloughlin ‏@jfxmcl
… drummed out of the service under a cloud of shame, last year heroics completely forgotten, except maybe in history books #FP #vss

Phoenix Grey ‏@phoenixgrey85
A dishonourable man. Or maybe just an unwise one. Maybe just one who made a mistake and has regrets. Maybe just human. #FP

Denise Walker ‏@DeniseWalker_
It’s so small
That guilt laden tick
Reminding me of the sins
I committed against us.
#FP

Anna ‏@CurleySueView
In the cool of the evening
He walks alone along the river.
He cries,
Prays the dishonor in the desert
Doesn’t find him there.
-War #FP

Tracy Meyerhofer ‏@FuzzyPupPress
He didn’t mean to do it
Got caught all the same
Wondered what he’d do now
Himself only to blame
Dishonorable discharge
Brought only
Shame
#FP

Fitness B ‏@Beatonm5
“It was a mistake,” you said. But here’s the thing, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you. #FP
Anna ‏@CurleySueView

“Yes, but a promise is an oath.
To break it would dishonor him.”

S. R. Mulrune ‏@mulrune

their wrong as ‘right’..

#FP My parents divorced me for doing glamour modeling, bringing shame on the family, but they didn’t say no to the money I’d made.

L.M. Pierce ‏@lmpiercebooks
“Then you’re a bad dog of an entirely different sort. Here you are, still bidding the dead. Come on, buddy! There’s plenty to feed us!” #FP

L.M. Pierce ‏@lmpiercebooks
She now understood the dark brown stains on the dog’s feet & muzzle. Faded blood was the only remaining evidence… #FP

AˢᵉᵉᵐSᵃˣᵉᶰᵃ ‏@RedNightHawkAKS
She’d long ago decided the best defence was a good offence, loudly labeling others dishonorable to draw attention away from her actions. #FP

Shannon Reber ‏@ShannonArtWrite
I show them my scars as proof he was not a good man. They do not believe. They say I dishonor his memory. He had no honor, only villainy #FP

Shannon Reber ‏@ShannonArtWrite
My father died with honors. How ridiculous. We are alone, unloved and unprotected. Death is dishonor enough. #FP

Alicia ‏@demiurgent_G
It felt dishonourable but to let him keep the device would inevitably result in horror. She crept away into the night holding it to her. #fp

God is Tricksy ‏@AdrianYoung10
I had a HUGE zit once.
His nickname was Corporal Spot.
One day I popped him.
It was icky.
He was discharged.
(Dishonourably I may add)

Chie ‏@Chierafied

Phoenix Grey ‏@phoenixgrey85

“That’s why you cut your hair?”
“I need to look respectable, donn’t I?” #FP

Chie ‏@Chierafied
One youthful mistake; lifetime of repentance. #FP #sixwordstories

Chie ‏@Chierafied
Her father’s stare was cold and unforgiving. Her heart wilted in her chest, tears of shame burned her eyes. So much for making him proud.#FP

Katsyarina ‏@Katsyarina_L
Dishonorable in every possible way
I live my life alone
astray
I hide behind the bars of words
Thruths&Lies that sting&hurt
I’m a fraud #FP

Javier Luna ‏@MoxieJavi
To stab a king is dishonor
To save a kingdom is honor
But when the two coincide
Who is then to decide? #FP

Paul Burvid ‏@PaulBurvid
He wasn’t executed for the murder; he failed to properly file a kill intent. Bad form, that. Raffkan society simply won’t tolerate it. #FP

Carly Racklin ‏@willowylungs
She kneels silently in a single endless shadow and watches her once-glittering crown crumble to dust in her pale, unworthy hands. #FP

Thomas Creamer ‏@TheTCreamer
It’s excitement. The elixir in a woman that if not measured degrades into a poison called regret. Excitement has a very short half life #FP

Dante & The Lobster ‏@Marcgalez
In an orange halo they orchestrated their escape; free to rid the reflection of judgment from a dishonorable marriage. #FP

JS Rowan ‏@JFBattleBridge
How dangerous a sentiment.
Let’s all be wicked, for honour is foolishness? No, a thousand times no! #FP

Dante & The Lobster ‏@Marcgalez
Stenciled figures loomed around the watering hole, chipping away tomorrow’s bones, bereft of scruples or mastic qualms #FP

Dante & The Lobster ‏@Marcgalez
“Just plastic” she pushed their molded heads into a kiss, like the plastic beads and rosaries planted, mere syllables honoring a birth. #FP

JS Rowan ‏@JFBattleBridge
