How’s Your Game?

Don't Blame the Sinner“The Chess Queens” by Muriel Streeter

Don’t blame the sinner
The one dressed in black
They both play the game
Sliding forward and back

Don’t praise the angel
The one dressed in white
Just like the sinner
She’ll capture your knight

The queen is your lady
With the most power of all
She’ll protect all you have
Or she’ll just let you fall

Your rook and your bishop
They can both dance around
While the squares are the same
This is not common ground

Do you worship the Devil
and deliver his sin?
Or do you trust in our God
who has cleansed us within?

You are the pawn
And this life is a game
For both black and white
The end is the same

The King will decide
But don’t sit and wait
You can be in check
Or you can checkmate

Event Calendar

Exquisite-Designs-Calendar-2014-9As a Zero to Hero participant my 29th (and almost final!) task is to continue to set myself up for post-Zero to Hero success by thinking through my editorial calendar and adding a regular feature if it works for my blog.

I have a sister blog (Every Day in 2014) that is somewhat structured as I post only in response to the 365 e-book of Writing Prompts.   I really enjoy that blog as it allows me to tell a little bit about myself each day based on the prompt.   I may get a little creative with it later, but for now I like the direction it is going.

As for this blog, I do try and post only a picture on Wordless Wednesdays and I have recently started the “Speakeasy” challenge over at Yeahwrite.  It has been fun and I would encourage other bloggers to sign up and join the fun.   Other than these two “regular features” I would rather keep my blog spontaneous, like I am.
