Is There a Novelette Coronavirus?

Ah, the novel coronavirus! The way things are playing out, its story will be a novel, all right!

But does it have to be that way? Isn’t there anything that could turn it into a novelette coronavirus? One with a much shorter history of impact and grip on humanity?

It might well turn out that whomever labeled the coronavirus as “novel”, might have given it a far more meaningful name than they knew!

Last updated Mon 12:04 AM

As per the note left on my Day 1 post that was originally supposed to encompass the entire 3 day Labour Day weekend, I am now moving to doing three posts about the experience. I am writing enough to do three posts so why not? It keeps it more manageable for readers.

This post will expand as the day goes on. I will update last time of update on the first line as updates beyond the first one take place.

My 3-Day Novel Contest Experience Day 1

Three Day Logo

End of Saturday note:
I blogged far more than I ever thought I would to document my 3-Day Novel Contest so I will make this post into three posts, one for each day of the contest. During each day, I will “grow” each post, adding notes as I go. Hey, adaptation and flexibility is part of this contest. Why not the blog posts that accompany it? This is the link to the Day 2 post. Below was the start of this post.

Start of Day 1 Post

In a few minutes at time of writing this sentence on Friday night before the Labour Day weekend, I will start the 3-Day Novel Contest. I want to document some of that experience, and share it while doing so for anybody who cares. However, I don’t want to overwhelm my followers with a whole bunch of microblogging style posts. As a result, I’ll just “grow” this post as this weekend goes along. Anybody who cares to see how things are going can revisit this post at their convenience and see. Thank you!

Interesting Facts and Insightful Sayings for a Happy Mother’s Day

Mother's Day ComicHappy Mother’s Day, everyone! It’s the third biggest holiday next to Christmas and Easter, by some measures, although I have doubts that includes some non-Western holidays. However, if the world celebrated Mother’s Day, it would be easily the biggest holiday on the planet because we all have Mothers. Of course, we all have Fathers as well, but there aren’t nearly as many deliquent Moms as there are Dads so Mother’s Day would rule. It already does given Father’s Day doesn’t rank with Mother’s Day in the measure previously mentioned.
