It’s been about a week since I’ve posted, but not due to lack of writing. Well, it was due to lack of writing for one day. Yesterday was the first day in 2021 where I didn’t do any writing, but I needed a break after editing, rewriting, and writing bits and parts of a 50,000-ish word short novel of literary nonfiction I had originally written for the 2019 3-Day Novel Writing Contest. I did this for an application for a writing mentorship in Canada. It’ll be a long shot, but the way I look at it, nobody ever bought a lottery ticket thinking it was going to be a short shot, you know? And you can’t win the lottery unless you play, as I often say, for one of my many life philosophies I had written for myself over the years that I had blogged about.
I am learning about five terms per day in 2021 from what I read and podcasts I listen to. Of those, not all are interesting, or potentially useful to try to retain in my vocabulary since I can’t remember all the terms I learn. However, every now and then, I find upon terms that I deem to be both, interesting and useful, to me, and will write more about them to share with readers, as well as help retain them in my memory since writing about things helps me retain things better. I will also include the sources from where I learned of these terms, which I always catalogue as tweets on my DigitalCitizen Twitter account that you can follow if you like learning about new terms on an almost daily basis. Today’s terms for sharing include inverse charisma, crown shyness, and foodprint, each with definitions.
When something you don’t like comes along frequently on your Facebook feed, like some annoying meme, there is no way to filter it out at the moment. It’s a feature the Facebook Newsfeed sorely lacks, which’s presence could be highly valued by its users.
