    Well Midnight who's time zone?
    My friends and family call me Bill, you may also.

    When people meet people,
    Potential Strangers, Acquaintances, Friends.

    When dogs meet people,
    Potential Friends, Acquaintances, Strangers.

    I would rather be the Dog.

    It takes only,
    A second to meet,
    A moment to know,
    A Lifetime to forget.


    A word without thought can destroy.
    Please remember to think before you speak.

    So August's challenge has ended and so has the dynamic that Side-trips has been using of late, the memoirs that have been shared have all been interesting and enlightening.

    For September Side-rips will be taking a break. However it will be returning in October with a new look. I have decided to return side-trips to drawing on different non-fiction formats. There will be six NF formats used and it will change each month and the first format will be a NF article. Please submit any prompt ideas as the voting will commence on 1st October.

    There will also be a change in the way that we judge the challenge, which will be announced later.

    I hope you all look forward to the new look as much as myself.

    (Stay tuned for more about the change...)

    To get the ball rolling my prompt suggestion is:

    Troubled Times: Write a journalism article based on a current world issue...

    HB,
    I've been watching this from the sidelines, wanting to have a go, but nothing really " prompts " me nowadays and I regret that. It's nice to take part. As for September, we shall see.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    I am sorry to hear that Dither, I will be revealing the new format for side trips before the end of the month as I want it to be correct, I hope that the new format will help to prompt you to release the side lines. As you say we shall see and if you do not wish to write you can always join us and be a judge as I will be looking for some of those each month.

    My suggestion...

    Write an opinion piece called A Personal Theory - a NF article in which you make a convincing argument for a view that you hold.
    Life makes more sense if you don't take it personally.
