* A Waggish Wednesday *

I'm in a silly mood tonight which is usually quite common for me. It made me think of the word "waggish" which I discovered a year or so ago. I looked back through my old posts just now and noticed that not only was it one year ago, it was in the month of September! I used it for two post titles. One on the 15th of September 2010, and one on the 30th.

If you've known me for very long, you know I love it when these ♪♫ Twilight Zoney ♪♫ things happen to me. These Cosmic Sensations. These Serendipitous Happenings. You get the idea.

So, what is my waggish post for tonight. (By the way, "waggish" mean roguish in merriment and good humor, mischievous, merry, droll, comical, and funny.....Pretty much describes me!)

Uh...maybe THIS is why I'm feeling so kooky tonight!

I'm feeling good because I'm writing. Last night I submitted a short-short fictional story for a contest.

AND I'm writing a story for "Chicken Soup for the Soul; I Can't Believe My Dog Did That!" I'm working on a humorous story I began some time ago. It's about our first dog, Rocky. I don't have any digital photos of him, but he looked very similar to Tiger Gal. I would be thrilled, obviously, if the story was accepted for publication!

Welcome to my newest follower, Kelley. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you!

  1. Gosh! You're in the zone! Sometimes, I feel that way after taking my thyroid medicine and chugging a Diet Coke.

    Good luck on your submissions. I think I'll get a Sonic Diet Coke with Lime on Saturday, and see what develops. You inspire me!

  2. Hey Becky, good feeling when the words flow. Maybe we'll make it into the same book and go on tour again. Good luck.

  3. Hey, I resemble that cartoon. Might I add, don't get your hair cut after drinking too much coffee. Just speaking from experience...

    Good luck with your submissions!!

  4. Yeah, the Twilight Zone is a weird and wonderful experience.

    Best wishes for success with those manuscripts!

  5. Hi Val! I wouldn't exactly say I'm in the zone, but it does feel good to submit something, at least once in a while!

    Hi Linda! Boy, you said it, sister! When the words flow, it's a fabulous feeling! I only wish it happened much more often....I'm not even asking for every day!

    Hey Janel! Too funny! And what was the problem with getting your hair cut?? Did you do it yourself? Let your 3 year old cut it? Let Coop cut it?! LOL

    Hi Clara! Thanks! Gotta love those writerly Twilight Zones! :)

  6. Wow, Becky, that's a new word for me! Well done on your short fictional story. I've just started on my story for Chicken Soup for the Soul: I can't believe my cat did that! I'm still catching up on unpacking and getting back into blogging and e-mails. Will write to you soon. (((Hugs))) Jo

  7. Hi Jo! Thanks and I'm so glad to hear you're working on a CS story about your cat! And yes, you have unpacking to do, don't you?? Could you possibly donate about 10% of your energy to me?! :)

  8. Hey Lady! Glad you are having fun writing and feeling waggish. I'll have to use that word as often as possible. The Stephen Wright quote at the end cracked me up - thanks!

    Janel, I wish I'd read your comment earlier today....

  9. Good luck with your submissions.

  10. Hey Melissa! Thanks! Glad you like the word "waggish". Isn't it awesome?! And that Steven Wright quote always cracks me up, too! We must have the same waggish personality! :)

    Hi Viki! Thank you. I'll definitely let y'all know if I receive good news!

    Hi Lynn! Thanks. Same back to ya!

  11. BECKY! You are a delight!
    I love reading your thoughts...especially on coffee...are you kidding that me in that comic drawing there....NEVER can have enough coffee in my world of creating and writing! lol

    It's nice to share a cup with consider this visit a virtual pour! One lump or two? I take mine with double cream NO sugar

    hope your writing takes you where you wish to go.
    there are different ways to define success...and if you write for passion...then you're writing for the right reasons!

    have a great night.

  12. Oh Carmelina! You're such a doll! Your comment already made my day, and I first read it around 5:30 am!
    Thank you so much. I love your blog, too! Oh, and thanks for the virtual coffee! :)

  13. I didn't know the word waggish but now I want to use it LOL. Great word!

    Yay for your writing, and best of luck with your submissions. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you! :)

  14. See I learn something new everytime I log on to my computer.
    I sure wish I could get it into gear and finish the three stories I have half completed. I have too many interuptions. I need one of those skull and cross bone placards on my office door.~Ames
