It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open
With all this NaBloPoMoing going on, I’ve been like a kid on holiday. There is always something to read! I could just hole up in my office with a cup of über strong coffee and exist on blog reading and caffeine for a week. It’s a shame I have to work and make sure someone feeds my pets, because that idea sounds tempting.
Have some moonshine with us
Come join yeah write’s weekend community at the moonshine grid. We link up our whatever posts—whatever word count, whatever topic, whatever format, from whatever date. The only no-no here is commercial and commercially sponsored posts. Other than that, link `em up!

NaBloPoMo and moonshine: together at last
With week two complete, those still hanging in there for NaBloPoMo earn a hearty congratulations from us here at the moonshine. Sticking with the challenge of blogging everyday after the romance has worn off demonstrates grit, valor and all kinds of fabulousness.
Being halfway through NaBloPoMo, you’re starting to feel the burn, maybe running low on creative fumes. Now is the time to fill up the tank; do something out of the ordinary, whether it’s taking a different route to work or stopping by a museum. Bake a batch of Snickerdoodles or spend fifteen minutes looking through a photo album from your high school years spent in the AV club. If all else fails, my old standby for inspiration is simply taking a walk. No headphones, just me and my thoughts—works every time.
