It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Got your bathing suit? Towel? SPF 30 (or 50, if your undertones are Casperish, like mine)?  Because it’s Memorial Day weekend in the US, we thought a pool party was in order. Cold drinks and bomb pops are on ice, so grab yourself something tasty and settle into one of the lounge chairs while we get this party started.

Make a splash

This is the perfect place to spend your holiday weekend, as this is yeah write’s more relaxed space. We like any post you may want to share. Any length, any subject, any form; poem, essay, microstory, whatever you want. The only rule we keep here is no sponsored or commercial posts.

This is the badge you are looking for

Over in the left sidebar is a list of yeah write badges containing the codes you need to satisfy the backlink requirement (also called a permalink) of the Inlinkz app. The badge for the moonshine looks like this:

Under the badge is a few lines of code. See that? Copy it exactly then paste it into the “text” or HTML view of your post editor. If you don’t copy it exactly, you will get an error message from the Inlinkz app. If you get confused or your browser is uncooperative, visit the Inlinkz step-by-step instructions here.

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Are you ready for the weekend? It’s time to shut off those office computers, close up shop and head home. No more spreadsheets, no more budget meetings, no more getting that printer to work by shaking out the ink cartridge. I am certainly ready to be done filing paperwork–are you?

Lazy days

On the weekends, yeah write needs to relax a little too; hence, this weekend moonshine grid. We get up to all kinds of mischief here, as we love to read any post you want to bring us. No word counts, no genre, no publish-by date, no prompts, no problem. The only rule here is no commercial or sponsored posts: this is a cash-free zone.

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Now that it’s finally warming up for springtime in the Western Hemisphere, it’s time to pull out the umbrella, beach towels, bathings suits and flip-flops from the dusty kingdom under the bed. If you don’t have a beach nearby, at least find a pool so you can take a dip for relief from the heat. Pour a frosty cocktail–or as we like to serve here, moonshine–and relax with a book, because not only is it heading toward summertime, it’s also the weekend.

Summer breeze

For yeah write weekends, we like to keep the fare light and the challenge nonexistent. Here, you can link up whatever you want to–sonnet, soliloquy, short fiction, long fiction, personal essay about the time your dog ate the bedroom door, or even a listicle from 2011. The only restriction we keep here is no commercial or sponsored posts. Keep it real, my friends, keep it real.

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

I read a lot of books, and last year, one of my favorite discoveries was the Magicians trilogy. Since then, my passion for fantasy has revived after a bit of a lull when I finished the Harry Potter books. I have collected to-read titles from friends and am hoarding them, hoping to fall head-over-heels for something–just as I did when a teacher first handed me a copy of A Wrinkle in Time all those years ago.

Has anyone else rediscovered a lost love?

Fantasize on this

Speaking of fantasy, have I got one for you. This place where we’re camping out for the weekend is the equivalent of a writer’s getaway. To join this grid, just link up any post you want. Really, any. Word count, prompts, publish-by dates all disappear in this corner of yeah write, and we read and comment on whatever post you sling our way. We only ask that you refrain from sponsored or commercial posts, because ad-free is our idea of a perfect fantasy.

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Yeah write stays open on the weekends because sometimes bloggers just want a few friendly readers. If you’re not sure what to post here, maybe try something extremely out of your comfort zone–if you usually write tearful essays, try a funny listicle; if you usually write nonfiction, try out a spy thriller fiction plot you’ve been itching to fiddle with. The moonshine is the perfect place to experiment with new genres and new styles.

That said, the moonshine is really the place to read and be read–we encourage you to read every post on the grid. If you can’t hit them all, at least read all the posts in your row. This is what makes it a community.

Listen up

Want to hear the rules? Well, you’re out of luck, because there are no rules here. You can post whatever you want. No word count limits, no prompts, no hassle. You can even recycle your favorite post from 2010; you know the one I’m talking about, the one about the guy with the stuff who was at that thing one time? Well, I kind of lied because there is one rule here, but it’s practically nothing: no commercial or sponsored posts. That’s it.

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Sometimes we just need to decompress for the weekend. After a week of scrambling, of putting our best foot forward, of showing up, of getting all the things done, of striving, of competition, we deserve a break. Blogging is not just about becoming a better writer, but also about sharing and forming connections with people. That’s what this old still is for–to gather together and share, just for fun.

Rules at the still

That’s what’s so relaxing about hanging out at the moonshine: there are no rules here. You can link up any post you fancy. Do you have a post from last year that didn’t get enough comment love the first time around? Maybe a short story you’ve been reworking that may not be ready for the fiction grid? How about an essay that may be too long for the challenge grid? The moonshine is the perfect place for those kinds of posts. The only rule we abide by here is no commercial or sponsored posts, so you pretty much get the run of the place.
