If you play any type of mobile game, you’ve run into the problem of ads. Some are relatively unobtrusive, inserting themselves between levels. Some are totally invasive, disrupting the game flow on a regular basis and taking you out of the game completely. The ads that are my favourites are the ones that allow you to choose whether you’re going to watch them.
Like restless children on a car trip, we've reached the point of the pandemic when we're all asking "Are we there yet?"
Even though the same stories have been written over and over and over again, they still pop up in my stories feed, my social media, and even as banner ads.
In the interest of getting my writing out to a wider audience, I’ve been exploring some of the other options out there for writers. There are lots of places where we can put our writing, and there are benefits to all of them.
I can't remember the last time that I cooked over an open fire, at least not anything more than hot dogs or marshmallows. At one point, it was a regular occurrence, as much a part of my life as school, sleep, and cereal. Even though it's been years, the smell of an open fire still brings me back to those wonderful moments of family and community around an open fire.
