PYPT From October 14th Recap - Next PYPT is Thursday
Attendance was up this week. Seems more people are learning that Pimp Your Post Thursday has returned. PYPT is a live curation show held in Discord. It’s an opportunity to put your, or someone you like, work out in front of others.
PYPT Returns Thursday October 7th at Noon Eastern
Back in the fall of 2017 I started a voice chat on Discord that became known as Pimp Your Post Thursday or PYPT. It was and still is a show that encourages people to support each others posts. It grew in popularity at times running as long as four hours. I don’t expect to run that long.
Capt. Charles S. Rutherford and a WW1 Masterly Bluff
A character I had the privilege of meeting was Capt. Charles S. Rutherford VC, MC, MM. The alphabet soup after his name is; Victoria Cross, Military Cross and Military Medal. Known as Charlie, he was the only Canadian to have earned all three medals during WW1.

Ceremony For the Fallen in the Age of COVID-19
2020 hasn’t been kind to the world. For Canadians, the last few weeks has brought some additional twists to add to the impact of the pandemic. On April 19th most of the country woke to the news of a gunman on a twelve hour rampage in rural Nova Scotia. I wrote about that here.

Prompts Are Meant to Inspire Your Creativity to Create Great Work
Back in January when I started Prompt A Day I was just looking to provide some daily triggers for your writing. Do anything you like with it was the idea. For the most part the daily prompt variety was varied. They were meant to provide ideas.
Learning To Never Judge A Book or Person By Its Cover
For many years of my life I was involved in the local branch of national veterans organization. I joined at a time when there were still active WW1, WW2 and Korea War veterans. I learned a lot while meeting some interesting characters.
