Fandango’s Flashback Friday- Games
I cheated on Fandango’s Flashback Friday.
I went back to 2019 instead of 2020 because last February Covid-19 was in town and I don’t want to revisit that point in time right now. It’s just not far enough in the rearview mirror for me to want to reflect upon.
So I went back two years and found this.
It’s interesting, so I thought I would share it .
When I was learning to play board games and card games I always lost.
No matter how hard I tried, no matter how much effort I put into it

Dear Writers, Watch This!
I have learned is that stepping out of your genre can only add richness to your writer’s voice.
I don’t get poetry, I don’t understand poetry I never actually read or enjoyed it. But when I started getting comments from readers who read my short stories and thought they were poems, I said to myself ” maybe you should do this on purpose “
What I discovered was writing poems helped me learn to express the visual aspects of my stories and it helped me keep on track and focused when I wrote short stories or flash fiction.
So give this clip a view- of course I’d suggest watching the film as well. But what I wanted to share was the wealth of information you will find here.
