I think I'm confused. You mentioned Ann's Jots and Titles next door, so I went to Ann's Grammar basics. Saw that she posted on March 4th, but didn't find any replys.

Am I missing something?


Oops, I forgot that she changed the title. Grammar Basics it is.

She was on vacation for a few weeks, and though she's back now, she's got a busier life than I do, and only checks once a day or so. I'm sure she'll respond soon!

Jan,
Yes this was meant you. Since day one, I have got you and Jan mixed up and just don't know why. Think it's the rhyming thing :)

And thank you for the info. I actually want to use fictitious names, just didn't know if it was legal in a nonfiction / true story book.

Anyone else having a problem getting their messages that there had been a new posting on this forum? I've missed out on quite a bit that way even though I have checked "Notify me when a reply is posted".

Just wondering.

In the first 5 minutes:
1. Refiner's Fire
2. hell
3. Tragedy by fire.
4. Ready. Aim. Fire.
5. Fire and Ice (The song)

Out of the box thought:

Menopause and feeling like your body is on fire. Chilled. Then, on fire.
hahaha

Oooh, I've been there! And definitely no on else on this thread thought of it. Good job!

I can't remember what the topic word was, but there was one week some time ago that seemed to prompt quite a few menopausal stories. But for 'fire'--definitely OOTB.

I can't believe I didn't think of that one.
May God's gentle grace be with you.

I believe it may have been the "Hot and Cold" topic. :roll:

It's no fun working with them people....I'm cold all the time, especially when working at night, with all the effects of a messed up body equilibrium. And they go and turn the thermostat down to 55! Brrr!!!! What are they thinking, seriously? Put some ice on your neck or something....

Thanks

Totally didn't know about the okay thing. I've always used ok and am now trying to break the habit. These classes are a blessing. I'm learning so much.

Sincerely,
Erica

my homework

Postby Harvestgal » Mon Mar 15, 2010 10:04 am

First list
1. on fire for God. Writing about someone who is on fire for God, experiencing the fire of God or how someone got on fire for God

2. Something on fire, house, building, car, etc.. and how they escaped with God's help or the distruction that it caused, etc...

3. Burn victums

4. Camp fires

5. Watching a fire or flame burn , (Fireplace, candle, camp fire, lighter, etc...)

Second list

1. Someone who has to fire a close friend or family member from their business.

2. Story of someone who works in a fire station.

3. Fire as in "Fire a gun." Example "Don't fire, I'll give you what you want." "I heard gun fire and my heart began to pound." Or war stories.

4. Eyes of fire (Example) "Jesus eyes as described in Revelations

5. Rage or anger. (Rage burned in his soul like a fire.)

6. Tested by the fire and came out pure as gold. Trials as the fires of life that purify and build character and makes us like gold. (Refiners Fire)

Wow, after reading everyone elses list, I realize really none of my ideas were out of the box really. Guess I need to work on it a little.
