General Snipbits

b3General Snip-bits is a section that is about writing, and writing related subjects. Eventually, I hope to populate it with a range of subjects that will be of interest to anyone who loves the written word.

Currently there are only three categories which include: Interesting Articles, Date with Destiny and I Quote.  They are explained in more detail on their relative pages. If any members have any suggestions for new categories in this section, I will be only to pleased to receive them.

This will take time (excuse the pun).

dwdpng'Date with destiny' is a calendar of dates and events, with an on-line hyperlink to a website covering the subject. I have covered every day between Jan 1st--dec 31st with at least one important event, so there should be something for anyone trying to write fillers or short articles. If members would like to supply dates with relevant hyperlinks, I'll be extremely grateful for the details.

 

intartWith Interesting articles, I hope to touch on a wide range of topics that specifically deal with writing issues.  If members feel you can contribute, or would like to submit an article on a particular interest you may have, submit it and after review, It may well appear as an article here. Currently there are six articles appearing here, I hope soon there will be more.

decpic

December was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar until a monthless winter period was divided between January and February. It gets its name from the Latin word "decem" which means ten.  However, when the Romans added January and February to the calendar, it became the twelfth month. The name remained the same.

AprilThe Romans gave this month the Latin name Aprilis but the derivation of this name is uncertain. The traditional etymology is from the verb aperire, "to open", in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to "open". Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to the goddess Venus, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her month Aphrilis, from her equivalent Greek goddess name Aphrodite (Aphros), or from the Etruscan name Apru.

General Snipbits - Date with Destiny

julypicJuly is the seventh month of the year (between June and August) in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with the length of 31 days.

It was named by the Roman Senate in honor of the Roman general, Julius Caesar, it being the month of his birth. Prior to that, it was called Quintilis.

It is, on average, the warmest month in most of the Northern hemisphere (where it is the second month of summer) and the coldest month in much of the Southern hemisphere (where it is the second month of winter). The second half of the year commences in July. In the Southern hemisphere, July is the seasonal equivalent of January in the Northern hemisphere.

Change comes from one of two sources. First, we may be driven to change out of desperation. The second source that drives us to make changes in our lives is inspiration. I hope that is where you find yourself now - about to become sufficiently inspired to make major changes in your life.

There's nothing much left to feel good about these days if you're British, but one of the few things where we all agree that we're still a world leader is our defining sense of humour.
