General Snip-bits

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.

october

October is the tenth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with a length of 31 days.
  The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin "octo" meaning "eight") after January and February were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans.
  October is commonly associated with the season of autumn in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Northern hemisphere and vice versa. It is also very commonly associated with Halloween in the western world.

september

September (from Latin septem, "seven") was originally the seventh of ten months on the oldest known Roman calendar, with March (Latin Martius) the first month of the year until perhaps as late as 153 BC.
  After the calendar reform that added January and February to the beginning of the year, September became the ninth month, but retained its name. It had 29 days until the Julian reform, which added a day.
  September is the sixth month of the astrological calendar, which begins at the end of March/Mars/Aries.  September also marks the beginning of the ecclesiastical year in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

august1

This month was originally named Sextili in Latin, because it was the sixth month in the original ten-month Roman calendar under Romulus in 753 BC, when March was the first month of the year. 
  About 700 BC it became the eighth month when January and February were added to the year before March by King Numa Pompilius, who also gave it 29 days. Julius Caesar added two days when he created the Julian calendar in 45 BC giving it its modern length of 31 days.
In 8 BC it was renamed in honor of Augustus (despite common belief, he did not take a day from February).
  According to a Senatus consultum quoted by Macrobius, he chose this month because it was the time of several of his great triumphs, including the conquest of Egypt.
