Thank You!

It’s happiness and pride for every writer to get grateful and skilled readers, to inspire them, to encourage them for their own oeuvre. Honestly, when we started our trilogy, we didn’t expect such amazing feedback.

We were overwhelmed when we got such a brilliant spin-off of the first installment Bastet, a heartwarming and intimate story called Triune-Heartby Madam Marmoset. The second part Sekhmet was awarded with a colorful and daring dilogy In the Corner with Maftet in Bubastisby Jonathan Noble.

There are mixed feelings when you watch how your characters move out of your control; it’s a delightful mix of envy and pride. You try to guess their next step, and fail gladly. You want to predict the next twist, but you want even more than that to be surprised. It’s like laying an egg again. You never know what’s going to be inside. Bliss!

We always publish our guest posts with special feelings. We celebrate every new ‘like’ and every warm comment. We’re both very proud and happy.

Thank you, dear community, dear Writers and Readers, friends! Thank you!

 

Yours ever,
Tati & Tony

Miss Misliked

of course, now I should put a sexy picture above
and earn an additional ‘like’ below

of course, now you should think, “WOW… a sexy chick!”
associate me with a provocative illustration
and make such a sought-after click

of course… but I’m a total ditz and always trip outside the mainstream
I don’t want to lie to you, my Reader
I’m run-of-the-mill. I’m tedious. I’m dim

so, let me step away from others’ enchanting masks and wiles
and just do what I can… try to seduce you with my candid poetry style

Hey-ho! Wake up, sidekicks! It’s again your restless Unbolt and another award. Well… this time I was nominated by Prakash B. Hegade (Oh, India! Oh, The Beatles Ashram! Oh, the Victory tower in the fort at Chittorgarh! I’ll visit you necessarily!) for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

I want to thank you, Prakash! Thank you very much for your nomination! And… the most important thing… you demonstrated to me a beautiful example of kindness and attentiveness for every one of your nominees!

“unbolt – A blog full of very different and unique kind of writings. They speak direct.”

Damn… I don’t know of a compliment that sounds better! OK. Three things that inspired me the most this week…

Followers, likers and commenters on my blog! 

Well, you know, that every award for me is a reason to throw a party and make a little noise. Firstly, my VIP-nominees. It looks like I have a strong intention to nominate you every time, guys! It’s not an obligation for you… just a joy for me.

And… Anthonie! Thank you for your incredible poem! It was a really, really inspiring post!

This time, I decided to find my nominees among the commenters here. So, my party moves to the basement… to the section of comments. Nobody is against this? Nobody is afraid of spider webs and old creaky stairs? Cool! Take your flashlights and let’s have fun! What is hidden down there?

 

Wow! #1 godsend! A Nominee ‘I know your secret’ THE WORLD ACCORDING TO RYLAND

That must be why you look so young. Bathory is clapping her hands somewhere out there.

Interesting? It’s only the start!

Aha, Michael! Caught Red-Handed!

 

#8. A Nominee ‘Dead can’t overshare’… Oops! Sorry, this blog was deleted. But it’s really one of my favorite comments!

I disagree and telling people you masturbate while typing is oversharing

R.I.P., idiot!

censored

##$%^&*()_{LKJUGHF#$%^4“*56g78V/*HBJNMK<L:)(*&^%$&&$@FDIDJ_^&*()_!!

Rules, rules… How boring… Hey! Where is the light?! Guys, give me a flashlight! I should read the rules for my nominees.

1. Thank the person who nominated you by linking his/her blog and display the award logo.
2. Nominate at least 15 other blogs (more or less). Link their blogs and inform them about the nomination.
3. Mention three things that inspired you the most this week (you can talk about last week’s inspiration too).

Ufff… What? Dawn… The party’s over… We must go home. But the show must go on!

P.S. I want to thank all of my dearest Writers and Readers! Thank you that you spend your precious time reading, liking, commenting… My blog would be dead without you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And Merry Christmas again for those who celebrate Christmas after the New year… like your devoted Unbolt. Please, be happy! Be silly and smart, weak and strong, lost and found… be different! But please, please – be happy!

I love you all,
Your Unbolt.

GUEST POST // To A Blog by Raycabiro

Dear Blog,
Are you a log
Within which I write a journal?

Or Blog,
Are you a log
Floating in a sea of troubles?

But Blog,
Are you a log
Upon which I rest my laurels?

Dear Blog,
You are a log
With whom I will not ever quarrel.

One Lovely Blog Award. A bit of magic and the Russian Roulette!

Hey there!

I’m sure you forgot about this awesome fact… Didn’t you? But I didn’t forget! Yes, I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award 10 days ago! I’m immensely grateful for Jacob Lascsak (Serpentine is Here) for this nomination. And I must earn this sweet vermilion heart on my main page. OK… Let’s go, guys!

7 facts or things about me.

Hmmm… The most difficult part probably. My blog is a place for my writings, not for my private… but OK! Rules are rules. I adopted this nomination and I must play it straight. Enjoy!

1) I was born on Yuri’s Night.
Of course, I wanted to become an astronaut (a cosmonaut) in my childhood.

2) I wear sneakers with the characters from Toy Story’.
Hey, Rex and Potato Head! How are you today, guys?

3) I jumped with a parachute.
4,200 meters (it’s approximately 14,000 feet) and 1 minute of free fall… AAAAAAAAAAA! It was devilishly awesome!

4) I might have drowned in my childhood because of my parents.
Hey! Never leave your little kids with an air mattress alone on the bank! I decided that I was a cool sea captain and that I could reach the horizon…

5) I don’t use smartphones.
I really don’t need it… I use my cell-phone only for calls and SMS. My good old Nokia 6300 copes with this just perfectly!

6) I’m an agnostic.
At least, in this particular point of space and time, I feel so.

7) I practice yoga.
Regularly for about 4 years… Yes, I can do a lot of interesting things with my body… but the most interesting is what I can do with my mind.

8) I don’t remember…
Heeeeey! Stop! You’ve got 7 things about me already!

15 bloggers I admire.

I admire… I admire… field of thorns, 21 Shades of Blue, Strings of Soulfulness, Spahr Plops, Northern Nevermore, MEN HEAL, raycabiro… lordwalt, my light angel.

My dearest writers and readers! I’m thankful that you find time for reading, liking and commenting on my blog! Guys, you know how I admire you! I hope you feel it too. All my nominations, that exist and don’t exist, I devote to you. But… sorry for my adventurism. I hope I’ll not offend you. Today I decided to save you precious time. I decided to save you precious time for reading, liking and commenting on my blog. Well… just kidding! Of course, I’m looking forward to your new posts, and I decided to keep your precious time for them!

And… I’ve decided to play Russian Roulette. I’ll put a secret word as a tag and press ‘Search’. The first 15 posts that I like… and their authors will be my candidates. OK… I’m ready to surprise and to be surprised. Fire!
