Writer Wednesday Round-Up: "Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes"

Writer Wednesday is a new Zoomers.ca feature where we issue a weekly open call on a particular theme or subject that our community of bloggers are welcomed to participate in.

If you're a blogger that's interested in getting a handle on your craft (or even connecting with an audience!) then this is definitely the challenge for you.


How Does It Work?

Every Friday, we issue the theme or subject via a blog post that will be featured in our Friday newsletter.


|Writer Wednesday Prompt #20 "Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes"


To participate, simply post a blog on that theme, but tag that post with "writer wednesday" (within quotes, all lowercase) before the following Wednesday at 12PM EST.

When Writer Wednesday hits, we then do the following:

  • Round-up all the participating entries in a entry such as this.
  • Feature all the participating entries in our Friday newsletter that goes directly to our over 12,000 members.
  • Feature all the participating entries via our Twitter with the popular#writerwednesday hashtag.
  • Select our personal favourite that will be featured to the over 13,000 members in our Zoomers on Facebook community.


In the latest edition of this feature, we put a call out for pieces that explored "Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes."


Here are the entries that took us up on our "Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes" writing challenge:



As I watched the years pass the chain stores started moving in and slowly replaced the Mom and Pop stores. I saw one after one disappear and so did the personal service. It was soon replaced by people working minimum wage and some with attitudes not conducive to dealing with prospective buyers. Retail evolution continued with shopping centres and the big box stores arrived on the scene and cutting costs were put over personal service.



Changes were happening. The  game of Survivor had started. The bidding was already closed and the first few tricks had been taken. I wasn't even at the table. I didn't even know there was a game.

Now, my own grandfather, the “Rascal of the New Family”, as titled by my great-grandfather, for whatever reason, lost to the family by lips of silence and the fogs of time, decided to run off from his own family and England and moved to the States, The United States of America, what we now call, “USA”.


 

Thanks to  Linda, Jason and Steve for all their hard work! Please support our writers' original works by visiting their individual blogs as well as leaving comments.

Stay tuned this Friday for the next theme!
