The Law According to ... Round 3

Shew, this has been great! So great, in fact, that I'm going to extend the deadline for three more days. The next and final Next Great Writing Project list will be published on Wednesday.

A big thank you to everyone who has really gone above and beyond with their list. These are not easy, I know. Just think, though, at least you are not me, the host, who decided early on to publish last. What's left? Hardly a thing. I think all of you got the whole wide world covered here, yet, each list is just as relevant to me as the rest. Amazing.

I'm so proud.

This blog will return to its typical three-posts-a-week format now that National Blog Posting Month is over. Of course, that doesn't mean it will just be three posts ... you never know what will happen around here that's blogable.

10 Rules to Live By entries -- Day three

Onedia from Onedia in the Ozarks writes 10 Rules that include some kissing ...

Marta from Writing in the Water gives 10 great rules about writing. All of us can always freshen up THOSE tools.

My girl Shannon at A Writer's Journey has outdone herself with 10 Rules filled with passion and purpose such as "Pay attention to the reoccurring themes in your life." She writes, "These are quiet lessons being whispered to us every day in the form of an overheard conversation, a book flipped open to the right page, a photo on a passing bus." And, that's just Number 1!

Jordan at MamaBlogga gives some very sensible tips in her 10 Rules.

My other girl, MPJ, has created a fabulous list of tools for your toolbox. She writes, "Not everyone needs the same toolbox (my wrench set may be metric and you may need English measure), and not everyone's tool box "has to" come from the same place (it can come from the hardware stores of religion, 12 Step, therapy, life experience, some other little shop down the street or a combination of all of them).

Brandy from The Mysterious Mrs. B Roth created a great list that stresses the importance of time outs -- for adults!

Danielle from The Bipolar Diaries has a great list posted. I especially dig her Number 6 ... about embracing routines.

Finally, RocketMom from Exploring New Worlds, who has quite the life experience to share, has written her list of 10 Rules as well.

Day Two entries:

Kelli at The Zen of Motherhood has written a fantastic little list that will make you laugh and cheer. Happy Belated Birthday, Mama Zen!

Not to be confused with ...

Momma Zen's Zen in Ten, which is a powerful list, simply stated. What I love about this list, and everything Karen writes, is that it's just the obvious that somehow, some way, gets lost in our cluttered thoughts.

Sarah over at That's Life v. 2.0 finished her A to Z project, and is now tackling numbers. That's right, she's written a post on the Number 10.

New to the party, I'm proud to introduce Moanna from Desperately Seeking Serenity and her 10 Rules, which I found to be extremely humorous and right on. I, personally, love Number 2. And, she's dedicated to world peace ... how can you not visit her blog?

And, from Day One

Shelli of Mama of Letters


And, for Gary's list go here.

Ohmygosh! I'm in heaven :)
I just left a comment about loving serendipity at A Room of Mama's Own after finding HER "Toolbox List" and then clicked on the link to you. I've been clicking and bookmarking for ten minutes (maybe longer) because I want to read all these lists and get acquainted with all these Bloggers! Reminds me of a post I left at Small Reflections" entitled "Oh my Lord, There's So Much to Do" when feeling a bit overwhelmed (yet enthusiastically excited) by the amazing potential of this "virtual" world.

If you haven't guessed by now, I'm fairly new to the Blogosphere. I started my first Blog on October 22nd and my second on the 23rd and have been "virtually" running ever since ... having the time of my life. But today may top the cake :)

Sorry to make this such a lengthy comment, but as a recent member of this "virtual" community, I'm often caught up in the "connectivity" aspects of Blogging, and wish I'd listened to my friends who have been telling me for years I belonged out here. It's nice to meet you. I've bookmarked your Blog (and about a dozen others). I look forward to getting acquainted better over time with all of you. So many Blogs, so little time :)
Hugs and blessings,

Thanks for including me! I think I sent you an email on Saturday, and then another on Sunday, but maybe they didn't get to you for some reason?

Anyway, thanks for the prompt to write. So many great lists have resulted, with lots of ingredients to stir up in the soup of my mind.
