5 Reasons Why You Should Keep Whining: published on Splickety Magazine’s Lightning Blog

My first article on Splickety Magazine's Lightning Blog


I am  excited to announce I am a contributing writer for Splickety Magazine’s newly launched Lightning Blog. I even signed a contract, so it’s official.

Splickety Magazine describes what they are all about: “If you like to read but don’t have time, try Splickety. You can enjoy our stories, always 1,000 words or less, and get your fiction fix without the time commitment of a novel.”

So, if you have time check out Splickety Magazine after you read my article.


5 Reasons Why You Should Keep Whining

You are whining when you utter a low, usually nasal, complaining cry or sound, as from uneasiness, discontent or peevishness. The word whine is on page 1627 of The Random House Dictionary of the English Language.

You can read the rest of my article here.  And please, no whining. I will not post the rest of the article on ipaintiwrite. You really do have to go to the Lightning Blog to read the rest of my article.

    My husband would probably say I’m a whiner, but he doesn’t know half of the things I keep in my head. I will try to do better and not whine (where anyone can hear me). 🙂

    Enjoyed the article. And congrats! Today I’m whining because they cancelled school and we have no more built in snow days. More days in June. Wasn’t expecting that. We got a coating of freezing rain. Going to enjoy the day!

    • Hello Deb. Thank you! I hope you have fun today inside your nice warm home.
