D is for Diary

Dudes and Dudettes!

I declare: your daily dose of diligence, dished out to de-stress, and destined to destroy your dampened spirits and downheartedness…

D'oh to doomsayers who declare us to be dotty, self-deluded dimwits. Dare I say, don't disregard us daring and dazzling dreamers!

Dang! Duty demands I gotta dash!

Ever wondered what books would say if they had the chance to express themselves/air their views?

Well, you are about to find out!

   All illustrations are by the talented Mary-An. Check out her website HERE


And now you get to play along! What do YOU think the diary wants to tell us? Post it in the comment section below. Have fun!

 At the end of the challenge, between 02nd and 05th of May, I'm going to announce my favourite "book comment" which will be the one that resonates with me the most!

A REMINDER: the IWSG site will have a corresponding post for each letter/day of the A to Z Challenge so do stop by.

On the Facebook page, a thread will be started for the "letter of the day" and we'd LOVE you to share your A to Z post links on the daily thread – this saves YOU time scrolling through links on the master A to Z sign-up list, especially since people post at different times… some MAY skip letters… dead links etc.

One last thing – don't forget to visit those who stop by your blog!

    Since the diary is crying and not having a good day, I'm guessed the diary to Dumped. (The D word is to fit your style.)

    I'll check out Mary-an's site now.

    Sorry about the typos in that last message. More like voice-os. I use voice recognition software, and it doesn't always recognize so well. 🙂  I meant "I'm guessing the diary got dumped."

    Diary says Devastated…:.-( between incomprehensible sobs. 

    I really like your D alliteration by the way! 

  4. Tasha on April 4, 2014 at 11:41 am

    Diary: You don't write in me for weeks and then you fill pages about him … him! You can do better.

    Okay, so it's a judgemental diary :). Loving your posts.

    The diary thinks its writer needs to get a dog.

  6. Sydney Aaliyah on April 4, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    I can come up with allterations unconciously, but can't create  a sentence on purpose. Quite the skill. haha

    Dearest Dallied with the Duenna and Did that cause a Drama. Dunked Dounghuts killed the Diet and Don't even start on the Double Whip Dairy Dame Delight. Dearest Did and Dialled for her Dinner. Diary entry was Dire and Distressing. I Don't Dare Digress when Dearest is this Depressed. It is Diabolical. Dinner arrived with Dave the Dough boy. Double mozzarella, Double everything. Didn't tip and Dave Drove off Disgusted. Dearest doubled a  Duvet, Dialled Ditzy Dramas and Dived onto the Divan to Drown her Distress. Everything will eventually even out tomorrow.

    I think the diary is going through its own motions of the "D day" as in D for Depressed or emotionally Devastated. 🙂 

  9. Robin on April 4, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    Why does she fill me with negativity and sadness? I am full of whine when I would rather be full of wine…. and roses…. and chocolate.

  10. Raquel on April 4, 2014 at 1:08 pm

    very cute and sad! poor diary!

    though I honestly cannot think of any cool caption. i've been wracking my brains… nope. not this time…

    it's so much fun to read everyone's contributions ;D

  11. Sherry Ellis on April 4, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    "The darn dam didn't do its duty and now I'm deluged in dampness!"

  12. Crystal Collier on April 4, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    I think that Diary is Depressed bacause the writer just Dumped their Dismal Day on its Disceveled pages. =) Yeah, that's the best I can do right now. Probably not getting enough sleep. Or cheese. OH MY GOODNESS! I just figured it out. No one fed the diary any cheese. Come on, people!

  13. Alex J. Cavanaugh on April 4, 2014 at 3:15 pm

    She gets all the action!

  14. Huntress on April 4, 2014 at 3:18 pm

    Definitely a distinctive dose of delight.

  15. Lexa Cain on April 4, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    Hysterical as always, Michelle!!

    DIary: "Why couldn't I have been bought by someone fun and exciting – like a circus performer or a pirate?"

  16. S. Katherine Anthony on April 4, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    Very cool intro, as usual!

    Diary: "I wish she'd let me experience it for myself. I love him too!"

  17. Michael Di Gesu on April 4, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    "Buck up you whiners! We are so sick of hearing about you angst! We can do with a bit of humor or positve attitude here!

  18. Hilary on April 4, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    Hi Michelle .. you've got some great answers here … Dear Diaries for ever – "Dear Diary .. ther's no point in crying for me … you are in a much worse depression than I am .. I think you need to dunk your drink and get on with drying off – so we can set to and drive some prose" ..

    Cheers Hilary

  19. joylene on April 4, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    Diary, dearest, you darling date cruiser, you! Drop your dribble and come away with me on a daring adventure to far off Dreamland. 

    Gads, Diary, sorry. I'm a dipstick for dialogue today. 

  20. Lara Lacombe on April 4, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    Awww, poor diary!

  21. C. Lee McKenzie on April 4, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    Diary says, "If you don't have something to write in me that's funny, don't write nothing at all. I'm drenched with your sorrow. Wring me out and let me dry in the sun for heaven sakes."

  22. Mary Aalgaard on April 4, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    Diary:  I'm trapped in a rainstorm of emotion.


  23. Hart Johnson on April 4, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    Diary says: whine whine whine. Will you stop with the angsty poetry already and draw some pictures of furry little animals?

  24. Anne on April 4, 2014 at 8:21 pm

    Doo-wah doo-wah!

    The delightful delinquents at The Panda Chronicles aDore your daring deeds! Damn if d-words dismay me by their dodges and ducking.  I must desist.

  25. Jocelyn Rish on April 4, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    If it's the diary of a preteen girl, its probably crying at the thought of one more entry about how much its owner loves the boys of One Direction and is truly conflicted about which one she loves the most. 

  26. Donna McNicol on April 5, 2014 at 12:45 am

    Your A-Z posts just crack me up. Great way to end my day…

    "Dear diary, please make this ridiculous A to Z vanish.  And dear diary, please remind me to stop writing about my fictional pretend human, Gary! "

    Nothing is sacred!  You have taken over my human's "IWSG" aka "I Was Seeking Gary" dedication page on Farcebook!  And it gets worse!  The letters are invading the Farcebook page!  

    Hey human, Michelle.  You are real funny and your alliteration is most impressive.  Keep that imagination going.  I look forward to you agreeing to becoming a co-host on "The Alphabark Challenge, 2014!  🙂

    Pawsitive wishes, 

    Penny the official host of the Alphabark Challenge, 2014! 

  28. Nancy LaRonda Johnson on April 5, 2014 at 1:19 am

    Dastardly Depressed. Definitely! 

  29. J.L. Campbell on April 5, 2014 at 2:38 am

    Geez! Any more secrets like that and I'm gonna cry me a river, says the diary.


  30. Medeia Sharif on April 5, 2014 at 4:00 am

    I'm so down. Write something happy already. 

  31. krystal jane on April 5, 2014 at 4:29 am

    Ha, ha! Perfect quote for a diary! ^_^ *hands diary a fluffy super absorbent tissue*

  32. Leslie Rose on April 5, 2014 at 5:19 am

    I think a weeping diary is one of the signs of the apocolypse.

  33. Rosie Amber on April 5, 2014 at 8:02 am

    A weeping diary… perhaps someone else has read the entress and laughed at them when they were private thoughts.

  34. LuAnn Braley on April 5, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    I think the diary is saying, "Dang!  My writer must be royally TICKED today.  The pen made scratches all the way though my pages!"

    Oh, dear, I’m deeply depressed and I don’t dare divulge the dastardly deed that downed me.

  36. Lynda Dietz on April 6, 2014 at 3:31 am

    Diary says: Either dump him or stop telling me about it!

  37. Julie K Pick on April 6, 2014 at 8:36 am

    This ditzy dame is dullsville. It's draining to describe her discombobulated dissertations on daily duties.

    Delightful "D" Michelle!

  38. Sonia Lal on April 7, 2014 at 11:37 pm

    They would probably complain of abuse!

  39. Beverly (@Bevimus) on April 11, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    Delightfully funny!
