Wow! It's been Six Months Off The Grid. Just Wow.
So to begin,
"HAPPY AMPERSAND DAY!!!"
&, yes. It really is a thing I discovered, and it's today.
It was founded this day two years ago by Chaz DiSimone, known for his "Amperart" and, in my opinion, should be celebrated.
- The ampersand symbol is a combination E and T, et, the Latin word for and, hence it's meaning, And.
- The ampersand used to be the last character in the alphabet.
- Riding the alphabet wave, the ampersand used to be pronounced, "And Per Se," however, kids and adults alike would slur that phrase until the pronunciation became the "Ampersand" we know and love today.
- The plus sign is actually an ampersand?! (Who knew?)
Also, to commemorate this momentous day, Ampersand: E'haile and Talia is free until Thursday, September 14.
& Another Update, The next Installation of the Altered World Series,
Family Matters: An Altered World Novel,
will be available soon,
so keep an eye out for that.
I believe that is it for the updates.
"Happy Ampersand Day!"
Try using ampersands in all your writing. Add a little fun and replace your "ands" with "&s". Create your own unique Amperart! Tell everyone you know. (Man I'm a dork ^'^.) Either way, enjoy your day. I know I will mine.
