This is today's word. Probably one which I don't like to use pretty often, I am actually easily persuaded to help, to do something for someone who has no desire / energy / skills / inpiration.

This extreme is also no good :)

This cartoon is great, right?

And to summarize :)



I used to have such a hard time saying "no" and people knew it too! For my own sake, I had to start using that dreaded work! ☺

@Laura - good that you managed to say No, I am still struggling at times!

Enjoyed the cartoons, Claudia! Sometimes we have to remember that we "can" say NO! :)

Love that last one.

@Becky - true, but hard to do :)
@Karen - great challenge and thank you for your comment!
@Tony - too kind :)

It's amazing how everyone participating in the A-Z Challenge comes up with something completely difference for each letter of the alphabet! It is really hard to learn to say 'no'. The cartoons were really cute.

great cartoons, and I am finally learning to say no myself!

I loved the cartoons, Claudia. I guess most of us have a hard time saying no. We all should practice using the word so that when we need it, we can say it.

I think I should sa NO more. It seems as though Jilda and I spend a great deal of time helping with the projects of others while ours languish.
Good post.

@This - you are right, this challenge has made its participants so creative. It is fun for me to read as well :)
@Jilda - no is very very hard, especially if you are someone like yourself who helps gladly!
@Queen - the practice hint is a good one!
@Rick - yes but that makes your both great people!

great cartoons for no

Ha, ha! Great cartoons! It is super difficult to say no, but I'm learning fast :) Don't forget to let me know when you're in Paris... :)

@Baby girl - thank you :)
@Gawgus - well it's all set, 13 to 15 of May 2011, cannot wait :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
