Here’s my first shameless appeal for applause in today’s blog post: I have finished writing my fourth original song this year!
The name of the song is “Shameless Appeals for Applause” and I hope you find the chorus appealing:
These are shameless appeals for applause.
They are true and reliably cause
Clapping and oooohs and some awwwwws.
These shameless appeals for applause.

My shameless appeals for applause in that song include having a heart condition, being a single mother, and who I did NOT vote for in the 2016 USA presidential election.
This year, I’ve been making shameless appeals for applause with my original songs on the first Friday of every month at an acoustic Open Mic in Arlington, Massachusetts (see here for my shameless appeals for applause there in August). However, I still have some laryngitis, so I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to appeal for applause this coming Friday.
In the meantime, do you see any shameless appeals for applause in my photos from yesterday?
I shamelessly included one of those photos above because it evokes the name of another song I’m writing: “Triggers.”
Is including this patriotic song — also evoked by a photo above — another shameless appeal for applause?
Now I shall make another shameless appeal, this time for comments on this post.
Thanks to the Hingham Shipyard, to those who serve, to every one else who helped me create today’s shameless appeals for applause here at WordPress and — of course! — to YOU, who deserve applause for visiting my blog.
