Monday is Day #11 Sour

My desk is piled high with LED lights to fix a broken light box, pens, and clay and I turned my head away as I got ready for the week this morning.  The sluggish feeling of the morning isn’t very motivating, and I feel like it’s another Sour Monday.  A new start looks sweet but the taste is sour from late nights and running around all weekend.

Monday feels like the word prompt for Day #11 – Sour.  I can’t believe how quickly the weeks move when summer is over.  Is Christmas really a few months away?  I need to clean my self made “sweat shop” and get making some holiday pieces.

For some reason, the post office decides to misdeliver items I need to create mini bats, ghosts, and gingerbread men when I need them.  They never get the items that aren’t time sensitive wrong. 

That’s it!  I’m crushing the sour out of today and turning it into something sweeter.  I skipped a few days but I have my pen and ink drawing done for today.  My tests and trial continue with my new pens, and oops moments are still happening. This month is stretching my imagination and getting it into shape for NaNoWriMo next month.

My writing muse doesn’t like to be ignored.  Good thing I have my blog to get the itching out of my fingers.  If you’re participating this month on Preptober, you could use the prompts to work on new ways to think about the words on the prompt list.  I usually save my exercises for later, and then pull them out when I’m stuck on a sentence in my novel.

I’ll leave you to your Sour thoughts today!  My posts are Monday through Friday. Get Inking!

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
