Write A Scene Today

Standing on the edge of the rocks, their meeting place, she couldn’t tell the stars in the night sky from the earth. Both were mirrors of each other. The light from the moon flickered like a faulty nightlight. Her warm breath pushed out one small cloud when it hit the cold fall night. The hairsContinue reading “Write A Scene Today”

Publishing and Progress Update

The mighty pen returns for the rest of the summer after my first book signing event of the year but the next few months will give my writing tools a different kind of exercise. I have my own publishing hat back on for my next journal, I’m helping three other authors publish their books. TwoContinue reading “Publishing and Progress Update”

The Pen and Paintbrush

This weekend’s show was a mix of new faces, family, and fellow creatives. I have to begin with a “Thank you!” To all those who stopped by the The Art Shoppe in Midtown Global Market this weekend! The waves of people visiting all happened so quickly. There was a flurry of showing new pieces andContinue reading “The Pen and Paintbrush”

Repeat Day!

I don’t know how well you did yesterday with your rhyming but my skills out loud need help. Talk about a brain freeze. This means that it’s time to do a repeat of yesterday’s exercise but in writing. I may need to do this on the weekend if this exercise doesn’t work right away. Today,Continue reading “Repeat Day!”


One of my former co-workers has a fellow author for a wife, and he’s helped her publish her series on Amazon.  She does quite well online and there is something that I admire about her children’s books – they rhyme.  Rhyming books that don’t end up like a bad television episode amaze me.  Limericks andContinue reading “Rhyming”

Night Owls!

The sun is going down behind the clouds this evening and much needed drizzle for our brown grass.  Our grass looks like it moved out West this year.  I can hear the stories churning, and I wonder how many will have droughts or weather related content inside. My post today is in the evening becauseContinue reading “Night Owls!”

Celebrating Independence

I hope everyone enjoyed their Independence yesterday!  I have to say that I’m thankful to live in a place where I can express myself through art and writing freely.  I’m grateful to have a roof over my head, and to never lack for food.  Being a foodie, maybe I indulge a little much.  There’s aContinue reading “Celebrating Independence”

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July Weekend! Many Minnesotans are headed to their cabin at the lake to enjoy a long weekend. A procession of boat parades, hours of activities on the water, and nights by the campfire will be in full force as we reach melting temperatures again. Those who decide to stay in the cityContinue reading “Happy 4th of July!”
