Prompts Into Action

The north this weekend was filled with mild weather and sunshine to the delight of many who anticipate a storm right before they hit the roads for holiday travels. There’s numerous stories up here of families driving through ice and snow storms on the way to Grandma’s. Our white knuckle adventures on the way toContinue reading “Prompts Into Action”

The Holiday List

Thanksgiving is next week and I’m thinking I might want to be a the Black Friday crowds next week. Do I really want to join in the frenzy this year only to wait in extremely long lines? I think I might hit a few craft sales and boutique stores for some unique finds this weekend.Continue reading “The Holiday List”

Break Time!

Did you go out and howl at the moon last night? Are your word counts going up or staying flat? I think I need to lock my art supplies away during this month. It’s great to be creative but sometimes having other options are just like feeling the need to clean my home when I’mContinue reading “Break Time!”

Howl At The Moon

Tonight, I think I’m going to stand outside and howl at the moon. Maybe some neighborhood dogs will join me. I’m sorry but an annoyed neighbor would only make me do it again. And they do have furry friends. If they ask, because I don’t have a dog, I can say I was trying toContinue reading “Howl At The Moon”

The Day Job

Are you an aspiring writing who still has a day job? Well, you’re not alone. There are a lot of self published and contracted writers who have another job to support their lifestyles. Online platforms are making more of dreams come true but it’s still only a small percent of us. Besides, some of usContinue reading “The Day Job”

Winter Writing Blues

The colder temperatures up North have crept in over the past few weeks and my body feels it every year. Weather changes equal the yuck. I curled up in my blankets but not to enjoy the start of the Holiday season. It’s because my body goes into denial every time we move into a newContinue reading “Winter Writing Blues”

Day #3 of NaNoWriMo

All things need time. I have to say the break from my novel might have been a good thing. I left the piece feeling like I was paddling around in a circle. That circle was called the introduction. I wrote, and rewrote. Nothing sat right. Everything I ended the intro, I moved onto the nextContinue reading “Day #3 of NaNoWriMo”

November NaNoWriMo!

Last night, meant a special Halloween Dinner after making my husband run around to several different stores. There’s nothing like a kettle full of cheap beer steaming Atlantic crab. Good thing they didn’t know I purchased after suffering sticker shock of another box mislabeled sitting next to them. I wanted a romantic dinner but notContinue reading “November NaNoWriMo!”

Happy Halloween!

All things spooky, all day is finally here! Happy Halloween! This is also the last day of Ink and Preptober. The last word prompt of the month might make today interesting. Our word is Risk. Imagine all the kinds of things you could do with words, especially if you use method acting. However, as IContinue reading “Happy Halloween!”

Day #26 Word Prompt – Connect

The last week of Preptober and Inktober is coming to an end. Are all of your stories ready for NaNoWriMo? I feel like I’m cramming for a college final. I ask myself the same question over and over – where am I going with this story? The other part of my brain is negotiating withContinue reading “Day #26 Word Prompt – Connect”

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 butContinue reading “Monday is Day #11 Sour”

Friday is Day #8 – Watch

Last night meant late hours because my art muse decided to stay awake and create a miniature cauldron of green, glittery goo. I was supposed to be working on my next day of InkTober but my hands itched to make something in 3D. No matter the medium, at least these chilly months inspire creation. SubtitlesContinue reading “Friday is Day #8 – Watch”
