The middle of the week is here and I’ve spent the beginning of the week cleaning out old storage boxes. Yes, when I have a deadline or have a book to write my house gets clean like any other writer.

Things That Go Splat!
The week of Halloween is here! I have my fake flickering orange and black candelabras going next to my creepy black tree and haunted house. My mind is on vampire and werewolf stories. My mini brains in a jar and Frankenstein minions are on the shelf waiting for homes. Did you get in your partiesContinue reading “Things That Go Splat!”
Day #19 Loopy Day
LuAnn pushed the loop closed at the back of her ear, and listened for the quiet click of earring. Her eyes went to mirror and then the empty spot next to her. Sal always pulled these out of her jewelry box when he was going to take her out for the evening. Not just anyContinue reading “Day #19 Loopy Day”
Day #18 Word Smash!
We are off to another start after a busy weekend of creating. This weekend you heard the constant buzz of 3D printing in the background.

Today’s word goes along with the beginning if the weekend. In my mind, I picture everyone rushing to and from work with extra speed today because Friday is finally here.

The Leaves Are Falling
It’s the middle fo the week and I woke up in the dark this morning. Did my eyes open at the right time? Driving my husband to work there was only a hint of pink in the sky this morning and my body has gone into hibernation mode. The sluggish feeling of winter has takenContinue reading “The Leaves Are Falling”
Wednesday #13 Roof
The rough, tongues lay quietly underneath my flannel pajamas as I listened to the first birds beginning to wake from from their sleep. Slowly, the light touches my bare toes and I feel the slow creep of warmth over my body. A warm blanket. Silence in the city. No one else is awake, not evenContinue reading “Wednesday #13 Roof”
Tuesday #12 Stuck
I think today’s prompt word belongs to Pooh! The moment I looked at the word for Day #12 – stuck, I immediately pictured Pooh stuck in a hole trying to get his honey.

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”
Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!
Friday nights during the month of October are about baking pink glittered brains inside my clay oven until midnight. I fill witch’s cauldrons with sparkling green goo bubbles. What would a witch stall at a market place sell right now? Well, eyeball soup and brains on a silver platter. Everything on an inch scale orContinue reading “Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!”
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.
