Up At Midnight

Ever since I was little, I wondered if I belonged to a life in a bigger city – like New York because it’s the city that never sleeps. Or, I just read and watched too many vampire themed stories. I imagine waking up in the middle of the night, throwing on a jacket or sweaterContinue reading “Up At Midnight”

Walk in the Rain

This week Minneapolis turned into a little Seattle with drizzling, wet, rainy days. Something in the air changed as the hot air was pushed down into the wet earth, and it was as if my body sensed this subtle shift. My eyes closed as I walked down the street in my orange umbrella and IContinue reading “Walk in the Rain”

Making Movie Night Productive

Last night was Turkish movie night, and I found a new series called Love 101 where delinquent students are one step away from being kicked out of school. One vote keeps the head principal from kicking them out and they team up come up with a plan to keep that one vote at the school.Continue reading “Making Movie Night Productive”

The Night Muses

My excitement about the new project made for a restless night. As soon as I laid my head down, more and more ideas for books filled my mind until I got out of bed and make the trip down the hallway to my writing writing desk. My muses took over and wouldn’t let me sleepContinue reading “The Night Muses”

What is a UFO Today?

Last night was a first as a foodie. I watched a YouTube video of a restaurant chain in South Korea and they make burgers in the shape of UFO’s. There was something inside that growled and immediately wanted to try the spaceship looking burgers. Meat, tomato, lettuce, cheese and sauces are pressed down into aContinue reading “What is a UFO Today?”

Pen Pals

What would this week be without some Writer’s Block help? I remember working on a story that I was going to set in San Francisco about a decade ago and the storyline was falling flat. I had piles and piles of dialogue that lead absolutely nowhere. This was supposed to be about a romantic chase,Continue reading “Pen Pals”

Living the Life of a Writer

Yesterday, our golden week came to an end with my husbands birthday. Our birthdays are five days apart and we spend time celebrating together. This year our gifts spread out over several days and we made excuses for one more birthday dinner. I’ve come to one conclusion after this experience, we all need more thanContinue reading “Living the Life of a Writer”

Foodie Writing Prompt!

I woke up this morning and I’m feeling the after effects of my birthday dinner last night.  My belly was stuffed with charcoal grilled Galbi or marinated Korean short rib and Bulgogi Pajeon (meat package).  I went to sleep and dreamt of Korean side dishes that filled an entire table top.  Can you tell that Continue reading “Foodie Writing Prompt!”

ReWrite Day!

If you haven’t noticed by now, this week the theme is creativity. I introduced Austin Kleon who is known for blacking out words in Newspapers until they have a statement of words together that make us smile, and I shared Dan Brown’s source of inspiration for his thrillers – it’s all about the research. CreativityContinue reading “ReWrite Day!”

My favorite Recipes went into waiting on Amazon. Any foodies who followed my tasty finds and crockContinue reading “New Release In Waiting Again”
