Resources For Writers

There’s only a few days left before Preptober begins and fingers will be flying all over the world as writers prepare to join NaNoWriMo.  What are your goals for the month of November?  If you haven’t participated in either, then this is your introduction.  There’s no right approach or way to join in the nextContinue reading “Resources For Writers”

Creepy Cooking

The sun started setting and like any normal person I was taking photos with my new phone of a Minion Frankenstein and Bride.  Minion mummies and tiny pumpkins were stars of the lighting set.  My mind started to race with fantastical creatures and fairy tales.  Getting into the mood I turned on a cook showContinue reading “Creepy Cooking”

Friday Yuck

The weekend is here and I started my day with taking a rest to get over the seasonal bug that’s causing congestion and what I call the Yuck. I guess this is my body’s way of greeting a new season and all I can do is rest. Extra sleep boosted my lack of energy forContinue reading “Friday Yuck”

Sky Whale Wednesday

Did your fingers get their workout yesterday?  I hope you got in some practice.  Last night, I was watching my stream of random YouTube videos when I had the realization that I’m not the only one with a vast imagination.  I was watching some spooky videos before next month, when they showed something bursting inContinue reading “Sky Whale Wednesday”

One At a Time!

I don’t know about you but I was dragging at the beginning of the week and my mind didn’t want to focus on getting work done. All of the excitement over the weekend drained me and my attempt to catch up on my rest in one day wasn’t enough. I went for a walk inContinue reading “One At a Time!”

My Miniature World

All the creating for this past weekend’s outdoor event has increased my appetite for all things Halloween.  My miniature world turned to holiday set building.  Thank you to all those who stopped by my table.  What they didn’t see was a very late night packing up pieces, and a pile of those I couldn’t bringContinue reading “My Miniature World”

If Walls Could Talk

During the past few months I’ve been volunteering at the Art Shoppe in Minneapolis to help while someone was out on vacation. Getting to know and speak with other artists and authors is one of the highlights. My payment is in helping the creatives in the shop get paid for their work. There’s something satisfyingContinue reading “If Walls Could Talk”

Marshmallow Wednesday

I see more hoodies passing by as I walk the streets of Minnesota in the middle of the day.  The run to my car in the morning might mean I have to put on my fall coat but the one thing that’s not my favorite during the colder months is all the heavy layers.  IContinue reading “Marshmallow Wednesday”

The Write Focus

This weekend I started working on a new project that involves those diorama’s we created with shoe boxes in grade school. I spent some more time getting hot glue stuck to my skin to build more shelving and stands for all things that are miniaturized. Do you want to know what my highlight was? IContinue reading “The Write Focus”

Monday Debates

The middle of September means Halloween decorations can go up right?  Well, this was the big debate that happened during a zoom group call.  They were adamant that decorations shouldn’t go up before the 1st of October.  The group split into two.  Those who said the start of fall was symbolic and they were okayContinue reading “Monday Debates”

Saturday Alternate Worlds

This morning I woke up to my husband leaning over my face to tell me that he was going on a run.  He does this sometimes out of habit but also because I’ve told him to.  You know the mind of a writer.  To normal people waking up and finding the person you love missingContinue reading “Saturday Alternate Worlds”

Spaghetti, Meatballs, and Rainbows

Hump Day started the same as every day. A drive in the morning to drop off my husband at work. I always pass a row of trees near the road that hand over the end to shade the street like tall green umbrellas. For a few seconds, I felt like I was driving down aContinue reading “Spaghetti, Meatballs, and Rainbows”
