Funny Titles

I stepped outside the other day and almost turned around to go hide under my blankets as soon as I saw some white fluffy stuff falling onto the ground. No lambs crossed the Wisconsin border to have a sheering party in my backyard. Spring is supposed to be here but this is Minnesota and itContinue reading “Funny Titles”

Finding Humor

“Writing is rewriting.” David Sedaris How is your comedy week going? Still struggling or just not having a good week? The best thing to do when you’re stuck is to look at other references or examples. I went to one of my go-to resources and watched a MasterClass by David Sedaris and right away hisContinue reading “Finding Humor”

Comedy Week

After yesterday’s post and no nasty April Fools that I didn’t find funny myself, I think I’ll let the smiles roll in all week. Taking my own advice, I need to laugh more often. Working away and even with friends, I tend to lean toward the serious side. What better way to brighten someone else’sContinue reading “Comedy Week”

Animal Behavior

We touched on some fantasy ideas yesterday but what if our hero isn’t all human, or human at all? Those who writer about shifters and beasts that don’t exist understand the question. Themes like human and animals have existed in all native cultures. There was no separation between man, animal, and nature. The earth andContinue reading “Animal Behavior”

Miniature Fantasy

My world is still miniature this week as I spend time surrounded by my art supplies and needle tools. Trying to make things the size of a fingertip or smaller take more time that big sculptures. All this creating got me thinking about literary worlds. This week, Alice must have taken a drink of theContinue reading “Miniature Fantasy”

Dual Rowing

This week I’m rowing between two countries and I just rowed my writing boat back to France. My ears are surrounded by a new television series about a top real estate family in Paris. L’Agence has me hooked. I don’t know if seeing all the luxurious places for sale are a good thing because myContinue reading “Dual Rowing”


Remember, that writing prompt that I shared about a Fae Warrior world? Well, I feel torn between two worlds. My head is going back and forth between the Fae and the granddaughter in Paris. I feel like I’m in a literary tennis match. I don’t know which muse will win. One thing I’ve learned overContinue reading “Torn”

Cozy Places

My days that I took off for self-care and more naps returned me to an place that I found with my husband more than 5 years ago. Had it been that long? I love neighborhood places and one that has a bakery is at the top of my list. Tucked away in a corner ofContinue reading “Cozy Places”

Fae Warrior Writing

I went to bed with thoughts of Fae warriors and kingdoms. I stood on the dock with my character and looked across the narrow lake wonder if the flickering lights were my prince. My eyes went to the row boat with Cara. The other side wouldn’t take that long to reach. But I, like CaraContinue reading “Fae Warrior Writing”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Today, the Irish music will play and my crock pot will fill our home with the smell of salty meat and soft, yellow cabbage, and carrots. I might have to pick up a loaf of soda bread if there’s no time to make one but there will be more butter. I might not dye everythingContinue reading “Happy St. Patrick’s Day”

Irish Cooking Day

Inflation or not, I had to check the fridge again for my corned beef and cabbage. My mom’s only secret ingredient is adding lots of butter during holidays. I call it pats of love. That salty meat is getting lots of love this week and so is that cabbage. I’m one who thinks any kindContinue reading “Irish Cooking Day”

Review Week

The start of the week began with good new over the weekend. My book editing project with two other authors took flight and they are doing well. This month was filled with media appearances and local news talk shows. All of their hard work paid off, and they have the connections to make a biggerContinue reading “Review Week”
