The Dare

I’m early this week! Yippee! Thank you as always to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers!

Since “paranormal” seems to be winning in my NaNoWriMo poll (see here), I thought I’d better start practicing.

The Dare

Me afraid? Just because it’s Halloween, pitch-black, and the wind slides leaves like skeletal feet on concrete, and I’m alone in the haunted castle? Noooooo. Continue reading

September Wrap Up!

september wrap up

Ah, the beauty of having a planner. You write stuff down in it and then you look at it and see the stuff you should have done a couple of days earlier. Well, that’s me anyway. You’re probably better organized than I am—like most of the world. I strive to do better! But here it is, better late than never, the September Wrap Up! Continue reading

Love and Red Dust

Up until twenty to thirty minutes ago, this wasn’t happening. I haven’t made any secret about the fact that I just haven’t felt in tune with my writing, but maybe the Bahama Mama over dinner helped. 😉 Continue reading

Her Family of Cultures

This is the last Carrot Ranch flash fiction challenge until November 1. (Then it’s NaNoWriMo, yikes!)

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been struggling a bit with the writing and getting organized, however, that has been going on for around a year 😉 . Perhaps it has something to do with mars being in retrograde? (I’m kidding, it has everything to do with me and my own orbiting around the sun.)

So we were supposed to write about a parade of nations. Here is my effort. Continue reading

So many, many thanks as always to the multi-talented and wonderful, Rochelle, for providing us with Friday Fictioneers!

 

Evolution

I have made sure all elements of the evening are perfect, as Wyatt requested. Tastefully decorated tree. Choral music. Pomegranate martinis. Continue reading

Carrot Ranch 24 Hour Free Write The Long Drive Home

Sooooooo…….

Yep. Today was not a good day for me. We all have them, and we all push through because we have to.

I wrote something in the wee hours after seeing the prompt, edited a bit, went to sleep, and then this evening decided that I wouldn’t submit it for the free-write. The plot needs a bit more delicate handling, which I wasn’t feeling today.

I had a second idea wandering around in my head partly based on a childhood experience after a death in West Virginia, so I ran with it, so to speak. At 11:15 pm. Unfortunately that means I haven’t rummaged through the words the way I normally would and already picked up something that typically I would have re-written. As always, I consider this a learning experience.
