Stellar and Lunar: 7 January

It's been another of those sneaky short weeks. My brain has been tricked into thinking it's the weekend now, and it's actually Thursday. Today, I gave into the temptation and began mapping out a new novel, despite having two drafts hanging around the computer and plans to cowrite a third with a friend. Still don't know… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: 7 January


bright eyes glow brighter in the soft light of candles. the night is a dream only brought to life by fire and flame, sleep and awakening. (with the flame, the glitter of fire in your eyes you are luminescent) there's starlight in your eyes.

Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 18

Ugh. Thursdays. They're so tantalizing, the way they promise a weekend but have none of the responsibility Friday does. Thursday is a slacker of a day. Today I was in-between outbound calls, pausing to ruminate on the things on which I ruminate. These things include, but are not limited to a) where my good copy of Edgar… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 18

Stellar and Lunar: 17

It's been a sleepy Thursday that's tried to be Friday and didn't quite manage. We're on the downward slope to the weekend, it's just a slow journey. The roundup: Last week I re-ran the challenge to allow responses. Jessica from masterselftherapy brought us a few thoughts about why she (spoiler alert) wouldn't want to go… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: 17

Stellar and Lunar: 16

It's a Thursday that feels like a Friday and wants to be a Saturday. This week on Stellar and Lunar... where did everyone go? Did people secretly contribute and I didn't know? Or was it that there were contributions and in the middle of my work-haze I completely forgot? That has been known to happen,… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: 16

Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 12

Hey all! I'm cutting things a bit close tonight - I think there aren't quite enough hours in the day. That, or I need a time-travel machine supercharged with everlasting Wi-Fi. This week on Stellar and Lunar... Yen from Little Calico's Journal brought another first with a book review. Full disclosure, I am not heavily… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 12

Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 9

Hello, everyone! I'm cutting it close tonight - spent too much time downloading eBooks, and I have the niggling feeling I've forgotten to do homework, but here is the week's roundup. (On the plus side, I'm now well versed in the fine art of customer services, and I do believe my training-group goes live on… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 9

Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 6

It does not feel like it's been six weeks since I started this up. A bit of housekeeping: I have decided that this will now be expanded to non-fiction as well. Initially, I started it as a creative writing thing, but from now on you guys can contribute whatever you please, fiction or not. The only… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar: Roundup 6

Stellar and Lunar Roundup: 5

Well, you guys, it's been over a month since I began this little event. We're still in early days, still laying the bricks and mortar and, uh... foundations? Do you lay foundations? Either way, I've been scrambling all over town like a madwoman for interviews. I ran up about six in the past eight days,… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar Roundup: 5

Stellar and Lunar Roundup: 4

Another Thursday, another prompt. It's been a busy week, one steeped in computer testing so various agencies can see if I'm a decent fit for the roles they're trying to fill. I'm going to keep this brief, because I have another interview tomorrow. This is all I do now, I go to interviews. So far nothing's come… Continue reading Stellar and Lunar Roundup: 4
