Food and Life

Okay, I'm employing Wildcard Monday again. I'm sure this was supposed to be Etsy Monday, but also it was a public holiday. Threw my schedule out of whack, not to mention the hour I spent writing fan-fiction. So, daily prompt it is. I love food, or at least the consuming thereof. I don't know I'd go so… Continue reading Food and Life

Bragging Rights

I seem to be doing a lot of Daily Prompts lately. In any event, I'm writing myself a pass for it: I've got a bad wristache. Don't know how or why but it's stopping the pen-to-paper I employ with poetry. I'd like to be ambidextrous, but my left-hand writing looks like the writing of a… Continue reading Bragging Rights

life: a dialogue

Alfred carefully navigated the last two steps, bracing himself on the railing of the staircase. He'd worked here nineteen years now and still never learned to trust the steps - they were too smooth, too even. He preferred to feel rough brick under his shoes, but that didn't fit the aesthetic of the gallery. Before… Continue reading life: a dialogue

Monday, Monday

It's occurred to me that for all that I've been planning out short stories, I haven't done the writing. Yet. Luckily, the ideas have tapered off a bit, affording me a little more time to breathe and work on them more. I have seven pages on the "One Note" app thing, planning a total of almost… Continue reading Monday, Monday

Monday Magics

So... today we were let loose on the phones. It was cool. I got a tricky sort of question right off the bat and spent the morning feeling all woebegone and, you know, curling up in a corner. Well, not quite, but that was the general idea. And then, this is the weird thing, I got… Continue reading Monday Magics

Word Crush Wednesday: M. C. Escher

This week I've been considering chaos. It's everywhere: mentally (some nights I have to really shut down the hard drive of my mind, just to shut off the thoughts that run wild), physically (hello 5pm motorway commute) and... well, anywhere else you might like to think of. I keep scribing ideas to an app on… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: M. C. Escher

The Muse

I will tell you now, I don't generally do photo challenges. I don't know why - I don't have any special disdain of photos. I suppose it's because I look at things with a writer's eye, not a photographer's eye. When I see something, I find myself composing a description, not a composition. However, I… Continue reading The Muse

Word Crush Wednesday: Ralph Waldo Emerson

I almost went with a themed quote - a thing I do sometimes, relating the Quote O' The Week to a current life event. You know, going for a job interview, or making no progress with a job, or maybe linking the quote to my mood. Then I considered a really random quote, and then I… Continue reading Word Crush Wednesday: Ralph Waldo Emerson
