Vignette (3)

Note: I spy a lot of things while on the bus. It's a run-of-the-mill Wednesday. Nothing stands out especially clearly: sometimes the bus is packed to capacity, but right now it's not and we're zooming towards the station where people will transfer to trains. In the background, at every stop, I can hear the driver… Continue reading Vignette (3)

Idea Monkeys, Hard At Work

This was going to be a Faux Landlords. I blame the headache; I've had a monster headache today. I'm rather wrecking my blog schedule lately, but I did withdraw my most recent NaNoWriMo effort to begin work on it. Cleanup, new scenery, that kind of thing. I'm still indecisive as to what I should call… Continue reading Idea Monkeys, Hard At Work

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

The Wrimo

Last night, as I lay awake thanks to the humidity, I had an idea. Lately I've been thinking that I was accidentally, and quite unintentionally, writing a prequel to my murder-mystery NaNoWriMo. Only, something in the dark of midnight, or the recesses of my mind, inspired this new idea. (I blame the cold meds; I've… Continue reading The Wrimo

Tricksy Stuff

My brain does strange things, sometimes, and this is one such occasion. I've still not been able to make sense of this, so perhaps if I write about it, it will magically snap into some form of Logical Stuff. (Or, you know, it would make for an awesome scene in a novel) Personally, I'm betting… Continue reading Tricksy Stuff

wonderings

it's another of those days where there's nothing new to write, or say. the year is coming to a close and it's getting oddly more difficult to do an honest piece of creative writing, not just the same sort of prompts and challenges that are often pulled together. three more days of this: of not… Continue reading wonderings

Flotsam and Jetsam

Today, I began a poem. I stopped, and then restarted. I pulled together a stanza, which I liked, and then stopped it.  Tried again. Three stanzas, and I've decided I can't figure out where to bring it to next. Ironic, as it's answering the prompt decision. I decided to go for a different poem, and pulled a… Continue reading Flotsam and Jetsam

December Plans

It's almost December, you guys. This thought doesn't freak me out as much as I thought it would, so I'm making a bit of a plan regarding my NaNoWriMo. This time, I'm going to spend the next few months working on it. Every year prior to this one, I've written it and then left it… Continue reading December Plans

on quiet

ideas swirl through my being, not unlike snowflakes - now you see them. now you don't. and thoughts are a chaser collecting new ideas as they appear - best to record them. communication is blocked a new lack of methods and the inclination leaves again. (twist the words, bend them to your mind and compel… Continue reading on quiet

Letter to a Habit

For Day Eight of Writing 101: the letter. Dearest Creativity I have yet to decide if you're my best habit or the worst. You have this awesome habit of hanging around me, and I think you're the reason behind 99% of why I question things. What if is my favourite one, I'm sure you know.… Continue reading Letter to a Habit
