Where do you get your story ideas? I’m not sure where mine flow from. Sometimes they come to me like magic. Sometimes it’s a powerhouse but then it falls like a boulder from the sky crashing into a million pieces and all of the effort put in is a large waste of time. Though evenContinue reading “Storyboarding”

Time to VSS

Ok some more of my cryptic attempts at elegant writing… 2/17/20 Heart shaped petals piled up as an altar. Exhalting and defining her, crying out her worth like newsies of a bygone era. In the beginning an amused detachment, in the end a #greed for them, their power unexplainable. When they were gone, she wasContinue reading “Time to VSS”

VSS and Chill?

I started doing the daily VSS as a way to have creative content for my feed. I’m not very good at SM. I’m not a natural sharer in the sense that I tell the things that go viral. And I don’t get the account train threads so I tend to avoid them. I don’t judgeContinue reading “VSS and Chill?”

It was a romance thriller of course. And I thought I was onto a good one but then I don’t know what happened.Continue reading “Thrill Me”

Looking Back

I’m dialing it in again again for creative writing Saturday and pulling an excerpt from Falling Slowly. This was one of my for older young adults, YA romances. It was the first book where I switched POV 1/2 through. For some reason the male voice kept having things to say so at a pivotal pointContinue reading “Looking Back”

Rough Draft

Ok, I’m neck deep rewriting and I’m trying to funnel my limited resources of talent so here’s a game instead of me trying to tap out my tired brain for new content. I had a different beginning to my new story but after talking with my editor and admitting the story needed a good dealContinue reading “Rough Draft”

With Love

Creative Writing Prompt: Write a love letter I won’t lie I may have done some research on this one. Flowery words are not my forte. I know pretty funny right? But I like how this came out. My Love, I wanted to write something of Springtime and roses and billowing moors but that all seemsContinue reading “With Love”

Hmmm Not So Fast

Writing Prompt: The year you were born This is not something I talk about though you probably have a vague idea. I’m older than some, younger than others, willing to admit the differential is quickly closing to one side. Kennedy was before me but then which Kennedy there are so many. I saw Madonna liveContinue reading “Hmmm Not So Fast”


Writing Prompt: write about someone who loves boysenberry jam This one came together easier than normal because I saw Forest Gump on Sunday.
