Scene From A Pic– Snarky Reader...

Scene From A Pic– Snarky Reader Style!

It’s time to post the results from the last Scene From a Pic! For those new to the Snark, I post a compelling photo and have the readers write. Everyone is welcome to join. Write one line, a scene… a plot. The point is to let your creativity lose and share whatever comes to mind […]

It’s Harrison’s Fault

It’s Harrison’s Fault

Woke late this morning to hear the cat crying at the back door off my bedroom. He’s somehow escaping before lock down and getting pissed about being left outside all night. It’s his own feline fault and I don’t feel sorry for him in the least.So, I’m treated to kitty glare. Cat glares are a […]

Guilty of Neglect

Guilty of Neglect

I’m not ignoring this blog. I do think about it in a sort of fly by “oh man, I need to work on that” kind of way. I’ve been hideously bad with writing for the 23rd, too. Got fiction on brain. Plus, I’m researching and the poor noggin is crammed. Believe it or not, back-to-school […]

Two Cool Movies

Friday Playing

Friday Playing

It’s Friday and I’ve been all over the place. Figured out I’m not going to be too productive today, so I’ll try again tonight. I have no social plans this evening which is a nice change since I can put my feet up and write on the laptop. Provided the laptop doesn’t die. Stupid thing […]

Dreaming Through the Noise

Dreaming Through the Noise

I’m booking through this book. Sorry, couldn’t resist. (g) I’m also tossing around another idea for a short sci-fi /horror piece. I was awakened by a possessed ceiling fan last night and then something crashed outside the window, followed by the most God-awful cat screeching you could imagine. A vicious mini war commenced in my […]

Scene From a Pic–Snarky Reader Style!

It’s a little late in coming, but here are the results from the last Scenes From a Pic challenge. For those new to the Snark, every couple of weeks, I post a compelling photo and ask my readers to write. It can be one line– the opening to a novel. It can be a plot […]

Country Music and Ankle Tattoos

Country Music and Ankle Tattoos

I made my husband stop so I could get out and take this picture. (g) We were on our way to Stratford, Oklahoma for their annual peach festival. This sign was in Purcell. Yeah, I have a dirty mind. So what? The festival seemed different. Of course, the last time I attended one, I was […]

One Tragic Love Myth

One Tragic Love Myth

“O deities of the underworld, to whom all we who live must come, hear my words, for they are true. I come not to spy out the secrets of Tartarus, nor to try my strength against Cerberus, the three-headed dog with snaky hair who guards the entrance. I come to seek my wife, whose opening […]

Drive By

Drive By

I’m in the zone. I’m submerged. I’m exhilarated. This is why I do this. In the middle of revamping my WIP and no, it’s not one of those revision slumps where you never move past the first few chapters. Been there. Done that. No. I have moved beyond. In fact, I wrote ahead and learned […]
