#WeeklyWritables ♥ Word Reveal

It’s time to reveal the word for this week’s #WeeklyWritables! I’m on a mission this week to keep my Thursday’s submission much shorter than I’ve been doing so far. Last week’s results took me deep into my old ‘story idea’ archives and churned out a much longer excerpt than I’d been planning for, but IContinue reading “#WeeklyWritables ♥ Word Reveal”

#WeeklyWritables ♥ Word Reveal

It’s time for week two of the new writing challenge, #WeeklyWritables, hosted by yours truly. Last week was a huge success for me, because I ended up with a bonus scene I’d never planned on writing for my new semi-psycho-taboo-thriller WIP (I have no clue what the genre really is, but that sums it up).Continue reading “#WeeklyWritables ♥ Word Reveal”

#WeeklyWritables ♥ Deal With the Devil

Deal With the Devil Twilight didn’t fall in the city. It crept up from the gutters, hovering just below the streetlamps long before it touched the sky. Perpetuated by the shadows of looming buildings hungry for everyone’s personal space. Dahlia had always dreamed of rising above them, to see the monster in its entirety. PreferablyContinue reading “#WeeklyWritables ♥ Deal With the Devil”

#WeeklyWritables Challenge

Good morning, writers, readers, bloggers & all around mischief makers! One of my biggest goals for 2019 is to get back into the habit of blogging more regularly, but after being on WP since 2013, finding fresh and original content can be quite difficult. I used to participate in the Daily Prompt hosted by WP,Continue reading “#WeeklyWritables Challenge”

To My Beloved Characters Redux+

To My Beloved Characters, Know this… I hold the pen.  I will have you offed.  It will hurt like hell.  It will be bloody and long.  It will incorporate all of your worst fears and darkest nightmares, because I know what they are.  I am the Overlord of your Darkside, you little twit, so stopContinue reading “To My Beloved Characters Redux+”

There’s No Going Back

Say it, like a mantra, and keep charging forward.  Everything is a choice.  Today, I’d like to talk about certain choices I’m determined to change, in order to continue reaching my goals.  I’ve crossed that line from dream to reality and there’s no going back; because I don’t want to.  But, there’s one thing IContinue reading “There’s No Going Back”

Midnight Melodrama

It’s 13 minutes past the Witching Hour and I feel the pull of something profound trying to claw its way out of me, but my lexicon was never destined to be that extraordinary.  I find joy in simplicity, the way most find passion in vomiting excessively flounced-up adjectives.  I’m too lazy to wade through theContinue reading “Midnight Melodrama”

What Did You Say?

Time to confess: tell us about a time when you used a word whose meaning you didn’t actually know (or were very wrong about, in retrospect). Alright, I confess that I have most definitely probably misused words a time or two.  However, I didn’t keep track of them over the years, so I can onlyContinue reading “What Did You Say?”

AWOOoooOO….

Isn’t that the exact thing Hermione Granger howled in order to save Harry from the wolf version of Professor Lupin?  I mean, honestly, his name should have given him away, not Snape’s insistence on learning about the dangerous creatures.  Anyway, can you tell that my kids and I have been having a Harry Potter movieContinue reading “AWOOoooOO….”

Wild Words Wednesday

I’m extraordinarily excited that it’s the 1st of October! Perhaps, because this month signifies the Fall Season far more nostalgically than September or November for me.  Or perhaps, because it is now officially one month until the release of The Zen Lounge.  Either way, I’m brimming with energy this morning. To add even more zestContinue reading “Wild Words Wednesday”
