Five Dream Books

I think I’ve mentioned my book, story, novel, (I’m undecided on what to call a longer fiction story that may turn into a series when it’s still in the editing process, oh well) multiple times before. Ironically, the unlabeled document of words that I’m working on went unmentioned here. That is likely because I wrote…

My Stories in Noun Descriptions

I wrote the following blog post a couple of months ago for my online writing class. Since then, I have worked harder on the first book mentioned and might be looking at self publishing companies soon. Who knows, maybe by this time next year I’ll be posting a link to the book? Fingers crossed! 🙂…

I know that I haven’t posted for the past few days, so when I saw today’s word is my daily word book today, it reminded me to post here. Hopefully, I will be less lackadaisical in my writing daily blog post. lackadaisical adj: lazy, apathetic, idle This word is found in the “Think Fast: A…

Weeks ago, trees were dying. Their leaves were fallen, dead, and ugly. Trees’ spindly fingers were eerie, knobby, and utterly pitiful. They looked like the fingers of someone about to die of very old age, unable to do anything, unable to care for themselves, begging for death to come. Now winter is here to stay….

Details

We are hurtling up the gravel road. Bits of rocks and dust are flying everywhere. I can hear the horses working hard climbing this hill. I am, thankfully, safe from the elements as I write through the bumps. Am I in a horse carriage or a car? Am I from the 1800s or the future?…

The Human Remote

Everyone has known at least one person that talks so much you wish you could box him or her up, slap a label on their box, ship them out, and if they were a toy they would (guaranteed) be returned because there was no ‘off’ button. At one point in my life I knew a…

The Sticky Surprise

Eyelids. Brightness. Eyelids. Light. Eyelids. Ceiling. Eyelids. Sigh. Ceiling. The light is on the ceiling. I blink again then I sit up. Katherine is awake. I don’t want to be awake. She woke me up way too early. Again. “Katherine. Do you have to wake up so terribly early?” “I don’t have to. I want…
