The Greatest Invention of All Time (and it’s not time)

Without the written word, humanity would not be able to communicate as it does.  Everything currently existing relies on the written word. The knowledge we have of the Ancient world relies on the written words and pictures of these ancient peoples.  We would not be able to understand the pyramids or the half humans’ statues…

I hope you’re satisfied with this post

Either you are or you aren’t. To be honest, I have no idea what to write about my Thanksgiving. The day went simply as follows: I stuffed myself with too much food, we took out the synthetic Christmas tree, watched “The Quick and The Dead“, “Grumpy Old Men“, “Grumpier Old Men“, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation“, and…

The Simply Complicated Obstacle Course

It was my job to set it up that day.  It had to be bigger and better than all the other ones because it was the last week.  They had to enjoy it; they had to laugh.  All I could come up with were wimpy ideas.  It was not going to go well and it…

Irony Much?

So I was bebopping around Facebook last night, completely bored. This would have been easily satiated had my mom not been hogging the XBOX playing Skyrim and had I been calm (as in not fidgity) enough to actually read a book. So I went to Facebook and started playing the silly Flash games. I think it was…

Fresh Formaldehyde Prompt

I’ve decided to start writing Writing Prompts for other bloggers.  I don’t always seem to have a bajillion personal writing prompts laying around.  So the challenge for me is to write at least a writing prompt a week for the rest of the year.  If you do use one of my prompts please link back to the…

Weird Food

I eat things weird. Notice the order. It says, “eat things weird,” not, “eat weird things”. I eat pizza, ice cream and waffles, nothing odd there. It is, rather, how I eat them. We’ve already covered that I don’t eat cake. No, I eat pizza backwards, from the crust to the tip, and turn my…

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…

Thanks, Sickness, and Words

I woke up feeling sick, and worn out. Then, my cat made it worse by making me feel crazy. Sir Pounce a Lot decided to meow me awake, then hide so that I couldn’t find the source. Through the sick blur I honestly thought I was dreaming, because when did we get a cat. It…

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! 🙂…

Moose on the Loose

I would have written this yesterday, but mainly because of bad internet, I am posting this now. It’s only in Alaska that your mom texts you, “Look out your bedroom window.” and when you run to look, a moose looks out from behind a rather large evergreen. This moose spent the majority of our morning…

Lack a Daisy

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…
