“From the Sky”

Like a truly crazy person I stood outside in the storm, my face tilted up to the cascading water as it fell from the sky. I watched as lightning zig-zagged across the blackness of night, filling the space around me with an eery white glow. It was amazing. Amazing how something that was considered so … Continue reading “From the Sky”

Your character wakes up and doesn't know where they are or how they got there. I chose this scenario because there are so many directions you could go with it. I wanted to see how many versions the same situation could bring about. I say it all the time, but its amazing how different each … Continue reading Saturday’s Daily

This week I'm going to ask for something specific. I want 1,000 words by next Friday based on this image. I came across it last week and something about it inspired me, I'm hoping it will do the same to your creative sense. See ya when you pingback. 🙂

Unconditional Love

I was so mean to my dog, Snooki, a moment ago that it made me cry. Before you throw paint on me in fits of protest, understand that it was not abusive in any way, shape or form. I could never do that to her, she is quite literally the love of my life. A … Continue reading Unconditional Love

I finished "The Fall" last night. If you've seen it, you will understand where both the Truth and the Dare stem from this week. I won't spoil anything for those of you who may watch it, but I will say that I was baffled at the end of the series. Watching it really made me … Continue reading Thursday’s Daily

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hcj9fyx6DXI  A sign of a great trailer is when it makes you fall in love with the movie before you ever even see it. That's what happened to me back in 1998 when I saw the trailer to Ever After for the first time. I remember hearing the music and thinking, I have GOT to … Continue reading Tuesday’s Daily

I watched the Legend of Hercules last night which led me to the decision of going Greek this week. I love me some Greek mythology, its the only time I ever paid attention in Humanities.  Although, with so many offspring, family trees get confusing.... I'll start this week out with a simple legend. Ever heard … Continue reading Monday’s Daily

  Unfortunately, I've had little interaction from any of my prompts. Either I'm not reaching a wide enough audience or the prompts themselves are lacking inspiration. So, I'm asking for your feedback. Are the prompts unique? Are they not specific enough? Do they spark your interest or do they fall flat? Is there something I … Continue reading Sunday’s Daily

An accident shatters the protagonists life but at the same time brings a new friend/love (nurse, doctor, witness, counselor, lawyer, etc.) into it. Sometimes, the worst thing that can happen to you is the best thing that can happen for you. For every door that closes, another one opens. This week I want to know … Continue reading Saturday’s Daily

“Just Friends”

The moon stood low in the sky, an orange tint covering its surface. I stared at it, random horror movies playing in my head and I shivered. “Are you cold?” a voice asked from the darkness. “Yeah,” I said, and I wasn’t lying. The temperature had dropped in the last couple of days as the … Continue reading “Just Friends”

I've been plotting a story that involves many supernatural elements, including werewolves. Naturally that's what comes to mind when I see this picture. However, that's the beauty of imagination. Not everyone sees the same thing. Either way, I though this was a beautiful picture. The stark contrast of black and white, good and evil in … Continue reading Friday’s Daily

I had a dream last night

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUZ8ehWB2Mc I had a dream last night. I don't remember much, but I remember waking and this wave of sadness rushed over me. I dreamt of Patrick. He was a boy I knew when I was young. I first met him in fifth grade through Dari, my best friend at the time. They were cousins … Continue reading I had a dream last night

I know my prompts are not always easy. They are not defined by rules or narrowed down to a single situation. Sometimes, having so many options makes it that much more difficult to start. So I'll make it a bit simpler with this post. This week, I will focus on a truth of sorts. Who … Continue reading Thursday’s Daily

Tune-In Tuesday

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weWtRqoSUOI If anyone were to ask me who my favorite artist was, without a doubt my first response would be Tori Amos. She is the epitome of what a true artist is. Not only does she write her own lyrics, play her own instruments and sing her own songs, everything about her music is unique. … Continue reading Tune-In Tuesday

So, I was watching Pompeii last night and it gave me the idea for today's prompt. Not to mention added to my already growing obsession with Kit Harington (better known as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones). We all know the myth of Atlantis: a utopian city wiped out in a single night thanks to … Continue reading Monday’s Daily

Is it Saturday already? ... my, how time flies. I've been watching Helix on Netflix. Funny how I never gave it a chance before seeing as it's right up my alley as far as genre goes.

I don't know about you, but I love big city night life. I always thought that if I hadn't had kids at such a young age, I would have moved to New York and been part of the sleep all day, up all night atmosphere of the "new adult" experience. Now I'm 34 and there's … Continue reading Friday’s Daily

Meh. Didn’t know what else to do with it…

Noon tomorrow. Randall Newton abruptly ended the voice mail, his chubby fingers smashing the tiny button several times before it finally gave in. The last message played itself over and over in his mind like the echoes of a theme song you can't get out of your head. Noon tomorrow. Noon tomorrow. Noon tomorrow. No name, … Continue reading Meh.
