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
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
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

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. Viruses, immortality, end of the world shit.... Yep, all the good stuff. Which brings me to this weeks scenario. … Continue reading Saturday’s Daily
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
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. Didn’t know what else to do with it…
So now its that time, kiddos. Time to meet your inner child and check your inhibitions at the door. I'll give you two options and you can choose whichever one tickles your funny bone. But whatever you decide, I want to hear about it. TRUTH: Have you ever had the giggles in an inappropriate place?? … Continue reading Thursday’s Daily

Apparently I'm on a dystopian kick. Last night I finally watched Divergent, which I have been putting off since it came out. Don't get me wrong, the premise sounded awesome and it looked like a good movie, however I just don't like Shailene Woodley very much. .... That being said, I'm glad I did watch … Continue reading Movies… schmoovies….
Music is my favorite form of inspiration. It literally is a soundtrack to our lives. Personally, every song carries a different meaning, a different interpretation of a single moment or series of moments that will forever define us. And it's very interesting to see just how many viewpoints the same melody can provide. So I'll … Continue reading Tuesday’s Daily: Roads
Today is the first day of a 365 page blank book.... write a good one.
Something raced out into the road, a massive blur of blood on white fur. Panic spiked through Aura, its affect deafening, and she floored the brakes. For a split second the only sound she heard was her own heartbeat slamming its way out of her chest and then everything exploded all at once. Her bumper … Continue reading “The Accident”
So, as it rolls into Fall, the screen has literally become a part of me. Whether its the smart TV, the PS3 3DTV, the computer or the Kindle, I have either Xfinity, Hulu, Amazon, Netflix or Vudu running one or when I'm feeling super chipper, sometimes all streaming at once.... If I was stranded on … Continue reading You killed MEEP! you bastards ….
Just so you know, I haven't completely fallen off the face of the planet, but I have been hiding in the shadows. I've been in a major funk for some time now and have been trying to get out of it, although nothing seems to be working. I haven't felt like reading, writing, crafting... pretty … Continue reading Back from the Dead
