WANTED: Challenges & Weekly Prompts

Searching for recommendations. Last year, I was part of a weekly challenge to write a story a week based on a weekly prompt. Although I didn't participate every week, I loved being a part of the small community of writers. I've searched for other weekly challenges and prompts, but it's hard to find the good … Continue reading WANTED: Challenges & Weekly Prompts

Thursday’s Daily

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

Tuesday’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

Friday’s Daily

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

Thursday’s Daily

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

Monday’s Daily

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

Saturday’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

Friday’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

Thursday’s Daily

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

Out of the Ashes

It was morning. The suns first rays peeked through the bedroom window, tinting the walls a pinkish orange. Her heart skipped a beat as she rolled over and saw him laying there. This was her favorite part of the day. That first fifteen minutes where everything was fresh and new and perfect.  She turned on her side and wrapped her arms … Continue reading Out of the Ashes

Daily Prompt 19: Heaven Scent

Tuesday's truly are my favorite day to post prompts because to me, music is one of the most inspirational tools and I love sharing the songs that have inspired me along the way. Especially if it opens the door to new artists that you've never heard of. The first time I heard this song was … Continue reading Daily Prompt 19: Heaven Scent

Daily Prompt 18: Super Sculpture

I have had a headache for days now. Not your normal just a little throbbing action, either. I mean like full blown make-me-wanna-throw-up blinding pain. I actually contemplated cutting my head off from the neck up. But then I realized it'd be awfully hard to watch Lost Girl without a head. So I come to … Continue reading Daily Prompt 18: Super Sculpture

Daily Prompt 16: Silly is as silly does

Most of us need to have fun once in a while, a little break from our mostly hum-drum boring lives. Something that leaves you feeling like a kid again, remembering what it was like when the most important part of your day was deciding what type of cereal to have for breakfast. So be a … Continue reading Daily Prompt 16: Silly is as silly does

Daily Prompt 14: Lindsey Stirling

One thing that many of you don't know about me is my obsession with period music and movies/tv. Although celtic, new age, old-world fantasy is my favorite, I love anything from the Elizabethan era to Colonial times. I had never heard of Lindsey Stirling until just recently, but when I did, I instantly fell in … Continue reading Daily Prompt 14: Lindsey Stirling

Daily Prompt 11: Friday

Sometimes it only takes a simple image to conjure a million ideas. The who, what, where, when and why's start dancing around like little sugar plums on Christmas morning. Write me! .... No, write ME! they call. This picture had my mind racing the second I saw it. There's nothing spectacular about it, nothing fancy. … Continue reading Daily Prompt 11: Friday

Daily Prompt 07: Monday

Okay, so I'm super cheesy when it comes to scary tales. I love, love, love them. Nothing is too unbelievable for me as long as it's super scary! For this week, I chose an Urban Legend that I'm sure many, if not all, of you have already heard of, but I, for one, cannot get … Continue reading Daily Prompt 07: Monday
