Short on Inspiration

In response to The Seeker's Dungeon prompt. What inspires me? .... That is a more difficult question to answer than you'd think. On the one hand, the writer in me could answer that very easily and in one word. Everything. Everything inspires my writing. All that I see and smell and hear and touch. It's … Continue reading Short on Inspiration

Tune-In Tuesday

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBmIptM7JvA   I know its been awhile since I've posted at all let alone one of my prompts, but I've been in another of my occasional funks. It seems that the second everything evens out in my life, something happens to send me spiraling right back down again. This song is very fitting for my … Continue reading Tune-In Tuesday

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

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.

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

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 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

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

Tuesday’s Daily: Roads

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

Sing Me A Story – My Million Dollar Idea

An inkling of an idea came to me as I was tweaking my playlist last night. For me, music has always had a drastic impact on my emotions.

I remember the first time … Continue reading Sing Me A Story – My Million Dollar Idea

One thing that many of you don't know about me is my obsession with period music and movies/tv.
