Hump Day Kick Start – Dance with Me Edition

November 14, 2018

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

This sings to me. I find it beautiful.

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who are they and why are they dancing? Is he a veteran learning to love life again? Has she fallen for him and is hoping she can break through his impenetrable walls? Is this part of therapy, only she is the patient needing it? Are they a troubled couple who despise one another but are realizing they need the other for more than just the reality television dancing show audition?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.


Link of the Week – Wildfire Survival

November 13, 2018

The videos of people trying to escape the deadly fires scorching through California and the destruction left in the wake are scary, horrific, and heartbreaking. As the wildfires continue to burn,  I thought today’s post might be helpful. It’s another excellent survival tip from The Art of Manliness – escaping a wildfire.

Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #40

November 7, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

My imagination skipped a happy beat to this prompt.

Who are the twins? Are they rich or poor? Good/evil? Famous/infamous? How is the yesterday twin different? Is the twin unique and sought after for some power? Do they hold the key to the world’s destruction? Salvation? Are the twins normal members of society, but one is a serial killer? Could the twin be destined to become a traveler of space and time or break through the realms of an alternate reality? Maybe they are the one person in the universe that can properly and neatly fold a fitted sheet.

Share your ideas and/or post your creations, even if it’s just a line or two. I’d love to hear them.

 


Link of the Week – Civics

November 6, 2018

It’s election day in America. What better way to start off election day with a great non-partisan video about the importance of civics. This segment is eye-opening and totally worth the watch. I’m willing to debate how we are in dire need to bring civics classes back to our schools for the health of our democracy.

If you haven’t already cast your ballots during the early voting period, go out and vote today. Not voting hands over your power, your voice to someone else.

Vote. It is a right and a privilege.

“It’s up to us.”

Forget Daylight Savings. Here’s a handy dandy way of checking how much daylight is left. Great for those camping outdoors or for authors writing scenes involving characters on a quest or on the run. Think the kids will use this?

Hump Day Kick Start – Sickle Edition

October 24, 2018

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

More creepiness coming atcha. Let’s hope she’s not coming at ya. Who is she and what’s going on? Is she just yawning because it’s early morning and she’s on her way to do her chores in the corn fields? Maybe she led someone to this spot, someone she doesn’t like, or someone who has done an injustice to her. Is she possessed? Or is she evil through and through? Could she be the ghost of a murdered victim come to exact terror and revenge on the town who ostracized her in life?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.
