Link Of The Week- FaceBook Infringes On Publicity Rights

This is a link to an article about FB’s policy of using well known artists’ names in other people’s ads. Specifically as advertising keywords. This is something you should be aware of because Amazon has similar issues. So far, it looks like their stable of lawyers are keeping things at bay…….

Let me know what you think. I’m very curious!

Off Air and Sportin’ Mickey Ears

July 24, 2017

MuseTracks will be in Orlando this week for the Romance Writers of America’s national annual conference and will not be posting. Take cover, Mickey. No tellin’ what trouble we bring. We will be back to our regularly scheduled shenanigans next week. Probably with visual evidence of our fun.

Y’all be good!


Hump Day Kick Start – Padlock Edition

July 19, 2017

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

Wouldn’t it be fun to visit this bridge and put your own love lock on it? For those of you unaware, a love lock “is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, monument or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts’ names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.” (Wikipedia) The bridge in this picture is the Pont des Arts – a pedestrian bridge in Paris over the River Seine.

What a fun pic for a photo writing prompt. Who is the couple? Are they lovers as suspected? Did they just snap close their own lock? Did he propose? Could she have just announced she was pregnant? Or should we look closer? Are they parting ways forever due to circumstances beyond their control? Reuniting after believing they would never see each other again? Could one be a local and the other a tourist and they are having a whirlwind tryst? What if she were terminally ill or he was a serial killer or vice versa or both?

What does that kiss mean to you? Tell me your tale or caption the pic.

Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #14

July 12, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

So this begs the question, what flavor ice cream? Oh okay, I suppose we’d like to know what the crime is and what prompted her to want to commit such a deed? Is she desperate? What has made her that way? Money? Love? Betrayal? Revenge? Pregnancy? Good grief, wild hormones can make a woman do crazy things. Just sayin’.

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Coating the Deck Edition

July 5, 2017

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

Sorry but not sorry. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a writing prompt like this.

So tell me, who is he? What is he doing? What or who is he looking at? What is he thinking? Is he just the local surfer boy who dreams of riding a beast of a wave? Maybe his opponent in an upcoming surfing contest has him distracted with her beauty and her competitive taunts. Could he be deep undercover, infiltrating a drug-smuggling ring? Or an instructor who takes tourists to the best spots? What if he is impersonating a guide and fleecing customers, or worse. On the flip side, he could be the tourist, a writer for a travel magazine, and his guide is a feisty local who tempts him to give up his wandering ways. Maybe he just ran out of sex wax, hoping the cute surfer girl nearby would share hers.

You know how this works. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.


Happy 4th of July
