Creating Writing Ideas for the New Year

As we come into a new year, it’s natural to want to come up with some new ideas to get a good start on the year. I’m no different. My biggest problem is that I have a million ideas and end up letting them overwhelm me and then nothing...

Never Run Out of Character Ideas Again

  As I mentioned in my previous post, I still do some writing on Medium.com. I love doing the 50-word and 100-word story prompts from Centina Pentina. One of the editors, J.A. Taylor, came up with an idea for this week’s Pentina (50-word prompt) that just blew me away....

Creating My Own Opportunities

  It’s been over a month since I last posted here but it doesn’t seem that long. The truth is that I’ve been writing the whole time and I’m figuring out how to create my own opportunities. I’ve created my own “storytelling” space with The Multi-Verse, and it’s led...

Accidentally Doing NaNoWriMo

So, you’ll notice that I missed last week’s issue of writing prompts and for that, I apologize. The truth is that I started writing a story and created a character that’s beginning to take over my soul. Her name is Cherish Montgomery. She’s a 50-something single woman who’s spent...

WEEKLY WRITING PROMPTS—OCTOBER 26TH-NOVEMBER 1ST This is it, boys and girls, Halloween week. That time of year when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest. I love Halloween. I dressed up for the holiday well into my teens, and then again after I had...

WEEKLY WRITING PROMPTS—OCTOBER 19-OCTOBER 25 Happy National Friends of Libraries Week. One of the things I’ve missed most since this pandemic hit, is being able to go to the library. I know there are hundreds of online libraries, but I miss being able to walk into our local library...

Weekly Writing Prompts Issue 3

WEEKLY WRITING PROMPTS-OCTOBER 12-OCTOBER 18 I should have had this done and posted for last week, but real-world stuff jumped in and took over. Hate it when that happens. You know what I mean? When you’ve got all the best intentions to get stuff done, but then STUFF happens...

My Idea of Success

I’ve always had a love for writing. As a kid, I used to make up stories about my life. I spent most of my time with my grandparents, so I didn’t have a lot of friends to play with. Because of this, I learned to create worlds and stories...

Writing Out of My Comfort Zone

So, I think I may have taken on a writing endeavor I’m NOT prepared to do. I’ve tried just about every form of writing I’ve ever seen. I’ve written several fiction pieces, from 50-word stories to 40,000-word novellas. I’ve written poetry, I’ve done a couple of e-books of writing...

Weekly Writing Prompts Issue 2

WEEKLY WRITING PROMPTS—SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 4 I love this time of year. The autumn leaves and cooler temperatures bring a sense of calm to my soul. I’m not sure why but wonder if it has to do with the fact that I was born around this time of year. I’m...
