11 Writing Prompts

19th November 2018

I’m a little late (power-outage and everything), but if you’ve been following along here are some tuneful posts to match the time warp writing prompt from last week. Ritu’s dancing post Deb’s Sunday stills. Marian’s secret time-warp Carol’s Old Junk Shop Susanne’s Pleasant Harbor  And John’s post on Rocky Horror Picture Show. See, I knew there would be a few Rocky Horror references. But much to my husband’s chagrin, I’ve never seen the movie. Possible Hallowe’en on Christmas tradition? If…

It Was Nineteen Eighty-Something

9th November 2018

And so, I got two emails recently. One from a writer friend asking how NaNoWriMo is going, and one from another writer friend about a probably inaccessible writing retreat that promised to unleash my creativity. Well. I got news.

No Distance Over Dinner

26th October 2018

And so, this is literally the first chance I’ve had to sit down (pun may be intended) and write properly in two weeks. Or something. I should take a tape recorder on my travels. Isla has been off school for two weeks on sneaky Scottish school holidays that used to be for farming, and are now for nothing. But, we did stuff with those two weeks. There was a lot of riding shotgun for me. I love road trips. Listening…
