This is for a writing prompt from TRDC. The prompt was graduation.  Everyone expected I would graduate with honors. Then I would go to university, get my degree, and become something important. Except things didn’t quite happen like that. At 16, you think you know far more than you actually do. The war that raged between my mother and I […]

It’s that time again. Indie Ink weekly writing challenge. This week my challenge came from myplaidpants. No that is not a euphemism. It’s an amazing blog that you must check out. Every week these challenges get harder and harder. This week was no exception. Entwined. That is my challenge so here goes. My challenge went to SUPERmaren. Yes she is […]

Normally on Saturdays, I feature an Indie author, but with the holiday on Monday I thought people might be off enjoying the weekend so Saturday Spotlight will be back next week. Since Monday is Memorial Day it seems like the perfect time to talk about how I betrayed my military family. At least according to them.  My grandfather served in […]

If this is your first time to travel across the pond with us, then you read about the guidelines HERE. Since wedding season is coming to a close here, it seems only appropriate to tell you about the weddings here. I had heard much about them, but my first real experience was last October when my second to youngest brother […]

Getting feedback/critiques of your work is always nerve wrecking, but it is essential if you want to grow as a writer. Some of the most common comments/feedback I get are that my writing is powerful, emotional, and that I am “brave” for having the “courage” to write about such things. The last part of that comment is always so shocking to […]

 My weekly Indie Ink writing challenge. This week’s challenge came from Tobie. The minute I read the challenge I knew exactly what direction I would go. Hopefully I did justice to the challenge which is “It’s the end of the world as we know it“. This week my challenge went to Mare. You’ll be able to read the reply once […]

This week’s Spotlight is a bit different. When I started Saturday Spotlight, my intention was and still is to feature Indie Authors. Mainly because they don’t have the marketing behind their books that published authors have, but I also want to be able to have a well rounded list of info for aspiring writers. I know there are many writers […]

For those who are new and maybe don’t know what this button is all about or for those who might know, I just wanted to remind everyone about remembering Jordan Moore Fields on May 22nd. I met his mother Jackie over at SheWrites. Jordan was tragically killed in a car accident in 2008. He was a student at Amherst and […]

I have talked about many things in these posts. Most likely things you would otherwise have never known. Things like why people walk goats and how they get fresh veggies delivered to the front door on a daily basis. I have talked very little about what it is like to actually just be. What it’s like to walk amongst the […]

Finally, after weeks away I am able to get back into my weekly writing prompts. I decided not to participate during April simply because the Challenge was overwhelming enough. Now that it has ended I am looking forward to participating in these prompts again. This week’s prompt was a bit different. Here it is:  When I was little, my grandmother […]
