A new prompt: The little things in passing...

Years ago, I was in a bookstore and a particular title caught my eye. I never read the book, because the title alone was epiphanaceous enough to send me on a philosophic, spiritual jaunt, to get me thinking about things I'd never really thought about before. The book: BEHAVING AS IF THE GOD IN ALL... Sign in to see full entry.

Where I'm From

The scent of eucalyptus... the Campanile, it's urn-shaped balusters a head could get stuck between, we were warned... Aunt Shirley's little car that squawked on San Francisco hills... Driving across the country, the U-haul close on our tail... watching it, owning it... Picnicking in the shadow of... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm going to do this, though it may take some time...

A few days ago, Pat wrote a post about her writing group that offers one of the best prompts ever! So... here, I offer that prompt again: Go read Pat's piece, if you haven't seen it already, and then create in verse--open, free, whatever form you... Sign in to see full entry.

Setting just begging for a sci-fi futurist story... I am not sure what the headline writer here thinks is terrifying: this classy bunker seems well-secured in its cliff. I daresay any builder would determine the stability of any cliff or mountainside before attempting such a structure.... Sign in to see full entry.

Prompt: What is your best dog story?

From the time their ancestors' eyes glowed at the edge of our ancestors' fires, dogs have lived beside us. Jack London wrote stories of courageous dogs, James Thurber wrote of THE DOG THAT BIT PEOPLE. There are many stories of heroic dogs and of desperately needy dogs. What's your own dog story?

Prompt: Rain

I love the first blustery rain of autumn in the Pacific NW, after a long, dry, and sometimes hot summer. I love the sound of rain drumming on the roof above my bed, where I am tucked up warm and cozy, and maybe not alone. I love the earthy smell of the rain in Colorado that comes only occasionally,...

What do you think? Communicate, please!

Krisles got me thinking about this whole business of online communication. It seems that tapping on a keyboard is largely replacing actual speech between friends, family, and utter strangers. This calls for certain cautiousness, much as face-to-face interactions do. Online relationships are just as... Sign in to see full entry.

What is your favorite reference source?

I have a stack of books on costuming into which I have been dustily delving this morning, and to these hands-on references, I also go to the Internet for research. Where do you go when you need to find out, learn or remind yourself of something? Sign in to see full entry.

The Tyranny of Rules

It's been said that getting a Bachelor's Degree tells the world that you know the tools of your professional field. Having a Master's diploma tells the world that you know how to use them. A PhD says you know how to create your own. The rules of grammar, punctuation, etc. are the tools of the... Sign in to see full entry.
