    Coffee Date

    If we were having coffee right now, I would be gagging.  Coffee is like the nastiest thing on the planet…   Hot chocolate on the other hand, now that is what is up! 🙂 I’m not a fan of coffee.  I don’t like the taste, the smell or anything else when it comes to coffee.  I’m the person who goes to the coffee shop and gets chocolate milk to go with my doughnuts!  (Dunkin Donuts for life!) But if we were having coffee (well, you might be having coffee), I would have a cup of hot chocolate.  We might be visiting about all sorts of things.  If we were really…

    The Window

    Today in writing 101, we had a choose of one of four picture to write about.  I picked, “The Window.”  This is with the main characters of my current sci-fi project.  Well, I will let you just get at it.  Let me know what you think!  🙂 Sam’s Dream Samantha slowly opened her eyes to a dark room. She slowly sat up and looked around. It wasn’t her quarter. The air was heavy and smelled stale. She lifted her left hand up and felt the space next to her. It was a wooden wall. She slid her hand across the grain, the roughness of it pricked her fingertips. She felt…

    Quote challenge

    I was nominated by Hope, from this blog post.  Thank you for the love! The rule is that you have to post one quote a day and tag three people in one post. That is what I will do!  🙂 But first, let me share a quote. ‘Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end: then stop.’ –Alice in Wonderland This one of my favorite quotes of all time.  It’s from Alice’s trail in Wonderland and it hits the nail on the head so well!  As writer’s (or just humans in general) we like to talk and tell others what has happened in…

    Writing 101 assignment.

    Alright, here is another Writing 101 assignment.  This time this is a ‘one word prompt’.  It boils down to you pick one word (here are the words: treasure, regret, home, love, uncertainty, secret.) and then write about it.  Sounds great?  Well, to me, it is! I like to time myself when I write.  15 minutes was the magic number this time.  (For my fiction writing I give myself 15 minutes and for my other writings I tend to give myself 10!)  I feel it helps me get the words out.  Not everyone likes that, but for me it works.  One top of that, this will be a sample ‘rough draft’…

    Wednesday Writing Piece Part Six

    Here is another installment of my writing pieces.  This is a definition essay.  I am defining that I’m not crazy, did you get that memo?   Enjoy! I’m not Crazy! I am not crazy. I am not someone who is running around without clothes on and screaming out the greatest song of the ‘70’s. I am not living in some sort of housing building and have to rock as I speak. I do not holler all night long for some dead relative who have been dead longer then I have been alive. I am not lithium or risperdal. I am not someone who listens to the voices in my head.…

    Wednesday Writing Piece part Five

    Okay, here is part five.  Again, another one about zombies.  But this one is just a comparing the different zombies.  🙂  So enjoy! It’s short and sweet. Differences with Zombies Zombies, like humans, come with similar and different attributes. No two zombies are the same (just like not two humans are the same.) Zombies do not have the same attributes that humans have and vice versa. You cannot match zombies on how big they are or how hunger they are and you cannot lump humans together by how they burp or how often they blink. They have to be strong characteristics among the zombies. All zombies are soulless walking beings.…

    Wednesday Writing Piece, Part Four

    Here’s another addition to my Wednesday’s writing pieces; and it’s another one about Zombies.  I really like zombies.  This one is a process essay.  It might be a little gory for a select few people, but over all, it shouldn’t make anyone loose their lunch. Enjoy! On a side note, it’s my mother’s birthday.  This should be fun.  Okay, now back to the writing!  How to Kill a Zombie Zombies are mindless beings that only have a goal of spreading whatever it has to other non-zombies. Zombies are not like humans. Killing a zombie deals with several other factors that the average person would not think about and wouldn’t know.…

    Wednesday Writing Piece Part Three…

    Here it is! This one is aimed more at a classification style essay. My others have been description essay, narration essay, and example essay, in that order… Can you name the pieces? haha. Well, enjoy this one! I Forgot my Excuse Excuses come in all shapes and sizes. There are the real excuses, the creative ones, the classic ones, the broken ones, and a small percent of excuses that are the truth (like I forgot or I didn’t do it) one. Teachers have learned a system of how these excuse are used, and how to figure out if it’s an actual excuse. Well, without more filler words, let’s hit this…

    Second Part – Wednesday’s Writing Piece

    Okay, here is the second part of my sharing of the old writings. This one is one of my favorites, so please enjoy it! Redhead’s in Public  The first time I realized that being a redhead counted as being a different, was when I was about five years old. I was at church with my grandfather. Every Sunday was church, no and’s, if’, or but’s about it, we had to go every Sunday, but this time it was different. I sat with him throughout the service. This was in fact a very different thing, since most children went to Sunday school. Most of the service went on without a problem.…
