PROMPTuesday #197: Absurdities and Oddities

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Man, I’d love to write regularly here again, read you all, and comment. I suppose I must realize that as a freelancer, I’ll never have enough time and that the word “free” is both evil and a Godsend.   So you know how some days you’re just done and sit in front of the TV […]

PROMPTuesday #196: Road Trippiness

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

  For today’s writing prompt, tell us about a road trip you’ve taken…in your head.   Where would you go? Who would you take with you? What would happen?   This is an awful lot like PROMPTuesday #151, but hallucinatorier. Or more imaginaryey.   For reference, this was a real road trip I took, but […]

The Road(s)

Monday, June 18th, 2012

  It’s a re-post! Weird, right?   Today I leave for Los Angeles to attend Creative Alliance, and it’s been a long time. A long time since I’ve made the drive alone from San Diego to Los Angeles and back again and vice versa. I’ve driven that stretch of road connecting two lives for more […]

Depression Firsthand

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

PROMPTuesday #195: One Word Again

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Every now and then I like to issue the one-word prompts because it leaves so much room to write what and how you feel most inspired. That’s what I’m going to do today. But first, I realize how behind I am in commenting on previous PROMPTs and most ghastly of all, doing my own. There’s […]

PROMPTuesday #194: This One Time At…

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

  It’s end-of-the-school-year time this week, and the girls are twirling around in a tizzy. Even I, usually not given to hysteria, feel the buzzing in the trees and backyard pools. Last night, from between tangled bedcovers Toots whispered, “I’m so excited,” right before her face collapsed into a pillow, wet with frantic post-happy-dance sweat. […]

And Now A Word From My Sponsor

Monday, June 4th, 2012

  Well, not really. It’s just that every now and then I like to give a nod to the several people or companies who’ve supported my site through ads and product reach-outs. Since this isn’t the kind of blog that runs sponsored posts (very often) or even acknowledges its advertisers on a regular basis (I […]

I love it, love it. With lots of love. The loving kind. I wrote an ode here at The Trend Tribe.
