PROMPTuesday #149: Flash Fictionize

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

I wrote this awhile ago for a Fiction Workshop, and just discovered it again. It needs work, but that’s the thing about flash fiction: It’s a great starting point for fleshed out stories. A fire starter of sorts. So…Today’s PROMPTuesday is:   Write a piece of flash fiction (write 1,000 words or less, don’t edit) [...]

PROMPTuesday #143: Which is Really #17

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

  I sit here with a high-fevered little girl and to-do list stuffed to the gills…so I am re-running a PROMPTuesday from many moons ago. I hope you find it enjoyous.   Today’s PROMPTuesday is lifted from Naomi Epel’s The Observation Deck, and is:   Show, don’t tell! — a cardinal rule of writing — [...]

I’d heard great things about this guy from a vegan/Zen/meditative/very non-anxious friend of The Rocks’ who’d been going to [...]

Monkey On My Back: The Continuation

Monday, February 4th, 2008

I am strong, like a Powerpuff Girl. Except I’m not a kindergartner. But that’s open for debate.   Read Part I first here.   The anxiety: it’s overwhelmed me, made me laugh, ruined relationships, made friendships, and inspired my writing. It’s funny, really, that this is one of the first times that I’ve called it [...]

Monkey on My Back

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

I’m anxious. Not just now, but always. It’s an affliction, a way of life, a disease, a problem.   I’ve always been, well, spazzy. I am extremely reactive and one of those people who is very mood-absorbent. That’s what I call it anyway. It’s as if I absorb the energy or the mood of things, [...]
