Divinity Games: Shirt-bound

Not exactly sure what chapter this is yet, but it must be made digital, because I’m not going to loose this scene.  I’ve been sitting with this in my Drafts for forever and decided I needed to air it out.  I’m even going to take the password off of it for a little while *gasp!*.  Warning, it does have some sexual themes in it that are not appropriate for anyone under the age of eighteen (or whatever age is appropriate for those things. Use your good judgment.) If you are offended by those types of things, I would suggest you not read this.  You have been warned. Read more of this post

Writing Prompts That Don’t Suck!

I decided to start a daily-ish writing prompt thingie-ma-jig again.  I was going to write for one month straight and post a list just like I did that other time I wanted to do a writing prompt challenge.  I even had a list of 29 prompts but couldn’t find one that really gripped me for the 30th.  I even used ones from my old list that I either didn’t do or could do a second time, but in a different way.  However, the space I allotted for the 29th prompt was sadly empty and I went on a search to find something satisfactory to fill it with, which led me to Writing Prompts That Don’t Suck. She hasn’t posted in a while, but I figure, I’ll go to her every day and if I don’t like what she posts when she ends up posting again, I’ll just choose from one of her previous ideas!  To date, there’s over 650 prompts, so I have more than enough to work with.  Besides, I can always go to my list if I really want something else! So, in that spirit, today’s post is “Write a story where the food at a swanky dinner party is or seems to be alive.” For this, I’m going to keep it under 250 words. Read more of this post

Printer Error

It’s prose, and not an actual story about my printer.  Just something I thought of while I was at work one day in December, and am just getting around to putting it down.

I don’t even own a printer… Read more of this post

A Blog a Day…

No, that’s not me going for a blog a day goal.  I don’t feel I have that much to say honestly, or at least not that much that should be shared.  I’m not consistent enough to do so anyway.  It’s more of an expression like “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but in this case it’s more like “a blog a day keeps the psychiatrist at bay.”

I don’t expect I’ll ever getting around to eating an apple every day, but I do enjoy one occasionally for a more healthy sweet treat.  Conversely, I don’t blog every day, but when I do I find it therapeutic.  At least I do when I have real life things to talk about that are causing me distress.

Jenny Trout’s Splendiferous Fifty Shades of Grey Recaps. Had to stop at “hates blondes more than Anita Blake does.” That was just fricken awesome! Really anyone that wants a totally snarkelicious review of the 50 shades books needs to check this lady out!

Rewarding Loyalty: 1NS

Well, I’m sure a lot of you thought I fell off the face of the Earth!  I took a gander at my site stats for last year and my cable car only needed 8 trips! I think I could count the number of posts on both my hands, which is sad.  So, I’m resolving to come back, with less bitching, and more rewards for my favorite people!  How, you may ask? Well with yummy writing!  You’ve been hearing me talking about being a writer, writing stories, getting characters right, being inspired by stuff to think up new plot ideas, but in the end, only a select few that know the password have gotten to actually see what I’ve done.  Last year, even they didn’t get any.  I’ve been a stingy little….

So, I want to give you all something to enjoy!  For those of you not familiar with my work though, you get one warning: it’s not for everyone.  If you’re not mature enough to say “penis” without giggling, for the love of God read my stuff! I mean, no! Don’t! Don’t read my stuff!  But seriously, I tend to swim in the gutter at times (all the time), so if you are squeamish about sex you may not want to read my stuff on principal. The rest of you freaks my feel welcome to read it and tear it down.

So, without further ado I give to you the first part of 1NS. Read more of this post

What do I see In You.

Meal ticket,money, sex, security.
They don’t make sense to me.
They don’t make my heart stop
Not like the sight of you.
I love you for your boyish grin,
For that cocky smile when you know you’ve won.
I love how you spontaneously light up at the sight of me
Fresh from bed, wearing sweats
I love how you need me most when you feel your worst,
How you teach me to be stronger when I’m not at my best.
I love how we tell each other
How much we don’t hate the other
With so much tenderness in our voices.
I love how you get mad when I buy make-up
Because you want me without any artifice.
I love how you notice when I meet a goal
And though you play it down in front of me
You show off what I do to others.
I love how you try to hide how tender you can be
But let me see a glimpse of it now and then
I love how you care so much
Though you don’t show it too well sometimes
I love what I see
I love what I see in you

Traumatic Cookies

It hit me today how traumatic just making cookies has become for me.  Not traumatic as in they remind me of abuse, but that the thought of making them makes me unbearably sad.  They shouldn’t.  I love to make cookies from scratch.  I use a modified version of my mother’s recipe that we worked out years ago over the phone so that I’d get them just the way I like them.  I’ve since been making this recipe so much that I could very nearly make it with my eyes closed.  I love having to guard the bowl from my little ankle biters, then sneaking a little cookie dough when they aren’t looking, knowing that when it was my mom, she had five kids, their friends, and my father to keep away from the cookie dough.  It’s no wonder that my recipe yields more cookies than hers said it would, I don’t more than half a dozen mouths to fight off.  I love pulling them out, letting them cool a little, then scarfing down three while they’re still warm and the chocolate still melted.  I love taking them to family get togethers and sharing them, coming home with nothing (don’t worry, I try to save enough dough at home to make another dozen).  But it’s taking them to share with family that’s caused my problem.

The Magic Spreadsheet and Open Office!

Okay,  just a warning, this post seems to be full of links.  Feel free to click ones that catch your fancy, or just ignore them as I try to clumsily explain them, either way.  Now I know what you are thinking, but I swear, I’ve been writing off and on, I’m just not using WordPress as my personal word processor anymore.  Used to be, it was the only ‘program’ that I could get both a spell check and a word count since I don’t have Microsoft word, nor do I have the money to buy the overpriced office suite it comes with.  No problems though, I found something better!  I will be posting some of my writing on here, eventually.  For the most part though, I’ve been keeping my work safely wrapped up on a flash drive and my computer.

Spam is getting creative…

Is it just me, or is the spam comments getting more creative? Call me simple, but I get a little bit of entertainment out of reading some of them to see what trick they try to use to make it seem like they’re legit. Two of the four I just blasted could have been, if it hadn’t been for them both being, just vague enough and posted on the same old post. One pretended to have a room mate that was always going on “about this topic” and that they would be sharing the post with them, the other pretended to have a colleague that was doing research on “the same topic” and they treated the spammer to dinner for showing them the post. Again, just vague enough they could go for any post I had, yet story-like enough to pique the writer in me. Besides all that, the grammar was practically flawless!  The post, by the way was Plumbob: the Making.  Anyone out there have an amusing spam story? Write about it in the comments!
