Thread: What Are You Doing?

    I wrote a story dedicated to the flight 752 plane tragedy (some close people died on that plane) for a writing competition, but it's not getting any votes.
    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!
    What use are wise and tempered words?

    Blaaah blah blaaaaaah..... I know, I have had absolutely no desire, or inspiration to be creative, to hang out with friends or do anything that requires me to take the time to make myself presentable... I know everything I should do, but just can't seem to care enough to actually do IT....
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    love leaves a memory no one can steal....

    Experimenting with baking a sourdough spice cake and it turned out that I had coconut cream instead of cream of coconut...so instead of turning the cake into a coconut cream poke cake I'm going to use condensed milk and some toasted almonds and coconut on top. Taught the daughter fingerloop braiding and she's obsessively turning grocery bags into square braided cord. The guys are watching Eureka on the computer (the rest of us sort of are, too) and peace has more or less descended.

    Waiting for the coffee to be ready and trying to start a short-short story for the Lean and Mean challenge. I have no ideas for this week's prompt, "Valentine's Day." The beginnings and endings are the hardest parts. Also the middles.

    And don't forget the titles too!

    Recently I've become better at writing a story beginning to the end, but in chunks that seem somewhat disjointed. In theory A should lead to B and B should lead to C. But A, B and C are the free spirited sort who seem to like to work individually, (not as members of a team) just on the piecemeal tasks they were allocated without taking any further accountability of the overall project. It can sometimes be frustrating to convince them that they must work together to create a better story.

    It has come to my attention that insufficient discussion has occurred around this burning issue!

    Having a relatively boring text-discussion with my adult child about how she needs to apply for medical insurance ASAP, a FB chat discussion with my SIL about my adult child taking potshots at my husband and I on social media, and wishing I could go collapse into bed instead of going out and working in the kitchen first.
