I’ve kept my promise!
I’ve written something new everyday in the last two weeks (minus my optional one day a week break) and I’ve started compiling them for editing. My series on Channillo is up and ready for content, I’m just waiting on a book cover which will be done soon. I’ve also been given the month my short story will be published on Channillo, November! In prep, I’ve added "Beverage Therapy" to goodreads. I may have danced in my chair at the small victory of having something listed that I’ve written.
Also new this week… yes, I’ve been busy, is the Imaginary Adventures Book Club! Join on goodreads to share a love of books, writing, and anything lit!
Last but not least is business cards. My wonderful friend Brandon Burt has helped me design some absolutely stunning business cards and I can’t wait to start handing them out. Once the design is finalized I’ll post that here too.
So many good things, I can’t even understand it all. I may have pinched myself a few times this week. Enjoy your weekend, stay safe, and read something good.
Muse: 642 Things
Prompt: Your mom has started online dating, what do you tell her?
“Brooklyn! Did you borrow my pearls?”
“Ew, never.” Mom has the worst taste in clothes.
“Have you seen them?”
“Brooklyn, get in here!”
I stand and march into her room and flop onto her bed. Makeup and jewelry float a few inches off the cream colored duvet and fall back down. “What?”
Mom turns and looks at me, her hands on her hips. “What do you think?”
“That this is pointless.”
“What? You’re going out looking for another guy like Dad and all you’re going to find are men who want in your pants.” I must have struck a nerve, Mom deflates, the twinkle gone from her eyes.
“Is that what you really think?”
She crosses the room and sits next to me on the bed.
“He’s gone Mom. Death won’t give him back, and no one can replace him.”
Be my muse and leave a prompt idea, feedback, or even just a word in the comments below or via twitter, fb, or email and I will use your suggestions for future Fiction Friday content. Together we can create something wonderful and I can’t wait!
