Summer Giraffe Call

My Summer 2016 “Giraffe” Prompt Call is open until 9 p.m. Eastern time tonight.

The theme today is “When the best answer is FIRE”

I will write a short flash fiction or the beginning of a story (approx 150-300 words) for the first twelve prompters who post their prompts within the next 24 hours.

I will start posting stories around 7:30 a.m. Eastern time and continue until I run out of prompters/until 9:30 p.m., and then pick up again tomorrow morning with whatever’s left.

Please stop in and leave a prompt or three!

 

A Week in Alder

It wasn’t a slow week, I can say that. It was just a slow week for posting.

Last Friday was all-errands-all-the-time, including over an hour at Lowe’s and a good deal of time at a few other stores. I mean, we got a lot done, but writing wasn’t part of it.

Then Saturday and Sunday were an awesome drive to Albany to visit our friends E.Mc. & Pivin – again, awesome, and again, very little writing.

Monday-Tuesday, I was working on a piece for submission. Wednesday I was editing & fretting about it, then submitting it. And a lot of this week has been planning Nanowrimo.

So if I’ve seemed quiet, in terms of blogging, I have been.

But this is what I posted this week:
