Stay creative and sane during a pandemic in 2020

There are so many ways we can be creative and sane during a pandemic in 2020. How? Let us count the ways… One of the first things I noticed about the stay-at-home lifestyle of the pandemic was – I liked it. I liked being at home. And I also liked not having to go out anywhere. At least for the first few weeks, staying at home seemed like an answer to prayer. I inventoried my pantry, cleaned out my fridge and my stove.

New series for you

New series for you

Today I found an old site, Dragon Writing Prompts. It hasn’t been updated in about a year or so, but there are some really good things on that site to jar the muse. It made me have an idea for a new blog series for you.

Writing questions-jump on board!

Good day mates! It’s a cool 70 degrees this morning, and I am in my writing chair. The problem is – wait for it – PLOT. I cannot for the life of me figure out this plot. It started out with a plan and a resolution, but once I began writing it, the darn thing went off in a strange direction and now I cannot wrangle it back into the fold. It’s so concrete. A mystery should be a mystery and anything else thrown in is just noise. Well, this one has a lot of noise. Mainly Shannon Wallace and
