Saturday Story Prompts

eBook prompts are just a click away!

1. Four yards of fabric costs her a month’s spending money, but she can feel the dress itching to be free.

2. Magic is a skill that anyone can learn, but that golden ticket is bought with years of tedious study and endless repetition and few are willing to pay the price.

3. The dragon is barn sour and refuses to leave the nests unless the rest of the wing is also in the air. She’s fixed the behavior in horses dozens of times, but she’s not quite sure how to fix a lizard.

4. Everyone has stories from The Day The Elevators Broke.

5. “I think I might have made a mistake…”
“You think?
“I was trying to be polite!”

Placeholder (cover) 300x400

The last place Simon expected to wake up was on an alien spaceship, but there are worse ways to start a NaNo novel…

This is the daily posting of my 2016 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) attempt at a novel. It’s a brand new world and new fictives and although I gave a shot at planning things (see: Chasing Falling Stars), it’s another pantsing effort. So MuseFics away! 🙂

Read at your own risk/amusement: There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing.

Kittenloaf (Sitting Cat) #002

Kittenloaf #001

Kittenloaf #001

Behold the kittenloaf!

None can resist the silent I-saw-you-look-over-here-now-you-must-get-up-and-pet-me meow and this magnet has got that in spades.

Whether napping on the kitchen fridge or soaking in a sunbeam at the office this little magnet will remind you that no matter how bad a day you’re having, that there are more important things in life.

Like petting cats.

…Or possibly feeding cats.

…But only the right kind of gushy food, because otherwise there will be Sniffs of Disapproval and then Royal Sulking.

Saturday Story Prompts [16.11.26]

Saturday Story Prompts

eBook collections galore!

1. In the caves you learn that death always follows light.

2. She sung the pack awake when the sun rose behind a layer of clouds and her sister led the call when the day broke on blue skies.

3. “Have you ever stopped to think about why we have these rules before you break them?” The elder wizard asked tiredly as they finished quenching the last of the fire demons.

4. Downtown was half office buildings and half industrial yards and for the first time in her life the phrase ‘wrong side of the train tracks’ actually made sense.

5. I have spent my life collecting other people’s memories. Photographs, keepsakes, stories plucked from the rubble and displayed in art galleries in the vain hope that I can keep the world from another war.

Corgiloaf (Sleeping Pembroke Welsh Corgi) #002

Corgiloaf #002 Tricolor (Black and Tan) Pembroke - Hanging

Corgiloaf #002 Tricolor (Black and Tan) Pembroke

Behold the corgiloaf! Nothing beats the cuteness of a sleeping corgi in full belly flop and this little guy is no exception. He’s deep in puppy dreams of quantum rabbits, so you can can safely sneak in a bit of paperwork without waking him up…

A handsome tri-color (or black and tan) Pembroke Welsh Corgi, this fella is just as much a working dog as his real-life counterparts. This little pup is a little over 4 inches long and 1 inch high with a 18mm diameter, 2mm thick round neodymium magnet to give him a little extra holding power.

He was painted in acrylics, namely Folkart Acrylics (2906 Coffee Latte) and Apple Barrel Acrylics (20503 White, and 20504 Black). He was finished with a high gloss sealer and you can see in the photos that he’s got a bit of a shine.
