Weekly Writing Spark~April 30th||

In a world where we are inundated with images and reports on the evil that people do, there are those unsung altruistic heroes who perform unselfish acts to help others. These people will do things without seeking praise and recognition often going as far as to sacrifice their own comfort and security.

Write about someone who is one of those rare beautiful souls. It can be someone who helps those in need, stands up for those who can’t, sacrifices their own safety to protect others or gives unconditional love to others without expecting reciprocity.

Reflect and write.


Throwing my hat into the ring…

I normally don’t enter contests, but at the prodding of a very talented friend, who I deeply respect ~I am going to throw my hat into the ring. If you like my photo and wouldn’t mind…

Quote of the Week~April 27th,

“You must write every single day of your life…You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads….may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” 

~Ray Bradbury


Weekly Writing Spark~April 23rd||

It is the clichéd “dark and stormy night” and you’re curled up on the sofa reading a “hair-raising” horror book. You come across a passage that describes the lights going out, shrouding the protagonist in darkness.  Just after reading this passage, the lights go out in your home, you are in the dark and all of a sudden, a strange face appears at the window!  Write a scene that describes what happens next! Get creative and have fun! 🙂
