What one word describes you best?

  • During this particular season in my life- transient

What is set as the background on your computer?

  • The color black

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?

  • During several walking tours of the Frontier Culture Museum, I have been able to visit several countries: an English farm during the 1600s, a German farm during the 1700s, An Irish forge and farm during the 1700s, and an Igbo (Nigerian) family village during the 1700s.
  • Other than these…

Some Winsome Plans

The 2018 Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner is going to begin Wednesday, January 10th.

This is the Writer’s Community that I have attempted to host- for better or worse- this last year.

I thought that I would give each of my followers a chance to broaden their horizons with a few new writing experiences as well as give you a heads-up on the happenings of this community.

Here are some of the upcoming contests that have caught my attention for this new year.

Listed after them are some weekly writing opportunities for fun and fellowship with other writers.

I hope you will bless me with giving  Flash Fiction for the Practical Practitioner a try.

I hope to see you on Wednesday!

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

  • I am trying to catch-up on a few writing prompts.

List at least five of your favorite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)

  • Cinnamon
  • Paprika
  • Garlic
  • Nutmeg
  • Minced Onion

True Confessions: I do not know a great deal about favorite spices… If I did, I probably would not use so much salt?

What can you always be found with?

Phobias… An Allergy of the Mind?

Phobias… An Allergy of the Mind?

I love enjoy writing flash fiction. I enjoy the spontaneity of the experience and the instantaneous rush of exhilaration I can experience when the micro-fiction is completed.

So what’s teh problem?

I think I might be a tad scriptophobic…

… maybe more than a tad.

I seem to find fulfillment in the beginning processes of the thoughts a writing a true novel, but as soon as the time comes to begin the sot-and-do-it portion of the event, I find other things to do.

A new word: scripto-novella-phobic… the fear of beginning to tackle a true novel



Written for The Daily Post:  Allergic. I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My chosen topics are as follows:  (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.

Treats: Evil Incarnate or Heaven’s Motivator?



I am a person who can be easily motivated by small rewards.

Since I love the incentives, I use them to inspire me to do the things that I find not so intrinsically meaningful.

Many times, this drive for motivation can undermine any and all fitness regimens attempted.

Too much reward… very satisfying, but not very helpful to the waistline?
