Yes, this was me tonight. The top picture is when I was at my mother's house with the boys right after school. The second is from when we got home until bedtime. I have a headache. Homework is from the devil, designed to destroy a family's center and balance, I swear. And, while there are no excuses for my lack of patience, I am a human being, too. Yeesh.
Okay, so let's get down to business. Thank you to Joe, Veronica, David, LG, Cindy, Suzi and Lexa for commenting last week and being so supportive! You're the best!
I owe Suzi a little extra thanks, because she's willing to try out my crazy Build-A-Story idea. I'm hoping that, after I write her story, others will be willing to give it a try.
The way it works is a person chooses one from each category, and then I write a story around it. I wrote short stories (including the ones that were published) by picking random cards of a character type, a verb, and a setting, and it was really fun and challenging. I thought this might be a way to continue writing while I'm editing, and have some fun with everyone at the same time. I'll post here with the link when I put the stories up on Wattpad, if you want to see how they turn out.
If you'd like to play the game, comment your choices below and I'll start a list. I am hoping to do one a week, if they stay flash-fiction size. If the story grows beyond 1000 words, it might take a little longer. If no one else wants to play, then I'll just draw my own details, so there will still be stories written.
Rude library got the most mentions, so I'm naming it the winner for last week!
On to the new photos:
|Today I actually had to double-check "pick" because it just didn't look right.|
And notice, they mispelled easy. Do you think that was planned?
|Maybe that's actually the opening to the American Wizard School like Hogwarts.|
|Because I'm so gullible I don't usually like pranks, but this really does seem funny.|
My favorite is the goat with tennis balls on its head. Something about it just is funny.
Do you have a favorite?
