Jan. WIP Writing Challenge FIGHT OR FLIGHT!!

I thought I’d start off the year with the mother of all prompt challenges for my ongoing interactive monthly WIP challenge. It’s taken me a few days to really come up with the right fit! I skimmed over so many ideas, passing up everything as I’ve felt them less than worthy. Weird, I know, but…

Cozy Holliday at Home, Nov. WIP Challenge… Head Chef Carla

The two of us stand together, shoulder to shoulder, as if we’re mentally preparing ourselves to storm ahead yet we’re physically unable. Carla and Dean, mother and son, we’ve vowed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal to top all other meals of the past. My daughter usually dons the chef’s hat in this house. She’s amazing…

WIP Writing Challenge, on hold for June!!

So, every month I do a writing scene prompt and invite any authors who’d like to participate to join in. We plug the characters from our WIP into a scene with the given prompt and at the end of the month, I link the participants into my own scene. It’s been SO MUCH FUN!  I…

April WIP Writing Challenge: ‘Road Trip’

There’s something about this time of year that just shouts road trip!!  Maybe it’s because (most) everyone has been so cooped up over the winter, so as soon as the sun begins to shine we just want to GO! Somewhere, anywhere, aside from our couches. So for April’s writing challenge, I’m going…

March WIP ‘Moonlit Romance’ Writing Challenge! #KDSuspense

This is the second time that I’m a big fat cheater, and am using an actual scene from a book rather than writing a fresh one. No it isn’t (just) for advertising purposes, its actually much much much worse! I’m copying a scene because this weekend I’m LAZY!!!! I have a thousand logs in the…

“Out to Sea” WIP character scene, Feb writing challenge.

Back and forth we rock and sway. Just when I think I’ll be alright another drop of the boat leaves my stomach in my rib cage, ready to crash to my knees with the next upward pull. I slide down the flimsy wall that separates the tiny bathroom with kitchenette and I wrap my arms…
