Another Tuesday Group challenge: Write a piece using at least one word starting with each letter of the alphabet. The challenge must not be visible, the words must be used in such a way that the casual reader does not notice they are reading a challenge piece. Clear water stretching out, as far as I … Continue reading Alphabet Challenge
So this morning we had a relaxing exercise at Tuesday Writer's Club. Tony is joining us by telephone. You are not going to believe this; Tony does not have a computer. At all, by choice. So here is my attempt at the challenging task. The Easter Bunny has finished his work… “Never again,” He … Continue reading Easter Writing Task
My evil family is picking on me. For no apparent reason. I know I have told you that Gavin is really nice and rarely gets mad. I may have pushed it a little. I may have hundreds of D&D figures. I may have close to 100 sets of D&D dice. I may have over 700 … Continue reading I’m In Trouble
What happened? I was locked off my website! My computer said it was unsafe, and wouldn't let me over rule it and come here anyway. Am I unsafe? I mean I could understand when I was locked out of some sites that had stuff I was thinking of buying. That's Gavin, fixing my computer as … Continue reading Hooray I’m back

It's a funny idea but I wouldn't actually do that to you. I mean, would enough people even notice. If you don't know what on Earth I'm … Continue reading Been Busy 4 Solutions
I haven't written for a while. And its not because I got distracted by the follow button and tried to follow myself instead of pushing the write button. I have only wasted short amounts of time whenever I do this. Perhaps I should have followed through. After all I may enjoy reading what I wrote, … Continue reading Been Busy
Hello folks, another exercise for my writing group; find links between 2 disparate things and then write something comedic. Not an original idea of mine, a long time comedy staple. But after all its important to remember the classics. Guess which two I was writing about: It’s Little Eddie’s first day. The big car drops … Continue reading The Difference
Recently my mother said something unexpected, "You should do stand up comedy." My ego soared but then something occurred, "But you don't like my comedy." In fact once, I may have mentioned this before, I read her a monologue that I had written for an open mike thing and she got really grumpy and complained … Continue reading Confusing Critic
Okay so maybe something went a little wrong yesterday but on a happy note some of the biscuits (cookies) made it to my mother in law's house. And many made it home again because our cousin can't eat gluten. Not in a faddish way, in the has the genuine medical problem sensible way. So in … Continue reading De Railed Part 5 and thank goodness the end of the line.
