99 Word Prompt: Heard It On The Radio

(Another Flash Fiction piece prompted by Carrot Ranch. The prompt is about something you heard on the radio. In this visual internet age, the radio doesn't have the popularity it once did, but it still retains its own particular magic. Turn on a switch, spin a dial, and you can hear music that travels across … Continue reading 99 Word Prompt: Heard It On The Radio

Novel Recommendation: The Dead End

I recently finished a novel called The Dead End by British author Ellie Scott. Despite the grim title it's a very enjoyable read, and the first novel I've read on Kindle. The story begins with 20 year old Maddy Ward discovering that she has just died after being ran over by a car. Admittedly a … Continue reading Novel Recommendation: The Dead End

Fibbing Friday (9/4/20)

(Here I go again with more Fibbing Friday shenanigans when I should be doing something more constructive and honest, but this is too much fun. This one is prompted by pcivguy, and the theme is US history. Let's see how accomplished of a liar this history major is. Link below) https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/09/04/fibbing-friday-september-4th-2020/ Who was the first … Continue reading Fibbing Friday (9/4/20)

Fibbing Friday (8/28/20)

(Once again I'm filling out another Fibbing Friday questionnaire, this one prompted by pesitivity 101. The theme covers a number of subjects, and I hope I answered them as untruthfully as I could. Link below.) https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/08/28/fibbing-friday-28th-august/ 1.  What is the difference between a gooseberry and a grape? No one knows where gooseberries come from, or … Continue reading Fibbing Friday (8/28/20)

Fibbing Friday (8/21/20)

(Once again I find myself taking part in another Fibbing Friday exercise in mendacity, this one posted by pcivguy. This one has to do with harry Potter, and admittedly I've only seen the movies so no doubt I'll answer all the questions wrong. Link below.) https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/08/21/fibbing-friday-august-21st-2020/ Why did Harry Potter live with the Dursley’s when … Continue reading Fibbing Friday (8/21/20)

99 Word Prompt: First Flight

(A Carrot Ranch flash fiction challenge. For the theme of first flight I chose a bird I see around town on occasion, the peregrine falcon. For years their numbers declined largely because of the use of DDT. Since the banning of DDT and conservation efforts, the peregrine started making a comeback, of which the falcon … Continue reading 99 Word Prompt: First Flight

My New Fiverr Account

At the suggestion of a friend whom I am helping with a screenplay, I started a Fiverr account to market my screenwriting skills. https://www.fiverr.com/share/aeNBja I'm new at this so my profile page could still use some work no doubt (open to suggestions), but this is a good start.  I should add a video clip, but … Continue reading My New Fiverr Account

Fibbing Friday (8/7/20)

(Taking part in another Fibbing Friday, as prompted by pcguyiv. This one is a little different because instead of questions requiring false answers, this one features words requiring false definitions. I like this twist, and it shows that the celebration and promotion of lies can take other forms. Link below to original post below.) https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/08/07/fibbing-friday-august-7th-2020/Continue reading Fibbing Friday (8/7/20)

Beach Hill Reopens Beaches

(I initially wrote this for an online satirical website, but it was turned down, so I rewrote it for my site.  Beach Hill is a fictitious beach town along the California coast and the events in this piece are also fictitious, but like all satire it's based on real events.) Despite the recent increase in … Continue reading Beach Hill Reopens Beaches

Quarantine Activities

(I originally wrote this piece for another site, but it was turned down so I'm posting it here. Seemed like a timely and much needed bit of humor. I kept it as is and didn't modify it to fit the aesthetic of my site, except for one minor addition to the final sentence.) The quarantine … Continue reading Quarantine Activities
