I Love De Interwebs

Look at this! This is a site called Bargain eBooks, that features eBooks for under $5.00. And they did EEL’S REVERENCE. I read the reviews and I was like, “That sounds like a good book–I ought to read that. …Oh, wait….”

I still have a cold. I was going to blog in detail about it, but I got enough sleep last night and thought better of it this morning. I’m wanting to write a story for NPR’s Three Minute Fiction. This might be a good time to do that. I already wrote a story for it, but it’s too short. I can’t expand it, because it’s already as sad as I can bear to make it. I think maybe I’ll try to write a funny one.

Have you ever read a description of a winter day where the sky and even the air was described as “gunmetal gray”? Well, that’s what it looks like outside my window this morning. We had a dusting of snow last night, with more predicted. Oh–it’s snowing a bit right now. I’ve never seen it really gray like this. It’s like somebody put a gray filter over everything. The evergreens look black and everything else looks some shade of gray. Even the snow looks very pale gray. I’m very impressed.

WRITING PROMPT: Describe the weather outside your window as if you’ve never seen weather like that before.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hmm…I’d better go take a peak at the website. Did you know there is an anthology to help the flood victims in Queensland. There’s a link on my blog.

    Now that took some doing by the angels above, sunshine covered by billowing rain clouds that threatened thunder strikes and erupted into a downpour, followed by high winds and ended in a tornado. Goodness, what would happen next. Ice crystals began to form…you get the picture. LOL
