I’ll Drink To That!

I was away from the internet all day yesterday, so I’m catching up today, but I had to share this with you.

My pal Red Tash has just finished edits on her upcoming book, This Brilliant Darkness. She was in a writers’ retreat with me at one point in the process, and read some chapters aloud. Her description of the creature she created struck me, and I was like, “You know, a flying birdbath sounds funny at first, but I bet it would be WAY creepy if you actually saw one.” And everybody else was like, “…Are you nuts, or are you hard of hearing? It looks like a flying bird-bat, you lunatic!” And I was like, “Oh.”

Well, in celebration of the completion of the latest and possibly final round of edits of This Brilliant Darkness, I have invented a drink called:


  • Blue Curacao
  • Blue Sapphire Gin
  • Twists of citrus peel

Mix equal amounts of liquors in a martini glass. Garnish with citrus peel.

WRITING PROMPT: A character is terrified by something he or she mishears.



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.
