Friday Recommends – Sorry I’m Late!

Slept in until after 7, then got all internetted up and lost track of the time.

Found SO many good places this week!

First, the April A-to-Z challenge is open for signing up. I participated in this last year and met the fabulous Damyanti, who wrote a flash fiction Every. Single. Day. No, I won’t be doing that.

2 Little Hooligans is what I guess you would call a “mommy blog”, filled with crafting and cooking and fun stuff, like this post on making ice cream in baggies.

I can’t categorize Treehugger. It’s about alternative stuff like … Well, go have a look. It’s all kindsa stuff that makes your dear old MomGoth go into a happy fugue state. Like crab art. Like these transforming tables. Like keeping food fresh without refrigeration. Like this bookshelf/workstation. I mean … .. ! Is it any wonder, I’m late posting today? This is great stuff for my tiny houses stories!

Then there’s the awesomely awesome Medieval Castle website. Not just everything you wanted to know about castles, everything I wanted to know.

Finally, spend the rest of the day being amazed at Julian Beever’s fantastic pavement art. Wow.

Hope you enjoy my finds for the week.

Oh! I almost forgot– I have a new BFF website this week. It’s called Polyvore, and I can put together my very own Pretty Lady Outfits. I find it oddly invigorating in the way of writing. Maybe it gets the creative juices stirred up, or maybe putting together stuff I want to go together gets the left-brain organizational circuits whirring, but fifteen minutes on Polyvore gets me hitting on all cylinders. Whatever works, right?

WRITING PROMPT: A character is walking down the street in a town he or she has never been to, and a pavement artist is drawing a scene from the character’s life; something that happened just before he or she left home, that no one witnessed.



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.
