Return To #Minecraft

First, it’s the beginning of the month, so there’s a new Hot Flash up. Hot Flashes are tiny little stories, in case you don’t know already.

Now. Yes, I know I said I was abandoning Minecraft, but no other game was satisfactory. I wanted a game with no ads, one I could play offline by myself, not “with friends” or winning awards on Google Play or anything competitive or social at all. I didn’t want any violence, and I wanted to be able to do what I wanted, not to be guided through a program.

That means Minecraft, Survival Mode, Peaceful Level.

So here I am, struggling with the frustration of trying to see and identify, let alone press, the correct icons in my inventory. It’s still the best game in town.

So here’s my new workspace in my new house in my new world in my old game. I found TONS of clay in this new world, and I’m right near a desert biome, which means lots of cactus to make into green dye. I’m also right near a stand of acacia trees, so I have lots of beautiful acacia wood for the floors and ceilings.

The single door leads to my bedroom.

Here’s the outside. I love this.

I love Minecraft so much!

Oh, I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today about a cauliflower scramble.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character puts up with an inconvenience to do something they love.




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.

      Well, thank you, Dan! I consider myself officially egged on. Do they say, “Stop egging her on,” up in your neck of the woods?

      It sure is, Jane. And, if building becomes too high-anxiety, I can always fish for string, bones, cowhide, and saddles. Well, and fish, of course.
