Wordless Wednesday: Just Desserts

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

‘Tis about the season to indulge because calories don’t count around the holidays, do they? 🙂 This particular photo was taken at the October Emerald City Writers Conference (attendees are treated very, very, very well):

Wordless Wednesday: It’s a Girl Thing

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

I LOVE doing girly things with my nieces, especially the younger ones.  This is Youngest Niece when she came to visit.  It was such a treat! (Especially since she opted to go home with her parents! 🙂 )  Of course, we had to plan a girly-girl day, complete with mani-pedi and a new hair cut.

IMG_3237 It amazed me how she cued into everything done that day with the fascination that comes with being young.  Hope she hangs onto that trait for a LONG time!

So, my writer-peeps, any scenes or characters come to mind for you?

Happy writing,

Wordless Wednesday: Bikini Weather

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday! (Although I’ve pretty much given up on the “wordless” part.)

My last post was, admittedly, an old one I’d done about my mom, this being her birth month and all.  So it got me to thinking about Guam – the island where I grew up.  I remember seemingly endless days of sunshine and warm tropical breezes whispering through the palm trees. . .. Total bikini weather!

Can you feel it now?  🙂

So, writer peeps, what scene or story idea does this photo inspire in your muse?  Please share!

Wordless Wednesday: The Lady in Pink

Life at The Male Observation Lab (a.k.a. the day job) is never dull, even for those  who don’t actually get to play in the dirt with the dudes.  Case in point, to celebrate Halloween, the dudettes at Central Command came up with this:

IMAG0946It started with the skeleton.  Someone clearly felt she wasn’t dressed properly (hey, we work for a conservative company – nekkid is not allowed) so one by one the pieces appeared as each dudette put her touch on this masterpiece.  (The toilet paper was my idea – not that it’s ever happened to me, of course!  :-))  Pretty cool, huh?

So, my Wordless Wednesday writer-peeps, what story would your muse come up with to explain the lady in pink?

Wordless Wednesday: Would You Like Fries With That?

Welcome back to Wordless Wednesday!

I’m still trying to get myself organized after a fantastic writing conference, but I promise to post about that on Saturday soon one day.  Meanwhile, my jaunt through memory lane produced this photo:

a029_4It made me think about being a writer, what choices I have to make to pursue this publishing goal — which will morph into something bigger once *that* goal’s achieved.  (And, yeah, like other author-wannabees I’m optimistic!)  I thought about the choices we *all* make as we travel along this crazy road called “life.”

How I came up with all this from one photo makes me shake my head in amazement.  Apparently, La Muse is moody today.  There’s a surprise!  🙂

So, my dear writing peeps, what scene comes to mind for you?

Wordless Wednesday: A Manly Man

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

I’ve been walking down memory lane the past few days, and came across this photo of one of my best dude friends – who, by the way, was featured in my very first blog ever.

Hubby and I were at the beginning of a home remodeling project a few years ago and we recruited some friends to help us move out while the work was being done.  Of course, Dude-friend was more than happy to volunteer!

IMG_0948Writer peeps, what story scene could you come up with that’s worthy of such a manly man?

And just in case you’re wondering, yeah, he’s single.  😉

Happy writing,

Wordless Wednesday: Hush

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

I’m lucky to live in a part of the world that is so exceptionally beautiful, particularly in the summer.  For me, getting away from the manuscript, even for a day, is just what I need to give me a fresh perspective.

IMG_3427So, writer peeps, what do you all think could happen, might happen, did happen in a setting like above?

Happy writing,
