I was planning on walking down to my favorite local coffee shop today – and maybe I still will – but I found myself dragging along in the ‘afternoon slump’. But, I was determined. I told myself, that if I found the motivation to write, then I could have a yummy London Fog or Iced Mona Lisa Latte. On the flip side, I said that if I found the motivation to write, then I HAD to walk in the hot hot outside and write at said coffee shop.

I have a free coffee. I feel like this information is important. Also, it’s only five minutes away. Five minutes of heat isn’t fatal, is it? #Idontgooutside

This site is abounding with awesome writing blogs, catering more specifically to Fantasy and Science Fiction writers. And as I read, I found these excellent articles and thought I would share!

We had W.A.F.F.L.E. again last night and another writing prompt! This one did not flow as easily for me as the last – and my PC pooped half-way through so I lost some of it – but it was still a good exercise. I tried to focus on developing the characters and giving the reader a sense of who they are, rather than world building for this one.

As a side note, you can read a different take on this prompt over at For a Thousand Words… and The Ship of Dreams.

We’re almost there!” Delia shouted as she bounded up the grassy hill, carefully avoiding the wildflowers that littered the path.  Behind her lumbered her younger brother, struggling to keep up. Although Jared was tall for his age, he was hardly athletic. Delia’s insistence that he join her on the adventure was what got him out of the house.

The hill was on Delia climbed often, watching the ships come and go, imagining this day. She didn’t want to experience this moment alone.

W.A.F.F.L.E.: The Adventure Begins

Last night we had our first Writer’s Guild Meet-Up, which was quickly renamed to W.A.F.F.L.E.: Writers’ Awesome Fancy-Fun Literary Evening! So now we can say “Are you going to W.A.F.F.L.E.?” or “I can’t come. I’m W.A.F.F.L.E.ing tonight.”

We had five total in attendance, with several more not able to come due to scheduling, but we had a great time with out little group.
