Because I can’t seem to engage my brain today to do anything intellectually worthwhile on my end, I thought I’d post a few things that might stimulate a story for my followers who are writers (who hopefully have enjoyed more than the two hours of sleep I was blessed with last night). So here goes…pick a prompt, any prompt (of the few below I’ve provided of course). Write a short story, poem, flash fiction piece. Comment with a link to your blog or website where it’s posted once it’s done. Easy peasy. That way we both feel productive, and I don’t really have to do anything 🙂 (Oh, and the one I like the best, I will reblog and post on twitter.)
“No, no. I can’t.”
“You have to.”
“It’s too much. He’ll expect—”

She isn’t lonely in the traditional sense. She has a dream, plans, a career that fills her, fulfills her, and a loving family that although far from perfect, supports the future she’s building for them. But something’s missing and she can’t figure out what. She only knows it’s enough to wake her in a cold sweat at night, more lately than she’d like to admit. Sensing disquiet, her significant other sends her away for a weekend retreat. Rest and relaxation in a cabin that’d been in her family for decades seemed ideal. Until she arrived.

There are just so many possibilities with this, I’d rather see where others take it than give direction.
Now just because I have defied laziness today with my blog post, don’t think I’ve forgotten about all of my non-writer followers…just for you, not only can you read my creation from these prompts here, but I’ve also added a few extra teasers to my site. New, under Character Corner from the top menu, you’ll find juicy glimpses into the minds of Sara and Jacob. Anything from interviews, to journal entries, to real time moments in the characters’ lives, prior to when Morrow’s Horizon takes place. Admittedly it is a sparse corner at the moment…you do know how I love to tease…
