Friday Fiction – Like a Moth to a Flame

A continuation of sorts from last week, same character, but many years later They always said she had the worst taste in men, she was like a Moth to a Flame for the bad boys. She had always managed to get herself out of too much trouble, until now. Now, they were suddenly flocking to…

Friday Fiction – Waiting to be saved

Feeling a little bold after the 20 Day writing challenge and scoffing at my own whingeing about not writing more short stories, I have embarked on a journey to perhaps share some of my short stories, that have til now remained unpublished. Some are linked, some are not, but all have a particular piece of…

Everyday Inspiration – Day 20 – Wrap it up

Well, I made it, I think I probably half-assed my way through some of the topics, I just wasn’t ‘feeling it’, whatever that really means? I was expecting more short story prompts, but I found I tended towards more blogging or editorial/journalism style posts, not my thing at all. Perhaps it was my take away…

Everyday Inspiration – Day 19

Day 19 and WP Uni suggest featuring a guest, not really my thing. I have featured a few photographers a while back, but I often found it a little unnerving. So instead I thought I would feature the blogs of some of my friends who ALSO did the 20 day writing challenge; Mara Eastern Lovely, witty,…

Everyday Inspiration: Day 17 – Where the trade winds take me

It’s been a busy few days, so excuse me being a tad behind. Today we are asked to let a Map be our Muse, kind of ironic, or perhaps just well-timed. I have been very busy trying to finish off some projects, as I will be heading to Bali in a couple of weeks for…

Everyday Inspiration: Day 16 – Gold Mine of Material

Today we are supposed to Mine from our Material, honestly, I feel like this prompts are taken from the joke jar. Or something. Perhaps it is meant more in the way of social commentary or journalism, not something I am greatly interested in, not in a writing sense at least. Rehashing a day in the life…

Everyday Inspiration: Day 15 – Take a Cue

“Remember when we asked you to collect post suggestions from your readers? Write today’s post based on one of these ideas. If possible, mention the person who gave you the idea and link to their blog.” I know I just hit 50, but am I already slipping into my dotage? I honestly don’t remember asking…

Everyday Inspiration: Day 14 – Re Create a Single Day.

There are so many days I could re create, some good some bad, they are probably more interesting to read for other, but I just bring myself to write about some of them. Death, murder, intrigue. I spoke of betrayal and infidelity the other day, but today I would prefer to write about something else.…

Everyday Inspiration – Day 13, Word Counts

To be brutally honest, I don’t look at my word counts, I say what I need to say and then stop….so today, that’s it. I’ll say my piece and then no more, yesterday I turned 50, so that is my magic number for this word count, short and sweet. ~Julz

Everyday Inspiration: Day 12 – Critique

Offering genuine critique or construction criticism is actually quite difficult, as a Mentor and Artistic Coach I have had to do it several times, and occasionally even on pieces I personally did not like. It is very easy to say “yes it’s nice” or even just to hit the ‘like’ button, but have you actually…
