Gumming up the works

My Week 45 prompt over at More Odds Than Ends came from Leigh Kimmel. I couldn't figure out a way to work it into Cursebreaker, so I came up with this. The prompt was: It was supposed to be a simple hard drive swap, in and out. When the tech opened the robot’s casing, what …

Cursebreaker #22

This is a very late response to Week 43 of More Odds Than Ends. It's been a strange couple weeks. Not really anything I can put my finger on, but I'm out of sorts. If pushed, yes, the election is having an effect. The continued restrictions on activities, and normal life continues to grate. That's …

Cursebreaker Part 19

Right now, I haven't been doing much writing besides the prompts from More Odds Than Ends. But, that's still a good thing as I'm making progress on Cursebreaker (of a sort). Since today is Monday I am (once again) setting out a daily schedule for myself, and doing my damnedest to stick to it. I …

Odd Prompts

Today, a Tuesday, I would actually be standing in front of my first classes of the semester (I taught Tuesdays/Thursdays). …

Gargoyles

It's been an off week or ten days. Not off in anything bad, just feeling off-kilter. Hubby went into the office for a couple of days last week for the first time since mid-March, which was weird in a "this is not our usual day" sort of way. I haven't made a lot of headway …
