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 Part 23

Okay. So I caught up on my prompts. This is my response for Week 44 at More Odds Than Ends. I'm still feeling a bit out of sorts, but better than the last week or so. Writing or editing every day is helping. I'm also starting to plot out a new short story today and …

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 20

Week 41 for the Odd Prompts and once again, I got a prompt from Leigh Kimmel. These prompts are making me think! And that's not a bad thing...but, brain hurt. Anyway, this was Leigh's prompt: Under Pressure” is the title of a song by Queen and a novel by Frank Herbert — connection? For extra …

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 …

Cursebreaker Part 17

I almost forgot to write this! Phew! For the second week in a row, I got my More Odds than Ends Week 38 prompt from Leigh Kimmel. Her prompts are sometimes difficult to weave into an ongoing story, but they always provide a great mind-stretching exercise. Leigh's prompt to me was: Appearance of an ancient …

Odd Prompts

Another week, another set of odd prompts. This is Week 37 for Odd Prompts and as always they are giving me the creative kick in the butt that I seem to need and a great way to stretch my writing muscles. I am having a lot of fun with this and the responses have been …

Among the Living

Week 36 of Odd prompts gave me more fodder for the ongoing Cursebreaker story. Taking my cue from Cedar Sanderson, for the last few weeks I've been trying to work each prompt into the story no matter what. I'm still planning on turning this into a book, and I expect to do a great deal …
