A Pile of Words

We ordered this set of words from Amazon and they're kind of cool to mess with. I already have a couple of sentences but there aren't enough words to complete my most recent one.

She entered a crack in the world of magic to escape a human monster.

He followed her.


I don't write fantasy but it is a great starter sentence. I could really do something with it and I may try. A few days later I had some more lines and rearranged the previous ones. 

Playing with the words is inspiring and I found that surprising. We want to order the original set because there just aren't enough words in this one. Problem is that they're expensive and there are at least a dozen different sets!

Ah well. More important things for now. Say sleep?

Interview with the Author

Several years ago I played around recording an "interview" of me talking about my writing. I kind of used it to give myself some encouragement and incentive. I don't know if it worked. It was fun. 

In light of my recent publishing of an anthology with my writer's group, I revisited this video. It is still amusing. And a bit prophetic?


I might try it again sometime.
