Celebrate the Small Things

I’m in a big rush as I write this one for Celebrate the Small Things, hosted by Lexa Cain. This week I have a lot to celebrate. Lots of writing and other work done, including housework and  yardwork and daily exercise. Have to run now due to going to visit my dad’s girlfriend then my […]

Simple

It’s an old story, old perhaps as time. My world changed the day we met and I can never quite figure out how. Mom pressured me to go spend time with you, because “you never know how long you’ll have.” I hated the smell, the cloying perfume and flowers, the crowded collection of photos and […]

Celebrate the Small Things

Here’s my post for Celebrate the Small Things, where every Friday we celebrate our accomplishments for the week, and I have to be honest, it has been a while – and I’m kind of wiped this week. My dad just got out of the hospital again and is in rehab, which is something to celebrate […]

IWSG: Another Year, Another 50+

Here’s my post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, where once a month we get together to encourage, support, and share our joys, hopes, and insecurities. This month, I’m feeling pretty good. I’m getting myself re-entrenched in the Freelance writing thing, survived holiday with my family, and adopted a couple new kittens were roaming in […]

Celebrate the Small Things #4

Here’s my fourth post for Celebrate the Small Things! As often Friday mornings in a bit of a rush, well as usual on most mornings most of the time, but here’s what I can come up with thus far! Finally, I got someone to remodel my bathroom. I ditched the former guy and got new […]

IWSG: What a Tangled Web

I’m not really sure what to write here. I missed last month due to an unexpected (feline) death in the family – and due to finding out I need to find a new place to live (still working on that), all of which caused me to completely forget IWSG. I’m now in this kind of […]

A Love Letter from Heaven

I had to hunt this down so I could repost! I spoke to my sister and she said the feather she found she put into a hat and gave to my mom who passed away shortly after (from cancer). Thank you for sharing as this was deeply meaningful and what I needed to hear right […]

Friday Fictioneers: The View Up Here

PHOTO PROMPT- Copyright Rochelle Wisoff-Fields Here she was at last: her first cross-country flight, from Merrill Field to a small airstrip outside Anchorage. Halfway thru, Sarah saw a round saucer-shaped ship cruising along at her 9 o’clock, noiseless and invisible to her controls. Sarah wiped her eyes with the backs of her hands, and looked […]

IWSG: Nothing Personal – But….

>   Way, way back in undergrad, in my very first creative writing class, we were given a series of biographical essays so that we could confront “the auto-biographical impulse.” For (haha) personal reasons, I hate self-disclosure. This is sometimes why I do it too – like lancing a wound. Then, hopefully, it will heal […]
