Eyes are the windows to the soul…

Peak inside and tell me what you see!

Right at this moment, what is running through her mind? Is she going to share her deepest thoughts, or keep them sealed tight as a cork in a wine bottle?

Happy Writing.

wow life before day one

The story doesn’t begin on page one!

As you walk past this window you catch a glimpse of … (what?).

Life didn’t begin because you happened to be passing. Life had already begun, and will continue after you’ve moved on.

When writing a story, open the window and invite your reader in. This is their page one, but to you, the author, page one thousand would be closer to the truth.

Deposit backstory as if taking vitamins, but don’t over do it because info dumping will slow the pace!

Happy writing!

Blurred Lines

How would you feel about turning your back on the enemy, or is this a typical case of sibling rivalry?

Sweet vs Sassy? At times the lines are blurred and not all as they seem…

Happy writing!

Living on the Edge

Dressed to impress they don’t go unnoticed. Or do they want to blend with the crowd? Is it a statement they are wanting to make?

Together they walk the line between risky and risqué, balancing on the edge of freedom. Who is saving who? Or, are they as one in their escape?

Happy Writing.

One Choice Changes Lifetimes

You travelled to another country to celebrate your birthday! So far, nothing about your trip has turned out how you envisaged, but you’re excited about your plans…until…

Your date is a no show. And, to top matters off, the tour you booked has been cancelled due to bad weather…

In the distance neon numbers alert you to the bus you could take back to your room. Do you, hail a ride and return to your hotel for room service and spend the night alone, or do you make a dash for the cute little bar on the corner you intended to dine in after the tour?

The choice is yours…and remember…one choice changes lifetimes!

Happy writing!

brenna darcy WPW Journal

Prompt with a twist

For those of you who don’t keep a journal, my challenge for you is to begin. Today, instead of the usual picture prompt I would like you to explore your true self…

…not the you all others see and think they know

…not the you who dresses in a uniform or work appropriate clothing every morning

…not the you who feels obliged to say yes all of the time

…or the you who thinks one thing, edits, and says another…

This you, I am encouraging you to explore, is you without all the fancy or false trimmings. Get in touch with your emotions, strip bare and be true. Discover your essence…the rawest most vulnerable version of yourself without the protective barriers you erect for the outside world to see.

I can’t begin to tell you how important true emotion is in your writing. If you get into the habit of writing these experiences down every day, you’ll have your very own book of gold…true emotion is priceless in fiction writing!

Enjoy the journey.

Sunset

There are a few places I find inspiring, one of them being the beach, and no time is more romantic than when the sun dips beyond the horizon — a sacrifice for the moon to take her glory.

Do you stroll, holding the hand of one you love…or gather in a group with music pumping from speakers, drink in hand…or frolic in the surf and toss a ball for your canine friend?

The shoreside offers so many possibilities…feel the sand between you toes, the crisp salty air whip the hair at the nape of your neck…allow the experience to engulf you. Icy water kisses your ankles, enticing you to be as one with the massive body surrounding you, burying your feet as water retreats, preparing you for a new encounter…

What will it be? Where will it take you? Enjoy the experience and, as always…

Happy writing!
