Today’s Progress!

Wow, what a day! I submitted seven query letters for Hermit Crab’s Friends. I also joined a poetry website called PoetrySoup. I worked my brain all day! Pretty soon I have to start incorporating the physical work! Lol!

Have a peaceful evening.

Three Line Tales

When the moon is this orange it is a night to go out looking for toad stools.

It seems like the perfect time for the dew to glisten on the caps of the fungi.

Be careful not to snack while out hunting, you may eat a bad mushroom and not make it home.

Mad About Metaphor

– The idea was difficult to swallow.

I have had this writing prompt in my “saved drafts” folder. I have no idea where to start or what to write. I even thought to myself, do you even remember what a metaphor is? Of course I did! I’m a teacher and do you know how many lessons I have given on metaphors? My problem was that I didn’t want to write some silly poem with metaphors that didn’t work or write a short story with metaphors that didn’t fit. Writing using metaphors was an idea that was difficult to swallow.

Twittering Tales #162

Blue Bubble Guy: My arm is killing me. Why did I even agree to this activity? Oh yeah, I didn’t. They call this team building? I call it “I am getting annoyed!” 

Red Bubble Gal: I am so psyched to be here! I can’t wait until they call on me to share! This stuff is so fun and I am so happy to work with such nice people! Wait until they hear my response. I bet no one here has the same unique experiences I do. It will be fun to listen to the others. The guy next to me keeps moaning. Says his arm is getting tired. Lol! I could do this all day! 

Aqua Bubble Gal: Yeah, this is fun. I hope it doesn’t take too long. Chicky next to me is loving it! Wait until she has to change jobs a bunch of times and do this over and over! I wonder what time we get lunch? This guy next to me, he thinks this is great. Probably his first time getting paid to play a game! 

Orange Bubble Guy: Haha, they do this kind of stuff at work? During the work day? I like this! I have to tell my buddies that I get paid to play team games when I go to work! Haha, they will be so jealous! I don’t think the guy at the end is having fun. Looks like his arm is killing him. Oh well, bring it on! I could do this all day!
