Vault: Weekend Writing Prompt

I’m helping you….

Open the safe 

Open the vault 

Take all the money 

It’s never your fault. 

Take all the money 

Hurry up run! 

What did you say? 

This isn’t real fun? 

Why are you worried? 

Why are you scared? 

It’s not a big deal 

It’s not like I cared. 

Go ahead and cry 

I will just say goodbye

Strange: Ragtag Daily Prompt

For the Ragtag Community:

It’s True

If you think that I’m strange  
Then maybe so are you  
If you think the sky’s grey  
It’s still really blue.  
If I think that you’re weird  
Then come along with me  
I have something to share  
Something for you to see. 
If this doesn’t make sense  
then you are totally right  
It’s like saying a real zebra 
isn’t black and white.

Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 24 October 2020

Our words this week are:

– melt and freeze

– rest and work


Life’s Truths

In the winter you freeze 
in the spring you melt 
these are the cards 
we’re automatically dealt. 

Before you rest 
you must finish work 
just because  
your boss’s a jerk. 

These are life’s truths 
believe it or not 
Or at least what I think 
and that’s what I thought.

From my desk: 10/24/2020

Hello! It has been a busy week and it flew by. Yesterday, Friday, I didn’t get to any of the writing challenges that I usually do. I will probably go back and do them anyhow because they are fun. Like Fibbing Friday!

So, I have a question I am hoping someone might be able to answer…
I published some children’s books through Page Publishing which is a vanity press. I decided not to renew my contract for my first book because 1. I don’t sell many and 2. I want to make revisions but to do so through them it is way too expensive. Now, what happens if one of my books sells on Amazon or somewhere else? I was getting royalties through Page but if I don’t have a contract anymore, now what? I guess I could ask them but I thought I might contact my WP world first.

I picked up my new cabinets today for my kitchen. I went to this Outlet store and the cabinets were only 1/3 of the price of Home Depot and they are better quality. Now to get them installed….I have a guy but I have work to do to get the kitchen ready for them.

I just finished reading the book Tea with Rasputin and posted my review. I was just so amazed with how it ended, I thought it was great. Just saying…

Peace to you all! I hope you are all staying healthy and safe…I read there have been a lot of earthquakes around our globe.

Pop in anytime for a hello!
