I’ll Climb This Tree

Reblog from Jim’s site. Thank you for your contribution to Simply 6!

A Unique Title For Me

“You can’t fall if you don’t climb.  But there’s no joy in living your whole life on the ground.”  I have no idea who said this, but it reminded me of the song ‘Liberty’ that Jerry Garcia used to play.  Walt Whitman once said, “We must all be foolish at times, it is one of the conditions of liberty.”  You can take the easy route and live your life by sticking to your daily routine being afraid to go outside of your comfort zone.  But if you want to enjoy your life and be happy, you should take some risks, which will allow you to achieve extraordinary results.  Birds should not be walking, because they were made to fly.

Saw a bird with a tear in his eye
Walking to New Orleans my oh my
Hey, now, Bird, wouldn’t you rather die
Than walk this world when you’re born to…

Tripping the Multiverse: Jade and Antigone #1

Cover Reveal Banner.jpg

Expected Publication Date: January 2021

Genre: Science Fiction

As a science journalist, Jade has seen more than her fair share of peculiar oddities—none weirder than her socially inept fellow reporter Antigone. When the test of a teleporter using an electron collider goes awry, the two women find their world changed in subtle ways, with anomalies breaking out in their personal lives. Their increasingly unstable dimension gives Jadethe ability to shapeshift while Antigone can see portals into other worlds.

A fellow journalist who attended the experiment is trapped in another dimension and Jade and Antigone hold the key to saving him. Of course, their task is not just a simple rescue mission. Realizing they will continue to drift into increasingly stranger worlds until they straighten out the paradox, the women reluctantly agree to travel through the multiverse in search of a solution.

Simply 6 Minutes—Welcome To The Challenge: 11/17/2020

Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

You may use any part or the entire quote. If you have a different quote you would like to use, go right ahead. This is for fun, a sort of personal challenge. Enjoy and thank you for participating!

*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
