Eleanor Roosevelt once said
“The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.”
It’s been a busy day around here at Castle Kredwyn.
Writing has been happening…cleaning and grocery store trips have also been in the works. Course I also shot a cranky email off to Senators Feinstein and Schumer for their wrongheaded decisions.
But now…I’m hungry. And since my characters have hied themselves off to the Green Man Pub for some grub, I thought that food would be a good idea.
Writers cannot work on empty stomachs…
And so my plan is to roast some chicken in the oven with the pesto mix that I made back before the nights began to get really cold and the leaves of my basil plants started to turn brown.
The chicken will work in the oven for about an hour, which is good for me.
I’m not drinking any beer. Darn it. I had a pumpkin ale last night in lieu of Captain Morgan and coke. I confess…I forgot the coke. Next thing I knew…this fuzzy feeling came over me and I all but fell asleep at the keyboard.
So no beer for me this evening.
The air is brisk outside. That cool crisp breeze helps a lot when it comes to clearing out the wonky energies from the house.
So this is kind of a Nano check in to see how y’all are doing.
Anyhow…here’s some plot twist ideas that I ran across the other day (anything that puts chocolate & skunk together has got to be interesting):
Take these 7 words and re-write them into a sentence to be incorporated into your story:
gallop crooked siren macabre fluttering shudder vintage
shy skull brash horror release rage journey
traitor tranquil raced deadly grumpy rhapsody jagged
temple reward tunnel foster sick tournament spotless
chocolate harrowing skunk jokes wander artist frightened
sequined insectoid shallow daunting pyramid book gorgeous
competition ooze foggy flames spiral stranger quickest
coward thief scared eyeball screech laugh strange
stranger fire uncovered haunted document tragedy excavation
tease shiver ancient twitch squealed absorb liar
angel nasty fever visitor dependable modified curved
impenetrable fuzzy unusual outstanding microscopic talons typical
deep triumphant evaded wings flipped overgrown stripes
foolish slobbered idiot adroit acrobat cherish cheater
magnetic patrol hidden guess vanish shard crawled
teeming dancer thrill transform mask thirst limber
deny dictator sweat swelling worried rust curdling
brave checkered sly fierce hobbled underneath fatal
So how’re y’all doing?
Update I just wanted to say “Wow!” There’s a lot of garlic in that pesto. Looks like I’ll be safe from whatever vampires y’all come up with.
