Progress and Thoughts

So last week I wrote about the difficulty of choosing a recipie for a story that dealt with food and how trying that could be to someone like me - someone who doesn't cook. But I persevered, and with the help of friends, found some recipies that would work, going on to try and write the story.

That resulted in dead end after dead end. Finally I shifted area, time, characters and situation and came up with something that I think will be a lot of fun. At least I'm having fun writing it. And, thank the Powers, it is not turning out to be long like my murder mystery was.

Last night I got the prompt for this week's drabble, Rapture, and I'll have fun with this one. I already see the scene in my mind, and I can easily continue on in my Exploration of the Dark Side with this prompt. I love it when things work smoothly. (Not intending to insult anyone's personal beliefs with the pic, just thought it was funny.)

So I should be able to finish my first draft of my "Feast" story this morning after my breakfast oatmeal and reading time, and work on my drabble. Today will be a fun writing day. Yee-haw!
  • Current Location: I want to start writing!
  • Current Mood: energetic energetic
  • Current Music: Michael Gandolfi - The Garden of Cosmic Speculation: Garden of the Senses Suite
Good luck with Feast story, seems like you'll have a nice day! :) And will you try the recipes you got from your friends? :)
Well, I still don't cook, so I doubt I'll move the recipes from the printed page into the kitchen :-)

It's odd how much I enjoy reading recipes and about cooking, when I actually don't much like cooking, and sometimes have to remember to eat. I got a subscription to Cook's Illustrated for my sweetie, but I'm the one who reads it cover to cover...
I used to have a subscription to Chili Pepper magazine, back in the days when I still cooked. But I stopped cooking about ten years ago and haven't regretted it yet :-)

Rapture brought a similar image to my mind too - which started my day with a smile!
It is rather amusing how words have been kidnapped to have different meanings in our current world.

I like reading recipes but it is very unlikely that I will cook from them.

I like the rapture Gopher - we did not hear much about this rapture in the news.
I really don't enjoy reading recipes, there is nothing entertaining for me in those.

Yes, the Gopher Rapture was seriously under-reported in the world-wide news establishment. Shame on them!

BTW - I thought your Tarot card was so perfect for you!

I haven't done a tarot card; however, I have just done one and I got this:

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

What Tarot Card are You?

I love writing days! :)

I also love experimenting with recipes, so I see many happy days trying them out. [g]
Ah, better you than me. I am not someone who experiments with recipes :-) Writing days, however, they can make me very happy indeed :-)

Good for you!
I'm sticking to drabbles, and am trying to think where "Rapture" fits in my current series.

I have sent an entry to Teitho,though and ought to work on a WIP
Rapture worked very well for me. I have it in for beta with my writers group now.
