Book review: Arc of a Scythe

I finally got to read the last book in the Arc of a Scythe trilogy by Neal Shusterman. I’ve been looking forward to it for a while, because I really enjoyed the first two. Since I liked the series so much, I thought I’d try to do a quick review. Continue reading “Book review: Arc of a Scythe”

Mid-week Mumble: The Thing That Made the Week Better

This has been a rather exhausting week, filled with a number of minor disasters that just made the whole thing worse. One of these incidents was breaking my water bottle. My best friend gave it to me about three years ago or so, so I asked her to tell me where it came from so I could order a new one. She found the receipt in less than a day and went ahead and made an order.

In short, I have a wonderful best friend, and that’s one of the things that just makes life better all around.

End of Year Recap

I had every intent of doing a different blog post that kept more to the schedule I try to keep for blog topics. But then I realized that it was almost a new year/decade and I should probably do some kind of recap.

Quick explanation: A few Christmases back I was given a “Writer Emergency Pack” deck of cards. This included a set of prompts. So I’m going to go through and follow them, to the best of my ability. Some of these will end up being parts of my works in progress, others will be standalone stories, depending entirely on my mood.

Let me know what you think of it!

This is Prompt #7: What would happen if you skipped over the next few scenes/days/years? Continue reading “Prompt #7: Move Ahead Three Spaces”

Mid-week Mumble: Star Wars

So who else is going to see Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker at some point this weekend? I’m not sure if I’m excited to watch it for Star Wars, or excited because potential trainwreck, but either way should be entertaining. If it’s horribly disappointing, there are always clips of Baby Yoda to squeal over.

Oh, and I’m not reviewing the movie. No one needs my opinion added to the mix of what is certain to be a morass of judgment. So you’re welcome.
