Writer’s Workshop for 07.02.2020

I'm having a really hard time drawing inspiration from the writing prompts this week - not because of the prompts themselves, but my mind is cluttered and I"m currently watching YouTube videos of how to replace a toilet tank's fill valve...

Battle of the Bands for 07.01.2020

How is July already here? I can't believe half the year is gone. True, it's been a challenging year. And it seems like both a decade and no time at all have passed.

As is customary around here on the first, it is time for another Battle of the Bands!

What is a Battle of the Bands, you ask? It s a twice-monthly blog hop hosted by Stephen T. McCarthy. On the 1st and 15th of each month, participating bloggers choose two covers of the same song and pit them against one another in a “battle”, and their readers choose the winner by listening to both versions and voting for their favorite in the comments.

Music Monday for 06.29.2020

Just a little bit late! Time got away from me yesterday (the time I would have normally been typing this post) because I exhausted myself working in the yard and pretty much passed out after dinner and a shower.

BotB Winner for 06.15.2020

In my June 15 Battle, I chose songs about beer - "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers" by ZZ Top and "Beer in Mexico" by Kenny Chesney. I thought beer was a good match for the warm weather we (hopefully) all now have, and I figured these two great contenders would have a closely matched battle.

Writer’s Workshop for 06.18.2020

...on 06.19.2020, because me and my wishy-washy ways.

I couldn't decide which of the prompts to write about this time around. It was between Something someone said recently that made you think and Write about a show you recently binge watched. And truth is, I've been thinking a lot about what's being said by other people lately. I've also binge watched a lot of tv lately, and at the time I'm typing out this sentence, I'm still trying to decide which show, of all the shows that I've binge watched lately, that I want to write about. If I choose to write about that.
