Oct 15 writing prompt.. CELEBRATE

DOB: 10/15/1980

Celebrate my birthday and get writing on your next book

Woo who… happy birthday to me… use these writing prompts for the word Celebrate, and see what you can come up with… is your character having a birthday like I am… or did they graduate from college or high school…. or maybe they are celebrating a wedding anniversary??? maybe they are going out for drinks and dancing, just celebrating life… or a new job, or scientific discovery…. there is so much to celebrate in life… take a moment in you own life and celebrate… and let you characters celebrate their own lives as well…

Kids usually have the best celebrations, but why?? they get gifts that are thought out and exciting… I still remember the book my mother had made for me… she used the kids book “the fox and the hound” and had my name and a friends name, Kevin, placed in the book… it made the gift about me, made it special and created a lasting memory or me to hold on to for the rest of my life…

but even adults can spice up a party and make the celebration memorable

balloons are always a good way to fill the air with excitement

Don’t forget a sweet of some kind… an offering of food that makes you or your character smile… for my celebration, I am going to red lobster and a movie… I love the coconut shrimp with pina colada sause… yummm

Maybe some ice cream cake if I don’t explode from all the other food… 😛

For a more musical party, put on your dancing shoes (always a pain for the toes and the arches), go to a bar with great music and foamy drinks, or stay home and turn up the radio, and fix your own fun drinks…

or maybe an artistic party of some kind…

Kids or adults, you could have an outside/night time celebration… a dance party, a glow in the dark sit down dinner, or maybe a pig roast… ymmm… now I’m hungry….

but my celebration will go along in a calm and cool manner, with my mother and great food, and then latter that night I will open up one of my favorite books… books have the ability to pull you in and take you places… both dark and joyous… happy wordage, create something for readers to escape into… Tracey

day two, oct prompts… Pumpkin Explosion

*all pics pinterest

Sooo yesterday I posted a free story about Marin instead of using a prompt of some kind… or I guess Marin herself was my prompt… but that was hardly fair to the rest of you… no one knows Marin the way I do, and it would be hard for everyone else to use her as a starting point…

So today I am sharing ‘PUMPKIN EXPLOSION’ as a prompt… I have also added a few pinterest pics to get everyone started… once I finished my pumpkin feast short, I will link it to todays prompt… feel free to do the same… I would love to see what everyone else comes up with… sooo peruse these lovely pics, and write about your own pumpkin explosion…

My story feels like it will be of the paranormal persuasion but there are so many different ways to take this prompt… we could see a kids story, as they fight the squirrels for pumpkins, a bakers need to track down the perfect one for his pies and whatnot, or a farmer that discovers that his pumpkins are hatching into something else… muhahahaha…. what will your pumpkin explosion turn into…

I would love to thank Amanda McCormick for sparking my mind to do this… happy October everyone… and happy wordage… tracey

Paranormal Romance Blog hopping

51n5v9kHhEL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

I have joined a Paranormal Romance blog hop… hmmm… for those of you new to blog hop (as I basically am) this is a fun way to get a list on new/established/and upcoming authors in the paranormal romance genre. For a list of all participants, go HERE … Most of you guys have already seen my blurb for Shocking Finds (A Finder’s Keepers Novel) out on Oct 26, but for those who haven’t …

An act of rebellion, Marin doesn’t think that running into the new store in town will hurt anything. Her aunt will never know… right? One car wreck later, her aunt is hospitalized, Marin is forced to spend her twenty-first birthday fighting for her life, and magic – the very thing her aunt has always sworn to be for fools – is real. And so is the irresistible Fae dedicated to Marin’s protection.

Kyland has searched Earth-side and all the other realms, looking for a missing Fae child. A child his Queen prophesied would be able to one day save the Fae people from the Danshue, as the evil Fae threat tries to overwhelm the entire Supernatural Community. A child that would know nothing of her blocked gifts, or her Fae heritage waiting to be claimed. A child that has grown into a curvy, delicious morsel he would love to taste

Together Marin and Kyland will fight Fae assassins, overcome betrayals, and if they’re lucky … they will find the Danshue responsible for their plight. That’s if Marin doesn’t shock him to death with her erratic new gift, and her out of control emotions.
