~Spring is in the air here in MN and I'm loving it.  We're finally seeing upper 40 degree weather and the snow is quickly melting away.  Soon the allergies will kick in which will stink, but in the meantime I thought another spring time picture would be cool to share today.  So above is a look at a White House Garden in the spring of 1921 via The Library of  Enjoy!~

Monday Muse...

She wrapped herself around him as his fingers played out his grief.  Their time on earth had been so short - too short, now all she could do is stay with him until he crossed.  That was, of course, as long as the reapers didn't find her first...


Muse is on a roll lately.  Short snippets of ideas...some work - some don't, but they all must be written down.

Monday Muse...

So I gave my Muse a bit of a workout this weekend and what do I have to show from it - more confusion!  You see I have this story that spans both YA and Adult.  Adult erotic, maybe, but I'm not sure yet. 

I thought my best bet would be to start on the YA end and see what I could make of it.  Perhaps, I could straight line it into the story it would end up being, but my lines squiggled and knotted.  One clear pathway in my world building led to a tangled mess in another.  I can't do one thing, without another not working out, but when I try to untie that mess I create another elsewhere.  ~arggg~

There's a story here I want to tell, but clearly I need to dig in further and create a firm, steady base for my crazy changing world - and so I shall continue.  My dragon queen will live, eventually!

Musin' it with Pictures...

The gorgeous pictures above are shared from intw's media at photobucket.

So it's Monday again and my muse is being stubborn.  I can't say as I blame her...she's offered up a wide selection of ideas from which I can choose lately to start my next story and I've not settled on one yet.  I'm not sure what's wrong...there have been some really interesting ideas there - Dragons, stores filled with sex toys and more, shapeshifters galore, even zombies...and still I can't decide.  Perhaps I need to pamper my muse for a few days, see if something jumps to the forefront, or maybe I should throw all the ideas in a hat and pick one out. 

Who knows.

One thing though, while there are no Monday Muse words today, my lovely lady was still generous and giving enough to share with us the fabulous graphics above...

~I have, without a doubt, a love of photo's and a love of history.  So when the two come together as they have in the picture above...color me a happy camper!  Here's a handful of the women who made my future what it is today.  My rights assured because of their work.  Good on them!~
