Bad Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf.

I found this photo on Facebook so if its yours and you want me to credit you please let me know.  Just don't ask me to remove it because I think its cool and I'd kind of like to keep it up.

I am always on the look out for story lines that are different.  It doesn't matter if its  movie, a TV series, an eBook, whatever.  I cannot stand when a writer rehashes the same old damn story with different characters or whatever.

The picture on the left s an example of the kind of things I want to see.  A sexy red riding hood and the big bad wolf appears to be her lover.  That would make an awesome story line.  Its almost along the lines of the movie "Wolves I Have Been" which I watched as a teenager and loved.

The stories I write are always based on dreams I've had.  There are a few reasons for this.  The number 1 reason being is because I tend to have very vivid, detailed, and bizarre dreams in a regular basis I might as well make use of them.  #2, People are always telling me I should turn my dreams into books.  #3.  Some great works of literature are based on dreams.  I' not saying my writing will ever be great works of literature because I don't think I'm THAT good, but its a formula that seems to have worked in the past so why not try it again.

There's a storm on the horizon.

I haven't written in months and I'm feeling a little artsy with my words this afternoon, but there really is a storm on the horizon.  The sunny spring sky has slowly been turning grey all afternoon and when I was outside a little while ago I heard the distant sound of thunder.  I LOVE the sound of thunder.  It doesn't matter if its far away or right over my head.

Today we found a nice store that is very excited to have my husbands beautiful furniture made from pallet wood on its floor.  I'm happy for him.  I know its what he wants because its what he loves to do, but I'm a little worried about the time he spends making furniture taking away from the time were supposed to be spending on our new cob house and I have serious doubts about how much money he will be making from it.

I guess he could say the same thing for my books though.  I've only completed and published one and I've only sold copies to people I know.
