I haven't sat down and written in years. I've thought about it in passing and maybe jotted down a poem here and there randomly, with little reward, but lately, I am feeling the hunger to write begin to gnaw at me...has my Muse returned at last? Will I finally begin writing again? I really, really hope so. I miss it very, very much...

I've gone through a similar dry spell, DragonWrites. I understand how you feel, and for me, it may be just some of the chaos of the last few years impacting my choices on how to best spend my time.

Just keep trying. And be proud of all you already have created too.

Happy 19th!

I've added a new entry to my book, "Once Upon A Shadow, Deep Inside A Dream:
Hello, all! I haven't been writing for a very long time. I want to start writing again. I wrote a great deal when there was an active dark story and poetry group called Shadowworks (or something like that). They would give a weekly prompt for a short story and one for poetry and these were darker pieces.

I was wondering if any of you can recommend a group like that, one that offers weekly prompts geared toward dark fiction and/or fantasy/SciFi pieces. Hopefully both. :) Please let me know!

Hello, everyone! Sorry I've been so silent. As of July 19th, I will have lived in Shanghai, China for 7 months. It is crazy to imagine that I've been here this long! I am looking forward to what the future holds for me.

I am continuing my Masters degree in Ministry with a Pastoral Leadership and Counseling focus. I am moving slowly forward. I am also now living with three small turtles, several fish, a hamster, and two cats. :) I had two roommates, but one was a horrible person, so we split ways at the end of June. Now, it's just me and Caleigh.

I have had stressful days, I'm not going to lie. I do believe that there is much for me to learn here, though, in order for me to become a better person. I hope to start writing again. I do have a podcast that is random and sometimes entertaining, so you can search for Hephzibah Talks A Lot on most podcast forums and find me. :) Have a listen and let me know what you think!
So...sorry I haven't been about lately. I was out of town enjoying Disney World and a Disney Cruise. During my vacation, I was delayed by DE for my departure to China. I now leave on December 18th.

We are finally in single digits, however I have lots to pack and I haven't really started. I am looking forward to moving...and yet feeling some anxiety, as well. So much to do and plan for and figure out! Ugh! It is helpful, though, since I plan to relocate out of NM when I choose to return to the States. So...I have a minor glimpse into what will be required of me to make that happen. Of course, I can rent a truck then, so it won't be as restrictive.

So, summary...I'm not in China yet, but I will be on December 19th. And now you know!
Shanghai update: It's official! I received my Visa on Thursday and my itinerary on Friday. I fly out on 12/4 at 7 a.m. and arrive in Shanghai at 6:35 p.m. on 12/5!

I leave for Florida Monday night. I will spend two weeks enjoying myself and going on a Disney Cruise. I am really looking forward to moving to Shanghai and I am excited for all that will be experienced and learned. Yay!
Welcome to China!
Haha, thanks! I haven't been on here for over a month! They delayed our arrival. We all arrive on December 19th now. :)
I enjoy the riddle that is about three items on one side of the river and a man with a boat that can only take one item at a time. He needs to get all three over. How does he do it?

One version is that there is a head of cabbage, a goat, and a wolf. The goat can't be left with the wolf or the cabbage because the goat will be eaten by the wolf or the goat will eat the cabbage.

It is pretty simple for me to figure out (normally, riddles are not at all simple for me), so that is probably why I like it so much. The man needs to take the goat to the other side of the river. Then, he needs to go back for the wolf. Then, he needs to take the goat back to the other side of the river and take the head of cabbage to the other side and leave the goat. Then, he goes back for the goat. So, at any given time, the wolf and goat and the cabbage and goat are not left alone.

I think there is another version where he can take two items at a time, but that's too easy. One would take the wolf and cabbage and then go back for the goat. It doesn't make it nearly as challenging.

What are some of your favorite riddles?
