29 & 30

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog recently and I apologize for that. I got a little bit overwhelmed with items on my to-do lists for the past couple of weeks, so posting a new prompt fell behind.

So now there are two!

And for our second prompt, a bird!

Hope y’all have a wonderful rest of your week! As for me, I’ll be checking out the Texas Teen Book Festival on Saturday. Maybe I’ll see you there!

Happy writing!

Love, Junebug

Today was my last day at one of my jobs. As much as I loved my co-workers there, I’ll be starting a new career on Monday that I’m confident will be amazing. So, for the next three days, I’m unemployed!

Sort of 🙂

I’m still wrapped up in (and very much enjoying) my internship. While in the beginning stages, the internship has already taught me quite a bit, and I’m getting more and more excited about it each day.

Additionally, I’ll be celebrating my birthday this weekend. I have mixed feelings of “Yay!” and “Yay?” about that one. Either way, I’m only getting older, so all the plans I have for my life are starting to be thrown into perspective… Primarily the one that results in a house by the beach. 😉

Dreams offer this wonderfully positive kind of uncertainty to life, which I think is essential for progress. If we don’t have something to work toward, why would we bother to work at all? So, in honor of this dream, please enjoy a picture of my favorite beach on this planet (as far as I know) for prompt #17: St. Malo, France.

I hope y’all find it as inspiring as I do. The beach, city, and country are just stunning.

Happy writing and never stop dreaming!

Love,

Junebug

14 & 15

Well, the past two weeks have been nothing short of stressful. Between crazy flash flooding down our street, a death in the family, and my husband needing emergency surgery, I’ve gotten behind on my posts. For that, I apologize.

Fortunately, our house was not negatively affected by the flooding and Husband’s surgery went smoothly. He is recovering quickly, so all is mostly well once again!

As I result, I owe y’all two new prompts:

You’re walking down a long hallway when you stop abruptly, surprised to see a large door to your left. Do you open it? Do you keep walking? What happens when you make your choice?

I hope everyone has a fantastic week and I’ll see y’all soon for the next prompt!

Love, Junebug

My Own Little World (Response to 7)

Well, I ended up with something slightly different this week.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the setting of a story I’m working on, so I tried drawing out the map for it. A picture of the first draft is below in all it’s non-artistic glory, but my main goal is to complete a 3D version out of clay… It’s going to take a while.

Still, world building is a fun process and for people like myself who work better by hammering out details before the story gets too involved, it can be very helpful to have your setting stand on its own before giving it the weight of characters.

See y’all tomorrow for a new prompt!

Love, Junebug

For the second prompt, we’re going to try a photo!

Of the short stories I’ve written, my favorite was inspired by a photo. Let’s see what this one does for us.

I’ll update next Wednesday with a piece from my work and a new prompt for us all.

Love,
