#WeekendCoffeeShare – Relaxin’

cappuccino on table

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that it’s been one long week and I am so happy that the weekend is finally here.  I have for your sipping pleasure tonight, coffee, tea, apple cider, and of course water.  I think I’ll have a bit of the apple cider while we sit, listen to some music, chat, and just relax a bit.

What’s on?  One of my favorite playlists.  The Black Crowes, “She Talks to Angels” just finished playing.  I’d say that it’s a bit odd that a song of a girl using drugs, presumably heroin, is so moving, but it is.

#FridayFictioneers – Flying Saucers, Dude

“Woe!  Dude, did you see that?”  Cindy looked wild eyed into the sky, lost her footing and fell into a pile of straw.

“What?” Scott asked in a thick voice.  He looked around halfheartedly through squinted bloodshot eyes.  Shading the sun with one hand, he looked, not knowing what he was supposed to be looking for.

“You see it?”

“See what?”

“The flying saucer dude.”

“Oh!  You’re hallucinating again.”  Scott plopped down in the straw next to Cindy.  “But since we’re both in the straw.”

Cindy pushed him away.  Another saucer zoomed past.  She screamed, and bolted into the woods.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Watching the Fights

cappuccino on table

If we were having coffee, I may just have to pass tonight.  Not because my love of coffee has waned (on the contrary), but because I’ve already drank about two pots today.  At some point tonight, I’m going to need to sleep, so perhaps I should abstain until then.  The coffee pot is at the ready however, so feel free to help yourself, and as always, we have tea and water.

We can watch the fights as we talk.  The UFC is on, and maybe there will be some good fights tonight.  I used to keep up with the UFC.  We would go out and watch the pay-per-views, making a night of it with friends.  It was a good time, but now I mostly just watch the free ones that come on TV.  I’m not sure why we quit going out to watch the fights.  Maybe I’m just getting old, or maybe I just got tired of spending the money that could have been better used elsewhere.  Who knows?

#FridayFictioneers – Cool Breeze

Carl lay back looking up through the hole in the rotted roof.  Sweat on his forehead ran down into his eyes.

The midday sun hid just outside his line of sight, burning bright and hot in a cloudless sky.

What I wouldn’t give for a cool breeze, he thought.  He looked over at the defunct ceiling fan,  wishing yet again that it could spin.  How nice that would be, if the blades were straight and spinning, making this tropical paradise bearable.

That however was not to be.  So he poured another tequila, and waited for a cool breeze to blow.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Writing Update

cappuccino on tableIf we were having, I would get you a cup of whatever this is the hotel is serving in coffee cups, and then give you an update on the writing stuff from last week.

Missed last week, or just plain don’t remember what we talked about?  No worries!  It’s a busy world we live in.

Last week we talked about how I haven’t been very accountable with my writing and how I needed to tighten up.  I am proud to say that I have done just that.  Since last time, I’ve been logging my words on The Magic Spreadsheet and my streak is up to seven days today.  Each day I’ve done at least 300 words, most days more.  I wonder how long I can keep it up.

I also mentioned a youtube channel that I could use to hold myself accountable.  I made a test video or two, but I just can’t do it.  What can I say?  I’m just not a video kind of guy.

That’s really about it!  I’m off to bed early tonight, because we have a big race in the morning!  Hope you are all doing well out there, hitting your goals, whatever they may be.  I hate to be so short tonight, but I really do need to get some sleep.

Come on back next week and we can talk a bit more!

#FridayFictioneers – The Perfect Place

Mr. Jowers sucked in a sharp breath as Jenny’s eyes lit up.  Just his luck that she “loved” the most expensive place.

“It’s perfect Daddy!” She exclaimed pointing.  “Band there, cake there, …and this dance floor!”  She twirled with all the grace of the ballerina she was.

“Yes, it’s nice.  But the last place was nice too.”

“That place,” Jenny said crinkling her nose, “was horrendous.”

“B-but the columns.”

“Oh, Daddy, columns are so two years ago.”

With visions of the perfect wedding in her head, she left Mr. Jowers and a smiling hotel manager.

 

Daddy reached for his checkbook.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Writing Accountability

wp-image-1093036968If we were having coffee, I’d wish you and very happy Easter, and offer you a nice cup of freshly brewed Seattle’s Best coffee.  In the event that coffee is not you thing, I’ve got some green tea, apple cider (I may have some of that later), or the ole standard, water.  I’m sure we can get you hooked up with some kind of sipping beverage that goes along well with conversation and music.
