My Words Project

I asked friends and family for some of their favorite words that I would use as writing prompts, these are those posts.

Words: Presumably

Presumably when one owns their own domain name said domain name would have relevant content on it. Presumably one would be prepared to have their new co-workers see that site when welcomed to the company.  Presumably if that isn’t the case you don’t care that much and you don’t sweat it.  Yeah… right.  That’s why…

Words: Perspective

via streetperspective.com though I’d appreciate original source info to credit. Perspective is an element that is going to come into play strongly in the novel I’m (kinda sorta working my way to working on.)  Since we’re in a sci-fi/fantasy world my characters have limited knowledge of how the magic that they use day-to-day works.  To…

Words: Integrity

Robin Hood Statue near Nottingham Castle I don’t refer to Wikipedia a lot, I realize that there’s a whole world of people out there who use it regularly, but it’s not my common practice.  Integrity has been on my mind a lot recently, so I wanted to be sure that my internal definition matched a…

Words: Together

Together is a tricky word.  It can be manipulative – “I thought we were going to do that together…” or it can be an invitation “I wondered if you wanted to go together…”  It can also be an assumption or even taken as an inconvenience – that is until you realize that ‘together’ isn’t a…

Words: Dogs

It’s hard for me to believe that I’m currently on dogs number 3 & 4 in my life.  I’m not going to say that makes me feel old.  I have a thing for big dogs.  Dogs that invariably contract cancer and leave me broken-hearted.  And yet, I can’t imagine living without them. The intro image…
