Help, please

If anyone is out there...

I could use some writing prompts. They don't have to be SVU-related. In fact, I sort of prefer they aren't (the show has kind of lost itself, in my opinion).

I would like to write again, but I just can't get started on my own. Please help!

Tuesday on Wednesday

This is from yesterday's TeacherWrite:

"Write for two minutes to describe a very specific place. If you’re just free-writing, it can be a place that you love, or have visited, or a place that frightens you."

My specific place is bed : O) Here goes:

Writing again!!

This summer, I'm going to try a little writing again. I'm doing the #TeachersWrite online "Summer Writing Camp". There is a writing assignment every day, but it's a no-pressure thing, so it's forgiving. I'm going to post my submissions here.

For those of you who have followed me for my L&O:SVU stories, I'm sorry I haven't posted any in quite a while. SVU hasn't really inspired me much since they jumped the shark with Liv's character (and the fact that Alex and Casey weren't around for a long time and then were/are only on sporadically doesn't help). Sorry. Please keep reading my stuff and commenting, though. I really appreciate all of your feedback.
Jigga what?

Attention Twitter followers

I wish that Twitter had alerted me earlier that someone had hacked my account and tweeted a bunch of spam. I'm sorry. I have reset my password. Please re-follow me. I feel very sad with only 3 followers : O( And they are all people I can actually SEE whenever I want, lol.

I know it has been a while...

I wish I could tell you that I have been storing up a bunch of writing to post or something, but I haven't.  Maybe it's because SVU has kind of lost its appeal for me (although that may change since Alex AND Casey will be back this season).  Maybe it's because of everything going on my life that seems to have dampened my spirit - creative and otherwise - indefinitely.  I don't know.  I want to say that I'm sorry.  Whoever still visits here and hopes for new material, I thank you. 

Who knows, my muse may return all of a sudden and I'll start writing again one day out of the blue.

Another blow.

My mom just found out she has breast cancer.

I never before understood why people could be mad at God.  The bad stuff is not His fault.  I know that.  But for some reason, I'm mad at Him.  Maybe it's because He can take my completely irrational and wholehearted anger. 

My mom doesn't deserve this.  It's been less than 2 months.

I want to scream.

Sad News

I know that Scribesquill makes major announcements on here, so I don't feel out of line sharing with those of you who consider yourselves her friends that her father passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon. Please keep her family in your prayers in the coming days.

Very quick update

Hi!  Mucho rapido update...er...o.   

We got a canoe. 

We went camping. 

I just got asked to be the godmother to my friends' new baby boy!  I, of course, had to come out to them in the spirit of full honesty.  Mama wasn't awake yet so Daddy couldn't talk to her to make sure it's okay, but he doesn't see that it will change their choice.  Direct quote: "You're still Christian, right?"  "Yeah, of course."  "Well, that's all that matters."  Bless.  So, I may get that incredible honor.  Woohoo!  Oh, and a visit to Idaho in October-ish to see some great friends.  Double woohoo!
