I Fell For It…Again

I am so gullible. Naive even. I truly believed I wouldn’t fall for it, no matter what they did, no matter what they said. But my own nature betrayed me, so now it’s official. I have entered NaPoWriMo’s April Poetry challenge. My house is completely upside down right now. Chez Lunatic...

Conversation To Inspiration

A few days ago I was talking with my second oldest son in the car and somehow the subject of empty promises came up. We were discussing how my generation was raised with parents from a completely different era and how their thought processes worked and how that affected us. One...

Talkin’ ‘Bout Things

  Thing the First: Son 3 finished his homework in record time yesterday: 3 pages in 30 minutes (four if you count math front and back but he only has to do even or odd numbers depending on the day-still…it’s multiplying fractions, ’nuff said). We struggle every day getting him to...

Rediscovered

Funny. Over at Poets On The Page, yesterday’s poetry prompt was to rediscover an abandoned poem and “finish” it. Last year I actually did just that and when I found the poem and it’s revamped self, I sat back and smiled a little. The revamped poem is about rediscovery. So, here...

The Words Were In My Favor But… 5

The Words Were In My Favor But…

It’s Day 4 so how about a very quick NaNo update? I got started a day late and as of yesterday morning I was still a day behind. But lots of words can happen in a day, and they did. Not only did I get caught up, I went over by...

BOOM, Baby! NaNo Is Here! 5

BOOM, Baby! NaNo Is Here!

Sorry for the post blackout. Last week of October meant getting blitzed with end-of-season marching band events, end-of-regular-season football games, Halloween, a family emergency, and a visit from The Niece. And let’s not forget NaNo began yesterday. Le Sigh. I’m tired already. At least the clocks turned back and I got...

Loop De Loop

Seriously? Loop poetry AGAIN? Anyone else feel like we’re running around in circles? *badum tish* Le sigh…fine. Here you go. I’m not doing it again.   xo Jesi     A Little Tongue in Cheek By Jesi Scott   What can I do? Do what I must. Must I really write...

The Best Christmas Toy Ever 7

The Best Christmas Toy Ever

Day 25’s prompt took me back. Write about your favorite toy. She was mine. Her original outfit was worn out a long time ago (though I do still have it in a box somewhere) and replaced by one a found about ten or so years ago. Her name is Alisha Anita...
