Toast, Veronica’s drawing challenge

Hi!

And a warm welcome to those who’ve arrived via Veronica’s post. I don’t draw often, so I usually just admire V’s works and don’t really consider joining in. But this week, Veronica called me out, tagging me in a post and specifically inviting me to join the fun.

So, I did.

I drew this on my iPad, with Paper and Pencil. (Paper is the app and Pencil is the stylus, both from 53.)

Feel free to join the fun, and be sure to check out the others participating in the challenge this week: VeronicaKatrin, Barbara, Marian, Kristen, Roberto, Renee, Nadine,Patrice, Lucia, Anneke, Eric, Joke, Linda, Sabine, Tammie, Mano, Stefanie, Carole, Renilde, Susan, Kelly,Dawn, Jennifer, Melodye, and Dot.

Daily Prompt: Progress

500words 150x150

Jeff Goins is hosting a challenge for writers: to write at least 500 words every day for the month of January. There are many reasons I love Scrivener for writing, and one is the session target. These little progress bars start red and gradually fade more and more until you reach your goal and the bar turns green. The above photo is my progress bar at the end of the day yesterday. I put a little sticker on my calendar and I’m thrilled that I’m off to a great start. I know it’s only one day, but you gotta start somewhere, right?

Anyone that wants to join me, feel free to leave a comment below and we can cheer each other on.

Making Love in the Library

bookshelf2“Please?”

“No, Alex. Absolutely not.” Mary slammed the book,  and returned it to the shelf.

He pressed his body against hers, breathing heavily in her ear.

“Well… maybe,” she sighed. “Just this once.”

This 33-word flash fiction story was inspired by Trifextra 67: Onomatopoeia.
This photo was inspired by two photo prompts:
the Wordsmith Studio Weekly  Photo Prompt: Books
and the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Happy Writing and Photo Fun!

A Photo-Chapbook!

Hello!

In February, a dear friend of mine and fellow Wordsmith, Khara House, hosted a Chapbook Challenge. I don’t write poetry (much) and gathering my flash fiction was a little intimidating, so I decided to to make a photo-chapbook. It was a great motivator for me! And came with a fantastic result! I hope you’ll check it out.

Nature: Reflections of Our Lives, Photography by Rebecca Barray

cover-thumbnail

Artist’s Statement

“Nature: Reflections of Our Lives” is a collection of nature photographs depicting the milestones of our lives. This work contains photographs of nature, symbolizing events from our lives, such as birth, love, betrayal, passion, and old age. It opens with a landscape of the sunrise and a seed sprouting from the soil. It closes with a fall forest scene and the night sky. The middle contains  images of the world around us that represent common life events.

About the Artist

Rebecca Barray is a mommy, writer, reader, photographer, and perpetual student. She spends most of her time chasing toddlers, but her precious free time is spent writing, photographing, and learning as much as she can about anything. She has three energetic children, a fun-loving husband, a messy cat, a lazy dog, and some very resilient fish.

Lunchtime!

Okay, this is not what I actually had for lunch. It was dessert.♥

cakeI’m a little short on time this week; I’m taking the kids to visit my dad for Spring Break. So I’m reusing this photo from a post I did a while back.

Happy Writing and Photo Fun!!
