Have We Done 642 Things Yet?

Oh, nowhere close to 642 things? Yay, that means there are so many left to do! By now you know the spiel, yah? There’s a book with 642 things to write about in it and every couple of weeks or so, I randomly select one, write for 15 minutes, and post the (largely) unedited result […]

642 Things the IV

It has been awhile since we had a 642 things prompt! Did anyone miss them? Does anyone care? Just me? Well, okay, then. I’ll do this just for me and the one person in the back who’s too shy to pipe up. 😉 Last time (more than a month ago!), the prompt was to describe […]

642 Things: The Inaugural Prompt

For Christmas, my good friend Bri bought me a great book called 642 Things to Write About. It is exactly what it sounds like: 642 random things to write about. I love this type of thing.

Sex, Politics, Religion | Creative Challenge


For our ninth creative challenge, I want you to pick a topic that really gets you riled up. One of those topics that are supposed to be off-limits in the public sphere because people get so heated about them, fights inevitably break out. Usually fist fights. Sex, politics, religion, whatever it is that gets you […]

Creative Challenge #6 response

Wow, so we’ve been slacking a bit here! Sorry about that, folks. If you recall, last week’s creative challenge was themed abstract or surreal. Bryan took a pretty cool picture, I think! Here it is: I love how it could be snow, or bubbles, or some weird foam thing, or maybe even a strange bacteria […]
