Shiver is the Prompt for Today

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press must have either been in a really cold room or frightened when they chose “Shiver” for us to create our various works of art on for today.

Love Feeling Cold

Unfortunately, rarely feel cold enough to cause involuntary body trembling.  That is why we relocated up to the northern part of the continental United States of America the country where we were both born and raised.

Has been suggested that I try moving to:

  1. Alaska
  2. Finland
  3. Siberia
  4. Iceland
  5. Antarctica

You get the idea.  None of those places has the medical facilities I require to treat my multiple sclerosis.  Nor do they necessarily have a suitable place of employment for my husband!  Quiver in horror at the idea of forcing our cat to suffer through the idea of another move.

What makes you shiver?

To get Shivers of fear:

I recommend reading one of author Stephen King‘s novels or watching one of the film adaptations of one of his many books.

If you are a fan of the older generation books and movies, maybe a good Alfred Hitchcock selection would satisfy you best!

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. If you would like to contribute to my fight against this mind stealing disease, please contribute by visiting  my personal website at http://saintpblogging.com/wp/ and seeing the copies of my writings located there!

Prompt for the Day: “Darkness”

The frightened people at the Daily Post division of Word Press thought using today’s prompt of “Darkness” would force us to create works of horror or something!

Prefer the Dark Now

It has to be completely dark for me to be able to go to sleep.  Even if my husband leaves a light on in the other room, I can not fall into a deep slumber!  Hate lying in bed not able to go to sleep.  So eventually go back into the front room to wake him up because he has fallen asleep in his recliner, again!  He then proceeds to turn off the lights so we both can retire to the bedroom for a decent night’s sleep.

When I was little, I was afraid of the dark.   Who knew what monsters were lurking in the night?  That is when the vampires and zombies in the books I read would attack their innocent victims! (Yeah, I read too much.)  Stephen King books all foretold of the evil that lurks in the dark.  Was a big fan of his books back then.

If you would like to contact me personally, just fill out the form below:

All responses will be read by me intimately!

Have no fear of the dark now.  Actually welcome not having the lights shining in my face these days!  Prefer residing in the shadows now.

Prompt for the Day: “Million-Dollar Question”

The prompt for the day from the want-to-be wealthy people at the daily post division of Word Press was “Million-Dollar Question“.  Following the prompt they asked the question “Why do you blog?”

Personally, I blog to keep my mind active and engaged.  Enjoy writing about topics that are suggested to me or things I feel strongly about.  The Daily Post offers new topics each day, sometimes the topics click with my current mood and I go from there.  Fellow bloggers also suggest topics to spark our imagination.

Some people use a blog as a sort of diary.  Others blog to record the events of their lives.  Then there are others like me, who have always loved to write starting in early childhood.  Aspiring authors test the waters for a new book themes and / or characters.  What better way to get help for building a new environment for a story?

You may not have a bend towards the science fiction environment, but another blogger may help put your writing’s work in that perspective.  Who knows what will come of this exciting adventure into a new genre?  Maybe this is what you were truly meant to craft in your writings!

Face it, all knowledge is good!  What you chose to do with that knowledge can remain good or turn evil.  The choice is all up to you.  Make sure you are comfortable with the direction your writing leads you and others to take on the journey.  If necessary, you may need to warn readers before they start engaging with your work that it is not meant for people below a certain age group.  You probably wouldn’t want a five year old to read about a bloody zombie eating frenzy, would you?  Or any creature on a blood fest for that matter!  Do you want to be the reason a child can no longer sleep at night?

If your desire is to scare people, then more power to you!  You may be the next Stephen King.
