The Moirai – Goddesses of Fate: Immortal Monday

507px-The_Triumph_of_Death,_or_The_Three_FatesI personally find the Moirai fascinating. You may be familiar with them from the movie Clash of the Titans. They were depicted, as they have been described through the myths, as three haggard old women. I’ve gotten to know them … Read the rest →

Magical Moment: Friday Fictioneers

Occasionally I will post here to remind you that this blog has moved. To read the full story please head over to our new location. Debrakristi.com. We look forward to seeing you there.

………………………………~O~………………………………

This is another rendition of Friday Fictioneers. I was going to take a pass this week since I will be at DFW Con but, when I saw the picture I already had the little number jumping out at me. I had to put it on my blog for my number one fan (you know who you are – Team Dohlan girl). Thank you, Kent Bonham, for the fabulous photo prompt.

The point of Friday Fictioneers is to write a story in 100 words based on the photo prompt provided. Our amazing leader is Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and she’ll be more than happy to let you play, too – if you beg and plead. Just kidding. It’s open to anyone.  :)  Fictioneers, don’t feel obligated to comment this week as I will be at the conference Thursday through Monday and unable to reciprocate.

The Birthday – the milestone event of another year. I told Susie Lindau, the Wild Rider that I would blog about this day and then I proceeded to panic about it all week long.

Thor Fumbles and Cupcakes: Zombie Mom Confessional

I’ve been a Zombie Mom lately. Why, you say? Writing work hours for one, the craziness with the family is another, and on top of it all…I got SICK! Seriously, who can afford to get sick these days? But I did. You’ll be happy to know the doctor ruled out the zombie eating flesh virus. Stress has run me down, though. Verdict, I need to be a good girl and make a few adjustments in order for my body to get better.

What makes a Zombie Mom?

Webster Dictionary defines mother and zombie as follows:

      • moth·er [muhth-er]  Show IPA   noun
      • 1. a female parent.
      • 2. often initial capital letter  ) one’s female parent
      •  zom·bie  [zom-bee]  Show IPA   noun Informal.
      • 1a person whose behavior or responses are wooden, listless, or seemingly  rote; automaton.

There’s more. You can read it now by jumping over to new new location here.

But wait! I got something better for you than this. Wait for it. What’s the word from Thor?

Thor's surprise for Tameri

Want to know what Thor is all dressed up with a scowl on his face? Make your way over to our new internet hangout to find out about Thor fumbles and update teases. While you’re there you can:

  •  You can sign up for your own Thor visit.
  • Enter for your chance to win a hard copy of Meg Cabot’s “Abandon.”

Or go straight to Tameri Ethertan’s fantastic blog, A Cup of Tea and Sorcery. for her incredible story directly.
