They had been planning for that trip for 3 years.

Usually with my story sparks, I choose a stock photo to use as a background (like I did on Tuesday). At first, I liked the aesthetic, but after a while it became flat. @ingridblixt suggested that I repurpose my own art as backgrounds. Although I don't have a great amount of art to choose from, it does make this feel more grounded. Maybe that means I just need to create more art. 😉 🎨

She wanted him to try a little harder.

I haven't posted one of my story sparks in a while. If you're curious to see more, head over to my site (link in bio). I have over 1000 of these little buggers.

This is our towel hanger in our bathroom. It was here when we moved in. I think it's one of those things that is so quirky it's cool. 🦆 🤣 (it watches me wash my hands)

I'm hardly keeping up with Ray Bradbury's challenge of 1 story a week. I might actually prove him wrong and write 52 bad stories. 😆 I recently finished one in which I described a graphic #monster scene just to see how I would do it. It's actually a little bit comical. 🤣😭👹 #flashFiction #lightningFiction #creativewriting #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #readersofinstagram #igwriters #writersofig #writersnetwork #pureMichigan #authorsofig #bookstagram #horrornerd #horrorart #horrorfan #horror #macabe #horrorphotography #horrorgram #instahorror #horroraddict #scaryart #urbanlegend #creepyart #creepyphotography #spooky #creepycrawlies #spookyphotography #twilightzone

The stop light is taking too long.
It's happened to me more than once while sitting at a red light and I haven't noticed the passing of time. I start to wonder if I missed it turning green. If it's stuck. Within seconds wonder turns to anxiety. In half that time #anxiety turns to #panic. Why don't I see any other cars? What the hell is happening here!? So far, the light has always turned green and my day continues as planned. 😨😨🚦🚨🚨...🚣 #flashFiction #storySparks #microFiction #lightningFiction #spilledink #creativewriting #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #readersofinstagram #igwriters #writersofig #writersnetwork #pureMichigan #wordart #wordsmith #authorsofig #lovelansing #weird #weirdfiction #insanity #reality #takemeaway

I took this photo the other day near our house while on a walk with Frankie. I was messing with it last night with filters and effects and super imposing it over itself. I stopped at this iteration. I don't know why, but it reminds me of the 4th book I'm going to write. A novella, actually, marking a transcendence in a 7 book series. However, there are many more stories I need to write before I can write this one.

I'd be lying if I said it wasn't influenced by #twinpeaks s3e8. 🦉💣📻🚬🐸 Well, not the subject, but the idea of inserting a radically different perspective in the middle of the story.

We recently took a trip to the #Arizona desert. I must admit, when the sun went down I was glad we weren't hiking. There are things that come out at night. Things that are trying to survive.

Ice was beginning to cover the surface.

In most cases, things don't happen as fast as we want them to. Debt doesn't get paid down fast enough. That book doesn't get written fast enough. I find that I get more done if I take a deep breath, have a little #patience and then slowly #persevere. At first, it might seem impossible to form something that's not there, but sometimes, not always, but sometimes it happens.

She began to notice the stains on the walls.

Have you ever been somewhere that seems normal, perhaps mundane? You might notice one thing that's out of place and then another. Your complacency turns to alarm turns to #fear, maybe even #terror as you are now aware that you are surrounded by things that you didn't notice before.
I got the idea from insects...spiders or ants..bedbugs. But the same would be true, I presume, for a blood stain speckled apartment. 🔪😐😱 #flashFiction #storySparks #943 #microFiction #lightningFiction #poetry #instapoet #instapoetry #poetsofinstagram #spilledink #creativewriting #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #readersofinstagram #artworks #art #prose #igwriters #writersofig #photography #shortstory #writersnetwork #pureMichigan #wordart #wordsmith #authorsofig #trapped #horror

He forgot to drop his daughter off at daycare.

It happens every year. A story about a child being left in a car in extreme temperatures. I can't imagine ever doing this. Well, probably neither could a parent that has done this.

I don't listen to music in the car anymore.

It happened quickly and I don't remember it specifically. I was fiddling with the stereo, trying to change the song. I think ACDC's "Highway to Hell" was playing. But, like I said, I don't remember it specifically.

They didn't think they loved each other anymore.

@ingridblixt suggested that I use crops and variations/manipulations of my own artwork with my #storySparks instead of stock photography.

Love isn't (just) fast food and candy. Those times are fun and exciting and you need to dash those in again once in awhile. You also need to appreciate the vinegar in the marinade. Know that it is the slow cooked, salty times that will make your love more satisfying.
Happy Valenetine's Day!

She held her breath for some kind of relief.

We are all under a lot of stress. I've been trying to do a lot lately. There are a lot of works that I want to try to complete. And, right now, a lot of them are shit. It's easy to get discouraged. But, I also need to remember the concept of a non-zero day. As long as I get something accomplished (no matter how small), I can be content and know that I'm moving forward. Oh, and also remember to keep breathing...that's essential. 😁

Another bonus: I seriously did not try this, but this photographer is also from Wisconsin!

The flowers from her funeral were wilting.

I have been listening to @lisahannigan a lot lately and her song "Prayer for the Dying" is currently one of my favorites. I read that she wrote it for a friend after seeing their beautiful #marriage ended by cancer.

Another favorite song of mine that shares this emotion is "Hungarian Kiss" by @kaada_. I'm not sure what his inspiration was. Maybe he can comment. 😉😁 Bonus!: This photo was taken close to where I grew up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula
