Monday, oh fair Monday how quick you arrive, surprise, surprise. I have been very busy for the past couple of weeks, so If I have missed a few of your posts, please pardon the absence. You’ll find out why near the end of this post, (snickering and giggling like a foolish school boy). You would think that with Friday’s Fantasy burgeoning in my mind, and flowing flowing through my finger tips, I would be worn and weary. Not quite yet though! It seems the more involved I get with writing these stories, the more thoughts ideas, and plots evolve and show glimmers of their essence, tantalizing and tempting my thoughts. Ahh but more about that later, let’s just keep everyone waiting just a short while longer.
This week, I have only two projects to share with you. One deals with art, and one involves writing, hopefully by a number of authors. First off lets get started with a little art. Many of you are well aware of Vikki’s Blog, (Kel, this is the site I told you about, I know you would love it) at The Red Chair Gallery. She is an accomplished and talented artist, and a writer. Her posts always contain a piece of original artwork from her, and a very interesting and fun story to accompany it. Vikki contributed two chapters to David’s Past Life’s collaborative project, and played a mjor role inhelping to organize it. The links are over there, ----> to the right…… in the side bar. If the captivating art work doesn't grab you, ( I can’t imagine that not happening) The stories will.
For a few months now, Vikki has been doing an art challenge with a few of her fellow blog artist’s. A theme is decided on, and the artist’s have to create a piece interpreting that theme. I have two favorites, Jealousy, and Hope. Well Vikki has now created a web site exclusively for the Artist Challenge. Artists are welcome to submit works for the challenges, and join in the fun. In her own words, it is “ a private art club, for artists, art patrons, and fool hardy souls”.
"Abandon all hope ye who enter here. Pull up a chair and be of good cheer."
The artist awaits you.....
I have entered the dark, dusty abyss and emerged safely in one piece, so I would say fairly it’s a fun and visually entrancing site. If your an artist join the fun so those of us with limited ability can view from a safe distance, and appreciate your talents.
OK…. OK, So now let me tell you what I have been doing. As if two blogs isn’t enough, really three with the side blog. I have started two others. One of them I’m writing in the voice that I think of my dog Peanut having. He is the one that is my profile picture, and really small. Being constantly full of energy and playing all the time, he reminds me of a small child. Life Through Peanut’s Eyes is a fun and playful blog, even if not very creative. I started this blog about two or three weeks ago, not real sure, my weeks seem to be fusing into a large mass.
The other one I set up this weekend, actually Sunday evening over a period of about 4 hours. I loved doing the chapter for David’s Past Life’s, and really enjoy the theory of collaborative writing. So I created The Collaborative Writers Corner. I hope to attract some of my fellow blog authors, who may have a yarn to spin, or might enjoy adding a little something from their unique vision to an existing story. Hopefully we will end up with a large selection of active stories, of all genres, changing and taking shape almost daily. Check out this post I did on the Side Blog, and you’ll get the idea. So far I have gotten one fellow writer to join the fun. Lou of LouCeel has joined our little corner, and will be adding his great talent to the project. I’m really excited about this project, and have even started a new story over there in that tiny corner of the blogosphere, (Thanks Kel for the inspiration). I have new sections of the story, forming and giving light to my slightly over active imagination, just about hourly. So come on over and see what I have done in just one evening, and perhaps join in the fun.
One special note of thanks. Speedcat, you are Da Man! Thank you ever so much for the help with code for the badge. I would have been struggling with that for many more hours if you hadn’t lent a helping hand.
Not to worry, I will continue Friday’s Fantasy right here as planned. This story is a particular passion of mine, and I have been enjoying being the medium for it to flow.
