• March Madness – Certain Chaos – Still Playing Catch Up!

    Hullo, hullo! 😀 I just got a message from @steemitboard telling me that it’s my first Steem birthday! Woo! Party time! I knew it was coming up soon, but thought it was in a few more days… around the 16th or so… guess I was wrong, haha! ~ I’ll have to write up a Steemversary post later. 😀 For the time being though, it’s time for the next installment of Certain Chaos! Still playing catch-up and using old prompts. The prompts I used today were: Elder. Jittery. (Rather enjoying doing two prompts at a time, actually. Might need to find secondary prompts when I get back on the correct day!)…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – A Whole Lotta Catchin’ Up To Do!

    Hullo, hullo! After an unexpected, unscheduled, and very undesired outage, we are back for our regular programming of Certain Chaos! 😀 What happened? MY LAPTOP EXPLODED! Kind of. The PSU ‘popped’, released a burnt stench into the air, and powered off forevermore. It was a crap-tastic HP with minimal power and memory and everything. But it was cheap and its sole purpose in my life was to serve as Machine of Story Writing, and it failed at that half the time too. I’ve been suffering with the thing for jussttt over a year. I came to Steem with it. Imagine my disdain when I discovered how it struggled to even…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – Day Six!!

    Hullo, hullo! 🙂 It’s Day 6 of #marchmadness and I’m STILL not on par, but at least I’m writing. That’s all that matters at the moment. 🙂 I will get there eventually. I will, I will! The prompt for today was — minivan — and at first I had no idea how I was going to incorporate it. Was Loren going to have his headquarters inside an old broken-down minivan? Maybe his compound was surrounded by the vehicles. Maybe a near-dying Henry would wake up inside of one, somehow. Or maybe… it was all a dream. If all else fails! 😉 Anywho. Today’s Wordcount: 1604 Total Wordcount: 9177 And onward…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – Day Five!!

    Hullo Mad Readers! 🙂 It’s Day 5 of #marchmadness, the prompt for today was — sound — and considering where I left off yesterday, there was plenty of opportunity to utilise such a prompt. 😀 Unfortunately, I had no idea where to go with the plot; my brain is at a loss… so, I’m eagerly awaiting tomorrow’s prompt to see how I’ll finish this little encounter off and get on with the story. Or if I can switch to say, Loren’s perspective for a moment and just ignore this trio for now, haha! Will work it out. 🙂 Today’s Wordcount: 1493 Total Wordcount: 7573 (still not on par!)   Liquid…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – Day Four!!

    Hullo my Mad Steemian Friends! 🙂 It’s Day 4 of #marchmadness and today I not only wrote while I was actually awake, but I wrote almost 2000 words – yay! I needed 2350 to get on par, but I’m happy with what I did (even though I’m writing largely nonsense). By the end of the week I should be right on track… only to fall off the track when the weekend raises it’s tiring head. xD (just realised the end of the month is on a weekend too, aaarrrghh!) Anywho, the prompt for today was — meat and gravy — and, here it is! Oh man, I have time to…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – Day Three!!

    Hullo! 🙂 It’s Day 3 of the newfound madness –the #marchmadness!!– anddddd… I’m surprised I wrote even this much tonight. I’m half asleep and still not on par, but at least I’m writing after a month of practically nothing. Hoping to reach the appropriate goal tomorrow when it’s no longer a weekend and I have a few hours to myself. Fingers crossed! The prompt for today was — log — and, let the rambling nonsensical mess begin! Think this day’s writing “finished” Chapter One, haha! XD (for the most part. It’s not a proper end, I know; heck, it’s not even a proper story. My writing is all up in…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – Day Two!!

    Hullo!! 😀 It’s Day 2 of the #marchmadness, hosted by the @freewritehouse, and the writing I’m about to share was created within an hour of zoom-writing. My son went to bed, I waited for his snores to sound, then I let my typing fingers fly free in a flurry of semi-freewrite! I had absolutely no time today, and I expect the same tomorrow. Weekends have become crazy. Ack! (Who decided that March should begin riiiight on a weekend this year? Seriously. 😉 ) Also, I made an error because I live in the future. I should’ve just stuck with the — grass — prompt yesterday instead of trying to utilise…

  • March Madness – Certain Chaos – Day One!!

    Hullo, hullo! Welcome to Day One of #marchmadness! Don’t know what that is? Allow me to direct you to THIS POST by the @freewritehouse 🙂 (or if you don’t want to click: it is essentially NaNoWriMo but in March and using the daily #freewrite prompt) I began this with today’s freewrite prompt in mind — grass — but then GinaBOT sent me a notification! The First March Madness prompt had been posted at the @freewritehouse, and it was — in the club. I had some changing up to do! But you’ll find both prompts in the story. It was a bit hard to get into the spirit of writing today.…
