Crop circle (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Everyone has their own theory about crop circles. Some people beleive that crop circles are a hoax made by tricksters who want to shake things up. Others believe that crop circles were made by aliens.
Create a story set in a small town and have someone discover a crop circle. Who found it and what does it all mean? Create your own story and shake things up a little.

What would you do if you discovered that you were an immortal or supernatural being?
Nora Grey, from the Hush, Hush series is transformed into an immortal after receiving a blood transfusion from her father, who was head of the Nephelium race.
Bella Swan from the Twilight series gave up her supernatural natural existence in order to become an immortal vampire.
We can’t forget Grace from the Shiver series transforms into a wolf in order to save her life when she is dying.
The funny things about these immortals are that they really aren’t immortal after all.
Select any immortal you desire and write a story about your transformation. Be creative and have some fun.

Driving Up North on 23 (Photo credit: ColorblindRain)
I had to keep my eyes glued on the road, while I blasted the stereo in order to stay awake. It didn’t matter that it had been 24 hours since I last slept I had to keep moving…
What is happening here? Is someone after her?

Finale, the fourth and final book in the Hush, Hush series was all that I had hoped for. Sometimes novel series leave you feeling down because issues feel unresolved but that’s not the case with this novel.
This novel picks up where Silence left off with the book’s protagonist, Nora Grey chosen at the leader of the Nephelium after killing Hank Millar who was her father and the groups’ leader. Nora is forced to swear an oath to lead the Nephelium in an army against the fallen angels. The Nephelium are half angel and half human mixbreads who are yearly enslaved the Nephelium during Cheshvan, a time where the fallen angels are free to possess the Nephelium bodies against their will.
In this novel Nora discovers her new Nephelium powers and superhuman strength as she musters the courage to lead her people in war against not only fallen angels but against Patch, the love of her life. Fitpatrick does a wonderful job at tying everything together as secrets are revealed.
I found this book very exciting. I loved it and I am sure you will enjoy it too!

Thanksgiving Day Greetings (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Today is a half day and we have the rest of the week off for Thanksgiving. I think I will give myself a break too. My challenge to you is to write that’s what I will be doing. I am going up to Canada with my twin sister, and parents to visit my aunt and uncle. As we drive I’m going to b thinking about Alex, the protagonist of my novel and what it must feel like being on the run in the mountains of the Adirondacks.
I am bringing my laptop and Finale. I just want to relax and write. So today will be the last post of the week. Check out my posts for next week.
What are you going to do with all this extra time?
I am reading Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick. It’s the last book in the Hush, Hush series. There are four book in the series. The first book introduces the protagonist and sets up the rules in her world. Angels are real and not all angels are a”angels”.
The second book focuses on Nora’s relationship with Patch, her boyfriend/fallen angel. Each book creates more obstacles between Nora and Patch finding the chance to share their love for each other. The fourth book takes of where the cliff hanger left off with Nora now being the leader of the Nephelium, placing her at odds between fallen angels and her true love.
When you write and if you decide to create a series and now-a-days it seems like a good idea think about what each story will focus on. Select a few relationships and go from there and of course read some on the best-selling series that are successful. My Books You’ll Love section will give you plenty to choose from.

WriteGirl women. Such the best. (Photo credit: Rachel McLeod Kaminer)
I have to give a shot out to WriteGirl in Los Angeles. WriteGirl just went to Washington DC National Arts and Humanities Youth Award. They even got the opportunity to meet Michelle Obama! I was a mentor for WriteGirl for three years when I lived in LA and I am so jealous of the women that have the opportunity to share their talents with all those talented teenagers.
If you live in LA check out WriteGirl. WriteGirl even published a yearly anthology of all the girls writings. Check out WriteGirl.org for more information!
Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with a good writing prompt but then I try different things to see where my crazy mind will take me. I start off it the great “what if”? What if there was a secret city? What if one two people who are the exact opposites fall in love? What if? What if?
What is a vegan, and a crazy carnivore who kills her own food got together for Thanksgiving dinner and somehow fell in love?

I was going to visit my friend, Johanna when my GPA started to go bonkers. I was almost as if it was intentionally taking me somewhere else.
Finish the story. Where do you end up? Did someone program the GPS or is it magically acting on its own?
