W is for Writing and Witches

I think I just figured out a new story line...hahaha

So first ...I'm doing two W's because I'm kinda behind. My schedule has gotten thrown off this past week, so I've been trying to double up to keep up. So I figured since I've been not exactly following the schedule, I owed you an extra post. Even if they aren't very long. new favorite thing. LOVE it. Love to make up things for these imaginary people running a muck in my head. I make up new things for them to say and do. Then I put them in places around the world that I love or want to learn about. So as they walk the streets of London, I can look at maps on Google Earth and see what they see. I think I've written some of my favorite characters so many different times, that I know them just like I know my friends. I know their personalities and I know what they like and don't like. I think that's so cool. They're like my good friends. My imaginary friends. I made up stuff all the time when I was little. Scenarios full of danger and going after the 'bad guys' while I climbed rusty fences or trees. I guess this is the same thing.

Witches....another thing I used to do was pretend to be Samantha on "Bewitched".
I loved her. I thought she was so cool. I practiced the nose twitching thing in the mirror until I got so good at it, I expected things to start levitating.  I always wondered what it would be like to have magical powers like Samantha.

I think I know why she didn't always want to use magic. I think it would be boring to be able to snap your fingers and get anything you wanted. But using it to heal others would be great. But if you could fix everything with magic Then there would never be any conflict..ever. Would that be a good thing? Possibly..but once again...boring.


  1. I wish I could wiggle my nose like Samantha. And I bet my attempts to 'fix' things would probably cause more havoc than enough.

    Now you've got me curious what your new story idea is :)

  2. I love the idea of using Google Earth streetview to follow my characters down the street. Fab idea! (Like I don't get involved in their lives enough!)

  3. Since I don't have the money to go to all the places I want to write about, it's the next best thing..:)
