I enjoy many topics, but through my experience and learning, I have always been writing. Some of the topics that I enjoy writing about are writing, books, and tabletop and video games. I also love challenges and writing fiction.
Podcasts for Writers
I cannot get enough of podcasts. It is wonderful to hear all of the stories and interviews available from across the world on all kinds of topics, and I do listen to a wide range of topics. As an aspiring writer, I have discovered a few podcasts on writing and books that have fantastic tips and tricks that provide tips or at least let me know I am not alone in whatever challenge I am having.
Introducing Children to Role-Playing Games
There are many ways to introduce children to role-playing games (RPG) for tabletop such as Dungeons and Dragons (DND) and Pathfinder. There are cute RPG board games out there that have been reviewed online that are fantastic for children, just search “children + rpg” with Google. However, I ended up introducing my two young nieces to DND on a whim with just a couple of dice and our imagination.
Gracie was amazed at how far she could see. The hills and trees stretched forever and looked like Mother Earth had tucked them into bed with a fluffy white blanket. She wondered if there would be something interesting between the two hills she saw down below. The rocks going down the side of her hill looked easy to climb. Curious, she started down to see what was to be found.
Why The Sun Sets
Long ago, Sun was floating in a void with only Earth for company. However, they did not talk much since Sun was always burning hot and bright and Earth was so quiet. This made both Sun and Earth extremely sad and lonely. Sun did not know how to become friends with Earth. He knew Earth did not like his heat and burning, but Sun could not help it. Frustrated, Sun could not sleep and lack of sleep made him cranky. His anger caused him to burn even hotter. With all of the shining and burning, Earth became sick, dry, and barren. Only dirt and rock could be found. Earth tried to get Sun's attention. She first spit fire, but she was not strong enough and the liquid fire would shoot up only a small way and then dribble down the sides of her rocks and valleys. She also tried yelling and throwing rocks at Sun, but Sun still did not hear or notice. Sun was too wrapped up in feeling sorry for himself and being cranky. It was a difficult and hot time for both Sun and Earth.
