I live in St. Louis, MO, but my heart and soul hang out at the beach. I am a multi-genre, award winning writer and member of St. Louis Writer's Guild. I am a seasoned pre-k teacher, on line writing instructor, wife, mother, Nana to ten. Hopefully, something I say will make you smile, further your writing career, or inspire you to write from the heart, too.

This old house...
Crazy unpredictable weather! Sunday it was 60 degrees and within hours it was 6 degrees. Winds were whipping at 50mph. But, while it was balmy, we got outdoors. We drove across the Mississippi River to Columbia and Waterloo, Illinois, both historic little towns.
I like taking pictures of old houses. This Victorian appealed to me, but I couldn't get a full shot so you can't see the cute little attic dormer windows.
I imagine dozens of scenarios when I see large old homes like this. Did a farmer and is wife raise a dozen kids out here in the flat lands?
And what about this beauty with a wrap around porch? Writer friends, you can use visuals like these as prompts to help create scenes in your prose or poetry.
