The Stories I Tell ~ from The Word Cellar

Stories. Anecdotes. A free round of words for everyone!

I love stories. I'm the one at social functions with a dozen new anecdotes. But I worry about hogging the conversation. Sometimes I tell myself that I'll be quiet and let others do the talking. But no matter how hard I try, my stories insist on bursting out! Here I can let my stories (the classics that I tell again and again, as well as new ones that unfold along the way) run free. I'm a professional writer and editor, and sole proprietor of The Word Cellar. I write for a variety of publications and clients on everything from green buildings and nuclear reactors to entrepreneurship and the arts. If you need words written, edited, or enlivened, I can help. Contact me.


Sunday Scribblings: Simple

This week's prompt at Sunday Scribblings is "simple." I've been dabbling in watercolor for the past two weeks, and my results are rather simplistic. But I like a few of them for their lovely simplicity. This is one that I did today. May you have a lovely holiday (if you're in the U.S.) full of simple pleasures. And even if you're not celebrating a long weekend, I hope you have a lovely day nonetheless.

So sweet! I love Beatrix-Potteresque soft watercolours, the understated simple colours. Living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I find stuff like your watercolour here, exotic. It gives an impression that you had a nice quiet, meditative time making this.

Yay for you! Messing about in paints, such fun, and so lovely.

Thanks for the encouragement and kind words, all. I love the Beatrix Potter reference. I think an Etsy shop is a long way in the future, though. ...Then again, maybe I should rethink that. hmmm...
