Creative Clip: Oh! Christmas Tree!

Reflections of the season come with bittersweet memories. You find yourself thinking about those who are no longer with you, as well as, those that you have not heard from in awhile. You extend the olive branch and receive no response to those that have lost communication with you.

In an attempt to keep my sanity during the season,  I began decorating my tree today to get my creative juices to flow.

Oh! Christmas Tree!

The decorations are down from the crawl space of the house. Various red bins are bringing a sense of the season to reality. The season has finally arrived!  Holiday music is playing to create the mood. She begins to drag the first box which is a ginormous white rectangular box with a prelit artificial tree inside. She huffs and puffs as she pulls her tree box towards her living rooms as Michael Buble sings a rendition of Jingle Bells realizing how out of shape she is, but refuses to think about dieting cause she is determined to get her decorating on!

Creative Clips: Girl at Work

As a way of gaining my writing flow. My son suggested that I create snippets of scenarios from different situations in my life. I hope I can regain my creativity and begin to write again. I welcome your feedback. Let me know if I am on the right path.

Girl at Work

She sits during lunchtime, and cannot help but think how much her stomach is grumbling from the hunger pains. She is tending to a candidate scheduled for testing. She is abruptly interrupted by a fellow employee who failed to read, “proceed with caution,” sign placed on the door earlier to alert employees to enter cautiously. The phone rings, it is her fellow employee inquiring about her fish sticks that are cooking in the toaster oven in the office. So many thoughts flutter her mind, and she cannot wait until the day is over so she can go home to start her weekend.
