#SoCS Dec. 5/2020 – List

Linda’s #SoCS Prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “list.” Make or talk about a list. Enjoy!


Time to talk lists.

I’m a Virgo, I love lists.

Lists help me get through all sorts of situations from work-related issues and to-do jobs, and home ones too, like shopping lists, or packing lists for when we go away.

But my biggest, constant list is my TBR (To Be Read) list.

I have less unread physical books, so my ones to read are in a bag, usually by my bedside, but currently at my inlaws house, as we pack bits and bobs up ready for whenever that dream house comes along. That’s my TBR pile.

My list, and I have a proper list written out, (or typed, actually) of my e-books currently on my Kindle, is LOOOOONG!

It’s got the ARCS from NetGalley that I have to read, and all the other books I have purchased over the last few years, that haven’t been read yet. In the hundreds, it is…

Then there is the wishlist on my Amazon account. All the books I like the look of, but won’t buy until the rest of the list calms down…

Did I mention that I love a good list?

How many books on your TBR pile or list?

December 3: Flash Fiction Challenge – Raksha Bandhan

Charli’s Carrot Ranch 99-word Fiction Challenge:

December 3, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes family traditions. It can be related to any holiday or situation. How does the tradition impact the story or change the character? Go where the prompt leads!

Raksha Bandhan

Nalini scowled at Rakesh.

Stupid baby.

Her nine-year-old heart hadn’t quite come to terms with this mewling infant thrust upon her, when her mother’s expanding belly suddenly deflated.

He was taking up everyone’s time and attention.

Usually, the whole family doted upon her, but recently, it was all “The baby this, the baby that.”

“Come on Nalini, time to tie a rakhi on Rakesh. Lucky girl. You finally have a brother to bless.”

Sacred thread tied, she went to turn away, when her mother called her back. “Don’t forget your gift.”

A gift? He wasn’t so bad, after all.

Bookapalooza 2020! #MyBookTribe & a #BookSale

Hey there, Peeps!

I’m really excited to announce that I will be a part of a huge event taking place on Facebook, in one of my favourite reader groups, My Book Tribe.

This weekend, however, the authors have invited a selection of different authors to take part in Bookapalooza, a huge 24 hour window of giveaways, and a chance to get to know new to you writer, and guess who has been asked to take part?


So, if you fancy joining a group of readers, and wonderful authors, and having the chance to win book goodies, head over to My Book Tribe and request to join. Click the link below.


Been there, done that… I’ve even got the T-shirt!

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 34: Nativity

Ronovan’s Decima Challenge: Use Stable in the D rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image
 Mary and Joseph made their way
 She on a donkey, him by foot
 He felt that they should just stay put
 But listened to what He had to say
 Weary Mary began to pray
 The pressure told her time was nigh
 She needed somewhere she could lie
 Late they arrived at the stable
 Held on ‘til she was unable
 The night pierced by a baby’s cry
