Getting Through February

I've come up with a homegrown remedy to get me through February, and keep me writing at the same time. I have a bunch of watercolors I painted—each one I chose because I found it evocative in some way. So, I’m going to brave it and write a piece of flash fiction to go with a few, and try to keep it up for the next few weeks. If you’ve visited my Website,, and there is a painting in particular that you’d like me to use, leave a comment or e-mail me. Or, if you’d like to write your own, I’d love to hear it! I’m not saying there will be prizes involved, like a free print (on really nice 140lb Arches Infinity watercolor paper), but I’m not saying there won’t, either.

Tomorrow, I shall start with a popular painting that I’ve posted here before: Deb’s Kitchen.


  1. I rather like the colors of Moorings....


  2. Yes, me too, Simon. It definitely paints a mood...I'll have to ponder something away from Story for a Shipwright...

  3. This is exciting! February is one of my least favorite months. This will help me get through it, too. :)

  4. Amazing what we'll do to try and psyche ourselves through the month of February! I hope to post at least 2 or 3 a week...and then there will be prizes, but don't tell...
