Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt #162 – Gallivant

Weekend Writing Prompt #162 – Gallivant

Mark was disgusted with both his accounting job and his plain, boring girlfriend. Without another thought for his responsibilities, he quit his job and went gallivanting off to Europe and Asia looking for someone more exotic than his girlfriend of the moment. His job could wait.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 20/2020

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 20/2020

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

This is Teresa Smeigh from www.tessacandoit.com writing under a pen name. I am now using Tessa Dean and my new website/blog is www.tessadeanauthor.com.

Linda’s prompt for the week: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “zz.” Find a word with double-z in it and use it in your post. Enjoy!

When I read the prompt above, three things came to mind: jazzy, snazzy and ZZ Top.

*******

Now I admit jazzy was the first thing to come to mind, but I just couldn’t get much to come about it. I think the music type was Jazz, but I don’t care a lot for that type of music.

ZZ Top was a large part of my life. I loved their music and they are still popular. They were formed in 1969 so I was in my young teens when they appeared on the scene and I followed them and still love their music.

The other word that came to mind was snazzy. Now I know the meaning of the word, but since it was popular in the 1930’s I doubt I used it much. I probably heard my parents say it as they were born in the 1930’s and maybe even my grandparents who were adults in the 1930’s, but it wasn’t a phrase I used.

That’s the extent of my “ZZ” words.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – steroid injection

Coffee, Pen, Notebook, Caffeine, Cup

Hey everyone, this is Teresa Smeigh from www.tessacandoit.com and I am posting on my new blog www.tessadeanauthor.com. I am writing with a pen name now.

Thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting this prompt.

If we were having coffee, for one thing I wouldn’t have coffee as I don’t drink it and it is way too hot anyhow. I am mainly drinking water only or occasionally I will make a pitcher of ice tea. You can choose your poison.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had my steroid injections in the left side of my spine and he will be doing the right side on July 9th. Not quite as painful as the old pain doctor I had.

I would also tell you that we just got word that my 88 year old father, who is in a nursing home due to a stroke two years ago, now is testing positive to Covid-19. He is asymptomatic and feeling quite well.

My aide was here today making up for lost work due to illness Monday and Tuesday. She did my laundry today and tonight I will sleep on a freshly made bed. I always love the feeling of fresh sheets.

I am writing again, both blogging and personally. I am going to enter NANOWRIMO again and hope to start a new book. Maybe one of these days I can finish one. I am trying something new this time as I am outlining for this book. I am a pantser (I write by the seat of my pants) and the outlining is driving me crazy. I am not sure I will ever attempt to do it that way again. I am better just typing what comes into my head. All this planning is not necessary in my mind.

I have a pen name now and a new website/blog at www.tessadeanauthor.com and am busy writing and setting up that blog. I also am on youtube (see link below) now as well, doing a writing channel. I am keeping busy.

The aide has left for the day and I am contemplating taking a nap. I am exhausted. I am used to sleeping all day and now I have to get up early for the days she is here which means very little sleep since I am up until at least 2 AM or later every night.

Be safe everyone,
