Temple of the Free (Prince Dream #6)

December 29, 2017 I was walking up the street in what looked like our old neighborhood in Monrovia, California with a woman who looked Asian or South American. She had light brown skin, almond-shaped eyes, and straight black hair. She walked beside me quietly, hands clasped behind her back, rather pensively. She was a slenderContinue reading “Temple of the Free (Prince Dream #6)”

Challenge Accepted!

I signed up for The Write Practice 7-day Writing Challenge, in which the goal is to write  1,000 words a day for 7 days. I feel confident I can complete this challenge because it is shorter. Longer challenges like Nanowrimo overwhelm me to the point of paralysis, but I can manage writing 1,000 words in 7 days. IContinue reading “Challenge Accepted!”

Who Got the Keys? (Prince Dream #5)

December 6, 2017 Last night I dreamed of Prince again. It was an overcast day. I was milling about in a crowd at a craft fair, looking at items on a folding table.

It was soft jazz music, I think. I was lying almost on top of Prince and he had his arm was wrappedContinue reading “The Dye Job (Prince Dream #3)”

Prince Bearing Gifts… (Prince Dream #2)

January 2, 2017 Before I went to sleep last night, I prayed, well I asked Prince, Octavia, God, Yemoja anyone to help me with my writing—to help me see a story through to completion. Well! Last night I had another Prince dream. He was wearing all white suit with a white cashmere trench coat andContinue reading “Prince Bearing Gifts… (Prince Dream #2)”

The Spaceship (Prince Dream #1)

Sunday, October 9, 2016 Last night I dreamed I was a terrestrial time-traveler.  Well, not really time travel, it was like we could move from place-to-place by going to sleep in what appeared to be a motel room.  Different rooms, of course.  I say “we,” but I don’t remember who the others were. The lastContinue reading “The Spaceship (Prince Dream #1)”
