Obama vs Clinton, You Write The Ending

So... State Of The Union just happened. Then I read a Washington Post article saying Hillary Clinton has the lead among Democratic candidates for 2016. Hmmm. So, I wonder...

If someone wrote a flash fiction story pitting Obama (now, not eight years ago) in any kind of situation against Hillary Clinton, what would that look like?

Could be interesting... Just thinking aloud, or, online.

Check Out This Cool Writing Prompts App

Writers are always looking for prompts. Am I right?

Well, here's an app I was turned onto recently while attending a seminar on how to incorporate iPads in the classroom. It's called "Prompts - For Writers."

And it's free - for now.

Check it out. I've started using it in my writing classes. When I first walk into class, I pull up a prompt from the app and show it to the class on the projector screen. I give them five minutes to write. While they are doing that, I get everything else ready for the rest of class. 

So... go to your App Store and give it a try!

New Year, New Look

During this time of transition, I have neglected this blog. But, I believe I'm at the point I can revamp it. Bear with me as I try out different looks. I will be back up and running daily soon.

I have a few projects in the works and am excited to share them with everyone. They will include more visuals - including videos.
