Writing Workshop: Double Take!

February 2, 2012

4.) Share a photo that was taken of you, that you think really captures who you are. Oh my, I must be feeling bold. But seriously, just like my Bride picture, you can’t really tell this is me. In fact, JenontheEdge, this is the picture that had my friends thinking I was you! The wig and the fact we share the same first name makes it easy to see the confusion. I’m flattered that they think I could be the author of your awesome blog!


Tonks Lives!


This was taken in 2010, about a month before I started blogging, before my world crashed down around me, one year before my diagnosis of PA… this is me. This is the me that wears superhero t-shirts. This is the me that bench presses 110 lbs. This is the me that is evolving this year. I missed her. I’m glad she’s back. 

Writing Prompts:

1.) Last week we covered your Top 10 Life Stories…this week choose one and share all the details.
2.) Are you on Pinterest? Share the last five items you pinned, choose one and let it inspire a blog post.
3.) What were you like in high school?
4.) Share a photo that was taken of you, that you think really captures who you are.

Writing Workshop: The Bride Lives!

October 12, 2011

I’m answering early so I do not miss posting tomorrow. Plus, I’m really excited about this. I’m not a poet but I gave an acrostic a shot and I did a little rhyming. This ties into my Frankenstein collection. I’m holding my very first one. As an English major we had to take a Senior Literary Criticism class in order to graduate. I’m not sure if the teacher always picked Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley or not, but that was the book that year. We had to read the original and the edited version, watch Young Frankenstein and at least one other version (choices included the original and the new one (at the time) Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994) and The Bride starring Sting). Then we had to apply different theories and forms of literary criticism to the work and write a thesis paper. I have collected Frankenstein monsters and the bride ever since. I proudly display them at my front door every Halloween. Please do not be too critical of my poetic attempts!

The Bride Lives! (Halloween 1995)

2.)   Write a poem about a memorable Halloween costume.

The groom had a stand-in, a little nuts

Hair sprayed black and white, standing straight up

Eye liner and painted lips, skin made paler

Black nails and combat boots, no blushing for this bride

Reason to celebrate? Halloween, of course!

Iridescent bat pin on my collar, who is her tailor?

Dreams took MW Shelley on a wild ride

Everything pays homage, Senior Lit Crit is the source.
