Random Reader ThingsA Ghost n His Gold

Most of you are familiar with multi-talented author, Roberta Eaton Cheadle.  She was inspired by the previous set of things when she left these.  So, I held them in the wings until I could use the two sets consecutively.  Robbie’s things are:wine glass, silk rose, and chocolate cake.

Last time Ali Baba and Dilly found Fang.  We assumed he went to rescue the Calutron Girls. However, it seems he disguised himself…

Door to Author Mind 2022, Image collage by TeaganImage collage by Teagan

Welcome to my sanctuary everyone, whether you are a reader, writer, blogger, “Doors” aficionado or something else.  As you see by the title, my post is doing double duty again, but what the heck? I’ve always been a multi-tasker.  I’ve had too many challenges and bad dreams lately, so you’ll see that the inside of my mind is a rundown looking mess (the images).

The topic on my author mind today is Being Indie.  I’ve wanted to write this post since the moment a couple of months ago when my neighbor asked me this question:  

“We know that you write books and take care of your house… But what do you DO all day?”  

I was so stunned by the huge emphasis on “do” that I honestly didn’t have a good reply.  Although, I didn’t really get an opening to try and…

Random Reader ThingsPete Springer they call me mom

Some of you know educator and author, Pete Springer. We haven’t seen him here very often, but when this serial began, he left three really fun random reader things. Pete’s three things inspired three complementary things from Robbie Cheadle.  I’ve been holding back until I could use their two sets together.  Robbie’s will follow next time. Pete’s things are: brothel, toilet paper, and a B-29.

Yes, my post is doing double duty again.  I’m flattered that Robbie Cheadle liked my post about My Author’s Mind enough last week that she used the theme.  I think she’s doing the same this week, so be sure to pop over and visit her blog.  Anyhow, that caused us to start talking about how we compartmentalize our thoughts and ideas so we can work on multiple concurrent writing projects.

Robbie said she sees her mind as having rooms for the various ideas.  Sometimes I think of my brain similarly.  At other times I think of my mind as a dark windmill with cobwebs in the endless corners where the stories are.

You’ve reached The Armadillo Files… the serial is hopping toward its conclusion.  If you’re wondering what’s next, please take a look at my previous post.  I put out a call to photographers and artists.  You might want to participate.

Random Reader Things

New Mexico’s Tim Price and I have been following each other since almost the beginning of my blogging days.  Tim’s “three things” added fun to this new episode.  Those things are:rotary phone, S&H Green Stamps, and adding machine.

Previously in The Armadillo Files

When Dilly and Fang “landed” in a cave in tenth century Bagdad, they ran afoul of Ali Baba’s wicked brother, Cassim. He and a traitor who works with the evil organization, Tumult, will try to sell the Calutron Girls into slavery, if our heroes don’t stop them.

Fang and Sesame went…

How’s that for a post title?  Yes, it’s mindboggling — and yes, I couldn’t decide what day to post, because I had many things to mention, but not a lot to say about any of them.  Ha!

For those of you who are relatively new here, I’m the founder of “The Three Things Method of Storytelling.” I established this blog by writing serial stories where I ask readers to leave three random things, which drive the spontaneously written, utterly unplanned stories.  In return I feature links to that blogger when their things show up in an episode.  Plus, it lets the reader take an active part in the storytelling.

My current serial, The Armadillo Files will end in five weeks.  (Characters behind the door above: front row left to right: Henry Apesley (hiding behind the wall), feline pilots Peggy Sue and…

Random Reader ThingsFerryman Sea Witch D Wallace Peach

You probably know the stunningly talented D. Wallace Peach aka Diana from multiple fantasy series and her marvelous blog.  If you haven’t read The Ferryman and the Sea Witch, get it quick, because she’ll be launching something new before too awfully long.  Her three random reader things are: color TV, jumpsuit, and (no you are not mistaken…) Grandma’s underwear.

Previously in The Armadillo Files

Last time we learned several things, so I hope you were paying attention.  In tenth-century Bagdad, it turned out that Ali Baba’s wicked brother, Cassim is involved with the dastardly deeds.  He didn’t kidnap the Calutron Girls, but he’s behind the plot to sell them as slaves. We also learned that the culprit behind the abductions is Klaude Frucht.  After WWII he was convicted of selling…

Downright mystified by the amount and variety of written and image products I constantly finished at work, a former boss asked me a question more than once.  “How can you quiet your mind, and write?”  

The idea of me having a “quiet mind” made me laugh.  It’s nothing like the image…

You’ve reached The Armadillo Files… and we’re back!  Thanks for bearing with me while I finished “Dead of Winter.”  Now back to the free story.

Random Reader ThingsTeri Polen The Insurgent

You might remember Teri Polen from her annual October event, Bad Moon Rising.  She recently launched the second installment of “The Colony” series, The Insurgent.  Early in this serial she left “three things” and they helped guide this new episode.  Those things are: Cookie jar, grenade, and bobby pins.

Previously in The Armadillo Files

In tenth-century Bagdad, Fang and Sesame went looking for the weasel that stole the timey-wimey whatsit that was supposed to slow down Dilly’s transformation. Although we don’t know into what she might turn.  Meanwhile, Dilly waits alone… except for Ali Baba’s 40 ferrets.

If you need to refresh your memory, you…
