Writing Prompt: An Experimental Diplomat

Someone out there going “Huh?” 😀

I’ve been working on and off with an idea generator. They are not easy things to create. Too much information, and the Muse shuts down. Too little, and the Muse doesn’t even pay attention. So, I’ve been working to create one with several lines. The fun comes in trying to connect up the lines produced into one story.

The new generator has already produced several story ideas for me. As I’m tweaking it again and I come across interesting combinations, I thought I would share them here in case they inspire someone else.

So, here is today’s generated writing prompt:

  • The story is set with an interlude with an argument.
  • The Story involves a bulkhead.
  • Someone is involved in a secret.
  • The story may incorporate an experimental diplomat.

Let me know if it inspires anything!

Writing Prompt: An Experimental Diplomat

The String Weavers (The String Weavers – Book 1)

Kelsey Hale thinks she’s just a typical mixed-up teenager. Everyone feels that way, her teachers assure her. Yet, strange things happen to her, like food disappearing before she can eat it and hearing music no one else hears.

Then a giant flaming bird drops an alien at her feet. Well, good grief, how can you ignore something like that?

Abducted from Earth, the only planet she’s ever known, Kelsey finds herself thrust into the middle of a deadly conflict among alien worlds and parallel universe. She must not only survive herself, but also find a way to rescue her father from a dangerous group with unknown motives.

In the process, she’s confronted by a hidden secret about herself which will shake the very foundation of who and what she thought she was.

And connecting it all are the mysterious Weavers.

Robot Generator Fun

Robot Generator FunI love generators. There are a lot of free ones all over the internet. Robohash is one that creates a new robot for each IP address or from text you provide.

The first image is a robot generated from my IP address. Don’t I look pretty in purple? 😛

Of course I had to try the text input box. The word? Well, I chose a phrase.

“Space Cadet”

Robot Generator FunYes, I know how much that says about me. A pink and purple robot. Strange how the generator picked two of my favorite colors!


Robot Generator FunI have a new release! Introducing the SF romance: Coffee Cup Dreams

She wasn’t supposed to wake up when dead…

During what should have been a simple operation, Tish Douglas died. And yet, she also awoke… in what the doctors called a ‘psi event.’

Despite having no memory of the incident, it means she’s required to go on a life-time course of debilitating drugs designed to reign in her supposedly new psi gifts. She’s left with the option of existing on Earth in a drug-haze, or leave the planet.

When an opportunity for a good paying job on a space station known as Redpoint One is offered, she jumps at the chance. Even though she doesn’t have any experience as a ‘maintenance engineer.’ Even though the station sits in the middle of nowhere, a still-operating construct of a long-gone alien species.

Between pirate attacks, intelligent repair robots, and maintenance emergencies, Tish must find a place for herself.

All complicated by a growing attraction to the one person on the station she can’t have: boss Arthur Getty.
