Cometh What May Open thread


 Come what May our works are in progress.  Summer is near as the days get warmer and the mornings are best here before you get to work.  May it be a productive day!

We writers keep a note pad or idea box wherever we go.   If something is said in a certain way, it is also written down for possible later use.  While scientists have "Labs"  I call the world around me
 my "Lab."

Think outside the box, read someone else's work, a book, take 
a walk, go to a festival. I hear the Renaissance Festivals are in full swing now.

Don't worry about the critiques, there are good ones and terrible ones, but some
where you least expect it from. 

Remember your creativity is yours alone
May you create to the best of your ability.
Some projects take a lot of time

For the Star Wars Fanatics this month or 
forever be one with the Force.  
Let the story simmer some more

To create a strong ending

Be who you are, all the time and creativity   
It will set you free.

Dream, reflect and tap into that subconsciousness

Be eccentric, be you

All great works of art take time on their path.  Stay on the path,

Remember, it is your story, your work of art. 

Spend a time with us for tea or coffee,
whichever is your fancy!

Let it pour from the brush or 
the pen, be in your element.   Great projects take time, late nights, revisions, looking for the right angle of the project, to repaintings, reconstructions for others to enjoy. Be you, stay creative!

Words & Brush Recipe Corner: Zucchini Carrot Fritters


Zucchini Carrot Fritters 

I love these fritters. Okay fine, they’re latkes, but who says you can’t combine our holidays? Honestly, they use way less oil than latkes and are really great for breakfast or to take for lunch on the go. Plus they’re great all year long.

Yields a dozen fritters.


  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 onion
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 large or 4 medium eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying

Shred the zucchini onto a clean towel, and let sit for 10 to 20 minutes. In the meantime, peel and shred the carrots and onion and place in a mixing bowl. Roll up the towel of shredded zucchini and squeeze out any excess water over the sink, then add the zucchini to the carrots and onion. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well.

In a frying pan, heat about ¼ cup of olive oil. Use a slotted spoon to put the zucchini mixture into the pan. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Remove the paper towels before storing in the fridge. Serve warm or at room temperature at home, on a picnic, or an outing.

      • Enjoy
