The Escapist Coloring Club – June 2019 mid-month reminder

It’s the middle of June already, so here’s your mid-month reminder to get colouring! You’ll find the links for the two bloggers who have participated already this month below. Make sure you check them out! I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the June 1st prompt to link your entries there, if you haven’t already posted. Or if you have, feel free to leave another link!

Here’s what I’m working on this month. I’m half-way through it, so I should have it all coloured in by July 1st.

I’m loving the fact that I can listen to an audiobook while I work. I just finished Neil Patrick Harris’s Choose Your Own Autobiography. So funny. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Here’s the link, if you’re interested in buying it. I highly suggest listening rather than reading.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/0385347014

Anyhoo, back to colouring.

The Escapist Coloring Club – April 2019 mid-month reminder

Here we go again, only a few days short of the end of the month. My intentions were good, but my body was weak. Still, here’s your before-the-end-of-the-month reminder and general highlighter of all the posts that have been linked to the April 1st prompt. Make sure you check them out! I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the April 1st prompt to link your entries there, if you don’t want to wait for May 1st.

Here’s what I’m working on this month. I think I’m going to get it finished.

The Escapist Coloring Club – March 2019 mid-month reminder

I know, I know, there’s only a week left to go before April gets here. But I’d like to take the opportunity to remind everyone to get their projects done and their links in, and to give a shout out to the bloggers who have joined in so far this month. They’re all so awesome! Make sure you check them out! I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the March 1st prompt to link your entries there.

Here’s what I’m working on this month. I’m about halfway through it: all I’ve coloured so far is the dragon and the crown. I’m still hoping to get it finished in the next week.

#SoCS – Abashed

I’m abashed to realize that I am, again, late to my own bash.

Meaning my prompt.

‘Coz I ain’t gonna make it before midnight.

But I needed a break. Alex has finally gone to his dad’s for the weekend, for the second time this year, and I’ve spent most of the day either working or catching up on the things I needed to get done.

Did I get a break? I got a break from the pressure I usually have hanging over me … but to really take a break,

you’d have to bash me over the head and drag me away.

What I need is an honest to goodness vacation.

Somewhere I have no access to social media,

somewhere that the sky is blue, the beach is warm, the sea spread out before me with waves glittering under the sunlight,

somewhere I can close my eyes.

And drift away, without a care in the world.

Hell, I’d even take a dingy hotel room in the middle of a strange city at this rate.

Tokyo is strange.

Why did the angry chicken cross the road? To get away from KFC …?

The Escapist Coloring Club – February 2019 mid-month reminder

Hey there! I’m a tad late for a mid-month reminder, but I’d like to take the opportunity to highlight all of the great bloggers who have joined in so far this month. I’ll turn off the comments in this post and redirect you to the February 1st prompt to link your entries there.

Here’s what I’m working on this month. It’s coming along, slowly but surely. I hope to finish it in the next 10 days.

#JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 30th, and One-Liner Wednesday

When you realize that you said and heard many one-liners in the last week and you should have written at least one down because you’re gettin’ old and forgetful.

Here’s a random picture of summer, so I can remember what grass looks like.


Here are the general rules to follow for Just Jot it January:

1. Just Jot It January starts January 1st, but it’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list) counts as a “Jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

2. I’ll post the daily prompts at 2am my time (GMT -5), every day except for Saturday’s Stream of Consciousness (SoCS) prompt–you’ll find that one on Friday morning at 9:30am. That daily post (i.e. this one) will be where you leave your link for others to find in the comment section. There will be a prompt for every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday.

2a. Since today is Wednesday, I challenge you to make your JusJoJan post a one-liner. If you don’t care to, or if you’ve already written your post, no problem. Remember, with One-Liner Wednesday you can write anything – it’s only a prompt to write one line, not necessarily to keep to the same theme as mine. The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

(i) Make it one sentence.

(ii) Make it either funny or inspirational.

(iii) Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

(iv) Enjoy yourself!

(v) Use our One-Liner Wednesday badge.

3. As long as your blog is on WordPress, you’ll be able to link via pingback. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! If you’re participating from another blogging host, just drop a link into the comment section. Note: The newest pingbacks and comments will appear at the top.

4. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

5. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

6. The prompts are here both to remind you and to inspire you to write. However, you don’t have to use the prompt word of the day. You can link any kind of jot back here. Note: If it’s 18+ content, please say so in a comment with your link or close to your pingback.

7. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge so that others can find your post more easily.

8. Have fun!

I do love taking photos with reflections. I think these reflect that:

I suppose I must also like taking pictures of water.
