Friday Fiction: Ivy’s World – Meet The Parents (Part Two)

3

Last week, I started to write about Ivy’s take on her parents. There was a bit of a misconception that Ellen was a Real Housewives of New York type – but really, she’s just kind of girly – not so great at the sporty mom role. Maybe this (two weeks later – sigh) will make…

Last week, Carl made Ellen get real about her Color Magic business plans. And I finally got through those two areas (crystals and Color Magic) that were so connected to my real childhood that they felt impossible to write… Time to switch it up though – I think Ivy should tell us more about her…

Last week, Ellen was outed as an 80′s New Age true believer – but Carl hopes it’s just a phase. He’s more concerned with the toll her Color Magic business may take on their finances… Want to catch up? You can do so HERE. The premise behind Color Magic was that everyone looked best in…

Last week was all about Ellen’s love of color and her history as a budding interior decorator. And her concern that Ivy didn’t inherit any of her good taste… Want to catch up? You can do so HERE. To be honest, Ellen wasn’t overly concerned with Ivy’s future taste level. She tended to be a…

Last week, Ivy’s mother Ellen gave up her macrobiotic diet – but stumbled into Yes! Bookstore (if you read Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and think that sounds familiar – it’s actually a real DC bookstore – or at least was…I’d like to think it’s still there). Want to catch up? You can do so…

Back to being consistent…more fiction on Friday! Last week, I introduced Ivy’s mother Ellen. Want to catch up? You can do so HERE. The concept was very simple – and she could even satisfy Carl at meals by adding a sauce or some meat to his plate. But the big problem was that she kind…

Didn’t get a chance to do any writing on Friday – there didn’t seem to be a minute to sit down. But now I have one, so this is a make up post. Last we left off, Vivi and Ivy had an hour to kill, so they turned on the TV and promptly passed out….

Getting back to doing this on Fridays… Not much transpired in the last installment as it was at least 50% description of the building layout. We left off with Vivi and Ivy arriving at Vivi’s apartment, with their brief hopes of a balcony break-in dashed. Want to catch up? You can do so HERE. In…

Friday Fiction – On Monday: This One’s Kind of a Bridge

This is starting to be a once a month thing…when I planned to make it once a week. So easy to back burner something when you’re really just doing it for yourself. And I have no illusions about that. Seriously – how many people with blogs are interested in reading each others’ fiction? They’re too…

It’s been about a month since I left off with this. Damn giveaways are sucking the life out of me. Seriously though – it’s fun but very time consuming, and my regular posts have suffered a lot. Let’s see if I can get my momentum back (even if no one is reading these – I…
