Somehow I seem to have fallen out of fictional inspiration lately, having difficulties finding the time and inspiration to focusing my mind on it.
It is still my hope and intention to some day get back to the Wordzzle game and finish off The Slumber Party Mystery story.

The Slumber Party Mystery
Chapter 37 - Love is a many splendored thing

William, late on Saturday afternoon, was still stuck at the grocery store, unloading trucks and handling costly goods marked "organic" and with some strange symbols he took to be Chinese signs. His boss was just watching from behind his glass windows and acting inspector, looking very smug and not even rising from his chair. William in the meantime was getting naughty thoughts of practical jokes but realized that any such attempts would only get him into more trouble. Finally his hour of liberation came, and he was allowed to go home and watch the DVD he had rented: Love is a many splendored thing.

Diana was sitting in her room making a charcoal picture, but she had problems quite catching the nature of the beast she was drawing. In her head she could hear the voice of her friend Sandy saying: "All men are such braggarts!" Diana threw the picture aside and started on another identical one. It struck her that her vacation would soon be coming to an end and there were decisions to be made. 


  1. Brilliant to use the challenge words in a grocery store setting! They go together so well!

  2. The mystery of is there a mystery continues. we get hints but no substance.
    Great writing.

  3. You always astonish me with how easily you weave the words into your story. I had forgotten all about poor William. Congrats on your Wordly Efforts blog.

  4. Love the look of the new blog. You got the words woven in so well too. DrJ is not alone in wanting to see how the mystery - if there is one - plays out.

  5. WE dragons are curious about those decisions. You write so well.Even though we don't know where your going it is fun to come here.

  6. Nice new blog to go with the great writing!

  7. I am sorry I am late but became ill after putting my name on Mr Linky.
    Everything seemed to fit so well.
