The Smudged Thoughts PictoPrompter! — Episode V

good morning, cyberspace!

Today I have literally nothing to post.

I mean, it’s not that I don’t have any ideas. I have many ideas. Tons of ideas. My brain is a meatball overflowing with ideas. Obviously.

But all of those ideas require time and effort and graphics, and that, my friends, is not something I have at 11:10 on a Tuesday morning.

SO. We’re going to cheating just a little bit and doing a new episode of the PictoPrompter! Because these require minimal effort and yet are still fun. #hallelujah.

So without any further ado, let’s get right into it!Read More »

good morning, cyberspace!

And welcome to the fourth ever SMUDGED THOUGHTS PICTOPROMPTER!!! Now, I know that I haven’t uploaded any of these in forever (and i’m also aware that this is exactly what I said the last time) BUT.

And with both NaNoWriMo and Christmas fast approaching in one hob-gobbled mess that is currently threatening to strangle me with its gnarly fingers, well…Read More »

PictoPrompter: Episode I

Good afternoon, Cyberspace, and welcome to Episode I of the Smudged Thoughts PictoPrompter!!

I am so excited to get this project up and running, and I really hope to get all of my writer friends out there involved! I mean, what better way to grow closer to the writing community than by writing together? Right???

Ah??? Ah???????

Now, as I literally have no clue what I’m doing right now, this will probably end up being one epic fail, but I’m hoping that you guys will just play along and pretend that EVERYTHING IS GOING PERFECTLY FINE, because that is obviously what is going on here.

Okay? Okay!

Now, I’m sure that most of you out there are probably all like, “Wait a minute… What’s a PictoPrompter? What’s going on? Why am I strapped to this electric chair??? WHERE IN THE WORLD AM I??????”

And all of those are wonderful questions! So before we dive straight into this month’s picture, I have prepared this wonderful FAQ section that will hopefully explain this whole enchilada a little bit better…
