Tell me a story! (Contest–3 Winners!)
Tuesday, March 31st, 2020

UPDATE: The winners are…Pansy, Michelle, Colleen, bn100, Jennifer, and Debra!

Here’s hoping you’re all doing well, not going stir-crazy, and that you’re actually taking this stay-at-home stuff seriously! I know it feels like the world is ending, but we can do things to keep connected—aren’t you ecstatic we have things like FaceTime?!

We’ve battened down the hatches. Our only constant concern is my SIL, the cop, bringing the disease into the house. We loaded him with Lysol wipes and hand cleaner. He has his PPE kit. He heads straight to the bathroom after getting home to strip and shower, and his clothes go right into the washing machine. That’s as much as we can do to try to keep the virus out.

My son turned 38 today—my how time flies! Wish I could be with him. I gave him a He-Man blanket. Made his day. That was his hero when he was kid, and he’s a little nostalgic. I had a thing for He-Man, too, but it had more to do with the guy who played him in the movie. Whew! 🙂

Anyways, here’s a game for you! Play and you’ll be entered to win your choice of one of my recent releases. And I’ll pick three winners! Keep safe and have fun! ~DD

Tell me a story!


I bought this little brainstorming tool years ago at some writers’ conference. “Story Cubes” is a brainstorming game. You roll the dice and whatever pictures appear face-up are the ones you use to riff off a story.

Here’s the roll…

Do any of these symbols tell you anything?
You can pick some or use all of them.

    I find myself in the eye of the storm. Communications are out and I find that I am locked in a penthouse with no way out. But I need to quit being a turtle pulling my head in it’s shell in despair. All is not lost. The key to my survival it to enjoy being locked in with the Arrow who has built a beautiful fire to help keep us warm. I can think of other ways to keep warm too.

    I wandered into the strange tall building. Being curious about a locked door, I looked through the keyhole. I saw a turtle running so fast the floor caught on fire below it. Oh no! A fire i thought, as i pulled out my cellphone and called 911. A strange buzzing sound could be heard from the room. When I looked back through the keyhole a bumblebee flew out, faster than an arrow. I wished I had a key to the door… then I tried the handle and it was unlocked. I out out the fire and now have a new pet turtle.

    A private eye gets a call that has him looking into a fire that was at a fancy hotel… this could be the key to unlocking his case and finding Belinda Archer…

    Green Arrow found his turtle sidekick secretly talking on a cell phone in a hotel.

    He was standing in his apartment when he heard the fire alarm. He quickly grabbed his phone and his key and ran out of his apartment to the emergency stairs. When he reaches the street he sees a woman standing on the sidewalk holding a turtle in a tank. Why is she dancing around crying out stop it, stop it? She’s running from a bee! He knew in that moment that he’d been struck by Cupid’s arrow. Love at first sight!

    I blame the bee for the fire. I am a private eye with my office in a many storied building. It was a hot day and the window was open. A bee flew in and landed near my candle. I was so startled that I knocked over the candle and started a fire. IF that was not bad enough, my door was locked and I could not find the key. Fortunately my pet turtle did not mind sharing some of water.
