[Mostly] Wordless Wednesday (Klingon Rock) & Helpful Links

Stephen Tremp will be guest posting tomorrow, so I will be posting the Thursday helpful links today, following the [Mostly] Wordless Wednesday photo.

In celebration of my first ever time as a chaperone on one of my son's field trips, today's [Mostly] Wordless Wednesday is representing the place we'll be going: Garden of the Gods! I've previously posted a photo of one of the shapes I like to seek out. This one is no different:

I like to call this one Klingon Rock, because I see a specific kind of profile. It doesn't necessarily look like a Klingon, but that's what came to mind anyway. Or a dinosaur.

Now for the links!

Ladies, it's time to get your horror on! Dark Moon Books is taking submissions for a women's horror anthology, written by women, any horror subject. Click the link for guidelines.

THIS sounds interesting to me. I would like to note that I have not done research on this and can't swear to the validity. It is a three-month residency project for writers, where you would live in a writer-friendly building with other writers somewhere in L.A. There are costs involved.

Funny Books is taking submissions for a My Funny Road Trip anthology. This is a non-paying anthology.

I'm too old to participate in this one (I can't tell if I'm offended or amused by that), but social platform Ether is holding a contest for short stories, flash fiction, essays or poetry, less than 3000 words. There is an app for people to vote for the winner, who will then get a contract with Ether. You must be 18-25 years old to enter.

That's all for today! Tomorrow I will be posting my Getting to Know You Post on the A to Z Challenge Blog. Want to know something shocking about me? Check it out!

What do you see in the rock formation above? Any helpful links you want to pass along?

May you find your Muse.


  1. Hah, rocks like that remind me of every alien planet in every sci-fi show ever. Star Trek is so awesome ^_^

    Thanks for the links!

  2. I loooove finding shapes in the rocks at the Garden of the Gods! My favorite is the Siamese Twins. They look like Kermit the Frog from a certain angle.

  3. I really like rock climbing, though I never notice the shapes that the rocks form. I'm going to try to start noticing that on my next trip.

  4. I see Pumpkinhead. (Watched too many horror films.)

  5. Miss Cole, doesn't it? It's not necessarily Klingon, but it definitely looks like some sort of alien creature!

    KC, now I have to go look for Kermit!

    Gina, it's definitely fun to pick out the shapes. Then again, I am typically hitting the park with two littles in tow, and that's an activity they can get behind.

    Alex, haha! I need to go check out Pumpkinhead. I've known of the movie, but I actually don't think I've ever seen it. Hrm.

    Andrew, agreed on that one, too! And with the trees there, it looks a bit like it's eating some foliage.

  6. I sort of see an armadillo.

    Thanks for the links.

  7. That rock immediately reminded me of... hm... well, something. I know what you mean. I thought of a lizard. Weird.

    Thanks for coming by my blog, good to meet you !

  8. Medeia, I am trying to see the armadillo!

    Jenny, great to meet you, too! I can definitely see lizard.

  9. I love Garden of the Gods. I drive past or through it every chance I get. In the summer they do Segway tours, and the tour guide shows you all the shapes you never knew were there.
