Oh applesauce! You might think this is a new episode and I don’t want to tease you… Sorry, but it’s not more of the serial – I’m just telling you about something new.
Cookbook-II Jar of Spooky Things
When I was doing my “Three Things” writing exercise (which inspired our first “interactive” serial) I made a jar filled with things written on strips of scrap paper. I’d draw three bits of paper and write until I had mentioned each of the things. If I was moved to keep writing after I had worked all three into whatever story snippet I came up with, then all the better.
Since this incarnation of the culinary mystery is part ghost story, I’ve wanted to add a spooky element to the random things that drive the tale – your ingredients. But… the truth is, I really have a lot on my plate these days and I couldn’t think of an easy way to add another type of ingredient to our culinary mystery. Then my eyes fell upon my three things exercise jar. So I’ve repurposed the old Mason jar. Now it’s the Jar of Spooky Things.
To ensure that I really do use random ghostly elements, Crystal is on hand to supervise. She has extraordinary supervisory skills. Big-brother Aspen is schedule oriented. He lets me know quite loudly when I’m up past my bedtime. Between the two of them, they usually keep me in line. Well okay, so they have their hands — I mean paws full sometimes.
Next Up – Squash, Ice, Goat’s Milk
Episode-4 will feature the ingredients: Squash, Ice, and Goat’s Milk. Add to that mixture, the Spooky Ingredient – Phosphorescent.
See you next weekend!
