Assistance on a story or two

I've been having some difficulty getting my muse working, primarily due to extreme fatigue relating to shoulder pain (repair to a torn rotator cuff) and the disruption of life caused by flooding from Hurricane Harvey. I've been so physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted that my muse seems to be on strike. So I've been doing a bit of reading, and I hit a story that is good, but the ending just didn't quite fit me. So my brain locked on a 'what if' - which got me to at least write something. But ....

Flooded - slowing my writing considerably

Well, it's been a while since I've managed to write anything, even on the Whateley site - because we got a bit flooded. As in water in the house. We had co-workers swarm in to get carpet and drywall out - now it's sorting lots of stuff to see what's ruined and what can possibly be saved. I haven't looked at national news in over a week - and it seems like it's been a month! And I haven't felt like writing in over a week, even though I have 2 really interesting stories bopping about in my brain.

"Didn't she say to calm down?" Kim calmly observed as Mike calmly
slowed to forty miles per hour to make a screaming hairpin one-eighty
leading towards the entrance.

"I am calmly getting away from someone who transforms people and
influences thoughts," Mike said back, calmly. "While I still have a brain
and thumbs."

"Go faster," Tucker suggested from the backseat. Calmly, of course.

The Bikini Beach Universe

At first glance, Bikini beach looks like just another water park along the side of the highway in an unspecified, southern coastal city. On second glance, an observer might notice that most of the people going into the park were women, many of them young, scantily dressed, and very pretty.

Kayda 9: Crying for a Dream

by ElrodW

 

On a night as I lay sleeping, in a dream I saw the shore of a distant land where
Promise lay in wait
And I heard the sound of voices of a million hungry souls
Now it comes to me to lead them to the gate

But I am just a man, not worthy of this plan
With a strength that's not my own,
I must rise

Seven seas seven skies
Lightning strikes and brave men die
Tatanka great, Tatanka small
When darkness comes they kill them all,

You take what you want but you don't ask
You're future doesn't lie with things of the past
The search for freedom will never be found
As long as we stand upon this sacred ground

Whateley Academy Gen 2: Looking for artistic help

The Whateley Generation 2 team needs an artist who can help with character sketches for the new main Generation 2 characters. What's in it for the artist? Recognition, bragging rights, some early preview of Gen 2, and we are trying to get at funds together for at least SOME financial compensation. Note - this won't be at commercial rates. We're not that rich - we're all volunteer authors.
