Index-card-a-day: Taxi & Periodic Table

Here we go. Index-card-a-day challenge for the last two days. Using 4″ x 6″ cards.

#6: Taxi  

My wizards do not allow a ferry to bring people to their island, so the journey is by boat or by dragon (or the few magic doors). Used patterned and plain papers, gel pen, double-sided foam, matchstick, gel pen, dried up ink pad, willpower.

#7: Periodic Table

What? Yes, that’s what I pondered for days leading up to this one. So here we have a periodic table which has somehow come through the magical barrier. Used cut out magazine hand, cardstock, paper, teabag, gel pen, printed periodic table.

Yes, folks – surprise, surprise – magic is failing. I didn’t think I really needed to know the mechanics of that until the next novel. But, when I drew the map last week, the limits magically materialized. Bingo. Now I can foreshadow it, as I should.

The coming week is interesting – the prompts are all foodstuffs.

I hope the Aussies have had a nice long weekend for the Queen’s Birthday. Does anyone else celebrate this on this weekend? Well, I don’t actually even think of the Queen, let alone think of birthday wishes – but I love the holiday.

Saturday was our 23rd wedding anniversary, but I don’t really count that either. We actually began living together 25 years this coming Christmas. To me, that’s our real anniversary.

Have a nice day / evening. ❤


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Congrats – on everything. It’s funny what we count as the “start”. For me, it was the day I fell in love, then when we moved in together, then when we married, and every year after his death is another “should have been”.


      1. You too, and your sister. Sometimes I let myself “wallow” a little in the “should haves”, but I know it is not healthy to stay there for very long. Getting older makes me a little wiser. 🙂
