Nauseating Filler

I'm working to get back on the "Dystopia" story after losing my stride for week. In the meantime, I'm adding some bits and pieces from another book I'm working on. I hope you don't mind! ************************ "Practice makes perfect" is one of the top-ten most common English language expressions.... Sign in to see full entry.

I Interrupt This Story

This story is a long one in Blog It terms. It's about 4550 words. This will be one of my five short stories for the Rave Reviews Book Club. Yes, it needs some attention in a couple places, but I have fifty more days to finish it. I hope you enjoy it. There is a moral at the end. The Man in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - Part Four

Ted met her outside, figuring that the rising heat would keep her visit short. He had taken four semesters of psychology in college; it was easy for him to recognize that his new friend had a lot of personal issues. Allowing Mary to become comfortable in his home would guarantee a return visit, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - Part Three

Ted awoke to the persistent ringing of his cell phone. He struggled awake, glanced at his alarm clock and saw it was only 7:27 in the morning. He reached for the phone and looked to see who was calling him so early. The name 'Mary Collins' appeared on the screen. Just as he was about to answer it,... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - Part Two

"Will your car start now?" Ted wanted to get home as soon as he could. The odor emanating from his armpits was even offending him. The lady slowly hobbled her way to the driver's door and took a seat in the aging Ford Crown Victoria. He hadn't noticed that she seemed to limp a bit until he saw her... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - The Opening Shot

Ted walked out of the restaurant into the humid Florida night. Although it was substantially cooler than it had been the last three weeks, it was still 84 degrees at nine-thirty. He had been in the Sunshine State for more than five years, but the humidity could still slap him in the face like a... Sign in to see full entry.

I had a late late night last night. I'm going to rest a bit, make a couple of calls and then begin to write my next story. Popular demand has told me they want the 'on the fly' dystopia story about my elderly friend. As the Romans said, "So let it be written, so let it be done." OR I will just say,...

Mindless Blather on Gaslighting

As is so often the case, an idea for a story came to me last night. Actually, I've toyed with this story for at least twenty years, but the actual plot has avoided me until last night. It is a dystopian story to be sure, but not necessarily untrue. I met this elderly woman back in 2008 while living... Sign in to see full entry.

Johnny Robot - Space Alien - Finale

Epilogue Just to be honest, while not always a word for word conversation, much of the dialog between the two main characters actually happened. Johnny is my seven-year-old grandson and has served as inspiration for several stories I have written. He is a very bright and articulate young man who... Sign in to see full entry.
