Have you ever taken a long cut–as opposed to a shortcut? What I’m referring to is driving around the world to get across the street. Some people call it “taking the scenic route,” or offer the excuse of avoiding heavy traffic, toll roads, or… Continue Reading “California Scheming”
I don’t know how many of you are superstitious, but according to my calendar, today is Wednesday the 13th. I know it doesn’t sound as ominous as Friday the 13th, but hey, just wait a couple of days and Friday will be here. This… Continue Reading “Incognito”
No intro this month—you can breathe a sigh of relief. If you’re new to Friday Flash Fiction, the keeper of bats in the Belton belfrey who posts our photo prompt each week, is Denise “The Purple Menace” Wisoff-Fields. If you’d like to participate in… Continue Reading “Sideways in Paris”

Gifts I received this Christmas included the David Sedaris Masterclass Course on Storytelling & Humor, and a book entitled “642 Things to Write About.” Each page of the book contains at least one short writing prompt and enough blank lines to scribble something on… Continue Reading “Catch & Release”

Finding ways to make words sparkle

Oh, and her matricidal boy genius, come devil spawn.
Or the three people I guilted into reading this blog, whatever.
