The Monster Mash

Happy Halloween! I have been a very bad blogger!  My story is a tad delayed because ... well ummm ... because I was playing around in CAS with Halloween stuff (not a good excuse but the only one I have).

The Embrace (A Short Short Short Story)

The following very short story was written for a short story challenge in the EA forum called "A picture is worth a thousand words" (but in this case we only got 500 .. I brought it in at 494). She stood in the store, a scowl on her face, staring holes into the lazy clerk behind … Continue reading The Embrace (A Short Short Short Story)

The Post-Apocalyptic Murkland Starter Challenge: #5 (a short story) Ridge

I wandered into Murkland a few months ago.  I was barely alive and had no assumption of a future.  The atrocity that has been visited upon this land by a ruthless oppressor who sought to dominate by destruction has seemed to burn hopelessness into our world.  The land lies desolate and scarred from his assault.  A … Continue reading The Post-Apocalyptic Murkland Starter Challenge: #5 (a short story) Ridge

The Menace Returns?

Donning some clothing that she appropriated from the employee's lounge,  Evella slips out of Hope Psychiatric Center while grimmy was doing his thing.  She almost felt bad for adding poison to the staff coffee pot.  ALMOST!  She really had nothing against these folks and they had treated her well BUT she had things to do and being … Continue reading The Menace Returns?

Snow and Prince Redux #23a (Special Short Story Edition) The Curfew

"Hello, what are you doing out here alone my dear?  It is very late."  The kindly voice spoke interrupting her sobs.  "I ... I ... I am not allowed to talk to strangers," Rose Red sniffed as she peered up at the lady standing there.  "And I am lost," she wailed.
