The Cave (Picture it & write)

Freezing, numb, and trembling, in the deep-dark recess of the cave, she watched as the night dissolved to reveal first rays of the morning light. The flickers of light chased some of the sadness away, and was replaced with a glimmer of hope. She shuffled her nearly immobile and weakened limbs forward, easing out ofContinue reading “The Cave (Picture it & write)”

Mother Cursed

The girl was twelve and the boy just turned fourteen, when their mother was abruptly taken away.

Steve’s Music Mix Challenge

I discovered Steve’s weekly music challenge  via suzie81 post this morning and I wanted to play. This was a fun way to shake off the stress of the workday.  Admittedly, I do not have much music stored on the cloud or my iPhone, so keep this in mind when you get to the results.  My randomness wasContinue reading “Steve’s Music Mix Challenge”

Quiet Mine

I’ve enjoyed the quiet sounds of the neighborhood while sitting out on the patio, getting words (+2k) on the page in between taking care of domestic responsibilities.  Now I’m running out of juice (battery, energy, and wine), so it’s time to pack it up and call it a night and get things in order forContinue reading “Quiet Mine”

Cheers

  Okay it’s time to crunch some numbers and get a few words in today.  Let’s see where did I leave off, hmmm?  It is kind of hard to remember… after all, I am guilty of scene hopping it’s true.  I have to flush out the scenes or polish them when they strike or IContinue reading “Cheers”

First Encounters

Trudging along very, very slowly but making some progress when I can.  Here is another snippet from Justice and Mating Collides. *** When he reached the open doorway to his office he found the source sitting next to his desk with her back toward him.

Pierced Heart

Perched on a barstool, I focused on the two ice cubes in my 100 proof until they melted away and left me alone with my rambling thoughts and a watered down Scotch. Far off in the distance, I heard a steady rhythm that managed to pull me out of my reverie. It was a classicalContinue reading “Pierced Heart”

Extravagance

Excerpt from Justice and Mating Collides. Previously posted: chapter 1, part 1 In minutes, they were climbing the steep hill, hugging tight turns on a narrow road.

Justice and Mating Collides (Part 1 Sampling)

He stood there frozen, in the small-darkened observation room, peering through the one-way glass into the interview room.  His eyes were riveted to the victim where she sat alone, waiting, under the fluorescent lighting.  Her petite body barely filled the chair she sat in.  Shivering in an upright fetal position, legs drawn up onto theContinue reading “Justice and Mating Collides (Part 1 Sampling)”
