We Return Lost Time

I responded to an interesting ad today. I saw it in the paper, right there next to all of the other usual things being advertised. It was only four words. "We return lost time." Underneath this there was contact information. I read it again. What did that mean? Unable to resist, I got my things and went to the address advertised.

The Most Powerful Girl

"I wanted to slay a dragon, to walk the tallest tightrope, to face danger with unflappable confidence and competence. I wanted to do all of these things, but only managed to do one. I got up, and I tried." We met in the darkness, the glow of the moon the only light in the forest... Continue Reading →

The Anchor of Your Thoughts

We sat next to each other in the sand overlooking the water, both of us thinking, neither of us talking much. We had been this way for what seemed like hours. It was the kind of day I had really needed, the kind where you can put everything aside for a little while. Where the... Continue Reading →

The Unwritten Character

She came unbidden, slipping through the keys and weaving herself into the words. It seemed like she had materialized out of  nowhere, appearing in the pages with no warning, no hint that she would be arriving. An unexpected, and perhaps, if I'm totally honest with myself, unwanted character in a story I thought that I... Continue Reading →

The Girl with No Future

I sat alone, in the dark. Through the window I could see the glow of a streetlight, but it was weak, illuminating very little inside the room. Outside the traffic was gone, nothing but the sound of a drizzling rain to break the silence...nature awakening to retake the Earth while humanity slept. I looked around... Continue Reading →

Beginning at the Beginning

"Tell me about him." My friend looked up from the page she was reading and pointed at a name. "I like this character. Tell me more his background." "Oh he's interesting..." I launched into my explanation, describing the character's role in the book. "Well I know that. I read that." She responded. "I mean, tell... Continue Reading →

The Maze I Built

I watched them from far away, until the sun sank in the sky and finally slipped out of sight. At first glance there didn't seem to be very much that was interesting about them. The scene before me wasn't anything spectacular. No drama, no intense discussions. No fighting or situations in urgent need of solving.... Continue Reading →

The Wheel of Answers

It had been a soul-crushing sort of day. The type of day that makes you question why you continue pursuing your dreams...and not only question but totally reject even the thought of getting back up and trying again. The sky opened up as I was walking home and I entered my house drenched. Too tired... Continue Reading →

The Monster Beside Me

There's a monster that lives in my house. He's not terrifying all of the time, but he is sometimes. He's been around since I can remember, and to be honest, I'm rather used to him. Though I don't think that's a good thing. Because he's not always harmless. He looks somewhat like a creature from... Continue Reading →

Conversations with Fear

I met her at the end of a long winding road. It had not been an easy trip. Thoughts ran through my mind as I traveled down the path. There was anger, sadness and regret. Dozens of things I wanted to say. Questions, accusations...I wanted to yell at her. To ask her why. Why she... Continue Reading →
