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.

For hours we  sat, without speaking. When I'd arrived I'd greeted her, quietly. And she'd smiled and nodded. She had seemed happy to see... Continue Reading →

The River of Memory

All around me the eerie light played against the walls of the cave as I walked towards the dark river. I could only see a few feet ahead of me, could see nothing but the glow of the water and the dim outline of the boat.  When I reached it, I didn't hesitate. I stepped... Continue Reading →

Tea and the Tiny Voice

It was close to 3 in the morning when I finally left the computer and headed downstairs. I still felt awake, even though I knew that I should go to sleep soon. Thinking that some tea might help me fall asleep, I headed into the kitchen. I opened the door to enter and then immediately... Continue Reading →

The Trail of Hearts

It was early afternoon, the sun filtering through the trees as I walked along the path. It had been a very long time since I had come this way. The things one might encounter traveling here were frightening--they were never far from my mind. I remembered this path, although the memory was hazy. This was... Continue Reading →
