Reflection..

I thought I could write a small story before the clock strikes twelve, but I’m not feeling it. There’s nothing there right now. It’ll be back. I know what I did wrong – that’s a great start to do things right. I thought I could put the blog and what I do with it in […]

Afraid in the dark..

Short story Wilbur sat up with a jerk. He’d just moved in and needed a little rest but then he fell asleep. What was is he’d heard? He was sleeping peacefully and was dreaming but then there was this sound that didn’t belong in the dream. What had made that sound? Stomp!! … Stomp!! It […]

Christmas Story 2020 part 2..

Second Sunday of Advent The air in Santa’s office was almost electrical. Shinny Upatree was standing next to Santa’s enormous desk. Mrs. Claus sat in a rocking chair, no longer crying but with at worried expression on her face. Wunorse Openslae and Bushy Evergreen had both been summoned and everybody was talking at the same […]
