Have You Ever? #submission #iamwriting #publishing

So you’ve submitted an article, a story, your masterpiece to X, Y, Z publishing. It’s your 1st, 10th, 100th…. submission. Anxious, nail biting, calm resolve like after the first date. Will I get a call? What will I do while I wait? It’s a good story. No Great! It’s not the money (never has been).Continue reading “Have You Ever? #submission #iamwriting #publishing”

A Dark Night #noir #poetry #EdgarAllenPoe

Gather my last notes sleep never so desired always more elusive more muddied in the mire against eyelash moth fluttered taunting at my face stopping for full moments slumber could not erase those errant memories pass me, you and I never have I slept since the day you died  fingers momentary clasp about my throatContinue reading “A Dark Night #noir #poetry #EdgarAllenPoe”

A to Z and Back Again #atozchallenge

As so many, I am writing a succinct reflection on the 2015 A to Z Challenge. Each year I have a different focus: this year’s primary focus was to high- light several friends who (I think) are gifted writers. I also wanted to share about a poetry book (A Song for Liberia) that will be publishedContinue reading “A to Z and Back Again #atozchallenge”

Zilch, Zophiel, Zero… #atozchallenge

Zilch, is all’s I ever got. My wife, the harpy, continually nags me to take her places. I thought, “Peru is some place.” The Inca ruins were breathtaking. All I heard was, “The mountains are freezing. So I bought Marjorie a coat made from  mountain goat’s wool. Later that day, we climbed to Machu Picchu.Continue reading “Zilch, Zophiel, Zero… #atozchallenge”

“W” Wild Game by Newt Livesay

Maybe this should have been titled ” What the cat dragged in.” If you are stewing over how to get rid of that pesky corpse, a drive into the back country may be worth your while: A boyhood friend of mine whom I spent many hours playing cowboys, army or camping out in the backContinue reading ““W” Wild Game by Newt Livesay”

“V” is for Violet by Newt Livesay #atozchallenge

She used to be sweet as violets now she’s jut the fat girl that you cant wait to get rid of. So the question is, “how?” You know if you shoot her there would be ‘stuff’ everywhere and after watching over three hundred hours of COPS you know all about good ‘stuff.’ You just needContinue reading ““V” is for Violet by Newt Livesay #atozchallenge”

Missed by Leslie Moon #atozchallenge

It’s a messed up place.  “NewCago – the metropolis of the golden age.” Ha – It was a great city ’til something went wrong.  What were they were thinking when they reconstituted  Julius Caesar’s DNA. Wouldnt you expect –  senseless killings, women enslaved , children given as offerings?  I can still see it – blood on the streets. OneContinue reading “Missed by Leslie Moon #atozchallenge”

“L” Lust by Matt Harrill

The hawk-eyed man watched them cross the room while he toyed with the woman he had chosen in his dance of lust. The couple had fallen from his spell, their faces scared, the clarity of the alien situation thrust upon them. He realized he himself had become caught up in the moment, and regretted hisContinue reading ““L” Lust by Matt Harrill”

“K” is for Klan by Matt Harrill

They passed without incident through the rest of New Market, pulling onto the interstate and resuming their journey south. Eva let the tension build for half an hour or so while observing the man. Madden was right; she could see what he meant. As with those they had seen before, this man looked to beContinue reading ““K” is for Klan by Matt Harrill”

“J” Jump by Matt Harrill

The lights in the hangar faded as the front hangar doors opened. The planes came alive, engines whining, and began to taxi out of the hangar onto the runway. From her vantage point, Eva watched the small planes, capable of seating no more than six people each, crawling along the asphalt. The first turned andContinue reading ““J” Jump by Matt Harrill”
