1. The crescent moon was smoky in the sky. Hanging in a shrouded mist like a Cheshire Cat's smile. ~ The mist sat low and thick and heavy over the rooftops, whitened by a recent layer of frost. (it was really misty the other day ok) 2. "He shimmied past." "She shimmied up the rain … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 50

1. So I used to work at a toy store (for 4 years). As anyone who has worked retail can tell you, "I've seen some things." It was late. Or it probably wasn't so late. It was fall, so it could have been 4 pm yet it was pitch black outside. And here comes in … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 49

Sometimes clichΓ©s are true. That writers are hermits who don't get enough sun. Cause apparently I have a Vitamin D deficiency (pause: please don't worry, everything is being taken care of and I am fine). My doctor said, "We don't want you getting rickets." Ah, yes, rickets. I could get rickets like a poor child … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 48

1. Red Heart, Ice Mountain is done. What a monster. I finished at 145k words (we're gonna talk about the egregious length in a second) and totally rushed that ending but I JUST WANTED TO GET IT DONE.

The correct version is, "To die will be an awfully … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 46

Dead Man's Curve. The legend. The myth. The moniker. The infamous curve on interstate 90 in Cleveland, OH. While we're all speeding through downtown at 65mph (of course there are those with death wishes hurtling pass at 75mph), suddenly: yellow signs! Lights! 35 mph! Because out of flipping nowhere a curve barely short of 90 … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 44

Hello 2021. Though I'm writing this in 2020 #timetravel 1. It's Christmas day, and my room is sparkling white. I guess all the white paint and white decorations have paid off, because now with the snow falling in swift fluffy flakes outside, every touch of green and every bit of concrete buried, my room feels … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol 41
