Tuesday Night News…

It's time for my Tuesday various and sundry update on what I deem pertinent information. I'm participating in the latest writing contest, hosted by Size Riot, and despite the problematic theme voted into existence by some of you. That topic is Big Couples, giant people with a normal-sized person, or a normal couple with a... Continue Reading →

Happy Independence Day!

Imagine for a moment that on a day like today, you are very small. You love your country. No matter who you are, no matter who you voted for, no matter what your crazy ideology is, you truly believe you know what’s best. But it doesn’t matter what you think because you are very small...

Chalk Line

You, down there, sprawled on the floor, probably know that clearly delineated line that separates pain from pleasure, as advertised by that Friday night feeling of Now You Get To Drink, and you know exactly how much you can drink before you get sick. Is it eight shots? Nine? Fourteen? Once I did four shots... Continue Reading →

The Love Program

She sat in front of the TV watching every channel come to life and then flicker away. This went on for a while until her pet robot tilted his head towards her, and did that staring thing that annoyed her a great deal. "Focus on channel surfing, Toy. Don't look at me." "Owner, I can...

Gentle April 2018

Remember the best time of last year, when I ran Gentle April 17? During that period of time, there were zero deaths, a billion hugs took place, and no one cried except with joy at the wonderful stories that were produced. Now it's time to let love reign again. It's time for Gentle April 18.... Continue Reading →

Confession

Some of my ideas for vignettes are sparked by Tweeter discussions. At some point near the end of last year, I not only decided to write more but to keep better track of my writing ideas with notes, screen caps, sketches, whatever it takes to solidify my story ideas long enough to get them written....

I love you

Her feet were used to the path, and she relied entirely on muscle memory as she turned her legs this way and that, and lifted her feet to avoid this parked car, that power line, that neighborhood child. She didn’t have to look down to weave past the family homes in the residential area where... Continue Reading →

Cruel January 2018

Remember this thing? It's time to woman up again, whether or not I want to or feel ready. I don't want to and I don't feel ready, but I'm going to participate anyway. I don't read Cruel stories and I don't like to write them, but ideas are in my head, so I'll enter them...... Continue Reading →

Sumbitch

Nearly nine years I've been working on this post. I started it and then pedaled back; restarted and deleted it once more. And again, a few times. I'm not sure where I'm going with it now, but I have thirty-three drafts waiting to be completed as blog entries, and this one, being one of the oldest,... Continue Reading →

Scheherazaded

I don't usually reuse collages for different posts, but I don't see the blog police anywhere around here. This came to me while I was thinking of something completely different, and is soon to become a major motion story. As in, my fingers will be moving in a major way. During NaNoWriMo. * * *...

Bitter

And so you shrank me And left me here Alone with you Who gets to sleep So I get up from between your sheets or panties or feet And I climb down the side of that mountain you insist on calling bed And I spit in your food Just a drop or two And so... Continue Reading →

Shrink

“I like going to that ramen place on Tate.” “We can go there tomorrow.” “I wanted to go to Comic con on Friday. It’s a two-hour drive, and I wanted to get there early.” “We’ll see what I have planned for the weekend. I’d like to go to the Air Show instead.” “I had already... Continue Reading →

Calm

“Why am I stretching?” “Shh...” “It’s not as though I’m going to get any taller.” “Please, be quiet.” “I don’t like yoga.” “That’s not yoga. We’re not doing yoga.” “Then what are we doing?” “We’re relaxing.” “Can’t we relax indoors?” “Do you know why I brought you to the beach in the middle of October?”... Continue Reading →

Need

He sat on her chin, making a distinct effort not to laugh every time she tried to peer at him over the summit of her nose. Her eyes crossed before she closed one, then the other, trying to look around each of her nostrils to catch a blurry glimpse of his tiny shape. Why she... Continue Reading →
