Good writer but boy was he nuts!

Guy de Maupassant's head ached less as the carriage slowed. Gloria twirled the tip of his mustache, laughing softly, interpreting the sneer as flirtation. Escorted into the apartment, she froze, back pressed against the closed door. Her eyes darted left to a crow flapping its black wings, right to t...

Re: Finding My Muse

Well that sent me down a pretty interesting ETA Hoffman rabbit hole. Not only was he an actual writer but his story "The Sand-man' inspired Freud to write 'The Uncanny'. But back to your drabble... I know that my interest in horror is somehow associated with my living a very safe and protected ...

Thanks Zeb, my fellow Chicagoan. Your feedback makes a contributor feel good about posting. I wrote this in verse but was not sure how easily it would read.

Good stuff.

Driving Towards the Day

Bringing yourself together this morning, allowing each thought a bid for the day, you negotiate the whole person while bathing, knowing who you'll be when you set on your way. You're passed on the road by searching, splintered faces who peer in cars for some hints or traces. You imagine them plannin...

Interesting story. Also sounds like Napoleon was a bit of a horndog.

It's a Scary World Out There

How she dreaded leaving her apartment! It took years for her to feel safe in the small bubble she created around her home, shielded from the crazies, murderers and rapists in the world. But she got the letter and had to go. She rented a car and set out, a knife tucked in her coat, aware that she mig...

Things looked bad

Things looked bad for us the day all the bees died. Breaking news, 24 hour cycles, reporters chewing on facts in every language known to man. All implications were grim and reality followed with well practiced riots, fires, bombs. The ground shook. Global rain began to burn us. Burned through everyt...

Chateau Papa

I savored roaming the vineyard alone, picking grapes for my private reserve of red wine. Papa planted the vines when he was quite young. By the time he was my age, he walked these rows with a grandchild in tow. Over time he taught me everything needed to run his premium winery. Papa was round, with ...
