Re: Blood, Sweat, and Irrigation

The first draft was soy beans. I forgot I changed it during the process of making the word count match up.

Re: Blood, Sweat, and Irrigation

Oh yeah, they did conserve people's water in Dune. I was more inspired by the major lack of moisture and associated stresses in the western U.S. (even though soy beans are more of a midwest thing)

Blood, Sweat, and Irrigation

Mason cracked a beer and sat down at his kitchen table. It had been a long day in the fields, and he wanted to relax for a moment before cleaning his implements. He felt a twinge of guilt about how he had treated his day laborers and their families, but he felt the health of his corn was more import...

Goin' for the Record

My brother won't push me. He says it isn't safe, but he just wants to keep the record. Perfect conditions: snowed, melted, refroze. So slick. “Bail out before the road,” he calls. Sore loser. No cars. Barrel right through to the other side. One more short downhill. Now to coast as far as possible. I...

Briar Rose Overslept

Clarence King Jr., the renowned archaeologist, entered the chamber. The air tingled with faded fairy magic, and he could see a skeleton in royal dress sunk into the moldering remains of a feather bed. He leaned over to examine the specimen, slipped, and crashed forward. His face brushed up against t...

Re: A Lost Soul

Thanks for the feedback. It was definitely flawed. Too much dialogue versus the description. I also went back and found I didn't have 100 words after my last edit, mistake there too. This should be more to order, too bad I can't manage it with a first post. Adam and Karen sat in Centennial Park. The...

A Lost Soul

Adam and Karen sat at the fountain's edge, looking at the Angel of Lost Souls. “This was Selene's favorite place,” Karen said. “I miss her.” “Have they tracked down her boyfriend?” “No, but what could we say, we never even meet him. All we know is she called him 'my angel.' It's crazy, but I know sh...

Each time one of our stomachs growl, we both look over to where Billy used to sit, then back at each other. Lifeboats suck.

The existentialist was suicidal, but he wouldn't go through with it. He couldn't stand the idea of causing Armageddon.
