  1. Happy Halloween

    The jack-o-lanterns were all aglow in front of the houses down the darkly lit street. They walked arrogantly upright with their little cocky dip to their step when the tween-agers roamed the streets during Halloween Eve. The sparsely painted blood on t...

  2. Was Puff Really A Magic Dragon?

    He lived by the sea in land called Honilee. Is that magical? The sea can seem magical with it’s ever changing temperment. As far as Honilee, I am not sure where that is. Do you think a Dragon as big as Puff with his fearless roar that made Kings ...

  3. Get Your Fortune Told Here

  5. Sessions With The Counselor- Cont.

  12. The Corn Maze

    Have you ever been in a corn maze? A corn maze, for those of you that don’t know, is a maze cut out of a corn field. As if you couldn’t get lost in a corn field anyway, someone decided to make it even more difficult. You walk into the cut d...

  13. Hell Week at College

    It was an awful week. He already had some 500 word exams due by Friday and his computer got a virus and would not even turn on. The format for these exams was, of course, programmed onto his laptop. He knew his buddy down the hall had the same format ...

  17. They Survive

    I have two sisters. One is very rich. One loves and one demands to be loved. My oldest sister never had much, never asked for much, and learned to be content with what she had. She lived on welfare between her long spans of joblessness. She never compl...

    “Oh my God! She sticks her face in everything I do! Like, I can’t even call Brad. She’s all like, What cha doing? Who ya talkin to? Like it’s any of her business!” she rants into the phone. After a brief pause, “Oh y...

  19. Writer's Block

  20. Western Changes

    He rode the fences on his ranch searching or any irregularities in the strength of the barbed wiring. He looked across the plains occasionally in boredom. The day was like all the others. Nothing ever changed, nothing to report. He let his mind wander....

  21. True Love

    She lays at my feet. I get up to get a drink and she paitiently waits. She wags her tail and is content with my return. When I leave for work, she lays in her bed knowing and understanding that I must leave. She doesn’t question it, doesn’...

  22. He's Free to Fly

    He turned 21 today. I used to be ma ma, the one he needed. Then I was mommy, the one who knew all the answers. It later turned into mom, the one with the keys. Now it is Hey, You, or just the acknowledged head nod. Now I am the one to be the strongest...

  23. Blood is Thicker Than Water

    Every line backer on the team was chasing him now. He only weighed a third of what those big boys weighed but he had to have the ball. He ran across streets, through alleys and yards, jumping fences and shrubs. With them dead on his heels, he finally m...
