Comments are nice. Criticism, praise, whatever.

I also write a blog with four other people in addition to my Ficly wanderings.

I will like you better if you get your tenses straight.

Jul.08.2010: Back again, I guess. I’ve been avoiding Ficly for some reason. Time to sit down and write again.

  1. Ghosts I-IV

    In the barrenness, I sit alone. The scrubs stetch out into the foothills of the brown mountains, regular punctuation decorating the grey sand. They rustle ever so softly at my feet. I’m daydreaming. I’m not sure why I like this; I guess the...

  2. A baker with blonde hair

    Like some tattered and desperate rebel flag, his dirty, just past the shoulders hair flapped in the wind as he trudged, marking an outpost of character. His equally dirty boots scraped against the road as he walked, the beat of a tired but hopeful patr...

  5. A Sneeze and a Dead End

    The sound of my stifled sneeze was a faint phut! in the surprisingly muffled room. I stood up on something that felt squishy. Fishing my lighter out and flicking it on, I squinted in the dim illumination. By estimation the room was about 20 by 20 feet,...

  6. Reality Not Far Behind

    I ran. Like a fool I ran. My footsteps clattered behind me like some ghost of a pursuer, but they were the falsity, and reality was not far behind. I took a glance back and upped my pace, bounding up a flight of stairs. At the top, there was a door wit...

  7. Cunning of Foxes
