Throwback Thursday #24–The Wizard’s Bride

I was flipping through an old notebook of mine yesterday and came across this bit of story, which I thought I would share for Throwback Thursday. This was written on the 27th of March 2011. Once upon a time, there was a wizard who fell in love with the beautiful daughter of a rich family…

Into the Snow #whatpegmansaw

Prompt: https://whatpegmansaw.com/blog/ 100 words (I forgot that I could write up to 150 words) The force sucked Andrew through the circle of blue fire and into deep snow. He landed face-first. “Ppptthb!” he gasped, staggering to his feet and brushing snow off his cotton pajamas. Why hadn’t he worn something warmer to bed? And then…

Throwback Thursday #21

Today’s Throwback Thursday story is one I posted here a year ago, soon after I started this blog. *** Before I dive into today’s story, I want to share a recent revelation.

Mumei #writephoto

Written for Sue Vincent’s #writephoto prompt and Promptober day 15.  362 words Mumei hovered a few inches above the rocky ground, ragged robes just brushing his cast-off skull at his feet.

Prompt: https://godoggocafe.com/2018/07/24/tuesday-writing-prompt-challenge-july-24-2018/ As he followed Florence into the house, Abel focused on the bird’s faint heartbeat. His own heart thudded with anticipation of what Cassandra might see. Abel’s hunches were rarely wrong. He had spent enough time with…

A Discovery in the Snow

Photo by Chanan Greenblatt on Unsplash Written for this prompt and this prompt. Florence noticed the dead bird first. She flapped toward the small heap of feathers, eager hand outstretched. “Look! What happened to it?” Abel slapped her hand away and crouched, coat spreading over the snow as if it were wings itself. He squinted and frowned. It was about the…

Throwback Thursday #16

Photo by Tom Swinnen from Pexels Today I’m posting something I wrote back in November of 2012. Here it is. *** The child hadn’t made a sound in hours, because of the small dose of sedative in his milk. The man was glad of it. Besides the rough snorting of the horse’s breath and the…
