Sci Fi Short Story – Different take on “The Last Man on Earth.”

I took out an old story from one of my writing groups.  We had to use the last man on Earth prompt.  I added some things and took away some things from my original version, and created a little something different.  Hope you enjoy!

A Spider’s Web – “Lucifer’s Dead Lady Bugs”

The Book is called "Lucifer's Dead Lady Bugs."  A piece of mind meandering today. First draft. A SPIDER'S WEB: Hiding him had been difficult, knowing he was so close.  It tortured my soul, biting like that of spider, irritating like a puss filled sore, pushing me further, tipping me downward, until I could not come… Continue reading A Spider’s Web – “Lucifer’s Dead Lady Bugs”

What I learned this Summer – Reflections on my 17 year old’s list.

Since I can remember, I have been fascinated by the theory of Atlantis.  Plato's description of the city beyond the Pillars of Hercules has fueled an imagination of who these people were.  Many scholars have rebuffed the idea, claiming this theory is pure fantasy.  But what if it were true, and there existed a civilization that rivaled our… Continue reading Writing Atlantis into my stories

Is writing good for your soul?

If I could, I would write everyday. It is unfortunate that life does not want to allow me that gift. If I could, I would squeeze a couple of more hours into the day just to quiet the desire of my soul, but with school, full time job, three grown kids, a boyfriend, four dogs… Continue reading Is writing good for your soul?
