Holiday Blues

    December is upon us, and with it as always comes the end of the year - and with the turn of the cycle, reflection.

Stories in Brief : December First

Stories in Brief

by Seamus King

I liked yesterday's prompted microfiction so well, I thought I would make it a thing.  Welcome to "Stories in Brief" - tales told in microfiction.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Special thanks to Cee Kingsley - you can check her out on a variety of social media, starting here.

Bedtime Story:

The stars haven't always been there.  Before the planets were shaped, before the skies were painted or the the comets began their long circuits throught the cosmos, the stars winked into life.

Tuesday Afternoon Prompts

Stories inspired by Twitter Prompts - in formats more robust than 280 characters.

'Someone tell me a story about magic and dragon slaying."

Once upon a time, a terrible dragon ravaged the verdant countryside.  The mighty wyrm consumed everything in its path in its quest to sate his endless hunger - but the hunger only grew with every passing day, and his destructio grew greater and greater.

Ebbs and Flows

 I've been out of the creative loop for a while; the pandemic, even at its tail end, is draining in all sorts of ways.  I let routine break down and then it was just... a mess for a while.

But summer is upon us, and the trees are green and the sweet scents of flowers in full bloom soar on the breeze, and I have new ideas and old ideas and maybe I can make words again.  Words that flow like water running over rocks in a hidden stream, words that fall from my fingertips like drops of summer rain.

Or, barring that, words that work and advance the story.

Here's to you, fellow writers, fellow creators, struggling through a wasteland to harness or hear your muse.  You are enough. Your words are enough, and they matter.

Let's survive this tide together.

Fraki Comes Home

The Loyal Elkhound Comes Home

A New Puppy for the Family

Grey and Silver Elkhound Puppy in a Green Bush

    This weekend we picked up our very own Fraki, fully called 'Fraki Anybody' (because we love Terry Pratchett') and so far he is everything we could have hoped.  He's still settling in, but he is freindly and fierce as I ever expected Brandr's boon companion to be. Getting him used to the house has been a lot of work so far but so rewarding.

    Many more records of this dog's journey to come!
