Flash Fiction: Held Up, or, Right On Time

She entered the house, poised for a tangle. She was quite sure she’d left the lights off, the door locked, her rooms neat. So why was there a lamp burning, the light soft against the window of her room on the upper floor? Was that a shadow she saw, flickering in the lamplight against the … Continue reading

In Which There is Christmas

Christmas is a time of giving, a time of family, and a time to celebrate those things you are thankful for in your life. Or at least, that’s what it’s supposed to be – whether you call it Christmas, or Yule, or you celebrate a different holiday all together, one thing remains constant in all … Continue reading

An Ode To My Rats

For the CU Online Blogathon: It has occurred to me that I have been more than a little vague about my life on here. What I like, where I live, what I do, what I find interesting. I think I will start with something that I love and find completely fascinating: My rats. Okay, okay, … Continue reading

In Which I Learn About Directing

It’s strange to think that only a few weeks ago I was writing about Thanksgiving and now Christmas is around the corner. I’m not going to talk about Christmas.  Christmas is being talked about by far too many people right now anyway. But I feel, because of the holiday and the new year, this strange … Continue reading

Flash Fiction: Curious, or Naked

She knocks on the door and waits for an answer. Sweat beads on her palm, on her brow – she has never done this before. Not this, but the other. The more confusing. The more complicated. She’d been invited, been asked here. The other woman, the one with the dark hair, had been so suggestive, … Continue reading

Baby, it’s cold outside, or Frostbitten

Here in Colorado, the temperature is -3 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s right. It’s way, way below freezing and I am expected to go to work at 8 a.am. Okay, so that truly isn’t that bad considering some of us work graveyard shifts, or wake up at 4 in the morning to be at the office. So … Continue reading

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or Obsessed

I have to say something, and you’re not going to like it. It’s about Buffy the Vampire Slayer – I love it. I more than love it, I obsess over it. Joss Whedon, the creator of the Buffyverse, is absolutely brilliant. His characters are amazingly well rounded, the plots are maybe a little cheesy but … Continue reading
