One Nation - 500 Flash Fiction Entry

The view before him caused heartfelt grief. Today he had no answers. His eyes moistened. He stepped back, wiped the wetness from his eyes as bullets littered his chest. The beloved President lay in a pile and gasped his last breath.

Something sad, forlorn about Poe that attracted me to him. Also my mother used to receipt Poe so perhaps it was this that draws me to his writings - a bit of memory in each word. The Raven gets me every time.

What I like best about Monica Brinkman's writing is her ability to place in my head the same descriptive scenes she lays down on paper or screen. That takes a lot of writing talent and this author's got plenty!

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
