Writers's Digest Short Short Story Competition

Deadline extended until January 17th. Don't miss your last chance to enter.

"A lifetime isn't forever, so take the first chance, don't wait for the second one! Because sometimes, there aren't second chances! And if it turns out to be a mistake? So what! This is life! A whole bunch of mistakes! But if you never get a second chance at something you didn't take a first chance at? That's true failure." ― C. JoyBell C.

And blood pressure is soaring

A Covid Christmas

A Covid Christmas

No collection for Christmas poems for 2021 would be complete without this next poem.
The funniest face looked out at me from a pointy red ball on the Christmas Tree!

Clerihew

A clerihew is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. The first line is the name of the poem's subject, usually a famous person put in an absurd light, or revealing something unknown or spurious about them. The rhyme scheme is AABB, and the rhymes are often forced. The line length and metre are irregular. Bentley invented the clerihew in school and then popularized it in books.

Old Movie

Old Movie

He misses his child's birth for more compelling reasons,
and she's ok with it.
She places the newborn in his arms,
and when that's not enough,

she insists he rest with them in the birth bed.

Still, this isn't enough, and she's okay with it.

For The Boy

For the Boy

You've seen one, you've seen them all.
I'd hadn't seen any in years. Still,
you always enter from the back,
always from an unfavorable parking lot,
and always in the red-light district.

Shame

Shame

I was exhausted

dragging a robe.

The ex and I

yelled and argued

and powdered

the newborn's ass.

Gateway Science Fiction Books

The question of what the best science fiction book would be to hand a young reader to get them hooked on science fiction novels is an interesting one. Usually, I would expect that many teen readers nose around the sci fi genre after watching Fantasy movie series like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, and the classic sci fi movie series Matrix, Terminator, Star Wars and Hunger Games.

There were lots of Boomers and X-rs

some Silents

on that flight

some Millennials

to include the petty officer

and the rest were busy children.

Encounter

The Encounter

A woman watches her next-door neighbor walk across the well-manicured lawn to greet a group of friends. This was a mistake. Why did I let Alice talk me into coming to this party? I'm not ready. I feel like everyone's staring at me. Like… that man over there.
