I like to write. There’s no way around it. I love the melding of words, the careful placement crafting sentences that brand a heart and heal a soul. I’m going to try and start sharing a lot more in the hopes of getting myself into the habit of short stories. Many of the following stories were prompts that have nestled into my head and scratched at the inside of my skull until it crawled out in the form of a short story. You don’t’ have to understand them. But look deep and you’ll see the love, the pain, the fear, the loss.
