Lull of the Storm

The woman was drenched and her boots were full of mud, yet the door had yet to oipen. The sounds from within made it evident that no one had retired, but the door had been bolted. Miriam could well guess why, thinking of sort of family that her mother had married into. There was light... Continue Reading →

Prompted: A Tempting Offer

Toby skidded around the corner, ducking down another alley.  The bruisers didn’t look like runners, but he couldn’t take the chance of being wrong.  Speed was of the essence and reaching the street would be safe.  Toby did everything they demanded, turning over the money required.  Why was he being pursued again? Barreling into another... Continue Reading →

Soldiers of the Void: Who am I?

Void-Class Vessels: While no records exist proving the existence of these colossal vessels, they remain a fixture in both fiction and imagination.  Legend states that seven were built, each one claimed to be equivalent to a large urban settlement to that of a minor planet.  Were any of these fairy tales correct, such ships would...

Mental Health: Where Things Stand

I want to build back up to the writing output from a few years ago, but I am struggling with everything. My mental health is stronger than it was last year, yet still in a terrible condition. The depression has been unrelenting for so long that I am experiencing difficulty in identifying where it stops... Continue Reading →
