A guest post I wrote recently recounting a frightening experience I had as a girl.
I wrote this short poem for #StorySaturday (Twitter). Today’s Teddy Bear Day and being me, I couldn’t write a nice and sweet poem-it had to be twisted and scary.
The girl hides under
the folds of the quilted cover
with her teddy bear
Murky shadows move
with an un-natural purpose
to claim and possess
When she opens her
eyes only to see the rising
sun, her bear on the
She reaches for it and
embraces the toy to her wet face
and receives the scent
Her idyllic childhood shattered by one event sending her on a journey that could decide the fate of mankind.
Anyone else planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
I’ve always been a fan of the classic Sleepy Hollow story, but this new television series has given new life to the story. It’s creepy. It’s fun. And dang it, I bloody love the English actor who plays Ichabod Crane!
