Who am I kidding... (posted: 11 Dec 2004) A bit of melancholy. The images in the background are just window-dressing. A weeks worth of writer's block was broken with this little introspective - so I am happy.
The Birthday Deal
(posted: 6 Dec 2004)
A contest entry, I used to be a member of a writing site and one of the other
members was turning thirty and admitted to being still afraid of roaches.
She sponsored a contest to write about that - a fear of roaches and she would
judge. I missed the deadline due to illness but submitted it anyway hoping
she could enjoy it anyway. My submission was also a bit over the 1500 word
limit - but I didn't worry about that due to the circumstances. She loved
it and awarded me with first prize.
Hope you enjoy it as well ...
