Well, it’s that time of the month again. No, not THAT time, time for my post for the Insecure Writer’s Group which is due the first Wednesday of every month. Okay, so I’m a day early. Sue me. :-)
I’m supposed to tell you about something that makes me feel insecure as a writer. Well, as this post goes live, I am ordering proofs for A Mother’s Love as I have finally decided to approach Create Space (a POD – or print on demand press) to have my first two books printed . The insecure part being that once they are in print, they can’t really be changed and my stupidity may be forever immortalized. I’m waiting for the changes on my first novel to be approved so that I can order a couple of proofs. Once they are approved, print copies will be available. I haven’t received the first proofs for the erotic anthology yet but I already know that I will be making changes there as well. I hope the end products are worth keeping in somebody’s library.
As a bonus (well, if you like it, it’s a bonus…if not, then you will suffer twice as much) I have enclosed another Flash Fiction to be added to Red’s Flash in the Pan series.The word is CHECK and I have 125 words to tell a story and make an impression on you.
He sits in a corner of the library away from the rest of the readers. His ghost-white hair and pink eyes make him stand out no matter how hard he tries to blend in. Bent over a list on a single white sheet of paper containing ’10 things to do before I die’, the bloodstained page receives a final check. A shrill scream cuts through the silent room making all of its occupants stop what they are doing and pay attention. The last thing on Norman’s list was “view the world differently.” There were two black holes where his eyes used to be as fresh blood dripped down his cheeks like Gothic tears. His eyes would later be found inside his clenched right fist.
