No More Lying to Yourself

Sara did what she could to keep the tears back. Sitting at the edge of her king size bed, through glistening eyes she stared out the window to watch the cold purples and dark blues of dusk slowly give away to the dim warmth of the morning glow. Memories of the previous night, a sleepless night that conjoined both days into one tired stretch of time, billowed in her exhausted thoughts. Her fists clenched as she held back the tears. But, no more lying to yourself, they’ll come. They’ll come no matter how hard you fight them (read the rest of it here).

I’ve been a busy bee lately, so sorry for the lack of updates. Between setting up a Friday night D&D campaign, running the Saturday game, and working on several podcasts; there’s barely time to breathe, let alone update this website.

All that aside, this is a piece I did last year that needed some touch ups. I wanted to use it in the horror-fiction novel i’ve been working on, but the character just didn’t fit… so she had to be scrapped. Here’s her introduction chapter. You can either follow the link, or just look for it in the writing menu.
