Social Media

So, I've been bullied into Facebook by my relations. I'd managed to do okay without it, but like my eventual cave to adopt Twitter, I opened a Facebook account and am not that impressed thus far. Probably because I still don't know how to work the stupid thing.

Anyway, other than that, I've lacked the ability to update this particular social media I've been using the longest. Literally NOTHING in my life has changed since the new year. There is zero to report. I have trouble coming up with something interesting, probably because I don't feel all that interesting these days. I'm in a slump, I know. I do a lot of waiting and that eats at me. We've all been there, right?

Hope everyone's doing well. I gotta drudge into work, my FAVORITE place. (Sarcasm does not drip, it runs like a river)

Hermit behavior

I've been pretty guilty of it lately. My one year bloggiversary came and went, but my mind has been on tons of things other than my blog and my writing. I'm not proud. I'm not happy. I wish things would level out and I could go back to the way things were just a few months ago.

My computer went tits up last Wednesday and now I'm on a sort of temporary set up just so I can be online. I am the opposite of a happy camper about this. Luckily, I was able to salvage my four stories.

Here is another 100 word short I did a few weeks back. I hope everyone is doing okay and you're making a lot more progress than I am these days. Stay warm, y'all.


Scandal’s ‘Goodbye to You’ warbled through static on his Trans Am’s radio. Mildew beneath the seats stank of old beer and fried food.

“You booze, you snooze, Flair Bear.” The pet name once warmed me, but my older brother fell from idol to scoundrel in my jaded eyes.

“It doesn’t go like that.”

I regretted getting in the car. He reached for the fisted hand on my thigh. I pulled back. His skin, mottled like jasper, told me all I needed to know.

The door protested as I climbed out. “Don’t come back.”

“See you tomorrow.”

“No. You won’t.”
