New Coffee Share for 21-09-18: Closing out Chapters

Most of you know I’m part of a group of bloggers who meet each weekend to share stuff.

Today, my Coffee Share essay is about goals: those completed and those frustrated.

It’s a quick literary look at such things set within the imagery of ‘chapters’. And, yes, I certain unpopular bug plays a part.  It’s less than 5 minutes long so I hope you’ll check it out.

Here’s the link for the full essay.
Coffee Share 210918: Closing Out Chapters


Why do I use both a blog post and a blog page for my essays?  WordPress has two devices for bloggers to publish with.

(1) Pages, for non-time-dependent things like items for my permanent story collection and,

(2) Posts, which are automatically chained into a chronological linked list AND every time I post, my followers are automatically invited to view.

When I want to both; add a new story and notify my followers, I must do both and add a link I hope you’ll click on to read the actual story.  Thanks for visiting.

Most of you know I’m part of a group of bloggers who meet each weekend to share stuff.

Today, my Coffee Share essay is about capturing a friends photo of us all dressed up for our high school prom. Yes, I warmly recall having that head of hair.

But I also did some quick updates of the ongoing backyard adventures and lessons learned about shade cloth, plums and blue belly lizards with strangely short tails.

New Story Chat is Live: Sometimes A Miracle

Good day all.  Today is the day and my new story is now live on Marsh’s Story Chat site. I hope you’ll stop by for a quick 4-5 minute read and join the discussion.

Story Chat :: Sometimes A Miracle


Tues. June 29 Update

We have a delay and this story chat will go live next Tuesday 7/6/21, not today.   Sorry for the false start.


This is just a heads up.

We are almost ready to post my new story, “Sometimes A Miracle” to Marsha’s neat blog site named #Story Chat

I will be posting the same story on my blog but from Marsh’s site you’ll have both the story and the chance to join a conversation by many other readers in the comment section about anything related to the story. I’ve been a reader of the works of other authors and played a part in those discussions. It’s great! You get to know the author better and have the chance to get inside their head about what they were thinking when they created the story.

Marsha limits the story itself to 1000 words so the read is short, but the story has to be compelling somehow so you can count on her selections carrying a memorable punch of some kind.  Today, you can review previous stories and discussions at the link below, but tomorrow — well tomorrow is my turn to stand in the spotlight.  I’ll  tell you a new story and stay close as you question, comment or analyze it.  I’ll will answer any questions and we’ll all have a good time.

I hope you will join the fun by clicking below then finding the new link at the top of her list and clicking in. Clicking below today will allow you to take a quick look into her gallery of previous Story Chat sessions but stop by tomorrow to find and join mine.

New Story Posted: Sit With Me

I’ve wanted to try my hand at a simple thriller without the gore that often comes with. I also wanted to make it come in under the 1K word size so it’s a very quick read. Are you in the mood for a bit of tension and excitement in your reading?  This should leave an image for you to chew on.

Here’s the link for the full essay.

New Coffee Share for 21-06-25: My Not-Heavy Knot

Most of you know I’m part of a group of bloggers who meet each weekend to share stuff.

Today, my Coffee Share essay is about a knot (yes – a knot) I created while helping in our kids camping program. I decided that it was useful and cool enough to share.

It’s easy and useful for toting heavy objects by hand. I still use it for camping gear.
