“Please, Mom? I’ll do anything,” Josh pleaded.
“No.” She didn’t even flinch. “Don’t ask again. I won’t repeat myself.”
“But Mom…” He’d never wanted anything so bad in his life.
“Okay, that’s it. Just remember: you brought this on yourself.” She pulled the duct tape out of her purse.
“No, wait. I’m sorry.”
Daily Prompt: Harsh
Warmly colored leaves soften the cold forest floor beneath me. I scour the sky for meaning, in vain.
The encroachment of evergreens and branches keep secrets. I shriek for answers that will never come, and tears burn unimpeded into my ears.
But no one’s listening to me, not even the trees.
And you’re still gone.

oblivious of the lives below
emergant beginnings and withered endings
indifferent to all, time passes

Wordsmith Studio Creative Prompt: Mighty
Both my fiction and my photography are being published this month! I’m SO happy! I feel like a “real” writer and photographer now. ;)
“My Angel” is a very short story in the July 2013 issue of the literary magazine Mouse Tales Press. Currently, the magazine is online, but this issue will be the first available in print, and very soon! ***July 10, 2013 Update: Mouse Tales Press now available in print!!***
“Imagination” is a highly saturated photograph that graces the cover of the No. 12 issue of the literary and art magazine Enhance. There is also a spread inside the magazine showcasing my photo book. This magazine is currently available in print! You can order copies here.
Go buy some copies and support these wonderful literary publications!!

Join the writing and photo fun!
Sorry I haven’t been around much lately.
I’m in the beginning stages of planning my newest novel. I’m really excited about it, so it’s been hard to pull myself away. I’m using the Snowflake Method, and it’s fantastic. If you are a writer and haven’t read about it, click and do so now. You won’t regret it. Besides planning ahead, like I’m doing, it’s great for organizing and mapping works you’ve already written, too.
Since I’ve been focusing most of my writing on this new project, I probably won’t be posting much of my fiction writing here. Unless, of course, I come across a particularly inspiring prompt and just can’t resist. ;)
I will, however, still be posting responses to at least one photo prompt a week. I love my photo prompts too much to resist, and they are a great break from writing when I need one.
So, without further ado, and in response to the Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Photo Prompt, I say, “Drink up!”
Moscato is my favorite wine, light and fruity, and just a little bubbly.
Feel free to grab your favorite beverage and toast with me.
