Shared Feelings – Flash Fiction

They’d been working together in silence. A comfortable silence. They each got on with their own work, doing what they had to do with no chatter, no laughter.

A Writer’s World

The stark white and brightness of the café melted away the more she wrote. Leaving behind the real world, she entered her own of peace and solitude; her pen dutifully scribbling down the realms and worlds of her imagination, desperately trying to keep up. Her soul had taken a leap, and even though the pages... Continue Reading →

22/365 – At Death’s Door
