It was a bittersweet moment. Today a postman arrived in town with a bunch of mail that has been waiting to be delivered for five long years. We’ve been starved of news from the outside world since the dusty snow began to fall, forests burned and cities died. It was a scene reminiscent of Santa…

83/100 Days of Creativity: Grandad’s Workshop

Grandad’s workshop was a mechanical wonderland. I remember the workbench where each year he would take apart the lawnmower to carefully clean each piece before putting it together again for another year of faithful service.

80/100 Days of Creativity: Stephen King Revisited

I woke in a panic. It was pitch black. I couldn’t move my arms or legs and I was having trouble breathing. It felt like there was something shoved in my mouth. I struggled to remain calm. And failed. Miserably. A sliver of light appeared as the door opened. I looked down and saw that I…

79/100 Days of Creativity: Are We There Yet?

Many people think space travel is exciting. It isn’t. Space travel takes a lot longer than one thinks and is boring. There’s nothing to see out the window, the food is bland and there are only so many times one can watch the same DVDs. I pass the time doing crosswords. It keeps my mind…

It was three in the morning and I was pretty damn drunk. I sat at a $3 blackjack table in Vegas playing two hands of $500 each. The first hand was a blackjack, the second an 11, with the dealer showing an 8. I doubled down and got a 10. Boom! I just turned doubled my…

75/100 Days of Creativity: Life in the Bunker

Blondi has died. I think Adi poisoned him but I dare not ask. The last few days he’s been off his rocker. He wasn’t impressed with Himmler’s antics and I’m worried what will become of him when Germany falls. As it is sure to do. As I was clearing the dishes from Adi’s meeting with…
