The Hangman’s Stage, part two

Better late than never…  The post is a touch late due to technical difficulties.  But I give you the next leg of The Hangman’s Stage.  In case you missed the first part, you can read it here: The Hangman’s Stage, part one.

Enjoy!  And thanks for stopping by!

The Hangman’s Stage (continued)

The crowd of folks followed the Judge. They clung tight to his four heels as he scrambled back onto the platform. Tucker and Sara watched as Doc was dragged around the back of the trailer. Moments later, Doc reappeared and was thrown into a cage at the tail end of the courthouse stage. Continue reading


The Hangman’s Stage, (part one)

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday!

Welcome everyone!  We now return you to your regularly scheduled program!  That’s right, now that I’ve gotten a handle on what to expect from Camp NaNo, it’s business as usual.  That means it’s story time!

Today we revisit some favorite characters of mine.  We’re jumping back into the Westocalypse- the apocalyptic west.  I think it’s about time we find out what trouble Doc, Sara, and Tucker have gotten into.

But, Joe! What happened to your favorite characters last time?  Shoot folks, y’all can look at their first adventure: Easy Money.  Just click it!

As per usual, I’ve split the story into two parts for ease of reading.  (I also happen to like the old style of serial storytelling.)  On Thursday, when the second half posts, I will also post the complete story on my Short Fiction page.  Short Fiction is a collection of every short story I’ve written here on the blog as well as some older stories I’ve posted in secret- sneaky me. Take a look, you won’t be disappointed.

Please feel free to comment on the story.  I’d love to hear from you.  Enjoy.  Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Hello Mudda, Hello Fadda…

Here I am at, Camp NaNoWriMo!  Don’t worry, I’m not about to break into song.  But I’m sure you’re all thinking it now- or perhaps my age is showing….

At any rate, it’s Day 3 of Camp and all but three of my Cabin Mates are hammering out the word counts.  I myself am up to 8,351 words so far.  Feels like a good start.  It also gives me some wiggle room Continue reading

Flash Fiction, June 28

Flash Fiction time!  I’m a little slow out of the gate this week, so bear with me.  This week our challenge was Down The TV Tropes Rabbit Hole.  We got a random TV Trope as our topic for the 1000 word challenge.  I got “We Can Rebuild Him” for my trope.  Think Six Million Dollar Man or RoboCop.  That was the inspiration at any rate…

I came in at 857 words.  Please feel free to comment on this little experiment and I hope you enjoy the read.  Rated P for potty mouth.  Thanks for stopping by!

(A Trope is a common or overused theme or device- like a cliche.  So says Websters) Continue reading
