Dawn or Dusk

A lot of my stories seem to be quite dark and pessimistic. Doomsday-ish and post-apocalyptic. I’m not sure why. Well, actually, I am. I’m afraid of the world. I mean, I’m a pretty optimistic person, over all, and I don’t keep myself shut up in my house, afraid to go outside, but the world is…

There Goes The Sun

I apologize for the story delay lately. Last week’s Chuck Wendig challenge was ‘You Are Carrying’ – where you had to tweet to the bot @YouAreCarrying, and it would give you a randomized list of items to include in your story of 2000 words.
