Terror in Boring Town By: Hoot N. Holler Most people have a favorite season and preferred time of year. Some enjoy the colorful leaves of autumn while others long for the fluffy, white snow which accompanies winter. For me, summer is the best time of year. The arrival of summer is truly magical. The days become longer and once dormant life explodes back into action. Flowers bloom and green grass grows as the dull and dreary landscape is transformed into a rich and vibrant one.

Accepting What Is (Even the Flu!) By: Sedona Hutton Last week I came down with the flu. I had hot and cold flashes, a sore throat, a runny nose…the whole gamut.

Oh, Simile, Dear Simile… By: Cat Jenkins Consider the simile. The simile can be a thing of beauty. It can strike a respondent chord in its audience, both illuminating and inspiring. Used to effect, the simile is like a grace note, adding a touch of richness and life to the overall musical score. I’m a big fan of the simile, so it cuts me to the quick when I find it wantonly abused. This doesn’t happen often, because most writers have an innate simile-sense. They can test and taste and savor and know when they’ve hit the proper target;...Read More
