…until the Super-Short Serial Challenge (S4C) begins. I will be posting installments to my serial story here on this blog during the month of July. The first installment will be posted on July 1st, and subsequent installments will be posted on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
My story is entitled “Just Write” and it will appear in 12 installments. I’ve got a story within a story going here. In the main story, the heroine has just been diagnosed with cancer, and joins a writing group to help critique the novel she is working on. This turns out to be the story of a woman diagnosed with cancer.
If you want to learn more, you just have to read it! With each installment 500 words or less, it was pretty painless to write, and hopefully fun to read!
Please feel free to leave feedback under the Comments section. It is a work in progress! For more serial stories, check out: http://declarationediting.wordpress.com
The Other Side of Summer
Sultry, humid days
Dazzling electrical storms
The smell of rain on wet asphalt
The Tao of Yoga
I mentally pause
somewhere between Downward Facing Dog
and Happy Baby, to gaze through the skylight
and ponder clouds.
Marionberries and peaches and plums,
Raindrops on my Skylight
I awaken to a sound so unfamiliar
I’m not sure for a moment
what it is– welcome back, old friend!
To The Rabbit in my Garden
If you’re thinking about eating
my nice tender barberry shoots
and dianthus leaves—
Famous Last Words
With paper airplanes falling all around,
the flickering image on the screen
utters the word Rosebud, then dies.
I just realized there have been no new posts for two weeks. Chalk this up to the nice weather here in Portland and end of the school year madness. I am now officially in summer mode and fully intend to get back to my four and twenty poems again. I’ve also been side tracked gearing up for the Super-Short Summer Serial Challenge (S4C) offered by Declaration Editing.
During the month of July, I will be posting my serial story in 12 installments over the course of the month. The catch is that each installment has to be flash fiction, i.e. 500 words or less. I’m totally psyched. Below is a thumbnail sketch of my story. The first installment will appear on July 1. Stay tuned…

Recipe for Memory
Take one part reality,
and liberally mix
with two parts wishful thinking
