I pulled the parking brake on the Ford and turned off the motor just outside the walkway up to the address. I swallowed down hard in my throat as I saw the curtains fling here and there. I knew I was being studied, and I wondered if they expected me to have gone home to change from my work clothes. Well, being my lunch break that was out of the question. "Just drop off the motorcar and be on your way" I said to myself as I came to the porch steps. [978 Words] - THIS IS A YEAR OF THE DRAGON CONTEST ENTRY FOR APRIL

A selection from The Surfing Beatnik by Abraham Ahmed SNIP: "With the fire light that beamed into Burly Thom’s face I could now make out the details of his disposition. He was indeed a much larger man in the light than in the dark. Though not obese by any means, he was big, robust, and brawny. He had a thick, dark red beard with hints of gray near the corners of his mouth and chin. His face, already wide, seemed wider, almost bear-like, with this beard. His hair, also of the same dark red, was kept in a neat, side-combed crew cut. He seemed to glow in the firelight." [3332 words] -- This is a Year of the Dragon Contest entry

Published by LET.THEM.EAT.CAKE | Tuesday, January 31, 2012 6:26 AM
One summer, all I did was jump rope on the street in front of my house. My hands go so calloused and my feet were black, but it was worth it. After that summer, I never jumped roped again, I'd gotten enough I told everyone. But the truth, well I told myself If I jump rope again, it will be like that summer is over, and to me, it never ended.

I have worked as a journalist. As such, my mentors trained me to produce accurate, well-sourced material quickly. In the last few years, I have been writing fiction. Art provides the opportunity to linger on a scene and use imagination. One day, I stopped to consider how people, “sources,” feel sometimes on the other side of my notebook. 159 Words
