He screams in horror; he awakes to find himself confined? Where is he?  He tries to move desperately, but he feels tied down to something? His vision is still terribly blurred, and he feels a strange drowsiness still overtaking him. He had found his freedom, and now where is he? Continue reading “How Did I get Here?

“No!”

His screams echo from through the darkness. He sits up gasping for air, pain, wracking his body, a terrible amount of pain. All he remembers was the moment of impact, and then he died.

It has been a long hard week for many of us in the United States as well as around the world. Many have been left in complete shock, a strange ending to what was a horribly unpredictable election cycle. But rather than discuss the politics around the event, this posting is a discussion of how this affects me as a writer and how it may influence those who write around the Globe.
