    A wish to celebrate is only granted if there is a thing to celebrate unless you want to celebrate the lack of anything to celebrate, but then it’s not much of a celebration, is it?

    If I had antlers, it would bug the shit out of me.

  • wemuma commented on the post, despair 8 years, 3 months ago

    There’s an emptiness of heart that can lead to despair. A feeling of anxiousness, racing heart, heat rising up from chest to neck.

    He filled his canteen, the creek coming up over his boots, licked clean the canyon dust from the pointy tips.

  • wemuma commented on the post, purpose 8 years, 5 months ago

    I ran down the street. Panicked. My child was in one of the house. About to be killed. I run up to door after door. Knocking. Knuckles bleeding. I woke myself on purpose. Wouldn’t you?

  • wemuma commented on the post, executive 8 years, 5 months ago

    I am an executive. There I said it. Frowned upon in the creative writing world. You are supposed to be starving, unemployed, or, at the very least, underemployed, to be a true artist, a true creative person.

    He mastered his technique digitally. He stood in front of his computer, raised his right leg and kicked. He was able to practice and perfect every aspect of his practice by watching on his computer five times a day.

  • wemuma commented on the post, audience 8 years, 5 months ago

    The world is my audience. Every day when I wake up I perform. I take a bow after making the coffee. I dart in and out of traffic and take home the first place trophy when I arrive at work on time. I speak at the meeting and am handed a bouquet of flowers. If […]

  • wemuma commented on the post, classic 8 years, 5 months ago

    “It’s a classic.” That’s the tagline I wrote for Talbots. No it seems that business is in the toilet. They refused to ever go with any of our marketing recommendations. Now it’s too late. They think a celebrity spokesperson can save them, but they’ve missed the boat.

    The patchwork of fields seem woven together, sewn neatly at the seams, as she looks down from the retro-square window of the plane.

  • wemuma commented on the post, approach 8 years, 5 months ago

    He held the rope in his left hand and and approached the jungle gym, pulling himself up with his right. When he got to the highest bar, he tied the rope to it then pulled the loop up and over his head, crowning himself. His somersault off the bar was perfect.

  • wemuma commented on the post, obsessed 8 years, 6 months ago

    obsessed. so much negative connotation surrounding the word. But what if you’re obsessed with yoga? Or healthy living. Is that bad? Who makes the rules about what is normal behavior and what’s obsessive anyway?

  • wemuma commented on the post, scarves 8 years, 6 months ago

    I have about 20 to 30 scarves. And I’m not even a magician.

  • wemuma commented on the post, example 8 years, 6 months ago

    I was looking for an example of a “he said, she said” story. Not to cheat, but to get inspired. Than I thought why does it have to be he said, she said, why not he said, he said? Whatever I need to think of a conversation with some heavy subtext.

  • wemuma commented on the post, control 8 years, 6 months ago

    I’ve lost my sense of control. I’m not out of control. I’m just not completely in control. It’s my mind that strays from the controlled place I so trusted. It can defy me on a minute by minute basis. It used to be the one thing I could count on. Now my body is the […]

  • wemuma commented on the post, keychain 8 years, 6 months ago

    I saw it at the bottom of my purse, the keychain with the single key. Hers. I forgot to give it back and I swore to myself that I would take it out and mail it. But I never did. Because that would mean it was the end of us.

  • wemuma commented on the post, tables 8 years, 6 months ago

    He did his multiplication tables as he sat under the light held by a wire from the ceiling. They’d shock him every once in a while as they asked him questions, demanded answers. Shocked him over and over with higher volts. 6×6, 7×7, it’s what kept him from answering their questions no matter how much […]

    Breasts the size of mangos.
    Really?
    Yes. And just as fruity tasting.
    You’re a dog!
    A happy dog.
    Hah! When can I meet her?
    You can’t.

  • wemuma commented on the post, tangle 8 years, 7 months ago

    “Oh what a tangled web we weave, whence…” she read the words and tried to decipher their symbolic meaning, which was the assignment. But all she could think about was spider webs getting into each other’s business.

  • wemuma commented on the post, wool 8 years, 7 months ago

    I cam off the ice of Rockridge Pond, frozen snow stuck to the wool of my mittens, and walked across the road in my skates, not caring about the damage to my blades.
