When #SoCS

“When I see you smile” This lyric is the first thing that came to my mind when I saw today’s prompt. Back when music was great and our hair was big. Maybe, I’m partial because that happened to be when I was a teenager.  Am I aging myself? Oh, well, I will get over it. I …

Banshee Scream #SoCS

Ever heard a panther scream? Sounds like a woman screaming. Maybe that’s where the story of banshees comes from. Maybe it’s the wind howling through the cracks in the frame that make that howling noise. The wolf panting at the door. Let me in or I’ll huff and puff and blow your house down. Down or …

Signs of Trouble #SoCS

Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sign.”   “Looks like signs of trouble up ahead” Jeb nodded toward the flashing lights around the next bend.

Under Pressure

“Impress me with your knowledge of the law”  Mr. Johns whispered pressing her up against the bookshelves. She laughed uncomfortably knowing that if she planned on ever becoming a partner she had to put up with Mr. Johns and the rest of the good old boys club. How much pressure does it take to break through …

Go! EclecticEvelyn.com

Go!

Go! Such a small word that can be packed with so much meaning.  Interesting to think about how so much meaning can be packed into two little letters of the alphabet.   “Go!” Alicia screams throwing the champagne glass across the room. She had found the letters from Zack’s mistress. “Go! Go! Go!” Mom cheers from …

Breakfast Alone

“I tire so easily now, It must be the weather” She knew it wasn’t the weather.  It was her life. So mundane and full of redundant days and ridiculous people. He looked at her over the top of the newspaper with disdain. At least, he showed a little interest in her this morning, eyes staring …
