rachel, on reading your little story i had that feeling of seeing someone i haven't seen for a very long time, rehearsing my speaking to them for the first time in that long time, and then realizing it wasn't them in the first place. steven
Love the one-sentence story idea! Yours is marvelous, as we have come to expect from you.
Steven - Isn't it an uncanny feeling - recognising a perfect stranger. I did it all the time after my gran died - saw her everywhere - followed her down the street once or twice.I like your picture;are you leafing?Les - thank you - I like it too and I'm really thrilled to have a line in Monkeybicycle - very cool place that it is!
I could read your poetry all day.I also had a quick scan through the others. "Clinic" made me laugh, although I'm not sure it was supposed to!
Thanks, Donna!Clinic was a stand out for me, too - and Dan Purdue's language was interesting, I thought. I like his stuff.I always laugh at the "wrong" stuff - reassuring when someone else does, too.
Wow. That is so cool. I loved your piece, Rachel. So intense. And all the others were amazing too. You have good company. So great.
Lori - thank you! I love writing dinky things - this is the first one sentence story I've submitted - I should do more.
All sorts of resonances and echoes shimmering off this single sentence, Rachel.
Cheers, Dick. I like a sentence I can chew on but I was going for a more down to earth approach to this sentence than if I'd be gunning for a poetry line. So I'm glad it shimmers.
What a lot you've got in that sentence!
Haha - and then some, Andrea!
Love it - fab!
Thanks, Nu :)
I meant Dan Powell earlier - but I like t'other Dan's stuff, too :)
Amazing that one sentence can say so much. I enjoyed all of these stories. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for reading, Helen. Monkeybicycle is an excellent venue - well worth a read.
A short story with a sigh at the end. I enjoyed it.
Hey Mike, even one sentence has room for catharsis. Good to *see* you.
"where I scattered his ashes and it's starting to rain"The sudden reminder of the present. Evocative.
Hey Kirk - thanks for dropping in - and for reading. Appreciate that.
Thanks so much for bringing me to the Monkey Bicycle site. Your entry so lovely. Ciao cat
