I LOVE 100-word stories! Well, obviously. Or else I wouldn’t have written 100 Nightmares. This is why I’m proud to announce that I am a supporter of the First Festival of Drabbles 2015!

The first Festival of Drabbles will start on November 9th and run until the 15th. It will be a week long celebration of drabbles and the art of drabble writing including some of the finest drabblists in the world.

Fellow author Michael Brookes was the one who came up with this brilliant idea. And I’m very pleased to be invited as a participant. If you’re new to drabbles, they are a form of flash fiction in which the story is told in exactly 100 words.

If you’re on Facebook, feel free to join the event! Invite any friends that you think would be interested and share the event on your timeline. :)

See you there!

Tonight Was a Good Night

This week’s theme is Today was a Good Day but I’m really more of a night person. :) These photos were taken in Macau last June.

Close Up

This is a close up image of words written by my mom. She’s still in the hospital–with left-sided hemiplegia after suffering from a severe stroke. (Thank you, btw, for your prayers and positive thoughts.) She communicates through faint head and hand gestures and of course, writing. Deciphering her messages is a tough task. If you fail to look closely, you might misconstrue/miss something significant.
