Hiking Trip part five – the waterfall

Last day: the waterfall Last time we met, I was checking out an old 1800s cemetary. There was so much spookiness on those grounds, even Stephen King would have enjoyed it. I hope to get to go back some day and let my writing mind take over. It’s hard to do that when you are so filled with fresh air and excitement as I was from the hike.

I am sort of liking the fact that I can just write about 500 words on it (equivalent of 2  pages or so) and let that be the writing for the day. A writer writes. So, I am.

The Whiteboard – Part Two

Welcome to the second installment of my ongoing short story, The Whiteboard. Last time we met Anne, a mousy little office worker who found the whiteboard in her office had been utilized mysteriously after she left the office one night. You can read part one here The Whiteboard (part two) by Kim Smith © 2017 As the day progressed, Anne began to think of responses to the saying that had been written on the board. She wrote one of her own on the way out that evening. “Today’s experience was one of such horror, it would make a good movie.” She
