Lightest of Touches
By
Jake Bible

 

A small flutter, barely perceptible. People walk past, unawares.

The lightest of touches, the sensation of breath on skin. Dry, warm, soft. A hand brushes thoughtlessly at a neck.

The eyes watch, careful not to be noticed, careful not to be seen. Careful. The eyes wait.

The man, strong, virile, a perfect specimen, strolls by, his phone in hand, hand to ear, his mouth moving continuously, loud, wanting to be noticed, wanting to be important, playing the roll, pretending.

The eyes, the flutter, the lightest of touches notices him. He will be important.

A busy corner, a gentle shove. Screams.

My Right foot
By
Jake Bible

Run, you moron, run!

Shit… Where’s my right foot? Shit!

Right foot gone. Suit sealing. Good. No loss of air. What’s that beeping? Okay, some loss of air.

Keep running! Less thinking, more moving, dipshit!

Kinda hard without a right foot. Really fucking hard without a right foot. Fast hobbling is my new thing. I’m the interstellar hobbler. Fuck.

What’s that sound? Where’d that come from? Left? Right? Up? Down?

Down! The damned thing is below me! Under the fucking ground!

Keep running (hobbling)!

Ship in ten meters. Seven. Five. Three. One. Hatch!

ROOOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRRR!

Shit… There goes the left foot.

Cheers!

Writing In Suburbia #5: Juggling Act!

Howdy!

In the fifth episode of Writing In Suburbia, I discuss the juggling act of figuring out what to write next. I discuss the problem of committing to projects too soon which could lead to missing prime opportunities that haven’t shown up yet. It’s not a Catch-22, not a Sophie’s Choice, it’s a juggling act!

I also talk about cleaning the kitchen. Because that place gets gross.

 

Oh, and hey, before you start listening, be sure and check out the $.99 deal on In Perpetuity!

Not to mention that today is the release of the ebook for Reign of Four: I!
