Impossible Body
By
Jake Bible

“Of all the specimens I’ve collected, this one is my favorite,” Mr. Rege stated as he gestured towards the display case. “As you can see, it is perfectly preserved. Until this find, only partial examples were ever found.”

Morgan stared at the multi-limbed…thing. It was suspended in the display case by thick wires, its impossible body hung for all to see.

Then it twitched.

“Uh…Mr. Rege?” Morgan said, tapping him on the shoulder as the man continued to address the other guests. “It moved.”

“Nonsense,” Mr. Rege said as the display case shattered into a thousand pieces.

Writing In Suburbia #60: The One Where I Interview Myself! And Fail Hard…

Welcome back, y’all!

It’s time for episode #60! Woo hoo!

In this episode, I attempt to interview myself. No, seriously. It’s all part of a new segment I’ll be including in Writing In Suburbia twice a month. I’ll be interviewing writers and asking them two questions: Why do you write? and, What was, or still is, the hardest part about being a writer?

I’ve already got some great interviews recorded.

But I thought it would be fun to break y’all in with an interview of myself. Fun? Sure. Funny? Yeah, I crack myself up.

So, have a listen and enjoy!

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Welcome back, y’all!

How do these Fridays keep happening? Where do they all come from? It’s like every week there’s another Friday. Crazy.

HEY! Sorry, didn’t mean to yell, but HEY!

Have you read Galactic Vice? If you have then please do me a favor and leave a review. It can be one or two words even. Here are some suggestions: “AMAZING!”, “GROUNDBREAKING!”, “ORGASMIC!”

Okay, maybe not that last one…

Anyhoo, reviews are how authors stay alive these days. If you forget to review your favorite author then they shrivel up like shrinky dinks and become husks of their former selves. And as much fun as that would be to watch, just like watching shrinky dinks in the oven, most authors don’t enjoy shriveling. Something to do with the thymus gland or whatever.

REVIEW GALACTIC VICE!

Also! Guess what?

Now, on with the drabble!

Enjoy!

The Image
By
Jake Bible

“Can we cry alone and be our better selves?” Missy asked, her eyes locked onto the image before her. “Can we be solitary creatures and improve upon our basic beings?”

“Uh…” Craig mumbled, unsure of where she was going with all that.

“I mean, look at this,” Missy continued, nodding at the image. “It’s excruciating. The inner turmoil I feel demands that I be alone.”

“I’m not seeing…” Craig began, but gave up. The image wouldn’t let him finish.

“Maybe we should break up?” Missy suggested.

“I can’t… I won’t…” Craig stuttered.

The image watched them, mocked them, ruled them.

Cheers!

Happy Friday, y’all!

Is your Friday a freezing hellscape of wind and stupid weather? Mine is! Over 50 degrees yesterday and now it isn’t even 30? END TIMES, PEOPLE! END TIMES!

Speaking of end of times, and beginning of times, you should check out Brian Walton’s Recursion series.

“The Recursion Event Saga is a time travel thriller told chronologically in 5 parts. each taking you to unique settings, times, and characters. From 1950s Paris to a post-apocalyptic future, lives and fates collide in ISD Agent Molly Gardner’s desperate fight to hold together the threads of history, and to solve the riddle of her life.

A war-correspondent searching for his dead wife, a young screenwriter with a love for the paranormal, a time-traveling double agent, and a girl who’s lived multiple lives—all play a part in the century-spanning saga.

This week only (1/30-2/2) get books 1-3 of the Recursion Event Saga for 99c each, and escape through time today… or yesterday.

Sounds cool, right? Check it out!

Really Upset
By
Jake Bible

“I can’t find my wallet,” the man sobbed. “I can’t find my wallet!”

“Should we help?” Melissa whispered to Jeff. “He looks really upset.”

“He lost his wallet,” Jeff said as the couple walked on. “I’d be upset too.”

“IT WAS MY LIFE!” the man shrieked.

“Jeff…” Melissa hissed.

“Fine,” Jeff said, returning to the man as Melissa waited. “Hey, buddy, can I–.”

The knife slash was swift.

“Did you take it?” the man asked, Jeff’s throat spewing blood.

Melissa screamed.

The man smiled down at Jeff. Then he picked up something from the sidewalk. “Oh, wait, here it is.”

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Hey there! I missed y’all last week. It was Black Friday and I spent the weekend buried under a pile of Pillow Pets. They were 75% off. I wanted the koala so I dug deep. Then it all went dark. That’s why I missed last week’s Drabble Party. My bad…

But, hey, I’m back now!

First, for the obligatory sales pitch: BUY MEGA 6!

End obligatory sales pitch.

On with the 100 words!

Enjoy!

No Friends
By
Jake Bible

Five friends went into the woods. Four friends came back.

What they saw, they never spoke about. What they did, they never told. What they experienced, they tried to forget.

Four friends went into the woods. Three friends came back.

What they saw, one of them spoke about. What they did, one of them told. What they experienced, one could never forget.

Three police squads went into the woods. No police squads came back.

Two friends found the third friend. Two friends took the third friend into the woods. No friends came back.

The woods sighed. The woods were happy.

Cheers!
