literary little sheep

PenFireSmall

yeah, we all have them, don’t we – late at night, lights out, almost asleep, and an idea pops up. we are flying out of bed, scrambling for pen and paper to jot it down – and it’s gone. that brilliant, shiny literary little sheep has run off and hid somewhere… all it leaves behind is the annoying baaaahhhing echo reverberating in surround sound.

i hate them. i always feel cheated, fooled, bamboozled when i am standing there in my briefs, pen drawn for battle and no foes in sight to slay. it happens to me more often than i like – i wonder how many books, stories, novellas etc.  i COULD have written if i had caught those  little fluff balls…

the land of moles

OldShoesPen175x175

“once upon a time, in an old forest far, far away, a mother bear turned over in her sleep under a huge windthrow and without knowing or intending to, she caused a great upset in the land of the moles.”

a fable. transferring human thoughts, feelings and actions to animals. often with a humorous twist. hm.

how will this fable, story, fantasy evolve? i have absolutely no idea. but i think i need to explore it.
