“If you thought leaves in your shoes and lumpy milk was bad,” the small girl said, “just you wait.”⁣ ⁣ “Wait?” she whispered.⁣ ⁣ “Wait until your tongue turns black, until spiders make nests in your ears, until-”⁣ ⁣ “Stop it,” she said. “What do you want?”⁣ ⁣ “You know.”⁣ ⁣ The crown. But she wanted so to keep it, more every day. She wanted to hold it, to wear it loosely on her fingers, to kiss it. ⁣ ⁣ “It’ll only get worse.” ⁣ ⁣ “What will?”⁣ ⁣ “The need for it. It’ll consume you. It’ll be the most important thing in the world to you. More important than food or shelter or any living creature.”⁣ ⁣ “I don’t believe you.”⁣ ⁣ She sat on the box. “Smart move, that.” She knocked on the lid. “Brass latch and hinges.”⁣ ⁣ “My mother gave that box to me.”⁣ ⁣ “My mother gave me the crown.” The girl looked so sad that all the heat in her cheeks turned blue.⁣ ⁣ “What if we share it?”⁣ ⁣ She looked at her with impatience. “Pixies keep what’s theirs.”⁣ ⁣ She started to cry. “I’ll miss it too much.”⁣ ⁣ “You’d miss your pinkie toes more.”⁣ ⁣ She hiccupped again. “Huh?”⁣ ⁣ “The curse.”⁣ ⁣ “Oh.” She put her arm on the dresser, laid her head on it and wailed. ⁣ ⁣ “I’ll give you something for it,” the pixie said.⁣ ⁣ “There’s nothing else I want!” She hiccupped and cried.⁣ ⁣ The pixie hopped off the box and whispered in her ear, “My name’s Anemone.”⁣ ⁣ She kept crying but flipped the latch and opened the box. She couldn’t bear to look.⁣ ⁣ When her tears were all used up, she wondered why she’d been crying at all. She wondered why, too, her jewelry box was open. She wondered at the leaves in her shoes, the knots in her hair and the smell of burnt toast coming from the kitchen.⁣ ⁣ From that day on, wherever she breathed, anemones grew. They sprang up in country gardens, in concrete city blocks, in window boxes and flowerpots. They grew in sun and rain and snow and ice. ⁣ ⁣ They were gold and ruby and sapphire blue, emerald and onyx and pearl veined with light. ⁣ ⁣ All the colors of a tiny crown she could never again quite recall.

Whoa! 😮 my hair is popping today! And to think I was hiding this awesome silver hair with hair colour.. seems like utter madness now. My eyes look very wrinkly in this shot as I was squinting (it’s just too bright and sunny to take pics here - no I’m not complaining) but I’ve earned every wrinkle and silver strand over the past 50+ years. I was asked the other day, ‘what was the worst moment in your life?’ Now, if you’ve read a previous post you will know that I’ve been on fire. Not literally, actually on fire. So you would expect this to be my worst moment. But... no, it wasn’t. Everyone has suffered loss, pain, stress, disappointment, depression and moments of utter hopelessness. Physical pain from trauma cannot be remembered. We just remember that we were in pain. But the worst moment in my life was not from pain (and being on fire is ranked high on the 1 to 10 pain scale!) but when I had achieved and gained everything I thought I wanted. I had a house with 22 rooms, a brand new sports car in the driveway, at least 4 luxury trips per year and a beautiful designer handbag. The worst moment was realising that none of this made me happy. In fact, I was drowning under the weight of owning so many objects and possessions, and suffocating with the toxicity of the job I was in. I flew all over the world business class, eating at the best restaurants and I had more money than I needed. But I was unhappy. Very unhappy. One day I was sat in a meeting, I was disagreeing with everything being said. I wondered how I had reached a point in my life where I was just wasting it, sitting in pointless meetings that never actually achieved anything or made a difference to anyone. I got up, picked up my briefcase and walked out of the meeting, the building, the job. I’ve never looked back. Being happy is the most important thing to me. Good health (both mental and physical) is your most prized possession. Don’t waste a day, hour or moment doing something that makes you unhappy. Time is far too precious. #middleagedwoman  #shortstories  #bethechange  #positivity  #behappy  #silversisters  #over50  #overfifty  #over40women  #over40  #motivation  #happiness  #dowhatmovesyou  #takecontrol

💀 Ovo je zbirka priča nastala u čast dvadestogodišnjice sajta Liljina biblioteka, koji se bavi svetom Stivena Kinga. Okupljeno je trinaest autora i svi oni su na neki način bitni za Hansa - Oke Lilja . Pred nama je dvanaest priča i svaka je posebna na svoj način. Bave se ljudima, čak i onda kad je prisutan natprirodni element. Poigravaju se ljudskim strahovima, žudnjama, slabostima i zabludama. Neću vas lagati, nisu sve zanimljive. King, kao predmet obožavanja autora sajta, je mogao ponuditi bolju priču . Meni su se najviše dopale: Ajelijana, Pidžin i Tereza, Privučeni plamenom (ona najviše), Saputnik, Majčinska ljubav i Čuvarev družbenik ( poslednja u zbirci i savršeno je poentirala). Samo zbog njih je vredelo pročitati. Zbirka je reklamirana kao nešto što ledi krv u žilama, ali nije takva. Samo tri ili četiri su zaista jezive. Takođe, raspored priča je mogao biti srećniji. Manje bi se osećala dosada na početku, iako se "Mreža" i "Novela o holokaustu" bave društveno važnim pritanjima. Ali prosto nisu strašne. Nije mi žao sto sam pročitala priče i verujem da svako može naći nešto za sebe. Ali ne znam koliko bih bila zadovoljna da sam sama kupila knjigu. Da li ste je čitali? Kakvi su vaši utisci? . . . . #vulkanizdavaštvo  #isijavanjeutami  #zbirkaprica  #liljaslibrary  #shininginthedark  #shortstories  #hororpriče  #horrorstories  #delfikutak 

A teaser from my next short story. 🌊 #shortstories  #writing  #writersofinsta 

In celebration of the beginning of #fall , the approach of #Halloween  and the release of the #StephenKing  film adaptation of #ItChapterTwo , I've decided to embark on a journey through King's catalog of #novels  and #shortstories . It began for me almost 15 years ago as a freshman in high school with the massive tome known as #It , and I figured a good start to this "Revival" would be the #book  of the same name. 🎈 I'll be entirely honest I almost gave up on this book after about 50 pages. The rise was so slow and painstaking and I didn't understand where it was leading. I should never have doubted the master though, as all of that carefully laid foundation paid off in spades. Not only do the #protagonists  feel like real people, but even the background #characters  have such well fleshed-out back stories. And #JamieMorton , our lead player, is sent on a 5 decade-spanning collision course with "Pastor/Reverend/Whatever-Title-He-Chooses-For-The-Moment" #CharlesJacobs  (aka his "#fifthbusiness ") that will shake #Heaven , #Hell  and everything in between. 🎈 Despite a slow start, #Revival  did not disappoint and ranks highly among King's best. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 🎈 🎈 🎈 #horror  #scary  #spooky  #classic  #read  #reader  #readers  #collectibles  #collecting  #collection  #collector  #nerdy  #geeky 

On those nights I would close my eyes and enter the alternate reality in my deep slumber⁣ There was always someone to meet me there..⁣ I knew it was him.⁣ He was faceless, translucent, physically unknown⁣ But I heard his words, his spirit talking to me,⁣ Telling me we’d meet soon. ⁣ He told me to wait for him because he heard my soft whispers to be loved.⁣ Every night I wished to just see his face,⁣ Wanting to know who this ghost was haunting my mind.⁣ Feeling his presence in my sleep helped my loneliness subside.⁣ One afternoon my phone buzzed,⁣ Someone who disappeared managed to find their way to me ⁣ "It’s me" he said, “the one who lives inside your dreams.”⁣ I asked him “how is this possible?”⁣ He replied “Because your mind is the most powerful thing you can possess. What you think inside your head becomes real..”⁣ I dropped my phone from the shock and my phone started ringing instantly.⁣ I knew it was him⁣ I pressed talk and heard the familiar voice through the phone ⁣ “I’m outside beautiful let me see you,” he said ⁣ I opened my door and the sight of him sent a thousand waves of electricity through my body. ⁣He opened his arms and I walked into them feeling that familiar presence I felt when I slept⁣. Our souls connected making me feel like home.⁣ I knew it was him.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ If you enjoyed what you read please follow @lotus.vzns ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #creativewriting  #amwriting  #writersofinstagram  #writing  #writings  #writingsociety  #writer  #writingcommunity  #writingismyfreedom  #lotus .vzns #love  #loveyourself  #selflove  #selfcare  #selfawareness  #shortstories  #stories  #love  #writersnetwork  #writers_den  #writerstag #thecultivatedfool

[Sigh] I never thought something so exciting would be happening today, but I actually have a chance of having my short story published as part of an Anthology Book. This is crazy. I wanna thank everyone who has voted but I still need more votes! Just the idea... Just the fantasy in my mind of people reading what I wrote, loving it or hating it, already makes my heart jump of happiness. It has been years and years locked inside of my room, alone, writing for the walls, building and destroying worlds, creating and killing characters, but now I have the chance of finally presenting the world what I have to offer. All you need to do is CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO (I always wanted to post that lol), read the synopsis and VOTE. I'm sorry for this ugly photo, but since I don't have a cover yet, I just wanted to share how happy I am with this e-mail I received from the support team congratulating me for my 25 votes. @soopshorts  #writerssupportingwriters  #authorssupportingauthors  #writersofig  #bookstagram  #bookstgrammers  #bookish  #readingcommunity  #booksofinsta  #amwriting  #authorslife  #writerslife  #authorsofinsta  #authorsofig  #indieauthor  #shortstories  #shortstory  #writing  #bookshelf  #writercommunity  #writingcommunity  #anthology  #flashfiction  #authorgram  #soop  #soopanthology  #50ServingsofSOOP 

PRIVILEGE AND PRISON Somebody asked me if someone has ever written a poem about me Fumbled, hurried, I arrived at an answer with my lips quivering at the taste of years gone by You had said I was beautiful in how I denied, that it didn’t hurt to not be loved than to be, with restrain Since then, I’ve carried you to countless cafes, libraries, parks, bridges, monuments, trying to find the ones you wrote me with in your last poem But only when somebody asked me that question today, did I realise that being written into a poem, being loved like that is both a privilege and a prison

I haven’t done nearly as much reading as I planned to this summer but at least I made it count with #saltslow , a dreamy collection of dark tales about otherworldly happenings🐙👻.

Uno dei libri più belli letti negli ultimi anni, non a caso vincitore del Premio Pulitzer per la narrativa nel 2009, edito in Italia da @fazieditore.  Una raccolta di racconti, ma tutti legati fra loro e con la stessa protagonista che dà il titolo a questo piccolo capolavoro. Ambientato in una cittadina immaginaria sulla costa del Maine (stato a nord dell'America), con parole precise ed essenziali l'autrice Elizabeth Strout riesce a parlare di sentimenti, famiglia, amore e disamore, affetti e odio, abitudine e novità, sorpresa e fastidio, lutto e piccole felicità, dedizione e delusione... Tutto il sentimento quotidiano in piccoli quadri dalla pennellata precisa, che raccontano la speciale normalità che ognuno di noi ha incontrato. Nel 2014 ne è stata tratta una pluripremiata miniserie tv dalla HBO magistralmente interpretata. #narrativa  #libri  #romanzi  #racconti  #books  #booklovers  #novel  #olivekitteridge  #elizabethstrout  #fazieditore  #serietv  #hbo  #letteratura  #letteraturaamericana  #shortstories  #bookstagram  #book  #booklover  #bookworm  #bookaholic  #bookphotography  #bookgram  #bookaddict  #bookstagramitalia  #bookclub  #booklove  #booksofinstagram  #bookstagrammer  #libridaleggere  #libro

"Ugly words carelessly arranged can derange us just like beautiful words in beautiful order. Ugly derangement saps us and depletes us, devolves us to our base selves, rips feathers from the wings we've gained from all our beautiful derangement." -Rion Amilcar Scott, THE WORLD DOESN'T REQUIRE YOU I heard nothing but positive buzz for this book but what I got was something I was not ready for! I love interconnected short stories but this collection is a lot of work. Be prepared to sit with this book for awhile. Rion Scott is a beautiful writer and I loved some of the stories but also disliked a few.  I often wondered what this book would be like if it was an actual novel. I gotta be honest, this was a difficult read for me. I didn't love this one.  However, the cultural importance of this book is necessary. With stories that explore Afrian American history, slavery, religion, power and love, this books is saying something important in a very unique way. I don't think this is going to be for everyone but I'm glad I powered through because the last short story, which is the longest, was really great.

QOTD: Do you like reading short story collections? If so, which are some of your favourites? ▪️ I don't read a lot of short story collections, not because I don't enjoy them, but because I haven't heard of many. Usually the short story collections I read are novella bind ups of series I love. A short story collection that I have read and loved though is My True Love Gave To Me edited by Stephanie Perkins. I really loved the stories in this one and I also really liked that it contained stories by different authors because that way we get introduced to so many that we might not have heard of before. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #bookstagram  #bookstagrammer  #bookworm  #booknerd  #bookgeek  #bookaddict  #bookaddicted  #bookcommunity  #bookcover  #booknerdigans  #instabook  #bookish  #bookishlife  #bookishlove  #booklove  #booklover  #stephenking  #shortstories  #bookaholic  #bookphotography  #bookphotographer  #bookphoto  #totalbookworm  #totalbooknerd  #instabook  #read  #reader  #amreading  #bookdragon  #instareader

Vahel satun ka eesti autorite loomingut lugema. See peab küll täiesti teadlik valik olema, aga mõni kord see siiski juhtub. ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Kolm lugu, kirjutatud vanamoodsas ilusas keeles, täis põhjamaist kargust ja raskeid valikuid. Minu lemmikuks oli teine lugu, "Nagu nuga vööl". Pani mõtlema otsuste üle, mida iga inimene mõtlemata teeb, ja tagajärgede üle, millest pääsemine pole sugugi kerge. Viimane lugu meeldis, aga lõpp rikkus asja ära.

The first time you pointed at a lighthouse You told me how it provided direction and protection To long lost voyagers in the stillness of the night. We were two boats in murky waters then And what seemed like bright lights and respite Began to get dimmer As we began to drift farther For the price we paid for distance Was distance itself And the aftertaste of abandonment Was a tough pill to swallow. Listen, I've been waiting at the shore tonight, I've heard ships that come here Or come and leave Carry stories with it And I see a lighthouse in the distance Bleak yet blinking. Maybe I'll stay for the ones that make it to the shore, Maybe I'll stay for the ones that still carry hope.
