67 Extracted Words – The Tease

August 2021



I write short fiction, flash fiction, essays and novels. This month’s Tease is from a thought rediscovered for a work in progress.

There was a hint in the air today, like an eyelash out of alignment on Mother Nature’s face. Perhaps just a trick of the light that divided the shadows, shadows that stretched just a bit longer than they did the day before.

However subtle, the change marks that turn many of us look for, especially after a summer as hot and devastating as this one.

[Author’s note: The Tease normally appears on the 26th of each month, see why here, but due to technical difficulties (I messed up my publication selections) this instsallment is a few days late. Apologies]
