    I wrote something yesterday. Only 750 words or so, but it wasn’t an email message or a note to my sleeping teenage son saying I’d taken the dog for a walk so if he woke, get his own breakfast. It took me about twenty minutes to write the first sentence, …

    A short story of fun… “Song for the Basilisk,” Ted read, peering at the paperback in his hand. He glanced up at Amita. “What do you think this is about? Aren’t basilisks snakes? They don’t sing.” “It says ‘Song for the Basilisk, not ‘by the Basilisk’,” Amita said, raising her …
