Unscripted

Out here in the woods, I feel like an actor about to shoot an important movie scene but I don’t remember any of the lines of the script.  In high-school drama class, I used to ad-lib a lot when I forgot my lines. But this isn’t a drama class.  This is real life. What do …

Strumming Away

PHOTO PROMPT © Bill Reynolds "Why are we out here in the boon docks?" Kassandra asked Nick. "I figured that out here you can play the guitar and not scare people away." "Very funny.

Bianca’s Story

I was the ugly, fat girl and he was the hot guy at school.  Who would have thought that we’d end up going to the prom together?  High-school was a nightmare for me.  I was constantly bullied by the girls.  One day we were rehearsing for a school play and I was in my costume …
