A Huss-ssay is my “take” on world situations – sometimes; and my own situations – other times.
Huss-ssays are essays meant to be seriously funny, with an offbeat look at life’s foibles, and how we humans constantly exhibit our propensity to be … well, human. We are dramatic at times and at times have accomplished unimaginable feats. We also have been unimaginable fools.
I hope you have as much fun reading Huss-ssays as I do writing them!
Welcome to my world. It’s off-kilter and that’s they way I like it. Life is a serious matter and as far as I know, this is it. So we better damn well enjoy it while we got it.
My approach is to “bend life without breaking it.” When I bend my thoughts, life makes the most sense to me.
I enjoy looking at life through my BLOG – laughing at the absurdities of our seriousness. A good laugh helps me through each day.
I encourage you to reply, respond, connect, and somehow let me know your thoughts.
Flash Fiction: A complete story written in 1,000 or fewer words.
Writing Prompt: A story idea that jump starts a writer. The prompt is folded into the story verbatim or with minimal alteration. Here’s a prompt: “Wearing a Santa elf hat, the calico cat stared quizzically at me as I …”
Hmmm, as I what?
… squeezed off a couple of rounds from my Glock …
… slid under Mrs. Claus’ sheets with a hearty Ho, Ho, Ho …
… asked the cat, “Are all the elves, cats?”
Get the picture?
I try to turn out a complete story in 30 minutes. The pressure pushes my creative juices to the max. Then I will “play with” my basic story to develop it more thoroughly.
Here’s some Flash Fiction I wrote from prompts. If you want to know more details, please contact me through my website. I’ll be happy to connect with you.
Have fun with prompt writing. I do.
