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 and Writing from Prompts

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.
