WEP Remember The Words

Wait. Watch. Wait.

Hug the wall.
Be a shadow.
Remember the words.


Nothing. No things.
Up. Watch the broken bits. No time to waste.


Remember the words.
Keep to the left. All to the left. Left left left.


Up on the toes. Toes. Hurry.
Nine was hungry. Always hungry.
Up. Right. Up up up.


Tippy tippy tippy.
Tap tap tap.
Tippy tap.
Tippy tippy tippy.
Tap tap tap.
Use the fingers.
Tippy tap.


Remember the words.
Pass them along.
Don’t listen. Don’t listen.
Seven screams. Always screams.
Up up up.


Right left right right right left right right.
Left left left.
Pass them on.
To who?


Head and shoulders.
Over the gap. Up and over.
Head and shoulders.
Over I go.


Knees and toes. Tap the knees and toes.
Tippy tap.
No, ears.
Ears and eyes. Ears and eyes.
So many ears and eyes.


Be a shadow.
Right right right.
Not there.
Over the gap.
Over the gap again.
Head and shoulders.


Ears and nose.
Use the wall. Pull. Up and over.
Up and over.
Or down.
Down down down.


Eyes and nose.
Knees. Use the knees.
Under the blocks.
Over the blocks.
Behind the block.


Remember the words.

Who's there?

IWSG: Secrets and Bloo Moose

The Insecure Writer's Support Group is the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. He, his clones, minions, friends, and fellow authors make it an amazing event every month.

IWSG badge

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!


June 3 question - Writers have secrets! What are one or two of yours, something readers would never know from your work?

Before I get to the rest, I have to say it was really difficult to put this post together amidst all the difficulties in the world. I hope you are all well and safe. I hope you are working in your own way to make the world a better place, a kinder place, and a safer place. Racism and prejudice have no place in our world. Ever. Black lives matter. LGBTQ+ lives matter. Stay safe. Stay kind.

On to IWSG

Secret #1

This probably isn't a secret to my bloggy friends because I've mentioned it before. But if a person only knew me from reading my books (nonfiction on dementia and contemporary romance), they'd be surprised to find that I am also a huge Speculative Fiction (SciFi and fantasy) fan. The movies I watch and love all tend to fall into that genre.

Secret #2

One of my jobs as a teen was to teach cartooning to kids. I'm not an artist but I've always enjoyed doodling and cartooning. They couldn't find an instructor who was qualified so I got the job. We had a lot of fun over those weeks!

How about you? Any secrets you'd like to share? Any SF fans or cartoonists out there?


PS: My Bloo Moose romances are coming out in July! If you'd like to read an ARC or you would like more information, check out THIS POST. Thanks!
