The Woman that Tamed Two Flying Snakes

Monique, the blind one with twisted horns, she drives. Jake the Living Torso is her co-pilot; born legless, two batrachian hands sticking out of his shoulders, his belly a wide, flat callus.

But after sundown, Jake's got eyes like a cat.
"We're close," he says. "On 3, hang a left."

Circular Forms

And now it's time for an announcement. 
(Two, in fact.)

I'm going to dial back on my regular series, What can they teach you about writing, because

a) I need time to do other things.
b) Having written 93,000 words for that series alone, I feel that I've begun to repeat myself.
c) I'd like to concentrate on giving you more substantial stuff with each story prompt; photos, videos, links to research papers and whatnot. I would also like to focus on delivering shorter, more diverse articles, and What can they teach you... has been taking up 95% of my writing time.

To be perfectly clear, the series will go on - with new pieces coming out once or twice a month, my schedule permitting. What does this mean to you? Only one thing: Better posts. Richer ones, with more sources and more suggestions for further reading.

Announcement number two: 
I've decided to make my photographic work available on, just in time for the holiday season. Two of my prints have already been selected for the society6 shop: the next step (below, left) and give the moon a little kiss for me (below, right).
