I Told Mama to Come Up
I told Mama to come up. There was a pause. “Boy,” she said. I asked her why she had caged the elephant. “It done hurt me again.” There was a pause. “Didn’t hurt you none Ma. That’s just your mind.”
I've one book of stories published, a few novellas as well. I am very productive, and I work in IT, and globally, so Scriggler seems a way to shorten the time to audience which I have to otherwise forego due schedule and the publishing market in general. I'm a Berkeley graduate in English literature, but I do tend to stay away from the literary journals. Just a fact, I maintain my inventive freedom that way. I've lived and worked in many different countries around the world as an IT Consultant over the past twenty years. Orwell said of Henry Miller that he was sure Miller would keep writing after Tropic of Cancer, since everyone who gets a taste of it doesn't stop. I'm like that.
