Perception - 101 Fiction


The little girl's a sweetie.

The old lady's crazy.

Maybe. Maybe not.

Depends on how you look at it.

And if you head over to 101 Fiction's June issue, you can read my story, Perception, and judge for yourself.

After all, the devil is in the details.

I'm taking a blogging break for the rest of June. I'll still be around but won't be posting anything new (probably) until July's IWSG.

  5. Wow! That was a really good story. I still wasn't sure if Helen is seeing things as they are or in a not-quite-so-sane way, but it was a really cool story. If she is in her right mind ... ooh, what neighbors!
    Have a wonderful June!

  9. Definitely going to check it out. I know little girls can be the devil (Bad Seed, Orphan, Case 39).

    I've nominated you for the Liebster Award, too! http://www.thewritemage.com/2017/06/liebster-award-2017.html
