#StitchedSaturday – Shannon Grant

“Horrible Wax” By Shannon Grant Naomi would always associate Rascal’s House of Horrible Wax with her brother Max. ​He had tried dragging her into the creepy museum during asummer when they were both kids, but to Naomi, that was a no-go. Anxiety would rise up whenever her family would pass by the museum on the main strip of the vacation village of Lake Minnetonka. She would stare up at the sign calling out … Continue reading #StitchedSaturday – Shannon Grant

I'm an active duty Marine.  Reading got me through deployment and eased a lot of stress.  My goal through writing is to give that back.  I write for that service member on deployment, that home sick college student,  that weary traveler stuck at an airport or anyone at home tired and needing an escape from … Continue reading #STITCHEDSATURDAY – Joaquin Bonel

#STITCHEDSATURDAY – Thomas R Clark

Crossing the LineBy Thomas R Clark Scatman sat in the shadows behind the police line, waiting for dinner to take itself out. The falling rain masked his breathing, and the stench of the place covered his own. You don’t shit where you eat, the old adage said. Unless your name is Scatman, in which case … Continue reading #STITCHEDSATURDAY – Thomas R Clark

#StitchedSaturday – MIKE LANE

Mother Woodland by Mike L. Lane I’m pushed through the living wall of static, a pinball bounced between worlds. This can’t be real, or at least I tell myself this as the beast stirs beyond the shattered glass. High-pitched screams pierce my ears in a constant, repeated chant. Parasites underfoot of the thousand young! Blood … Continue reading #StitchedSaturday – MIKE LANE
