I recently entered a writing contest at The Write Practice. I would love to have you stop by, check it out, and leave a comment if you would! The story, Lies & Deceit, is just under 1,000 words and is a snapshot of a “moment” of recent events in my life.
Warning: It has nothing to do with my Sci-Fi/Romance series. It’s a true story; part of the writings for a memoir that I am considering doing. The story reflects some really painful thoughts that came to me at a low period.
The title, Lies &Deceit, may seem a bit odd, but it reflects how I felt at the time. I can handle a lot of things in life, but dishonesty is not one them. Someone asked me what the difference is between lies and deceit.
For me, lies are the untruthful spoken words that leave a person’s mouth. Deceit is action taken that is wrong…like secretly communicating with someone and knowing that action would hurt another person (think sexting for example).
Anyways, a short post this week. I’m hoping to have the new site up and running by next week. Wish me luck!
Until next time…be kind to each other…and to yourselves!
