Rerun – March 25, 2023

graphx: spwilcen Recycling is all the rage… This is a repost. Sort of. “Claxbury Corners” wandered the pages of spwilcenwrites starting in January 2021, wrapping in May of 2022.  Subsequently buried behind the “Fiction” tab and unavailable to most readers, the link below is offered to serious readers who missed it, forgot it, or wouldContinue reading “Rerun – March 25, 2023”

If You are Interested – March 23, 2023

graphx: spwilcen PSA Just completed a link to the Fiction/noir page allowing access to the whole of “Puppetman” previously published as a six-part serial. In case you missed it. Or [snicker] in case you are a noir(police) fan and want to re-read it. Lexiphobes “Puppet Man” is too much of a challenge for you. WhileContinue reading “If You are Interested – March 23, 2023”

How Was Your Day? – July 21, 2022

graphix: spwilcen Part 1 of 3 Let me tell you about mine first. Distraction For the third week now, I’ve managed very little writing.  Not much blogwork either. Witness missed posts and inferior quality of those I managed.  To say nothing of the fact I’ve done nothing on the piece I’m planning to submit byContinue reading “How Was Your Day? – July 21, 2022”

OCW Episode X – July 1, 2022

graphix: spwilcen Episode X – One Down, Three to Go I watched Tommy Nondescript walk dejectedly down my driveway.  He turned at the curb, took two steps and was out of sight. I lost interest.  Did feel sorry for the man, working hard for a living and all, but was thankful his odd sense ofContinue reading “OCW Episode X – July 1, 2022”

Am I Not Scientific? – June 26, 2022

graphix: spwilcen Well kiddies, belatedly reviewing my newsfeeds – behind for all the reading necessary attempting to wedge understanding into my noggin about the Roe/Wade hoopla – I came across an article that suggests now and again I sparkle with genius. The Desert Sun, early this morning Spacific Time Zone, reported on a plan toContinue reading “Am I Not Scientific? – June 26, 2022”

Claxbury Corners – May 24, 2022

grqphix: spwilcen Afterthoughts This ends the Claxbury Corners’ vignettes.  I’m going to refer to it as a novella if you don’t mind.  While from the onset it was “plotted,” it does not honor the “novel” form with strong plotlines.  It is closer to, but longer than a vignette, certainly longer than a common anecdotal story. Continue reading “Claxbury Corners – May 24, 2022”

Claxbury Corners – May 23, 2022

graphix: spwilcen Episode XX – Loose Ends Much has happened, many lives have changed from the time I introduced Leron Tackertt and June Maverson to where I last left-off.  Years ago, Leron’s “service station” as it was called then, for me symbolized all that life was, many, now many years ago.  Bucolic, calmer, quietly respectful. Continue reading “Claxbury Corners – May 23, 2022”

Old Crew Wine Episode IX – May 15, 2022

graphix: spwilcen Episode IXDarkside Tommy Carrying a small duffle bag jammed with underwear, tees, socks, my shaving gear, and three pair of clean Levi’s, I pounded the button on the garage wall to open the garage door. Someone or something with a two-pack-a-day cigarette habit gravelled my name. It caught me by surprise.  Actually, putContinue reading “Old Crew Wine Episode IX – May 15, 2022”

Old Crew Wine – Field Report – May 13, 2022

graphix” spwilcen Episode VIIIField Report Mouseover. Assigned words today are violence, sleuthing, unbeknownst, harbinger, and trophies.  Best we dispense with these words quickly so as not to impede the flow of an otherwise delicious episode. Oh. For you lexiphobes – under 500 words. C Connie Warburton suggested we have late lunch at a Thai jointContinue reading “Old Crew Wine – Field Report – May 13, 2022”
