A day late because WordPress was being particularly finicky yesterday, and because I had to write a paper on gendered depictions of Nature in 19th American Lit…

This month on “These Dark Things” we are playing with the notions of the Harvest. It’s a bit vague compared to the playthings of October, but we’re certainly having fun.
My story this week is called “The Taker” and explores the idea of a three-fold Grim, if you will. With a twist, of course 🙂
“Tonight the harvest moon hangs red, and all know well to lock their doors.
All down the lane you can hear the sounds of people drawing deeper into houses, taking steps and whispers with them. It is like a body in the cold, drawing heat into its center. Lose the limbs and save the heart, or some such…”
The whole story, of course, is OVER HERE.
Oh, oh, ALSO.
ON A COMPLETELY UNRELATED NOTE.
I have a new page here on the blog, inspired by the wonderful Michelle Hodkin. It is called FAKE PRAISE. Look, right up there at the top of the page. It kind of makes my life.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
