Writer Unboxed

Part One of the very first interview I was ever asked to do is up on Writer Unboxed over here.

I remember thinking when Jan originally asked about it that September seemed very far away. And now it is here, with Jan’s interviewing skills and my babbling answers on display for the internet reading public.

Part II of my Writer Unboxed interview with the lovely & talented Jan O’Hara is up over here. Thanks again to Jan & everyone at WU!

flax-golden tales: deceptively simple demands with deadly consequences

deceptively simple demands with deadly consequences

They told me it would ask questions but it doesn’t. Questions would involve question marks, these are demands.

They are fairly simple demands, which is good, since the only way to answer is with the blocks: carved wooden blocks like children’s toys, each with a single letter emblazoned on one side.

Your name, it demands.

I look through the blocks, already starting to feel familiar beneath my fingers, but there aren’t enough. There’s only one A, and no Zs.

I spell out “No” but that doesn’t satisfy it.

Your name.

I wonder what will happen if I lie.

They warned me not to lie.
