The unbearable likeness of being Micro

Hey All,

As usual thanks for stopping by.  After literally tens of requests for some more micro stories that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.  So for around the next seven weeks I’ll be posting micro stories.

My goal with these stories is of course to attempt to tell a complete story in a paragraph or two.  However, they will also collectively tell one whole story…hopefully.

Once I’ve posted them as individual stories I’ll do one final post of all of them together so that the full story is laid out.

The two big, key words to keep in mind here are attempt and hopefully.

All the links to my other useless crapola will be after the story.  Hope you guys like it.

Best,

Jonathan

SOLACE

The wooden gate creaked only slightly when he opened it.

The smell of the blossoms was both intoxicating and relaxing.

For the first time in a long time he felt safe.

With every step toward the door, the shadows of his past fell further behind him.

The singular lamppost, glowing a soft yellow in the moonlight welcomed him home.

Happy Monday, let’s do this!

Hello Again and welcome back to the mother ship.

I’ve been obsessing over some new music this weekend.  Currently I’ve got Adele’s and Cold Play’s new albums on heavy rotation and man I am just a grooving fool.

Annie Lennox will probably always be my favorite vocalist, there’s something about that voice that gives me goose bumps every time I hear it, but Adele is inching up day by day, year by year.  That lady is just really something.  I highly recommend you check that out.

Cold Play gets a lot of shit from people, I don’t know why I think they’re awesome and I don’t care what you think, it’s damn good stuff.

But if you’re in the mood for some indie stuff and you want more unsolicited recommendations from someone you don’t know, with absolutely no qualifications I have two; The Screaming Females and Dengue Fever are both awesome and should be shoved into your Spotify or whatever you use to listen.  I use cds because I’m old and that’s how I roll.

Have you stopped by my amazon page to waste time and possibly pick up a copy of my novel or short story collection yet?  Well why not?  I mean it’s not like you’re not going to end up on amazon eventually for some reason.  You know it’s not just a site to pick up bulk candy bars and sexual lubricants, it’s got books too, lot’s of them and two of them are mine.

My novel The Geek has even been professionally reviewed and that really insightful person gave it five out of five stars.  No I did not have to perform any sexual favors.  Yes I would have considered it.

Over on the podcast I’m hanging with my buddy Tyler and his pal Josh and we are really getting our nerd on so if you’re into that sort of thing why not head over, it don’t cost nothin’ http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

Facebook? You bet! http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

And why not stop by goodreads and check out my page there, I’m happy to answer any questions you have, even ones about math, but I’m pretty sure my answer’s will be wrong with the math questions http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

I’ve got to skedaddle lots of stuff going on around here but I do want to thank you for stopping by and hope you come back Wednesday for the update.

Take Care,

Jonathan
