The cool thing about being a writer is you can look at a common, everyday thing and find something sinister in it. And not just find something sinister, you write a story about it, and, then, you and the readers never look at that commonplace thing the same way again. You, the writer, did that, changed the everyday to the mystical, the horrible, the sinister, or the romantic.
Okay, I rarely turn things into something romantic, but I’m sure one day I will.
I hope you remember this week’s story, “Shadows,” the next time you wash your hands or take a shower or fill the bathtub.
