Another crazy week has gone by with too few words written, too few pages read, but hundreds of kilos of mushrooms picked. Where did all the time go?
For years now I’ve been thinking I should read more of the stories from the Don’t Read in the Closet Event. They are all free and there are so many I haven’t read. This week I’ve read In Dreams by Eden Winters, a short fantasy story from 2012. I’ve read stories by Ms Eden before and I’ve liked them a lot.
In Dreams is a story about elves, about dreams, and about songs. It’s a story about deception and cruelty but also about love. Loren doesn’t remember who he is or why he is where he is, but little by little things are coming back to him in dreams.
A lovely little story, I liked the dreaminess of it, the ending was a little rushed but a beautiful story nonetheless.
If you’re a member of the Goodreads M/M Romance group you can read the story here.
For three sleepless days, the lyrics have been pounding around in my head. Every time I close my eyes, this is the face that I see. The music is pouring from me, dragging me in its wake and I can almost believe he is real, his haunted eyes singing to me.
This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s “Love is Always Write” event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.
