Hey Coffin Hoppers! Welcome to The Road to Nowhere…

I’ll be posting EIGHT drabbles during the EIGHT days of Coffin Hop this year. At the end of the hop, I’ll be choosing four winners from the comments left on the accumulated posts to each receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card! So speak up, and speak often – each day’s comment will be an additional entry into the random drawing.

While you’re at it, be sure to visit my other two blogs, ‘Spreading the Writer’s Word‘ and ‘Sotet Angyal – The Dark Angel‘ for new features every day, and plenty of goodies up for grabs. And don’t forget to visit the other hard working Coffin Hoppers who are doing their best to make this years hop as spooktacular as possible!

Good luck, and have fun!!!



 The Mill

windowI look out upon all that is left. Sunlight scorches this land; with morning comes heat, an assault upon existence. With evening, a frigid wind; though still a brief respite. I squint as I glare down among those who wallow at my feet. My stone begins its grind, my furnace stokes; a rival to the blistering rays without, but only barely. Their faces turn up, beseeching. I watch as they enter my opening maw; again as they depart in concert with the tenors screech from my bowels. Stragglers dally, grubbing for scraps. Something needs fill the stone on the ‘morrow.



A Few Details About The Drabble

I belong to a writing group called Pen of the Damned, this image and drabble first appeared as one of our comparative flash features. Click on this Pen of the Damned link to read how the other members drew inspiration from this image as well. Oh, and just a little pat on the back – I’m the photographer, too!
