Here is this week’s list of short stories, encouragement, and links from my favourite corners of the web.
Summoning Demons with Sandwiches. What a creative idea for a story. I can’t stop giggling at it. No, it isn’t frightening at all for those of you who don’t like the scary stuff. Think of it more like a sitcom that happens to star a few demons who are nothing at all like the traditional depictions of them.
I’m a Hill, You Can Roll Down Me. This sounds like a Pixar movie song.
Decades After Foster Care, I Found My Long-Lost Brother. If only this could be a full-length book. What a story.
Exercise Cuts Appetite for Fatty Food. It will be interesting to see if this study can be replicated in the future. I had never heard of this theory before.
Imagine something with me – you’re standing in a crowded space, and someone steps on your foot. It’s not the first time someone has stepped on your foot that week, or even that day. In fact, people tend to step on your foot a lot, and always have. Sometimes you even avoid going certain places or engaging in certain activities, hoping to reduce the frequency with which your foot gets stepped on.
Imagine that this time, though, you decide to say something.
