The Denial – The Drafts

The Denial

He wore a turban on his head even though he was an Episcopalian. He just liked the feel of it and the assumption there was long hair hidden inside. In reality his scalp was sore from the large amounts of glue he had to use daily to make his denial look otherwise.

Happy New Year everyone! It’s been pretty quiet around here but I’m ready to start kicking up some noise. Hold me to that!

This weeks Drafts is a piece that I’ve had ruminating for a while. Frankly, I’ve felt nervous to share it. But today is Monday and I’ve been making a point to be less self censoring, (even if that means causing a stir sometimes) so I decided to go for it. A small step. But hey, everybody has to take their first steps before they start running.

Hope you’ve been enjoying your new year so far! Chat soon!

  1. It is short alright! interesting and mysterious! What do you plan to do with it? I am a person of few words. But when I write, I cannot stop. I should try harder.
    Happy New year!

    • This is micro fiction. I think that I’m going to leave it. I’m starting to build up pieces in this genre. Perhaps an e book at some point? That’s a fun idea. I hadn’t thought of that before. Thanks Katina.

  2. Yes, ” everybody has to take their first steps before they start running.” But don’t forget what Benjamin Franklin said, “Never confuse motion with action.” So make sure you are running in a direction, not in place. πŸ™‚
