Poison Pie

baked pie

I gently press the crust atop my poison pie.  The easiest way to a man’s vulnerable heart is through his stomach.


This microfiction was written for the Weekend Writing Prompt #103, vulnerable.

    Hm… not 4 and 20 blackbirds eh?
    I can’t do Stephen King… Even some of the murder mysteries I read I only read during the day.
    I like the shorty fun murder mysteries 😉

    (oh, your last comment at my place… I pulled you out of spam… Some folks end up in trash. I wish WP would straighten that out…)

        One friend said she thought she was on a ‘Too many comments’ list. Now that’s ridiculous if you are ‘supposed’ to visit. And it only happened on one site I had not the other. WP keeps sending me ads to upgrade. I think they should be able to keep their free sites clear first. I shouldn’t have to pay for what they should um… keep clean and up to date.

        So for years I only work out of the dashboard so I can see right away if there is anything in the trash or spam and resolve as soon as possible.

        Time to write an email to that contest and tell them to look in their spam and trash.

        Through the years I’ve been switching up prompts. When the Host doesn’t even visit… not a good sign. I also don’t care for the ones that say you must visit at least X number of others who write for our prompt.

        One of the reasons I stopped doing this one particular chap book (Years ago) was that while there wasn’t an entry fee (which I never pay) they wanted me to use their editing service (for a short poem, really?) at $5 a poem. Yeah, no thanks. Also almost got sucked into a vanity publisher… they are really the pits.

        Write what you like and enjoy what you do. 🙂
