  • To the Year

    This one was kind of hard for Michael and me to agree on, but we did in the end. “So,” I asked, “if you could time travel to any year, which one would it be?” “I’d like to meet the Romans,” he said. “I’d also like to meet Jesus Christ, so I’d like to go […]

    Last July, I started writing some science fiction. Twenty-nine story parts later, I’m still writing “Time Gone By.” I’ve put all the links to the blog posts and the podcast episodes in one place.

    Time Gone By – Part 24 – Science Fiction

    This is a work of fiction. The drive to the airport was a long one, and by the time we arrived, I was thoroughly sick of hearing Freckles ask, “Are we there yet?” As I stepped out of the van, I had the strange feeling that my phone was going to ring and it would […]

  • Time Gone By – Part 21 – Science Fiction

    This is a work of fiction. I shook my head. “No. We’re not going to LA.” “But you have to—” I held up my hand. “Stop right there. I’m responsible for four children, five cats, and two dogs. We’re not going to LA.” “I want to go in the time machine,” Freckles said. “No you […]

  • Time Gone By – Part 20 – Science Fiction

    This is a work of fiction. My phone beeped. “Do you mind if I check to see who’s texting?” Louisa gestured for me to go ahead. I took the phone from my purse, being careful that the package of cigarettes didn’t show. Stacey: I’m leaving him. I’m at the airport now. Mom: What’s going on? […]

  • Time Gone By – Part 17 – Science Fiction

    “That little doggie isn’t even big enough to eat solid food yet,” I said. “By the time he is, he’ll love the cats and not want to hurt them, let alone eat them.” “That’s right,” the woman behind the counter said. “So if you’re sure, then you can take them all home now.” “We are, […]

  • Time Gone By – Part 14 – Science Fiction

    This is a work of fiction. I was not looking forward to the conversaton I was going to have with Sammy when it was his turn to help me. It wouldn’t be until dinner, so I would just have to get through the day. We’d just eaten breakfast when my phone rang. I looked at […]

  • Time Gone By – Part 6 – Science Fiction

    This is a work of fiction. “What are we doing now?” Freckles asked. “Let’s all go for a hike.” “I need a nap,” Sammy said. “Can I stay here?” “Yes, but are you sure you don’t want to come with us?” “I can’t have a nap if I’m hiking, can I?” “No, but it might […]
