Bonus 49: Graph Time – Introduction

A new and experimental episode type called, “Graph Time.”

Graph Time episodes will involve me drawing something on a piece of graph paper and describing it to you.    This episode will introduce you to the premise of themed Town Centers  which may be a future type of Graph Time episode.

*Caution*  You will hear the sound of pencil drawing near the end of the episode.  When I listened to the final recording, I didn’t find the sound very relaxing.  I may try a different method of drawing in the next Graph Time episode.

Bonus 48: Story Time – The Story Behind Little Miss Muffet by L Frank Baum

L Frank Baum returns!    Have you ever wondered the full story behind the nursery rhyme, Little Miss Muffet?

L Frank Baum has written a wonderful fictional back story to explain : Who is Little Miss Muffet? What is a tuffet? Why was she eating curds and  where do curds come from?  Why was she frightened by a spider?

It all comes to light thanks to our old buddy L Frank Baum.

A guided imagery of  “The Birth of Venus”, painted by Sandro Botticelli.   I’ll explain a brief summary of the contents in the painting and then I’ll try to repaint a vision of it in your mind as I describe what I see.

Bonus 41: “Chemical XX-88” – a sci-fi story

This is a science fiction story I wrote in my first year college writing class.  We were all given one image and one quote and then had to write a story which involved both.

You can see my image on Patreon (man standing in ocean, facing shoreline, looking at factory billowing out smoke), and my quote was “no one, of course, even noticed he was missing…”

I wrote about an underwater, human-like species who is being threatened by something happening in the above-water human world.   Cue the suspenseful music : )

Bonus 40: “It’s a Long Story” – a personal essay

Enjoy a story I wrote as a first year college student, I was 17 or 18 years old at the time.   It is a strange court case that takes place in my brain and the main characters are Judge Ego, Prosecuting Attorney Id, and Defense Attorney Super Ego.    The case is about whether or not I should drink a beer.
