Description for my blind and visually impaired readers: There is a water bottle sitting on a rail in the foreground. Several chairs are beyond. A thick book is on one and maybe it’s a notebook on another.


I’m going catharsis here.

The Story: Villain Fodder

Villain Fodder

I mark all his rotten deeds in a beautiful journal. Fine paper. Leather binding. Hand-stitched. Labeled as story ideas with pages of random observations between the notes about him. IF he ever picks up my book, he’ll never know. He’s too dense to see himself in his deeds delineated on those luscious pages.

He gives me the best villain fodder. He, who seems so jolly and nice to those outside his home, but to his “beloved” wife, he is the bane of her existence. Only ignoring his ranting saves her sanity.

But I see.

I know.

I will never forget.

Thanks for reading!

Cheers to your #BLISSfulLife!!
