So here's the good news: I have a new freelance contract that will earn me more monies (glorious monies!), and DH all-but-officially has his own job offer nailed down.

Here's the bad news: my schedule has been thrown into crazy-go-nuts land, and it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to settle into a new routine for a few weeks.

So, for those of you who actually Watch me (oh, faithful few!), this means that the Everyday Vignettes will be delayed just a little bit longer. Let's say no more than a week. I haven't abandoned dA and the Everyday Vignettes project entirely. I just have to find a new normal and work my hobby back into that.

Hang in there, kids. And keep creating!

Not dead, not abandoned (no, really). Still planning on resuming Everyday Vignettes, but still working out when to carve out time for EV. Bear with me.

It's been a bit of a busy week. I participated in a short fiction challenge, and then had relatives visiting. Everyday Vignettes will return shortly!
My grandfather told me never to go to Fingers Lake. Too many people had gone there only to vanish, and the ones who had returned always ended up going insane. Those few survivors came with stories of hands reaching out of the ground, grabbing ankles, and anguished voices on the wind whispering, "Save us, save us." That's why they called it Fingers Lake.

No one knew where the hands had come from. Some said that a serial killer had buried his victims there. Others claimed they were unlucky boaters that had drowned in the lake. All agreed that the hands were hauntings of some sort, and no one doubted the survivors' stories.

I lay awake many nights thinking about Fingers Lake. I had nightmares of reaching hands, tortured souls, and desperate whispers. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I went to Fingers Lake.

I slipped out in the dead of night and waited until dawn, when the hands were said to appear. As the first rays of sunlight shone through the clouds with a weak, pale light, they emerged. Gnarled hands reaching from the sands of the lake shore.

Then the wind picked up, and I heard the voices. "Save us...save us..." they wailed. Sobs and anguished moans echoed around me. I clapped my hands over my ears, but I could not shut out the voices. My heart hammered in my chest, and my hair all stood on end. I could think of almost nothing else than running away.

But I did not run. Instead, I forced myself to walk towards the hand closest to me. I took a deep breath and uncovered my ears. "It's all right," I called into the wind. "I'm here to help you."

And then I reached down and grasped the first hand.
Fingers Lake
Just a spooky little vignette to send you off on this Halloween night.

Well thank you! I'm quite fond of your comic The Wounded, and finally decided to watch you mostly to follow that, but also because your other work is fantastic, too. :D (Big Grin)
