I love to play with short "just because I want to write" pieces while I'm working on longer, "required" ones. Not only does it keep me refreshed and juiced, but it gives me a glimpse of what might be next.

I predict we'll be seeing more of Ethiag...at least I really, really hope so. This was fabulous! Truly fabulous. You had me, right from those thieving chopsticks!

How fun was that? I would say a lot of fun. Just imagine.

R.J. Anderson said...

Oh, that was fun! I really enjoyed that.

UL said...

What a fabulous imagination you do have, it was beautiful. Thank you and I really love the Mr Linky :)

Ethiag is going to get a knuckle sandwich if she ever dares to show up at my residence. You know how I abhor practical jokers. Actually, could a ghost even feel a knuckle sandwich? I don't think so. I know theres that weird loophole that allows new ghosts to still taste BLT's and doublestuff oreos but I'm pretty sure thats all they can taste or feel on a physical level. Hmph. I no longer want to come back in my next life as a piece of chocolate that can eat itself all day long. I now want to come back as a ghost just like Ethiag and prank all through the day and night hours.

This was pure pleasure to read...I could picture this as a beautifully illustrated book -- it was so visual!

I am now afraid to sleep because I have a mustache. But I think I am safe because I am not a gentleman. Is it possible to just get a trim?

Amber said...

Hmmm...Did you base this ghost on anybody you know? Like you BFF if she were a ghost?
Very cute!

:)

Now the word-verification on our blog is Yutsoh. Whatcha think? Wanna crank out another short story? Yutsoh the zombie hunter, perhaps?

You are hilarious, girl!

That's gorgeous but I'll be careful snoozing with my mouth in the 0 position again ~)! Thanks Heaps for Mr Linky and YOU too. xx

Oh, I bet you had fun writing this - I know I had fun reading it!
All except for the part about the 'beetle in the mouth when kissing' business - I was eating pepitas whilst reading this, and almost spit them out, lol.

Thanks for sharing this - it was fun to read, but it does need a 'do not eat pepitas while reading this' sticker on it. :-)

Beautifully written. I loved the photo too.

Patois said...

What a delightful story. I just enjoyed it so much.

paisley said...

in all of the weeks i have participated in sunday scribblings,, i don't believe i have ever seen you write.. this was quite refreshing....

colleen said...

Delightful! I thought it was an excerpt from a storybook. What an imp she is! We all have a little of her in us. At least I do.

I was in town just now (little rural mountain town) and saw your ladies display! I wanted to pull someone over and say, "I know her. She blogs, you know!"

tumblewords said...

Never a dull moment. Ethiag's a thousand laughs and spells encouragement for the more staid and waitful. Love her!

Cheryl Alena Bartram said...

I completely enjoyed reading that!

Stacy said...

This was a treat.

Secret Agent Mama said...

Highly enjoyable!!

Rob Kistner said...

Wonderfully whimsical -- but I don't like Ethiag... a lot!

DJPare said...

Great way to come up with a name!

Loved this! Very fun.

forgetfulone said...

That was a riot! How do you come up with those things? I love it! And it's a treat to read the writing of one of the SS princesses.

deirdre said...

I knew those word-verifications were good for something.

Good story - more maybe?

Sentient Marrow said...

Very playful. Thanks for the read!

Jeremy Lavine said...

I really enjoyed your story, Laini. The ghost girl kinda reminds me of my grandmother, who's a ghost herself now, but after reading this I'm sure she's having alot of fun. Might explain why I ate a fly yesterday when I stuck my head out a bus window. She was always a joker!

Just begging to be illustrated!!

Ah yes, the theraputic hum of scribblings. I miss them. I need to make more time for them. Don't you hate it when they suck though too?

Working on it...
