First, a little story for you:
Life of a Shepherd, 100-word Story inspired by Transylvania – from DREAMLAND
The shepherd whistls and in the distance the herding dogs stirred the sheep.
The old man snorted as he walked hunchbacked, like an old croocked tree, into the wind.
And the shepherd led, rod on his shoulder, along the road back home, home to a leaking roof, creaky floors, each step closer to his old woman, children, and love.
The wind pushed him faster along the trees planted by his lads, with a swing waiting for grandchildren, with the horse and the lambs.
The man longs again for the fields, the bales, the weather; freedom.

I could say, phew as well! Dreamland took seven long months to create. To research, sieve, dream, write 117 stories of 100-words each. But it’s been fun and I enjoyed the ride, as always.
I’ll go now and meet the sun. After a weekend of accumulating some vitamin D, I’ll crawl back into my writing den and return to work on my historical fiction trilogy.
