birds in a barrel's mission is to release creative nonfiction into the wild.

40 Days & 40 Writes is its first project.

No Bones About It

I can't fake it anymore.

Whenever I am crossed in any way, I must speak my mind.

No more stifling or swallowing.

I am not a fighter.

I am not an instigator.

I am not looking for trouble or trying to brew some.

Life is short and there is no time to waste suffering fools.

The Crone has taken up residence in these bones, no bones about it.

No words to mince today.

Silence speaks loudest.

As If
