Beads of sweat popped out on Gylly’s forehead, as he steered the Nertian spaceship low over the cloudy target planet, K4. His mission was to pass along the notebook containing priceless information from his doomed planet.

Hovering even closer, the clouds cleared and he could make out a populated area.  A crescendo of accomplishment swept over him as Gylly  ejected the notebook containing the precious algorithm and watched it fall, landing on a rock outcropping near the domiciles.

The people below heard the notebook land and picked it up curiously,  then cast it aside. It was not in braille!



About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

  1. Nan. The link you provided to Rochelle Wissoff-fields’ blog returns one to your blog post. And I see you couldn’t link up to the host site. Here’s what you do:

    1. Go to https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2016/04/13/15-april-2016/
    2. Find the blue frog icon, Rochelle uses the Inlinks service and not Mr Linky as in Dverse’s case. Click on the frog and it will go to the page where you can link your story.
    3. At the bottom of the list of the other participants is a small blue ”add your link”. Click on it and paste the link of your post with the 100-word story on it and press enter. It will take you through a few steps, i.e. whether you’d like to tweet it. If so, click the box if not click skip this step.
    4. Once linked you will be back on the page with all the pics of the other participants. Click on the photo and it will take you their site to read and comment.
    To change the link you have so it will go to Rochelle’s host site, highlight it, press the link button and type in her web address.

    Hope this makes sense. If you have any questions, email me on proartist.viljoen79@gmail.com, or just answer this comment. I’ll check back in during the course of the day. 🙂
