With Thine Own Hands

I did it - just as I said I would ;). Deus Ex Machina had doubts that I could keep it under the maximum 7500 words, but I did it, with room to spare (coming in about 900 words shy of the limit ;).

In response to John Michael Greer's recent challenge, I've written and published to my (other) blog a piece of short fiction - a vignette of a post peak oil world.

I hope you enjoy my story.


  1. Your story is great. Thought provoking and it has an excellent rhythm.

  2. What a wonderful story. Sucked me in and I forgot about everything around me. That's the sign of a great writer. Thank you!

  3. Wow! Wendy, that was brilliant! I especially liked the mention of the dog-hair knitted scarf - reminded me of one of your posts a few months ago ;) You are a gifted writer, obviously writing from alot of insider info...I enjoyed the French/German pidgin language, too. Bravo! ....now we want MORE!

  4. Absolutely LOVE it!!!

  5. Oh! It ended! I want the whole story now..I want to see more of how Oma and Opa live, and teach and share. I want to see the lifestyle of the "wild", hear more about their philosophy, their community, how they discovered the better way.

    Wendy, you have a gift. Please write more!
