One Trick Pony

For the last fifteen or so years I've been living with a bunch of dead guys at a motel in West Texas. Like the characters in my stories, I'd really like to move on, see the world, go places. But I'm just like them. Anchored by love, worn down by circumstances and fascinated by how much there really is underneath it all. So I keep writing their stories and tell myself that someday, when I've got this all out of my system, I'll write deep, meaningful literature about... something else. In the meantime, this is a place for the short attention spanned. I'm making a commitment to keep it small here. Flash fiction and scenes from the life inspired by, The Bella Vista Motel.

Thanks for reading.

Don't Worry About Pamila

She's doing just fine. I got her all set up in a nice little room with no distractions. As long as she does her work on my story, I even feed her every once in a while.

As soon as she's done, she'll come out to play. Oh, and she asked me to wish you all a Happy New Year.




  1. We miss her dearly. Can't wait for another story. Hope you let her release one soon.

  2. I hope you're feeding her well. Authors like Pamila deserve only the finest comestibles. Hey Romeo, wish her a Happy New Year, will ya? Tell her we miss her around the joint.

  3. Aw shit Romeo ... we sprung Ms Pamila out the back hatchway hours ago and headed into town in a rusty white convertible with headlights not turned on. Mrs Webster up there is not as innocent as she appears for she had the crowbar idea in the first place. Ant? Well hell, he's all about the hootch. Danielle winks in all the right places and 'round, 'round, get around, we get around. We'll have her back in the mornin' and you'll be none the wiser, Bud. Her head should be swimmin' in story lines or the residue of the aforementioned hootch.

    Me? It's all about the caper.

  4. Good thinking Romeo. Tell her Happy New Year and type faster!

  5. Whew! Glad to hear Pamela is doing alright, and that she's even being fed. She sure is missed. Looking forward to having her back. Tell her that, will ya?

  6. Wnderful, happy new yaers, Pamila. <3

  7. I'm sure that this Romeo geezer will pass on my New Year greetings to you Pamela. Funny, I always pictured him with a fedora and facial scars.

  8. I hope this will be the best year for you and the Bella Vista. You have a great site.

  9. Can't wait for her return - it's been entirely too quiet in the writing universe without some fiction from Ms. Payne.................
