Grandpa and the Fireflies – Part III

I was scared.  I was lost.  I was right back where I had started…at the dead 6-point buck.  I looked around and saw the pine trees that had been my friends.  Now, they appeared to be heartless and menacing enemies in the darkening sky above me.   I sat down on the maple tree that had killed the big buck.Continue reading “Grandpa and the Fireflies – Part III”

Grandpa And The Fireflies – Part I

It seems my grandpa knew everything about everything.  If you didn’t believe that, he would have certainly convinced you he was this all-knowing entity.  Grandpa was a bit of a braggart, a blowhard and just a boisterous man who lived life on the edge.Continue reading “Grandpa And The Fireflies – Part I”

Welcome to Stories In The Attic

My name is JD Weldy, author of the supernatural thriller, “Diary: Alone On Earth” available on Amazon practically everywhere else. I haven’t published any further stories in ebook format since that time back in 2011. My rationale on starting a new blog is to get reader feedback on some stories that I have written. But, for reasons I won’t go into, haven’t published. I would greatly appreciate your feedback. As for me, well, I am a retired federal employee who has had the writing itch for as long as I can remember. It is my escape from the real world with all it’s warts and problems. Writing can be like a drug that become an addiction. I lost my addiction for writing for a couple of years. But, now I’m back to try my hand at this lost art again. I am most assuredly an amateur and have no formal training whatsover. I just love to write. If you are an amateur like me or a professional, I”d love to hear from you. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask me in email.

You will see a series of stories in the coming weeks and months that will be thought provoking, problematic in some ways and possibly heartbreaking. I want to reach for the clutches of the reader’s heart in one form or fashion. If I can do that, I can say I’m doing a good job. One of the stories, I actually found in my grandpa’s attic years after he had passed away. I’ll leave it to you, the reader, guess which one. All the rest are of my own creation.
