A message from the author of today’s story:Do you ever wonder as you are reading a story, or hearing one, such as on a podcast, for example, what or whom has inspired a particular story? Picture this: imaginary “directions” or “instructions” for a story that the author creates– after the story has been written–or told. Imagine that these “directives” led to this story–which in actuality they did not–well at least the author had no idea of any directives of any sort when the story came into being.For example, consider these “directions” for the story which is about to be told: “Develop and cultivate some awful but real fear of some possible real things. This cannot be a fear of imaginary or fantasy things. You could use, as an example, the fear of things falling from windows of buildings. Expand this fear majestically, as you wish. (Optional: cowering is permitted–but this must be real cowering as opposed to symbolical.) Good luck!– Carl Krampf
