It’s been almost two weeks since The Storyletter posted some fiction, but we’ve been working hard to bring you stories we know you’ll enjoy. When Thomas Bubb submitted his latest poem, I knew right away it was going to be a hit, and I’m so thrilled to share it with all of you!
“Mortimer Greep and the Gears of Sleep” is about something we’ve all run into in the past few years. Whether it be the heightened political climate on the internet or the strain of world events or even just personal life changes, stress has creeped its way into our lives in any way it can. There’s no perfect solution, but at least in Mortimer’s world he has one thing he can rely on: a friend.
Friendship is very powerful. Who you surround yourself with can shape and mold your world view and even your mood. Friends can offer the necessary perspective shifts needed to get you out of your funk and back on track. If you need a friend, or just people to talk to, we’d love to see you over in The Storyletter community. We’ve started having bi-weekly discussions on Mondays related to reading and writing, and I’ve found it to be the most enjoyable thing since starting the Substack.
Let us know what you think of “Mortimer Greep and the Gears of Sleep” in the comments and share this with all of your friends! I hope it makes someone’s day just as it did mine when I first read it. Have a great day, it’ll be okay! *air hugs* ~ WM
