“How Still Waters Run”

Dear Followers of Lazarus-Ink.blog

The story that is unfolding now through the end of July continues in the blog as always, narrated in first person by the character/literary device, Lazarus.

Also, for this part of the story, I chose to write the same story again, but in a different voice — that of ten-year-old Simon. So, separate from the blog is this stand alone novella, a long short story, “How Still Waters Run.” It is a mirror image of the story line, but from a completely different point of view.

“How Still Water’s Run” deals with the topic of child grief. So one wonders why would a fiction writer, with all the power in the world to make-up only happy endings, choose to venture into that dark place? It is because I needed to write it. May you, the reader, discover also the need to know the life and beauty amid the tears.

I am including the novella here as a pdf for free download. (As with the blog it is free for reading. The copyright for sharing or copying is ©Julie K. Marlin, 2023.)

Thank you,

J.K. Marlin
