Pie Fondue

The Fondue Writer’s Club finishes our offering of Thanksgiving stories today with Kathy Kexel’s “Pie Wars.” Again, I want you to note the sweetness going on in this tale. Literally — all those sweet pies. But one particular phrase caught my attention and that was her description of ‘substantial sandwiches.’

I want one of those.

Today’s free Christmas story from Kathy Kexel is an excellent example of what I’ve been saying all year. The Fondue Writers Club has the best writers. Period. If Hallmark and any sense at all, they would get Kathy Kexel under contract right now to adapt today’s ABSOLUTELY FREE story into a screenplay to show next year during the Christmas season.

Although, I have to admit, I can’t tell if some of the things eaten and drank in here are German or Klingon. They could be both. I think they are German, but in my heart this is a Klingon Christmas story.

Captains Log — Stardate THANKSGIVING!

I have wonderful news for you!

Today begins the ‘Thanksgiving Stories” I promised you from the Fondue Writers Club. Each one of us are taking a day to provide a FREE story that has a general theme of Thanksgiving. You’ll recall in the past we’ve brought you COVID Chronicles, Halloween tales, unthemed shorts, and now THANKSGIVING STORIES!

You’re welcome.

Today we start with Kathy Kexel who goes science fiction on us. I am so proud of her. When you read her story, look for my last name in the text. It is in there, I promise. I think she is virtue signaling.

Click on your present location to read Kathy’s logbook narrative, “Other” and come back tomorrow for another FREE Thanksgiving themed story.

Creepy doesn’t come natural to Kathy Kexel the way it does to the rest of us in the little writer’s collaboration. She’s the Marsha Brady of the Fondue Writers Club. She is sweet, gentle, and innocent. Kind of the opposite of Joe Shaw.

Her writing strength is the flowing descriptive of a scene — the colors, the boards, the things just off view, the fabric weight and type. Today’s story, the second of our Halloween themed freebies, is her showing off these skills. I didn’t see the twist coming at the end. The delightful part was the very mid-century Americana feel. I think you’ll enjoy it. Click on the ugly oval rug on the floor in the picture below to read Kathy’s new free story, “1313”.
