Rainbow Snippets

It’s been a couple weeks. Let’s see if I can get back into the swing of things. I’m sick and heading back from vacation so I might still fall down on the job.

This is from a WIP novella set in Cassadaga FL, one of the places I used to live and an active spiritualist community. Ryan is one of the psychics who work there.

Ryan drew his shield around him, letting his psychic senses dampen down. All day, most days, he dropped his armor, walking around exposed, vulnerable on all sides to the flood of stimuli around him. Such was the life of a professional psychic. He couldn’t afford to cut himself off when he was on the job. His clients depended on his abilities. While he could cold read a person to give Houdini a run for his money, Ryan was the real deal when it came to being psychic. Houdini would have had a helluva time debunking his abilities.

If you’d like to play along, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook community where we post up 6 sentences of one of our LGBT stories every Saturday. It’s been fun and you can find it here. Be sure to check out all the offers! It’s been a great supportive group!

    1. Thanks. He can protect himself and only exposes himself to do his work. Houdini was also known for doing ‘cold readings’ like some so-called psychics and he spend the latter part of his life debunking them at the height of the spiritualist movement.
