Cain't Do Nothing With Love
Cain't Do Nothing With Love
Ellen Morris Prewitt | Scribl
Love is connecting with the man in the maroon Bonneville who killed your Big Naked Guy. Love is responding to grief by inviting the Devil into your home. Love is finding yourself sitting Zen in an Elk’s Lodge. Love is learning your mom is boinking a dude in a squirrel costume. The quirky characters in Cain’t Do Nothing with Love get themselves in the worst pickles, thanks to love . . . can love get them out? Join them as they travel the wandering, unpredictable path of love. Nine of the fourteen stories in Cain’t Do Nothing with Love have been previously published in literary journals, such as Arkansas Review, Gulf Coast Literary Journal, Southern Women’s Review. Several have won regional or national contests. You will note, the stories carry a Southern theme. Many are humorous. The stories also carry a message—doesn’t all good writing? If the message resonates with you, or you just like the story, feel free to click on the Charities page and follow the accompanying links. Do not feel you must make a donation—this is purely optional, at your discretion, take it or leave it.
