  1. Ummm...blog?

    I'd LIKE to say I totally know what I'm doing and have done this a million times before, but I really don't. Never actually written in a blog before, but I have a strange hatred for the number zero. So the fact that it says 'Blog Entries: 0' makes me extremely annoyed.
    I thought I should fix that.
    Soo....what do I write here?.....
    HEY! DUDE!! It's almost my birfday The weather's really crappy, but I'm supposed to be driving down to big city Calgary tomorrow for a family birfday ...

  2. Voices in my Head

    There are a thousand voices in my head, they're all talking and arguing and trying to find their way on to my paper without permission. What this really comes down to is that I'm having trouble defining one voice from the muck and din of the rest. They all have something to say and they all think their opinion is more important than anyone else, so how do I separate them from my own voice and give them their own life?

    The trouble with characters is that sometimes they fall into the ...
  3. And, Chapters 25-32

    [IMG]http://www.edwardpicot.com/and/andicon.jpg[/IMG]

    "They heard Dixon's foot. A stern thought compressed her brows, and set her teeth. It was Dixon's measured tread. They heard her walk."

    Continuing the abridged version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South - abridged on the principle of leaving out all the important bits. The sinister Dixon may or may not be dead. The long-awaited Frederick arrives at last, only to be no more spoken of. Margaret fancies porters. ...

  4. My Brother Please Give Me Bread

    My brother please give me bread,
    Her worn out dark eyes, sunken into the once pretty forehead,
    Unkept hair, ruffled looks,
    Her dark skin ravished by the rashed up pimples.

    My brother please give me bread,
    The last time food touched those lips, was now a long sad distant memory
    She had somehow programmed her mind to obliterate the thought of hunger,
    In this battle of wills, hunger always prevailed.

    My brother please give ...

  5. Beginning of a fiction novel

    Sooo heres the first paragraph of something Im writing... let me know if it sounds good and I'll keep on writing.


    I watched the world fall apart.

    My program name is Vampira 01; I was the first of my kind to be created. We were human, implanted with electronic chips designed to make the perfect assasin and obedient dog. All of them lost their humanity and had no choice but to obey. I was different. How I am different became the key to human survival...

  6. Wait For Me

    With the onset of the day, we used to meet at the edge of the Basana creek,
    On that rock we sat, swaying to the rhythm of the passing wind,
    Feet dipped in the clear passing waters, this is where all the life promises were made,
    Not to be tempted by what the other side had to offer, we sat and promised that we would wait.

    That night they took me away, to do my bit in this cruel struggle,
    In my mind you were no longer, but my outstretched heart was always ...

  7. Stranger Than Fiction

    I started the day neck deep in nescafe.
    I saw dozens of bags pass away under my eyes.
    I made lemsips exist and reminded myself that my colleague didn't.
    I saw a stationary sausage, roll.
    People lost pounds of weight because of me today.
    according to my memory, I saw a man ascend - through the ceiling and to a land above.
    I've heard plastic sing.
    I'm going to have the music stand in the corner.
    I'm noting my events down on a fruit.

  8. I Refuse To Die..The third and almost final chapter.

    “Well then, I will choose for you.” He concluded. He threw the documents he was holding into the pool; as I watched them soak, I heard the hum of the motor inside the crane and the god awful shriek of steel on the pulley as my head inched closer to the surface of what was to be my last memory; so I thought.

    I could smell the pungent odor of acid as the hairs on my head began to sizzle on contact, flight and fear overwhelmed me to the point of numbness. My old friend Death called upon

  9. terry pratchett competition

    Does anyone have an opinion on the publishing contract offered as the prize in the transworld competition? It is twenty thousand pounds against royalties and they want all rights.
  10. Romance and best friends

    Two things to talk about, bear with me I may ramble or seek pity, blame the season. IT'S ALL CHRISTMAS' FUALT.

    Being that it is very nearly christmas and so many of my friends are inconsiderately pairing off, I have been suffering
    (more than normally) from the envy of those in successful relationships. My history of romantic relations; to fill you in, has never included one of these fabled 'successful partnerships'.

    Now this creates a issue, I like building ...

  11. My First Blogged Thought

    One of the reasons I avoided Facebook for so long was the worry that I'd start recording every pointless thought I could remember, until I only started thinking in pointless thoughts.

    But, I feel I should get involved here. It seems there are other ways to get my 'two cents' (I prefer pennies...) across on this Forum. Whether anything I post will be interesting or as dull-witted and slack-jawed as my forum posts remains to be seen, but I will use this as a word of warning: it may ...

  12. Back to normalcy...

    Life is returning to normalcy once more. With a job secured and a trip back home planned, it looks like I'll be having at least 6 months of life with time on my hands.

    There have been a whole host of things that I've been itching to write, mostly non fiction articles about all sorts of things. Now I finally get to sit down and write them out.

    So yes, life is going back to normalcy for now. But then again, in these past 3 years or so, normalcy hasn't been the norm. ...

  14. To grammar, its supporters and its continued efforts to improve me

    Anyone who has read one of my posts is likely to be aware that at the very least myself and Grammar are seeing other people.

    dreadful as it may sound I have never been one to pay too much attention to grammar. If I find that a piece I'm reading doesn't flow naturally I'm far more likely to try and read it in a different way than try to figure through the grammatical changes that I'm making mentally to help the writing bundle along on its happy way.

  15. The Dark InSpectre, Episode 18

    Episode 18 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero does a little undercover work to find a tel hotspot, only to find himself in yet another sticky situation.

    Here’s an excerpt:
    I frowned. I could badge my way in, but then the whole place beyond that door would clear out in about five minutes. I felt my mood start to sour but tried to stay nice. With an effort, I put a smile on my face. Maybe I had to say the magic word? “Can I please go in? I’m here to see the ...

  16. Not my best description, but I'm stuck on what to call this girl.

    Bea or Kadin?

    She is rather pretty, with dark woodland hair that cascades haphazardly down her back and eyes that are such a dark green that they are almost brown. There is fierceness in her dark eyes and the way she holds herself she dresses delicately with a hint of tom boy. She has a sweet caring personality but will stand up for herself and is not shy. She says exactly what she thinks despite her low status it gets her in trouble but she’s feisty enough to get herself out of ...

  17. I Refuse To Die..next chapter


    They approached me like ravenous beasts with purpose; a scruffy little man in a yellow tee shirt and dirty blue jeans and a burly built woman with a tattoo of a hundred dollar bill on the exposed part of her chest, I think it’s a woman, I can’t be sure. Each carried a crowbar in their right hand, a third person; an unshaven awful looking man was dressed like a banker, in a sharp black suit, clean dress shoes, carrying a matching briefcase. Without as much as a whisper, those two swung their

  19. The Dark InSpectre, Episode 17

    Episode 17 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero gets a blast from the past with a call from an old friend.

    Here's an excerpt:
    Hank lived in an area known as Little Telville where Claire and I’d grown up. We were among the few who got out. “Oh, you know, not much changes around here.” He heaved a sigh. “The water’s still filled with mind-control substances aimed at subverting us tels. I’m pretty sure the Tarver Hardware store over on Alton and 3rd is really a ...

  20. Blech

    Blech, sorry about the recent absence, not that I was probably missed, but I have been busy. Between classes, and training for my promotion at work I have had zero time to do anything. So, this is my unofficial return, though given the coming holidays it is likely that I will not be able to make regular appearances. I will do my best, however.

  21. Liquid Story-bonics

    Some writers love it. Others say it's overkill. Black Obelisk says the key to it is choice.


    I believe all those things are true. Liquid Story Binder XE is, quite simply, the sh*t. There are drawbacks, though. I admit it was a complex little piece of software -- at first. I didn't understand its file system. I didn't even know where it put my books after it claimed to save them. I knew immediately it wasn't like any other program I'd ever used because a) it's gorgeous, b) ...
  22. journals, notebooks and diaries - thingy books

    I have a notebook, it is wonderful as a thing, it is certainly a thing as - to be sure there is absolutely no pattern as to what goes into the thing.

    my problem with journals and diaries is that they involve dates and - well ideas don't often come on schedule.

    should a stranger or even a friend read the contents of my thing I should think I would be sectioned,

    this if nothing else is a good reason for you to start your own thingy book - they are marvelous, ...

  23. I Refuse To Die

    “As I was saying, the hills don’t have eyes and it doesn’t matter if you believe me or not, it is still going to shallow you whole. At the end of the day, you are just food to it. The size and rate of spread, of the cancer in your head is what will determine how long you will be around for. In the mean time, why don’t you have some ice cream with me, it’s the least I can offer you, under the grim circumstance. The sun will be setting soon and the others will be coming for you, so please hurry up ...

  24. The Dark InSpectre, Episode 16

    Episode 16 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero lets his officers know who’s in charge of the investigation, in no uncertain terms.

    Here’s an excerpt:
    “I find out word’s leaked out, you’re off the team, and…” I paused for effect then continued after they started looking nervous. “I let my boss know you fouled up my case.”

    They both blanched. They knew who my boss was, knew what he could do to a tel’s career. It was nice, using Wonderful Walter’s

  25. Ummmm hello?

    isclaimer: In almost every piece of writing I let loose from the brain that needs exercise and probably if undoubtedly will not edit any of it unless I believe it necessary...plus I'm just bad at it. Run on sentences and horribly obvious grammatical errors are your destiny if you wish to proceed. sorry for the drag of a beginning. If you wish to continue thanks!

    Writing is in my opinion a necessity to the souls. A productive and if you decide a private way to unleash all of those ...
