  1. Personal Libraries

    We are all fellow writers here! we love to put pen to paper and create a symphony of words to create a story. But one thing that has been fascinating me is not the stories we share and intend to publish. the the ones we don't or at least not at this time, the ones that be come part of our personal libraries, never to see the light of day.

    According to my writers journal I have approximately 40 World Stories and about 8 non-world stories, World is in regards to the world where most ...

    #9

    Another meeting.

    I swear, they must try to find the dumpiest, dirtiest places. The rent must be cheap ( if they're paying rent). I can't say where it was, but let's just say that I wouldn't want to be there after a certain hour. The time of the meeting was bad enough. We do these things at night because some people have day jobs- 'covers' they call them- and the rest went along, though She -'E' had argued about it one time.

    I'm not saying ...

  4. The Love Of A Friend


    Chorus:
    The love of a friend
    Is worth more than money
    The love of a friend
    Is sweeter than honey
    Youíll never get it from anyone else
    In your family or in your love
    Because a friend's love is special
    To you from your friend

    When all the others are gone
    All your lovers are in love with others
    Whom have you got?
    Look around, youíve got your friends

    Because [Chorus]

    A friend doesnít need

  5. Enough / Overkill

    Few human habits irritate me more than the tendency for people to spread "Do Something!" disease.
    I'm a minimalist, fatalistic, Darwinistic, cold-blooded SOB. That said, I like a good idea as much as anyone else. As a matter of fact, I LOVE good ideas. I also like Unicorns, guilt-free ice cream and honest politicians.
    Yes, good ideas are that rare. But that doesn't stop mobs of idiots from foisting dumb, ineffective ideas on the public, and pretending that they are ...

  7. (Insert Catchy Blog Title Here)... and some vulgarity follows

    Mega rant: I'm feeling angry, sad, sardonic and fearful.

    Does a fish know it's wet? Does the fish realize it's filtering it's own waste, and all of the other fish's waste through it's gills? Of course not. It's just a fish.
    Does the average person realize the crap that they "swim" through? No. And if they do get a whiff, they just know it's the other fish's effluent, not their own.

  8. Reviewers--Our Lifeblood

    ReviewersóOur Lifeblood.

    After having sent out and received (cold) over 1,370 personalized review requests, I think Iím qualified to depart a little information on the topic of Book Review Requests. Iíll start the salvo off with a personal letter from a reviewer who happened to discuss some problem areas wherein authors were disrespectful and/or intimidating. I have her permission to post this material. Below her letter is my reaction and thoughts.

  11. Treading Water

    (Vent/Rant Warning)

    It's been a while since I've felt this exhausted. I feel like I've been caught in a never ending grind, devoid of hope of a better tomorrow any time soon. While I was in college, I was brimming with passion and desire. I was keen to soak up all the knowledge I could to break into a highly sought after field with a very high paying salary. I could endure the sleepless nights, the perpetual destitution, and the stress of the provincial examinations for my 4th and 3rd ...
  12. Clown Car

    You know that trope that itís impossible to just drive by a car wreck and not look? Sure, itís sick, and morally questionable, but everyone does it. Itís just human nature.

    That can be the only reason that I like watching the Democratic Debates. Itís like the typical smoldering wreck on the side of the road, only itís a Clown Car.

    As they all crawl out of the twisted mess, you wonder where all these clowns came from. Thereís a happy faced clown that likes to spread ...

I am absolutely certain I have got stories rejected on this issue alone.

They should have known that they were posing as Europeans and in the wrong place.

    I was looking up the word cult/occult. It means hidden or secret; like our meetings. I had thought it was about religion, but it doesn't have to be that. Anything secret. Things that are not public, for now.
    Anyway...

    I haven't told anyone, but I've already started. That's what's needed, so I'm doing it. When it's time, I'll show them.

    There's entirely too much talking.
    These others? Talking to the masses is ridiculous. First, they say they agree with us, but then they're not sure. They say things like 'that's too much; too harsh' or 'shouldn't we discuss it?' One even said there should be a vote.

    No! There are some things that don't need to be discussed, they just need action!

    People have this misconception about freedom. It doesn't mean doing or saying anything you want. That's just wrong. You can't go around raping and killing at random, just like you can't yell 'Fire!' in a movie theatre.

    That would just be chaos, like we have now.

    True freedom has to do with equality. Like the French: liberte, egalite. Freedom means everyone gets to be free from the tyranny and oppression, forever. Not some silly, selfish notions of each ...

  25. Glen and Stu Reshape America - The Stand ** SPOILERS

    There's a scene I found disturbing in Stephen King's "The Stand"- especially considering today's context.

    It is when Glen and Stu are sitting together and alone and Stu asks Glen- a former sociologist of the Old World before the plague hit- what is to come and what is to be done about it.

    ** SPOILERS

    What follows is pretty shocking...to me, at least. In the same breadth that Glen talks about the need to recreate the American spirit, he straight-away ...
