  1. this is what happens when you let me feel romantic - I become a COMPLETE drip

    Love cannot be found at the centre of your heart. A beating pulsing organ of blood for guts and organs. Which has a function and a timer, a best before and use by date. Love cannot be found in the depths of your eyes, as eyes no matter how deep a window to the soul can see too clearly to be loves guide.
    As love is blind.
    ironically some say love is heartless, with its unrelenting pace, general lack of taste and failure to see that certain things can never be.
    Perhaps then love ...

  2. Three. Two. Gone.

    Your death clock’s counting,
    Five. Four. Three.
    Simple minds fill mine with glee.

    Down the alley and through the day,
    Here comes sacrifice,
    With a baby named prey.

    Take my hand I’ll guide you well,
    Through the light that blinds,
    To the pits of hell.

    Remember my name,
    And take great heed,
    As I remind you of your once great deed.

    As ominous as a black feathered swan.
    Your death ...

  3. The Dark InSpectre, Episode 13

    Episode 13 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero realizes even the most fearless of inspecters is rendered gutless when it comes to one thing: women.

    Here's an excerpt:
    My hand jerked on the wheel and I almost swerved off the road. I took my foot off the gas and got the car under control, along with my breathing, which had suddenly stopped. The conjecture had been completely logical, but the implications were staggering.

    “Slow down Jack,” I muttered ...

  4. Back to work

    I'm back cooking . . . I don't know how sad I am about it. What I do know is between work, toddler, hubby, house and mental yet loveable family, my writing has once again dropped to the bottom of the must-do list. Sometimes I feel like I'm never going to make something of myself. I feel like I'm going to be cooking meals for other people that I can't afford to eat myself for the rest of my life Just having a low moment. Blah.

  5. Puppy School Dropout

    Four-month-old Jed is learning the leash very well, sleeps through the night, is awesome in the house (super clean) and knows “sit” “wait” “down” “off” “touch” “drop it” and “no” among others. So we failed Puppy School. Well actually, I dropped Jed out myself because, quite frankly, I’m opposed to the way the woman who was running it (the lady who shall remain nameless… let’s call her Ms. D), ran it.

    It started outside with Ms. D directing us to have our puppies relieve themselves ...

  6. This is Ox's idea...

    by , September 25th, 2010 at 04:18 PM (Digging in the Dirt)
    Actually The Backward Ox suggested I do this in the Writing Discussion board, but I've never done anything like this in public before so I would be more than a little embarrassed. Plus it's against the rules.

    Ox's suggestion was that I post excerpts from my most recent fiction piece, Ralph, along with the same excerpts as revised following suggestions made on the Fiction board. The idea is to find out which version people like the best, so please comment.

    The first ...

  7. Shot down

    It's hard being shot down.
    I have confidence in my skills. I've gone through intense training. My teachers have confidence in my skills.

    Maybe I just suck at auditions.

    I gave New York a shot, but the school there turned me down.

    Feeling mixed emotions. On the one hand, my confidence suffered a heavy hammer blow or a shotgun blast. On the other hand, I think I just screwed the auditions and well... f*** them.

    Maybe I'm not as ...

  8. Prologue.

    She stood as paralyzed as he, frozen within his body with no idea of how to proceed. This was it, they had failed. There had been no instructions for what they should do if they were to fail. It had been inconceivable. Now the end of the world was upon them and all she could do was hope.

  11. Character: Guy James Little.

    Guy is the kind of guy who has a soft look about him. As if he will break if you say the wrong thing. He has those watery brown eyes that people find it hard to say no too. He even appears delicate, with his pale skin and gold blonde hair. He is tough when he has to be though. There is a hardness about him that keeps people out. It may seem like you are getting below the surface and that you know him really well but if you were really close to him you’d realise that you don’t. He is rather skilled ...

  14. No electricity.

    There didn't seem to be any reason that the computer should be off. I had left it on every day for nearly the past seven years.I never wanted to be with out it. It was my best friend, wife, confidant and strongest adversary all rolled into one. "Damn" I whispered, " this sucks." Tap, tap. Nothing.

  15. Works in the works

    It's been seven years since my first attempt at writing a novel, not counting my NaNoWriMo works.

    I've written shorter pieces in that time but nothing longer. But ideas are ever brewing and I need the time to bring them to completion.

    Works in the works -

    1. Worldly Conversations. (Fiction/Religious)

    There's a thread of it somewhere in the workshop. There'll be a lot more of it once I have the time to put it up. It's a piece that's going ...

  16. The Dark InSpectre, Episode 12

    Episode 12 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero discovers that some things can scare even the dead.

    Here's an excerpt:
    Question after question bobbed to the surface of my seething brain: What could scare a dead person? Who else was inside this guy? How did they get there? Why did Heske surface now?

    The big one: was Heske going to kill again?

    No answers magically came to me. I was swimming in uncharted waters, with only instinct ...

  17. Fairy Tale Moments.

    I want to go back to those fairy tale moments,
    Where we’d walk together through time,
    How life stood still when I was in your arms,
    Or you were sleeping in mine.

    I miss that time when you were close,
    When no star was too high,
    When I thought that I’d finally found someone,
    To lean on for a while.

    I want to go back to those fairy tale moments,
    The ones I bragged about to my friends,
    Where all I had to do was close ...

  19. Anyone else?

    I got Cassandra Clares new book today =D been waiting for it for like 3 months since I pre ordered it. This women is actually my writing role model, I would love to be able to create a character as 3D as the ones she presents. I think I have come close with one or two, but I can't fit them into a story...

    ANYWAY I have her new book and it's so pretty and amazing and I can't wait to start reading it. When I do I'm pretty sure I'll never put it down. And usually I love lending books ...

  20. Today

    Today is a historical day. Today is the day that I go through my mountain of books and decide which ones I should put in the loft.
    It is a sad day for me.
    My room isn't big enough to hold all the books I have so I'm having to put some in the loft until I either get a bigger room or move out.
    I hate doing this because I pride myself on the books I have and no doubt I'll put on in the loft and be like =/ I want to read that now!

  21. The Dark InSpectre, Episode 11

    Episode 11 of The Dark InSpectre is now online, in which our hero meets a grim ghost from the past who whacks an old friend from the present.

    Here's an excerpt:
    Bonardi’s expression went from pain and confusion to stark terror. “No…you’re…I mean, he’s…dead. That was years ago. I saw the body. There’s no way.” He shook his head back and forth, eyes wild.
    Multiple Man lapped up his fear, savoring it. “Apparently, some deaths are more permanent than others.”

  23. Just had a blast writing my short story!

    Wow! I don't think I've written a short story since high school. I did one randomly for fun last year, but it only took about an hour and it was just to kill some time. But this one... I don't think I've even had this much fun reading a story! It was an awesome experience. Most of my writing is non fiction. I've made a few attempts, but I was never too committed to those previous ideas. I was inspired by two events:
