    "Inner Demons" 2nd extract by Neal Drummond (language caution. mature theme)

    2nd extract from "Inner Demons". Essex, February 1968. "Pass it 'ere then" Jane sat up, reaching for the pipe. Hair stuck across her face, she realized she had fallen asleep on the floor with her head in a spilt drink. There was no response, bar a sleepy whimper from Rupert, her boyfriend...

    Tomorrow. (Jade's Letter.) (Mature and Graphic.)

    I took my main character in my romance and decided to use her character to write a completly spearate piece. She's got a drug problem in the novel, and this is a letter to someone. I'm not sure who, maybe herself. Ten months. That’s all it took. Ten short months to wipe away any strength I...

    Tinted Windows (Language, drug use)

    Two roommates sit in a BMW parked only a hundred or so feet from their first-floor dorm room. If Liam tilts his head far back enough, he can see right into their window, see the pile of emptied tobacco on his dresser. This car isn’t going anywhere. These guys, they just sit, chat, burn...

    Nostalgia Overdrive (Language)

    NOSTALGIA OVERDRIVE Somebody kill me. Please, just put me out of my misery. Take me out to the back paddock at dusk and plug a sawn off shotgun into the back of my neck. I want the blood to splatter. I want my flesh and pulp to land of the back of your hand. Dying of old age is the worst...

    QUESTION- 1980's, sex, drugs, violence. Would you watch?

    For the past few weeks, I have been in the process of writing a show, or "series." I haven't actually written an episode yet, but I have summarized a few seasons up, and have most of the main characters described. I'm wondering if this idea were to make it big, if anybody would actually watch...

    Ronny's Missing (Colombian Necktie)

    Disclaimer- Some harsh language I could make up some bullshit story about how I’m a big time kingpin who conducts business with drug lords out in Colombia, all the while raking in millions of dollars right under the government’s nose. I could lie and say any minute now, my men will come...

    I miss her. No I don’t. In the eyes of the sinner the white is god. In the pale murky depths of my soul I see good intentions I reach out, grab, scratch as the world flickers past me at a speed only a demon knows. In the eyes of me, she is beauty. I surrender my bones to the grasp of her...
