    Welcome one and all. This page supercedes the last thread which very sadly stopped updating the "what's new" feed some while ago but it is with gladness in our hearts that we say: The old thread is dead! Long live this new page! And that we may yet merge the 2 but til then, let this be the nexus, brain, and creative scratchpad of your monthly "Literary Maneuvers" Fiction Competition. Write on!

    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
    - Rainer Maria Rilke, "Elegy I"

    Let's hope the new Coffee Shop will bring with it a renewed enthusiasm for the LM competition itself.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    Let's get some more prompts and seconds in, and I'll put the poll up tomorrow evening. For those that don't know, we come up with a prompt for the Literary Manouevers short fiction comp, and second the ones we want to be added into a poll. Then we vote, and write a short piece in the comp on that prompt.

    The poll is up for June's "Literary Manouevres" short fiction competition. And can I just say that I am loving the prompt choices, and am certain that whatever comes out of this will be awesome

    Just vote for one though if you could please. I don't know what I did wrong but it seems to have gone all multi-choice on me...
