PROLOUGE



A slight, muffled laugh escaped from his parted lips. The black, long sleeved jacket he wore much too big on him. A grasp on life, he said, a slight preoccupancy that would only last but a millisecond. He held the knife to his cell partner’s throat, smiling, wolf-like fangs glistening, somehow, in the darkest of corners.

“Scream,” the boy ordered.

The man gulped, not being able to emit any type of noise.

“I said scream,” he yelled, pushing the cellmate against… Continue

inspiration

something stirs from inside out-first a flutter, then a shout

it begs for life from outside in-then takes to paper from my pen

i don't know how, i can't say why-all i know is i'm it's scribe!

An unfinished story Updated!!

From what I hear no one was allowed to go back. The city was destroyed and They are still there. The army guards the city from the outside making sure nothing goes in or out. In just a matter of hours They destroyed the city our lives our families and our faith in the Vatican and God. Two women out of no where flew down from the sky and landed in the middle of the city smiling like nothing they did was not out of the ordinary. And with just a movement of one of their lips a three mile diameter… Continue

Memories of a Forgotten Time Part 2

“I never met my biological father,” Madison started, her eyes still closed, “but my Mom started seeing this John guy and he eventually moved in with us. He never married my Mom, so technically he isn’t my Dad, but the two of them were so madly in love with one another that I got in trouble when I called him by his name and not Dad…” she trailed off, inhaling and exhaling slowly. “After about a year and a half, they were fighting constantly, but neither of them tried to get the other out of the… Continue

untitled(screams?)

An empty scream echos
and I don't realize that its mine
I fly back with shock
not knowing where this sudden pain came from
I hear myself scream
but I'm too weary from the day
to search myself
I'm still echoing
the curdling yowls
I can't find myself
I don't even know if this makes sense
My head is in dis ray
Arts help me out

diversity

tis sameness makes some comfortable--the difference be appalling / i wonder how they gave themselves--to such a dismal calling / to share and blend and understand--need not pollute the soul / for difference makes us wonderful--for me, it is my goal!

Punctuating Appositives

Punctuation isn’t complicated once you know what you’re looking at. I see many writers making errors when punctuating appositives. This may be a new term for many folks, so we’ll take a look at what I mean by “appositive,” and then we’ll figure out how to punctuate them correctly.



WHAT’S AN APPOSITIVE?



An appositive is a word or phrase that

1. renames something you have written and

2. can serve the same grammatical function as the word or phrase it… Continue

and no one is paying attention to one another

my patience is wearing thin

I want to start launching my fists

but its not the right thing to do

so I smile and threaten

I'm gonna tell mommy!

Go ahead and tell her Ill tell her what a bad kid you've been acting like

Heads drop and tears fall

I dont care

they have to learn

they shouldn't become too comfortable with… Continue

Fly with me

Fly with me
we can see it all
there is nothing that can stop us
this world and the next is ours
all we got to do
is reach out and grab it
so give me your hand
and we'll start our journey
no need to close your eyes at the jump
there's nothing to fear
when you are with me
Let's go

Life After Suicide

Imagine life after suicide,
Living on the other side,
Where hell and heaven collide,
Where will my soul reside,
Where do they all abide,
They talk about a paradise,
They say that it's very nice,
Whenever they fantasize,
Jesus makes my soul to rise,
But if I back slide,
And commit the suicide,
I wont meet the heavens bride,
Is there life after suicide?

Writing for a Strong Middle

Your book or story has a powerful beginning. It engages the reader. It makes him want to read more. The main character has a big problem, and the reader wants to know how it will be solved. Pretty soon, though, the reader is yawning. She puts the book down and goes to do something more “interesting.” What happened?



You started strong, but your middle is weak.

Based on my experiences as an editor and as a book junkie, two problems create most weak middles: 1) Nothing is…

Memories of a Forgotten Time.

The voices outside faded beneath the rhythm of the falling rain and the spontaneous claps of thunder that followed the bright flashes of lightning. Madison’s eyes grew heavier and heavier as she listened to the storm until she could no longer perceive what was real and what wasn’t. Noises she wasn’t originally aware of could be heard in the distance, noises she’d never heard before. They sent chills down her spine as she listened to them echo through the forest around her. Images began to… Continue

It returned.

Well after what felt like a very long time, whatever it was that was stopping me from writing, has taken a hike and hopefully it won't return for a while, but I owe it all to my favourite T.V Show: Fringe as well as what I hope to become my 2nd favourite T.V Show: V.

I just finished watching the newest episode of Fringe on Fox after waiting, somewhere between 1 and 2 weeks, and I finally got those juices… Continue
