Powering-Up Your Subjects

Strength-training isn't just for the beef-heads at the gym. It's for you, sitting at your desk preparing a business letter, writing the next award-winning novel, or banging out a killer blog post that will ignite the world's consciousness. Strength-training for you doesn't mean training yourself to lift small cars (in case you don't know how to use a jack); strength-training means building the power of your subjects to lift your ideas.

When you use power subjects, you transform…

Breaking Hearts...

Chapter 1 Nightmare

Everything was dark; I saw two spots of light. The first one showed a mini clip and I was sitting in my chair across the table from a very pale man. From what I could see, he had green-yellow eyes and shoulder length black hair. Apparently I was talking to him; I think we were negotiating something. The next spot of light, I was sitting in class next to Zoe and Jocelyn and I was looking at the new transfer student. When it ended, everything went black and there… Continue

Slowly, Alison stepped out the warehouse, a tattered piece of cloth hanging from her left hand. She sat the sunglasses slowly on her soaked head, it was soaked in blood, obviously. It gave off a dark red shine that seemed a bit too sticky to be dye. Sighing, she closed her eyes, becoming invisible to the human eye.

“This stuff just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?” Alison stated, walking towards the small apartment the operation had let her have.

I want you to Know

Was it you calling
Because I swear I heard your voice
I don't know why'd you speak to me though
I'm not of the usual belief
I do love you
I do keep you in my heart

Because I know you're listening
So I want you to know
I'm there and waiting
For YOUR personal word

Take the Time to Write

You may call yourself a writer but when was the last time you sat down and wrote something, besides the grocery list or your name on a check? It's all too easy to come up with excuse after excuse. Are you telling yourself: I'll write when the kids are back in school. I'll write when my job doesn't take up so much time. I'll write when we get the new computer and I don't have to share. Or do you have another excuse?

Different writers have different writing schedules. Some will lock… Continue

A silent step started the noise.

“Lt. Grey, do you copy?” the walkie talkie voice sounded static and hoarse.

A slim hand reached down to the walkie talkie, it’d been three years since the Miller incident, and now they’d finally found someone that could handle Miller alone, “Copy an’ read, ain’t that what they say?” the feminine voice was smooth, but challenging. Gentle, but ruthless.

“Good, now-”

“Sorry, grandpa,” the voice said, “I told you when I… Continue
