THE BIBLE FACT OR FICTION- SAYS WHO?

First and most of all, the Bible is the greatest book ever written.

Opening paragraphs to my work-in-progress, which is currently untitled

I have no title to this story quite yet, as I'm writing without much of an outline. As I write more I'll likely develop stronger characters and plot, which should result in a decent title. Until then, I'm posting these opening paragraphs to the story which I'm hoping will gain some constructive criticism. Thank you!

Murdered.

It was one word that claimed a hundred different possibilities --- who, when, where, why? --- and yet, it seemed overlooked to Rachel. As she…

The Kunc, Kunz, Kuntz Family Reunion

The Kunz Family Reunion

July 16-18, 2010

By Andrew Kunz



Back in February, while celebrating my 20th birthday at my Dad’s house, I

heard from my Grandmother that the Kunz family was holding another of

their prestigious family reunions. Immediately interested, I queried the

date, location, and any other information I deemed necessary. My

Girlfriend, who was sitting next to me at the time, was greatly

interested in the event as well. We’d… Continue

when daddy comes

would not words turn to pictures when he comes
then slaves will be depicted in their thrones
with every second that passes
posey smiles stirred up like a wind filled with ashes
though my heart yearns this coming
it still pounds a dull "thumb" when it hears he's coming

laughter or sorrow made judgment of your past
it will hurt when daddy comes

Pre-print Nonplussed

As the first of the three books of my Free Clinic trilogy goes to print, I find myself going crazy. Not "postal" crazy, but the the general feeling is such that one wants to pull one's hair out and scream at the sky.

Also, it seems like the convoluted cascade of events in the "real" world conspire to confuse and confound me. (How's that for "illiteration"! Oh my, I forgot to spell correctly!) I moved residence over the last week and that is…

More Than Grammar

We often respond to questions on Yahoo! Answers. The article below is adapted from one of those responses.



Question: Can Someone Check My Grammar?

“There are several factors account for cultural diversity in Europe such as geographical, historical, and religion that prevent the growth of any single homogenous style in the region. The geographical distribution has formed boundaries within the different ethnic groups. Separated by their identity…

Why is it so hard?

I've had my latest story on hold for nearly a month now, and the question running through my head is: Why is it so hard to write something?

I guess one reason would be because you have to keep the readers interests somewhere in mind, even if its in the very back where you only look at it once in a while. Sure you wanna write about what you want though, but think about it. There's probably at least fifteen out of 100 writers who added something they didn't want to simply because it would… Continue

Going Editorial!

Podunk, VA

Madmarco, reporting.



As the dust cleared, it was obvious to me as an imbedded journalist on the scene that something had gone horribly wrong. Two local policemen had tasered an obviously distraught female who was simply trying to get to the sight of her friend's car accident.

This reporter noted that the police on scene were extrememly agitated and had in fact unholstered their service weapons. From my vantage point, I noticed that all pertinent evidence had been… Continue

Is it too late?

Okay, so let me start with an example: A Christmas Carol. Does that book capture the setting and lifestyle simply because it was based in the time it was written? If Charles Dickens had lived in the twenty-first century, and had written the famous book, would it have been as successful? I mean, if you think about it, some of the best books based in the Victorian era were written during that time. The same goes for other famous literary works. But if you… Continue

Restoring the Power of Clichés

How a cliché becomes a cliché

When a particular cliché was first used (before it became a cliché), it created an impact. It used words in an interesting and novel way. The person who heard or read the expression might have thought, “Gosh, that’s a really creative way to express that idea.” Then, when other people began to use that expression, they were not clever; they were copycats. Having no interesting ideas of their own, they used someone else’s idea. When many people do…

One thing every writer hates...

...Writer's block. I'm sure if there was a cure I'd stock up on it, 'coz I'm terrible at not being sure what to put next. Then again, if nobody every had writer's block, books would be published left and right. Right? I guess one of the best things to do is to put my current work on hold and work on my fanfiction (oh, how I love fanfiction). Or, simply write a short story. Nothing long and dramatic, just something to get the thoughts flowing again.

Seriously, though, am I the only one who… Continue
