Book Sadness

OK I think I've mentioned that I've been waiting for a book for over a year already or close to! Well The book is out and the main supermarkets in my town DO NOT HAVE IT!!!! I cried a little in the inside.!! I seriously wanted to chunk a twilight book at the workers and scream, "Why the hell do you have this crap and not the awesomeness of Kelly Armstrong's The Reckoning!!????!"

.....Yea a little anger issue right there, but I decided… Continue

Hi all I haven't been on for a loooong time!! I apologize lots of stuff kinda came at me. Still trying to adjust my screwed up sleeping system! Damn 24/7 hr places!!! Haha! But I'm gonna try to write more and get back to this site and be more active! But here's a little beginning I did.

There is not much to say, just that I am tired. Of just not my job or of little things in life but the whole damn thing! I am exhausted of waking up and finding nothing exciting about me or of the… Continue

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

A bit about myself...

Since there doesn't seem to be a lengthy place to put up author bios or such (or I'm missing it), a bit about myself:

I live in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada and have been writing mainly for my own amusement (and partially my friends' amusement) since I was about 10. This means I have in and around a decade of writing experience under my to speak.

Most of what I wrote long ago is unusable now but I am gleening some ideas and characters from the…

New Surroundings, New Ideas

Recently my family dragged me back in the U.K. Not that I'm complaining, but I was finally getting used to America. Now that I'm in Glasgow, maybe ideas will start flowing for my new story. I'm still working on the title, because to me, that is the most important part. You know, something that catches the attention.

I've also made a couple of changes to the story I told you about earlier. Firstly, Todd's name was changed to Maksim (the Russian form of Maximilian). Not that there was… Continue

Immigration Reform

I will continue to criticize Arizona's new xenophobic immigration law. Immigration is a complex issue, but it's also a federal responsibility and when you start mentioning states rights it can bring up some rather ugly memories of Jim Crow laws. The borders do need to be secure, but at the same time immigration reform is needed.

Why don't they come legally? This is the question often asked in this state where the "they" are…

Not a good idea, but gonna go with it anyways

Hey everyone. I've been writing since I could hold a pencil, and now that I am old enough to put thoughts together, I'm going to try and share them with you. Firstly I just recently turned sixteen, and secondly, as this title suggests, my first real work of writing isn't much of a good idea, but honestly what is?

This story is, I guess you could say, advance. Its about this girl named Audrey who marries a man named Todd, but they realize that they don't love each other. They have a… Continue

Writing Styles for a comedy novel

As I pass the mid-point of my comedy novel about retail I am working on a style very new to me. One, I have never written comedy before, but the ideas are flowing and my critic(s) tells me it sounds good. However, I am writing in a style that is almost narrative.


I woke up the next morning with an aching headache and immediately wished I hadn't gone out partying the night before. I couldn't think straight let alone stand up on my own two feet. As I…

More Crossed Wires

Hey All!

The plot thickens. Here is the latest in Crossed Wires.

My Best,


Carl and Sandy Meet Their Mystery Man

Sandy drove them from Roanoke at a high rate of speed, hitting the I-81. Carl was wishing that he could have been behind the wheel, because he wanted to go faster. His brain itched, his back itched and just about everything else itched too. He was having a very itchy kind of day.

About an hour and a half out, Sandy…
