A Day in the Park

Jimmy strutted down the park, humming some tune or another which played on the radio that morning. He was clean cut, fresh from the barber, with some product in his onyx hair to make it shine and bounce, while staying in place. He wore…

My next novel and gearing up for NaNo

Editing was going well until I was introduced to Diablo III. The game where you can die and still laugh about it. Even on hardcore mode. Died three times last night. Game is a lot of fun, and I’ve gotten a few ideas off it….

Club Poseidon

This week’s challenge! Write a modern day story using a god from one of the pantheons. I chose Poseidon. The writing group can be found here, and this week we are having a prize. This week you could win Unclaimed by Laurie Wetzel. You can…

Fix Me

Why don’t you fix me?I can’t help myself.Why don’t you fix me?You know I’m fading still. –Fix Me, Icon For Hire Gears ground together, poorly lubricated and having accumulated much dirt in the grimy underbelly of Torzikov. The once beautiful brass finish of his…

Josha’s Last Night of Freedom

Based on a FB group I started to get people writing. There are weekly exercises, and this was the first one. The goal was to write about a support character without ever bringing a protagonist into the story. This helps flesh out a support…

Eevee’s Defiance

“Know what you want to become, Trick?” I scratched my eevee behind the ear and he purred and moved into my chest. He was small, just big enough to cover my upper torso. He ignored my question, as he often did. We were nearing…

Not Quite Right

“You’re spleen’s out again,” Darlene scolded. Bob sighed and pushed it back in, past the loosely knit flesh, where he was bitten long ago. “Darlene, you’re always busting my balls about this crap. Ed’s got a testicle dangling halfway down his thigh and Marlene doesn’t…

Elixir of Wisdom Part 2

Here is the finale! If you want to read the first part, just skip down a story to avoid spoilers. Again, unedited. Sorry guys. The Advisor coughed and read diligently, taking in every ingredient. Moments passed, and nothing was said, but the Advisor mumbled…

The Elixir of Wisdom Pt 1

I’m a horrible tease. When writing my 30 minute race the other day this is what I came up with. Finished it on a second 30 minute race, but the fear of death was real when this is what I ended the story with….

The song of Sven the Goat Defiler

This was my 30 minute word race. It’s special. Takes place in the world for my second book. Enjoy? Kind of. I was told there was a lot of laughing. I also didn’t edit, sorry. Too tired. I accept my imperfections. This is the…

A Shadow’s Plan

Writing prompt: write a 200-500 word synopsis of your story through the POV of your antagonist. Tricky in any good fantasy novel, because you can’t have just one. [Shadow] looked at the plans for G’desh, the great desert which overused the name of their false…

Remembering a Foreign Time

Written on a cramped airplane where I couldn’t see what I wrote. Done in about 20 minutes. I thought it was a pretty awesome deal. Including pictures of Guatemala in this, though the actual Guatemala post will come later. The old man of the…

Anglorum

"Before the sea she stood, still as a statue but for the wind rippling in her loose lavender-grey dress and toying with her black hair - it billowed in the salty breath of the ocean like a flag of defiance."
