I write mostly short stories, as well as a bit of poetry and every piece I write has special meaning to me. Working on getting a supernatural series out soon... fingers crossed that it'll be well received.

Topic: Do You Ever Suffer From 'Story Fatigue'?
Posted: 10 Mar 2016 03:41

I get that all the time. I have two major unfinished series that I've been trying to finish for years now. I have no idea how to fix it, but I would suggest you take a break from it and work on something short and fun, then get back to it again. Let me know if it works, I seriously need to finish mine as well. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/evil6.gif" alt="evil4">

Topic: Cool beans...I now have a poem in Vietnamese...
Posted: 09 Mar 2016 04:45

Cool beans...somebody translated one of my poems into Vietnamese, and they didn't just use Google Translate either, I just figured out...so it is an actual translation...anyone here speak Vietnamese by any chance? Just curious how they did, though they did take the time to translate it, so it can't be all bad...

Paris Will Never Be The Same

And yes, I realize it was posted three years ago, and the first I've seen it was tonight...and yes, I will never understand Google searches either...<img src="/forum/images/emoticons/dontknow.gif" alt="dontknow">

That really is cool... and sorry, can't help you with Vietnamese, but feel free to ask me if anyone translates any of your work into Afrikaans, Korean or Japanese. :)

Topic: Question about when the next writing competition
Posted: 09 Mar 2016 03:21

I would like to see a competition along the lines of having to incorporate certain random words and phrases into the narrative. Now that's a challenge!

We've actually had competitions in the past that had prompts - 'New Beginnings', 'A Picture Worth a Thousand Words' and 'Stories Space Drabble'. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/icon_smile.gif" alt="icon_smile">

Topic: The "Guess the Point of the Game" Game
Posted: 05 Jan 2016 03:43

Here's a little tip for those of us who don't know how to play nice... If you don't like the thread, don't post in it. If it breaks site rules, report it to Admin. If it's a childish game, let the children play it - no one is forcing you to play along with them. The forums should be a fun social hang-out where people can get to know each other better, please keep it that way.

Black Chronicles Character Interview Continued

“Come step into my parlour,”  He says with charmed guile.  “Dude, I’ve been waiting in the Jeep for you, we’re going to be late,” Hyuk says from the doorway. “But I really want to hear the rest of the story,” Jong says. “Can’t we go later?” Hyuk stands in the doorway, his tall frame practically filling it, tapping his foot impatiently. He’s changed out of his...

Black Chronicles Character Interview

“Come step into my parlour,”  He says with charmed guile.  I shift my weight, the slats of the wooden bench a stark testament to how long I’ve been sitting out here. Am I even in the right place? I check the message on my phone one more time, even though the chances of it reading any different to the other thirty-something times I’d read it were slim to none... ‘Entrance to...

The Darkest Night - Part Five

This is what they meant when they said ‘dark as pitch’. Clarissa shuffled along, one hand on the clammy wall to guide her, the other held out to keep her from bumping into something or – much as she hated to consider it – someone. She felt confident that if she kept along the wall, she would soon encounter a door. Surely every room had to have a door, albeit that she’d come to the...

The Darkest Night - Part Four

The package arrived at his home on a Monday morning, 10:42 am to be exact. George remembered this because that was the day his assistant, Clarissa, was late to arrive. She had called to apologise, there had been a smash-up on the freeway and while the four vehicle pile-up had not been her fault, he would have docked her pay if she had been remiss in informing him. In fact, he found himself...

Going Nowhere Slowly

Stanley fell to the ground as the sound of gunfire rang out louder than he had ever heard before. He crawled on arms and knees until he was clear of his bedroom window, just as his mother had taught them to do at times like those – and there were many in their neighbourhood. “Joey! Stanley!” His mother shouted from the other room. “I’m okay, Mamma. I’m safe,” Stanley shouted down the hall as...

The Darkest Night - Part Three

Mary turned to look back one last time at the only home she had ever known. Leaving had been the hardest thing ever – yet she had no doubt that harder things still lay ahead. She had packed hurriedly, wanting to be gone before the townsfolk showed up with their kindness. She took care while packing, not wanting to take anything that would be missed. Her plan would only work if the town...

The Darkest Night - Part Two

The woodsman had many talents, but caring for newly-born baby girls was not among them, so he did the only thing he could think of – he took the child to the village church. The pastor’s wife was in the garden picking tomatoes for their breakfast when he rushed from the woods holding the screaming bundle. “Oh Lord! What is this, Tom?” She rushed from the tomato beds and took the child from...

The Darkest Night - Part One

Once upon a time, in a long forgotten land, there lived a young woman whose name struck fear into even the bravest of hearts. She lived in a tiny cottage at the edge of a deep forest, near an old dried up creek. Her name was Arwyn. Please indulge me as I turn back the clock to the night Arwyn was born – it was the night of the full moon, late in October. You see, that was the night a...

When Life Hands You Lemons...

I’ve once again been given a task by a friend in the hopes that random writing will somehow lift the huge block that’s been weighing down my work of late. In all honesty, I think that he’s only giving me these little tasks so he can get me to shut up about how much I miss my laptop - it crashed about a week ago. The task is for me to write a musing about anything. Now while I’m really good...
