Totally not dead! (By most standards*) · 2:18am Jul 21st, 2014

So, the thing is, I've had a pretty rough year. I'm talking the kind of year that leaves you with literally no free time at all, and you end up completely forgetting about everything else. But hey! I feel like I came out on top after all that, and I'm in a situation where I'm able to devote my time to one thing or the other. The thing is, I'm not entirely sure what I should do, or more importantly, what I should prioritize. I've been gone for so long, that I'm pretty sure that most of the

I don't know what I'm doing. · 1:17am Jun 14th, 2013

Really, I don't. It's strange, once I stop and think about it, how much both I, and this site, have changed since I first joined forever ago. (Not actually forever ago) I remember when I first joined, and my English skills were so mediocre that I wasn't quite sure how anybody could find joy in anything I wrote. Yet many of you did, and I thank you all for that. Some of you, somehow found some kind of momentary entertainment in something I created, which was, you know... kind of nice, I guess.

The Greatest Excerpt Ever · 11:32pm Oct 3rd, 2012

I looked through the Gideon bible in my motel room for tales of great destruction.The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zo-Ar, I read. Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of Heaven; and He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
So it goes.

So · 12:09am Aug 31st, 2012

It's been like...what, almost a month now? Where the fuck have I been, you ask?

Iceland.

You heard me, your brave, heroic writer pal has been braving the volcanoes of iceland.

Okay, that's a complete lie. I've been doing stuff. Fun stuff.

Writing Tip! · 10:29pm Aug 1st, 2012

Alright, it's me again guys. Back for another round of useless rambling where I try to imprint certain ideals that I hold true in writing into your little brains! Not that I'm this amazing writer who you should be blessed to get writing tips from or anything like that, but because I feel I do have a little bit of knowledge that might help you become a better writer. Since I'm nice I'll actually be covering two topics today. First thing up is something I've been asked to do a couple of times.

Finished! · 8:18pm Jul 31st, 2012

Phew! Well, I only wrote 4000 words for the story Pieces of a Dream's introduction, but I split it into two chapters. You'll see why (soon) once it passes submission. Also, I decided to start another story that was heavily inspired by my good friend Deceased's bloody amazing story "Changeling"

If you haven't read Changeling drop what you're doing and go read it.

I'm thoroughly convinced some outside force hates me · 11:46pm Jul 25th, 2012

Remember that progress I told you about?

Since life seems content to conspire against me, the document I was working was deleted. How?

I dunno!

I was just sitting there, typing away. Smash smash smash on the keyboard as I usually do, and then - BLAMO!

Yes, I say blamo. Shut your face hole, you blubber.

Yes, I say blubber.

Shut up! T~T

Anyway! I was typing away and then my internet was like: "Oh no, I'm crashing! *Dies*"

A little reference time · 3:24am Jul 23rd, 2012

Well, I'm sure as many of you have noticed, Pieces of a Dream has temporarily been unsubmitted. Why? I hated my prologue. So, I wrote a new one (About the same length) and I started chapter one. To make up for my... failure, I'm going to reward you by bringing it up with the new prologue and a new chapter. So far I'm like... 4k words into the new chapter. Though, it might take me a bit as I've been distracted with work and reading and stuff like that.
