A New Turn

Define: Inefficient If we ask Google, we learn that inefficient means not achieving maximum productivity and/or wasting or failing to make the best use of time or resources. For those of you who do these daily prompts, the words we are given can spark an idea, can make us stop and think, or bring about an…

Shades of Grey

Broken is the world we live in. Once we accept this fact, many things in life will become all the clearer. Day by day, we all go through our lives on autopilot. We wake up, we either take a shower or eat, go to work or school, come home, and repeat the cycle all over…

Silent Plea

Over the course of a dozen or so decades, man has done many a stupid things. This day was no different when, suddenly, against all odds, the floor caved in and they all plummeted into the darkness. A dozen screams tore through the darkness, a shrill sound that was swallowed by howling wind and roaring…

Love and Obsession IV

He wasn’t an artist, by any means. Eros knew that all too well. He still liked to draw, though. Simple things, mostly. His medium was photography or paint. The way a camera or paintbrush felt in his hand, the way colors blurred and smeared together or came together in a perfect shot, the way a studio smelled….

Conversation Starters: Ploughing a Troll

Here is yet another post that has something to do with music. Actually, this post centers around a song and how it would be an interesting conversation starter due to the fact the song itself is one innuendo after another – of the dirty sort. When I first stumbled across this song, I couldn’t quite…

In The Face Of Danger, Be Aware

Some words can spark an idea for a story or a deep, self-reflection. That’s just part of being a writer, really. However, some words can also make us think back on favorite characters, books, shows, or sayings we haven’t thought about in a while. Today is such a day, for me. Today I remember Mad-Eye…

Resolute

Many A Thing I Will Not Compromise Terror Building, Fear Rising Hope Destructionized Move On, Don’t Look Back I Will Not Be Criminalized Or Victimized Never Will I Allow Myself To Be Compromised

Hard Floors, Life’s Walls

Life is one giant compromise and it is one we all must work with. For me, sitting on the floor of a hospital due to the fact I’m charging my phone, the compromise is giving up comfort in exchange for accessibility. It was an easy choice. My mum is in surgery, getting a port put…

Annihilation

There were no warnings, no premonitions or underlying unrest. The day they came was an affair of love and innocence, of laughter and guileless dreamers. It was sunshine and rain, warm winds and citrus-laden fragrances. Orange trees towered, verdant leaves rustling in a gentle breeze. Allyn recalled that day clearly, remembered her mother’s warm smile…

Lov’engence: A Review of Daria Cohen’s ‘The Duke and Missy.”

Hello everyone and welcome back to my side of the internet. Today is a day, one that is so very special, one that so many people are excited about. Today is the world-renowned Valentine’s Day! I was quite curious about how I would do today’s post, given I haven’t put anything up in a few days (and…

Black Matter

“Who is Mana?” The look Vykor tossed her way was hard, closed off. It was a look she knew well, one she had grown accustomed to after months of desperate survival against a machine that thought like a man. It was a look that had her quick to remember how he tried to kill her…

Getting Into Gear

  Time changes, life goes on. One of the things about growing up is the lessons we learn as we age. Wisdom comes in gentle whispers, knowledge that is applied in our lives from vast resources of experience that is both personal and observed. Knowledge is a good thing, but it is useless if we…
