Writers’ Dash Competition: First Prize
Published on Monday, February 22, 2010 by The Taxidermist by Valerian Shinn It was the savoir-faire of the taxidermist in the face of small pox that caught his attention. When word arrived of the resurgence of the pestilence, staff gathered in corners muttering as icy fear encircled each contracting heart. Some disappeared, hurrying home to family or racing to the ports for a ship bound anywhere away. B...
Writers’ Dash: Second Prize
Published on Friday, February 19, 2010 by Unnamed Short Story by Almo Schumann The afternoon August sun created eddies of heat that swirled on the sidewalk. From his second-floor vantage point, leaning through the open window to try to find a hint of a fresh breeze, Nick watched the hairdos wilt and the dark evidence of sweat spread on the dress shirts below. "Birmingham," Nick muttered as he turned ...
Writers’ Dash: Third Prize
Published on Thursday, February 18, 2010 by From the Verandah by Thirza Ember From Days Gone by -  by 'Mary' The shrinking violet dawn had shriveled to grey along Grant Street by the time Jenny Addison came outside with her third cup of coffee. It was a big verandah, and would seem even bigger when she had cleared up the last of the boxes, and thrown away the rest of the junk abandoned by the previous o...
So you think you can write a novel?
Published on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 by So do you think you can write a novel? That is the very question I ask myself as I sit by the fire surrounded by fellow writers at Cookie. My real life family certainly believes that I have a story within me that is eager to get out and be unleashed on the page. In fact they have said it many times, but I haven’t let myself believe them tending to think my English s...
JAEN’S WORLD: “Got Block???”
Published on Friday, January 15, 2010 by Is “Writer’s Block” a terrifying moment, or a hateful disease that doesn’t discriminate between new and seasoned writers? Whatever it is, when it happens, the best thing to do is to figure how to overcome it, quickly. When I am writing about a subject often it helps to put myself in the subject's environment; hence, go where your book takes you; often, t...
Flawnt’s Virtual Views: manifesting
Published on Thursday, January 14, 2010 by The miracle in question was only performed to hasten the operation, under circumstances of present necessity, which required it. -Ben Franklin Finished that belated, beloved, beleaguering NaNoWriMo contest at 50,267 words. What can I say: thanks to the divine. Amen to my mom and dad. Blessings to the organisers. Yiiipppeeehs and Yaya-cries to the other writers and ...
Flawnt’s Virtual Views: Digesting
Published on Thursday, January 14, 2010 by “That Quantity that is sufficient, the Stomach can perfectly concoct and digest, and it sufficeth the due Nourishment of the Body.” - Ben Franklin Quantity. Oh my, my first week of NaNoWriMo comes to a creaking close. I open my browser in the morning to check last night’s word count: I haven’t been dreaming it - it stands solidly at 16,595 words. When ...
Flawnt’s Virtual Views: Identity
Published on Thursday, January 14, 2010 by "Eat to please thyself, but dress to please others." Benjamin Franklin Folxs, I'm going to get deep on you today. Why? 'Cause I feel like it. 'Cause I've been ill lately and illness deepens the man: in his pajamas, he circles the world lightning-fast, setting fire to unbuilt houses, tearing down edifices held high in everybody's mind. My topic today: identity. a...
Flawnt’s Virtual Views: Novel
Published on Thursday, January 14, 2010 by “Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade.” (Benjamin Franklin) I must admit that I’m a little lost in thought today, lost in translation between the world I know and I’m used to, the world of flash fiction, and another world that I would like to enter, but I don’t know if I can get my fat head through the door: the ...
Flawnt’s Virtual Views: Voices
Published on Thursday, January 14, 2010 by "Every accent, every emphasis, every modulation of voice, was so perfectly well turned and well placed, that, without being interested in the subject, one could not help being pleased with the discourse; a pleasure of much the same kind with that received from an excellent piece of music." Benjamin Franklin Really, I meant to write more about the colourf...
Flawnt’s Virtual Views: A Writer’s Home
Published on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 by Harriet Gausman whose real name I don't know, unless that is her real name and there is no other Harriet Gausman in the known universe, asked me to write a column, a regular column, a piece of blog, a wooden log, for this esteemed online journal. Now, as those of you who know me, know, I am never short of words, only inches. In the last (and first) Milk Wood newsle...
