writer’s blessing

“If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one […]

“it’s finally over”

Confession: I did not write a novel this year. NaNoWriMo ended up being a month of plotting and pushing myself to do my usual (ridiculously convoluted) method of planning a story.

Everyone loved the man dearly. He worked hard every single day alongside his servants, doing the same work and more. […]

The Butterfly Circus

The Butterfly Circus – HD from The Butterfly Circus on Vimeo. I was re-watching this short the other day, and it always tends to make me cry. “A perversion of nature. A man, if you could even call him that, whom God himself has turned His back upon.” He hears this over and over everyday. […]

Story #1 A flood was threatening the lives of a city. Everyone began evacuating before the flood was to hit completely. A man sat at his house and thought, “God will save me from this flood.” A car drove by and had an extra seat. “Do you want to get in?” those riding in it asked. […]
