Just get to the end – (a C.W. post)

If you’ve never read Chucky’s stuff, he’s got a real way with words. He’s got a way with words the way Charmin has a way with toilet paper, or Lucky Charms has a way with rainbows, or MacGyver has a way with turning a shitty Chevy into a moderately useable vehicle. I’ve been reading Chucky’s stuff for the past few years and I must admit that he’s a fantastic source of writerly inspiration (see below). This right here, is the usual stuff you can expect to find from this mastermind of writerly inspiration. He reminds us here that all writing…

Robot Dance

Don’t know who the kid is; didn’t spend that much time looking at it. Someone labeled this “Best Robot Dance Ever,” and I thought ‘why not?’ Damn.

Regardless

by L.P. Stribling Start over, you need to start over. Not entirely, but with your thoughts, With where you think you need to be. Start over. ’T’s cold outside. Empty. Don’t see many people walking around. You’re not them. Focus on you. You’re ready to meet your own people, Remember, we’re starting over. I’m a writer. Regardless. Regardless of what words are, Written on my lanyard, of what it says on my driver’s license, my résumé, or what comes of the mouths of my loved ones Pertaining to the question of “what it is I do.” I’m a writer. And…

So …. the dragon

J and I are reading a series. You may have heard of it. I’ve dropped this info in the site. We’re reading Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time. It’s fantastic. I remember reading it around 15 years ago and only got up through book 5. Put it down because..well, life I guess, youthful judgments which may or may not have been valid. Who knows. Times change, as do attitudes, perceptions, and overall views on the minutiae of it all. If you haven’t been up on the details, we’ve begun the series anew. I think J has gotten up to around…

Decisions

      by L.P. Stribling   Her face was no longer something she could feel; the wind, the ice had made sure of that. Carla still pushed through the biting slices of nature’s army toward the wooden structure on the hilltop, one high step at a time. The snow reached well past her knees, and beyond that with the ground dipped. On the inside, her legs began to ache. Almost there, Carla. Push through. She tried putting her mind elsewhere again. That seemed to work at the bottom of the hill, at least for the first half mile, until…

Holy Cow!

So, I’m not really sure what’s happened, but it seems that I’ve just been sitting here and (voila!) a month has gone by and no post. That’s no good. Can’t have that. Yeah – let’s change that….beginning now. Let’s talk about something relevant – airport prices. Okay, when was the last time you bought food at the airport? Let’s get into this. I’m going to start off by talking about this one time I went to the airport and was hungry, and had some money in my pocket, and had some time, and … well, I was hungry. I walked twenty…

On Reading

Not by any standard would I consider myself the most well-read person around. But, in my circles, I would say that I could hold my own, well, at least with regard to fiction. I’ve been more connected to reading in recent years, more so than I was when I was an adolescent. I was living a different life then, running around with different thoughts. But, regardless of that, here I am,  a responsible reader, and I guess in writing this, I’m trying to find out several things. One is what that means – a responsible reader? After that it’s about…

Thoughts in Early February

Writing despite, Chuck. Some would consider my living situation a bit unconventional. I live in a house with another…(counting)…14 people. Fifteen in all. Fifteen, in one house. To answer your questions (one of your questions), my answer is I’m not sure. I’m not sure really how I do it. There are some factors we have to consider here, maybe to help paint the clearest of pictures for you. Eleven of those fifteen are adolescent boys, specifically boys in the junior/senior age range. Given, that’s relatively easy, since, for the most part, all adolescent boys want to do is play video…
