I walked into the accounting office on my last day to discuss some matters with a very attractive and very married associate. She’d heard that I wrote fiction, so after taking care of mundane matters she asked some editing advice.

“Have you heard of Anne Rice?” she then asked.

“Yes, I’ve read some... Read more of this blog post »

لماذا تنتظر حروفي ؟
ان كنت لاتكترث لباقي عمري
المعقود بالالام ..
و كثير من الوجع

لماذا تبحث عن مديح لخوفك ، لصلفك ، لجبنك
و تلذذك باياذائي ؟

لماذا تبدو السماء صامتة ؟

و انا احمل في جوفي عشرات الاسئلة


لماذا تنتظر كلماتي ؟

و انت لن تشرب من معنى .. حروفها

A Boy and His Corpse by Richard B. Knight

I often hear from other writers that they don't want anybody to steal their idea for their soon to be bestselling novel or movie. But all I have to say to that is this: Don't worry. Nobody's going to steal your idea, and here's why:
