Joseph Bartley Haltom III Joseph Bartley Haltom III's blog:
I began writing poetry at the age of fifteen. I started writing it, because I had fallen head over heels for a slightly older teenage girl named April. I merely glanced in her direction, and in that instance I knew this was the person I would love for the rest of my life regardless of whether it... Read more of this blog post »

Chapter 1

It was a cold winter night with heavy snowfall.
A Mercedes E class, being driven at a high speed with its
fog lights shining, appeared in the dark street... Suddenly,
a hairpin bend approached. The driver saw the bend at
the last moment, but lost his control over the vehicle..
The car skid on... Read more of this blog post »

Matthew  Williams Matthew Williams's blog:
Just a quick update on Talia's Kiss. Eleven chapters complete now, but I'm still a bit behind schedule.

I am definitely enjoying the process more than with my other stories. Working with a framework, rather than a firm plan does feel more fluid when new ideas present themselves.

The story is coming... Read more of this blog post »

Chapter 13

Entering the flow of traffic, Brand switched the wipers on high to remove the water pouring down. He hesitated at the exit, letting cars merge into his lane between his truck and the men from the casino. Several car lengths back, combined with the pouring rain, should help mask his tru...

Early on in chapter three, William is reminiscing about his adolescence with the Abbot and his grandson, Robert. The topic of Largs enters the dialogue.
The battle of Largs (October, 1263) was the final encounter between the Scots of the western isles as well as the western mainland (Argyll, Ayr,... Read more of this blog post »

When I was younger I worked in logging--falling and bucking trees marked for thinning in research forest areas. I remember one day it was raining heavily and overcast; then the sun started to break through and the sky became blue as the wind forced away the clouds. The sun came out fully. The for...

Patrick LeClerc Patrick LeClerc's blog:
Our writing will always be shaped by our values, our opinions and our politics. That’s inevitable. It’s even more evident in fantasy or s/f where we are creating a world of our own, not just showing our current one through our lens. It’s very tempting to write a story that justified our own belie... Read more of this blog post »

Ruby moved slowly, seductively out of the saloon. Men parted like the Red Sea as the bleached blonde in the too tight red dress swaggered towards the school marm. Her breasts rose and fell as she walked, hypnotizing every male in sight.
