MORIAH JOVAN writes what her imaginary friends tell her to write. Thus far, they have shown up in the novels Dunham , The Proviso , Stay , Magdalene , and short novella “Twenty-Dollar Rag,” published by B10 Mediaworx, and will, most likely, continue to order her around until she hits on the right drug and dosage. Fortunately, her husband is very understanding of all the other people in her life and her children have no need of their own imaginary friends since they know all of mommy’s.

Moriah has a bachelor’s in creative writing and journalism from the University of Missouri at Kansas City, and in 2011, she was a panelist at the Writer’s Digest conference and the Sunstone Symposium. She is a flagrant manufacturer and dealer of the meth k

“Any halfway decent artist can outline,” she sneered.


You can’t sneer a statement.


She raised her eyes to his.


What’d she do, pick them up off the floor?


Long ago and far away, when I first had this thing called a critique group, a thing that was foreign to me, I was taught these “rules.” I had never heard of these “rules.” I didn’t know what was wrong with raising one’s eyes or sneering one’s...

“Never underestimate the commercial value of mental illness.”
Moriah Jovan, The Proviso

“She just gave your IQ a blow job and she's not even here.”
Moriah Jovan, The Proviso

“I can't be on too long before I have to stop. If she hadn't left, you'd both be home right now.”

Victoria’s brow wrinkled.

“I don’t understand.”

“You take energy from people, from crowds, and you expend more. For you, when you’re on, you run like a German engine, no?”

“Right.”

“When you go home after the party’s over and you haven’t had enough attention, you miss it. You crave more.”

“Right.”

“I don’t take in energy like that. People take energy from me. I can be social, I can be on, but I go home for silence and solitude, not because it’s time for the party to end. I don’t want to hear another person’s voice for three days so I can recharge. Like a battery.”
Moriah Jovan, Paso Doble

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”
Anaïs Nin

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anaïs Nin

“The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.”
Ayn Rand

“Never underestimate the commercial value of mental illness.”
