“Houses, like people, have their own peculiarities.”
― Maeve Gilmore, A World Away: A Memoir of Mervyn Peake





I was recently at a lecture at Grub Street (which I highly
recommend if you are in the Boston area and looking for classes on writing) and
the lecturer spoke about the idea of ‘setting as character’.





The idea is that the setting isn’t just a pain...character’.

Whether you’re trapped by anxiety, addiction, abuse, shame, or besetting sin, hear me now: you CAN be free for good. The One who made the stars allowed His Son to be killed and resurrected to buy your freedom, if you’ll have it.

As I renewed my domain for another year, I realized it's Wednesday. I'm a terrible blogger.
Writing-wise, I'm reviewing and rewriting some things I did on my NA Fantasy, so that it's a little more cohesive. Some things just aren't making sense plausibly, so I need to get those kinks out before I go any further.

Flash Fiction: Axe Man

[image error]


Another swing of the axe came. Another guard died not in euphoric homicide, but methodical murder.


“Please!” the last guard begged.


“RELEASE DOROTHY,” the cyborg demanded in monotone.


“Mercy! The witch’s spell binds us!”


The axe fell. “IF I ONLY HAD A HEART…”

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
