On how to make your characters suffer. And sometimes your readers too.

I have neglected my duties once more.
Therefore, I have once more brought a piece of a story as a peace offering.
It is from the old version of my book. The one that I am rewriting, and it possibly will not make it to the new version.
However, I wanted to share it with you, dear readers, as I like that part, and the concept that was behind it.
Here it is:

Boy was that one busy week.
And i have fallen behind on my “posting schedule”.
I sincerely apologize for that.
I have decided to post a part of my story as a retribution for my unsightly behavior.

-“He is beautiful, isn’t he?

Something different this time.

March 5, 2010 at 20:55 (General)

I have got a new hobby.
It’s called Graphic with a capital G.
I am living with two very talented artists under the same roof.
I share the apartment with a person who makes lovely jewelery pieces in no time and seemingly effortless.

On Dreams, or what a single sentence can do to you.

March 2, 2010 at 12:41 (General)

Or rather it should be called on joy and despair.
I have despaired as I was unable to find the story in my multiple folders were I keep my stories.
I have rejoiced once I found it.
I wanted to publish a short story I wrote to a prompt from I no longer remember who.
It was a contest, there were sentences to write the story around and the story was supposed to be short and about dreams.

The Great Fashion Show.

February 28, 2010 at 00:09 (General)

This time I would like to say a couple words on clothes and fashion in books.

Oh yeah, I love to be left in the dark.

I have a problem, you see.
I have seen this TV show, the title of which I will mercifully leave out.
It had everything, top names in the business and a good plot.
Yesterday I have seen the last episode.
And it left me wondering.

On logic, once more.

February 18, 2010 at 17:50 (General)

There is one thing that every scriptwriter or book writer should remember.
People are not stupid.
Well, most of them.
And once they stumble upon plot holes, or completely illogical situation, they will notice it.
And they won’t like it.
And they will ask: WHY?

How much more can you take, before you brake?

February 17, 2010 at 12:57 (General)

I wonder if you noticed the same thing I did.
People in TV shows seem to be trouble magnets.
I have decided to take a closer look at that.
