Keep Going (Monday Inspiration)

Keep going with it. It’s hard, this writing thing. It’s hard to write a book, or short story, or even flash fiction. Sometimes you aren’t motivated, other times you don’t have the time. Maybe you’re just stuck in a rut. Keep going. Keep trying. You will find your words again.

Mask (From the Archives)

Vineck pulled the mask over his face. The long beak of the mask stuck our a good half a foot from his face.  He adjusted the straps at the back of his head. It was heavy, heavier than he remembered it had been last week.  But this week is different, he thought. This week it … More Mask (From the Archives)

Necromancer (A Teacup Story)

Manela looked at the corpse at her feet. “Just do it,” Terak said. He always thought that this was easy to do. Necromancy was an art. It was the art of the soul, of the thing that connected the conscious mind to this dull plane of existence. Rain hammered around them. Manela wished it was … More Necromancer (A Teacup Story)

Luminous (A Teacup Story)

The stars twinkle above you, gently pulsing as they bubble and collapse upon the backdrop of the universe. You watch them throughout the night. Hoping for guidance. Wisdom. Assurance. Tomorrow, your country goes to battle. You lead it, at the front, donned in the glory of armour, a canvas to be painted with the blood … More Luminous (A Teacup Story)

Each Draft is an Improvement (Monday Inspiration)

Every time you work on your draft, you make your story better. Every word, every sentence, every paragraph you look at and consider is another word closer to your final novel. Keep going. Keep editing. Keep drafting. And one day, the story on your page will match the one in your mind.

Innocent (From the Archives)

“Look, Mummy, I found a butterfly!” Natalie smiled at her son, who was bouncing up and down with only the energy a young child could muster, pointing at a bush. “Just coming,” Natalie said, as she put down her garden trowel and pushed herself to standing. Her knee was killing like a bitch today, she … More Innocent (From the Archives)
