Blake and Mona #B – Something earlier than the first part

I wasn't sure after I wrote #A whether that was the beginning of the story or the end. I thought about it for a couple of weeks, and then drafted this without much forethought. It gave me the momentum I needed to know that #A was probably the climax and I was writing a slice-of-life … Continue reading Blake and Mona #B – Something earlier than the first part

A public reaming of myself, and Overwatch, and our relationship

Boy, when I said Blizzard and Overwatch were out to ruin my life, I both did and didn't realize how much I wasn't joking. My primary hobby since my youth has been video gaming. Whenever I have some time to burn, I return to it. Historically this hasn't been a huge issue in that it … Continue reading A public reaming of myself, and Overwatch, and our relationship

The dragon’s voice barked defensively out of the darkness. “You don’t tell me what I can and can’t do!” Nick answered aggressively, “No, you tell you that. It was you who told us when we first arrived here why you don’t leave your cave, why you don’t hunt any more,” but his voice betrayed a … Continue reading Not actually a #BayWriteClub submission: A response to a dragon-moved-into-your-neighborhood writing prompt

Sunday writing 20150802 (#BayWriteClub): A (second) fantastical start, cont’d: Birth of the recorder; Rewrite second half of first scene first- to third-person

The eldest woke up in rain. It had washed the mud from him and shriveled his skin, but no wind blew and he learned some summer comfort. From his rock, he looked out on the world, and it was all rolling waves of mud. The waves washed over the rock, dirtying him and his home, … Continue reading Sunday writing 20150802 (#BayWriteClub): A (second) fantastical start, cont’d: Birth of the recorder; Rewrite second half of first scene first- to third-person

The aggressor called out: “Go into the fields, and grab the first stone you see larger than your fist, and bring it back here. Together, we shall build a mighty thing, a home that will not leak in rain or bluster in the wind! Together we shall make something permanent, something to keep, something that’s ours!” … Continue reading Sunday writing 20150802 (#BayWriteClub): A (second) fantastical start, cont’d: The tower of babble
