Thanks very much NexusXO. I actually had never thought of that. Happy you enjoy it. Sorry for the very delayed response, by the way, I've been rather inactive.

Thanks very much for the compliment. I don't often do poetry, but this one definitely stood out.

Untitled poem I came across

I was thumbing through some old spirals of mine and found something I barely remember writing. I don't know what to really make of it, but there seems to be a quality to it that called back my...

Thanks much. I am not really sure what was going on with it either. Like I had mentioned, I was mainly testing out a program, so this is more or less brain vomit that I tried to form into...

Free Write for this morning

I recently acquired Ommwriter (a full screen typing program) and did a little free write to test out the experience. Nothing special, but I figured I would post it anyway. Inspired by the word...

I am glad you enjoyed it. Normally my freewrites turn out weird or very incoherent to all but myself; when this one kept some form of direction I figured it was progress.

There are several...

Thanks very much. I will definitely be more mindful of hooking the reader in, and delivering on said hook. I'm beginning to wonder why I had not allowed the main character to go over the top. It...

Two words became a page.

This was the product of an exercise I tried to do. I asked a friend on instant messenger for a word or two, which came to be "frightening" and "drugs." I put both in the first line and continued...

Glad you enjoyed it! I did consider going further, having the narrator react in an equally over the top fashion, but I couldn't think too much for him to do at the time. I think it may come off as...

Hilee Coco - Thank you very much for the critique. I really didn't see how static it was. Looking back on it I think one issue I failed to address is the narrator himself, and all the questions...

Thankfully that initial nervousness has much subsided. Much of it is replaced by the desire to become far more proficient in the written word - speaking of, fleamailman, I absolutely adore your...

A Thankless Job

This was a short piece I put together after a good 12 hour shift, hence the exasperated, cynical tone to it. I'm not sure how well it works - if at all - so here it is.

Thanks very much for the welcoming. In truth, I am not sure why I was so nervous in the past. Partially, I think, it was my own worries that I would feel inadequate amongst others I feel have more...

I have used a similar exercise myself, where I typed the first sentence to come to mind and continue until it was at least a page. This was fairly useful, but the lack of any forethought tended to...
