Bombarding the senses with the written word
This is a story about the Lingus fraternal twins, Anal and Cunni. Now, the Lingus family was the newest arrival to Sexual Healing Lane in a small town called Humperquick just on the outskirts of a rather large city named Beforehusbandgetshome.
Both Anal and Cunni went to a nearby school, Heidi Fleiss Elementary, where they usually hung out with their close friends Org Asm, and Cli Max who were always looking to help Anal and Cunni get rid of their pent up frustrations.
Org and Cli satisfied the Lingus twins as no other…
The dictionary tells us retirement is the act or fact of leaving a job and ceasing to work. Okay, then what? Going on an extended (and almost always expensive) vacation and taking long strolls on some exotic beach in a country you’ve never visited before? What about spending your days at your lake home (that you never purchased) and taking your boat (again that you don’t own) out to fish all day long?
Oh, Oh, how about sitting in your downstairs office in front of a computer writing all day, from eight in the morning to five in the evening…
If you’re part of a rock family and, of course, live under one, then it’s highly doubtful you’re overwhelmed on a daily basis by the tons of breaking news around the world.
For the rest of us, it’s a constant stream of hurt. Most of it is bad because well, news that delivers a shock to your system sells better than cute stories about puppy dogs, unicorns, and Martha Stewart recipes.
All of us boomers know that in our teenage formative years, boys were constantly on the prowl looking for a score, and girls were doing everything possible to keep…
No, it wasn’t how to show rather than tell
The world (and this platform) is full of advice on how to write. Not only how, but what and sometimes when to do it. Most of us are set in our ways and have established a routine (some good, others bad) with our writing.
Some of us not only write, but we edit other writer’s work. A lot of us make our living performing editing services. Even more, do it for free. Crazy I know.
What many of us fail to recognize is an editor is offering advice. Advice on how…
It’s difficult to lead people to enlightenment when you haven’t really saved your own soul
Most of my readers know about my religious background as a P.K. or “preacher’s kid” as we were called back in the day. My father and my grandfather were both Methodist ministers. My brother and I had the opportunity to sit and listen either to our father’s more dramatic approach or our grandfather’s more tender, thought-provoking emotion-grabbing attempts to deliver God’s message.
Regardless of who we listened to, it still meant my brother and I was to have our butts planted in the front row…
As a writer, you have to learn to conquer huge walls of constant negativity during your career.
Yesterday, I took a moment to check my email. Although I savor the weekend moments I spend with my partner (and her cats) and try not to think about work; it’s hard not to perform a quick work email perusal from time to time.
I didn’t expect the first email I read to be a negative one, but there it was. A rather polite rejection from the Sun on an article I’d submitted almost a month ago.
Of all the folders in my…
Wednesday, September first, 2021 is going to be a red-letter day for millions of Texan gun owners. Our dear Governor, Greg Douchebag Abbot, stated that he is willing to sign and pass a bill that will allow the “Constitutional Carry” of handguns in the state of Texas.
But let’s get something straight right here and now folks. This isn’t Texas’ attempt to return to the days of wild west shoot-em-up saloon brawls. Twenty other states in the union passed their own version of Constitutional gun carry laws before the lone star state will this September. Which ones you may ask…
I’m ashamed to admit it but Delta is scaring the crap out of me
Fear makes a person do irrational and oftentimes ridiculous things that are a complete contradiction to one’s typical habits and routines. Fear of dying takes these unpredictable and unreasonable actions to an all-time level on a person’s internal Richter scale.
I should know. I just canceled a lunch date with a friend who I’d not seen in over a year. Here’s how this all panned out.
This buddy of mine and I were as thick as thieves when we both worked together at an aeronautical manufacturing…
A little back history here. I’d been furiously writing on this platform for several years, with my focus on making a living at writing fiction. I know, bad idea, right?
Somehow, and I really don’t remember the main factors that drew me toward Henry James, a fictional writer for Dark Sides of the Truth, a magazine in Austin Texas, but me and old Henry established a soon unbreakable bond.
Henry became a part of me and me of him, and soon another character came into the picture — one high-spirited young black woman named Shaundrika — Sunny — Alexander.
Yesterday, I wrote a piece about fixing a relationship that didn’t need fixing. If you haven’t read it yet and are just itching for five minutes of torture here ya go.
After my darling wife read the piece she complimented me (at least she didn’t say bless your heart — cause we all know what that really means) then noted the one thing I didn’t include in the piece.
Her stance was how does someone know whether or not there’s trouble in paradise unless the two partners consistently communicate with each other? …
