You’re gone, and then you’re back again You’re back, and then you’re gone Reduce your words by lacking pen The hourglass you fractured then But swirling grains of you, I’ve seen before, they never linger long You’re smiling, and then you frown You’re laughing, then you cry Reduce your presence and your sound I search […]
I’ve dreampt of many things And lived many nights In complete terror Immobilized by demons Floating over-head Strangled by a snake that Chained me to my bed I’ve made love in Some of the most passionate ways Always better when it comes from Your subconscious And I’ve fallen off buildings Only to fly and survive […]

There’s a circle in the sky. Smooth and silver and bright. Everyone is afraid of it. Maybe they are right. Maybe it is a sign of doom. Maybe it is the beginning of the end. Maybe it is an invasion waiting to start. Or maybe it is someone hoping to be a friend. I see […]
This week’s guests in Jest are 3C Style and LISMORE PAPER Nightmare at the House of Style I have to get away from the House of Style. 3C Style is an ok person, I guess. Ever since she picked me up from Linda and Bill’s home, I’ve been eating well and sleeping whenever I wanted. The best part […]

I wrote a poem last night for the first time in years and I decided I would share it here. The In-Between: I stand.I’m neither seen or unseen, just existing.This point where clouds of confusion circle and leave me in a dizzy mess. I laugh.Neither feeling or caring, just simply going through the motions.Life’s little […]
Here’s a 100 word story which I decided had to include the first 3 words that came up on https://randomwordgenerator.com/ – the words were bet, deputy and lose. We creep in fear and single-file through thick jungle with no choice but trust our navigation to chosen leaders. Night falls and the rearmost urge us onward; we barely notice […]
Come on you lot follow Linda and get on board with this 🙂
A few of my fellow bloggers and I have been lamenting the fact that we haven’t spent as much time on WordPress lately because life has gotten in the way. We just can’t seem to write or read as many posts as we’d like. It seems that none of us wants to give in to […]
What a year 2018 has been. I thought about not posting a reflection this year, for the first time ever, but I think it’s been a good practice to truly focus on how I’ve grown in my art, online presence, etc.
I’ve phoned my senators until their staff all know my voice and say “good morning Mrs. H, what can we do for you now?”…I’ve written letters to the editor, to the senate (yes, ALL of them), I’ve sat in offices waiting to speak to the idiot that was elected…..I’ve been escorted out of those very […]
by Richard Risemberg There is one indispensable step to writing, and that is that you must sit down and write. This is technically untrue, and was not such a hard and fast rule in the ancient days: Homer, said to be blind, would have been functionally illiterate; he worked the great epics in […]
The creators of Judge Dredd: Mega-City One revealed at San Diego Comic-Con today that writer Rob Williams has finished the script for the upcoming TV series pilot. Williams is no stranger to the property, as he’s been writing stories for anthology magazine 2000AD, including Judge Dredd stories, for years. He’s heading up the creative team […]
We give up our blue skies And pluck the moon And blot the sun. New tides We color with monsoons We dye them red as lips Or blushing cheeks We’ve long erased. We grip With fingers growing weak Until they’re winter white. We salt the sands And wash them in goodnight From deeds we never […]
Here are the new writing prompts for September. I hope all of you enjoy them! Happy writing! ~M xo And, if you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them… To begin, settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink […]
Originally posted on In Saner Thought: About now most readers maybe getting weary of the Bad Lip Reading but I promise that today will be the last day until these guys make new ones… We all have heard or seen about the mash-up that Dear Leader is having with the NFL over the national anthem,…
I wrote this last year during my first meeting/welcome party at my job. I still find it entertaining. what an awkward meeting everyone’s staring at each other nobody has jack shit to say stare stare … all of these people will be dead in fifty years or close unless there’s a war […]
Some great ideas here, might well take a look myself. Always great to support self publishers if you can!

More from my favourite coke smuggling (alleged and unproven and mostly just me being jealous) travel blog.
The state of Paraíba in Brazil has some of the most amazing beaches in the world. There are miles and miles of unspoiled beaches with little development around them, which makes them very attractive. Most of the beaches are in areas of preservation. The most eastern point of the Americas – the point that sticks […]
