DARK SKIES


mistymorrning Source: imgfave-chat-hero   Dark skies are moving in. The town is dark as sin. Rumbling fills the humid air, And The Dead will soon be here. Hail begins to fall, Big as a baseball. Lightning joins the hot fray. I’m not going to stay. We must escape this night Before we lose the fight. He has come for me. I’m as afraid as I can be.

Food Festivals of Friuli (Part 4): Festa dei Frutti di Bosco


The final stop on my festival tour that July was Forni Avoltri, located in Carnia’s far north near the Austrian border. Celebrating the berries of the forest, this festival was the largest of all those I attended in Carnia. The village straddles the Degano River, and most of the festival events were to take place on the farthest side where traditional wooden homes scale the forested hills. On the day I arrived, workers were erecting carnival rides in an empty parking lot and setting up booths along the steep roads. I took a short hike up into the mountains, past a dribbling brook and miniature waterfall, to the Goccia di Carnia plant, where fresh spring water is bottled for sale. Back in tow...

A Character Interview with Miranda from THE END OF HATRED plus a conversation with author Rebecca Hefner!


Today, we’re doing something a little different. If you remember, we interviewed Amber Daulton’s character in March, and it was so fun that I thought we may as well make an occasional habit of it. I had the pleasure of … Continue reading → Original link

Think fast: outlining a novella in two hours


So what happened was this: after posting about my idea of writing a story based on a character like Captain Katanga in the Indiana Jones movies, I was discussing details and possibilities with my friends online. Stuff like who’d be part of the crew, would they operate only in the Mediterranean or extend their activities to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, would they kick Nazi ass exclusively or would they also punch some other occasional colonial bad guys… stuff like that. And one of my publishers dropped me a line… “You know where to send this one once it’s finished, right?” And so, considering the pitch had already happened and worked without me doing nothing, I went and sent him a proper...

Does Everyone Really Love a Bad Boy? | Legends of Windemere

Physiologically, there is an adrenaline rush from interacting with a ‘Bad Boy’. They tend to have this aura of danger or risk because of that anti-norm activity/description. It’s naughty to be interested in them since you don’t know what will happen. This feeds a psychological desire to break a rut and shake up your own world. A person can’t stay the same if they interact with this potential catalyst for change. This might be why there are times where it seems the attraction is more to what the ‘Bad Boy’ stands for than who or what they are. It also goes contrary to the attempt to tame him and bring him closer to the norms. One of my favorite reviewer descriptions of Amos Boudreaux, in Bayou...

How to find right business connections?


When you walk on the hard path of betrayal and disloyalty, you will be frustrated. Everyone will be the same for you, the face you can't trust. Someone who will screw you. Another one who will use you and take advantage.  This is not the right way if you want success.  The first step to recover from traitors is to forget the past. Don't look back, you are not going that way. It means: If someone rejected you in the past, let him stay there. Don't beg for return and don't accept if he changes mind.  If someone called you after century passed, don't accept this call. Ignore and go forward. The second step is to stop comparing people. We are different, and if someone reminds you of the bad pers...

Sometimes Clarity Can Only Come From A Change In Framing...


Hey Everyone, This is one of multiple posts I'll have in response to the anti-women legislation that has gained momentum thanks to the Tyrant in Chief stacking our Supreme Court with members of the corporately owned Christian Taliban. I won't apologize for my focus on this issue because I think it's a human rights issue that is being either ignored or framed incorrectly by the mainstream media. This attack on basic human rights for half the population is not something I'm going to let pass without commentary. So, buckle-up, buttercup, I'm about to speak some truth. I was reading over the international war crimes statute as applies to forced pregnancy, which is both a crime against humanity a...
