I would have to roll a 6 on the waterlilies theme, wouldn't I? I'm rather curious myself to see what I come up with. …up with which I come(?) – Sometimes, it's okay to end a sentence with a preposition, it seems.
Dawn A whisper, a prayer;The longing and the promise ofNew life.I watch you carefully,Knowing that I can only seeIn part.Slow revelation;You hide so that you mayBe found.First a sliver, a hintUnfolding your glory,You rise.Terrible beauty,You stand high above, untouchedAlone.Giving all,You ask for nothing in Return.Salvation;Darkness flees before yourPure light.Awakening.Oh, that you would last more than […]
Therefore my next writing assignment for the 100 Themes Boot Camp will be 100 words (or so) about Dawn. I'm thinking …poem. We'll see what I can do. (Hopefully, today at some point)

So, according to XKCD, I am the least interesting man in the world. I will not, therefore, apologize for not posting much over the last few months. I'm the one that pays for this site, dammit, not you. Where do you get off, anyway, buddy?! Sorry. Sorry. I didn't mean to get abusive, it happens […]
I've decided to stop dragging my feet and jump in to freelance writing. I figure, what's a better time to start a new, high-risk career than an economic depression? Here is a sample article from my portfolio… Looking at popular blog sites like Dooce (www.dooce.com) or Lifehacker (www.lifehacker.com) makes many amateur (and some professional) writers say […]
As an “Evil Genius”, I am quite comfortable plotting my next scheme or the demise of my enemies, but I have the hardest time coming up with a plot for a story. Premise? No problem. Characters? Check.
