Constructive Criticism: Part II

Posted by in Gay Authors News, 26 November 2014 - * * * * * · 150 views

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Last week we did a post on Constructive Criticism. I received so many great responses, I decided it was better to break it up and do two posts rather than the single one that I originally had planned. Today, we're looking at the final five author's answers to the question: What is constructive criticism? Enjo...

The power of words: Responsibility

Posted by in jamessavik's Blog, 26 November 2014 - * * * * * · 45 views

Responsibility is a word that has really been raped over time.

It means blame- Who is responsible for toilet papering Principal Skinner's house?

It means shame- The criminal admitted his responsibility and took a plea bargain.

It can sometimes mean burden- I am responsible for taking out the trash on Mondays and Fridays.

It often means guilt- My in...

Is it okay to feel uncomfortable being around your partner's family or am I being a bit of a prat?

My boyfriend and I have been dating for five years, in those five years we have mostly hung around my family. My family is one of those big, loud, overly welcoming types (I have no idea how I'm apart of my family because I'm quiet and bookish :read:) and...

Michael Brown, May 20, 1996-August 9, 2014

Posted by in Daddydavek's Blog, 25 November 2014 - - - - - - · 110 views

The tragedy that occurred in Ferguson could have happened anywhere in the suburbs of any large American city.

An unarmed eighteen year old male was shot by a policeman. Mike Brown was black. The officer Darren Wilson was white.

The whole confrontation lasted only about a minute and half.

Mike Brown was confronted by officer Wilson who was dr...

CSR, Tears of the Neko and 1 more...

I can't believe November is almost over! This day crept up on me and then hit with a 'Hey!!' bang just yesterday, lol. This month we featured Tears of the Neko by Craftingmom. She's given me a great interview with a lot of interesting answers (I don't remember her working at the CIA! :P ) so read on. Plus she asks for some input so make sure you leave com...

I live in three homes

Posted by in lovesickpuppy's Blog, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 72 views

Do you tell the truth or do you tell your potential employer what is necessary? I had applied for a server position at my favorite sushi restaurant. When it came time to give her my mailing address for tax purposes, I had to give her my place of residence, which is an hour south of there. Perhaps she was confused, but nevertheless, she allowed me to work...

Heading into the Holidays

Posted by in Wayne's Updates, 21 November 2014 - - - - - - · 72 views

The holidays are upon us. Cards, gifts, shopping, and a whirlwind of activity are happening already and we aren't even at Thanksgiving.

People are already in the mood. Some have smiles and are singing holiday songs. Others are taking this time to rip into employees who have no choice but to work these jobs to pay bills. Some are happy and others are mise...

On Writing (and, reading)

Posted by in Melancholy ... the broken staff of life, 20 November 2014 - - - - - - · 66 views

Earlier today I went to check out any recent reviews of my current long story (Hercules III), but there weren’t any and then I started looking at the slow ebbing of the number of readers. Oh well, if there isn’t anyone reading, how can I wonder why there are no reviews. And, then I remembered a writer saying something about writing for yourself. Wiki to t...

Suicide... why do people do it?

Posted by in huktaunluv's Blog, 19 November 2014 - - - - - - · 153 views

I've always wondered what drives people to the decision to end their life. In certain cases I can understand why, I may not agree but I understand. There are a few who choose to do it in the privacy of their homes while other's choose a more public forum. The reason I bring this up is because last Monday, I was waiting for the train on my way into work. A...

Perhaps we belong to each other, like we are mirror and mirrored, voice and echo, kiss and lips, dancer and dance, smile and shine, whisper and wish, water on glass, fine and finesse, further and future, wheel and fire, turn and turned, gay and queer, girl and girlish, pretty and boy, mind and soul, heart and beat, music and muse, silence and silence, w...

The Long Dark Silence

Posted by in Wolf At The Keyboard, 18 November 2014 - - - - - - · 146 views

It is my understanding that my readers generally consider themselves pretty lucky - because they get 'fed' new stories and chapters on a regular and normally rather speedy basis.
With yesterday marking the end of Redemption's A Bitch, and tomorrow being the end of the short five chapter Six Billion Credit Rent Boy, a bit of a wait now ensues.

I am writin...

Dear hypothetically gay son,

Dear hypothetically gay son,

You’re gay. Obviously you already know that, because you told us at the dinner table last night. I apologize for the awkward silence afterwards, but I was chewing. It was like when we’re at a restaurant and the waiter comes up mid-bite and asks how the meal is, only in this metaphor you are the waiter, and instead of asking...

When it happened, all those years ago, when I knew what I had done I felt so sick. So dirty. There are moments now, years later, when the day is bright and everything seems so beautiful, and then I slip into that darkness. I’m in that day again where I did what I did. I want to die.
So that’s why I’m careful with us. Th...

Are they kidding me?

Posted by in Just a thought, 13 November 2014 - - - - - - · 154 views

My refrigerator has a reasonably small freezer drawer. I am a fairly old fashioned cook who likes to purchase and preserve foods in season so I went out back in 1982 and bought a chest freezer that served me well for 30 years. When it finally passed on it didn't owe me a penny and I replaced it with a new model.

That new freezer worked well until about...

Sharing A Stranger's Misery In Penn Station.

Posted by in TetRefine's Blog, 30 October 2014 - * * * * * · 183 views

There was a guy, maybe 25 or 26, clean cut and well dressed, who I noticed leaning up against a column by the waiting area, with a look of absolute desperation on his face. I discreetly moved closer to him to see what was going on, and all I hear is "baby please don't leave me" before the line on the other end of the phone goes dead. He looks at the scree...

NaNoWriMo and Fundraising

Posted by in The Fantastic Mr. Wilde, 23 October 2014 - * * * * * · 126 views

I'm doing it again! November is almost here, and I will be participating in NaNoWriMo once more. Last year, I won with Nemesis 2 (which, as many of you are aware, still isn't quite finished; I'm in the editing and rewriting stage and totally stuck, but I'm sure it'll come). This year, I will be working on the detective novel I've been planning for some mo...

I am really in shock of the current events of today in Ottawa in our Nations Capital and on Monday in Montreal. I guess I always knew that this one day may have come, but still, it doesn't lessen the deep sense regret that our lives will be changing going forward.

I will try to sum up the events of the past 3 days, based on the latest news reports and th...
