Hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far, but now it's almost over and that means that it's once more time to bring you a couple of new prompts courtesy of the prompt guru, Comicfan. Hopefully one of these two prompts spark something for you, if it does, make sure to share it in the Writing Prompts Forum and maybe we'll feature it next week in the F...

SO, IF YOU ARE TRYING

Posted by in The Rossford Blog, 25 July 2014 - * * * * * · 15 views
rossford, blog

Right now, as life becomes much less certain and I am looking around at new work opportunities, I have to remember the most important thing, and what holds it all together for me, is the life of being a storyteller. I'm not saying that this is how it has to be for everyone, but if you are any good, then yeah, I'm afraid that's exactly how it has to be. Th...

Endings

Posted by in The River Song, 25 July 2014 - - - - - - · 46 views

In a purely technical sense, as of now, I am unemployed. I left my employer this morning having handed in my ID card, blackberry, laptop etc and very much feeling the effects of my leaving party last night.

Obviously this is good news, not least because i will now have time to actually fulfil my obligations as a beta reader.

I now have a week of unempl...

Posted by in jamessavik's Blog, 24 July 2014 - - - - - - · 16 views

In Northern California, Lava Beds is a rugged beauty created by the Medicine Lake Shield volcano.

The landscape is covered in basalt- a thick, dark lava and many features like hundreds of lava tubes and vents.

The Brazilian Steakhouse

Posted by in Percy's Blog, 24 July 2014 - - - - - - · 54 views

My partner and I often take walks in the evening and some months ago we saw that a new restaurant had opened a few blocks from our home. Under the name of the restaurant, in elegant script, were the words “A Brazilian Steakhouse.” The architecture was modern. Large, plate glass windows offered a view of the bar and beyond that we could see white tableclot...

Sommersturm (summer storm Germany 2004)- This was actually my first gay non-pornographic movie (I had used Bearshare to download it, because I didn't have a credit card and I didn't know where else I could find gay movie s, I wish I could pay the producers for giving me a great introduction into coming...

"Don't Panic!" – or, how to read a screenplay



In a scene from the pen of the immortal Douglas Adams, we are presented with this image:

"Ford!" he said, "there's an infinite number of monkeys outside
who want to talk to us about this script for Hamlet they've worked out."

Douglas' work, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, explains that th...

Trials and Tribulations

Posted by in Billy Martin's Blog, 23 July 2014 - * * * * * · 120 views

Trials and Tribulations I have decided to end Trials and Tribulations Book 1 The Beginning with chapter 26, Family. I will be taking some time off and then begin the second book, yet to be named.

Thank you everyone that ever wrote me, commented on a chapter, and/or left a review. I never expected to have a story of mine to be so well received by so many of you. I truly look...

Copyright Infringment: Keeping It Legal

Posted by in Gay Authors News, 23 July 2014 - - - - - - · 287 views

Every once in a while I like to take a look through the blog to see what has been used before that could be useful to some of the newer authors here on Gay Authors. Back in October 2012, Sara Alva (known then as KingdombytheSea) shared her experience with using song lyrics in her story Social Skills. Many authors use song lyrics in their stories without...

Short Story Anthology Release

Short Story Anthology Release Evening y'all,

I am delighted to announce that I have/about to have, a second short story published exclusively by House of Erotica.

The story is Limelight and Gin : Ruby Rose is the hottest jazz singer in town, and Eugene loves working for her as a backing dancer. He likes the limelight, the bootleg gin, and he's slightly jealous that it's only...

My beef with NA/AA

Posted by in Arpeggio's Blog, 22 July 2014 - * * * * * · 130 views

It's no secret that I'm a drug addict, and I've been going to Narcotics Anonymous for a couple of years now, but I finally decided to stop going because it just doesn't work for an atheist. The whole system is flawed. I tried just about everything including alternating my "higher power" to something other than God, yet, they still shove God down my throat...

Some Apologies

Posted by in Wayne's Updates, 19 July 2014 - - - - - - · 88 views

I have to apologize to a few people. I am sorry this week has been a total disaster and I haven't been able to keep up as I should.

Monday - I really wasn't out to let people know, but my father was in the hospital for tests. There was a concern about some growths found which biopsies had to be done. Good news is that it wasn't cancer, but it was a nerve...

Just Life

Posted by in joann414's Blog, 18 July 2014 - - - - - - · 86 views

You know? I guess I should feel fortunate to have an interesting and progressive life. We had a disgruntled employee threaten to burn the plant down this week. We went on lock down. The local law enforcement visited us many times, and I actually had a pistol in my cradenza. So yeah, life goes on. Ok, so far.

My funny this week was my homophobic super...

Q Tips # 35 - The Look

Posted by in carringtonrj's Blog, 17 July 2014 - - - - - - · 33 views

Catch sight of yourself in the mirror from the right angle and you might not know if you are a boy or a girl: you queer yourself with a strange look. It happens to me sometimes, and I feel vibrant, elated, full of conquesting triumph. The rest of the day is a surge of pure self-confidence, after a moment like that. I feel sexy as hell, and that works its...

An Unfortunate Update

Posted by in trackstar195's Blog, 12 July 2014 - * * * * * · 178 views

Dear friends,

I'm sad to report that, with a mere 3 weeks of training remaining, I was dropped from the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School. While, at the end, I was training at a level even with, or above, most other candidates, my performances in the beginning suffered greatly from an overall lack of military knowledge and familiarity, and my over...

The world stil has a long way to go.

Posted by in WestcliffWriter's Blog, 10 July 2014 - - - - - - · 64 views

We've come a long way in our attitudes to LGBT people in most countries and it still saddens me that so many young boys and girls continue to be kicked out of there family home for the sake of who they happen to be attracted too.

For many people, their friends, but mostly their family seem to cause such heartache to them, more so than the person on the s...

The Unsolvable Riddle

Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, a reporter and lawyer, began writing a series of tracts which when finished in 1879 was called “The Riddle of Man-Manly Love.” In these booklets, he discusses the nature of sexuality including the innate quality of some men to love other men exclusively. As with Karl Kertbeny, Ulrichs wasn’t happy with the co...

Vacation and then my return to work

Posted by in Random Thought's, 07 July 2014 - - - - - - · 69 views

I finally took a vacation (if you call visiting family that). First real time off since moving here... yeah so 8 months in the making.

My flight left early due to incoming severe storms and all 15 of us were there early. We loaded quickly and were in the air before the storm moved in. I guess its good that the Des Moines airport is so small and my flight...

My Problem with Writing Right Now

Posted by in The Fantastic Mr. Wilde, 04 July 2014 - - - - - - · 130 views
writing

When you've been depressed for a while, and you've found writing really hard, getting back into it can be a bit of a challenge. I'm feeling a lot better now. Going to school to study sound engineering this autumn, and it feels like my life is back on some kind of track. But the writing is still difficult.

The problem is that I have lots of ideas, and I w...

My Supervisor Had One Crazy Paranormal Experience As A Teenager

Posted by in Methodwriter85's Blog, 04 July 2014 - - - - - - · 40 views

I've been working as an intern in a museum with my supervisor, Katie, for the past couple of weeks. Today, we had a discussion that turned into the paranormal, and she told me about something that happened when she was a teenager. She tries to debunk crazy things that have happened, but this is one she hasn't been able to do.
It was the summer after she g...

Posted by in Anthology News, 28 June 2014 - - - - - - · 69 views

Now that the Summer Anthology: The Backup Plan has gone live, it’s time to look towards the upcoming 2014 Fall Anthology: Scars.

I thought it might be a good idea to share some thoughts on getting started with your next anthology story, if you haven’t already done so.

Have you thought about the plot for your story? The topic “Scars” can lead in so many...
