Re-Visit Reviewing For The Blog

Posted by in Gay Authors News, in Site Tips 28 September 2016 · 89 views
Site Tip, Reviews

Every once in a while, I like to re-feature what I look for when someone reviews for the blog. I’m always looking for reviews and like to keep a few stockpiled. If you want to review a story, whether it's a Premium story or a Non-Premium story, your first step is pick the story you wish to review. However, if the author you wanted to review was reviewed r...

censorship, critics, writing

A well known author once said: “there are lots of would-be censors out there, and although they may have different agendas, they all want basically the same thing: for you to see the world they see...or to at least shut up about what you do see that's different. They are agents of the status quo. Not necessarily bad guys, but dangerous guys if you ha...

Anthology, Discussion

Hey All!! It's time for this months Anthology Discussion Day! I'm hoping that holding these discussion days will help encourage authors to participate and also serve as a reminder of the upcoming anthology. We had a great turnout last month, and hopefully this month will be even better! Because we have two upcoming anthologies, due within a short time fra...

Not Posting In Pit Until Everything Is Over, Focus Priorities

Posted by in Life is worth an entry, 23 September 2016 · 85 views

I know, why am I giving up the ability to comment on an exciting period of time filled with every sort of trick and gaffe imaginable, quite frankly, I just feel like people perceives I am only in it for politics and debates. I am opinionated, I am strong willed, and I am aggressive in what I see as necessary and should be done, but that's who I am. ...

And I Don't Do Lonely Well

Posted by in Wolf At The Keyboard, 23 September 2016 · 129 views

The husband leaves at 10am tomorrow morning. I have plans, I have friends coming to stay, I have my family and his family all telling me to come over whenever. I think they think it'll all be fine. I'll be busy, between the Goblin and the dog, we've a lot on. And I have work. 
But I see the sunsets and the long nights ahead, and that's where being al...

poetry, inspiration, good poems

For Ben & Timmy: Good poems frolic in the sun.
They bring Arctic Lights to the barren tundra.
They also manage to inundate the soils of Egypt
and blow khamsins over the salt flats of Kutch in the very same day. Good poems deserve a kiss and a wink. 23/09/2016

A Numbers Game

Posted by in Dabeagle's Blog, 21 September 2016 · 158 views

Yesterday I made a post on my message board and my site Facebook page because, dear reader, I'm angry with you. The numbers I am about to share, specifically, don't apply to GA—but you have just to look at the number of views for a story versus the number of reviews, as that seems to be the standard for contact on this site. 
You know, reader, I'm a...

I've Been Away For A Long Time...

Posted by in huktaunluv's Blog, 20 September 2016 · 75 views

In my last blog, I wrote about witnessing a young girl commit suicide in front of me by jumping in front of a train. I knew it affected me, but it did more damage than I thought. There are days when I don't dream about it, and those are the good days. I need to go back a few years to explain why my depression came on so slowly that I didn't realize I was...

Depression, Bob Dylan, And The Future

Posted by in Melancholy ... the broken staff of life, 18 September 2016 · 43 views

I really don’t know where this is going. I’m out of words to put into my current stories and so I resort to listening to music. My choice tonight is Bob Dylan. I could have chosen The Beatles, Eric Clapton, or The Travelling Wilburys, but I didn’t. I’m not really into modern music because there seems to be no logic to the available choices. Music can go o...

Prompts, Creative

I'm Renee again! Not doing such a great job getting these out early, but she'll be back soon. In the meantime, who's ready to do some prompts? There's a featured prompt from last week, if you missed it, and 2 more for authors to be inspired by today. So, without further ado.... Prompt 530 – Creative

Story Review, Mikiesboy and 1 more...

Whoops! I forgot that I was supposed to Renee this week and was sidelined by a migraine, so this featured review is a bit late... which just goes to show that, unlike Mikiesboy, I could never remember to do NaPoWriMo. Unsure of what that is? Check out the review below by Aditus and then go check it out!! NaPoWriMo  Mikiesboy  Reviewer:...

Sometimes ... Sometimes I Mess Things Up

Posted by in Mikiesboy's Blog, 06 September 2016 · 341 views
mistakes, poetry, hate

Something happened the other day, the details of which I prefer not to share. 
Something that threw me out of whack far enough that I decided that GA was not the place for my poetry. I was sure I was making the right choice about that.  
However, I've had to rethink it. I've had lots of PMs, lots of comments and one PM from a reader who said she...

The Done List

The Done List
The latest attempt at hacking my own mind,
A journal,
Covered in coffee stains
(Okay, the first spill was my own fault, but the cat did the rest),

Chronicling my daily accomplishments.

A list
Of everything I've done that day
Otherwise, I wouldn't get out of bed.

A nod
to my psychiatrist
(You need to listen to your inner child; be your...

Brought To You By A Prompt

Posted by in Hunter Thomson's Blog, 02 September 2016 · 93 views

Prompt #526 may become a one-shot from me soon, but for now it serves as a perfect way to start my stream of consciousness today. “Damn, where the hell am I supposed to go now?”  I have no idea where I'm supposed to go. None at all. I still haven't found a full-time job. I'm lost and beginning to lose hope for my career prospects. Which I suppo...

cartoon, animation, Hungarian and 6 more...

Cult: Time Masters A Facebook entry made me think of one of the cult animations of my childhood: Time Masters. As a child, I was having nightmares because of it, it's not really a tale for little kids, more a sci-fi for young adults.
The French-Hungarian co-production was legendary to those days, 60 artists were working on it for almost 3 years.
Thanks to IMDb, there i...
