Welcome to 2021 and a new series of Classic Author features. A lot of these stories are older ones you might not have read before, since many of our Classic Authors aren't active on the site anymore. Enjoy this year's features starting with Gabriel Morgan's short story, Days of Farewell, as we say farewell (and good riddance! to 2020). It's all about the goodbye.
Length: 705 words
Description: A Short Story. Thanks to John Mellencamp for the title and story prompt.
So I'll start by introducing myself. My name Is Green. Some of you might know me from my stories and some of you might know me from the post I've made here. I joined Gay Author's Back in December. I followed Dom Luka here when he was admitted as a hosted author. I was one of the original domaholics from the old yahoo forum. As I mentioned before I am a writer you can find most of my stories at nifty or at my site. My new story you can find it in the forums Library section it's called At The Edge
In a little over a month I'm going to start at a new school. I'm finally leaving the comfort of a small school to a more competitive and fast paced environment. I'm a little afraid. In the past I found that I do my best work under pressure. I seem to be inspired by competition. Sometimes you see that person that totally inspires you to do something better than what they have done. Then there is that one person that makes you feel inferior and you just want to sit at their feet and learn everythi
So I just finished watching the television show 30 days. It's produced by Morgan Spurlock the man behind the documentary Supersize Me. The episode I watched had a homophobic soldier from Michigan move in with a gay man in San Francisco. The Soldier ultimately learned alot, but what had me interested is the fact that when the man came back home he seemed to fall back into his homophobic ways.I come from a very homophobic culture. I was led to believe that anything homosexual was wrong. I grew up
I'm planning to use this blog to discuss what I'm reading - both online and in print - so rather than launch with a whole "blah, blah, my goals and objectives, blah" post, I figure I'll start right in talking about the stories. Today, I read the conclusion of Carter's Recourse: William Carter VI by Christopher Patrick Lydon. If you don't want to be spoiled on the ending, stop reading now!Ok, before I get into the Carter saga, one caveat is in order: I am a tough critic. This is something that a
Well my three years of college have finally paid off. I've been hired on as a web administrator for a local company. It's contract work but the pay is good. Plus it's good, solid, "real-life" work experience that I can put on my resume.Now i just need to pass my MCSD exams and I'm as good as set.
Oh, no. He's in timeout. He has been making fun of me all day. And I was just being cute and funny. I don't need a therapist, but I'm taking my time with RitS. And....as it turns out...I haven't mentioned Dave's eye color! I stayed up and I read my whole book.
*gasp* East and West. My arch enemies! I end up Googling a compass about once every six months or so.
I must be showing my age too! Because I could have sworn the Arctic Ocean was mysteriously both at the northern and southe
Your eye color conundrum resonates with me. Heaven knows I’ve screwed up some aspect of character continuity often enough only to be gently corrected by a kind beta reader. As for the oceans, well, cartography is changeable. I learned the oceans differently to those you named, so I must be showing my age.
I can totally relate to the eye color thing. I've gone back and scoured chapters before because I knew I mentioned it and didn't want to get it wrong. So I feel your pain! As far as the oceans go... well, I would say you're well ahead of the majority of Americans, some of which can't even locate the Pacific or the Atlantic, or even know if they live on the East or West coast... And yes, that was an actual conversation I had with a friend of mine in COLLEGE
You poor baby! Noah needs to kiss it and make it better so you don't stress yourself out too much! Tell him I said so! hehehe Even though him doing that might bring you more pleasure and take you away from GA for awhile, but it will be worth it! hehehe Just take a slow cleansing breath and let that and the love of your life help you get through all the laughable things you have forgotten and you will be good. We can wait! Your needs need to be taken care of first and ours last. We will be fine!
Well you know I am all in....Hell you could write about toilet paper and I would read it!!! Seriously, I have a lot of time on my retired hands and I love reading your stories... I don't know what it is but I can just get into your stories, journal entries, blog... It's such a captivating read for me. It is so easy for me to lose myself in your works. Hours will have past and I'll think to myself "where the hell did the time go?". Love the deer shifter!! Another new concept from an awe ins
