The elevator takes ages. When the doors finally open, a woman wearing a pink pant suit twirls a glittery stick in her right hand that looks suspiciously like a wand and smirks.

I chose this excerpt as a undeniable lure of drama, intrigue, and action. Just what is the relationship between these two? Why are they running? Who are they actually running from? Will they escape?

This month's feature is a very popular, recent story posted by Dabeagle. A teen coming of age story, this one kept readers enthralled from start to finish--not easy to do with this genre that sees a lot of stories. What made it so popular? Well, check it out!
Description: Ethan has a plan. No dating, nose down and get good grades so he can go to college on a scholarship and get away from his drugged zombie mother, criminal father and what's left of his sibl
Opinions, everyone has one. Today is no different then yesterday. We all have an opinion, and we all want to be heard. There are so many voices online. Writting your opinion today is very much like shouting into a crowd trying to find your friend. I realize I'm showing my age here, but I remember opinions before the age of internet. Back when I was a kid, and back when I was active in the gay rights movement. Things were so much simpler to be heard. There was a lot more work involved, but it was
So, is it hot where you live? I've heard from my Eastern American and Canadian friends that the temperatures and humidity has been nearly unbearable. Then heard on the news that Death Valley, California hit 53.3°C/128°F I guess I'm enjoying days around 25°C/77°F, but most evenings we have thunder storms rolling in. My city did have the 4th largest natural disaster in Canadian history in cost of damages due to hail a couple of weeks ago. I'm curious though, how is your summer going? Are you hidi
It's Friday, Friday

So I was on my way home from work, listening to Sirius because they are having a 4 month free promo and I'm all about free! So I'm jamming away to U2, and my brain reminds me of seeing them in concert 2 years ago. That got me thinking about how sad it is that concerts have pretty much been cancelled for the rest of the year.
I realized that of all the things that Covid has taken away, I really miss having something to look forward to.
I was lucky enough to see U2 in Tampa in 2017 and

Songs of the Heart
Word Count: 27,938
It’s been awhile since I last posted a review in our Featured Story blog, and I actually spent a lot of time debating which story I would review next. Then in June, Jordn87 reposted an updated version of his story Songs of the Heart, and I had my story. This w
Great interview! Invarcel writes psychopathic characters very well. Anyone who likes darker stories should definitely check his out. I love the term 'plot skeleton'. What a perfect way to describe a simple story outline.
Car lots are another favorite hangout for the officious. As a friend once said of a particular car lot, "If you drive through there, you have to stop at the road to clear car salesmen from the wheel wells."
Caregivers are unsung heroes in many of our societies, oft-times cruelly taken for granted, and offered a fraction of the support they deserve.
Fight the black dogs, I know you will, but also look for help through the times when they drag you down.
All the best - young man!!
