*closes eyes and pulls a random scene from her current WIP*

Caution, ideologically sensitive (it's a story of a man being forced out of the closet by an exboyfriend)

With that said, click me if you wish to read it...Collapse )

this scene is also a half-scene.

It's also a powerful moment of self-improvement for him, and it sparks a scene that changes his life dramatically.

He continues serving in President Bassett's cabinet, too.

In the name of... - Prologue

First public quote (December the 1st  2305)
   ‹It has ended in the simple conclusion that, ignoring the individual particularities of each of us, we can be simply be shared in three social categories, according to our simple main intellectual and sensible traits, and I shall take the freedom of simply naming them as I wish, without any connection to any previous uses of the names, in order to make this observation notice as understandable as possible.
    The differences, as I already mentioned, are not based on color, gender, religion, education, orientation, or any other ways to categorize people as we speak for now… Of course, as I’ll mention accordingly, the categories that follow can be influenced in a certain amount by the freedom given to the children and teenagers to evolve in their own unique directions. Of course that a child forced at young age to get over their feelings, or education maybe, by any meanings imaginable, might pass at a category that he or she is not fit for. The child will live on, but his or her life will be miserable as he or she will grow older…
    Also, severe events in a developing person’s life can as well generate a leap between his or her original class and another.
As short as I can, I shall develop the main three classes that are far better described in the following chapters, so that the new terms will not create any confusion when they will be encountered in the text.
   Animas are what we know as common people, with simple and happy lives centered on their families, friends and own-good. They are more likely mesmerized by shows, noise, scandals, which gives them the right chimera to get their attention away from closer problems of their own. They are more likely to provide food and shelter to their children and, at some time, consider this is the most they can offer. You can meet them on the street, in flashy clubs and in crowds that score catfights.
    Humanes are what one would call ‘sentimentalists’. They are the kind of people that will pay attention to whatever happens around them and act accordingly.  They are the kind of people named by the saying ‘can’t see the forest because of the trees’. Of course they will eventually see the forest, but all way long, it’s the trees that matter. You can meet them most likely in jobs that require helping in any way possible, even though, that’s not a rule. Most of them are more likely to believe in the Divinity as well.
   Strentes are what one would call ‘eagles’ or ‘vultures’. I would call them over-viewers. They are the most capable of all classes to detach themselves from the problems they have to deal with and see the main picture. ‘See the forest but not the trees’, to be more precise. They are less likely to get attached to anyone or anything, even if they usually posses a large variety of things, being able to wield business with great agility and a certain capacity of over-viewing. Also, most of them tend to be quite eccentric even as they grow older and older. All of them love information and try to bring their own contributions to domains they like more, each in their own power.

    Of course, as I will probably mention again in the following chapters, Biology, Psychology, Sociology and the other connected sciences are NOT exact sciences. These are the sciences in which, if I’m allowed to quote a dear teacher of mine, ‘one plus one never equal two’…›

   Sigma closed the little agenda and sighed, staring at the old oak outside…

'the NOAH line - Book 1- A story I've been writing and rewriting for 9 years already which I originally planned to write in my native tongue (Romanian) but I've recently realized there's no point to that... so I'm starting to rewrite it, better I hope, in english
Other short stories just random ideas I get while asleep. *whistles*

Current project(s): It doesn't have a name, but it has a voice. It's a sci-fi/fantasty/Sociological romp. Also a sort of fanfic to indulge my devil side. (characters are based on TV people)
Genre(s): I really hate cubing my writing into a box. but it generally has elements of sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and action
Writing strength(s): rich, in-depth characters, involving storylines, complexities beyond measure. (according to my former editor)
Writing weakness(es): my ability to write some of the most moronic run on sentences, never being satisfied, inability to know "hey you really need a comma there" (according to me)
Favorite theme(s): I don't play favorites.
Literary philosophy: several
You need to write it to be able to edit it. This makes National Novel Writing Month a very good idea.
You may think you're a pretty good writer right now. Come back to that writing 100,000 words later and you will realized you have reached new plateau.
Progress cannot be achieved without hard work.
and my all time favorite mantra:
None of my inventions came by accident. I see a worthwhile need to be met and I make trial after trial until it comes. What it boils down to is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration.

Call me: Annabelle, or any version/nickname thereof

Current project(s): A Friend for the Ocean, a historical alternate universe short story: A prince.  An assassin.  A mysterious visitor.  Keep your friends close and enemies closer may just turn out to be more than good advice.

Genre(s): My usual is a mix of friendship/romance, more often than not there's a bit of everything else thrown in to make it interesting, fanfics

Writing strength(s): Grammar, spelling, general flow of words, descriptions, ?

Writing weakness(es): Sticking with a project all the way to it's end, ending a project in general, keeping things SHORT

Favorite theme(s): Being a strong-willed young woman, I like my characters to have that kind of attitude as well.  Usually they have to prove themselves, or go through tough situations.

Literary philosophy: Not quite sure what this means but... Books are your friend.  As is the English language.  Both should be a part of everyday life.

The Road to Salvation- a multimedia serial story by Laura Cushing

posted by: charisma in originalit

If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, what paves the way to salvation?

Orville Deacon, the charismatic televangelist who hosts The Road to Salvation, has been embroiled in a scandal of epic proportions. Sex, drugs, and inappropriate use of donations - he's accused of it all. In the midst of the investigation, he commits suicide - leaving behind his wife Mary and their four sons - Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The story is told primarily from the perspective of the four brothers as they search to redefine their lives in the light of their father's suicide, and his secret life they never knew.

This exciting drama, as told by Laura Cushing, will unfold through a variety of media - journal entries, newspaper clippings, audio clips, music, and photography.

Join us on The Road to Salvation- the story's just getting started!

The first installment is up, featuring music by Daniel Brummel and photography by Natalie and Yazzmin!

Artists, musicians, photographers, models, and voice actors still needed! If you want to do more than watch the show, please see this post for how you can contribute to our story.

Current project(s): "Olyver Wuhlf" --A slight spin-off of the Grimm fairytale "Little Red Riding Hood," though with a few unconventional themes and a man that isn't a wolf, but a tramp.  (You can find it on my FictionPress account.)
Genre(s): The genres I generally do best with are romance and fantasy, though I like to expand on that from time to time. Sci-fi is always fun, too.
Writing strength(s): Spelling, grammar, detail, introspection (I suppose), and using my imagination to its fullest extent.
Writing weakness(es): Sometimes I have a problem with moving things along too fast. I've really got to work on prolonging things.
Favorite theme(s): Doing what the corresponding society to the story would deem "forbidden" or "immoral," and I do love to abuse my characters.  I cause problems for them constantly, but, well, it's actually rather enlightening for me to write about the circumstances and how the characters manage to wriggle out of them.
Literary philosophy: I always get very into my stories, and that helps me loads.  In my free time, I'll doodle pictures of the characters, or I'll scribble down notes for a certain scene that I want to try and fit in.  Other than that, I try to keep things constantly changing. When a story stays in the same setting for too long, it bores me, so my characters are unusually...nomadic.

I'm glad I found this community, and I hope to have fun and learn some things along the way!

First Lines

This would be the prologue of my NaNo novel I wrote this november (I did complete the challenge, no I didn't register for word count. Chris Baty pissed me off with his charity guilt trip, so I just completed the challenge on my own, and don't intend to support NaNo directly ever again).

Comments appreciated, the prologue takes the form of an epistolary.

The novel's title is Courage.

According to Word I have written 7,641 words of Bad Case. Which means that I have started NaNoWriMo with a bang. 
It was actually pretty easy. I wonder if I will be able to keep it up.
