1. That feeling you're getting

    That feeling you're getting. That feeling of sinking in a cold ocean. You being submerged by a pair of grasping hands. When you look who it is, you see a phantom of yourself pulling you deeper into the depths. You don't want to go where he's leading... dragging you to stay. You know you can't hold your breath forever. You tried before, it didn't work out. So you thrash your way to the surface. You fight. You fight against yourself. You fight for the breath of fresh air that's been taken...
  2. Christmas Story

    It's Christmas season. Along with it comes the pure white snow on the ground, the skeletal trees swaying--lashing out--in the wind, and, of course, the story of a boy and his magical bag. For about a year--on-and-off--I've been thinking about a story. It came from the idea that I wanted to do something like Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll or like Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, and I wanted it to be as dark as The Thief of Always by Clive Barker--maybe even darker...
  3. Deadlines

    I’ve been busy. I’ve got deadlines to fulfill. All three of them ending by October 31st. It’s been pretty strenuous on me. At the end of most days, I find myself shut out from my mind until the workers who maintain it tell me, “You’re ready to go back to work. Remember the furnace is broken, so if you feel light-headed, you’ve got to stop or we’ll be dragging you out.” I hope by November 1st, I’ll be more active on the site than However, I will find the time to vote for the best—not my...

    They say you can't get revenge on an animal. I disagree. The pack of dogs that attacked my dog are going to get their comeuppance. They'll learn, for a split second, that they should have never messed with my dog. My piss boils every time I think of my dog covered in blood. It could have been worse, but luckily I stirred awake and went into a blind rage and scared them off.
  5. On My Lap (Language)

    A plateful of bullshit landed on my lap. When I looked at the label attached to it, it said, "Johnny, On behalf of -----." I was thinking, Why? Why is it my choice when it's supposed to be taken care of by someone else? I shouldn't be the one who's put on the spot. It's complete-- Bullshit. It seems a lot has come my way this past month. -20oz
  6. Festivities

    The aroma of free food, the sounds of laughter and chatter, fill the air as festival activities continue onward to the end of the week. It's freeing and comforting to know it's not all bad, that there is a bit of goodness to spread around... But at the back of my mind, I can feel the creepy, crawling thing slither toward the extinguishable light. -20oz
  7. Writing Less, Playing More

    I've been playing too many video games lately. I need to start moderating my time with them. I played DOOM, Batman: Arkham Origins, Legend of Kay Anniversary, etc. I don't regret the time I spent with them. No regrets at all. But I'm starting to get the feeling I need to do something else. It's as if I've been letting things stack up higher and higher that the pinnacle is no longer visible. I'm scared it's going to avalanche over me and bury my alive. At this time, at this moment, I know...
