    Post Fire....

    (I'd also like to post a storie here just to hopefully get a reply on one soon.)

    Twist, twist, twist. A spark emerges from the sticks as heat fills the area like an exeplosion. the room filling with light as though the sun had come in a blazeing moment to drownd the dark out of the sky. The life of the now blazeing light is waveing, twisting, thrusting, crashing, crushing. All sorts of movments only the wind able to change its course. This now liveing light grows wilde and viscious attacking all that come close with a chance of death. But this new life like all others have a new preadator. like the mouse infront of a snake that is being charged by an egal. One swoop its gone as the cold stream runs. The light trys to grow and flee from its new enemy but the stream is driveing to fast. CRASH! The light is hit and the stream starts emptying but the light lowers and lowers and lowers tell finaly its nothing but black pouder but small gusts of it flying off of it with a dark color leaveing nothing but the barren wast of what it has caused. the stream had run out after have of gotten its prey it sinks in and makes home....

    Hello Dear Readers

    Hi, I just joined the network and look forward to exchanging posts about books. Currently, I'm engaged in reading all of Dostoyesky's novels and short stories from a Kindle compendium of all his writing and loving it, as it stands in exotic contrast to my usual engagement with mathematics and computing. Well, that's enough for now, I suppose.

    Hi, all!

    Hello, all-- I'm a veteran journalist, made a living writing for the past half-century. Newspapers, national trade magazines, hundreds of speeches, more than 200 live TV newscasts. Copywriting for some ads, produced a few marketing campaigns.
    In recent years I've written two books, a rather fat novel about kids and WW II, which I hope will be shelved (mentally, if not physically) in Southern Humor, and a memoir set in Nassau and Cape Canaveral. Its keywords include John F. Kennedy, the Project Mercury astronauts, Raquel Welch, Jose Feliciano, a nymphomaniac and a hungry nine-foot hammerhead shark.
    Both books have been vetted by pro editors. I'm in the process of re-reading and polishing both, for the umpteenth time. Isn't it amazing how you can always improve a piece, no matter how many times you've gone over it?
    Hope to self-publish them this summer as POD and ebooks. I'm interested in hearing about experiences of other indie publishers.

    Hello, Introductions

    Hi, I'm Rhonda. I live in Independence, MO. I am a nurse, but I don't work with patients, I work with their charts. I've never met the people who are in my company, but I've worked from home since 2008, and I travel.

    I knit, and I read. I own a Nook color and a Kindle, but my most favorite author, (which is an odd obsession) is for the most part, not allowed on either devise. He is too good for that. I am 50 years old. I travel alot for my job. I just spent nearly a month in Albuquerque.

    I didn't start reading Kerouac until I turned about 20. It was 1981...so it started. At 24, I went to New Orleans cause of that book. When I was 25 (I looked about 12), I made my mom and stepdad who took me to the mountains in Colorado, they had to stop in Denver so I could walk down Larimer street. I wasn't aware he was dead, until I decided to write him a fan letter, and glanced in the information part of the book. By that time, I had read almost everything he wrote.

    This goes on and on, and now I travel with my work. When I went to Albuquerque, I had to go to Taos, cause of Kerouac. I had to go into Santa Fe. I missed Las cruces, but I saw the exit to it. I am leaving for San Antonio on Sunday. If I'm there for a week, I will certainly go to the college museum in Austin. Some of his work is there. I've not seen the original scroll yet. I will eventually....I heard my work is sending people to Massachusetts. ...granted I read alot of authors, but I have the book The Beat Atlas, and that's the one who's affected my life the most. Not just him, but mostly.

    "dying is what the living do,
    dying is what the loving do,
    and the dead dogs are those that do not know
    that dying is what, to live, each has to do."

    Salutations, friends. My name is Evan. I love mathematics and literature; namely, number theory and minimalism. Also, I love depressing stories.

    Hello!

    I just signed up for this forum today, and I'm pretty excited. I use this site a lot for help with research on papers, and never once noticed that this was here. So Yay! Let's see, I'm about to graduate with an English degree, and I'm hoping to get into the Teach For America program that I've been hearing wonderful things about. I don't really have time for hobbies since I'm a full-time student and I work full time. I'm 27, about to turn 28 this year. I have no children and recently became engaged.

    My First Time

    Hello fellow Lovers of Literature. My name is Mona Marlow - not really - but it's what we'll go with for now. I was directed to this site during my research and I found it too difficult to leave. This site seems like a great resource. I look forward to communicating with all of you in the future.

    I am an amateur writer - meaning only that I have yet to publish my work. Currently - amoung other things - I am working on a collection of short stories that depict the romanticism of childhood innocence and the loss of said innocence. I am always looking for reading material that will expand my mind and vocabulary on this topic.

    I am a collector of new words - as nothing is worth reading if it does not leave you with something you didn't have before. The walls around me are covered in "sticky notes" - filled with words I love. If you have a new word for me - I am waiting anxiously! :)

    "I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. I do not think that they will sing to me." - T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
