What inspires me to write

What inspires me to write

Ok, after being asked in a different thread what inspires me to write, I decided it’d be a cool thing to ask everyone – so what inspires you to write, create art, or make music? I write because I must. At this point I’m quite addicted to the printed word, and any author will tell […]

Another Monday

Another Monday

So here we are, another Monday arrived, and a very radical mood change for the better. Despite the issues we’re facing today (you’ll hear about those in a sec) all is right with the world. Why? Because Trish is home and we’re cleaning house. In fact, I’m writing this between bouts of deep-cleaning the fridge. […]

Tales from the Convenience Store: Officer Friendly

So there was this drunk… Saturday a couple of weeks ago I had the dubious pleasure of working the afternoon/early evening shift. It was hot, as Texas weather usually is during the late summer, so we were selling massive quantities of beer. Amidst the hustle and bustle of rapid fire transactions I looked out into […]

Tales from the Convenience Store 3

This one’s a bit dated, having occurred about 4 days after Katrina. Episode 3 – Be Prepared It was a hot, dry, dusty afternoon outside as I stood working the 1pm-9pm, the toughest shift for the store all week.

Hiding in a corner, you slowly die of fright And all your courage runs Rampant through your mind its telling You to state the idea you’re selling. Then shyness overcomes. A moment lost, the conversation moves just the same nothing new is learned because your […]

Every day a new work weighs deeply in my thoughts. It travels through my arm but my pen refuses to write it. Stupid pen! Every day I try a new one, but all refuse, just like the one from the previous day. Every day a new work weighs heavy in my mind. It travels to […]

All things considered (Little sappy something for the nerds)

I look for the one with the oxygen saturated liquid To pass the fluid generously into the wanting I need the gas exchange But only one holds the sweet nectar I require And when he’s not around I begin to suffocate He is what makes my heart pump and pound… He is what makes the […]

Paranoia: by imnogeek

Paranoia My bottom’s too big, my hair doesn’t grow, I wear pretty hats – so my dandruff won’t show, I tend to get pimples and big yellow zits, I have a small chest (well you can’t call them tits!) My eyebrows are bushy, my mouth is too wide, my legs are too bandy (if you […]

What is it about anger

Ok, screw cleaning house – this mood has given me inspiration, so it’s time to write a bit. What is it about anger that so supercedes all other emotions? Pure rage when unchecked can cause a person to destroy not only everything they love, but also everyone they love, and all they’ve worked so hard […]
