#Day6 of 365. "Don't count your stories before they are hatched." In The Interlopers by Saki we have a classic story format of rising actions, climax and denouement when two frenemies are put to the test over a plot of land. Who will end up being the intruder? . . . . . . . #saki #interlopers #literature #december #shortstory #reading #bookclub #suspense #nature

The sugar cookies that I baked for Loki. 🖤💛💙🐍💚 I wonder who else knows why I decorated with the colors I did. Lol. :) #Loki #LokiFriggason #LokiOdinson #LokisArmy #GodofMischief #HappyBirthday #ILoveHim Taking it slow today but still getting stuff done. Next I'll be working on a #christmas #ShortStory that I'm planning to release VERY SOON!! #ComingSoon #authorsofinstagram
Uncle Dodo was in his high.. Everyone could hear Miles Davis' voice from his apartment.This was every Saturday night routine, after which we could all whiff the flakes and imagine ourselves in his state. You see uncle Dodo was nice. He gave all the kids in the building sweets, and he'd assist our mothers in carrying their groceries or throwing out their trash. He always had a bright smile and everyone loved him. Yet every Saturday, our dear uncle will scream and break bottles at high street. There his wife and four kids lived, all girls, all very thin and always frightened. Uncle Dodo's wife was rich and timid, while he was not. And after he'd devoured her in the most shameless manner and taken whatever cash he could find, he'd go down to Benson's shop. Here he always got his snow and jazz music. And of course, he'd have some change to give our mothers. Benson's shop had all sorts. One day I went in with 20 pence to take a look, and I came out without my socks but I got a peck. Mother said I ain't ought to be on those streets with no guidance. But I'm fourteen now and feel I can look out for myself. Cause boys my age just gats to deliver a slip over the counter and boom, they flexing mini rocks. Uncle Dodo was in my mother's room last night and she said all sorts of obscene things. I guess he issa god as he gets whatever he wants. I told him I want to be like him just last week and he smiled. And now, it's Monday morning and his Miles Davis is still playing and his apartment smells fowl and these rodents have been running by. Plus I'm not sure I'd still want no prescription on these streets. . . This time i wrote a short but not very short story.

Epiphany It took long enough for the realisation Like a ton of bricks it took cognisance Got to do what’s best for one It’s now a need not just a want Contain oneself no looking back Tenacity won’t let it crack Dance and laugh in joyous satisfaction No one can deny a sincere intention • • #epiphany #tooklongenough #therealisation #likeatonofbricks #cognizance #gottodowhatsbestforme #aneednotawant #containmyself #nolookingback #tenacity #wontcrack #danceandlaugh #joyous #satisfaction #noonecandeny #sincereintentions • • #poem #poetry #poetryporn #poetrygram #poetrycommunity #creativewriting #shortstory #vignette #littlestory #metaphor #readbetweenthelines #wordporn #poetsociety #poetscorner
zimowy bałwanek w niedzielny wieczór ❄☃ . winter came on sunday evening just before a mass. /Ostatnie dni a nawet tygodnie nie były dla Niej przychylne. Najpierw przeziębienie, potem długa rozłąka z przyjaciółmi i to dziwne poczucie samotności by w końcu sypnąć śniegiem w oczy. Za mrozem i śniegiem w mieście nie przepada, wręcz nie cierpi gdy musi w taką pogodę wychodzić z domu. Najchętniej usiadłaby z kubkiem gorącej herbaty w ręku przy ulubionej książce. Jak co roku wychodzi z założenia, że zima ładna jest w górach lub podziwiana zza ciepłego koca. Ale w końcu przyszedł taki dzień, gdy rozmowa z przyjaciółmi nie miała końca a uśmiech z Jej twarzy nie schodził przez kilka najbliższych godzin. Uwielbia to uczucie gdy przyjaciół ma przy sobie./ . #zima #zimowybałwanek #niedzielnywieczór #droga #przyjaźń #przemyślenia #blondwłosy . #winter #winterevening #sunday #sundayevening #shortstory #nextstoryofher #friendstime #friendshipgoals #sundaymass #goodday #blondehair #longhair #makeup #makeuplover

"Helen watched Tommy ride every day. She was a rarity in the sport. The vast majority of jockeys' wives couldn't stand to watch their husbands races and rarely, if ever, came to the track. Helen missed only one ride. On that day, a horse named Brick Top speared Tommy's head into the steel overhead beam of the starting gate. He lay on the ground, his skullcap split, refusing to let the attendants take him to the hospital. "My wife will be here," he kept repeating, sure that Helen was up in the stands. Helen didn't come, and though Tommy recovered, she never ceased regretting it. Forever after, Helen was there, her eyes trained on every move of her husband's horses. She was frightened for every minute of his career. Sometime early in her marriage, Helen began ritual: Each time his mount left the paddock and set his first forehoof onto the track, she would pray that the horse will see him home safely. But..." #love #lovestory #relationship #relationshipgoals #shortstory

Je ne sais pas comment ça va tourner. • — Vous croyez qu’il va continuer à sortir de son cadre ? • — Georges doit se prendre pour un membre de la famille. • Louise sourit à l’homme d’argile. Elle se tient près de lui afin que la vendeuse ne les entende pas. • — Vous vous rappelez quand je l’ai ramené à la galerie ? Il errait. • — Heureusement qu’il est tombé sur vous.

If you ask me, I know it’s very tempting to rush, you can do a business plan in a week and start the ‘real work’. But I think if you take your time and think, use the tools of strategic management to guide your focus, this process will make you confident. And that will come in handy. Everyone asks you questions: the designers, the manufacturers, the investors, your family, your friends, your teachers. Everyone. And they are not interested in your big plan that will get you on the cover of Forbes as you claim. They are interested if you have it all figured out. If you can be trusted. If you are not wasting their time by talking into thin air. Trust me, good professionals will not waste time if they sense b-shit and uncertainty. They wouldn’t risk time, money and reputation if they see that you, the founder, the brain behind the company are not complete. You wouldn’t either, would you? Blog link in bio 😘
Acrylic pour day 7, Warp Nebula . #acrylic on #glass , @ppg_paints #floetrol / paint #emulsion as a pouring medium, and @AstroGlideHQ personal #lubricant for #cell #bloom . Same technique, same day, just much better performed. And this is where I have to question, why did the other painting fail when this one did so well using the exact same emulsion? . Sadly I dropped the plastic dropcloth right on the bottom of this image as I laid it out to dry, so there's an odd ridge at the bottom in white. I'd say it gives the image character, but at the same time I wish it hadn't been flawed over such a large area. It's more than I could have done a compensatory pour over the top to repair. . Check the next post tomorrow for the next lesson, and don't forget that I'm now #livestreaming almost every night at 9pm, and will be happy to teach methodology and answer any questions you might have! . Would you like to see something in specific for the next pieces on my page? Be sure to comment! I'm always accepting new suggestions and samples to try out for future endeavours! . Greetings! I'm The SandWife! I'm a founding member of Melon Collie Studios and available for review and promo work! I try to post fairly regularly although I do have a 9-5 job between projects, so expect to see a smattering of whatever I can get my hands on for the day. . We are currently seeking locations in the central Wyoming area to start displaying our work! Feel free to contact myself @thesandwife or @petaluridae or our main page @meloncolliestudios or comment below if you have any leads you'd like to offer! . Be Good, Be Loving, Be Safe, And Be Kind!

#story of my dice: ‘While you were away’ continues:> . ** then it went bright again. The #dice fell, but it was soft and no clicking sound was heard. “Uhm, where are we now?”, asked the passion fruit percentile reluctant. “We’re on grass”, stated the peacock D10 and the rest of the little group answered with an enlightened <>. . ** “False!”, cried Mary out, “It’s the #beach . Look!” Her patty paws pointed at something in the distance. “Where?”, asked the blue glowing D6 prying. The dice couldn’t see what was beyond them. “I only see long green straws”, grumbled the #Halfsies Magma D10. <> . ** “Please, can anyone see anything?” The glowing blue D6 was still unhappy. “Um, I see… I see… yellow grains, masses of them”, the passion fruit D20 had an elevated viewpoint, “and, uhm, blue waves. You okay with that?” “Hm… alright”, answered the glowing D6, “if that’s all…” . ** “Here are some round curly dice with us”, whispered the pyramidal Magma D4, “we should ask them how to get away so we lose this monstrosity. Are you with me?” “Aye”, said the glowing D10. “Oh....”, regretted the D6, “I like it here…” “C’mon”, demanded the D10, “we’re going.” So a plan was born. . . . @nadarracreations #whileyouwereaway #sorgenfresser #dicemanic #diceaddict #shortstory #iphonephotography #pnprpg
365 Writing Challenge (link in bio) Day 30: Mediocre His heartbeat was too weak. He didn’t remember when he was captured or how long he has been there. The only certainty was that he was about to die. In his latest moments he tried to remember his life. There was almost nothing remarkable: Día 30: Mediocre El latido de su corazón era muy débil. No recordaba cuándo lo habían capturado ni cuánto tiempo llevaba allí. Su única certeza era que iba a morir. En sus últimos instantes intentaba recordar su vida. Poco había que destacar. #writingchallenge #writing #relatos #shortstory

“But if I am dreaming, how are you here?” “That is simple and is also the first lesson. The dreamworld connects us all. Most of us just go through life letting our dreams control us. Either pleasant or our worst nightmares. We just lay there and take them. But not for the users of magic.” I nodded at her, trying to comprehend. She smiled and knew I did not. “Listen it is really basic. I am in your dream because I can control mine. And I can invade yours because you have no protection setup to stop me. We have a two-week ride to hesin. Each night while you sleep, you will also train. #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #writersnetwork #writing #fantasywritersofinstagram #fantasy #fantasybooks #fantasywriter #darkfantasybooks #darkfantasy #darkfantasywriter #Prometheussilver #wordcount #writerslife #writerslifeforme #writerlifestyles #fantasychat #fanfic #teasertuesday #readme #readmefirst #novella #shortstory #shortstorywriter #luxaar #thief #thieves #princess #theprincess #therat

die tür öffnet sich in der dunkelheit. der erste schritt der lockigen, rothaarigen in die wohnung von liro umhülte nafi mit geborgenheit. die begegnung mit der hauskatze, welche so süss miaute, eine weitere vertraute. die nacht war zu kurz, nach dem absturz in der bar, war klar, was war. ja, im schlafgemach die restliche zeit verbracht. wie er danach so neben ihr lag und schlief, in ihrem kopf eine stimme rief; sonderbar die unbekannte nähe so bekannt und nah, gar nicht in der ferne. das miauen der katze und wie er so schlief, liessen ihre augen immer nur für kurze zeit schliessen. gedanken fliessen. immer wieder als nafi verwachte, wachte die katze im bett. als er schlief, lief die kleine umher und schmuste mit nafi, sie mochte die katze sehr, ja, sie vermisst sie sehr. die augen wieder geschlossen, schlief sie ein, minuten flossen. am morgen sprang die katze spielerisch auf die decke und weckte nafi aus ihrem schlaf. als liro kurze zeit später die augen öffnet, die hand auf nafis körper legte und sie wieder erregte... tja, was sie nicht überlegte, dass sie sich eine bürde auferlegte und sie jetzt ein einziger gedanke bewegte: und ich würde immer wieder zu dem moment zurück, wo die katze auf meine füsse springt und deine hand mich berührt. ungewissheit... . . . . . . . . #textpost #text #history #story #storytime #writer #writersofinsta #igwriters #igwritersclub #kurzgeschichte #shortstory #shortstories #love #lovestory #moments of #life #memories #schriftsteller #schreiben wird #bleiben #instagood #instagram #writerslife #poetry #poetryslam #poetrycommunity #poesie #slam #moodygrams #liebesgeschichte
