elynight replied to your link: The Three Card Monte by Blue GhostGhost I saw the word “redheads” and instantly squealed in joy. ### “Redheads are said to be children of the moon, thwarted by the sun and addicted to sex and sugar.” -Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker
The Three Card Monte by Blue GhostGhost →
Holding spoiled rich kid Benoit Lord for ransom is just one more job for a couple of seasoned outlaws. Then things get complicated. A story about redheads, radical activism and a whole lot of Machiavellian maneuverings. ### The junk food story has begun!

chainsawsavvy: blueghostghost: I’m working on a new novella length story that has a con/ kidnapping/ hussle for the money sort of plot and was thinking of calling it Three-card Monte or Les Trois Perdants. Any thoughts guys? I am not always so good with titles. I like Three Card Monte because i’m terrible at french and that has less of it, but they both sound super classy and befitting of...

teahousecomic: In the last few months several of our friends have said to us, “I do not know how you handle all of the crap you guys get on the internet.” Most of the time our response to them is, “We do our best to try to ignore it, but it is surprisingly hard.” I’ll be honest. I was a nerdy kid and I was… *** The creators seem like really nice people and the art is beautiful but NO NO NO...

tvorceskiy replied to your photo: I am so offended. I hope this is a robot. Um…wow. Really hope this is a bot, but as someone else said I don’t think there are any on FP. Which means this is just a moron. Most likely a tween that thinks $200 is a lot of money for someone’s pride and joy, hard work, sweat, blood, and tears. derangednutter replied to your photo: I am so offended. I hope this is a...
ashkevha replied to your photo: I am so offended. I hope this is a robot. That’s rather insulting. I wonder (in the case this isn’t a robot) if they are trying to find good stories from “inexperienced writers” to buy for cheap? Otherwise that had better be a robot. chainsawsavvy replied to your photo: I am so offended. I hope this is a robot. I didn’t know fiction press suffered from bots!...
Just got a 6K grant! Baby is buying gallery walls...
Yeah going all legit up in here. The last time I hung a show it was pretty LOL. And and and the best part is I get to build a project wall in front of one of the street facing windows so it’s like a little mini exhibition space the pubic passes by all the time.
elynight replied to your post: Ugh ugh ugh this new story, these new characters. What am I even doing? Fun cliches or annoying as hell cliches? Well I had a pretty earnest Art Criticism style theater story kinda blocked out. It’s cute and rom com and I was outlining some particulars recently and then my brain was like nope, nope, nope. It’s also grant writing season at work and I have...
Ugh ugh ugh this new story, these new characters....
It’s like my brain has thrown a tantrum and insisted on only writing ridiculous cliches.

Kurt Vonnegut's Rules for Short Story Writing →
Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action. Start as close to the end as possible. Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and...
Chapter 32 of Juicy Fruit →
To my ever loving surprise this ended up being one of the longer chapters in the story. Also we still have an epilogue my poor beta is currently slogging through. Soon guys soon…
I finished Juicy Fruit this morning
There is over 11k left (somewhere around 4.5 normal sized chapters) from where I last posted so the edits are going to take a little while before I can put up the rest of it…but yeah. It’s done more or less.
