End of Deliberation - Flash Fiction
"Oh no," she said, pulling her hand away. "That's your good silk handkerchief!"
He smiled and persisted in his action. "It's a thing," he told her. "And you're a person." He tied it neatly around her injury. "End of deliberation."

Hands are Bound
our present already composts
in loose topsoil,
its grip shallow
on a mound of pasts
our ruin once occupied
before it occupied us
we replant its failures
like we can outwait Time, can avoid
the quiet alone of regret
that displaces our contents
once Space senses
the slightest break in our seal
as if we've earned a grander tour
beyond the upright crypts
we've built of our lives
and a brighter miracle could spring
from the dead seedbank
our dull spark embodies
we ignore the humble minutes
of our own continuum
captivated by the anonymity of eons,
our mark on them, less visible
atrocities reframed
as segues between them, not the norm
our distant history, warehoused
in layer upon rotting layer,
the same failed states
of matter, spirit and being
we've ever and always been
and while Space knows better than i
the end we deserve,
its hands are bound like mine
one at your heart
from the end of an arm trapped
tunneled below your neck,
the other slung lower
spread resting its hope
on our next strugg

8 Tips for Creating a Villain
8 Tips for Creating a Villain
Anybody Can Write a Novel 2.0
Chapter 5 “Characters” – Section 3.1 “Villains”

"The lights burn blue. It is now dead midnight.
Cold fearful drops stand on my trembling flesh.
What do I fear? Myself? There’s none else by.
Richard loves Richard; that is, I am I.
Is there a murderer here? No. Yes, I am.
Then fly! What, from myself? Great reason. Why:
Lest I revenge. Myself upon myself?
Alack, I love myself. Wherefore? For any good
That I myself have done unto myself?
O no, alas, I rather hate myself
For hateful deeds committed by myself.
I am a villain."

I like books and tea.


I recently got some good news confirmed re. the feature that allows one to require log-in to view deviations.

The less good news about that is that now I can go back to feeling guilty for not working on First Impressions....
Putting my non-ff stuff in storage for now.  :(
New words for First Impressions!

They are not very good words, but they are new!  And if I can just get past this troublesome spot, I have ideas that I'm actually excited to write.
I'm reasonably satisfied with the current, complete draft of Much Ado About Clones.  It weighs in at just over 79,000 words.  Probably parts of it will get tweaked between now and posting, but I'm calling it drafted.

And getting ready to hopefully go back to a long-neglected project.
I'm holding off on uploading First Impressions for a short time.  For now, the option to limit views to those logged in to DA still exists, and I'd like to loiter a bit and see that it's still there before sharing my stuff with the whole internettin' world.

I made a small amount of progress writing this week.  Less than I'd hoped.  But better than nothing.

Still struggling with my least favorite character of all time.  Bit of writer's block (more an issue of time, I think), so I thought I'd take this opportunity to solicit your strategies for overcoming writer's block.

It was a re-do, since I somehow stuck it in a Star Wars story folder....  :D

Still love the sculpture.

Thank you so much for the watch. I hope you enjoy my work.
DC-26 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2017

I'm afraid there's rather a lot of star wars fluff to put up with in my case.
Eremitik Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2017
I did notice that as I was looking through your gallery. I may give the fluff a read.
DC-26 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2017
Well, I've certainly had fun with it, but it is what it is.
