"“If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it." -Toni Morrison "For me, writing is exploration; and most of the time, I'm surprised where the journey takes me." -Jack Dann "Drama is life with the dull bits cut out." -Alfred Hitchcock "I write plays because dialogue is the most respectable way of contradicting myself." -Tom Stoppard "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." -Confucius"

I've changed a great deal since I last updated this, so I thought it was time to catch up. However, there is one thought I had which has not changed and that is, this space is far to tiny to fit all of me in it!

So now that, we've moved passed that little complaint I'll try to briefly describe myself in way that would make sense to anyone reading this.

I'm everything I say, just rip the lies away.

"How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." -Thoreau.

The western steampunk comedy about a troubled wizard escaping the pursuit of an evil witch who he's stolen a dangerous crystal from.

Story 1.

Hello my name is Cherry...

http://www.protagonize.com/story/hello-my-name-is-cherry

It is about as original as it sounds but funnier than you'd expect. It is the tale of a 16 year old boy who meets a mysterious and highly magical girl who is also highly attractive. After which point his life becomes a game of Hide and Seek with invisible elves and something of a romance.

Story 2.

Cafe Daily (Editors pick!)

http://www.protagonize.com/story/cafe-daily

Welcome to a post apocalyptic and slightly futuristic America. Where the air is thick with flying cars, demons and mystery. Through it all, a  young endangered journalist/magazine editor/co-owner and her supernatural body guard, with a past as mysterious as his powers, are trying to stop all hell from braking lose (forgive the cliche) and discover each others secrets before they become the causes of their deaths.

Story 3.

Russia: The Story of a Riddle.

http://www.protagonize.com/story/russia-the-story-of-a-riddle

Set in Frostbitten Russia, is the enchanting and overly fabricated retelling of The Grimms Brothers, mostly, over looked classic "The Riddle". With a new romantic spin to it. A daring display of love's race against time, across a web of sinister conspiracy, tricks, riddles and lies that smother  the Russian landscape like the ever falling snow.

Story 4.

Frozen

http://www.protagonize.com/story/frozen-3

The newest story to enter my slightly frenzied mind is the modern tale of a magical castle in the sky (what other kind of castle could be in the sky these days). It was frozen after the one and only male heir jumped to his death from a pursuing army; locking within its chambers a great treasure. Now two armies, one sounding more evil than the other, are fighting to get to the treasure--with only one downfall, whoever enters the Frozen castle is frozen on the spot.

Also I have an Exercise that never happened, fittingly titled "Contradiction: The story I would never write." feel free to join if you have a non-existent story.

As you'll notice I'm a bit lackadaisical with my uploading of stories so if you like any of my work and I'm taking forever to post an installment to your favored tale. Make your disapproval known!

Slam your fist on the table and cry "More *insert title here* now!!" and I shall focus on getting the installment up for you :D

Exercise's I've joined.

I'm also lucky to be a part of one amazing zombie survival story Pockets Full of Posey, with @Sly, @Lachness-Monster, and @MoonWalker. If you liked 'Hurt' by Johnny Cash then you'll like this.

Finished work.
