  1. Feet.

    "Since lymphedema is disfiguring, causes difficulties in daily living and can lead to lifestyle becoming severely limited, it may also result in psychological distress."

    So say the doctors. For me the only pain so far in living with it for 5 years is that, I am prone to infections that others shake off, I can't sit at any one time for very long, and my lower half is rounder than it should be! LOL

    But due to the normal progress of my illness the time has come ...

  4. World Fantasy Redux

    I posted about my experience at this year's World Fantasy Con in the forums, but thought I'd take a few moments to reflect on what the con meant to me after a few days of reflection.

    Confidence.

    That's the main thing I took away from it. I mean, part of you (usually) feels that your product is worthy to be "out there," but another voice is always whispering in my ear. "Hey, there's (insert name of world-famous author)! How are you are ever going to measure ...

  5. Greetings SFFWorld.com

    Hello to everyone and welcome to this, my first blog on SFFWorld.com.

    My name is Jon Sprunk and I live in central PA. I am married (7 years this February) and we have a son.

    I have been writing for quite some time, but it wasn't until college (eons ago) that I began to believe that I could do this as a career. Fast-forward to 2009 and, after several crash-and-burns, my debut fantasy novel goes on sale next summer.

    Its been a long road, and now I feel ...

  6. Unpacking the boxes

    Being a recent arrival at sffworld it seemed a good idea to say hello and to dust off a chair and whatnot. There must be coffee!

    So, introductions. Copper Age is actually two people, sharing the things we do collaberatively. (The two people in question are Bryn Colvin and Tom Brown and we do things seperately other places as well.)

    Thus far there's a story added - written together through the medium of skype, with much cutting and pasting and being startled by each ...

  7. The Fourth Dimension and Time

    You've probably heard it said that the fourth dimension is time. This idea is especially popular with SF authors when writing time travel stories. But what does this mean? And what are the implications?

    Forgetting about time for a while, in ordinary life we deal with three dimensions: left-right, forward-back and up-down. What this means is that every material object and every location in the universe can be described mathematically using only three numbers. When we measure a material ...

  9. How much description is enough?

    I recently had an interesting lesson on how much description is enough.

    My writing group reviewed the first chapter of my novel. One of the reviewers suggested that I start with the dialog I had, skipping all the description I had written to set the scene.

    I then posted the chapter in several places on the web and got the same reaction. Given this, I decided there was something to these comments so I revised the first three paragraphs and reposted the chapter.

  10. Waffle

    Still awaiting news on the below.

    Horror Library Vol 4 cutting block press - Death won't be cheated.

    Murky Depths - Jac

    Clockworkphoenix - Full Circle.

    I think the world does not want me to write. The last few weeks, things seem to have stopped me nailing my bum to the seat, and actually writing more than half a dozen words at a time.

    I hope this weekend to change this.

    Three story ideas/novels are demanding ...

  11. The Witching Hour: an Advance Guard Halloween ghost story

    by , October 30th, 2009 at 01:51 PM (Desert Coyote Productions publishing blog)
    Attempting to clear my mind on the day before Halloween, so here goes with a short lark. I'm writing this on the fly, so please bear with me, and I'd love for any and all to comment. This uses my Advance Guard characters, and takes place after the book. Enjoy!

    The Witching Hour

    Darkness, the normal terrain of a basement, cracked as the light switched on in the barracks room. The hand on the switch, coated in orange fur, preceded the entry of its owner, Kitty Lazarus. ...

  12. Strange

    Strange,
    that you should call me
    ďhey you unknownĒ
    when not long ago
    everything about you had my name written all over
    and just the mention of my name
    excited your heart and soul

    Strange
    How you look the other way
    when we cross paths
    it seems youíve forgotten
    how my smile made you sparkle
    how you used to look forward
    to be with me
    ...

    If your #### causes you to sin, bite it off

    In my profession as one can never have too many friends infact if it were practical and possible I would have a friend every a hundred kilometer from Nairobi to Cape Town, because while driving on these roads you never know when you will need a friend. About three years back, I had an accident just outside Francistown in Botswana. My overland truck was mangled so badly that passersby thought it had any survivors. Actually I was alone and ...

  14. To love rebecca*3

    MAY BE

    Maybe,
    Itís us who are too self-centered
    Itís us who need to change
    Itís us
    Who need to take the first step
    Itís us
    Who should think of what
    We can do for others
    And not what we can squeeze out of others

    Maybe,
    Itís us who are the problem
    Itís us who lack the maturity
    Itís us
    who should seek to understand others
    itís us
    who should learn to tolerate others

  15. Let us do it

    let us do it
    let us shackle our hearts together
    and throw the key
    in a bottomless pit
    where no one
    will ever retrieve it
    and use it
    to separate us

    let us do it
    let us chain our selves together
    with chains
    that no one can break
    then,
    weíll have the key destroyed
    and forever
    we will be joined

    let us do it
    let us fuse together
    and form a bond
    that cannot ...
