There is an explanation behind this one, which will come later or in the comments, whatever. But for now, it can speak for itself.

ETA: none of the words of the poem are mine, though the sentiment is.

for Pris
with apologies to Harvey Shapiro, Lord Byron, Billy Collins, William Shakespeare, Lucille Clifton, WH Auden, Amy Lowell, ee cummings and Javier Grillo-Marxuach.

I read one poem
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
then loping off into the orbit of rumors and lies,
I all alone beweep my outcast state.

but who can distinguish
one human voice
Even in the eyes of all posterity
it’s best to let the work speak for itself.
Nourish an ethical unrest.

No, no answer.

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

"I can tie him to a chair, Dubbie."

Post one or more sentences from each of your WIP's because if you do you might be magically inspired to finish them.

Hoo boy. )

There turned out to be so many that I ended up splitting them into fanfiction and original fiction. )

11 and 17 may actually end up being the same story. I'm still percolating that one.

Also, if you can guess the fandom for the fanfics, I will... I don't know, do something nice for you. Maybe write you a drabble. Be careful: some of the obvious ones are less obvious than they look. :D

Anyway, which ones intrigue? Any of them look like I'm wasting my time?

Still bloody sick.

Only posting to recommend gehayi's essay on historical fiction and why it's important to get the facts right. She does a brilliant job of pointing out common errors and the results of them here.

Beings as how I'm writing historical fantasy myself at the moment with a couple of co-authors, this essay struck home in more ways than one, and I highly recommend it to anyone who reads or writes historical fantasy.

Snagged from awanderingbard

When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Here' lot of stories. A lot a lot. Guess the fandom. Also, let me know if any of these intrigue. Some of them are perilously close to being abandoned.
I really need to get some of these finished. )
