Editor's Notes: As I Return To Writing....

Amidst the Hell that is my life right now, I have found that Twitter is coming in quite useful as a tool. The brevity of space is forcing me to get the rhythm back, to get the flow open.

The riffs are word plays, some serious, some comedic, but all fun.

I am going through a bad time now. Illness in the family, my marriage and world gone. With my life in ruins many have decided to tee off on me, but Twitter is allowing me to find something that makes me happy.

It's a great tool to practice on.

Are We Becoming Obsolete In Our Time?

For the most part it seems that, as far as platforms are concerned, that websites were replaced by Facebook and blogs have been replaced by Twitter. Just recently I was invited to enter a contest where the story could only fit in a comment box.

While I am a great fan of brevity, my fear is that we have fallen out of love with the written word. That the emotions we seek to evoke will become as impersonal as a post it note.

While it is true that the art of writing lies in finding the right word, that simple word shouldn't shield the reader from the greater, broader experience.

If we continue in this trend a symbol will someday replace language. If you think I am crazy just look at signs on your local road.

Words shouldn't be spared but embraced; but embraced in a natural flow and rhythm that can only evoke emotion in the reader be it love, hate and/or comfort.

The Anthology CROSSING OVER Is Out To Press

MASTER OF TIME and RIDE will be part of this book as published by Horrified Press. Release date will be quite soon.

Oh Yeah....

Yeah. We've been rather low profile for a few weeks and the reasons, plural, will soon have a resolution. We are still here and will continue posting. Point being we are far from dead.
