Ever dream of writing the great American novel? I did and I got to do it.  And holy cow was it nothing like what I thought it was.

I had originally written the story in omniscient. i.e. Like Lord of the Rings. But nothing is written that way. Random House asked me to rewrite it in first person (from a character POV). This was tough for me as I had to write a lot of exposition that was, to me, not very fun and sometimes the book showed it. 

I’m very proud of how Destiny’s Emb...

Anthropologists at We Are So Smart University discover the next step in human evolution: Immortality.

Cancer cells, dubbed unwittingly for decades “immortal cells” due to a refusal to die, transition human biology from mortal to immortal.

Dr. Ben Gay of We Are So Smart University (WASSU) uncovered the true potential of these immortal cells last week after the culmination of a phase three clinical trial involving 5000 breast cancer patients worldwide over the last five years...

  How sweet it is. Just yesterday I called my mother to inform her I would be coming home to work in the family ice cream business, and quit trying to be the next big thing on Broadway. I have been here for three weeks, and it shows. 'Squeeze Play' was to be the one that did it for me, and when it got shot down at the last minute I felt it was time to wake-up and face the obvious...Writing plays, no. Selling ice cream, yes. However, when Sid called and told me that the backers had seen the ...

Charlie Dugan, who went by the handle “Old Dog” on the CB radio, had been driving big rigs for more years than he cared to recall and had more than five million accident free miles to his credit. He was, as many of the younger and newer drivers called them, an “old hand” when it came to life behind the wheel of an eighty thousand pound, seventy two feet long big rig. He was a tall, well built man with neatly cut silver hair beneath his ball cap with the Kenworth logo em...

THE HOUSES IN ROSSFORD

Fenn Houghton and his significant other, Todd are quickly going broke. That’s the bad news. But they find half a million dollars; that’s the good news.

"There are those who write things down and those who don't."  Judy giggled a bit as she realized she was talking aloud to herself.  "And a whole lot o' people in between who do a little of both," she continued.  With a sigh, she snuggled into the chair next to her bed.  "If you don't write it down, then it didn't happen."  Where had she read that?
She closed her eyes and unconsciously massaged her left wrist where the bullhead IV lay in her vein.  That damned thing...
I am back... sorry for the absence.  I bou7ght a new computer last week, and cgot me a little  cricket modum so Ican reach the net anywhate in Chicago.

 

The last time I was in here, I was still working on the Peace and Piperdreams show.  I Hope you all got to listen a few times.  We did six hours a week, a combination of co9medi improv (based on skits we came up with before hand, kind of playing with  a net of a few ideas, then taking it from there).   I...

Once upon a time there were three sounds looking for work.  These sounds were Whrrr, Grr, and Skruuuunk.  They were down on their luck sounds.  All the good jobs had been taken up by other, more famous sounds such as Snap, Crackle and Pop; Do, Rei and Mi and famous twosomes such as Ding and Dong and their slightly less famous cousins Bing and Bong.

The biggest problem is that no one seemed to want Whrrr, Grr and Skruuuunk around.  Every once in a while they would get a job...

The following is a explanation of the events and motivations that led to our company’s latest advances in virtual reality and its implications. For the last two decades much of our resources were focused on the meticulous construction of virtual worlds and then adapting them to the available technology. The focus of our company and a passion of mine ever since I played my first game, has always been to create the most immersive experience possible. ...

"I locked you into a lease for at least a year, so you don’t have to worry about it being sold from under you. It’ll give you some time to think about coming down to the bank to consider a mortgage if you really are serious about buying."

"That’s good of you, Mr. MacDowell. By Paddy, we’ve always dreamed of owning a home." Cory felt comfortable with the banker and didn’t mind divulging unabashedly his future plan."Oh, don’t be so formal. Josh is t...

This is a chapter from a book I just finished writing.  I still have to edit, and with school, that may be awhile, but wanted to post something in the writing area of JU.  (JUWC forgive the repeat.)



 

The first sensation upon waking was a terrible pulsing in my face. The second, and no less painful, was the persistent burning in both wrists and ankles. The pain ended the stupor, but memory escorted in alertness.

I didn’t open my eyes, ignored the blistering wris...

While the knights dispersed to care for their war-mounts, another rode up to the leader. With tempered agony in his voice this heavy set rider said, "My Lord Protector, are you not anxious to arrive at the castle? In truth, your father impatiently awaits details of battle."The lord shrugged in response. "Oh, much of it has been dispatched— barely worthy of the town-crier anymore.""Still, the cry of distant victory is not sufficient to curb the appetite of curiosity," said the kni...
