Happy Sunday,

This six is a continuation of last week’s entry.

The Warlock and his captive remain seated in a room atop his tower.

Enjoy.

“I do have that power, Vanessa”, he said.

Facing the warlock  was a woman in a black dress bound to a chair with white rope.   Her eyes emerald and hair as red as blood.  She didn’t move or struggle with the rope, her only expression was a smile at the man seated across from her.

The warlock rose from the chair and took his twisted black cane which rested against the desk.  He pointed it at Vanessa and recited a language she didn’t understand.  

 As always, feel free to leave a comment or a correction.  I welcome all criticism and use it to get better.

See you next Sunday!

Happy Sunday,

This six is a continuation of last week’s entry.

It comes from a very short story I wrote for a flash fiction contest, which I have won in the past, although not this time.  I liked the characters quite a bit though and I want to develop them.  It’s now an untitled work in progress, which I hope will grow and become something bigger.

Enjoy.

The warlock continued carving the marble block with his enchanted knife, a dragon’s shape beginning to form.  The blade glowed a faint, frozen blue each time it struck the stone.

“You can’t stay quiet forever”, the warlock said.

Silence.

“I’ll eventually force you to speak…and to love me”, he said.

The warlock put the knife down, and turned in his chair, towards his prisoner.

Suggestions wanted

I’ve decided to revamp my writing.com portfolio, which is where I’d been keeping a lot of my online work.  I deleted most of the garbage on there, such as ramblings and unfinished chapters.  I’ve been in the writing doldrums recently and needed to begin fresh.

Do any of you ever just trash it all and start anew?  I’m not sure it’s the right thing to do, but I feel better about it so far.  Granted, I still have my unfinished items buried on my laptop, so they’re technically not “gone”, but I felt like hitting that delete key.

I picked up brand new writing software, thinking it might juggle my brain a little bit to see my writing in a bit of a different setting.

Looking for tips or suggestion to get out of the rut of not being able to come up with any quality production.

If you don’t mind – leave a message, tweet me, email me…something.

Cheers,

Rob

My writer's block

I’ve hit a roadblock

Happy Sunday,

It’s been a good five months since I’ve written anything worth sharing, and I am proud to be back feeling pretty good.

The moonlight filled the window of the warlock’s quarters, atop the tower.  Brushing his white hair from his face, he stopped his work and bathed his eyes in the glow.

“Perhaps you’d be more comfortable in the light?”, he asked.

There was no answer.

“Have it your way”, he said.

The warlock turned from the window and continued sculpting.
