So I joined this forum for writers.

It’s called litreactor.com It’s pretty sweet. It’s not full of dumbfuck troll, the people on the site take their craft very seriously(I feel like sucha beginner compared to them lol) It’s a cool way for writers to connect, learn, share and progress with other writers. There’s a lot of famous authors on the website as well, including my favorite Chuck Palahniuk. 

Unfortunately..in order to get all the goods I.E. The 36 writing essays from Chuck Palahniuk and all sorts of writing essays on great authors in order to improve your writing, submit your work for critique, and read others work to critique theirs, you need to pay for a membership. Blahhhhh~

Hmmm 9$ a month or 45$ for 6 month membership..I’m seriously considering doing this with the money I have now and then getting a job now in order to pay for this for the years to come by. Might be worth..I wanna improve my writing to great lengths and become an incredible writer and this could probably help.

Decisions..decisions..

Stone Tables

I can’t remember what it felt like to be warm. 

Surely I was, once. Before the winter, before this new Land, before I woke. Back home, when I slept, surely I wasn’t this cold.

He is warm. Always. What he is I am not. I am defined by him, as the space around him. He is noble, I am ruthless. He gives and heals, I take and hurt. The strange new children follow him out of love.  The only one of them to follow me was bewitched by words and sweetmeats.

I won’t win. How could I? Winter always falls to spring. Ice was made to thaw.  It can only be winter and never Christmas for so long.

But still, I fight him. He approaches now, my captive, shorn of his mane and somehow even more terrible in his wretchedness. The altar is cold and my knife is sharp. His warm blood is on my hands. I don’t feel anything at all. 

It's contest time!

For this contest, we’re asking for you to make a journal entry from the point of view of your favorite villain or antagonist. Pretty fun, right? Right. So here are the rules:

  1. The entry must be from the point of view of any comic book or literary villain/antagonist. Protagonists you think are especially villainous are fair game as well. Always wanted to know what Big Brother wrote about in his diary? Well here’s your chance!
  2. Word count should be 300 words or less and blog posts are an acceptable form of entry.
  3. Send us your submissions here or tweet them to us.
  4. Be creative! What else did Tom Riddle write in that diary of his? Does Joffrey Baratheon have a burn book? You can go in any direction you want with these entries, the crazier the better.
  5. Deadline for submissions is Saturday, June 22.
  6. The winner will receive an Advanced Readers Copy of Chuck Palahniuk’s new book, DOOMED. Pretty fucking cool, right?

If you have any questions, hit up the askbox, tweet us, or email me at emilyrlathrop@gmail.com.

Now get writing, I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Dilapidated Book Contest winner! Congratulations to Emily Turner who submitted her glorious edition of The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams! Here’s what she had to say about her copy:

"I introduce for your enjoyment my copy of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. My brothers and I each have read it twice. The pages up to chapter three have departed from the spine, and I think a banana peel was used as a bookmark.”

Thanks for all the great submissions, everyone!
