My Short Story in INK & SWORD Magazine

short story

It’s that time of year again when the make-believe demons and ghouls steal the spotlight from the REAL monsters of our times.

Every day is a day worth living, and what’s life without some sugar and spice. Stories never cease to amuse and entertain, and what could be better than a short story spirited with some Halloween spooks and dares!

5 DEVASTATING Truths that need ME TOO

Me Too

Who hasn’t heard or read about the Me Too movement?

Me, a word that acts as a reference to oneself, the self that one learns to accept and love, and save from harm’s way since the beginning of one’s life. Too, a word that means also, or in addition to. However, when ‘Me’ and ‘Too’ are combined – Me Too – these two tiny words lose their simple natures to adopt a much greater and horrifying complexity.

VICTIMIZATION!!

Say my NAME like you mean it!!

What is so important about it? Why does so much thought go into keeping the right one? It’s not like only a blessed few have it. We all have one. And it sticks with us till THE END.

Even though we’re not born with it, we definitely die with it. A name is the first thing assigned to us when we enter this world. A label so that we don’t forget who we are, and so that others don’t have to wrack their brains to remember us. Imagine a world where there were no names.

What would we say if we had to call out to someone, or address someone? Keep on Reading!

Writers are from MARS, Readers are from VENUS

writers are from mars

A writer and a reader are destined to bond over a plethora of words. 

WORDS bring the two together, and initiate them into a close yet undefinable relationship. A writer’s purpose is incomplete without a reader. And a reader is just a reader by name if he or she has nothing to read.

Yet when it comes down to understanding one another, a writer and reader don’t seem to speak the same language.

It’s as if writers are from MARS, and readers are from VENUS.

10 REASONS why DEATH is necessary!

I’m just going to be extremely blunt with you. You’re going to DIE, and you should consider yourself damn LUCKY!

WHAT!! You think I’m crazy! OHHH!!! What did I tell you about using foul language?!! If you’re so cool, why don’t you threaten DEATH with some BAD WORDS, and make it run away?!!

Not so simple, IS IT??

According to most people, death isn’t a topic worth discussing. It’s not like you’re going to sit in a bar, sip an ice-cold beer, and frivolously discuss the END OF YOUR LIFE. Keep on Reading!

HELL!! What’s with all the foul language?!!

foul language

When languages were being developed, every aspect of verbal and written communication had to be carefully considered and drafted. Each language had to be complete within itself.

So the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY had to be taken care of in an adequate number of words. And since the UGLY could not be fairly conveyed with just a few negatively defined words, along came the evil SLANG and its wicked brother FOUL LANGUAGE. Keep on Reading!

8 TIMES you subject yourself to EMOTIONAL ABUSE

emotional abuse

It’s a cold and dark world! Every human for themselves! Who can be trusted, and who can be regarded as a friend?

But before you dive deeper into these questions, I have one question for you. Do you consider yourself your own friend? Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and smiled? What is it about yourself that you find most likeable?

If you’re scratching your head, and trying to figure out what to say next, then maybe you’ve never given this much thought. And things that aren’t ‘thought about’ can also be termed as NEGLECTED. Keep on Reading!

WELCOME BACK to Part Two of Fifty Shades of a Writer.

If you missed Fifty Shades of a WRITER Part One, then you should READ IT HERE!

Humans harbor great potential and talent. They are able to manifest their ideas, opinions, and thoughts into REALISTIC DIMENSIONS. It’s this very ability that labels them as CREATIVE.

Yet creativity often leads to stereotypes, and the words ‘FIFTY SHADES’ can honestly vouch for this. These Two WORDS have been bound, gagged and thrown in a dark corner to bear the burden of their notorious image. Keep on Reading!

Fifty Shades of a WRITER Part One

fifty shades

Alright now! I know what you’re thinking! Oooh! Fifty Shades!

But before you get your hopes too high, and start thinking that this is your lucky day. I’m not writing about the fifty shades of a monotonous color, nor am I offering you a glimpse into anything even remotely related to the color GREY.

Aww Shucks! That’s quite disheartening.

What is it with this color anyways? Maybe it symbolizes the fine line that separates black and white.

Yeah STUPID, that’s why it’s called grey…DUH!! Keep on Reading!
