Publishing OpportunityHello fine ladies and gentlemen, I come to you today with some interesting news!Publishing Opportunity3 years ago in Personal More Like This
phoenixofthenet tells me that Eastern Kentucky University's MFA (Modern Fine Arts) in Creative Writing program publishes an annual literature journal called the 'Jelly Bucket'.
They also tell me that the reading period for the Jelly Bucket has recently begun, meaning that they are accepting submissions to feature and publish within the magazine.
The published pieces would gather no royalties or payment, however, this is still an opportunity to get some work published in a Creative Writing journal; the type of text that remains housed within a library for hundreds of years, being passed on from one reader to the next. You could be referenced in essays, your work could be read by people across the globe and you'll have a piece out there with your name on it, in acrylic print. Oh, and you'll receive a free copy for yourself if they feature you.

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTEDSo I was at the doctor's office yesterday, and this doctor always overbooks his appointments. So, to make use of the time, I brought my pad, paper, and sharpener, and worked up some sketches. True enough, he kept me waiting (I eventually left without seeing the guy because it was going to take an hour and a half....!)EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
While I was sketching in the waiting room, this mom comes in with her two young kids, I'm guessing, around 4 years old. They're obviously nice kids, but being in a doctor's office was upsetting to them, and so, they're carrying on, and the mom is trying her best to keep them from going nuclear.
This wasn't annoying me at all. I'm a dad. I have great empathy for kids, and frankly, I felt like whining at this point, too!
But I thought I could make the situation a little better for the mother and her banshees. So I put away my sketches, and drew a cartoon teddy bear. Then I told the mother that I'm a cartoonist, and that I drew something her kids might like. (I always ask pe

Iiiiit's contest time! All original literature welcome.
This is a speculative fiction contest—the technology requirement could cover steampunk, 'John Carter,' 'The Windup Girl,' 'Watchmen,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' or about anything else you can think of. The one thing that isn't permissible is magic.
That was a joke.
Your story must center around the development of a relationship between two entities.

The relationship must be noticeably changed at the end.Distance/death don't count if they're still besties or whatever.I don't mean changed personalities. I mean a changed relationship.

to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better.

looking back to about a year ago i had doodled a very rough sketch in my sketch book of a girl walking an octopus. and when i say rough i mean rough. the sketch itself was nothing more than a study of contrasting silhouettes. i was drawn to the play between a very rigid character and a squiggly one.
i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell

whenever i buy new clothes, i imagine that the clothes can speak to one another, and the old clothing, as i put the new clothing in the closet, are all like "hi bro, im sorry you were bought by this girl man, welcome to eternal mess though, lets hang out sometime, no pun intended" and the new clothing going "terrific, i can see us becoming very close" ...cause clothes are super sarcastic in my mind... and my closet is very small.
i wont tell you the conversation i once had with a spider in my bathroom, in wich i imagined she was a secret spy device XD
so yeah... i hope you all are a little bit crazy too. Life its more fun this way. Just dont go too far i gues....or you can become real pathologically nuts.
