Conlanging: A How-ToAre you the sort of person who looks at Elvish script and realizes with excitement that those gorgeous squiggles actually mean something? When watching Avatar, did you find yourself trying to work out certain Na’vi words? Have you ever wished you could make up your own language, whether as something to share with your friends when you were young, or else a deeper element to flesh out your personal universe? If so, you’re damn weird.

A word about haiku - MS JamesA word about haiku - by Michael JamesA word about haiku - MS James8 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
I believe there are a few basic precepts about haiku that are largely overlooked, or just flat out just not taught in most basic literary (poetic) courses. Everyone seems to know that a haiku is supposed to be written in the structure of 5-7-5 syllables per line respectively, but there is much more going on than just a simple syllable constraint. I shall attempt to give a brief overview of the main points about haiku.
First off, the 5-7-5 syllable structure most often cited as being the sole 'structural rule' of haiku is based on the original Japanese constraint. However, the Japanese language and more specifically their word structure differ from English in a critical way when it comes to the definition of this structure. In the Japanese language, each sound unit is called an onji as opposed to our syllable. This unit of measure for a word is considerable more concise than what we use to define a syllable (typically only

Hometown: Heather Ridge, Farovia

(Farovia is a planet that is roughly 1320 times larger than earth, yet has the same shaped continents with most of the major cities in the same places as our Earth. For a comparison in our solar system, Farovia is the size of Jupiter.)
Phoenix stands an average 5 6.

She views the world through striking aquamarine colored eyes.
She has very tanned skin with only a thin band of white flesh that shows where her underwear is held to her waist. To describe her to others they tend to use the words sun kissed
She has very large breasts, when her belly is trim they look almost comical on her. She has a nee

An Introduction to Haiku Structures
A haiku poem cannot be defined according to the number of syllables and lines it contains (nor by the number of syllables in each line). Although I do not wish to go into the reasons why at this point (I will save that for a later discussion) the form of modern English haiku, as Haruo Shirane writes, is a short poem, usually written in one to three lines. (in Gilbert, 2009) At this point our definition sounds very vague. If the number of syllables and lines do not define a haiku poem, then what does? And if a haiku poem is simply a short one, two or three-line poem then what separates it from other forms of Western short-verse or, in the case of one-line haiku, a sentence?
Patricia Donegan writes, in agreement with the Western haiku community at large, that syllable counting... is not the important thing for haiku in English. Haiku is an experience, not an act of co

Warm Ice - The encounter / VORECaptain Turner was out of options. The ice storm was worse than the crew thought at first. Everyone stood, waiting and shivering, underneath the deck. The two men sent to discover the land hadn't come back. The Captain himself sat on a small wooden bench, a bottle of rum gripped in his hand. One of the remaining crew members frantically ran towards him.Warm Ice - The encounter / VORE10 months ago in Settings More Like This
"Sir! The door down below froze up! We can't get outside anymore!" The Captain, already rather drunk by this point, laughed.
"Hahaha, why do you want to do outside?” he asked drunkenly. “Let's just stay here and drink…" he drawled, taking another pull on the bottle. Suddenly, a strange sound cut through the air. Everybody looked around, scared, before realizing what the sound was: the sound of cracking wood. A second later, one of the masts broke through the ship's ceiling. A few men screamed. The ones who hadn't been hit by the falling mast were forced to listen to the horrible sound of cracking bones. Hot blood ran

“There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.”
This one is just awesome. I adore some subtle humor in a book, and it’s a great way to start out if you’re witty enough. This short and amusing opening line tells us a lot about the character in a very short time. His name also gives an indication that he is not from the land of Narnia, but is probably from England, if this book is to be similar to the ones prior to it in the series.

He bits hard onto his bottom lip and sighing he left the note on his pillow. All this cheating and intense feelings were becoming too much for Bill and he knew how much of a coward he was being but that was why he was leaving.
Not even the strong figure of his lover, twin and best friend sleeping on that bed could stop him. Part of why he was leaving was Tom's fault, Bill had warned him and he hadn't listen, so the only thing he was always good at was writing songs.
He looked back one last time and then, he was gone.
Tom woke up several minutes later and grabbed the note. He had seen Bill leave and he could have stopped him, but he didn't. He was a coward, a bastard that knew this could h

Taking a deep breath I opened my eyes. I looked down and read the display. I was pregnant! In that moment of realisation my heart fluttered, I was filled with joy. I wanted this, I'd have to live with the consequences.
That night Dan and I had a long chat. He too was overjoyed, but knew our greater families would not approve. Both of us came from hyper-conservative families that would immediately disown a bastard and its parents. Our immediate families were not so bad but were very con

Gerard had just hit him and his cheek felt as if it was on fire, the burning sensation had him crying, since his boyfriend was quite big in comparison with him, even a little slap could hurt him pretty badly. He ran, he ran as fast as his feet allowed him. Going to work was the only thing he could do to get out of Gerard's reach when he made him mad, because like Gerard had told him before, he was the only one to blame when his boyfriend hit him out of anger.

Water trickles in,
among the weathered rocks,
and I cannot stop its coming...
I woke up from silent slumber,
the oceans ebbing lullaby of grinding earth.
Getting louder, stronger
silence of the mind,
And so I did until the waters crept in,
to softly remind me of life.
And life was realized,
Hands, arms, shoulders, back,
hips, knees, legs, feet,
Learn to crawl in sand.
Learning to walk on stones,
I learn to tread carefully.
Safe, sharp, unsure,
how much risk?
A young girl falls in love,
with anything she wants.
Flowers, birds, trees,
a beautiful ocean.
A young girl loves a man,
he hurts her regularly,
and she treads on heavy stones,
like bare feet upon the rocky shores.
A finger slides against the dam
grazing it softly
picking softly at its edges
but enough to peel it free,
and the blood rushes forward once again.
