My brother killed a cat today. There was a famous Chinese general who once said that you would truly discover a man through his torture. I have come to disagree. When are we more exposed than when we are in sorrow, ridden by guilt?
My brother killed a cat today. It was a little cat, a black one named Houdini with long fluffy hair and a sweet face. I'd heard of Houdini before when his owner pinned a note to our door when we were out asking if we would like to take him in. She had mistaken us for our neighbor, who has eleven cats. Her name was Holly and she sounded like she was between jobs.
My brother killed a cat today. It was a little cat, a black one named Houdini with long fluffy hair and a sweet face. He hit it with his car. It's a white 1997 Toyota, an Avalon. Our grandparents gave it to us in mint condition (practically), despite over 100,000 miles on the odometer. He put a NASA sticker on it and a sticker that says, "+5 Car of Driving." Before my brother got it, my dad had it fo

Lesson 4 - Action and Reaction
Lesson 4 - Action and Reaction
Have you ever watched something where you felt like it was a couple of dead fish in person suits? Watching reviews by The Nostalgia Critic, one becomes sensitive to certain faux pas that occur in the movie industry, and you can see them in other media as well.
Action and Reaction are what keeps the plot moving. Getting that stupid plot moving can be both very important and very difficult for the aspiring writer. The need to move the plot forward has even given rise to such tools as the MacGuffin, any item whose sole purpose is to move the plot forward, like the Arc of the Covenant or the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones movies. You could switch those items for other items of historical/religious significance—the spear that pierced Christ's side, or the Lost City of Atlantis. In these stories it is an object or a situation that is moving the plot forward.
I'm not particularly fond of that as a writer. As an audience, a good MacGuffin is worth

You're Not There
Arms length
A step or two
Different worlds
Walls to run through
Welcoming smile
Familiar face
But hallucinations
Leave no trace
Revived Houdini
A phantom of sorts
An apparition
That quickly distorts
It's not only the person
But memories lost
Forever remembered
Valued without cost
Everyone's sane in a world of crazies
A world where you stop, and point, and stare
But now I'm convinced of insanity
Because I can see you but you're not there
