The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 16 A haircut selection /absurdist comedy/ I woke up with the feeling that everything that had happened in the Death Tower had been only a dream. The images of the visitors swept back and forth in my mind – their seductive voices, their sugary smell, their delightful touch – and slightly opened the window into strange reality, or the truth behind the insane asylum called Screw Quarter, filled with...

Literature – with or without ‘writing style’

#guestpost written by Laolu Ogundele  “So, what’s your style”? Someone once asked me in the middle of a neighborhood writers meetup I attended a decade or so ago. “Straight jeans, dark-colored zip hoodies, and basketball shoes…” I began, but my voice trailed off as I noticed a couple of people try hard and fail to stifle a laugh. “I mean writing style,” the original asker graciously clarified. “Oh, my bad....

The Writer’s Recreation or Making Windows

As you have probably noticed, I decided to turn off the comment field (and likes section) on the blog posts. If there’s something urgent – contact me via email. I don’t check it daily but once/twice a week.  The second part of the title for this post, Making Windows, has been stolen from Michel Foucault, who said: “I am no prophet. My job is making windows where once were walls.”...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 12  Fatal Meeting /absurdist comedy/ Who knew that writers could be so dangerous? The hunger didn’t block the flow of my brain activity. On the contrary, it switched on my wit, making my neurons work with increased speed, at full power. It seemed strange that Hamilton had promised the post of cook to Martha, who wouldn’t be able to make scrambled eggs even in a conscious state. The extraordinary weakness...

What ‘killed’ the Mother Goddess?

#guestpost written by Haley M. Walters Around the world we can find prehistoric examples of women holding or sharing power equally with men, but what happened during history to shift the power exclusively to men and ‘kill’ the Mother Goddess? Societies where women hold some form of power are referred to as matriarchies. A matriarchy is defined as a social unit that is governed by a woman or group of women....

Interviews with Authors – Dave Williams

Congratulations on your beautiful new book, “Nobody Will Like This Book”. Could you tell us a little about the idea behind it and about your writing journey; how it started out, whether it changed much along the way? Thank you for calling it beautiful! I was having fun creating my book “The Dancing Fish” (poems and drawings), and I wanted to do something similar as the next project. I had...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

/absurdist comedy/ Day 7  A Never-Ending Race My soul soared like a heartless falcon over a wild rabbit, circling nearer and lower to the ground, to the food of its dreams. I opened my eyes — a monstrous horn grew bigger in all possible dimensions, sticking to the legs of Ms. Amblycorypha Oblongifolia eighty-one times, clockwise. After that strength-consuming procedure, she asked me to repeat the same process. I did...
