Chekhov’s Gun: How I figured out a backwards concept

The basic principle of Chekhov’s gun: if you show a gun hanging above a fireplace in the first act, it sure better get used by the conclusion of the story. It’s a clear illustration of foreshadowing, and using all elements of a story for a precise purpose, and not giving false promises to the reader.Continue reading “Chekhov’s Gun: How I figured out a backwards concept”

Marvel is Coming for my Brand (help)

(not serious) I wrote a story featuring a main character in a Dissociative Identity Disorder system. Just a few months later, Disney+ came out with Moon Knight, an MCU tv show with a character who has Dissociative Identity Disorder. And for something as rarely exposed/talked about as DID, that’s kinda weird, don’t you think? StartingContinue reading “Marvel is Coming for my Brand (help)”

Luigi’s Eulogy

Goodbye, Luigi. I never actually played as you or your Italian brother; not in Mariokart, Super Mario Bros, nothing. Quite frankly, I always thought you and Mario were the most boring characters. Who would want to be the humans, when they could be turtles or toadstools, ghosts or skeletons instead? Goodbye, Luigi. I’m really impressedContinue reading “Luigi’s Eulogy”

Do you miss me? I miss you. Last I saw you, head on my pillow, your face lit up my phone screen. They got the picture of you all wrong. – Teen drunk driver T-bones car, family of four rushed to hospital. – You made a joke of your senior year photo, you told theContinue reading “do you regret the headline photos?”

January 30th, 2022/I’m a pantheon of trees

Today’s Prompt: Describe yourself as a tree. Ooh goodie some nonsense. I love nonsense. Here are 7 aspects of myself imagined as trees. My independent self I am a mangrove tree, I live in salt water estuaries. I have bright leaves, my bark is rough, speckled like eyespots on potatoes.
