FFM31: Symphony of the Night
"Beloved," he says. He sighs.
Mena is afraid, more afraid than she has ever been.
He wears dark silks in rich blues, the delicate bones of a bird secured to the fabric. His skin is bloodless, pale, and his nails hooked like talons. He is like a piece torn from the night sky. Beautiful.
He looks heart broken.
"Just one kiss," he says. And it will be over.
One kiss. One time. She won't be weak, not again. His power will be hers. Ours, she thinks, ours.
She closes her eyes as he whispers her name.
She kisses him.

FFM30: The Monsters We Know
"Are you ready for this?" Kyle asks.
Desdemona isn't, but she nods anyway. They sit in the darkness, waiting, watching the clock.
She tolerates a lot of things she shouldn't. Rudeness is the worst of it. Entitlement is the not so little sister of that offense. She has been pushed and screamed at. She has had to listen to the spew of vitriol so vile it should count as abuse---under the banner of "the customer is always right".
"You're a dumb bitch, you know that?"
"I can get this cheaper at the other store. You HAVE TO sell it to me for your competitor's prices."
"I only need one minute. Let me in."
"I know your boss. You'll lose your job for this!"

She has heard the last one so many times. Well. Go right the fuck ahead.
The customer is not always right. People are shitty and flawed and they will always be. They're more wrong than right, really.
But with coffee all things are possible. For now. Some day, it's going to stop working, and when it does, gods help them all. I

FFM28: Blark's Grimwyrms
The egg was lavender with silver spots. It was six feet tall and roughly four feet wide. It was the only one of its kind when it landed on the White House front lawn.
But a few hours later, there were seventeen. The next day there were four hundred and twenty. By the end of the week there were forty seven thousand in all parts of the world.  The shell was impenetrable It was too thick to scan.
No one could guess what was growing inside.
For the first month, everything was fine. But strange.
Then, the grass around them started to wither. The trees died. The scientists brave enough to study them sickened---the first to die did so on a Tuesday. And the eggs did nothing. They just sat there, looking ridiculous.
They didn't even give off a proper amount of radiation to be deadly. There was no excuse. They should have been harmless.
But they weren't.
By the end of the summer, much of the world was uninhabitable. The people who were well enough to move, did. They left their houses. They

FFM27: Glittering in the Void
Raya hates the stars.
The white hot glitter against the void makes her ache for home. She would fight a thousand wars if it meant never again sleeping crammed together, two by two, like dolls in a metal coffin.
But home is dead. Ship is what remains.
Until Marauders come again.
Raya fights.
Ship screams.

FFM24: Happy Ending
He made the walls vibrate with his shitty music. Sometimes he'd start as early as one A.M. It seemed like it was always loud, always hopelessly thrumming through the plaster.
When neighbors tried to speak to him, he ignored them---he turned the music louder, stopped answering the door.
But it's quiet now.
It is.

FFM23: When the Dragon Comes
Shain was born a shifter, a bear. He always knew what he was. He didn't remember his first time. Or his second. His third. It just always was.
He had his clan. He didn't know there were people who couldn't change. He didn't know there were people who would fear them.
Until the hunters came and broke bread with them. Until they slept.
Then, he knew what it was like to be trapped in one form. He learned the cold sting of iron. He learned to hate.
The hunters took the children, they took Shain. They left the rest to rot in the sun.
He did not return to the village. He couldn't.
The boy was ashen faced, but Neria imagined hers was much the same at the sight of it all. The hunters kept them in cages like animals. With little shade and little water.
No wonder Sokana sent her here.
No wonder.
She counted a dozen, at least. She doubted the oldest was out of his teens. They were all children. They were all hollow eyed and frightened. They were desperate.
Well. That was unfortunat

FFM20: I Hate Everything About This
Things had been weird since the apocalypse. One minute everything was burning and they were out of food, but the next, it was sunny skies and crop surpluses. Maybe it was god. Jeffrey didn't know, didn't care, he was just glad he didn't have to starve to death.
But yeah, the weirdness had gotten out of hand.
Jeffrey stared at the purple furred, bunny mascot---it was licking the sidewalk outside his apartment. Because, of course it was. He wasn't sure if that was the worst part or if it was the fact he couldn't see the zipper or any kind of seam in what had to be fuzzy fabric.
The mascot was looking less and less like a creepy cartoon costume and more and more like a horrifying mistake of nature. Jeffrey shut the blinds. He turned back to his coffee maker and wondered if someone had slipped acid into his dark roast blend before or after he turned the machine on.
There was a heavy splat outside and then another and then another. He didn't want to look but he had company and they sure as

FFM19: Troll Slayer
It is all Rinne can do just to put one foot in front of the other. Melchor and Cerberus howl and come running up the path. They greet her even before she reaches the door.
She sees Adrian through the window, his face pale, unshaven. She sees at least two days worth of stubble. She sees San squirming in his arms, trying to look.
He gets the door open before she can quiet the dogs.
"Where the hell have you been?" he asks, his voice too sharp, too loud.
He shifts San to his hip, angles him away from her when he reaches for her. Adrian is going to yell some more, and maybe she deserves it, but he stops. His eyes go wide as he takes in the state of her.
"What happened?" he asks. He lets her take San and then he's pulling her inside. He's trying to peel her out of her armor, but it is difficult because her arms are full of crying, squirming baby. Cerberus tries to jump on her. Melchor holds up a paw and whines. She has been gone for too long. They are all a nervous, anxious mess.

FFM18: Prehistoric Television
Sky fire comes. Strange rock falls. Trees burn. Many die.
Grog sees face in rock---small people---many noise---loud. Mother says more fires come. Brother cry. Grog smash rock.
Tiny people die. No more sound. No more light.
Grog watch sky. Always watch. No more fire comes.
"Assistant Y-17, Monitor 3 is missing," Professor X-3BSA said, horror dawning. But Assistant Y-17 was on break. He hadn't bothered to sign out or check the monitor back in.
"Oh god," Assistant Y-27 said. She pointed to the restricted platform, and Professor X-3BSA now knew exactly what had happened.
The time vortex was still active.
Assistant Y-17 had just cost them all their jobs.

FFM17: Failed Campaign
They clung to the dragon's back, to the shimmering scales. When it turned, it nearly knocked them loose. The +10 bag of holding wrenched out of her hands. The contents spilled out.
Her staff shattered.
"Alli, come on," he said, "There's got to be something---"
"No," she said and she despaired.
The dragon laughed.

Week #2 - Characters
After tackling your basic plot last week, we're going to jump right into characters this week.  You may have already worked on them a bit, but we need to focus in a bit more.  They're the ones telling the story and without believable characters that your reader can relate to, well, you won't have readers.  Good characters are an asset to your plot.  They advance the plot, offer support to your protagonist and antagonist, among many other things.
Types of Characters
We're not talking about round or flat characters here.  We're talking character categories. 
Protagonist is your lead character.  The character your story is about.  Most stories have one protagonist, but epic adventure tales can easily have more than one as the plot follows many storylines at the same time.
Antagonist is the villain, but not always in the sense of a villain.  They don't have to be the "big bad guy" but they are definitely the person

The First Review of The Gamma Gals #1 is live!
Hello, everybody!
It is with great pleasure that I'm able to announce that the first ever review of The Gamma Gals #1 is live at Fanboy Comics! I can't express to you how grateful I am that the managing editor, Barbra Dillon, gave me the opportunity to share the book with her and the team, and even more grateful at the very kind words they had to say about my babies, The Gamma Gals!
There is a noticeable bounce in my step for sure, and I am even more encouraged to continue working hard on completing The Gamma Gals Volume 1! There isn't much else to say on that front, other than I am still coloring and lettering Issue #2, and it is still on track to be released in late September/Early October!
Check out the review of The Gamma Gals Issue #1 below!

Twist the Knife
My failings drape your shoulders like a cape;
I see the clasp has locked around your throat.
My little traitor, you cannot escape
From prophecies that you yourself rewrote.
You are unfit, so let me help you rule.
I’ll show you all the wrong paths you should take.
You’ll find out why, in life, I was so cruel
When all the world is wanting you to break.
Have you discovered stains upon your crown?
I put them there, with your success in mind.
Inherit, too, these thoughts and dreams unsound-
The agonizing worries left behind.
And if your precious head becomes my tomb…
Then tell me, Brother. Who has murdered whom?

How to Develop Story Conflict
Conflict is the central element of any story. It’s what keeps us on the edge of our seats and turning page after page until 3:00am. Or, as Wikipedia puts it, narrative conflict is “an inherent incompatibility between the objectives of two or more characters or forces. Conflict creates tension and interest in a story by adding doubt as to the outcome.”
So how do you create this all-important conflict in your stories? Well, it all starts in the development process. There are three basic steps to developing conflict, and they follow a specific logical progression because, ultimately, developing a good story is an exercise in logic. So let’s jump right in.
Step 1) Scope
The first step is drawing the boundaries of your story’s scope. That might seem like a weird place to start, but scope will determine nearly every other aspect of your story.
The key here is to determine what within the world of your story is out of balance.
This imbalan

It physically hurts how little the people who voted for trump care about the damage he's going to do to Roe versus Wade, to our environment, to actual living people.

I am not a person. I should not be allowed to make decisions about my own health care. I am a women and I need the government to stop me because Jesus. That's what this boils down to. I do not get to have the same freedom as a man.

Thank you, Iowa. I was doubting the wisdom of moving to California, but now, I know I made the right choice. For all it's flaws, at least I get to be a person.
