Which Merlin is this?

Which Merlin is this?

Since my most popular character seems to be Merlin the great Magician, and in celebration of the fact that I have just released the final instalment in The Merlin Chronicles trilogy, I would like to talk about how I, as an historian, came to write a modern fantasy series about a man how only exists in myth and legend…or does he? A student in one of my writing classes once asked me if any of the characters in the Arthurian romances were based on real people. While the standard answer is...

Eavesdroppers License

As you’ve undoubtedly read in all those writing articles you've clipped out (you know, the ones filed under Helpful Hints at the back of the file cabinet), dialogue can make or break your story. A conversation between two lovers who sound mechanical means the magazine hits the coffee table with the mail order catalogs. An argument between cop and criminal that borders on civility can land a story in the recycle bin. Face it. If two of your characters are out of character, your story will...

Single, No Prospects

Single, No Prospects

My mom was 27 when she married my dad. She had me at age 29. As a child, I thought she was old. At 33, I was single with zero prospects. I was not even dating. This was not how I planned my life. As a teenager, I mapped out the course my life would take. I would marry at age 23, and have my first child at 25, my second two years later. This quote resonates with me when I think about my life, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” That is the story of my life. I guess...

Thats My Mercy Girl

Thats My Mercy Girl

January 1892 Exeter, Rhode Island “Mercy you look sickly, you had better come inside and rest.” Mercy paused, dragging on her coat, hand on the door, almost out, almost free. Her father, George, was looking thin and pale himself, but she knew better than to comment on that. “I have stuff to do.” It was as good an excuse as any. “With your mother gone I need you here, your brother is not doing so well and you need to tend us both.” George gave a thin lipped smile. Mercy shivered, she...

A Touch of Special

A Touch of Special

Wedina Myers was only ten, but already she saw the world through darker glasses than most as she stood in the freezing snowfall, her tiny pale hands turning blue from the cold, as she strove to sell at least one of her specials. She called them specials, because to her they were the most precious thing she could offer to the adults who sometimes, out of pity, or charity, purchased one. Tiny dolls made of paper that she wound in special ways so that they turned into living pieces of art...

Anecdote

It Couldnt Be Done
by Edgar A. Guest from Michigan, United States
like 3dislike 0report 0

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it!
Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it;”
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure,
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.
