Don't Give me a Reason to Sell My SoulDon't give me a reason to sell my soul, she should have said.
Instead, she just stared at the man on the screen in front of her, the man with his long, drooping skin, tired eyes, haggard face and balding head. He was hardly the admiral we had once known. She said "I don't have any desire to do it," and then quickly, "but I'll follow my orders, if you give them to me."
There was fright in her eyes. She gripped the edges of the captain's chair and bit her cheek, fighting off inevitable tears. But not here. She couldn't cry now. People relied on her to be strong. What people she wasn’t sure, but someone, somewhere, surely. She had to believe that.
"Those are your orders," the man said, sinking heavily into his chair. "I trust you'll carry them out."
She snapped off communications with ill-hid despair. Her blonde hair, thin and almost colorless, hung around her face like a fallen halo, fading with every sin. Her lips were tight, her cheeks drawn, and her eyes stared out of bru

supernovae"Wouldn't it be great if we could watch a star explode?"
It was just like her to say that. The violence of another world's ending was, to her, poetic. If our own sun exploded, I think she'd open up her arms to embrace it.
"I don't know that I'd want to be that close," I said.
"That's the cool part. You wouldn't have to be." But she still didn't think we were close enough.
That was how we always ended up like this, sitting in a car, driving to nowhere, with nothing but the sound of the tires on the highway and the company of the stars above us. She couldn't sit still long enough to color in the details, so we never did. We just kept driving.
She leaned back in the passenger seat and kicked her feet up, staring at the ceiling of the car as if it wasn't there.
"When stars exploded a long time ago, they painted pictures of them and wondered if the gods were looking down on them. What do you think we'll do when we get to see one?"
"Take a picture."
She shot an expression at me that I

.:Almost April

Mon Mar 31, 2014, 10:02 PM
Hey everybody! It's been a long time since I've updated anything and I was tired of the old journal being long and stuff. So here's a new one.

Is anyone planning on doing NaPoWriMo? My attempt last year was pretty pathetic, but I'm thinking about giving it a shot again. I'm not all that good at writing poetry that doesn't like, ask me to be written, you know? 

I'm still working on "Chaos Children" (my current novel project, and the subject of these works of flash fiction). It's about 100,000 words in and will go a while yet, I think. On a similar note, I have been toying with the idea of starting a mailing list or something similar that would involve like, sending out my novels chapter by chapter for reading/comment? I don't know if there's any kind of interest in that, but I wouldn't mind getting some eyes on some of the works if anyone was.

Things happening in my life: I am graduating from college in May, have not found a job, and am generally an even greater giant ball of anxiety than I usually am. I assume that comes across in my poetry. I don't know. I'm getting by, anyway, and school at the very least seems very very routine and un-challenging. I have a presentation to give on my capstone project ("Writing About Art: Making the Unseen Seen") on April 26. That's exciting.

At any rate, it all has very little to do with my existence here, and I usually don't bore you guys with the details of my uninteresting and so very irrelevant life. How is everyone out there? Still ticking and waiting for spring, or happily in the bliss of a place that is already warm? Stressed out? Not stressed out?  Tell me all the things, guys.

Your science-fiction afflicted friend, 


(P.S. - I think the deviantart April fool's thing, thoughtArt or whatever, is a fun little thing, if perhaps not as dramatic as some of the tricks they've played before.)
