"If all you have is an idea, a pen, and a notebook, write it down. First drafts are always going to be shit anyway. Write your second draft down in pen too if needs be. When you get to the third draft, maybe on computer, you should be figuring out…"

Part of Her

I seen her from a distance; just the back of her, but I knew her shape, her mannerisms. I ran, calling her name.She turned and smiled, threw her arms around me as she wondered how long it had been.We ate and drank in the plazas, sunset blazing off the villas, before she took me back to her apartment, where we kissed. Partly masticated food passed into my mouth from hers, but I was so infatuated, so excited, I didn't care. I swallowed, wanting all the dirty parts of her. They were chewy, like…See More

Talk

There’s talk of nothing in particular. Young men quote Jack Black in School of Rock like it’s a new thing.There’s talk of a room available somewhere. The old landlady would like the company.There’s talk about a resolution to the civil war – but that’s ephemeral, taboo.There’s talk of what to do over afternoon cider. One says it’s too early and orders coffee – black.There’s talk of football and talk of cars: about engine size and torque and the best paint-job ever.There’s talk that is all but…See More

Two More Moons

It’s just as dull and dusty as this potato.‘Keep your voice down. You’ll hurt its feelings.’Kane has a soft spot for Ceres, or, more accurately, for the view of Jupiter from there.We were assigned to the first manned mission to Europa, five years from now. So here we are, back on Phobos with the grinning Mars above us, spinning…See More

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…
