Hey!! What's the story?

February 2014 Blog Posts (11)


The blood rushed through my veins as I trekked through the woods. I had to get rid of the lingering pain. I called for help, but my voice was no longer there. I wondered if anyone cared.

Was I alone in this darkness?

I searched for my soul through the tears. My hand shook as I held the knife to my wrist; veins bulging, heart racing.

Should I do it?

I felt myself drowning as I took a breath. I couldn’t let the demons win. I would return to the shadows once more.

Inner Editor and Me #1

Inner Editor (IE) and I are having fights about what directions my stories should take. Our latest convo:

Me: Sumthin's wrong w/ our story.
IE: Okay.
Me: C'mon, I need ur help!
IE: Ur right. *pulls gun* U distract it.

There's serious problems when an Inner Editor (IE) would rather hold your work at gunpoint.

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,…

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde hair fell over her face. Scarlet lips whispered to him,…
