*Exasperated Sighing from Admin*
It has been a long week my comrades. I don't know where you live, but here in Ohio USA it has been freezing (I am apologetic to those more north than I; it must be unbearable if it feels like a frozen hell here).

My girlfriend and I spent Valentine's together (freezing) as we saw 'The Seventh Son' and had a delightful meal out at a restaurant. How did you spend the holiday weekend?

Featured Artists of the Week
This week let's turn our attention to a chapter stories unfolding in our recent submissions (I'm sure you've noticed I'm a little biased towards general fiction & horror and non-chapter story entries... *shame*)

RUINS OF A COMING ERA: Chapter One

THE DOMINION, WINTER CAPITAL: VLENTON TELENS, JANUS 10th 500 A.I.A.

It was night and the city was littered with suits, blood and shells. Red, blue and pink were the new colours of what was once a lively city, which had now become the stage of a cruel war. The air which would normally carry the sound of working people and large tools was now carrying a thick, black smoke and small embers, there was no coming back from this.
Two armies fought each other, but it was undeniable which side would win. The wounded of the losing side were spread around the city and the faces of the fighters were grim with gloom and fatigue, their spirit would soon be broken soon. As victory became more and more likely the winning side fought with a sense of relief knowing all would be over soon. Some succumbed to panic and burst out in tears and screamed, while others longed for the end of this battle. It would likely take a lifetime before this city recovered. It was most clea
The Cows Are Coming: Part 1

It started with a phone call, one I’d been anxiously awaiting all through the monotony of the day’s work; sitting behind a desk, staring at the computer screen, never seeing. I couldn’t type, couldn’t write, heck, at times I could hardly speak such was the tension I felt. I couldn’t think past the phone sitting snugly in my left trouser pocket, willing it to ring and vibrate, to get an answer one way or another; for the torture to be over. Several times throughout the day my heart had stopped as I fumbled the phone to my ear, only to find that it hadn’t rung: perhaps my leg had twitched in sympathy at my plight.
Off went the synapses again, sending off thousands of little electrical signals to my poor excuse of a brain. The phone was vibrating. I was sure of it. My long fingers reached in to retrieve the device, being as quick as possible, all too aware that I could cut off the call. I felt si

Please don't feel ignored or worried if you haven't been featured yet. We read all that we can and try to be fair and at least avoid hosting the same people over and over again, but we can't possibly featured everyone. We'd like to, but then we'd basically just say "hey, go check out our gallery!" (which you should totally do anyway).

Thank you everyone for your submissions!

Reminder of Monthly Prompt
February is LOVE MONTH! It's also BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
So your prompts this month are;
1) Love can give you flight
2) No such thing as 'Love'
3) Black in Time
4) Historically Prominent Black People of History

Please make sure you are submitting these to the MONTHLY PROMPT FOLDER. Submitting your entry to either ROMANCE or HISTORICAL / NON-FICTION will not be considered an entry for the monthly prompt. We'll assume it's just being submitted like regular submissions because we aren't able to tell the immediate difference.


There's only 1 WEEK left to submit to the monthly prompt for February! I'm very happy to see plenty of entries in the admin log - keep it up!

Food for Thought
“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.” —Enid Bagnold

Thanks for being with us, we're looking forward to judging the monthly prompt next week! See you then!
