  • Unapologetic Expression: A guest blog by Harlequin

    April 22, 2017 Articles, Guest Blog

    Today we have a guest blog from Harlequin, a big character in our writing community, Prose.

    Approaching a blank page is enough to make any writer trepidatious, especially when it has been some time since they faced the demon. A myriad of obstacles present themselves, each of them with their own unique quirks and challenging components. Plot, diction, character development and style become a web that can only be spun when every component takes as much …

  • Dr. Seuss & the Evolution of Reading by Katie Kapro

    February 25, 2017 Articles, Guest Blog, Prose Blog

    What is your first memory of reading?

    Mine is of Dr. Seuss; of lying in bed after reading Hop on Pop with my mom. It’s a memory of the ink-heavy paper beneath my fingertips. Of closing my eyes to fall asleep but being unable to get the rhythmic thump of syllables and vowels out of my head. I remember feeling like the book had somehow become a part of me, like it was a sunflower seed …

  • Prose meets horror author Shaun Hutson

    January 4, 2017 Articles, Featured, Interviews

    We’ve looked before at the wonderfully gory genre that was horror books in the 80s. For me, (@MannersCost) they were part of my childhood healing; and a means to learn my way linguistically around a stutter. I read piles of them. One of the most prolific British craftsmen of that era was Shaun Hutson, who wrote books such as Slugs (which was made into a film – link below), Spawn, Renegades and Deadhead. I am …

  • The Meaning of Life – A guest blog by Ashlye

    December 21, 2016 Featured, Guest Blog, Prose Blog

    We’re sitting on a balcony. The cool Los Angeles air is blowing. There’s warm tea to contrast the coolness of the early morning air, a few foods of choice and the two of us. Conversation flows freely as we broach the subject of LIFE. What a heavy topic, right? I know. You always wonder what the actual meaning of life is… or what our purpose is. Well, let me start by saying this:

    I believe that our purpose …

    Books Before You Die: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

    We continue with our regular feature within which we review the books that urged to read before we shuffle off our mortal coils. As always, there are no rules or regulations, just the prerequisite of a person’s emphatic belief that a book must be read before death takes us all. This one is one of the mainstays in the books-to-read category and has struck a chord with …

  • In Defense (Gasp!) of Drug Dealers – by Mark Olmsted

    December 12, 2016 Articles, Featured, Guest Blog, Monday Blogs

    Twice in my life, in separate decades, I lived off the proceeds of dispensing the elements of temporary physical euphoria.  Consenting adults came to me and I gave them a drug for which they handed me money. When I was a bartender, the drug was in legal, liquid form. I paid taxes on what I earned and could tell my mother was I did for a living.  Even though most of my regulars were alcoholics, …
