We writers have a vast array of tools at our disposal to craft stories readers will love. But like any tool, it helps if we know how to use it properly. Theme is wonderful. It can keep us plunging a story’s depths for years when used correctly. Applied incorrectly? It just makes a story annoying and preachy.

Description! Love me some description! But pile on too much and we can render a story unreadable.

The same can be said of prologues. Now, before we get into this, I want to make it clear that certain genres lend themselves to prologues. But even then, we are wise to make sure the prologue is serving the story.

So, to prologue or not to prologue? That is the question.

The problem with the prologue is it has kind of gotten a bad rap over the years, especially with agents. They generally hate them…

House martins in Sweden video

United States Trump presidency and homophobia

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA says about itself:

16 February 2016

Donald Trump admitted that he would appoint homophobic Supreme Court justices to overturn the landmark marriage equality ruling. Since Donald Trump wants to ban things he doesn’t like, we discuss things we want to ban that Donald Trump likes.

After Islamophobic and anti-Jewish hate crimes in Donald Trump’s USA, now homophobia.

From the Miami Herald in Florida, USA:

Son Sözü „Beni kadınlarım ve kızlarım bitirdi“ Diyen 39. Padişah Sultan Abdülmecid

Genç Yazarlar Kulübü

Sultan Abdülmecid, otuzbirinci padişah olarak Osmanlı tahtına çıktı. O’da ilk eğitimini sarayda almıştı. Babası II. Mahmud O’nun daha iyi yetişmesi için ayrı bir özen göstermişti. Bu yüzden Abdülmecid modern, Batılı bir prens gibi yetiştirilmişti. Fransızca’yı çok iyi öğrenmiş Avrupa’da yayınlanan birçok mecmuaya abone olmuş yeni çıkan kitapları da getirtmiştir. Batı musikisi ile yakından ilgilenmiş ve iyi bir piyanist olarak batı eserlerini çalmıştır. Bu kadar iyi yetiştirilmiş bir padişahın 25 karısı , 43 çocuğu var ve gayrimeşru çocuğu, torunları bulunmaktadır. Gelin hep beraber Sultan Abdülmecid’in şaşaalı hayatına bakalım neler var. Ne yaşadı da son sözü ‚Beni kadınlarım ve kızlarım bitirdi.‘ oldu.

II.Mahmud’un oğlu olan Sultan Abdülmecid tahta 1839’da, henüz on yedi yaşındayken çıkmış; 25 karısı ve 43 çocuğu olmuş, 22 sene saltanat sürmüş ve bu hızlı hayata 1861’de, 39 yaşında veda etmiştir.

But me

Life at 17

Life is in a mess,
Like gutter with wastes,
I feel so inadequate, so inadequate,
Self doubt and insecurities filling me up,
That’s when I see it blazing,
That bridge,
So big, so big,
But on fire,
The Bridge between my dreams and reality,
Extinguisher? Water?
No, nothing can put it off,
Hopelessness fueling it,
Fueling it continually,
No, no, no one can stop this fire,
No one but me,
But me…….

This poem is in response to:
