โ€˜Let Nothing Stop Youโ€™

Author Nicolas W King first started writing when he was thirteen years old. โ€˜And it was a bad X-Men fanfiction,โ€™ laughs the writer, beginning his interaction withย The Literary Juggernaut. Stating, nonetheless, that his first original story was a one-act play, which he gave to his theater teacher in high school, Nicholas, who works his day job in IT Support and tends to write at night, lets on with a smile, โ€˜She enjoyed it but could see I needed a lot more practice!โ€™

I Observe

His water brush draws
the mirror for the sky:
the vast lake beneath
captures the continuum
on its refractive surface
in deepening silence

My Imaginary Beach

Come join me on my imaginary beach
The night will be warm, the moon full
The sand will sparkle in Lunaโ€™s light
The calm ocean will set the rhythm
With waves lapping quietly upon the shore

Wish I Were With You

Oh, I wish I were with you up above
So we both might make love afresh each day
And pen grand sonnets that no man shall shove
Out of their dying yet unending way.

Everything About Direct and Indirect Speech

In spoken English, it would make little sense to report something using the direct speech. It would not just sound peculiar but also a bit theatrical for the listener. Therefore, another way to report is to use one’s own words and yet convey what the speaker had said. This does not mean that one can casually add words of one’s own choices for the essence of what was said should not be lost. This is exactly where the role of indirect speech comes into the picture. Indirect Speech is, hence, the second type of narration in English.

Winds and Ways

Oh, the birds greet mirth and mirth births love
When winds wind their ways through woods of this land;
And the days turn sound with the nights that shove
The light that brightens the homes that here stand.

Serial Killer Is a Jewel in the Ocean of Literature

The murder of a top detective is the tipping point in the entire story. The slayer, who has his own very special modus operandi, is smart enough to escape the nation (the United States of America) where he has committed several gruesome murders. He flees to Mexico, adopts a new identity, and assumes he will never be apprehended. On the other hand, the son of the murdered detective joins the famed Los Angeles Police Department, his sole goal being locating his dadโ€™s killer and giving him what he deserves โ€“ a body without a soul. But does the young detective obtain what he hankers for? Or is his plan foiled? Well, thatโ€™s the part that will make you read the book, right? So, weโ€™d better zip our lips for now!

When My Love Calls

When the night is blooming
In the realm of its own artistry,
A spec of moonlight
Dares to caress your charming face;
Almost instantly,
I stoop to plant a kiss
On your sleepy lips.
It’s that moment when my love callsโ€ฆ
A love that refuses to outgrow!

โ€˜If You Want To Do Something Well, You Have To Do It Regularly’

When asked if becoming an author was a conscious decision she made, Barbara, who is also a member of Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, says she was working as an actor, which gave her a lot of down time, and she needed an outlet to keep from worrying herself to death between jobs. โ€˜I have always loved reading, and I thought I would see if I could write a book. I mean, how hard could it be? It looks so easy! Well, it was not easy, but it kept me occupied. And I learned I prefer writing to acting, so I switched emphasis, which is good because as a woman of a certain age, my acting career was stalling out.โ€™

Bygone

Right here where tough deodars burgeoned for years
With blooming flower beds and brazened beasts,
I now behold concrete blocks with my peers
And swirls of dust rising upon tarred streets.

โ€˜You Are the Only One That Can Tell Your Storyโ€™

Conceding that she writes when an idea or inspiration strikes, implying thus that she does not have a calendar per se, Cat, who considers herself an eternal learner, tells us thatย Bosco and the Beesย is a work of love. โ€˜I have written, re-written, edited, teased, swapped and fused certain characters into each other. Itโ€™s been fun!โ€™ she explains. โ€˜It started as a fun idea when my kids were younger and becoming avid readers. Bosco is a young fairy searching for his lifeโ€™s path, something that speaks to his heart. Itโ€™s the kind of story I would have loved growing up,โ€™ adds the writer, who admits working on the book has required a lot more discipline and dedication than ever before.ย 

The Tag

He sits up and swings his legs off the slab, then looks back at that precious white face. Yes, she wants to stay. Maybe a little while longer wouldnโ€™t hurt, after all. Rising to his feet, he straightens his tie and buttons his cuffs before heading for the door. He stops abruptly, letting out a slight sigh and pulls the tag from his pocket. He replaces it around the cadaverโ€™s big toe and steps from the room, making his way down the corridor to his office. He picks up the telephone.

โ€˜Selling Is Soul-Crushing; But Who Else Is Going to Sling My Hash to the World?โ€™

Author Ann Wuehler admits she has not been writing as much as she normally does. Speaking toย The Literary Juggernautย in an exclusive interaction, the quinquagenarian, who is currently residing in Eastern Oregon, close to the Snake River and Hells Canyon, says she almost always sets herself on a schedule to break free of the general hopeless malaise coupled with impotent fury. โ€˜I try to start writing or doing something ‘writerly’, such as submissions, by nine every morning. I try to make it a habit,โ€™ she begins, adding that she has lately been wanting to write, which she asserts is a good sign. โ€˜I have stayed up late into the night writing at times, of course. Or jumped into it nearly as soon as I woke up, eager to continue. It depends. On mood, on time, on if the project is due or just something for me,โ€™ she explains.

The Knight Set Right

The knight that night with might set right
Each plight of men with tempers frayed;
The men then penned their thoughts then light
And journeyed to far lands as aides.

Communicating the Gaps

In the advertising world, marketing professionals often like to instruct or brief the creative department verbally. Although it is prevalent in agencies to submit a written brief, which runs into about 25 pages, verbal instructions are inevitable for managers, who might turn hostile to their words later. Marketing pros also frequently use their body language to express some ugly facts and figures about the project. And writers must read between the lines! However, those who write have to be specific while working on their projects. They should need clarity; to arrive at this clarity, they will need to ask questions to the marketing team.

Altered Mien

When Morning and Night met again that day
To greet the ocean of marred, frozen milk,
I bade adieu to Ball of Fire to bilk
The shadows that had wrecked my life, my stay.

A Dying Moment

Did dying moments stretch out like elastic, the final split second of your life protracting for longer than anyone could ever know? Heโ€™d learnt that male mosquitoes live for an average of ten days, yet their perception of time may allow for this short lifespan to feel to them like what we know as months. The smaller the animal, the faster its metabolic rate; the faster its metabolic rate, the slower the passage of time appears to them. Try to swat a fly and youโ€™ll have your proof. Heโ€™d even skimmed some papers hypothesising a possible solution of mankindโ€™s distant descendants to the eventual end of the universe: manipulation of their metabolisms to experience the final centuries of the cosmos as countless millennia.

To Dad, With Love

Yesterdays might have made you lose your might,
But bear in mind your will’s stronger than fore
Lots ’bout you I shall will to bring to light
So the world may learn you were meant to soar.
