10:29 am - Looking for writers!
x_windansea_x I'm looking for good writers who can (for pay) take a fiction outline in prose and expand it into a polished, ready to print chapter. The genre is adventure with some erotica. I have an example of such an outline together with character/situation explanations on my profile at x_windansea_x. If you are such a writer who can and wants to work on something like this, please message me! Thank you.

1claimserr Терапевт может прибегнуть к данной директиве, чтобы облегчить клиенту открытие того, что кажущаяся ему “плохой” часть индивидуальности, в действительности оказывается целесообразной, а в некоторых случаях — необыкновенно полезной. Изменяя перспективу, клиент учится тому, что и плохое может оказаться хорошим”.
Первая рекомендация заключается в следующем: пациент должен составить список различных частей собственной индивидуальности, которые каким-то образом связаны с его проблемами. Затем он отмечает, какие позиции он считает — исходя из собственной системы отношений — заболевание почек , диета , гинекология , здоровый образ жизни инфекционные болезни , лечение болезней , кардиология , желудок “хорошими”, а какие “плохими”. В третьей части задания пациент вместе с терапевтом решают, на какие из плохих частей нацелены определенные шаблоны поведения, с помощью которых клиент пытается отбросить нежелательные элементы. В-четвертых, клиент должен постараться отыскать их вероятные позитивы. В чем они могут оказаться ему полезными? Какие силы и ценности они представляют? Наконец, клиента просят назвать контексты, в которых эти “плохие части” оказываются полезными, и определить, в чем заключается ожидаемая от них польза.

1:42 am - Blues4Kali- A Cult Classic for the End Times


What will Winter Solstice bring in 2012?
...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia?
These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!

4:05 pm - Human sexuality and Religion

'Human Sexuality and Religion: reframing the problem' is the working title of my new project. Human sexuality and religion are like siblings with a love hate relationship. They are very similar in many ways ( I have always believed that the part in our inner selves which provides shelter for our religious emotions - our desire to worship something - is the same location where our sexuality lives). At the same time there is always tension between these two (perhaps not unlike the tension between family members living together) My interest in this project is in how we should understand this on-going problem between the siblings - human sexuality and religion. Now religious narratives on human sexuality (as indeed - thanks to Michel Foucault's insights - the medical/scientific narratives) claim to be presenting an objective statement of the reality about human sexuality. From this vantage point the problem over human sexuality and religion is about articulating the reality about sex. I will spend a considerable amount of time and space on how this way of framing the problem tends to unfold and to demonstrate why it leads to entrenchment of conflicting positions with no resolution in sight. What I will be arguing for is a re-framing or understanding of the problem in terms of construction rather than articulation. In other words discourse on human-sexuality (religious, medical, scientific etc) is not about articulating the objective reality of human sexuality (an attempt that assumes the existence of human sexuality in itself i.e. an essential human sexuality), it is rather an attempt to construct that reality from a wide range of discursive contexts. I will try to demonstrate how re-framing the problem thus might enable us to get over some of the ugly fights over sexuality and religion

11:08 pm - My.America - A Scripted Documentary For The People And By The People
stffdop Hello,

My name is Christopher Brieger and I am the producer and co-founder for a small organization in Charlotte, NC known as Stranger than Fiction Films. Stranger than Fiction Films is an independent film company dedicated to producing, promoting, and enhancing art. I wanted to take this opportunity to contact you regarding our upcoming documentary project. I have included at the bottom of this email the outline details of this upcoming project, and I would appreciate any assistance that yourself, your staff, your associates, or anyone you know might be able to offer. We believe that through getting the word out through a simple grass roots approach, we will truly be able to capture the spirit of this project. I thank you very much for any assistance you might be able to offer. I thank you very much for your time, attention, and support in this venture. Thank you!

Christopher Brieger
Stranger than Fiction Films
Charlotte, NC
“We Don’t Talk About Making Movies, We Make Them”

The project is called “My.America”. It will be a feature length film/documentary consisting of people talking about, their America. Our hope is to present the hope, despair, and realism that people have regarding America. Participants will submit essays to Stranger than Fiction Films during the submission period, and those chosen will deliver their essay on film on Sunday, August 28, 2005. All written work must be performed by the writer.

Topics, Age, and Miscellaneous
There is no way to answer what is acceptable for this category. Stranger than Fiction Films writer, Jeremy Ordan, has written an essay about his panic attack at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial while others have written about their love of the country or the ‘war on terror’. We are leaving the topics completely up to the writer. There is no message so left wing, right wing, or moderate that will not be considered. There is no age requirement for submissions, but all written work must be the product of the actor performing the role. We would love to have a four-year-old talk about the future state of America regarding social security fears for their retirement futures, but what are the odds a four-year-old is going to have those thoughts? Parents, please allow your children to submit their own work. That being said, we will emphasize once again, there are no age restrictions on this project.

The all important credit issue. The writer credit to this project will be listed in alphabetical order by all individuals who have been selected by the selection committee. The actor credit to this project will be listed identically to the writer credit. There are no exceptions to these terms.

Submission Dates and Terms
Between July 12, 2005 and August 12, 2005 Stranger than Fiction Films will accept essays from people about their America, and by August 16th all decisions will be made. Announcements will be made via email and through Stranger than Fiction Films Website: STFFilms.com. All submissions must be submitted in either an email format or as an email attachment (MS Word ONLY) to My.America@STFFilms.com. Any entries received past the due date will not be accepted. All submissions should have time between (minimum) 5 seconds and (maximum) 5 minutes. Any submissions below or above this will not be accepted. Headshots and readings will not be accepted, nor will resumes. America is a diverse country and we will not accept experience or looks into consideration, just the written word. We understand that not everyone uses proper grammar in writing, but we ask that your submission is clear, coherent, and free of as many typos as possible. Spell check is a necessity in life (therefore, I apologize for any typos in this announcement). Submissions should follow the following outline for consideration:
Location (city, state):
Contact (phone)/(email):
All submissions will be the legal property of the writer but usage of the performance and work will be granted to STFFilms. More information regarding usage will be released upon selection. All writers must agree to perform their essay on August 28, 2005.a reading

Selection Committee
A selection committee of seven individuals in the Stranger than Fiction Films community has been selected to choose the essays that will be accepted for this project.

Due to the nature of this project, there is no upfront payment for this project. Payment terms on a back end agreement will be released upon selection of individuals.

Final Miscellaneous
Finally, all the little things that are always forgotten until the posts go up and the emails come. This project is the product of Stranger than Fiction Films. If you are unable to submit your essay by the due date, then we are sorry, but no exceptions will be made, and your submission will not be considered. If you are unable to have your reading filmed on the film date, then we are sorry, but your submission will not be considered. This is a project of passion, commitment, and enthusiasm, we want to enrich the local Charlotte-Metro area as much as possible with homemade art, but we all have deadlines. Thank you very much for your interest!

Feel free to ask any questions or submit any comments to Jeremy Ordan at Jeremy.Ordan@STFFilms.com. Thank you so much!

10:35 am - New Community

Announcing a new community novelnovelbits. Come, have a look. It should be fun and entertaining, if not to write, then at least to read.

The rules of the game:
1. Please submit three consecutive sentences excerpted from a nonexistent novel. Then provide a title.
2. Don't be shy--give it a shot. All genres and styles are welcome. These submissions are not being judged or graded, although comments are welcome.
3. You may submit as many excerpts as you wish, but each excerpt is strictly limited to three sentences. No exceptions [N.B.: one of the earliest entries does not conform to this rule; this submission, however, was created in the early stages of the concept and is therefore exempt from this last stipulation]!
4. Have fun!

6:58 pm - The growth of Evil!

Hi I wasn’t sure if this is dead so I thought I’d poke it with the preverbal stick and see if it moved!

The growth of Evil!

With the cries of one thousand fallen champions wringing in the stagnant air the mist closed in around Versus, her body growing shadowy and indistinct in the rolling fog. Slowly it took her, consuming her form, tearing at her soul, her flesh and finally her essence till her whole existence was plunged into a black despair. Having completed its hunt the mist parted in a wave of silence as the last ray of sunlight died on the horizon.
Purity got to his feet unbelieving. He stepped slowly forward and on the dark earth at his feet lay her sword like the grave of a lost soul. No other trace of her could be found among the trees and bushes. He knelt and grasped the sword in a shaking hand, feeling her familiar presence, so close and yet so distant. He felt her calling to him in despair like a voice on the edge of hearing.

current mood: curious

11:41 pm - Coming of Despair.

Everything has its owner and with musical bowstring plucked, the percussional thump of arrowhead prick piercing into furred flesh, Purity was tainted... Despair would claim him now.

He trotted back to Versus' side as she cocked her head further back towards the Groves of Destitution, where the sky bled orange as the day died.

"Aren't we going to eat it?" said Purity as he turned to pad backwards, watching the cooling body with more than a touch of pride.

"Do we ever?" a pause as she let that eyebrow creep high once more "You hungry?"

"Am I ever?" as Purity hefted his white quiver higher up a pale shoulder and he released another round of chuckling; his every breath wafting scents the color of air, too subtle for Versus fickle attention to grasp, too close for Purity to notice: thus, his leash... closing were the eyes of blackest night, the nihilism of Despair, splitting bush with steps on fog, so silent.

Versus of the sky stopped short suddenly; her arm chained Purity in his backwards step, knocking him from revelries. "Something in my skin has changed, I think I'm growing dry...." Purity questioned her with a look, then swept his gaze back over the woodland brush.... Versus knelt, washing the air with a sweep of her hand, glanced up at him, then turned her eyes towards the rolling fog with only a softly breathed "What the fuck?"

Purity raised a palm for quiet as the fog rolled passed then in a shape, like a stampede in diseased dark green... Versus jabbed Purity with the hilt of the Rose blade;

"What do you think--" before the words could pass Purity's lips, the fog jerked about in a change of course; like a viper, it struck, its eyeless head leaping from the soot as if Purity inhaled the taint-- it choked him, sending him reeling back as Versus charged forward with sword raised:

and there, with the black breeze forcing Purity to swallow and inhale, was left the woman with crying skin; her face caked with white powder that bleeds down her throat over spiny, pitch black skin; her flowered dress billowed at her beautifully slim ankles and her eyes, as black as the sky when the city eats its stars, were glass dry though tears had destroyed dollish make-up; they ate away at that second skin still.... Her peeling, smeared-red lips parted; her words on foul breath, meaning etched in yellow gas: "Why is all I love gone, stolen away?"

Versus could only blink.

5:02 am - Snowdrifts In Summertime

A long time ago in a far away land;

Purity and Versus were hunting in the woods. Purity of the waters and Versus of the sky met some time ago where two points make a perfect circle. All was quite peacefull in the Grove of Destitution, when suddenly Versus spied off in the distance slight sudden movements from the lights edge. Purity was on the trail, bound to put an arrow in something living and ignorant. Versus rushed ahead of Purity and lept up into the trees, bounding from branch to branch to discover this would-be infidel.
The creature moved swiftly enough, and Versus was working up a sweat. In a final attempt and with a sudden last splash of energy, her eyes fell upon the creature below. It was a prize indeed. The SorrowBeast stopped as well, glancing upwards toward the onlooker. It's face twitched slightly and a sly sneer crept to it's lips. Teeth bared, tongue lightly fingering those long, protruding canines, most likely used for ripping and tearing flesh and the lower intestines.
In a flash it was off, powerful hind legs bounding off into the oblivion that lay ahead. Purity on the move, rushing past Versus and gaining upon the beast. The beast felt Purity's presence and began to turn around. Talons digging into the moist earth and clawing backwards to face his stalker head on. Purity aware of the SorrowBeast's intentions was prepared. He stopped slowly and raised his bow. "The amazing thing..." He thought "All I have to do is let my fingers go..." And with that, the arrow was on it's way. It struck soundlessly, sinking deeply past flesh and into muscle and core.
A wailing beast was all to be heard. It's sound bellowed outward into the open air where it promptly reverberated through the surroundings. Versus slipping down upon the ground with a soft thud. Purity slowly lowering his bow, eyes transfixed upon the fallen pray; and he the carrion, murdering insolence.
"Well performed Purity...maybe next time you'll let me kill it. I know I got to bring death to the last 360 SorrowBeasts we came across, but I really wanted this one..." Versus arched her brow with a smirk and tossed her hair back, turning around and sauntering off toward the grove once more. Purity sighed softly, shaking his head as it lowered, eyes focusing upon the ground. Softly muttering to himself, "She's only lucky she has an ass that won't quit...really, really lucky." With one last deep breath he lifted his head up, brushed back the loose tendrils that seemingly make their home in front of his eyes, and with one final overlook of the slaughtered, a smile tilted his lips. "Damn I'm good..." And with a subtle chuckle back in his throat he meandered his way toward Versus.
