Two Thousand Words Project


Two Thousand Words 2014:

"Two Thousand Words is an art and literature collaborative project, where artists and writers get to work together. Last round the writers went first and wrote up drafts and synopses, which the artists looked over and chose a project they wanted to create artwork for. This round however is going to be a reverse round. Meaning that now the artists are going to come up with their art first, and writers will choose something that inspires them to write an accompanying story or poem!"

See link for the latest update in Two Thousand Words!:…

Live-Love-Write has a new program designed to provide participants with somebody they can count on for help and readership. Participants will be assigned in pairs, and each member in a pair will tutor and critique the other, help with inspiration and writing, and participate in monthly projects and contests.

It seems strange doesn't it? the fact that doing the same thing every day, breeds someone to do things they shouldn't. It makes a person question life on the other side, tarnishing their good rep over something small and incoherent to their values and moral standards. This is a quandary, one that sits ever well inside my heart as I step softly from the pavement to the dirt.
These steps take me passed a few trees, this poses as odd to me. In a forest with only a few trees, it seems more like an orchard. A small one at that, but who cares really about such details.
Delicately, I pluck a small apple off of the tree. It is not round like the others. It is unique, and special. I refuse to eat it, so I simply place it in my backpack and continue. The apple bounces back and forth in my back and I realize it will bruise and be unimportant to me at that point. I reach into my bag and pull it out. I
7 deviants said A Walk around the Writer's BlockIt's not the street I usually go down, but for some reason, that day I turned down a different road.
The twisted black shadows of trees played like lattice work on the cobblestone floor. I didn’t bother looking back to see the other path; I was all too familiar with it already.
Besides, it lead to a house full of blank white pages and crumpled quill pens.
I didn’t want to deal with that right now. The whiteness reminded me of a gleaming teeth, faintly yellowed, juxtaposed next to black ink.
The ink were hollow, staring eye sockets, I imagined.
I shuddered at the thought.
The shadows playing on the ground suddenly struck me similar to a rib cage, but what did the coiling black bones protect?
A twinkling laugh, like the sparkling of stars made my vision rise from the ground. A lovely woman, dressed in a cream colored frock waved her greeting to me.
I felt myself turn rosy and gave her my greetings. She went on her way, doing her best not to laugh.
I couldn’t blame her.

hey fellow The Writers Meow members I finished the first part of my fiction series Symphony of Lute here is the overview you can get it on or those are the easiest downloads THANKS! 

The City of Lute faces its toughest time when their fearless ruler King Kendrick has an untimely death. His successor is his son Tabor although he does not have the experience or the heart that his father did, young Tabor takes the throne. Realizing that he cannot live up to his father’s name Tabor slips into a deep depression wishing he had King Kendrick’s guidance. A young girl, Leah from Lute has a special gift that she keeps hidden. A songstress like no other Leah has the ability to bellow out heart melting vocals that literally uplift nature. Whether she is singing to a lonely seed under a pile of dirt or performing for a forest Leah’s gifted voice makes flowers bloom, trees grow, grass sway, and revive dwindling pedals.

King Tabor and Leah path’s cross and Tabor uses his royal standing to force Leah into performing resurrection acts for him. He is willing to threaten, abuse, and even kill to get what he wants. Tabor counts on his top Lute soldier, Lex, to assist him however his goodwill may have another path for him.
