PIQUANT


dontravis.com blog post #303     Courtesy of PxHere Free Prints “Larry and Laura” is popular according to page hits, but not many of you contacted me with comments. Let’s try another short one this week. ***** PIQUANT           Sometimes vocabulary—you know, words—can get you into trouble.           Let me tell you what I mean. My name is Wylie, and I’m about as different from the other kids in my class as my name is from Robert or John. I guess you could say, I’m confused. Sometimes I see Helen Hagen practicing with the other cheerleaders and I get all steamy from looking at her curves and long blonde hair. You know, feeling weird down there and ashamed someone will see and hoping she does....

What Authors Need to Know About SEO


How To Ebook Mixtus Media – Blog  by Marcus dePaula Lately I’ve had people reach out to me saying, “I’ve been told I need to pay someone to help me with SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Can you help me with that? If not, do you have someone you could recommend?” Well I don’t really “do SEO,” but I am happy to help any website get better search rankings for free. It’s not as complicated as you might think: Use a website platform that handles Search Engine Optimization for you automatically (like  Squarespace ) and submit the website domain to Google and Bing for them to crawl and index.Use your website to share a steady and consistent stream of great content that naturally uses keywords in t...

Hope & Glory – Talk Like a Pirate!

251845
Ahoy, mateys! Today it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day, but I’d rather talk about pirates and other assorted ship-based scoundrels and adventurers. And because I am still promoting like hell my game Hope & Glory, why not give a look at piracy in the skies. After all, Hope & Glory is a game that features airships. And indeed, the scenario The Man that would be Quinn includes piracy in the sky lanes, the piracy in question being loosely based on South Cina Sea piracy. And Emilio Salgari. We’ve been there already, and you know the Tigers of Mompracem did have an influence on my game. But really, let’s talk about pirates and adventurers, and Hope & Glory. Somewhere, beyond the sea… In the Hope & Glory ...

Encountering Two Tigers


On Wednesdays, I share posts, fables, songs, poems, quotations, TEDx Talks, cartoons, and books that have inspired and motivated me on my writing journey. I hope these posts will give writers, artists, and other creatives a mid-week boost. When I first read the following Zen parable, I found the situation too difficult–even bizarre–to even imagine. It gives new meaning to the expression: “Embrace the present moment.” A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled, the tiger after him. Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge. The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, anoth...

Closer the Gestapo shoes squeaked


Joe grabbed her hand. “Let’s go!” he yelled, and together, they took off, the men’s moans coupled with low curses behind them, growing fainter by the second. He led her over to one of the small alcoves he had hesitated in front of before.  “This has to be the one,” he said. “Hold onto my belt.”  What seemed at first to be a dim little inlet, turned out to be a long, dark passageway, where the temperature chilled and a slightly foul o dor emerged. She followed him blindly, until he suddenly stopped short, and she rammed up against him. “What’s going on?” she asked. “We’ve run into a wall. But if it’s what they told me about, it’s good,” he said in a low voice. She inched up beside him and rea...

Writing


Busy writing a story at the moment: Philip Philps, also called PP is 66 years. He is a sober and sharp-minded man. PP is tall and sporty of nature. He has been a police officer all his life and he is now retired, criminal commissioner. He has worked in the “Yard” the last 15 years before he retired. He wanted to stop early to work, which many disagreed of, especially his good friend. The reason he stopped previously, was as he said is he wanted something more of the life than just his work, in spite of he loved it much. He has a little crush on the neighbor opposite the apartment facing the street; Mrs. Esther Dowling called Mrs. D colloquially. She participated in his clarifications on the ...
