The lucky life of a living brain

Here’s what I’ve learned about life (so far). ME: If it’s hard, it’s called LIVING. If it’s easy, it’s called LUCKY. Most lives are hard, that’s why this is a planet of LIVING BEINGS. MISTY’S BRAIN: The brain is made for thinking. Descartes had it right: “I think, therefore I am.” But where did that get him? Dying of pneumonia at the whims of a queen. He didn’t set a very good example for any brain to follow. It’s no surprise most brains take a different path, a safer path. A living brain is better than a thinking brain...

Flowers for the dead

I’m happy to announce that the second story in the “Fleur Du Mal” Series is out. Yay! It is called “FLEUR DES MORTS”, and as the title indicates – although it indicates it in French – it has to do with the world of the dead to some degree. I haven’t written many romance stories, the kind of stories that make you cry or wonder or ponder. But this one will make you do all of those things. And on top of it, it may even frighten you a little. So get ready to be startled, but don’t have...

The weight of water

The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is drink about a liter of water. Going 8 hours without water makes my mouth water. Are you for all waters? Before you answer, you should know that it doesn’t mean at all drinking lots of water, but rather being someone who’s a jack of all trades or a good all-round man/woman. Like a fish which can live in salt or fresh water. Which means that’s a good all-round fish, or a fish of all trades, or a fish of all waters. Anyway, after drinking water I...

Listen to your mentor

The first story of April is out!! Yay! It was about time I wrote a mentoring story, because, let’s face it, who doesn’t need some mentoring every once in a while, particularly when it comes to how to conduct yourself in a lawyer’s office. So, are you ready for “MY MENTOR”? I got the idea for this story in January when I was working on the story for the winner of my Sweepstakes. “The Bottom Line” and this story are sister stories, you might say. Thinking of “The Bottom Line” gave birth to “My Mentor”. It’s just an example...

Dante’s Bolge

Here’s a word that sounds like it means one thing but it means something very very different: MALEBOLGE. I can imagine what Malebolge makes you think of. I write erotica, so you can imagine what this word makes me think of: one of the most used words in my stories – along with its less protruding female counterpart. But I’m doing the MALEBOLGE a great disservice because MALEBOLGE is not just any male bulge. It is Dante’s malebolge, so to speak. He’d probably send me to one of the circles of the Inferno if he knew I was even...
