December thought generally not a good month for me, has been particularly good this year. Infact, bad things also happened, but the minor bad things too over the awesome parts of the day, like the excitement of writing something weird, funny, crazy, WTF, totally insane at the end of the day. That excitement kept me going, whether I was in mood to write, whether I had had a fight with someone, or maybe I didn't have a good day at office, I knew that one thing in my control was writing a story. Heck, I could be using this time to write a story, but I am listneing to Pearl Jam and writing things which do not make much sense to me. I am tired. I am not even going to revise whatever shit I am writing, i'm just going to post it as such. I think I'll grab some winks now but before I go,
A Very Happy and Prosperous New Year to you from Me, N and the blog too. So, that's like triple best wishes. Me, my alter ego and the blog. Which other blog gives you that? None.
And on a side note, may you get drunk like you've never gotten drunk before, may you get laid like the last person on planet earth, may your drugs be good, and your partners faithful, may the cops ignore you when you break traffic rules, may you win a lottery and if not that may you find money on the street, may the people you like start to love you more than you love them, may the good things come to you slowly, so that you can learn to appreciate them, may your fights be tough, so that the victories are sweet, may your heart be strong, like a Dragon's, full of fire and energy.

What was his name? Sandman something.
He was always sleepy I guess. I couldn't see the hot babe with him. She was there in the movie right?
Then, this guy showed me his palms, just like the movie, there was a red pill and a blue pill on his palms.
Ah, i know what happens now!
"What will you choose?" he asked me, "the red pill or the blue pill?"
And at that moment I could not remember which pill Neo chose?
So, I ate them both. The bald dude shook his head and smacked his palm on his forehead.
The pills tasted funny.
No other movie gets as cool as Matrix. Seriously. That one was epicness redefined and nothing will ever be as cool as that.

mistakes should be taken for granted.
So, things have been pretty lazy here at this blog. Part of this comes
from my life changing somewhat in respect of getting a job, and part
of it comes from a desire to make this whole effort of writing stories
something bigger. There are few things in my life that give me as much
joy and satisfaction as writing but day by day it gets tougher to
bring the semi solid ideas into concrete form on the blog or on paper.
I mean when you've been doing something for lil over 4 years there has
to be some kind of stagnation in it. So i try to keep things spiced up
here, but how long can one do that too? People, readers, friends are
demanding. They want slick takes with razor sharp editing, sexy
charactors, thought bombs, violence, dramatic endings and what not.
Can't please them all. And the intention isn't so either. Why i write
is because it gives me pleasure to do so. There is a definitive kick
in wrapping up a story with a kick ass ending.
This rant probably isn't leading up to anywhere. I'm distracted as i
watch words form on this small screen and i think i'll hit send now,
before i say more stupid things.
Next up- a three past story which is going to be crazy as a bucketful

I wrote the story just under the deadline.
It is called "Everyone Is Dying"
Clicky Clicky ^^^^
I have three more stories written on the same theme. More gory, blood, love, madness and all kinds of profound weird shit. Will put them up here once the results of that contest are announced :)

There, the think pip for new year.
Along with wishing you all, the point of this post is to tell you about a pretty brilliantly amazing contest, that is not held by me, but by the very talented and highly organized Mr Jason Evans at his blog Clarity of Night. The latest one is called "Ascension" Short Fiction Contest, it is pretty simple but winning it is tough (for me at least, maybe you can impress the judges there with your writing skills.).
It goes like this, you look at the picture given on the blog for inspiration, think up a 250 word story based on that, (you can do poems too, if they relate to the picture, though few poems were submitted in the past contests, still it's good to see rhyme crimes). Send the story to Jason at his email address given in the rules page of the blog.
And if your story comes on top, there are prizes in monies!
$50 as the top prize and several others.
My tips for writing the story
>Keep it short
>Keep it entertaining
>Don't bribe Jason
>read the rules carefully on the Clarity of Night rules page
>check winners of previous contests for learning the things they did right
>your writing should show that it's written by you
That's all. Good luck if you choose to write a story, if not, visit the blog, there are some talented and kickass submissions there every contests.
More fubar stories coming up for 2009 on A Story A Day. Cheerz!
