Let's enjoy a bit 'o pondering.

Why do u love short stories? Maybe because they tend to be more concise & to the point than longer works? Well, perhaps are also helpful for those who do not usually have the patience to finish a more than 100 page fiction. Huhu!

This morning a friend of mine (Adila) sent me an e-mail (regarding short story writing & advice from a creative writing tutor) and I must here it is! *let us ponder this story*


While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 year old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times not realizing he was using a wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.When the child saw his father (with painful eyes) he asked, 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?' The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.

Devastated by his own actions - sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD'.

Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life & remember this: Things are to be used and people are to be loved.

The problem in today's world is that people are used while things are loved. Let's try always to keep this thought in mind: "Things are to be used. People are to be loved."

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny..

I hope u have a good day no matter what problems u may face it's the only day you'll have before it's over.

p/s: u can find a lot of sources for short stories here -

Dream dream dream!

"All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream!" - Edgar Allen Poe

Do u dream about horses? I know I do & seriously, this is my first time. I just had a horse dream last night! And it's a white horse.

It's early morning & it's beautiful, the weather is so amazing. In my dream, I was standing near ancient big tree. A horse came along side of me. I knew this horse & it knew me. As the horse brushed onlong side of me. I put my hand out & ran it alongside of it’s main, coat & tail. The horse was walk very slowly & started to walk away. I grabed it’s tail & spoke to it & told it to stop but it just looked back at me slowly pulling me along.
So I ran alongside of the horse grabed it’s main & mounted it bareback. This is what the horse wanted - it wanted to play to run!

Sight, sound, texture & everything was so very real. I have never had a dream this real that was possitive. Oh yes, as I mentioned I awoke from the dream very happy to have experienced it & frankly can’t seem to stop thinking about it! :-)
Well, its just a dream, u never know what if tommorow.. only God.

Sick Days - am still having em'

I'm using this "found time" with writing stuff I'm passionate about. Haha! Hmm.. So, what shall I write about? Hmm.. Oh ya, guess what?

I hate phlegm, flu & coughing. Hate it! Hate it! Hate it! I hate when starting to feel a miserable cold coming on.

I hate being sick .... I hate having the flu & I hate coughing.. hate colds..hate fever. *Well, nobody wants to get sick.* .. I feel awful & I can't stop coughing my head off. Last weekend, I cant sleep. I don't know what to do. Early in the afternoon, I've taken medicine & slept from 3pm ++ until 7.30pm. And it isn't helping & I am miserable. I ate tons of fruit & veggies & drank water & took my vitamins.

I have been unwell since last Monday (Dec 28th, 2009). Yep, that's right. The worst part of all, it's now Monday again. Haha! And I am still having flu & cough! If I want to get better, I know that I have to stay home & get all the rest I need. I just hope & pray that I'll get better soon. I have to, right?

When I try to breathe in it hurts & gets all itchy feeling. I feel like someone is sitting on my chest. Whatever it is, please get off, it is uncomfortable. I hate randomly waking up in the middle of the night with coughing fits. I hate that I've been coughing so much that my throat is raw & my sides hurt. I hate how it f***s with my voice & makes me sound like I'm crying.

Being all stuffed up, coughing your head off (or at least until u hope it falls off) & having a minor-soar throat is not fun in the slightest. I know that I may be a big baby complaining about this because other people have the flue to blah blah blah. But still.

On top of being sick I have to clean - clean the room, I need to clean my hamsters cage & get laundry done.! Well, I had plans, things I wanted to get done.

I kind of feel like going to bed, curl up in a ball, pull the covers over & act like a bigger baby. Sigh! I miss my pillows. But too bad... I almost forgot, I have to work. Haha! Alright folks, I need to get back to work.

Anyway, have a great & healthy day everyone! *Smile*
