some scraps

Was tearing my brain out last night trying to poem (or even better, write). But I was only met by half-formed, half-baked ideas.

Here's one a friend suggestions I should share:


it was not a stormy day
and so the wizard wafted
into town, an afterthought
that meant nothing
in the larger scheme of things
though he destroyed them all.


and since I've posted that one, here are two other fragments:

Beware the petty mage
that spare changes
the liqour store.


and


flares of fleeting life
dancing amidst the death
fairy mayflies, the fire elves.


I really want to do something with those fire elves. They came from this silly fantasy race name generator.

Thanks :D

It just felt too "easy" to me--cute, but without enough of a framework to support the idea.

But I have certain prejudices in that realm. :)

fragments are always expandable. Liking the middle one.

I like 'em all, but I especially like the middle one, too.

I'll try to work on that. I wasn't able to figure out the mage's story enough at the time.

Thanks :)

Thanks :)

I need to figure out more of the mage's story (and really, more of the world such that the setting makes some sort of sense). I was picturing a modern-day world, but was then stuck on what a powerful mage would be doing at a liquor store (versus ruling the world).

I loved the first one. Not the least because it has one of my favorite words: wafted LOL...fun with words, doesn't have to mean a twit

I love that word. As in "As I wafted up and down on my bedroom swing that night, growing sicker and fainter by the minute...." That's from a line in a book I'm reading right now. :)
