Word. 

“Envy is more than jealousy. It doesn’t simply covet what another has, it hates him for having it. Christoph hates Jhonen, not just for what he has, but for who he is in the eyes of others. Christoph’s envy drives him to unspeakable acts against those who would show him kindness. Can Christoph be saved from the darkness consuming him body and soul? And if so, what could be powerful enough to overcome the deadly sin of ENVY?”

-Envy.

About Envy: Envy was an excellent exploration into the nature of man and I have a new ten dollar word in my language arsenal: Schadenfreude! -Dawn Jayne

Five star reviews!

Lily & Luke

A pale light streamed in through the single window, giving sight to the particles of dust in the air. Lily sat still atop a desk, looking at her feet, dangling freely. Her dark hair fell over her face, hiding her grey eyes. Across the room, Luke said nothing, and only stared blankly back at her.

“I bet you’re thinking about what I’m thinking, aren’t you?” She said still looking at Luke through narrow eyes. “Try and guess.” She lifted her head and blew her bangs back over her forehead. “No matter what you say, I won’t let you go,” she said looking straight into his eyes.

He said nothing.

“We’ve been through so much,” she continued. “I know you say I may be too controlling. Too much for you to to manage. But you know what Luke? I love you. Don’t you understand that?” Her eyes stayed on his but he still had yet to speak. He didn’t even blink.

I’m the one that taught you to be this way. I’m the one who showed you how to be strong. I’m the one, who showed you how to stand up for yourself! When we met…you were…how can I say this? You were pretty weak.”

He glanced at her.

“A pushover. Now? Now it’s as if nothing can harm you.”

She squinted her eyes in frustration.

“What’s that look? Luke?”

She walked over to him, her arms folded. Continue reading

Seven Deadly Sins coming 2012 “Can not wait for this to be available. With so many great writer’s involved… its going to be one “HELL” of a read!”–an anxious reader. |m|

Way to bring the ruckus Mr. Penner!

Aspire No More: Upcoming wsip.The Stories, “Histories”. Envy. Obey.

Titles to my wips.

In The Stories, Histories...we find out the meaning of sacrifice, of love…and the price of war. The legends all have a story. They all have…Histories.

Envy. One of the seven deadly sins.

Jealousy.
Many men have lost all they had in vain attempts to acquire what others were given. Talents, wealth, the good-life.
If not only want what you have…but I want you to suffer.
“Envy is sorrow for anothers good.”–Thomas Aquinas
noun-a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to anothers advantages, success, possessions, etc.

From the story: Across the Aegean Sea, through the ice crags of Nortendur, past the land of the desolate wind and deep  into the land known locally as Vale, one of the seven deadly sins searches, cries out in thirst…and in this tale…

Envy finds a new host.

Obey.

The Word beckons you to honor, to take heed to the words of your mother. To the discipline of your father. Some people just don’t care.

Sounds of untold dread and despair overtook the small room. He let out cries of pain and torment…He tried to escape but there was no escape. It was too late. They’ve come for him.

Not to mention two interviews for AmyBeth Fredricksen, a fellow Writer and Friend. Very in depth. The second interview goes to Tamara Mousner, very special writer with a very special sense of greatness :}.

The Stories:Book One is on a mission.

I am gearing up for the destiny that is anxiously waiting on me.

We have to be different if we ever hope to make a difference.

Be blessed.


Seven Writers. Seven Voices. Seven Stories.

I think this is going…I know this is going to be #Epic.

The above was written by Michelle Picarella. What does all this mean? It means an epic collaboration. It means Seven different Writers. Seven different voices. Seven minds. From all around doing what we love to do.

Okay so what’s the big announcement? you ask with a sneer. THIS: We, The Seven will be unleashing our compendium, tentatively titled The Seven Deadly Sins, the brain-child of Michelle.  I am very excited to be a part of this. We all “met” on Twitter. SEE? It’s still proving to be a terrific place for networking and building relationships and networks. I digress and return to The Seven. Continue reading
