Nice move___. Say something such as, You think that one was bad? Be safe. See the world with an outlook and regularly try to transform situations into anecdotes Sex Dating in your mind. Don't let him know your motivation. I mean when I met my hubby online, here's what I wrote to him: I like meat, sports and beer. Don't go out every day. Let them get used to you not being there for them at all times. You might be a little nervous (that's fine) -- just don't go on and on about underwater basket weaving without letting your date respond. That means not saying, Eh, she's cute - but I prefer brunettes to blondes. Don't act dumb. Sometimes it's a little difficult to go on a date when all she does is smile and toss her hair).

Finding the Right Code

I have a mathematical mind. I’m the guy who can split the check evenly at a restaurant without pen and paper. So when I started to read theory to better my writing, many of the concepts didn’t make sense at first. I had difficulty grasping the abstract sense of the sublime and the sensation it [...]

From the Attic: The Nest

From A Widow’s Story: A Memoir, by Joyce Carol Oates   In this baldly honest essay, Joyce Carol Oates seems to not want to glamorize or glorify her “posthumous life,” or her new life as a widow. With journalistic integrity, she seeks merely to detail the changes in a career writer’s day-to-day—and night-to-night—existence after a husband of forty years has [...]

Restart or Continue?

Video games are a guilty pleasure of mine. The more elaborate, the better. I mostly prefer role-playing games, those that allow players to customize a cast of unique characters and guide them through adventures in intricate worlds. I’ll admit my gaming hobby (or habit) has sometimes taken time from more creative pursuits, but the reason [...]

From the Attic: What’s Good for the Gander, Is Good for Us

“The Breeze” and “The Posture of the Trees” by Coral Bracho, translated by Forrest Gander   I like to think that despite language barriers, beauty is beauty.

Wild Rice and Sea Shells: Image and Individuality

As poets and writers, we like to think we are inherently creative and individual, that we can conjure up ‘fresh images’ and new ways to see the world that no one has thought of. Or at least we think this is how we are supposed to feel. But let’s be honest: the harder we work [...]

From the Attic: Close to Home

“Safekeeping” by Janie Hubschman   Parents bring children into a world full of dangers both small and large. Sometimes the dangers prove to be closer to home than one would like to think, like in Janis Hubschman’s story “Safekeeping,” from issue 8. —Chelsea Lane Campbell, Fiction Editor

Imitation and Neuroses: A Complicated Relationship

Imitation seems (at least to me) to be a fear of writers I know, or at the very least, it’s a concern of mine. A friend, who’s working on a novel, claimed that he “stole” a commonly used and easily-read-over device of a popular literary writer. He hoped that he would  never be “called out [...]

From the Attic: You Cannot Know Yourself, but Someone Else Eventually Will

“Fernando Pessoa in Macau” by Emily Stone    Fernando Pessoa often wrote under the guise of several psychologically and stylistically distinct personas, and these heteronyms have long been the focus of the conversation surrounding his work. But Emily Stone is interested in the man or, more accurately, the man-as-cypher in this poem from issue 19. Stone [...]
