What is the purpose of life, I hear myself say,


The constant ups and downs we face everyday,


Some so lucky to be burden free,


Smiling from the inside, dancing through life happily


Others not so lucky, facing hurdles along the way,


Constantly waiting, for their brighter day,


Who is it that decides our fate? And decides who will thrive?


Who is it that decides who will struggle to survive?


Some of us make it, some of us don't,


Some of us will have the strength to fight, but some of us won't,


The divide seems to be so unfair,


When some are given no option  with the burdens they must bare,


Some say "life's what you make it", but is that really true?


When things you have no control over, are thrust upon you,


Are these burdens just a test? To see how well we cope,


Designed to make us stronger, and show us we have hope,


So many different beliefs that help us make it through the day,


Many choosing religion, and to a god they pray,


Some lives so cruel, other lives so kind,


Dictating how much impact this has, on our heart and mind,


So what really is the purpose of life? It's hard to understand,


Is it all mapped out for us? Or totally unplanned?

Hey guys! Check it out, but please ABSOLUTLEY NO EDITING HAS TAKEN PLACE!!!


I am only about 20% through the book, but I hate to waste my time on something people wont enjoy. I love my story so far, but I want others to as well. I have a thousand stories in my head, so if nobody loves this one, I will write another!

   "Folded Dreams, a follow-up novel to my venture into the world of self-publishing, managed to get to about 45% edit-worthy completion. I wasn't completely satisfied with my work at that point, but I was proud to have at least made it that far! And then, as often happens of course, I hit an annoying bout of writer's block - so I pouted for a few days, then decided I'd really show my Muse how childish an old fossil can get, and "cut off my nose just to spite my own face" - - Translation:  I  did what I believe a serious writer should never do for more than a few days at a time - I took a stupid vacation from writing. A couple of weeks should do it, I thought to myself. Just two weeks.


That was about the end of November or first of December, 2016.


   As fate would have it (or "Never Disrespect Your Muse"), on the 8th of December I had a pretty serious stroke. Not a "major stroke", mind (the kind that leaves one totally blind and unable to control one's bodily functions), but bad enough to have to start from scratch to re-develop the ability to walk and use the whole right side of my body, cough and spit toothpaste into a sink and the dexterity I needed to dress and to even simply keyboard.

   Writer's block just became very real and much more complicated than ever, indeed."

(Pearl Kirkby, aka:  The Old Fossil)


This started out as a forum post (because I know I can't possibly be the only writer to suffer this ) but it became far too long. So I have used it as a post on my OldFossilWrites author blog on WordPress (oldfossilwrites .wordpress. com). It's sort of an explanation of why, for the last 7 months, I've been absent on the CS forums and haven't followed up with the CS contributors whom I follow.

   I actually wanted to thank all of you CS contributors for taking such an inordinate amount of time to answer questions, seem indefatigueable in clarifying the same issues over and over and over again and, sometimes, show more than a little tough love to we who aspire to become published, successful authors.

Now here is the lyrics to the poem; one of the year's best new poem for you:


Waters of Silver Spring

Sweet waters of Silver Spring


Oh what soft soothing pleasure you bring,


To my eyes, my ears, my thirsty lips,


My tongue so long to taste your flowing delight.



While skin touches your smooth cascade,


Beneath the soft shadows of night.


Your slender arms hugs the neck of Athlone way over on the left,


Whilst George Town's high hills, caresses your breast.



Yet your cool clear water bubbles and constantly, your water flows


Where do you come from they asked, and where do you hasten to go?


No one has ever answered


Nobody seems to know



Young ladies fair washes their hair


Bending beneath your crystal flow


Shadowed curtain around them drawn


Be it at nightfall, or at early dawn



Chattering women washing their load


On rocks smooth surface by the side of the road


Valiant young men awaits their turn


Sits on the culvert's edge as they discover and as they learn



Just one short leg away from hip to toe


You burst up from the ground and hurries to go


By lush green trees while bending low


They salutes and bows, in reverence show



Sumptuous, refreshing, sugary sweet


Waters of my unassuming Silver Spring


You winds your way over rocks and river Moss all live long day


Until you pour out of your glad waters


Into the anxious jaws of Rio Sambre.


By;  E Lloyd Kelly (The-poet) I thank you.


Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedbacks on this

Does anyone else write anthologies or collections? I've recently published one, "The Lost Collection" and am working on another consisting mostly of short-stories inspired by online writing prompts. I hope to release "The Temporarily-Misplaced Collection" by the end of the year.

Predeterminism series is the first Science Prediction fictional books written. What is Science Prediction? Science Prediction is fictionalized literature of past or present universal events and theorized future events, however, explained with scientific theories and known scientific elements. In other words, a fictional story of any universal characteristics explained only through scientific facts or theories.

To simplify the meaning, a writer can create a story such as Harry Potter except, the author must explain how the spell works through science. So Harry cannot magically wave his wand and poof.

Instead, 'The circus fair's escaped helium causes friction mid swing through metallic particles in air as Harry's goat milk spell fills the vase. "Accio Milk!" Harry shouted.'

The story stays fictional, and the science is clearly an example. The purpose is to bring the division between nonfiction and fiction readers the what is known as, Science Prediction.

What is Science Prediction?

We are fortunate to live in a world of vast imaginations. Here in this world lives an infinite source of creative power. We can substantially envision our own destinies to manifest a creative work of artistry within vibrational, spiritual and emotional thoughts. We naturally are truly creative people, singers, poets, musicians, artists and so on. When such artists empower the compilation of great ideas over time, we come to piece together our stories which we are here on earth to demonstratively conclude and experience through one other. In today's world, these written tales can be composed of standard categories we can find in every modern bookstore.

Readers and authors alike fall into different classes or genres of literature based on categories and classification of the book. We tend to fall into these groups religiously. Until now, an authors writing dream come true in an original uncategorized philosophical style of composition which is rightfully entitled as, 'Science Prediction.

What is Science Prediction? The answer to this question is opening and uncomplicated. Science Prediction is composing literature based on the past, and present generational events that predict a future outcome determined through theorized scientific elements. When producing Science Prediction literature, the author attempts to capture their storylines by infusing them into our past and present reality, while utilizing scientific theory to implement the author's plot to create a future relative state of conscious life.

Science Prediction is correspondingly formulated by documenting past and present historical events within throughout the storylines to maintain the reader's conscious reality. By doing so, this allows the reader to develop the correlation between the events until the author's future scientific outcome transpires beyond the plot. This also keeps the reader from equating Science Prediction as fiction or other forms of known written literature genres.

The most important aspects of Science Prediction are a philosophical theory, theodicy, and mindfulness. The philosophical theory of Eternalism is the scientific basis of Science Prediction. Eternalism is the view that time resembles space and thus past, and future events are in some sense coexistent. With this explanation, the author must explain each of its laws Science governs to make a real storyline and theory. When an artist creates Science Prediction literature, he or she commits to a theorized summary of the life and universal existence based on scientific principalities towards developing plots of unforeseen future events.

In essence, Science Prediction is a breakthrough gateway to an author's ability to create a work of theoretical artistry literature, maintaining the reader's level of conscious reality beyond fairytale or folklore, inclusive with an elaborate and purposeful scientific foretelling. In other words, Science Prediction has more intellectual offerings than Science Fiction, Science non-fiction, fiction, time travel and alternative history, etc., or any other spiritual new age literature, that only allows the audience a modern and post-modern fictitious dictation.

We will be searching for several writers to draft a short story of 2,000- 2,500 words in the Science Prediction introduction book. If you would like to be considered in having your short story in the book, please contact me. We can have a in depth look into the new literature explanation and feature you as a writer in the first book. Send us your information and interest and we will contact you

Artistic Creativity

Posted by BLANCDRAGON Sep 24, 2016

Title development is extremely important. Nothing can kill interest like a "dull" title. Sometimes incorporating the title in the manuscript can be helpful, but sometimes a catchy creative illiterative title that conveys the spirit, or essence of the manuscript can be the best approach.

I'm currently working on a short story that is tentatively titled: "Big Time". It is about a group of rogue Operants in the U.S. Government fighting to bring down a "secret corrupt society" within the sociopolitical structure of the U.S. of A., the title is incorporated within the story. The manuscript delves into the most guarded aspects of Government and Society.

On the other hand, my first novel published through createspace, takes a different approach. It is titled: Tantric Voodoo. I chose this title because it conveys the 'spirit' or essence of the Novel. Always keep your minds open to new things, no contempt prior to investigation. Great things can come to the open mind.

Our world together has never been, and never will be at peace. In the short time I have walked this earth, i’ve learned a couple of things about the people surrounding me. How some may learn differently, see things differently, look at things differently. Though, one of the most important things I have learned about the people around me is that no matter your actions, nor words, never, will everyone be happy. Some people may disagree, some may agree. It’s a simple fact of life.

I’ve had my own experience with this idea when I was much younger. When I was arriving to my 1st year of elementary school I was as naive as any child. I thought for once in my young life, I could have the chance to be a big kid. I thought so fond of the fact that I was given more responsibility, I thought I could do anything. That year of 1st grade I made friends with most of my class. Going into that year, I wasn’t too experienced with people of different religions, or color. My family had always been supportive of everything. Remembering back to those years I could at least remember before, though, I was pretty much protected from the fact that there were bad things that happened in the world all the time. I was never told to expect hate from other people because of what I believed in, or what I looked like, or who i associated with.

During this year I met who I know now as a Muslim follower, my friend Muhammad. My friend at the time, Muhammad, was always so nice to me. I have always felt bad for him because of a disability that had tormented his life, that left him paralyzed from the waist down, leaving him, even as a first grader, in a motorized wheelchair. Being in a wheelchair, he was always left as an outcast to the rest of my class, and no one ever wanted to talk or play with him. Being the open spirit that I am, I decided to pursue a friendship with him. Muhammad’s personality was very outspoken. There isn’t much to say about his personality, except that he was usually grumpy or sad, due to having restrictions over what he could and couldn’t do like the rest of the kids. One day, however, my friendship with Muhammad halted unexpectedly, when he came to school that day with some bad news. Being Muslim, his faith of his family and him that he was taught speaks that Muslim’s can have no relations with Christian followers, and that as a Muslim he was supposed to execute me. Getting this news, Muhammad also informed me that his family did not want us talking anymore after he told them about me, and that he was also supposed to shoot me on stage as I get my diploma when I graduate my senior year of highschool. Getting this news that day, I thought, scarred me for life, though now I use it as a growing point of my understanding of people’s faiths and beliefs that are rightfully given to everyone as humans. This experience had completely opened my eyes to the world around me. Looking back on his perspective now, Muhammad completely obeyed his faith, his parents, and in his, and many other people’s minds, he did a service for his gathered community. In other’s minds, he did a disservice. This concept completely helps me to understand anyone’s point of view through thier eye's. Though I may not believe what was said or what was threatened was right, we both had faith for what we were taught to believe in, and we stuck with it.









(Please leave feedback! it really helps! thank you

Through The Eyes Of (Writing)    - Cameron Elgin -


(Prolouge) /(Disclaimer)


Many people treat life sometimes as a burden to themselves. They ask questions like, “Why am i here?” or “What is my purpose?” The burden of life itself in my mind or your own at times is like the lingering sense that you’re being watched. You can’t quite get rid of it, and it’s hard not to think about it either.

As a young teenager, my life hasn’t been much of a significance to anyone. I have my family, and my friends to observe beside me, people I just look up to even. Though, when it comes down to the truth, I must accept the fact that I can’t achieve much based on my current circumstances, and that goes for many people. Many people with a truly remarkable look on something or opinion of aren’t always given a chance to say what they want to say.

I wrote this book Through The Eyes Of as an example of everyone’s opinions in certain matters based on my own understanding and observation throughout my life. These perspectives may take on touchy topics in some people’s lives, political events, and even world understanding. I mean no disrespect to anyone. Throughout my life i’ve learned very much about people’s perspectives, whether they mean good or bad to you, I am here for you, the reader, to help shed some light to everyone, no matter what you believe in, who you are, what you do, or how you think. Please Enjoy.







(Please leave suggestions and/or if you like the idea of this! I'm very excited to start writing but I need feedback if anyone would actually read this! Thank you!)

Life isn't a option it's to a choice. Humans focus to much on what the next person is doing. Figuring out your purpose is the first step. Putting your passion over a paycheck, will open so many doors in your life. My book "Trials and Tribulations of a Hustler" will lead you in the right direction. It's important that we as people believe in something. Write down your goals and check them off one by one. Things will get greater later !!!
