The Darkness

It’s a moonless night. The room is pitch black, illuminated only by the dim red light from the clock on the nightstand. Quinton lay asleep on his queen size bed. He looks peaceful resting on his back, head slightly turned to right, covered up to his waist by a single sheet. A loud knock at the door awakens him from a deep sleep. He looks at the clock. 3:03 am. He looks puzzled, wondering why someone would be knocking at his bedroom door this time of night. He stares at the door awaiting another knock. “Quinton” the voice behind the door says, sounding more like summon. He recognizes his roommate’s voice and says “Yea, come in.”

Don’t Always Get the Girl

I watch a lot of movies, it’s my favorite pastime as you may already know. I don’t only watch them, I study them. Usually in every movie, no matter the genre, there is a common theme.

I had great ideas. With them I was going to change the world, post by post. Unfortunately something terrible happened the next morning and all was lost. I woke up. It was all a dream. While the ideas were great and could still be used, like most dreams I couldn’t remember anything. All I walked away with was an image of me driving around in a parking lot.  Driving a car which had no battery and 2 flat tires, yet a smooth ride it was. Why this didn’t give away the fact I was dreaming, the world may never know. The fact that an Ashton Kutcher look-a-like mysteriously rose from the ground and helped me fix the car, somehow didn’t send any reds flags either. Anyway, since my creative process has been interrupted I should take this opportunity to update you with what’s happening in my world.
