“People hate… they hate what they don’t understand, they hate what they cannot comprehend, hell, they most often just hate what they plain out don’t like. We abuse, we lie, we cheat and we steal and we hurt one another in this damned world. It’s a hard truth but it is what it is, forgive as the Lord forgave you… suppose that’s the only choice you have… that or… vengeance.”

~Hart Grissom from The Relentless: Among the Willows

“You know what separetes an undead from a living creature? Undead can’t understand emotion, yet, I was able to stand up and fight for my dreams. You are still alive, you can still love and laugh, so if you truly feel sorry for what happened, then keep fighting, for the ones Who can no longer do so”
~Umbra, from Abyss King

If you need any more proof, then know that despite allowing it to rape, terrorise and come all over my cab, to top off the evening, it gave me a one star review. That review ended my perfect record. Can you believe it? One star, the nerve of some creatures. It didn’t even say why.

  • From Peep behind the curtain: Umbra driver

This pretty much captures the character and the story he was telling in a few sentences. It really brought the character to life for me.

The boy took a deep, hesitant breath before reading from the book. “See Dick. See Dick…” He faltered.
“Sound it out.”
“Rrr uuuu nnnn.” Bubby’s lips formed the letters. “Rrruuunnn. Run. See Dick run. Run, Dick, run.”
“Very good!” She leaned down to give him a quick hug. “Now read the next line.”
“See B-83,” Bubby read. “See B-83 lift his megablaster. Run, Dick, run.”

The Gardener’s feet were rooted in bad soil, with a bad upbringing, and his face was pale due to a lack of sunlight. His growth for compassion was limited, and his lending arm for kindness stretched only so far. The Gardener, unlike the others, was filled with hatred, unrooting more flowers than he had. With no reason, except blatant vanity,

I really don´t have a favorite quote. Sorry for how bad this is.

I have two main characters. Bobbi and Noah.

Bobbi’s peptalk after Noah felt down about being called a “monster” as an MMA fighter:

" My Noah is the single greatest Human being on this planet with the ability to transform his body into a goddamn force to be reckoned with, tricking others into thinking they’ve got the control without actually subjecting his mind to do the same. He’s a titan harboring the powers bestowed on him by the forces of the Universe and as the only person who knows everything about him, I’ve got the right to break his fucking neck if he ever forgets that again. Now, where is he?"

Mine is more from my life than my story, but it’s also about writing and any other form of action we can take to influence others:

Mine’s when the MC, an aphonic mute, starts to show her insecurities within one of the chapters:

“It truly was a shame that I was a music addict and knew all the lyrics to my songs in my never-ending playlists, yet could not be able to say one out loud.”

“Do you know what the clouds are called tonight.” She asked out of the blue.

“Fluffy?”

She giggled “Valentine’s dream. It’s supposed to represent what Valentine would have wanted with the world, he wanted the air to be filled with love and hope, that’s why they are pink.” She said staring into the sky, the clouds still glowed a bright taffy colour, but the silver bolts had subsided. “The Haze is God’s gift to Valentine, it is Valentine’s dream brought to us to give us hope. Some stories say that it gives certain people gifts from God to show he is there and he loves them. I don’t believe that, but I do believe that it gives hope.”
