Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task.

The rest is the madness of art."

Summer's Day, or Variations on Sonnet 18 by Howle reviews
Seem familiar? Shakespeare's "Shall I compare thee with a summer's day?" is a very familiar poem, so I don' blame you. This piece is a varation on the famous sonnet.

Isn't there anyone who knows what xmas is about?
Not the actual title. I don't have a title at this point. Short story about a young and vaguely affluent couple getting their Christmas shopping done. Also, a scathing indictment of consumerism. Shabam.

Chapters reviews
For "Prometheus & His Liver." Not necessarily in the right order/complete or anything. They seemed longer than the "sketches" so I thought I'd take a leap and call them "chapters."

For a story I'm working on. This is all I have at this point, it's currently titled "Prometheus & His Liver." Criticism needed, general comments considered.

The Lotus Eaters pt I reviews
Title derived from the Odyssey. I've basically given up on the other story I was writing. Forgive me if I borrow from it for this one. This is a bit more of a well-developed and realistic story I've been working on. I like it more.

Summer Ruptured pt II reviews
Not really "chapter 2," but "part 2." I'm pretty confident where I'm going with this now, but I still plan on changing/editing/adding to most of it as I go along. I rated it highly because there are some racial epithets.
