This blog is dedicated to the craft of creative writing, elaborating on its elements in the process of enslaving them to mastery, breaking them down to move their parts and pieces around and reassemble them in a different order, to a different effect. All this with complete contempt for that absurd ensemble of ridiculous nonsense so often parading as writing advice. The faint of heart are warned. Welcomed are those kindred spirits who like their blood to be pumping and their ink to be flowing, splurging and splashing around with such reckless abandon that their pens transform into rafts on a most adventurous river. I wish them a rugged journey.
