Recruiting Artist/Photographer for Literary Collective

Hi everyone! I hope you are all in good spirits.

Me, Red-Bear-Sky, Pretty Words for Ugly Thoughts, and Words for Ghosts (all bloggers/writers here on WordPress.com) are starting a poetry/writing/art collective and are in need of an artist/photographer/graphic designer to help us stylize our biweekly online journal. I can provide further details if you are interested (varjakbaby11one@gmail.com). Commitment should be minimal, and we are all friendly lenient folks. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me at the address above.

Bonne Chance,

varjak

Resurrection, Warrior

I simultaneously feel like I’m dying and resurrecting

But the turnout for the show’s not great

I recurrently forget what I was th-h-h-h-inking.

High. Higher than Mount Everest (why is it spelled that way?)

Beyond the breeze

Gentle mist

Ahhh—the crest of your chest bounces

As demons take shape in the land

Never abandon

Never forget

Party on, warrior(!)

Income avenues for bloggers, writers, artists and other creatives — Little Fears

Jordan tweeted me today asking for some advice for a comic creator. I came back with a few suggestions, but one thing sticks in my head whenever creators, bloggers, writers, artists and even photographers ask me for advice. Aim to have multiple revenue streams. The problem with having one revenue stream is if it ever…

Anthropods: Mental Models

I sort of get infected by the nightmare of people

What I mean by that:

 

They, the people in my sphere, in my perception,

Come to life, on my inside, in my mind.

Doesn’t mean it’s authentic.

I have–my brain has–enough information to make a mental

Model of the person.

But it shies out of control. Tends to.

So, I “see” people doesn’t really adhere to canon.

They’re not really there–

Only, they are.

 

The modelling parameters are corrupt, when

Such “nightmare people versions” are instanced

In my mental model

So the people look nasty, or malicious, or what-have-you

There’s no web certificate of authenticity

There’s no SSL encryption

Just the barrier between inside and outside

So I see them:

The people I already see

On the outside, on the inside

 

I think I’ve explained it

Any ambiguity can be discussed in the comments section

Thank you for coming to my TED talk

More bad poems

I don’t like reading my own poetry


Because I can’t read

The art space is underutilized

People are choosing a depth-first algorithm

To explore it

Fault

Faulty ways

Not sure how to stop
