Expansion Joints, part 31: "Skip" / Flash Fearsday

Rhythm regulating universal order,
primal heartbeats'
standing vibrations creating organization,
manifesting beauty.
Skip? Fatal arrhythmia.


This is my entry for part 31 of the Expansion Joints Challenge and for this week's Flash Fearsday 140-character horror challenge.


  1. Magical, with a lot behind the curtain. As for doing the double, there's no holding you back, and you've got me feeling bad for splitting them this week.

  2. I don't have an email address for you, so I'll ask an off-topic question here. It's to do with this post, which was tied into Myth-Marked Merchandising and NetherWerks'/Garrisonjames' Worldboats project. There's going to be a pdf for the Worldboats, which I'm assuming will be free, and I'm happy for my posts to be included. That said, that particular project isn't my work only, in that it's your choice of words which was the framework for the post, and the words themselves appear of course. Would you be be willing to have the material in the post included in the pdf, in whatever form the material ends up after editing? There'll certainly be a reference to Myth-Marked Merchandising somewhere in the pdf, assuming the post isn't simply used as is.

  3. As far as I'm concerned, anything people write as a result of anything here labeled as structured writing exercises or writing prompts belongs to them and can be used as they see fit.

    I'm thrilled to hear that the Worldboats project is continuing to develop.

  4. Great news - I'll let them know. The hope is a pdf might stimulate interest and I can see the idea going further yet.
