Teaser Tuesday: a drawing and some prompts!

Teaser Tuesday:

I am not superb at drawing anything, but I wanted to share my latest drawing with you. It was kind of frustrating trying to draw her, but I like how it turned out, in the end, considering that I am not an expert. However, I need to work on many areas including the lips, hair, and eyes. I think the nose is fine, though. 😛

Also, my amazing family and friends have been piling me with prompts including photo ones such as…

Short Story #16

You don’t mess with Marcus and get to live.

You don’t mess with his children and get to see the next daylight. You don’t mess with his wife and get to see the sunset from the Eiffel Tower. But most of all, MOST OF ALL, you don’t get to mess with Marcus da Díxon’s identical mirror image twin and get to breathe the next minute. Ray was the reason why his heart beats. The reason why he existed. When they were created, Ray was chosen as the automatic function between the two meaning that if Ray dies, then Marcus dies.

Ray had danger magnet stamped on his forehead and Marcus found himself trying to do the impossible: protect his twin at all cost in order to keep them both alive, something he recently failed miserably at, hence the reason he found himself in the seediest Parisian district known to the French searching for his missing twin, his heart beat growing fainter with every passing second.

*** I am still struggling to write. I don’t have writer’s block, but my focus is not on writing short stories at the moment. This is something I found while going through my flash drive. I kind of added a little bit to it, but that’s about all the writing I did. It’s a Science Fiction story, but I don’t think I’ll be completing this one. It was an experiment of sorts. ^^

Teaser Tuesday: magazine covers!

Teaser Tuesday:

Since my adorable muse is still on vacation, I am actually spending the free time doing creative stuff and I like where it’s heading. Today (technically, it’s evening now, but hey! It’s still Tuesday!), I share what I’ve been up to lately.

I’ve been playing around with colors and I’m no expert (as yet), but I am working on it. When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to have my own magazine, something I’m currently working on in my spare time.

This cover was done for a story that I’m supposed to be writing for a friend. The model is not mine and if she belongs to you, the reader/browser, let me know and I’ll take this down.

The da Díxons belongs to me and I’m building a fictional fashion empire around them.

 :

This one is the cover I might go with, but I ran out of color patience! I don’t like the green, but I’m too lazy to change it:

 :

As for this other one, I’ve never written Tom Cruise into any story of mine before (I used to write Michael Jackson fan fiction, though), so when my friend gave me this challenge to include my favorite celebrity in a story, I decide to go with TC as a businessman and use his birth name. I also give him a son… but the story is yet to be written. 

I had fun creating this magazine cover and the headlines!

So, I’m not writing, but at least I’m creating. Let me know what you think.

Do not blame God for the suffering

We’re witnessing death, murders, rapes etc. on a daily basis. We cry out for divine intervention, but it seems as if there is no one Up There to hear us. This may lead some people (even self-doubting Christians) to ask: if there is a God, why isn’t He doing anything to stop this madness?

Why?

Wickedness inhabits the earth. All these things are happening as a result of sin (Romans 3:23). We are slaves to sin (John 8:34; Romans 6:16). And once sin is present, disasters will always be prevalent.

Another thing to remember is that this world is not of God (John 18:36; Romans 12:2). The devil is the current ruler of this world hence the idol worshipping in the form of movie stars, singers, material things etc. Hence the poisonous atmosphere. He is warring with the Prince of Peace, but a time would come when his kingdom will crumble.

Satan is identified as the great deceiver in the Bible disguising himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). He has been a murderer from the beginning (John 8:44). He is responsible for contributing to the suffering on earth. For proof, look at what he did to Job and how he tried to get Jesus to bow down to him. What did Jesus do? He quoted scriptures to chase the devil away.

But a Judgment day is coming. A new world (Revelation 21:1) is coming where there is no more suffering, no more pain, no more killing and no more weather disasters.

So when you see these things happening, do not cast your blame upon God. Pray about it. Ask Him to help you understand. Ask Him to guide you through these dark times and if you need your sins forgiven, He is all ears (Romans 6:23; John 1:29).

The Urge Is Back

The urge is back…

… to dance with my sins

to have that one drink

to watch that X-rated flick

To wrongly think of the ways

I can use my friend Nick.

 :

In keeping with this week’s backsliding theme. As I said on Sundaywe as newborn babes are still not perfect. We still need to guard our tongue, we’re still going to make mistakes, and we’re still going to be tempted to revert back to an old sin or two. This is not an excuse, though. Call on the mighty name of Jesus whenever you feel like you’re backsliding. It works all the time.

March 13th: Silver screen

Take a quote from your favorite movie — there’s the title of your post. Now, write!

At the moment I’m watching Knight & Day so I’m going to randomly choose a quote by Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) and continue the story: They’ll tell you I’m mentally unstable and violent and dangerous and it will all sound very convincing.

It’s in the eyes

Nicole’s eyes widen as she regards her gorgeous date across the table. She let out a soft gasp, suddenly afraid of what this deranged man was about to do to her. “Are you going to kill me?”

“Oui,” he simply replies, cold silver-gray eyes wickedly sparkling in the candlelight.

Her eyes were now drawn to the red wine that was sloshing around in his glass due to him teasingly tilting the glass back and forth in his hand. An omen. She had to move, but her feet wouldn’t let her. She spies the waiter taking an order to another table and wonders how to get his attention.

“Don’t,” he warns. “Or you’d be dead before he comes over here.”

*** If you’ve read Loyalty then we can call this piece an extent of the work Jean-Pierre Papin actually does. He is a French hitman and I am so dang proud of creating a complex character of his kind.

LOYALTY

Short Story #15

Glassy green eyes met icy gray ones across the mahogany desk, the only thing separating the men and the thickening atmosphere in the small, but cramped room.

“This can only work one way,” the goon in the blue powder suit from behind the desk rose to his full height thinking that it would send a threat to the man still seated in the ugly plush green chair. The gray-eyed man didn’t flinch. He just sat there with a smirk on his stern, but handsome face that the goon wished he could wipe off with just a backhand slap, but he had heard things about this Monsieur. “You have to agree with my terms otherwise the deal is off.”

Jean-Pierre Papin sadistically smiles. “I work only for money. If you want loyalty, get a dog.”

“They say you are the best!”

“And I am the best, but I don’t work on your terms. I work on mine. If you think you can do the job better than me, then you have no need for my help.”
