Daily Deviations:
The MachineI. Terric struggled to keep his eyes focused on the board, his head threatening to fall onto his desk if his arm ceased holding it up. He checked his watch. It ticked away, sleepily, and he found himself mesmerized by its exposed, moving gears. It had once belonged to his father; his mind floated back to childhood memories. History class was boring. Pointless. Every year the material was the same. The teen adjusted his round spectacles as he feigned watching the teacher, his thoughts elsewhere.
Galactic History, they said, was now too expansive for mere students to grasp, so the public schools now settled to regurgitate the story of the Harmonian colonies. The solar system of Harmonia was discovered by a team of heroic adventurers in 3027, and colonized by the countries of the planet Earth as a diplomatic gesture after their fifth world war, and the very diplomatic and peaceful and benevolent Interplanetary Fleet governs the colonies... etcetera, etcetera. It felt more like propaganda

Daily Lit Deviations:
i saw stars in your eyesi saw stars in your eyes:
and on your lips i found
the heavens, the
infinite expansion of
a cosmos in your lungs,
lush on your breath as it
my blood in a spiral,
the grand clockwork of
the milky way -- alive
at your touch, at the
taste of your fingertips.
moving in rythym as  
the tide shaking an ocean of stars:
a wave crashing down on
the sands of neptune's far shore,
a comet aflame streaks across
the night sky -- sighing softly,
our arms entwined in wonder,
a salty sea on our tongues.
we held each other,
we felt a planet in
revolution around us:
a sun in supernova,
blazing, burning from a
million light-years

Life Update

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 20, 2014, 3:41 PM

Hello all! As I mentioned previously, I'm not in any fiction classes this semester, so work has been slow. However, I've been chipping away at some poetry and I've been working on an autobiographical project. Would anyone be interested in that? I hope so.

I've been very busy lately with college work. I have five classes this semester, and the workload is fairly intense. I've decided to change my major to Psychology, and so I'm especially trying to get good grades in my psych class this semester. I'm also probably transferring schools. So, I have a lot going on lately.

Hope all is well!

About Me

I'm Elliot! I'm a speculative fiction writer. I'm eighteen years old, a Ravenclaw, and I'm a student at the creative writing program at Purchase College. I live on eastern Long Island, NY with my three cats. I particularly like hard science fiction and dark fantasy. I'm pursuing a double major in psychology. And I love tea. :tea:

Some things I'm passionate about are gay rights and mental health advocacy -- both of which are issues that strike close to home. Feel free to ask me any questions. I'm a little shy, but I actually love to talk.
