Welcome to the Club

    where writer's-alike come together to share ideas and spread their knowledge and love of literature!

Authors-Club welcomes writers and non-writers alike. We aim to support you as you strive to achieve excellence.

You are invited and encouraged to join our cause: supporting and promoting the community's literary growth and knowledge. We welcome a variety of literature, from prose to poetry, fan fiction to fantasy, mystery to romance.

Everyone is allowed to join, whether you write or read! There are no limitations and membership requests are automatically accepted! Plus, we'll give you a llama badge.
Hey all! I just wanted to remind you guys about some submitting stuff!!

When it comes to the General Prose folder, this is for stories or writings that are set in real life time, or pertain to our current world we live in.

While sometimes we wind up getting submissions mistakenly placed in there that belong in another folder, we try to keep that folder just as a worse case scenario, couldn't possibly go into any other place.  So if we ask you to not submit to General Prose, it's because there's another folder that would be more appropriate.

Also, we do not move your submissions for you, since we get so many each day submitted incorrectly, so please take now and then to read the Folder Definitions now and then to re-familiarize yourself with where to submit.

That's about it! I hope you all are having a great year!

Week of Daily Deviations:
MorningMy patchy kettle sulkingly burns my coffee residue
fresh-hot from yesterday's muck.
I gratuitously choke on it,
easing smoke through my gullet
like that pervasive daily sun eases mulishly
lace snagged and uninvited;
slick into my newborn retinas.
I can see in the white, bleach-light of noon
we are sick of the birdsong;
the light shaking disappointed fists
while I sit, my bed-sweaty back braced against it:
I wheeze through my coffee and sit vigil.
Bedding coils in dormant patience for the night;
viper-nightmares snooze, folded in my sheets -
damply layered,
they awake only to my scent. My daytimes watch them,
my nighttimes are their reign.
I sleep alone, these days -
my covers feathered hell-fire,
pillows fattened with shame.
MercyI don't want to die.
No one does, I suppose. It's a natural human instinct to keep on living. But that doesn't stop the hands of fate. The hands that, as soon as their cold fingertips brush against your skin, you're gone.
The hands of the ones they call Angels.
They aren't real angels. Real angels don't exist. Just as God doesn't exist. There are no benevolent beings with crystalline white wings and halos burning with heavenly fire - there is no supreme existence sitting on a golden throne watching from above. Not anymore, at least. If they ever did exist then we killed them long ago and as punishment, the universe created the Angels that we know now.
It was an accident. As are most things these days. Three hundred and then some years ago, back when people still went to church and prayed to whatever deity they had conjured up in their minds, it happened. The stories say it was a joint effort of an elite handful of scientists gathered from around the world. They had meant well; s

Sorry to bug you all, but my submission "300 Mice" is still waiting to be let in. Did the group die? Or is my story not good enough? Feedback would help
