The music blasted at the same rhythm as Purdie Brett’s step against the earthy road. Whether it was to catch bugs and butterflies with his friends, or to forget that said friends had turned their backs on him for being gay, running in the leveled part of the wood behind the house had always been [...]
Garry Munster watched the flame dancing around the string of thirteen bulbs of garlic in the fireplace. Never moving his eyes from the burning plant, he poured himself a glass of bourbon and drank half of it. The liquid burned his throat, and he placed the glass on the little coffee table next to him. [...]
“Is it true?” Six-year-old Janie asked as she buried herself into her daddy Colin’s arm. “Is what true?” “That when you wish upon a star, all your wishes come true?” “As true as I’m in front of you.” Colin brushed her blonde hair. “How can you be sure?” Colin nuzzled in her neck and confided [...]
Leslie and Jamie tossed their backpack on the boat’s deck. “Dad, you there?” Leslie yelled. No one answered, but he was expecting that. Before he left for school, he made sure that his father wasn’t working this afternoon. It was the beginning of the school year, and the business was slower. His father – who [...]
Life’s full of surprise. It’s what’s make it worth living I guess. Things would be so flat, so boring if when you thought everything was going well, life didn’t punched you in the face and said ‘sorry, bud, but it ain’t over’. My life was finally going the way I wanted. I hadn’t talk to [...]
We live in a fairly new neighbourhood surrounded by nearly identical houses and lots of green. Technically, it’s supposed to be a nice traditional family suburb, but it’s just the banned of my boring existence. I’m Jeremy, sixteen and the only freaking gay kid in the area. My life is a mess, really. People like [...]
A new change of design (again), with a wonderful banner from Nathie at Creation Warrior. The design theme is based off Visual with some modification by me (like the addition of a header). I’ll make different color scheme in the future, but I hope you guys like it. MC Houle
“So doctor?” Matt ask with a playful grin. “What’s wrong with me?” “Well, um,” Greg started as he pretended to look at the chart, “the results of your last tests are indicating that you have a stomach ulcer.” “An ulcer?” Matt raised an eyebrow excessively. He didn’t know if he should laugh or cry. Here [...]
The well-dressed corporate lawyer held out the contract to Michael. Michael smiled, feeling a familiar sense of excitement building in his guts. He looked down on the papers in front of him. He took the golden company pen and signed his name and initials where it was needed. After months of negotiations, he was finally [...]
When you have as many kids as I do, you learn to live a rough-and-tumble existence. My wife and I became a foster family soon after we got married. For me, foster care was a family thing. My own parent had welcomed children in their house, which is how I had met Shelby. We were [...]
“Are we there yet?” Jamie asked for the seventh time in the last hour, and Nick glanced at Cole with a chuckle/sigh. Turning in his seat, he ruffled the eight-year-old boy’s brown hair. “In another hour, honey. You want to watch another movie?” Jamie nodded. “What about The Lorax?” Jamie grinned. “Cartoons are for babies!” [...]
Sometimes true love is reluctant to blossom and needs a little bit of coaxing in order to come out. But a strong will and a heart filled with determination will triumph every time! The authors of the Bigger Briefs present to you these m/m tales of lovers who just need a gentle prod to push them into the relationship they’ve been yearning for.
It’s not mandatory to read Rough-and-Tumble before this one, but some things may be clearer if you do. Pete picked up his luggage at Station 2 and followed the signs to get to the waiting area. He scanned the crowd. He had been surprise to get a call from Ian yesterday, as they’d had an [...]
Chance took a moment to watch the group of jocks passing the puck on the ice. The cold transformed his breath in a light steam that misted his glasses. He rubbed his gloved hands together before waving at his step-brother. “Mac!” he screamed. Mac skated toward him at high speed, and stopped inches from Chance, [...]
Chance’s fingers flew over the keyboard. His headphones on, he concentrated on the game. His character, a tall wizard he called Korizus, was in the middle of a serious battle against the horde of highly trained undead trolls. Blue and green and red and purple rays were going in all directions. Behind the creatures, another [...]

I hadn’t been on the blog for a whilw, sorry about that. I am deep into a WIP (which I will talk about later), and haven’t been writing anything else. My boys are taking up all my time. I may not work on Vengeance, but it doesn’t mean that my friend in the Wednesday Brief [...]
I tend to miss the Sunday Update a lot apparently, and I don’t have much in term of good news. I’ve hadn’t really edited much in the weekend, and my only excuse is laziness which isn’t a lot to go by. There was a storm on Friday that stopped me from seeing my writer friends, [...]
It’s Monday so I’m late for the update, but to summarize, goal had been achieved, most of it on Saturday, but I revised a little on Friday too.
This is the beginning of a new week. Last week went great. I completed my goal of five hours on my last day off, doing two and an half at the library, and then heading to my friends where I edited another two and an half hours. In doing so, I completed the first lesson [...]
It is Wednesday which means two things; flash fiction and ROW update. Let’s start with the Flash Fiction. This story is part of another universe I created last April. The first story can be read here: Rough-and-Tumble, but this is not necessary to understand this one. My Wednesday Brief Story? FOllow the link: Home is [...]
I’m happy with my progress I had in editing Tie The Knot. I am now in page 50 of the manuscript, and I have identify some of the biggest problems with the story. That being said, I didn’t really follow my goals. I did 30 minutes on Thursday and 2 hours and a half on [...]

There’s a couple of the blog I follow who participate in ROW80 that allow you to set flexible, measurable goals. I decided to participate in the first round of 2013. I was stating in my 2013 resolution post I wanted to revise Tie the Knot, my nano novel and write 200K words for the year. [...]

It’s January 1st, and with it came a brand new design. I also made a big clean up of the site. I relegated the old flash stories in page (in free fiction) and deleted all the posts. All new for 2013. 2012 was a nice year, but I want 2013 to be extraordinary. My goals [...]
A Multi-author M/M anthology from the writers of Wednesday Briefs, who bring you prompt induced Flash fiction every Wednesday. Bigger Briefs is an anthology we began to showcase our slightly bigger briefs. Er, flash fiction. We invite you to take the journey with us!
Cole trimmed the whiskers of his beard. It had been three days since the last time he shaved—or taken a shower for that matter. The entire case had been a pain in his ass from the beginning, but, tonight, they finally made an arrest. Persistence had been more than necessary to bring Lee Fung to [...]
