TIMM Tag of The Week, Vol 11

Tag: written on Tuesday

Return to what I said last week, about tagging pieces with anything I can think of, here's one that came to me unfortunately well after I started hauling my art from deviantArt to TIMM, so expect the spread of this particular tag to remain extensive and yet still woefully incomplete.

There's one for every day, and at this current time, Tuesday is the one with the most posts. I don't know if that pattern will hold true in the long run, or if you'll discover any significance of posts from this day as opposed to any other, but let's find out.

Featured Pieces:
"Counting Seconds (Mature)," Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Note: This piece is marked mature for language and possible written violence, not for erotic content.

This is the product of a couple of different ideas, one that was spur of the moment, the other that had been bouncing around for a while. The first was a way to write dialog that blurred the line between what the first-person narrator says and what they think. The second was to make a writer the main suspect (though wholly innocent) in a serial murder investigation. This piece also delves into the concept that many of the descriptions of the unsub on shows like Criminal Minds do describe people like me.

"ETM," Tuesday, April 5, 2011
This poem describes my ability to remember physical characteristics of people I've physically touched to such a detail that it's bordering on Eidetic. It's not that precise, but I call it that anyway, mostly for simplicity's sake.

"All Your Dead Were Civilized," Tuesday, January 11, 2011
One more piece from my misheard lyrics category (and likely a tag that you may see featured in the future). This also happens to be the title of one of my published collections of poetry, available on Lulu.com. The pieces included within center around poetry focused on dreaming.

The misheard lyric comes from "All You Did Was Save My Life," by Our Lady Peace.
