While ago I won in Lush game (not writing contest), and decided to give that money back to Lush community and support authors with buying their published work. I am reading them in random order, however haven't been a reader lately. My Kindle is getting crowded though, writers have been busy and I am really behind with it.You can find published lush authors at the top of the forum - Lush Publishing.

I understand what you are saying, but then again, the IRA wasn't firing rockets from artillery batteries based in Dublin Hospitals, schools and Churches either. Milik, I don't understand what you are saying. By this logic UK had even more 'right' to attack Ireland because bombs were not launched form childrens territory, but Israelis don't care nor hesitate to attack those places. I think it is just despicable. Now is good time to say that I am pro life specially the one that need protection as children do. I have nothing against Jews nor Israelis and as it has been said already if anything Europe is (was, depends in what kind of revenge they will turn this in) supporter of Israel, however there are some things that right mind just cannot overcome and accept.
This scenario plays out every so often. Here's how it works: Hamas needs to draw attention to their cause. They know that Israel will always respond to terrorist attacks with military force, so they lob hundreds of missiles into Israel from sites located near civilian centers. When Israel hits those sites, civilians are killed and Hamas counts on sympathy to draw attention to their cause. It's a vicious circle that has no end in sight. It's not always about religion or land, but about power and control. It is not so simple, however it is about control and power. As I see it Arabic world is quite fed up with Israeli-ans arrogance, they for sure want some changes in the Middle East and for sure Hamas and Palestine itself are counting on support. They must be quite fed up with the whole thing since they are aware that US is behind Israel, and I don't think EU will interfere.Here is one disgusting video of murdering Palestinian civil in cold blood by Israeli-ans. Guy was trying to find his family and got himself killed. Video is for those who think that Israeli-ans are just defending themselves from lowlifes who are hiding behind children, schools and hospitals.https://news.vice.com/article/cellphone-video-captures-gaza-civilian-shot-and-killed-by-sniper?utm_source=vicenewsfb
what am I doing exactly?Now I'm not allowed to speak my mind either?
I don't see why he can't ask and not get attacked. Maybe he is actually curious as to what others say.He never said any of that. Please, don't do this to yourself. Read again what I have said, read, they are questions, not statements, questions. And if anything I encourage questions, any kind, but be prepared for answers as well. Beside if you are curious, you ask differently, in my opinion.
Ok. Wow. No one agrees with me. Forget I asked. Don't be like that. You can and should ask questions.However, the question arises why did you ask it, because you want people to agree with you, and than why would you want that? To make some changes the way comp.is stated? Or you have troubles with your inspiration and don't know how to approach the theme? With first one I advise, don't bother with second one, ask differently maybe some authors can and are willing to advise you. Either way good luck!
However the theme of the current contest feels a little...different. having to include a toy that is specifically sold by the Lush sex shop. And whats more the prize being store credit. It feels kinda contrived to me. Almost like it's a big marketing gimmick. So? I don't fully understand what is troubling you, the fact that this is free site and its little self promotion so we can still have free site or writing challenge itself? or the prize on the free site? it could be very easily done without any prizes after all. no to be too blunt but to me this sounds like 'offer man a hand and he will tear your arm off'
ooo, things are heating up and even before the entries, love it! Cannot wait to read stories in this challenge. Good luck everyone!
I appreciate responses, thank you guys!I am usually very cautious and careful when it comes to my skin, but I think it happened during lunch time going and coming back to the car in Italy, temperatures were crazy.I apply sunblock regularly, I can even feel it when I need new dosage of it, but apparently that was not enough for last year temperatures. I will try to find Kiehl's over here or at least something with similar product description. I am familiar with Neoutrogena, of course, but I cannot stand heaviness of it on me, that is one of the reasons why I wear so little or none make-up in general, it just bothers me and my skin. Thanks Buz for the eye opener! Even though I know consequences of sun burns it never crossed my mind to see dermatologist about it. I will make appointment just to make sure that every thing is fine.Again, thanks
What an achievement! I just went to see how many of you are in this special club, total 5! Absolutely great badge!!Congratulations
II believe in God, but I'm pro-choice because since I'm not God, I/the government have no right to tell women what the f%ck to do with their bodies.It don't got shit to do with me, so why should I get upset about what other people are doing?Once again, I believe in God (I ain't no saint by any means), but until He comes down here and tells the world what's truly right/wrong, I'm just gonna let people do them (unless morally wrong) without judgement 'cause I'm not Him. I like you. You seems open-minded believer and I respect that.In general you have super motto, if something doesn't affect your life you shouldn't get upset with others actions. But, sometimes actions of other people might affect you in the future, and that is when we should get 'involved', to protect our future, like pro choice people are trying to protect their choice in the future, not necessarily that they will have abortion, but choice.
Each one of us has their own insecurities and fears Loneliness that we face in a crowded place Can create devastating illusions, Those subjective and all too personal Inner spaces that we live in. Illusion of love is a dangerous one, Being in love with love, It’s not the fairest game of them all. Sometimes desire for a simple human touch Can lead into an imaginative inner world,...

The house echoes my uneasy mood, The clatter of my high heels is too loud In the eerie room. Lana Del Rey’s soft toned music And the low light in the corner Are not helping, either. Slowly I strip, Trying to calm myself down with sensual moves. Perhaps the strong liquor you left for me Will bring me some comfort. Naked. I try to relax on the sofa As I see That this is what our...

Considering that this might be, What I was looking for, Hoped for, What I was wishing for, I should play it nicely No mind games, No who will take power over, Non competing I will take, Carefully build up dress made of stone hard bricks, Off my chest, I am going to force myself, To show him what I am. I trust myself, That I am good enough, Interesting enough And funny enough, To keep...

I feel your power taking me over. Your eyes ask, “Can you feel it?” It is a conversation between our bodies; There is no need for words. Our bodies play their own game, I have no say in it, And as it is the most natural thing to do, Without a word being said You take my hand and pull me closer. Your touch takes possession of my skin, My body shivers as your grip becomes stronger. ...

For all the sleepless nights, And the tears I have shed, For the unfulfilled promises, And every broken word, I forgive you. For the wasted moments, The opportunities missed, The dreadful doubts, And unrealistic fears you held inside of you, I forgive you. For the darkness of the past, And leaving no bridge unburnt, For all the locked doors, And not even one window open to the future,...

Jealousy. Is it possible I don't know much about it? No, because .. I met a man, Funny, sexy and smart. I enjoyed spending time with him. Soon he began to tease me, With small things at first. Oooh! I loved that a lot! So he decided to tell me about the other girls he was seeing. His bragging became cruder and bolder, Those details didn't feel good to hear, And my feelings...

Showing you I can be weak doesn't make me so, When you see my dark side, it doesn't mean I'm screwed up, I am strong and self confident enough To let you, and the world, See me as I am. I know who I am, I have no illusions, no shame, no reason to hide. I am at ease with myself. This is no time for fairy tales; I refuse to tell you what you want to hear because you...

I ruined one love, one perfect love. I was frightened, and pushed him as far away as I could. I set my standards high And kept expecting him to meet them. I ruined that love, then I did it again. He was perfect for me, I can say that without an ounce of shame. Our love was good, Full of laughter and respect, He loved me and encouraged me to be myself, I was...
