Quills and Ink Stains, the oh so silent blog, has finally spoken! I found him puttering about with a dazed expression on his face. After some time of attempting to convince him that I was not trying to sell him anything, he finally agreed to answer some questions about his long absence. Here's how it went: 

Quills, can I call you that? Where have you been all this time? 

Sure, sure Quills works, I suppose. I've been err... around. 

That's not vague at all. Why the silence? 

Have I been silent? I didn't notice at all. 

Really, now you're being quite evasive. 

Oh, fine! It's so embarrassing. There I was, completely prepared for my debut, when suddenly I was surrounded by a flurry of words. Verbs paired up with nouns, while adjectives, prepositions, and pronouns weaved in between them in an intricate dance. They mouthed something at me but I could not make it out. Thinking that they wanted me to join them, I shook my head. That would be disastrous. Nonetheless, my stubborn two left feet decided that they wanted to join the fun!

Oh dear...

Oh dear is an understatement! I ended up misplacing several dangling modifiers and causing beautiful sentences to be reduced to forlorn fragments.

Goodness, that sounds chaotic!

Oh, that's not the end of it. My left feet wanted even more attention and did not stop until the sound of my pants ripping filled the entire room. That is why I have been absent for so long. Are you satisfied now?

I'm sorry. I know it must have been mortifying but I'm sure you'll laugh about this someday.  

No, I really don't think so! 

Alright, I sense a need for a new subject. How about you tell everyone what they can expect to find here? 

Well, there will be a lot stuff about writing. 

Care to elaborate?

Sure, things like the writing process, challenges faced, and some fun tidbits.  I mean anything that has to do with writing and/or books is fair game. 

Ah. Any book reviews?

No, not unless there's a book that I feel MUST be reviewed. However, I will mention books that I think are amazing and should be read by everyone. 

Great, well thanks for taking the time to talk with me. 

You're welcome. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must return to err.. my business.


So, that was Quills and Ink Stains. I don't envy his pants situation whatsoever. Luckily, I've never had the misfortune of experiencing it.  


  1. I expect nothing but passion from this "quills character"... may my ears scream or gush with pleasantries- and may confusion be written down too; as it also counts,,,, i expect well written blurps dashes and blogs!

    1. Expect the unexpected. Dun dun dun! Oh, and your last statement amuses me greatly :)

  2. I continue to expect!

  3. It appears the world of the inanimate is so powerful and enticing that it has engulfed the very writter about its subject!

    many happy returns

    1. Indeed and it knows just how powerful it is.
