We Are Weird


We are.

Weird, that is.

involving or suggesting the supernatural; unearthly or uncanny: a weird sound; weird lights.


fantastic; bizarre: a weird getup.


Archaic . concerned with or controlling fate or destiny.

Now look at  definition numero tres. COOL. Right?

Indeed. I, honestly never knew that in the archaic weird meant such a thing.

We are weird. Has any body seen that episode of Scrubswhere Carla’s head is opened up and a Pandora’s Box effect goes on?


Well. Imagine if our minds were on display.


As writers’ all sorts of amazing, astonishing and terrible things play in the DVD player that is our mind. It is dark and dreary, full of wolves and creatures scurrying about a dark, eerie forest and at the same time it can shine forth a blinding light, and rainbows…and unicorns…and little, tiny faeries holding chocolate kisses.


We have to be this way. God made us this way. It’s called imagination. We all have one yes, but Writers…we are  a special, peculiar breed.

I am a writer.

And I am weird.



About Tymothy Longoria

He has written several short stories for the online macabre zine Underneath The Juniper Tree and in 2012 was awarded Debut Author of the Year by Twisted Core Press for 'Envy', his contribution to the Seven Deadly Sins Anthology. He is currently editing his full-length dark fantasy retelling, Revenants: Book One of The Stories. Fairy tales? If only. Legends will be reborn.

  1. Nice, short, and interesting. I especially like the part about controlling fate or destiny. Because really, fiction writers are in some ways masters of their own little kingdoms that must be surrendered continually to God.

  2. I like spelling it “wyrd.”

  3. I second Janeen.I got my whole ‘little’ universe that I direct, and it’s pretty cool. 😉 Frustrating at times, but you know. Ultimately God’s in control there too if I’m submitting to Him. We can’t forget Who this is all really for. And for some reason I never knew definition number 3 was a definition of weird! Wonder why not. We writers are the type to let our imaginations flow out rather than restrain them to get them out of the way.
