What are Ozlandish Writings?

From July 2010 to December 2014 we ran OZLAND PICTURE STORIES as described below. Sadly though the number of writers reduced over the years and we decided to call it a day. We leave these as a record of the good times we had.

Are "You" ready to challenge your writing skills? Then participate in our OZLAND Picture Stories writing series at The Ozland Art Gallery.

Each month a new picture will be picked, from our OZLAND Artist of the Month collection, with different themes. Your goal is to write a 500-1000 word... poem... essay... or story about the picture picked. This is a chance for you to challenge your writing skills each month. Story can be written in ANY genre... sci fi... romance... ghost... fantasy... fiction... non-fiction... biography... mystery... historical... whatever your writing genre... feel free to experiment. Send your writing inworld to Sven Pertelson as a notecard to have it included on the web site. We meet at the The Ozland Art Gallery each Wednesday at Noon and 6pm SLT to read the latest submissions on voice. More Information

Grrrrrrrrrr... It's July! - Llola Lane

Grrrrrrrrrr... It's July!

Why DO we have snow??? Why DON'T we have green grass???
Why DO we have blizzards??? Why DON'T they just pass???

Why IS it so dark??? Why DON'T we have bright sun???
Why DO we have to stay inside??? Why CAN'T we go out to have fun???

Why IS it sooooooo cold??? Why DON'T we have warm weather???
Why DO I smell holly??? Why DON'T I smell heather???

Why IS the wind howling??? Why DON'T we have a light breeze???
Why DO we wear a coat??? Why CAN'T we wear short sleeves???

Why DO the men have a beard??? Why DON'T they shave???
Why ARE the kids so naughty??? Why DON'T they just behave???

Why ARE the trees so bare??? Why DON'T they have leaves???
Why DO we wear wool??? Why DON'T we have cotton weaves???

Why DO we cook in the oven??? Why CAN'T we light the grill???
Why IS it so busy??? Why CAN'T it be still???

The answer is simple you see...
I live at the North Pole.. with my family!
