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

The Curse - by Gabrielle Wind

“Now that for trying to kill me.” I said walking over to the cab and get in. We headed to the air port. I sat there looking out the window and sigh. When we got to the air port. I got out the car and paid the cab driver. I went up to the counter and show them my military badge and she gave me the ticket and I headed to the shuttle. I look over my shoulder and notice the dark elf that I had a run in with. I glare at the dark elf and I notice it was a female. I shook my head and went through the security and head to the shuttle. Once I got I looked out side the air port window and notice the moon was big and orange. I swallow hard but I got the answer to what I was seeking. I sat down in my seat and looked the shuttle window as we took off into space. I watch the planet grew smaller till it was no longer visible.

When we arrive to the space station just out side of Earth orbit. I got up and started heading to the entry way of the space station. I walk up to the guard and show him my military badge and head to my room.

when i got to my room i sat my down with a sigh. i begin to think about what was said, then i got up and headed out the door. i head to the library, the library that was able to be access to the public was only two levels. but there was something different. i went to the back where to security personnel stand. i look to my right and show her my military badge and they let me in. i looked around and look up the i swear there was at least seven stories worth of books. these books were from all the research. well as i look up a book and grab it. i started to read it and then ran back to my room.

“ Oh my this not good,” I said worried some. I closed the book and then return the book to the library.

I looked over and saw Luna.

“Hey Luna how are you feeling,” I look at her and smiles towards her. Luna was my daughter that was birth back she was traveling through the rift. Though I was lucky enough to give her birth to her.

“ I feeling fine mother,” she said looking at me and she smiles towards me. “ what did you want to talk to me about mother.”

“ Well I found out how to get this curse lifted but I not sure, but the book said the only way that the curse can be lift and I can get the power is to break the mandolin but it can be done only in self defense. also I found out it a elven curse and there a warning on the side. it said who ever break this mandolin out of defense shall be rewarded. I have yet to figure out what happens if you don't.” I said give a slight smile.

“Well, mom you can explain it as we head down to Earth.” Luna said taking my arm and pulling me towards the transport room.

Once we got down to Earth we were at my house. Luna and I went to the armory just in case something were to happen why are here. I grabbed my two swords and place one on each hip and then get the rest of my patrol gear on.

“So are you ready to patrol Luna?” I asked her as I check to see if everything is set. Then I grab two pair of sun glasses I put mine on and handed the other set to Luna. i watch her put them on and we headed out the door.
