Nezhenka (2016), US Copyright TXu 2-016-379, novel, 350pp, 100,000 words: An amnesiac hitchhiker crosses the country, enthralled and ruled by three sisters, dominatrices, in an epic re-telling of Jack Kerouac's On the Road.
A hitchhiker of no name and no money thumbs across the US, Alone without a past, without anyone but himself, without any of the tools of the modern world--cash, credit or debit card, cell phone, smartphone, computer device, without even an I.D.--nothing except his wits--he undertakes to stay alive, crossing dangerous mountains, gorges, and plains, fending the home-grown terrorism of America, bearding the wild cougars of Feminism, combating sorcerers and sorceresses, as if he were a nymph in drag-time Metamorphosis. Along the way, time and again, he is stalked by Evil, lured and threatened, coaxed and seducced, to give up his virtue for a stint in the Dungeon of Dys Delight. Wicked women want him because he tells stories. Weapons are words, and, as the hitchhiker proves, a storyteller can stave off and starve the Devil, and go a long, long way to the beginning of the next tale to be writ.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
