Priorities

It’s been a while — again — since I’ve last written anything. Life has been extremely different lately since I’ve moved to Queens. It’s not that I don’t have the time to write, but the time I have to spend writing ends up going towards something more productive to make the day-to-day life easier. I…

Guest Post: Lingering by John Grey

Wow, it’s been a while, guys. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it, but I recently moved to Astoria, Queens! My life has been quite hectic recently, but for the absolute best. I’ve been dreaming of living in Astoria my whole life and now it’s finally true. For those of you who don’t know, I…

It Was Her Fault

I had absolutely no idea what this would turn into when I started writing, which seems to be the case for a lot of my fiction. I’m currently reading There There by Tommy Orange and read a scene about one of the characters going through a Native American ritual. Throughout the book, they talk about how…

Alone

I’m not entirely sure where this flash fiction piece came from. To a certain degree, I’m like this, but I definitely know my self worth. I’m still having a lot of trouble coming up with ideas for stories that aren’t directly related to The Histories by Herodotus. I’m about thirty pages away from finishing, so hopefully…

It Will Do

I’m finally almost done with The Histories by Herodotus. I’ve been reading this book for months and months. It’s so hard trying to read when you’re busy at work, busy at home, and busy trying to find a new one. Now that things are calmed down, I have the time to sit and read and actually enjoy…

Swallowed Whole

Hey Happy New Year, you guys! I hope you all celebrated safely and with all your loved ones. I wanted to start 2019 with a flash fiction piece because it felt fitting for what I want to accomplish this year. I’d love to know what your writing goals for 2019 are, so don’t hesitate to…

Testing Fate

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays! My life has been crazy recently, so I’ve had to put the blog on hold for a little while. I’m in the process of moving into my first apartment with my girlfriend and it’s been quite the experience. We found a great place in Astoria that looks exactly…

Games

I just had an interesting conversation with someone I never met, and it seemed like we were both trying to figure each other out by assuming the best and worst of one another. We all have different perspectives and concerns based on past experiences that force us to act and treat people a certain way….

The 2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary is Finally Here

The 2018 Winter Issue Guys. I’ve been saying this past week that the 2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary is coming, and now that it’s finally here, it doesn’t even feel real. I’ve spent so much time on it, proofread it countless times, worked with extremely talented authors since the beginning of summer, and…
