2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary is Almost Here

Hey, it’s me again. Back from another big break from posts. I’ve been — here we go — busy lately so I haven’t been able to post as often as I’d like to. However, I have a fantastic excuse for you all this week. There are some reasons why I’ve been busy, which I’ll address…

Snowcaps

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday! I took a little trip upstate today with my family. The mountains already had snow on them, which isn’t supposed to be anything to think twice about at this time, but in the age of global warming and climate change, even little things like that can…

Short-staffed

I’m sorry I haven’t written in a while. For once, I have a normal excuse: I’ve been hard at work getting the 2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary together! It’s been an amazing experience learning how to use InDesign and organizing everything into, what I think, is a good looking online journal.¬† I’m…

How Far Would It Go?

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything (that should be the title of my next book). I’m not sure why I fell off a little either. I’ve been busy, but not any busier than I’m used to. I’ve also been going at a much slower pace through¬†Histories by Herodotus. I knew it would be…

Vote 6/6

Democrats have taken control of the House and Republicans managed to keep control of the Senate. This is absolutely amazing news. The wave turned out to be real. Trump will be held accountable. The people, who are better represented by the House, got out and voted for people of all different backgrounds, genders, and sexual…

Vote 5/6

Here’s the latest in the Vote series. It’s the night before the election, and I don’t know if I’m going to have a fiction or poetry piece. I think this is going to be a rant/plea/stump speech on why you have to vote tomorrow. Let’s just dive in. Vote 5/6 I don’t know if you’ve…

Vote 4/6

I haven’t been having a good couple of weeks recently. Bad luck comes in streaks with me. And things usually get worse before they get better, as the cliches suggest. This is about a certain situation I got myself into recently. When I get myself in these situations, I try to find silver linings. Here,…

Vote 3/6

I have another poem for you all. We’re five days away from the most important election of our lives. I’m reading reports saying early voter turnout for people ages 18-39 is up significantly. The blue wave is real, but we can do better. We can always do better. I hope these poems are making a…

Vote 2/6

I decided that I’m definitely going to continue these next few posts that lead up to the election as a voting series. Now is not the time to forget the importance of voting as Trump continues to distract. He knows his political career is on the line in this election, so he will do and…

Vote

The election is almost here, and I’m not sure whether or not to be nervous or excited. I’m a little bit of both, but leaning more towards nervous. It’s hard to be excited when Trump is president. I’m really hoping enough people turn out to make the GOP voting restriction efforts useless, but that’s going…
