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…

What Happens?

I’m not entirely sure how I came up with this flash fiction piece. I was stuck on ideas and started reading some brief summaries of ancient myths because I was thinking about starting a project where I’d modernize a couple. Many of them focus on life and death, so I guess that’s how I got…

WSJ

This flash fiction piece was inspired by a Wall Street Journal paper on one of the desks at my job. Sometimes when I’m stuck, I pick an object in the room and turn it into a story. I wanted to know who left it, and then that turned into this piece. WSJ All of his…

Cliff Diving

This is one of the first stories I wrote on my typewriter after I ordered a new ribbon off Amazon. It’s a quick flash fiction piece with the most minuscule influence of an actual event that took place in my life. It’d be interesting to see if anyone I know picks up on it. So…

Changing Names

I’m back–again. But with news! I am officially a Queens College MFA graduate. I can’t explain to you how happy it makes me to accomplish one of my many writing goals. For those of you who stuck around since the beginning of this blog, who know my story, thank you. For those that don’t know,…

Car Crash

Sorry for the short break. I’m not done yet. I still have another poem for you guys. I hope your weekend was as good as mine was. I spent it upstate with my family and girlfriend, and it couldn’t have gone any better. I’ve never been happier. Lately, I’ve been trying to write more politically…

The Old House

Can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. Lately I’ve been focusing almost entirely on school. When I’m not, I’m either reading for my own pleasure or watching The Office. Right now, I’m on to book two of the Neapolitan Series by Emily Ferrante. I read book one for school and loved it,…

From Bike Ride to Father

This is my 100th post! I never thought I would make it this far. It feels weird, but I’m happy the desire to write is just as strong as when I first started. Hope you guys enjoy. From Bike Ride to Father It’s been a long time since he’s gone on a bike ride. He…

The Moment

I realize now that I asked late and you’re probably working right now, so I’ll just go ahead and post something anyways. My bad. The offer still stands though. If there’s anything you want to see me write, let me know and I’ll do my best. Today’s Friday, so you have no excuse not to…

Thankful

Hey, I just finished The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and This Is How You Lose Her and loved both, considering it took less than two weeks to finish them. Lately, I’ve been reading nothing but classics, so going from the beautifully written prose of All the Kings Men to the raw, gritty prose…
