Too Easy

Here’s another wisdom-tooth-related flash fiction piece for you all. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before, but tons of people I know have overdosed on heroin — two or three very recently, within weeks of each other. After getting my wisdom teeth out, I was prescribed a good amount of pain killers and it got…

Spring

I saw somewhere on Twitter that May is National Short Story Month. The fact that there are multiple holidays for every single day and month of the year is starting to make them all more and more meaningless, but this is another one I can definitely get behind. Besides, after all that poetry, I’m ready…

Quick Updates

Hey just wanted to point out to you all a couple big changes that I’ve made to the website! Update Number 1 comeandgoliterary.com is now where you can find me! Doesn’t that look so much better and more professional? I recently upgraded my plan so I could get a custom domain and finally get rid of the…

Missing

Here’s a flash fiction piece I wrote a while ago where I was simply just trying to make more of an effort to write from a woman’s perspective. The overwhelming majority of my stories are centered around male characters, so every once in a while, I try to break that habit. Hopefully you all enjoy!…

Parking

Anyone who lives in Queens and Brooklyn, or visits New York City on a regular basis knows how bad parking is, regardless of the neighborhood you’re in. I work in Fresh Meadows, right on the border of Jamaica Estates. Parking, for the most part, is pretty good, and there’s lots of residential areas where no…

Feel the Sound

I don’t remember how I came up with this. I know I had an epiphany at some point, but I can’t recall how I sparked it. I think it had something to do with Stephen Hawking’s death, how he was so smart but had to sacrifice his body. Perhaps it allowed him to take full…

In Order

I wrote this at work, overhearing a conversation I probably shouldn’t have been listening to, and immediately thought this has to be written down. I was hoping it would help me understand what was actually said, but it didn’t. I still can’t see this as a good thing. In Order There was a brief pause. She…

Away

I wrote this after listening to a folk pop playlist on Spotify that I’ve been obsessing over for the past few months. One of the songs on the playlist is sung in Simlish, the fictional language of The Sims, which is just straight up weird. What makes it even weirder is that it’s actually pretty…

Runs in the Family – Four-year Anniversary for Come and Go

Today is a special day for the blog. Today is the four-year anniversary for Come and Go. For those of you who recently discovered my blog, it wasn’t always called Come and Go. When I first made this blog, it was simply…Nick’s Writing Blog (with some photography). The idea stayed the same over the years,…

The Cold

I wrote this flash fiction piece on a cold day at work, but I don’t remember how I was actually inspired to write this up. I’ve been working on building tension so maybe that’s how this came to be. Hopefully by the end, you can’t wait to find out what happened! The Cold No one told…
