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…

Books of the Month

Blog Update So when I first started this blog, my only goal was to post writing assignments from class and occasionally come up my own stories. I had no idea how long this would last. In fact, I assumed I would just forget about the blog all together. There were definitely some moments where it…

Bookmark

This isn’t entirely about me, although I do enjoy using everything I see and that’s readily available as a bookmark. I actually used to dog ear my books, but now I’d rather lose my place than even think about doing something as barbaric. What do you all use as bookmarks? Bookmark He used anything he…

A shoutout to a few Bloggers

Originally posted on MrHushHush Entries:
There are too many bloggers–if you can call them that–out there that get so much credit for “blog posts” that could very well be confused with twitter updates. It’s ridiculous. A lot of people actually put their heart and soul into writing their posts, even though they don’t have to,…

A Nap Before Bed

I wrote this after a failed attempt at a nap before bed with my girlfriend. We established a new level of lazy together that we both love. Now that I’m working full-time, it’s harder for us to spend time together, or take random trips upstate where we can be alone. It seemed only natural to…

Buried

In honor of the two feet of snow that buried my front lawn today, I give you guys this winter-themed story: Buried Being buried alive wasn’t as alarming as I expected it to be. There was just enough space for me to move my head. I determined by the amount of light I could still…

Walden Erasures, Page 6

This erasure was probably the fastest one I’ve done so far. It’s definitely getting easier. And I’m not just choosing what stands out to me, like some of the other erasures. This was probably the first one where I went in hoping to create something entirely different from what was on the page, and it…

Walden Erasures, Page 4

There’s no way you’re still interested in these. Unfortunately for you all, I am, so here’s another erasure. What’s interesting is that I haven’t read this book in years, and my only memories of Walden are happy and transcendental and awe inspiring with a hint of mind-numbing boredom. As I continue to read, one page a…

The Dinner Party

This was one of those rare stories where I felt like it was actually complete when I finished it. I’m sure with a couple revisions it could get better, but I think what I mean is that I was paying attention to every detail while writing and making sure everything was consistent, and then at…

Grenade

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, but I didn’t know where I’d actually go with it. I was thinking of writing up some kind of army story, but I don’t know enough about the military to write something that hasn’t already been done. Instead, I decided to work on my long,…
