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 Tiger

Surprise, still here. Busy as always. I’ll be even busier soon with work and summer classes. Just wanted to post my final project for my lit theory class. It’s a collection of five flash fiction stories, based off quotes from an essay by Nietzsche.  They can stand alone by themselves, but there are also connections…

Walden Poetry

I’m going to do something very different. A while ago, I saw someone was picking words from each line every page of Infinite Jest and turning them into poems. I’m going to try to do the same, but with Walden. I’ll try it with one page to start and see how it goes. Try it with your favorite…

What Makes Me Smile

This is a simple prompt: Write about something that makes you smile. What makes you happy? I have a feeling this post is going to be a huge mess. Hopefully I can keep it together and turn it into something nice, something that will make you smile. What Makes Me Smile The first thing that comes to…

What I Live For

Nothing special. Just free writing. Maybe I’ll use these thoughts for a future story, or turn them into an epic poem. What I Live For The brightness of the sun the day after it snows. The smell of a summer rain. Feeling the dirt compress underneath your hands when you finish planting a tree. Cloudy…

Can You Believe It?

Like many of my posts, I wasn’t going to post this, because it would just be weird (it still might be, but I don’t care). Then I realized I shouldn’t feel weird about how I feel in the first place. That’s why I write, and that’s why I have a writing blog: to express how…

Writing Problem

Back from D.C. a little early! The weather wasn’t looking too good, so we decided to leave today instead of tomorrow, so we don’t get stuck in the snow. I got to meet up with my best friend, explore parts of the area that most people don’t go to (the hood, sort of), and take…

I Find Myself

I wrote this the other day with the intentions of going up in front of an audience for the first time. I’m kind of glad I didn’t, since it’s totally unedited. I didn’t follow through because the event was totally booked, but I still had a good time with my cousin, who did perform with…

Pain

I can’t figure out what I’m going to write about. I’ve been spending so much time reading countless things for work and I’ve been slowly getting through my never-ending, must-read list. I have some spare time, so we’ll see if anything good will come out of it. Actually, I just came across an interesting prompt:…

The Puzzle (Revised)

Here’s a revision of my story, The Puzzle. It’s going to go through one more revision. I probably won’t post that on here, so make sure you read this one! If you read the earlier post, you’ll notice that the story went through a pretty major change, hopefully for the better. I’ll also have something else…
