Rehab

Two days in a row. Look at me. I feel like my old self again. I’ve been working on this in class. It’s a fiction piece that takes place upstate. It’s still a work in progress and will be workshopped soon so maybe I’ll post again with further revisions. But for now, enjoy! Rehab “There…

Somewhere With You

I know I said I’d have a big story, and that I’d be writing all day, but it turned out that that’s not how it’s going to work. I started writing this morning with those intentions. It just didn’t work out that way. I said what I had to say. Lately I’ve been feeling like…

Two Days, All a Daze

Good morning! No words really for this poem.  For once, I really like the title. And so you know, the poem breaks down on purpose. Let me know if it works. Enjoy. Two Days, All a Daze Haven’t slept the past two days. My hair’s unkept, It’s all a daze. A text at one, leads…

Vacation

The more I look at the stories in my notebook, the more I realize that I am repeating a lot of specific themes. Sorry if it isn’t original. When I write, I’m not always trying to write the perfect story. I’m usually working on something specific, like dialogue, sentence structure, dialogue tags, metaphors, etc. With…

Lost

I started writing this yesterday and finished it up today. It was based on a prompt where the characters can’t get away from each other. I follow it for the most part. You’ll see what happens when I don’t. Enjoy. Lost They’ve been wandering for ten hours straight. One wrong turn was all it took….

I Just Remembered How I First Became a Writer

I was thinking about how I first got into writing a couple days ago. I thought it happened in college, when I decided to major in English, when I realized that I was taking more writing classes than surveys. It was a big part in me becoming a writer. If it wasn’t for college, I…

From Nothing

Now that I finally have a computer–I couldn’t wait any longer–I can start posting everything from my writing notebook. We’ll start with the first decent story. I just made up the title now. All I had was the date: 6/2. Enjoy. From Nothing He didn’t know how to tell her he didn’t love her, so…

And I’d Be Lying

Not much to say. I just have to write. Enjoy. And I’d Be Lying I walk in the door with a smile on my face after a successful night out. I didn’t think about you once. There were some ups and downs, though. But mainly ups. It was like an out-of-body experience, doing what I…

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:…
