Road Trip

I wanted to post a flash fiction piece yesterday, but I couldn’t think of anything. I had to go back to my grad school days and come up with a scenario on the spot. I’ve always been a fan of restrictions because they get me to focus on the most important details. That’s why in…

One Moment

A little girly, but I’ve been coming up with a lot of nice lines to work with lately. My original intent was to somehow put them into a story, but I think they fit better like this. You be the judge. Enjoy. One Moment One moment, a smile, is all I need to run away…

Escape

I had a crazy meltdown before, so I took a last-second trip upstate to clear my head. It was a successful trip and I’m feeling better again. Writing this post was a big help. It kind of reads as a stream of conscious, but it’s more just a reflection on what happened while I was…
