Snowcaps

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday! I took a little trip upstate today with my family. The mountains already had snow on them, which isn’t supposed to be anything to think twice about at this time, but in the age of global warming and climate change, even little things like that can…

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…

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…

The Rush

The third and final story for tonight! This, again, is based off a prompt. I’m too tired to think on my own right now. The prompt was simply: Write about moving quickly and doing things fast. Enjoy! The Rush From the moment he woke up, he found himself rushing. Rushing through the shower, breakfast, the commute,…

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…

My Name’s Not Christopher

My Name’s Not Christopher   Not the best start, but a smile the next morning was all I needed to realize that the one in my arms will be the one I’ll say that won me over. There’s a desire strong enough to fight through the snow to see where we might go. And even…

Snow in the Night

I wrote this while I was Upstate, during a snow storm. I totally forgot about it, but now that I read it again, I actually like it.  I kind of choked on the ending, though. That, I had to edit, and I still don’t like it, but I’m posting it anyways.   Snow in the…

A Spot of Land

I’ve been wanting to write a poem for a little while now, but I couldn’t think of anything to write about. Finally, last night, when I got home late, I had an idea. I wrote it with the intentions of telling a story. I want the reader to feel a sense of completeness when they…

Dim Sum

Hey everyone. I finally finished All the King’s Men and I started reading a book of plays by Sam Shepard. These two books along with Invisible Man have really influenced my writing sample, which I am more than half way through the first revision in. I’m also about half way through Leaves of Grass, which…
