Latin Lesson (Memoir)

I have a poetry submission for you all today. Clarissa Simmons, owner of the blog poeturja, wrote a great poem about the enjoyment of learning latin as a child and being able to picture herself on the ancient Roman battlefields, which ultimately conflict with the way her life has turned out. If you wish to…

Thin Branch

I have a new poetry submission for you all today. My good friend Cam, who I used to work (read: suffer) with at Target, reached out to me with an amazing poem. He used to show me his work all the time and I was always amazed at the talent he has. I’m honored to…

The Trees

I wrote this after watching an episode of Chef’s Table on Netflix yesterday. If you’ve never seen it, they focus on world-renowned chefs and the restaurants they run. This episode took place in Sicily. The chef talked about how almonds were becoming more and more scarce, which was a direct threat to his pastry shop…

Floating

Another poem! But by me this time. I know it’s National Poetry Month, and that we should be celebrating poetry non stop this April, but I’m going to switch it up soon for those of you who like my fiction better. I have one more poem lined up and ready to go — perhaps for…

Through the Mountains

I have another poem for you all tonight. I feel like kicking National Poetry Month off with as many poems as possible because what better way is there to celebrate? I spoke this one while driving up to New Paltz. There were low hanging clouds that were actually clouds and not just fog rolling down the mountains,…

Tomorrow

I was going to write this yesterday, but figured I could just do it tomorrow. This will be funnier in a minute — especially since today is National Napping Day, a day of procrastination. Tomorrow I’ll do it tomorrow, I said So I can sleep an extra Hour before work. I’ll try again Tomorrow, I…

Runs in the Family – Four-year Anniversary for Come and Go

Today is a special day for the blog. Today is the four-year anniversary for Come and Go. For those of you who recently discovered my blog, it wasn’t always called Come and Go. When I first made this blog, it was simply…Nick’s Writing Blog (with some photography). The idea stayed the same over the years,…

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…
