The Girl in the Grey

I was asked to write about something other than me observing stuff because it wasn’t as creative as my normal work, so I took the liberty to observe her doing work in Starbucks. The Girl in the Grey The girl in the grey hoodie with white strings dangling down as she types leans over her…

Karl Ove Knausgaard

How into the literary world are you all? My MFA program introduced me to Literature with a capital L, and showed me where to find it. Now that I’m working and writing all day, I’m no longer able to totally immerse myself in the writing world. But there are ways to stay on top of…

Two Chestnut Trees

I hope you all didn’t forget about me. I was lucky enough to be able to get away for the weekend with my girlfriend. The trip was much needed and helped me forget about turning twenty-five on Thursday. We collected chestnuts in my backyard and black walnuts in my front yard. Collecting the chestnuts has…

1,000 Likes!

I can’t believe it but I actually hit 1,000 likes! When I first started this blog almost 4 years ago, I never thought it would last as long as it has. What’s even harder to believe is that it’s been almost 4 years! I just want to thank all my followers who’ve stuck around all…

Questions

I wrote this with the idea in mind that I would write a story that only asked questions. I always felt that one question leads into another and another. It was really fun doing this and I definitely feel like there’s enough of a story/plot for the reader to pick up on. I’ll let you…

Pasta Carbonara

I wrote this after cooking up some pasta carbonara from a recipe I saw online. Lately, I’ve been really interested in cooking. In high school, I thought I would be a chef one day, and I was even more passionate about cooking, but my priorities changed after I fell in love with writing. I never…

Numb

Sorry about skipping a day. I’ve been extremely busy with work and dog sitting a 15/16 year old blind poodle for my mom’s friend. It’s been hard staying on top of posting but I’m trying to not break away from the routine. I wrote this a little while ago. Towards the end of the original,…

Window Seat

Yes, I wrote this while sitting at a window table in a bagel place on my lunch break. It was a quick spur of the moment thing. I had a funny thought and I wanted to expand it into a little micro fiction piece. Window Seat I accept the responsibility of taking the table next…

When Two People Fall in Love

Two posts today! Consider yourselves lucky! I wrote this very quickly during a conversation with someone special. Normally, I save these poems for her, but I want to post this one so I am. Something clicked in me while we were talking and I felt a little bad while writing it because I was going…

Cliff Diving

This is one of the first stories I wrote on my typewriter after I ordered a new ribbon off Amazon. It’s a quick flash fiction piece with the most minuscule influence of an actual event that took place in my life. It’d be interesting to see if anyone I know picks up on it. So…

Her Last First Date

This quick story came from a prompt that was supposed to be about the perfect first date. I decided to switch it up and put a little twist on it. It’s hard to talk about it without ruining it. You’ll see my intentions are pretty self-explanatory, so I’ll let the story do the talking. Her…

The 48th Floor

This story was inspired by a recent conference I had to attend for work. Me and another tech writer took the train into Manhattan and went to the 48th floor of 1 Penn Plaza where the view was absolutely amazing. I’m new to the job and I don’t know everything about the job yet, so…
