On Mathematics, and Some Good News!

I have some good news! And a request! An old friend of mine started a literary journal on Instagram called Instant. They accept stories and essays told in the present tense — 700 words or less! You all know I’m a huge fan of flash fiction, so this was an opportunity I had to jump…

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…

Some Changes

I’m sure you haven’t noticed, but my blog has gone through some significant changes recently. As usual, I’ve been unable to keep my promises to write every day, and as usual, I have an excuse: I did just graduate and I had plenty of time to write, but my focus was primarily on finding a…

Scabs

Sorry for the delay! Here’s the second part to the last post! Scabs I decided to finally try during one of these races. I was off to a good start, but I couldn’t keep my balance as I flew down one of the hills along the bike path. I felt my handlebars shaking and knew…

On Baseball

In honor of spring training and the weather being nicer, I’m posting a short story on baseball, titled: On Baseball. This is shorter than usual, so I might post something a little later on in the day. Stay tuned! On Baseball No one has enough time To sit and watch A newly installed clock Behind…

Crest Glide

This story comes from an in-class assignment where we were given random objects and were told to write a personal story about whatever we were given. I ended up with one of the more random objects: dental floss. This is a short-short story, which is fiction, but based heavily off my own experiences. Enjoy! Crest…

The Moroccan Doctor

I know, I know. Work and school, as usual. The good news now is that I have a good amount of material to post here. Three writing workshops this semester makes it a lot easier to post. I’ll try to keep up and post small assignments I’ve had so far. This is going to be…

The Tiger

Surprise, still here. Busy as always. I’ll be even busier soon with work and summer classes. Just wanted to post my final project for my lit theory class. It’s a collection of five flash fiction stories, based off quotes from an essay by Nietzsche.  They can stand alone by themselves, but there are also connections…

Crossroad

Continuing with the theme of using pictures as prompts, I wrote another quick story for you guys. I love the contrast going on with the picture. There’s so much going on in this moment of time. Hope you enjoy as much as I did. Crossroad The autumn air isn’t as cool as it normally is…

In the Fog

Hi everyone, I liked how my story came out yesterday so I did something similar tonight. I used another picture as inspiration for this short flash fiction piece, and I think this is pretty good too. Enjoy! Here’s the picture:    In the Fog The fog looked as soft as the moss we were stepping…

Green House

I hope you guys are still reading from time to time. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. I just wrote something for class on thursday and liked how it came out so I wanted to share it with all of you. I was planning on doing this throughout the semester,…

Home

Some people think of home simply as a place; A physical location, a city, a state, a man-made structure. I think of home as a feeling, a sense of trust, a safe haven. Home is where you can be yourself – your truest, most vulnerable self. Where you can wear your heart on your sleeve…
