Our Tongue

I wrote this flash fiction piece after eavesdropping on a conversation. Sometimes when I’m stuck and I can’t think of anything to write, I listen to what people are saying and a hear a word or phrase that jumps out. Here, two people were talking about speaking to a salesman in his native language, as…

Gardening

I’ve been sitting on this poem for a while, not entirely sure what to do with it. I loved how it came out, but I kept feeling like there was something wrong. I think I finally got it to where I want it, so I’ll let you all be the judge. Gardening In the light,…

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…

WSJ

This flash fiction piece was inspired by a Wall Street Journal paper on one of the desks at my job. Sometimes when I’m stuck, I pick an object in the room and turn it into a story. I wanted to know who left it, and then that turned into this piece. WSJ All of his…

Any migraine sufferers here? I had a bad one yesterday, and I was going to post this in the midst of it, but it was hurting too much to even look at my phone or computer with the brightness all the way down. I think I wrote this while I had another migraine, too. Migraines…

Bookmark

This isn’t entirely about me, although I do enjoy using everything I see and that’s readily available as a bookmark. I actually used to dog ear my books, but now I’d rather lose my place than even think about doing something as barbaric. What do you all use as bookmarks? Bookmark He used anything he…

Head Injury, Third Down, Hospital Bed

I know it’s been a couple days since I last posted, so I thought I’d get back in the groove with three hint fiction pieces. Normally, I’d separate them out because I’d want each story to stand alone; however, I like them together so that’s what you’ll get. If you don’t know what hint fiction…

A shoutout to a few Bloggers

Originally posted on MrHushHush Entries:
There are too many bloggers–if you can call them that–out there that get so much credit for “blog posts” that could very well be confused with twitter updates. It’s ridiculous. A lot of people actually put their heart and soul into writing their posts, even though they don’t have to,…
