A Broken Promise

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving break! Unlike the title of this story, I’m actually keeping a promise: I’m posting something other than the Walden erasures. I know I didn’t post anything over the weekend. I was actually working on a short story that I might post here in the near future. It…

Walden Erasures, Page 10

I’m back to the erasures! If you haven’t checked out my most recent story, and you’re tired of these erasures, check it out now — unless you have a fear of heights. This erasure was actually pretty tough. I think this was one of the hardest ones so far. You might be able to tell…

Mountain Climbing – 200th Post!

200th Post! I was going to post another erasure today, but I realized that this is actually my 200th post! My blog has changed countlessly over the years, and my most recent change appears to be the most successful. I’ve had this blog for four years, and I’m realizing now that I’m averaging one post…

Walden Erasures, Page 6

This erasure was probably the fastest one I’ve done so far. It’s definitely getting easier. And I’m not just choosing what stands out to me, like some of the other erasures. This was probably the first one where I went in hoping to create something entirely different from what was on the page, and it…

Walden Erasures, Page 5

I feel like I’m slowly getting back into the creative groove. These are really helping. Last one wasn’t as popular, so hopefully this one does a little better. This was a lot harder because there was so much packed into this one page. Let’s see how I did. Walden Erasures, Page 5

Walden Erasures, Page 3

These seem to be getting easier and more interesting as I go, which means you guys will be seeing and reading a lot of these in the future. I’ll try to break up the content with other stories so it’s not just these erasures, but for now I’m really enjoying them so you’ll have to…

Walden Erasure, Pg. 2

I really like how this one came out. There’s a little bit more of a flow, which also takes on a much darker perspective that would never be considered when looking at the book as a whole. It’s amazing how picking and choosing certain words can make something out of seemingly nothing. Economy, Page 2…

Walden Erasures

This post is a little different from anything I’ve previously published here. I’ve been going through a frustrating stretch of writer’s block, so I’m doing some erasures until something sparks. Walden is one of the first books that inspired me to pursue English, so I decided to use it for this post. I did a…

The Dinner Party

This was one of those rare stories where I felt like it was actually complete when I finished it. I’m sure with a couple revisions it could get better, but I think what I mean is that I was paying attention to every detail while writing and making sure everything was consistent, and then at…

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…

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…
