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…

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…

Observations in Starbucks

I wrote this in Penn Station at Starbucks while waiting for my girlfriend to get out of school. I had to be in the city and thought it would be cool to continue writing my thesis at the New York Public Library, and it was awesome, but the library closed early and I had a…

Running Late

Sorry for not getting a post out yesterday! I’m hoping to get back on track with this. It’s a little different from what I’ve been posting. This is a one page (double spaced) play I wrote for the same tiny text class. I loved this assignment because it forced us to make every description, every…

A Place I Once Lived

Hey everyone. This is the follow up (it was part of the same assignment given in class) to the previous post. Again, the title is the prompt. The idea with this and the last post was to write short pieces with only one sentence paragraphs. A Place You Once Lived I lived in an upstairs…

The Suburbs

Sorry for the delay! Trying to play catch up on all my school assignments. This is a poem that’s going to be workshopped on Monday. The class is so tough. Everyone is really talented. I feel like I’m constantly playing catch up just to get to their level. Anyways, here’s my attempt. Enjoy! The Suburbs…

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…

Homeless

I’m so glad fall is finally here! It’s been cold and rainy, and I think the leaves are going to start to change color soon. Tomorrow is also my birthday! It feels weird turning 23, but I’m excited, nonetheless. School’s been going really well despite the workload. I feel like every time I put a…

What I Live For

Nothing special. Just free writing. Maybe I’ll use these thoughts for a future story, or turn them into an epic poem. What I Live For The brightness of the sun the day after it snows. The smell of a summer rain. Feeling the dirt compress underneath your hands when you finish planting a tree. Cloudy…

The Puzzle

This is something I worked on for quite a while, but stopped because life decided to catch up to me. I wasn’t going to post this, but now that I’m working on it again–and I know that it will change significantly–I don’t mind anymore. Consider this a second draft. Also, I know that majority of…

A Simple Night

I really have no idea what I’m getting at with this. I’m trying to display awkwardness between two characters, the paranoia that seems to plague the inexperienced when it comes to dating.   A Simple Night “I found a place I think you might like,” said the boy to his date. “What’s it called?” she…
