Reading my past posts, one thing, if anything, becomes clear; I am no longer the writer I was when I started this blog. I had no voice, or rather, I was searching. To dumb it down, I was trying to discover myself. Though that discovery has yet to be fleshed out, it’s poked out its beautiful little head and let me know it’s there — which in the past, I wasn’t so sure was true.
With change comes more change, so I am altering the aesthetics of the blog to suit my personal story and brand better. As I work on new pages, updating the current ones, and creating a better site overall, the posts will be delayed.
Thank you for your patience, and I look forward to getting the new and improved site up and running. Stay tuned!
We humans have the ability to learn from the mistakes of others. For example, if I never touched fire before, and I watched someone else touch fire, and then I watched as they ran around holding their hand screaming in pain, I would think, “Yea, I’m not touching fire.” (more…)
Hello, all! I wanted to share some info about my reformation on the Daily Writing segment. It will no longer be a daily writing. I will be writing every day, but on a much larger piece each week. (more…)
What is the source? Pete scanned the pages of the journal in a haste of inquisition. It has to be in here somewhere! The sun finally disappeared behind the horizon, and the only illumination in the room was a lamp that sat on the desk where he sat. (more…)
This segment will kick ass! Every week I will post some type of prompt to help inspire and get the creative juices flowing. You post a link in the comments section (or the entire story) and share your creation. I will also be writing my story inspired by the prompt, and will upload it to the site when it is complete.
This week I was asked the question in school, “Can you pick any item in the room or the world, and create a story about it? I was then requested to do so; this is what the prompt will be this week. I am going to give you a list of objects in the world, and you are going to create a story about one of them. I think you will find that it can be a real mind workout! (more…)
I wanted to get a quick post out and apologize that I have been unable to get my daily writings published for the past two days. I am currently working on an analytical paper on William Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom! If you have not read it yet, I have one word, WOW! (more…)
Jaime sat on a rock near the river and threw rocks at the fish that came up to eat the bugs from the surface. He never hit any, but he liked to see them scurry back into the depths, or maybe it was the fear he caused them that he really enjoyed. Jaime had been coming down to the river every day after school since he was six years old. He would hang his backpack on the same tree branch, throw his shirt on the same bush, and jump up on the same rock. He would stand up tall, put his hands on his hips, and say, “I am not afraid of you. You will fear me.” (more…)
Ever since I started this blog, I have felt compelled to write every single day. It is a fantastic feeling. It is so hard to write when you get off of a twelve-hour work day, but with this blog I feel obligated to keep the content flowing. So any aspiring writers out there, I suggest starting a blog and making a promise to your community. That will help you keep your word and continue to write, which is the most important part! (more…)
