Trying to be relevant

I haven't posted in probably over a week, I can't seem to find the inspiration to write a captivating well articulated blog post. I've had the moments to draw from, yesterday alone was the premise for a good post but I can't seem to make the words flow. I will post eventually about the three…

Attention! Attention!

Now that I have your attention, my favorite band released their sixth studio album at midnight. It's very different from anything they have ever done before, part of me is happy and proud of them for branching out another part of me wants to put on their fifth album and drown out the new one…

Film

The above photo isn't very crisp, it doesn't have a sharp vivid look to it. It almost appears grainy and a little blurry. It's obvious it's not digital, its film and an old film camera a Minolta that I picked up years ago at an antique store for 75 dollars filters, a flash and extra…

Six Day Week

I've had a very long work week and it's made me not really feel like writing. I've been tired and stressed trying to make it through each day. It makes me irritable and I want to scream and just be all around horrible. What keeps me from acting like a two-year old throwing a temper…

Faking it (My rejection)

I recently submitted an essay to an online magazine, it was rejected. Here is that submission.     Writing is one of those things you either love to do or hate to do, unfortunately I love to do it. I still remember the first story I ever wrote, I was in second grade and we…

Little Women, The Old Man and The Sea, The Great Gatsby, The list goes on and on. All these books have one thing in common they are classics, pieces of American literature that have managed to carve a special place in literary history making a mark that has endured for decades. Some of us are…

Dialogue (Words Are Hard)

Words we speak them everyday, we create dialogue effortlessly. It isn't until we try to write those conversations out that we realize it is not easy.  I used to think my trouble with dialogue was just me, that maybe I couldn't write like I thought. But after reading Stephen King's On Writing I realized two…

Toxic Relationships

I'm taking a diversion from my usual posts about writing to dive into something that is a bit more personal, toxic relationships. I've been in more than a few and too blind to see it until I was in a good one. These types of relationships come in many forms, for me it was being…

A Novel Idea

A novel is a detailed work of fiction, more or less. Recently I decided that maybe starting off with a novel was not the best idea, instead I have decided to write a story it will be at the most 50 pages long and not as detailed or drawn out as a novel. This comes…
