Update & Plans

Hi everyone, first of all I just wanted to say: thank you so much for all the feedback! This blog is already doing much better than I initially thought it would, and that means so much to me.

Unfortunately I’m making this post to say content will slightly slow down in the upcoming weeks due to finals and Spring Break travelling. If any of y’all are going to AWP in Portland, I’ll see ya there!

Right now my plan is to finish up a book review and post that, as well as post some work I did this most recent term. Hopefully I’ll find time in the upcoming term to produce some more up-to-date work and keep the content releases somewhat steady.

That’s all for now. Thank you again for the continued support!<3

I don’t usually write personal essays, but I’m pretty proud of this one.

Another piece from Intro to Creative Writing. The prompt we were given was “It’s too wonderful for me.”

This piece is one of the few times I’ve written in first person point of view. It also features two characters from one of my larger projects, but you don’t need to know any background to understand what’s happening here.

“Night of The Dancing Dame” – Drabble

Starting off with a very short piece, here’s something I wrote in Intro to Creative Writing last term. For this exercise, the teacher instructed us to make the familiar feel strange, or make the strange feel familiar. I went with the former. Can you guess what’s being described?

Is This Thing On?

Hi all, and welcome to my new writing blog! Give yourself a moment to let the imaginary fanfare and cheers die down….And now continue reading.

To be honest, I have no idea how this all will work out. I’ve become accustom to sites like Tumblr when it comes to blogging, and the last time I used WordPress was in high school. Even so, I want this blog to at least be something, you know?
