Jeremiah, Dad’s Dead – Short Story

Warning this work is unedited.

It wasn’t the belly flop or exasperated cry that followed it that alerted me that something was wrong, although in hind’s sight according to Jeremiah I should’ve know that meant something was wrong.

By That Window – Poem

It was by that window

where dreams came true,

where life was fought

and life was lost.

The cherry wood sill,

stained with blood and paint

worn by warm hands, pens,

and carved by relentless tears.

Becoming a 2016 Heartist on WeHeartIt

Over the past couple of months since I’ve been awarded my badge of honor on weheartit, a social network for sharing inspiring, funny, and uplifting quotes and photos.  Since I announced I was honored as a 2016 heartist on Twitter and Instagram,  I’ve had a couple of curious people message me, wondering how I became a heartist.

It was never my intention to become a heartist on weheartit, in fact I only had my account for about six months when I was informed that I given the badge of a heartist.

Disclaimer: Some parts of this post are cross posted both here, on my writing blog, and on my tumblr.  Self love is different for every person, just as it will be for each of your characters.

It’s damaging and harmful to your audience, in this case I recommend you do valiant research if you don’t struggle with or understand self love.

Pathetic Mortals – Flash Fiction

warning: this is work unedited.

Earth wasn’t anything like she expected. It was small, crowded, and so, so dirty.  Trying to fit 7 billion people into an area smaller than her father’s kingdom, ridiculous. She exchanged a disgusted glance with her boyfriend, Adonis, as another one of the horrendously slow four wheeled vehicle humans were so proud of passed by them, spraying them with toxic levels of heavens-knows-what.

“I told you this was a bad idea, Adonis.”

Chit Chat – 2016: The Highlights

 

2016.
An incredible year.
For some of us 2016 was amazing; for others it was terrible and stressful; and for some it was: ‘meh.’
I meant to start this scribble a long while ago and post it on New Year’s Eve but I didn’t feel like the timing was right; now, I think it is. We’ve opened up a new book, full of crisp white pages ready to be filled at out leisure.
Let’s make the most of these pages.
