Just Awaken Shaken…

I dropped my son off at school... Late. He's late, I'm about to be late. It's a Monday. Things are as relatively as bad as they could be for a non-life threatening scenario of first world problems. And for that reason I'm trying not to stress over something that in the big scheme of things,... Continue Reading →

Goblin’d

Part I Chapter 1 - Bedtime "Time for bed buddy boy." "No Daddy, I don't wanna go to bed!" Edward smiled at his son, "I know you don't Bud, but you have to go to sleep now so we can get up tomorrow and start a new adventure." "An adventure?!" The small boy's eyes lit... Continue Reading →

Like a Punch to the Face…

It's an embarrassing thing to admit, but when I was younger, I used to get picked on. Keep in mind that when I say "picked on" I don't mean I was being teased. No,  it was more like I was getting beat up on a regular schedule. I was being bullied. I know, I know... like I... Continue Reading →

My Ambitions as a Writer

Stay diligent. Stay focused. Do not succumb to self pity or doubt. That nagging feeling in the back of your mind, the one that whispers to you "Give up." The one that so plainly points out the irrationality of your actions. The one so adamant to convince you that, you are merely wasting time you... Continue Reading →

Honesty in Writing

Life is chock-full of deception. Little white lies, black fibs and colorless lies of omission are all over the place. You tell people they look nice when they don't, you tell them you had fun when you didn't,  and for the most part these are harmless half-truths, not even full-blown lies really. These everyday dishonesties... Continue Reading →

The Desire to be Better

I'm decent. And by that I mean, I am a decent human being. I'm a decent father, a decent son, a decent husband, even a decent writer, but the thing is, I desire to be better. I can't live with decent. I need more. I have always been this way. You could call it being ambitious. I... Continue Reading →

The Great Turtle Spirit

When I was growing up I was in love with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved the toys, I loved the cartoon, I loved the movies. So needless to say once I had a son, I wasted no time in reliving my childhood by brainwashing him into joining my twisted little turtle cult. Coincidentally,... Continue Reading →

Name Collecting

What's in a name? In fiction writing, I believe a character's name is the most important part of their being. A character's name is its soul, it is the essence of who that character is, or who they are to become. For my current project I basically took an old nickname and built a character around it, pretty soon... Continue Reading →

Stranger than Fiction

I fancy myself a fiction writer. Which is to say, if given the opportunity between spending the day writing reality based stories or spending the day writing fantastical made up epics, I'd choose epics every time. But I've come to find out very recently, that I may be better at writing non-fiction than I am... Continue Reading →
