Encounters with Old Gods

This is an idea I came up with last night, kind of on the fly. I'm sure my inspiration came from something I saw or read once, but it's a short little piece about the Greek Olympian gods in a modern setting, what I think they would be doing if they were to be real people in a real city. I like how this one turned out and I'm kinda proud of it at the moment.


Didn’t You Know?

I started this like a month ago and I'm tired of trying to write it so I kind of just did whatever with the ending, but I liked the premise of it. If I didn't post it now it was never gonna get finished, so here it is.

Folk, The Prologue

This is the beginning of a much older project I started a few years ago, and reading back on it I was actually kind of laughing at myself because I can't take it seriously. I don't know if I have quite the touch for fantasy that I used to, or maybe it's just all been done before. But I only got about 20 pages into this one before I abandoned it, and it's been sitting in my docs untouched for years. I went back and edited a few things just for fun, and I figured I'd share this.

Across A Thousand Oceans Excerpt

It's been a month since I posted anything, so for the sake of consistency I'm posting another excerpt from a longer project I'm working on called Across A Thousand Oceans, about two princes from neighboring kingdoms. I am also working on another short story I hope to have finished and posted soon.

The Killers’ Club Prologue

The prologue to a novel I'm working on called The Killers' Club, a thriller about a young high school graduate and her group of friends who decide to murder their friend's rapist. I'm really excited about this one.

Mercy (The Skin Stealer, revamped)

The final project for my Creative Writing class this semester was to edit one of the other stories we'd written over the course of the class, and I chose The Skin Stealer. I added more to it and gave it a new title, and this is the final version. I like how it turned out.

Foiled by writer’s block (again)

I absolutely for the life of me cannot figure out how to end Shattered Glass. It's coming along very slowly, but I'm stuck on the ending and little nuances and details, and I can't figure out how to move forward. I'm actually open to suggestions at this point if anyone wants to collaborate and co-write... Continue Reading →

(Two young men sitting on an empty Chicago beach)

I was digging through my computer and I found this. It was originally a piece I wrote during my freshman year for an Intro to Theatre class (the assignment had something to do with dialogue and script-writing) but I played around with it and edited it some more. I'm still working on the final chapter of Shattered Glass, but no idea when I'll actually finish it because I'm the worst.
