Lookin’ Fresh

In West Philadelphia, born and raised… Just kidding. But for reals, come to my site and check out my new layout! It’s awesome, and well over do. The posts are set up in a unique way, but I kind of like it. I’ve always wanted the “Read More” feature to be an option so you…

So This Happened

My first appreciation. It’s not a win or a publication, but it’s the only recognition I’ve ever received for my writing, so I am overjoyed! If you would like to read the story I submitted, click on the Short Stories tab. Much love!

My Sabbatical

Hello all! I don’t know if you can tell, but I’ve run out of Bi-Weekly Book Recommendations! Well, run out of the ones I had stored. This semester has been on a whole other level compared to my first one. I’ve been stretched too thin! Recommendations and a couple of short stories are coming your…

Many Thanks

Thank you to everyone who read ‘Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum.” I’m kind of obsessed with Bigfoot documentaries, if you can’t tell. They are how I spend my Friday nights. It can get wild. So I guess what I am trying to say is…I have no idea where I came up with the idea for the story. Haha,…

Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum Part 4

Once all the tears had subsided, he pulled out a rectangle from his bag that opened like a book, but sat up sideways. I glanced from the books and sci-fi magazines occupying every inch of wall in the cabin, back to the open thing on the desk in an attempt to identify the object. “It’s…

Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum Part 3

I was no longer alone. No matter how long it took Phil to return to the cabin, I knew he would be back. In between visits, on days when I had excessive energy, I would explore the forest of my childhood. Stalking through the trees, I’d watch birds flutter as they chirped their songs, the…

Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum Part 2

Sick to my stomach from berries and leaves, I ventured to a stream not large enough to carry me away in the current, but big enough to have copious amounts of fish. While splashing around in the icy water, attempting to grab a slippery fish, I was suddenly startled by a loud gasp. The noise…

Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum Part 1

It is time the world knew the truth about me. I have been called by many names: skoomcoom, ts’emekwes, stiyaha, Yeti, Sasquatch, and to my great annoyance, Bigfoot. The obvious thing to assume is that a large creature, such as myself, will need properly sized feet to stably balance my body weight. But I digress….

Fiction Galore

As promised late last year…you’ve got some more fiction heading your way. Written by yours truly, a short story by the name of “Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum” is making its way to the Sidney blog. Depending on how long it is, (cause I forgot, haha), the story will either be in two or three parts. Either…

What Sidney’s Been Working On

I haven’t abandoned my original blog! I promise! It might seem that way since I’ve started putting up the Bi-Weekly Book Recommendations and a decent amount of Author Loves, but my blog is still primarily for putting my writing work out there for anyone who might be interested. So you might ask, “Then why, Sidney,…

Smiles

“Empire Lights” was pretty popular last week, and I want to thank everyone who took the time to read all six parts. I hope everyone enjoyed the story of Dani Maxwell-Taylor Evans and Molly. If you follow me on twitter (@sidneymcentyre), then you might have seen my tweet about Jim Hanley’s Universe. I was walking…

UNDERSTANDING OF A CAR CRASH – Part 2

The memory made Charlotte’s blood heat up, her hands shaking the papers they clutched. “Here we go again,” Amelia continued, “Why don’t you tell me how bad of a foster mother I am one more time, and so soon after his death. Why don’t you just rub it in my face.” Now her blood was…
