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…

Keeping Up With The Joneses

A couple of months ago I started following a few travel and cooking blogs that interested me. Every time I check my email, I have two or more posts from these blogs, and I always think to myself, “Well, shit. There is no way I could post that much.” I’ve learned over the last couple…

Endless Editing Summer

It’s time. It has finally happened. I have real days off!!! I’ve finished my initial school goal, and my days off are no longer spent in classes from early AM to late PM. At this point, I have been in classes so long that I was a little at sea with what to do with…

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!

Description And Subscription

Everyone here knows how I feel about giving writing advice…however, I do like to share some tricks I use to make my writing more tangible, aromatic, sightly, and (hopefully) believable. The particular trick I am talking about today I think is an old one, but I also think it makes certain writers feel uncomfortable… I…

Motivation: Food and Books

The truth is this: wonderful books inspire me to write. However, food plays a big role in my writing process. No jokes, my loves. Food is the foundation of my writing process. It is the unsung hero of word upon word of storytelling. Different foods are useful for different things in my writing process. For…

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I’ve been in a serious cleaning kick since last semester ended. I’m sure everyone gets to that moment when they feel like they have too much shit cluttering every piece of space in their room/apartment. I’ve thrown out clothes, old electronics, and–here’s the kicker, my peeps–I’ve decided to throw out my old writing journals from…

Post On the Run

I was asked by Aya from BookLoveBabbles to give some advice about how to write a quick post with quality. I like to keep my readers involved even if I don’t have a whole lot of time (like when I’m in school), so I usually will post small updates on what I’m doing, and what…

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…
