Final Frontier of Fiction

This is my last semester at my current college, and I have to say the experience has been amazing. Although it has, many times, caused me great stress and frustration, I am leaving with a sense of satisfaction. School, and the piece of paper it comes with, was an abstract idea in my mind before…

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…

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 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…

“Is This The End of Zombie Shakespeare?!”

“Homer: (places a dollar on the counter) I’d like a colossal donut, please. Just like the one on the sign. (Homer is given a regular-sized donut.) D’oh! Nuts… That’s false advertising!” I didn’t false advertise! I promise! The short story I promised you guys a few post back is on its way. It might even…

Game of Thrones Season 3: Return of the Kings

Alright Westeros nerds who’s ready for the third season of Game of Thrones? I know I am. Hopefully all you die-hard fans of the TV show have also gotten around to reading the phenomenal books the show is based on by George RR Martin. I watched the first season before starting to read the books…

10 Books I Can’t Wait to Read this Year!

This year is getting off to a slow start in the reading department, (still trying to finish ‘A Feast for Crows’), but there are some books I’m so excited to read! And guess what?! I’m going to tell you about them! Some are old, some are very old, and some aren’t even out yet. Let’s…
