A Few Short Stories: Furniture Project

After several emails and applications, my first fictional-based writing opportunity has come about. I’ve been emailing back and forth with someone for a while now who has requested that I ghost-write a few stories that meet a specific criteria and somehow mention a particular piece of furniture in them throughout. The reasoning behind this being that my new source of income happens to own a furniture shop and have a passion for words so figured that they could use the stories as a unique selling point. Definitely a peculiar selling technique but who am I to judge? Continue reading “A Few Short Stories: Furniture Project”

Make Your Interests Part of Your Daily Routine

Needless to say, writing has taken a backseat in my life for the past two days – this makes me sad, but timekeeping has never been something that I’m good at. This weekend has felt like a rodeo bull and I haven’t known whether I’ve been coming or going for most of it. Work has been long and my hours in the outside world have been Continue reading “Make Your Interests Part of Your Daily Routine”

Directed by Marti Noxon, the lady who created a series as amazing as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I had high hopes for To the Bone.

My First Physically Published Piece: Forgotten Football Giant

After sending countless emails and contacting an endless amount of sources, I managed to get my first article physically published into a newspaper. Small or big, I can’t begin to describe how proud I am of myself for getting my writing shared in the physical form. Additionally, the content of the article is the tale of an even greater success and one that is personal … Continue reading My First Physically Published Piece: Forgotten Football Giant

An Introduction to My Website

I’m sure plenty of the people who read this are already aware of the existence of my website and are more-than-likely wondering why I’m only introducing it now.

My website has been through the mill. It started out as an area to collect and display all the poetry I used to write (that was a bad phase), then it became my portfolio of writing-related work for employers and lately it’s been more Continue reading “An Introduction to My Website”
