Starchild | A Poem

I wrote this during NaPoWriMo this past spring. It’s probably one of my favorites. =) Where have you come from, child of stars? What power glows in that beating heart? What far-off sun do you call home? What songs are coursing in your bones? Why do you wander here, lost …

Summer 2018 || Wrap-Up

Well, I’m back. Hello again! I know I haven’t blogged very much this summer, so I’m just going to do a wrap-up post for the entire summer and hopefully that will also serve as explanation for why I’ve been rather absent. Things That Happened   I wrote a book | …

Those Who Know My Name | A Short Story

Guys guys guys guess what! It’s been ages since I posted anything fiction… but finally I have a new short story to share! And it was actually published on Story516, my friend Zach Sollie’s new website. It was inspired by friendship and coffee shop aesthetics and Story516’s theme word for …

It’s a rather quirky, whimsical illustration of how technology is moving forward, of our collective surprise as again and again “you see science fiction ain’t fiction no more.” That’s why it caught me by surprise when …

Spring In Florida | NaPoWriMo Week Four

Hard to believe it’s the last week–last day, actually–of this year’s NaPoWriMo. It always goes by so fast. I’ve grown up in Florida, but it feels like I’m just now beginning to appreciate the beauty that is my state. And as much as I can’t wait to go to school …

Words Like Ripples | NaPoWriMo Week Three

I was very conflicted on which poem to post this week. Honestly, most of what I wrote wasn’t that great, or else not something I’d ever share. The business of writers is words; but words need to have something behind them. You can’t just write for the sake of “being …
