the rundown

Ah. I forgot about having one of these things for Pitchwars. I should have some kind of cheat sheet on myself for anyone interested in taking me on, yeah? Here's the pertinent stuff: I work as a freelance editor. The only way I got here was by learning to be merciless with myself and listening... Continue Reading →

woodland creatures

The hall of antlers was a place Henry only saw in his dreams.   It was staggering to think of how many bodies it had taken to fill that expanse. How much blood, how many lives. In the dream, the question was soft, merely wonder, because awe was the only way to traverse such a... Continue Reading →

in search of someone else

I. she was the smallest spark. a fading star, a wisp of smoke, a gasp, a plume of breath on an icy winter night. she always liked it austere. honest: no ornamentation, no comfort bare bones and brittle waiting for a spring that might never come. in her deep dark forest and its endless black...

An Ode to Donnie Darko

Look, that title is what it is because that's what this is about to be. (Did I trip you up there? I'm sorry. I'm just excited.) This movie did things to my brain. Great, fantastic things, and every time I watch this movie, it reminds me of being young and afraid and realizing just how... Continue Reading →

everything feels better now

Streamlining, rolling every necessary bit of my life into thin, lean cylinders. There’s only so much that fits in a... Continue Reading →

Stars

On the 18th, ten years and one day since Papa died, Gramma followed.  I loved them both very, very much.  ...There isn't a way to express how much.  I got to have more time with my grandmother. Anyone who loses someone who formed and shaped their life with love knows there is no such thing... Continue Reading →

I need to compose a monthly Thing for the official blog, but in all honesty, I’m stumped. So here I go. On February 23, I set out for a life on the road. A seriously, seriously hard life I definitely wasn’t prepared for, but I wanted it all the same. I wanted to know if... Continue Reading →

Marching on

Happy March. From what I can tell driving around the countryside, it seems spring is on the way. Updates have been a bit slow as I am now part of a delivery team driving freight all over the continental US. I edit, I drive, and I try to stay on top of the rest of... Continue Reading →

crossroads

As he passed the sign declaring HELL IS REAL, Tyler laughed. "Ain't nobody who lives like us doesn't know that," he said, glancing at his silent companion. "And sure as shit, you and I know it's true." The thing in the passenger seat slid its one gleaming eye toward him, a slight dip of its... Continue Reading →

the story you hadn’t written yet

I didn’t see you until I saw you, carved out of the end of summer, late September sunshine along the curve of your jaw. Sky blue, clear like the way you saw through everything, All the way to its core. And I started admiring fields of pale grass and the corner of your mouth– that... Continue Reading →
