A Message From A Shitty Writer

A young man gets bored, and decides to write a story. He decides to write a story about the most exciting thing he can imagine. Along the way, he discovers that he isn’t very good at it. He’s created the literary equivalent of a McDonald’s hamburger: it’s food, but not very sustenary; full of shitty […]

What is It That Makes Me Happy as A Writer?

What is it that makes me happy as a writer? That is the question that I am going to attempt to answer today. First, it depends on whether I am writing fiction or nonfiction. What makes me happy as a fiction writer? Well, typically, the process begins with, at least so far, a character or […]

The Rantings of a Crazed, Lunatic Writer

I have not written anything for quite some time. I have been consumed by other things: namely, having fun and relaxing. I have a deep hatred for writing. A deep hatred.

The writing that I want to do, as far as amount and time spent doing it, will, hopefully, if I succeed in what I want to do, make everyone, including myself, doubt my sanity… The more insane I feel when writing, the more successful I’ll know I’m being. I can’t recall as freeing of a feeling […]

How a sane writer who feels insane can know that he is ACTUALLY sane…

When I feel the compulsion to write, I must write, and write, and write, to the point where any sane person would question my sanity. And then, I would question my own sanity, and I would know that I was sane… A compulsive-writer’s dream… My fear of going insane due to getting lost in my imagination… : […]

A compulsive-writer’s dream…

Staying up writing when I should be sleeping has been the story of my life for the past 8 years, or so. Hopefully, this compulsion will turn into a modest standard of living someday… Insightful. Excerpts from my fiction. My poetry. Articles. Where you can financially support me if you so desire (T-shirts included; please […]
