Writing blues.

9/21/17. Midnight. The house is quiet, but the mind is dishearteningly loud. This is the perfect time to read. Books are calling your name. You start to read and…it bores you. Your mind drifts to your own work. All of those poorly written stories. This is the perfect time to write. But it is all […]

Writing is poop. (“People order our patties?”) No.

Writing is like eating: you ingest stuff, and then you shit stuff back out, and the shit is never as good as the consumptions that lead to the shit in the first place. “Hey, look at this apple! Looks delicious!” (greedily eats it; shit comes out) “Hey, what happened to that apple? Where did all […]

An Attempt at “Easy Writing”

I want to write something easy. So, that’s what this is. It isn’t particularly meaningful, or profound. But at least it’s something. I want to write something. It’s odd to want to write something that isn’t meaningful. But yet, here this is. It’s so much easier than writing something meaningful. It isn’t as meaningful. But […]

On Writing with Nothing to Say

Why do I desire to write when I have nothing to say? Or, rather, why do I have something to say when I don’t desire to write? I constantly find myself in one of these two camps as a writer. Sometimes, such as right now, I desire to write. I open up my works of […]

Getting Sucked Into the World of Writing

It’s time for me to take writing more seriously. I hate writing, because of the headache it gives me. How to begin a piece, elaborate on it, make it coherent, make the language better, more efficient, easier to read, and end it on a witty, snazzy note. The mere sight of a word processor makes […]

Bulleted lists of what I like about writing and what I hate about writing.

Things I hate about writing: – organizing – rereading – editing (the inability to make a decision, having to figure out how to fix something because it doesn’t make sense, and realizing that I have to write A LOT MORE to connect the dots I was attempting to create, but I don’t have the words […]

My fear of going insane due to getting lost in my imagination… : Why my best friend is probably Buzz Lightyears away of me as far as writing is concerned…

Practice is the only way to get better at something. So I must get lost in my writing… (He’s pretty much been telling me that he’s been wanting to do this himself for the past couple of years. I never really understood it until now…) I’m also beginning to understand how I can become a […]

An announcement regarding my writing journey!

Originally posted on The World According to Devin Stevens:
Well, here it is. My first available work to the reading public, an honest project to call my own and which I hope you’ll enjoy. If you have a Kindle, that is. If not, it’s all good. A time may come later when I submit these…

I’m a dedicated writing/comedy type person…

I think that if you start losing sleep to write funny and insightful stuff, you’re pretty dedicated… I’m just glad that I’ve finally figured out how to get this fucking stupid bullshit to a wider internet audience instead of just my immediate friends on Facebook (who would often comment on my posts that I “write […]
