Bouncing Back

I'm back in my writing groove! We did it! Yeah! Honestly, the whole experience feels much better. I've started off rereading from chapter one. Unsurprisingly, I found a lot of things that could've been written a little better, so I wrote them a little better. This is something that happens virtually every single time I… Continue reading Bouncing Back

Write Tunes – Always Like This

This has been one of my long-time favorites. Maybe it's just the duality in the supposed relationship of the song that's reflected in the music. To put it simply, it's about a relationship in which it's obviously there's no love left, and they both know this but they stay together anyway. Perhaps because they're scared… Continue reading Write Tunes – Always Like This

Dog Days

Come here, little one. Hold still, this won't hurt a bit. Yes, we'll have tons of fun but for now, stay calm and sit. I'm... I'm sorry... It'll be over in a flash. Smack! I'm sorry! I didn't mean to— All better? I know it hurts so please be careful next time, I don't want… Continue reading Dog Days

Hughes Blues Part Four

It's been a weird couple of weeks. And on today, the day that I have finally resolved to be the day that I get back to work on my novel for real, I'd rather not leave you with some short, half-assed update. Instead, in the spirit of looking back to reacquaint myself with Hai, I… Continue reading Hughes Blues Part Four

Write Tunes – Seabass

This one's got some pretty nice lyrics to go with its chill jam. I especially like: "But what's the difference? Luck don't exist here anymore. It's how you choose view everything out of your control." It's sort of simple, but I prefer to think that the strength in those words comes from the simplicity. Anyway,… Continue reading Write Tunes – Seabass

Scenic Route

Addicted to the nothing of sleep and everything it brings, they gave me a new hat to try on and with one yawn, it brought me dreams. It brought me visions of driving, cars rushing past me. The scenery shifts into things that can't be, but forgotten just as easily. Then I awake in my… Continue reading Scenic Route

Write Tunes – Coming Back

I thought the title of this song might be appropriate given that I missed Monday this week. My mom had surgery and by the time I had a minute to write anything I was too tired to spell my name (she's fine by the way). I'm trying really hard to get back to work but… Continue reading Write Tunes – Coming Back

Wake-up Call

Graduate from darkness in three simple flashes. Source unknown. It wakes you up regardless. It reminds you of a camera, three shots you took of yourself while you slept much like a samara's descent. And you watch, examine the stills of someone familiar plunging, disconnected from the remembering. It's not the falling, but the landing… Continue reading Wake-up Call

Write Tunes – U

Finally feeling better. Being sick over the past week really took all the energy out of me. But I'm alive! And it's time to get back to work on Wayfinder. Between work and depression, I haven't touched the novel in a little over a month. And I've basically gotten lost. I lost that deep connection… Continue reading Write Tunes – U

Maintaining Hope

Here's my obligatory political post folks. I know this isn't typically what you come here to read but it's something I think needs to be said. TL;DR Don't be afraid to make your voice heard. Please, please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote. Ya know, getting political has become… Continue reading Maintaining Hope
