  • The Miniaturist Review – Returning Books To My College Professor Part 2

    I graduated from college and moved into a new house with my boyfriend this week. So, naturally, I’ve got a few loose ends to tie up. A few weeks ago, as I was cleaning my room for the move, I mentioned in my blog that I’d found some of my professor’s books that she let me […]

  • Sweetness #9 Review – Returning Books To My College Professor

    I’m normally pretty good at returning books. I mean, I guess. I don’t borrow a lot of books. While cleaning up my room for my upcoming move off campus, I found some books that weren’t mine. They belong to one of my former professors. One of them is Sweetness #9, by Stephan Eirik Clark. I’m […]

  • College Student Goes Crazy Waiting For Final Grades To Post

    I’m sitting here like a good graduating college student, applying for every job I can find that even remotely interests me on Indeed, waiting for my coffee water to boil. I’m doing the best I can to pretend that I’m not worried about my final grades, writing about my upcoming college graduation in all my cover letters, using […]

  • Hurry Please I Want To Know, The Snow Child, and In Our Time

    I’ve been told to write everyday over the summer. Okay, challenge accepted. Classes have been over for about a week and I’ve already written thirty pages of crap. Not bad crap; I’ve gotten pretty good at polishing turds if I do say so myself, but it’s not as hard as marble or even as hard as […]

  • Boys, Widow, and The Zen Thing

    The past month has been a season of workshops and rewrites. I’m close to completing another version of one of my short stories for my creative-writing class; it’s a piece that I’ve been working on for pretty much most of the semester. I’m also planning my summer living arrangements, (hoping, praying, begging the universe that things just […]

  • Emergency, Moonwalk, and Testimony of A Pilot

    I’ve written three short stories this semester. And when I say written, I don’t mean finished. I’ve also started submitting a pretty good story from last semester that I’m pretty proud of to over twenty literary journals. No bites yet, but I think I managed to somehow get a higher tier rejection from Granta Magazine […]
