  • Kayaking Is Not Like Canoeing

    Kayaking Is Not Like Canoeing

    My roommate told me a few days ago that we were going to go do the boat thing. I was like, oh, okay. The waivers I signed on my phone said “canoeing” so I was like, I guess we’re going canoeing. When we got there, I found out it was kayaking, not canoeing. Apparently canoeing […]

    Crushes, A Fiction Collection by Eric Shay Howard, Coming Soon To Paperback

    I received my proof copy of Crushes, my short fiction collection, by me, Eric Shay Howard. This book is already available on Amazon Kindle, but I haven’t had time to get the paperback version ready until now. I’m pretty excited about it!

I’ve never been officially diagnosed with any social anxiety issues or social problems, […]

  • 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 […]

  • Ron Carlson Writes A Story and The Governor’s Ball

    My second semester at the University of Louisville is coming to end. In some ways, it was a better semester than my last. I got to write some more, and I actually got to participate in my first master class. Thank you, Michelle Latiolais! I also learned a lot about myself as a writer this […]
