the tiny bug

A bug was bothering me today. It irritated me endlessly. I tried to ignore it. Honestly I did, but it would not go away. Not matter how much I wanted it to leave me alone, it was still there. Continue reading


Me and Lefty McGee

Everything’s all set, but you need to know that I’m gonna miss my kidney. I’ve had that particular kidney since birth and have grown rather fond of it. Sure, I never gave it a name but now that it’s gone I shall call him Lefty McGee. That’s called irony because those guys removed my right kidney. They were careful when they did it, I just wish they had been as careful sewing me up afterwards. It’s still tender and red around the incision. I’m sure a little antibacterial ointment will stop the puss from oozing out of it. Continue reading

It Doesn’t Work That Way – Original Fiction

It has been a while since I posted. New job, new schedule and I am still getting adjusted.

Anyway, here is a short story I wrote for my college publication. There was around 30 submissions and they only chose 5. I was one of the 5! 🙂

And yes, the ending was left purposely ambiguous so that anyone can relate.

Enjoy.

 

It Doesn’t Work That Way

My knees buckle from exhaustion as I take a half-step backwards to steady myself. The fierce attacks from the many snarling faces have momentarily stopped and all I can think of is a nursey rhyme my mother sang to me. A rhyme meant to shield me from the evils of everything. An innocent lie told to her child. One that is meaningless now.

In this infinite white room I take a deep breath to steady my nerves and steel myself for the next attack. My strong right hand grasps the club so tight that my hands shake and my bleeding knuckles turn white. The coarse wood feels powerful beneath my soft palms. Quick strikes from the club have barely protected me thus far. In my weaker left hand I struggle to maintain a grip on the heavy rock. Its great weight has slowed my defense, yet its great weight has stopped many of the assaults. The simple Neanderthal tools are my only weapons to ward off the onslaught. They are better than a mother’s lying rhymes. Continue reading


The Audacity of Writing in Today’s World

I read this article. This one here by Bryan Hutchinson at Positive Writer. And I really liked the article. I like what he said about the audacity of being a writer.

bold writer

The reason I like it is that in these upside down modern times people are rarely audacious anymore. No one really stands up and speaks their mind. It seems everywhere I turn, someone is offended by something. People, on average, tend to shy away from their true feelings on subjects when in public. The fear of being shamed or ridiculed has made humanity cower in a corner and only speak their mind in small circles of close friends and family.

So this begs me to ask the question: are writers audacious anymore? Are there any writers out there writing against the flow of the PC River that flows through our lives daily?  Continue reading
