A Solid Foundation: What Comes Next? · 8:47pm June 19th

Hey everyone!

If you’re reading this, then it means you’re done reading the last chapter of A Solid Foundation. If not, then you should definitely go do that first. Go on. I’ll wait.

I have some thoughts I want to share about writing this story and what comes next but, it all can come after the line break.


Back? 

Cool. 

So! What did you think?

So what's the next story? · 8:15pm Aug 6th, 2021

If you finished reading Secondhand Laughter, then you're probably wondering what's next? Or maybe you're not. Maybe you read it and you're about ready for me to stop writing.

Well, this blog post has something to make either of you happy.

Upcoming Story Alert: Secondhand Laughter · 8:48pm Jul 23rd, 2021

Hi everyone! 

If you've been following me then you've probably noticed that today I published the last chapter of The Opening Act. In fact, chances are that you found this blog post through the Author's Note of that chapter. In any case, the way that chapter ends is the way I felt that story needed to end. However, it is only the beginning of what I had planned, the opening act, if you will.

Do you think of me? (Poem) · 3:26pm Jul 21st, 2021

Is it hate or is it disgust when you think of me? If you think of me at all. I wonder if the past still lives in you—the way it grips in me. Or did it die, forever long? And, if so, did anyone take time to grieve?

I hate the way you treat my memory. The way I fear you treat my memory, to be fair. I don’t know you, you don’t know me. Strangers now across state lines. Across strange lives. Pendicular per the fact that once we crossed and never more shall meet.

Soundless Memory (Poem) · 9:38pm Jul 5th, 2021

I don’t remember wedding bells
and I doubt I ever will.
I recall neither the organ,
nor the clicking of your heels.
I hear no congratulations,
hear no pastor, hear no spiel.
Burnt sheet music on a stand.
Rinse it out. Watch the notes spill.


You smile. I can’t read lips.
You talk. The deafness grips.

Tears flow in unknown tongues,
as you walk down the aisle.
I’m not sure how it sounded.
I haven’t for a while.

What’s everyone been reading? · 6:25pm Jul 3rd, 2021

I’m just curious.

Online, I’ve been re-reading all of Who We Become by Krickis. Shocker, I’m sure. I got stuck on Playing House for personal reasons but now that I’m done with that one I’ve been plowing through Finding Home.

Echoless (A Poem) · 10:37pm Jul 1st, 2021

I'm locked inside a chamber
and I can't get out.
I swear I had a voice once
but, I'm filled with doubt.
I'm yelling and I'm screaming
but, I hear no shout.

No melody. No melody.
The echo won't rebound.
No memory. No memory.
No proof I made a sound.
