A Perfectly Reasonable Letter from Your Emotionally Abusive Boyfriend

Unfortunately inspired by real events. Dear Meg, It looks like you’ll be working late tonight as you seem to do every night now, so we won’t get to address this matter in person. However, this is something I need to bring to your immediate attention. The very young and attractive couple’s therapist that I picked out…

Critique Me!

In the spirit of Nanowrimo, and just generally wanting to finish and follow through on something, I’m ready to start querying literary agents about one of my projects, a fictional teen novel by the 15 year old protagonist Margaret May. The narrative would take the form of a journal, and it would be a very…

So in another three years expect a ‘swampy-tonk electro pop’ bluesy compilation called “Underworld,” filled with songs…

Your New Drama-Free Roommate Has Arrived

Dear Craigslist, I got tired of responding to housing ads so I am just going to post about myself and wait for the offers to come rolling in. I am a 27 year old artist looking for housing. I’ve spent the past four years living in hostels, friend’s apartments, my tent, my car, my parent’s…

The Backyard

Growing up, my backyard was my sanctuary. Twelve acres of woods, fields, and rambling stone walls were mine to enjoy as I pleased.
