So I also write fiction, as well as mindless ramblings. Here’s a link to my creative writing blog, and a place where, from time to time, I’ll put quotes or advice about writing that I find help me, and may help you as well.


“Why I Write When I Don’t Feel Like Writing – Because some words are too thick for air.” – Todd Clayton (Thought Catalog)

Learning is nothing more than a philosophical approach to controlling fear.

You know the times you’re the most f*ed up when your friends don’t even notice. Like, you show up with f*ing black eyes and both hands broken and they’re all like, “Yo dude, pass the water?”

You say the secret is the story, but I say the story is the story.

— Junot Diaz

Relate to people. The past decade has totally sucked. For everyone. The country has had post-traumatic stress disorder since 9/11 and 2008 only made it worse. I’ve gone broke a few times during the decade, had a divorce, lost friendships, and have only survived (barely) by being persistent and knowing I had two kids to take care of, and loneliness to fight. Nobody’s perfect. We’re all trying. Show people how you are trying and struggling. Nobody expects you to be a superhero.
