"Harry McGilligan" has been deleted! But I am posting a new mystery novel entitled "One Way to Get Out of Gym." I have also been posting a collection of memoirs called "Slices of Life." So check those out! (And if you want to know more about why "Harry" was deleted, click on the link to the story to see a letter I wrote explaining why.)

Hello! My name is Dylan. Of course, I have been writing formally for school since I was in Preschool, but I hadn't begun creative writing until the beginning of January when I had a story idea. And I fell in love. Since then, I have wanted to find a site to put some of my writing up on, which brought me here! I knew that I could have written for FanFiction.net, but I wanted my writing ideas to be completely original and all mine. Thus I am here. I hope you enjoy what that I put out!

Novels:
-"Harry McGilligan", about a deli worker who finds his boss murdered. -- DELETED
"One Way to Get Out of Gym", written for NaNoWriMo 2009, it is about a murdered gym teacher.

Short stories ("One-shots"):
-"Garma", about a girl's grandmother
-"The Purr of the Beast", about a mother and son walking through a forest.
-"Hunting for the Stars of Gemini", which I really can't explain!
-"The Statues Speak to Me", about a homeless teen with a mental disease--Winner of the December 2009 Campanella Award.
-"What I Am", about a kid explaining who they are.
-"Collard Greens", about a kid named Mike who can't cry. Metaphors ensue.Poems:

Poetry
"The Last Thing He Heard"
"The Missing Rocking Chair"
"Nutella"
"Autumn Breeze"
"He Felt It All"

Short Story Collaborations
-"Skulls in the Closet", about a man who makes a New Year's resolution: he's going to stop digging up skulls from graves. Winner of SKoW prompt contest. Featured on A Drop of Romeo. -- Written with Morine.
-"Seahorse Love", about two sea horses who fall in love. -- Written with Morine.

I also am posting a collection of memoirs entitled "Slices of Life."

Bubble Bath Therapy reviews
It's been a while since I've let the water run, taken my large bottle of soap down from the closet, poured the fluid into the tub, let it suds up. There was a time I'd take bubble baths all the time. It's been six months since I stopped. I'm okay now, but I needed a lot of baths, and then six months without them, to figure out where things went wrong and to rethink my naïveté.
