Creative Characters, Inc. is how I used to imagine the process of choosing a character. Five Moons Ago is a late-night conversation involving a man who cannot reconcile himself with his past. The Language of Heartache attempts to capture the abstract thoughts of bad relationships from the perspective of one person in the relationship and contains both poetry and prose. Formerly Anecdotes of the English Language. { f a v o r i t e } Living is an old short story about a girl who is ill and a boy who is kind. (will be revised) (written for school) Palate explores a fatal car crash through a person's sense of taste. (poorly written) Perspective follows one girl from six (possibly seven in the future) different viewpoints. { f a v o r i t e } Snedronningen tells the story of the Snow Queen (by Hans Christian Andersen) from a different perspective. (written for school) Tremors chronicles the everyday conversations from the perspective of the three main characters. (short chapters completely of dialogue) (completed: 1.27.16) you & i follows the story of a young couple. (began 11.1.15; completed 6.20.16)

{ i n p r o g r e s s }

Bricolage is a collection of oneshots I have written. (updates: sporadic) Picturesque is the rewrite of Living. (began 7.4.16)

{ o n h o l d }

Tremble is the companion to Tremors, written in a regular format. (updates: biweekly) (began 9.12.15) (return: 2017/2018)

{ u p c o m i n g }

At Odd Hours is a companion short story to you & i, told from Finn's point-of-view. (release: February 14, 2017) Paper Thin will feature a girl with anorexia, bulimia, and a ton of other problems. (release: ???) Pretense will follow Wayne after the events of Picturesque. (release: ???) Renegade will be the spinoff of War Crimes, a novella featuring the aftermath of certain events. (release: ???) Snowfall will be the rewrite of Snedronningen. (release: ???) War Crimes will chronicle the life of a pirate as he delves into his newfound life as a prince. (release: June 2017)
