Plain of Jars in Tiny Spoon

Image
I'm always excited to be published, but Tiny Spoon is publishing a very special piece of mine. I love archaeology. There are so many fantastic sites in the world, and while some are highly discussed and explored, the "Plain of Jars" in Laos is a dangerous place, covered in land mines, so study is difficult. My prose-poem piece is part of the inaugural issue of "Tiny Spoon" a magazine exploring bite-sized literature and my piece found a great home. Check it out!

Very Short Stories #1

Image
A writer's community on twitter has a fun exercise with very short story prompts, and I thought I'd share some of mine here: #rando 5 kids get into some stuff. So when I tell you that a whisk in the hallway is not the most #rando thing I've found, trust that you do not want a follow-up question.

Giraffe Pimp

Image
My first published story was a short story inspired by a comic about putting thoughts inside someone's mind with just words (and they say Giraffe Pimp). It was published by a short-lived magazine that was named "New Zenith." I still think it's a fun story, and I'm happy to share it with you all! Follow the link to read it for free. 

We Prepare, My To-Do List

Image
I'm delighted to share two poems that the Gideon Review published. One is "We Prepare," and the other is "My To-Do List." It's free to read them as well, so follow the link and enjoy!

It was a great moment to read that they were accepted and published this morning!






A tiny peek of "My To-Do List":

"5. My n is funky. I need my n. I use it for words like egress. You know, when you write enter and think that’s not a good enough word, what else could I use and you think egress but that’s not all that accurate because egress means exit and you need enter but egress is just a better caliber of word than enter."

Why I Write

Image
I fall asleep in different worlds. My last thoughts are with people that I've created. In quiet moments I see maps and animals and foreign skies. They struggle to live a word at a time.
