A Small Change To Make Everyone Happier

I think we’ve been living with a mistake, but I don’t know who to go to so that it will get corrected.  Look at this: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ.  Do you see it?  It’s near the end.  It’s the X and the Y.  They should be flipped around. It’s crazy, right?  This is something so basic we learn […]

A Way of Life

I. One thing Sarah hates about Todd is that he’s always late. She’s been sitting at McKinney’s for half an hour. She’s watching a basketball game between Duke and Kentucky, not quite sure which team is which. A man with a neatly trimmed goatee and too much Calvin Klein is trying to explain the intricacies […]

Back, Into The Light (Part 1)

I’ve wanted to try writing fantasy again, and I’ve also wanted to write a serialized story. So here it is, my serialized fantasy story! Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Without further ado, onto Part 1! Back, Into The Light (Part 1) “Tell me a secret. Something you’ve never told anyone.” Even when he whispered, the gravelly heaviness […]

An Errand

Jack walked into the drug store not really remembering why he was there.  I really need to start writing stuff down, he thought.  I’m getting old, but he didn’t believe that was the reason.  He was only forty, still a little young for senility. She was at the counter again.  She was the best looking woman, or maybe girl, Jack had […]

Let That Go (Play Excerpt)

I was an idiot when I was 16. I talked like I knew everything, but I had no clue about 99.9999% of the world that existed outside of my small high school. I didn’t understand how to put myself in the shoes of people who weren’t like me- girls, gay students, and others that didn’t […]

RIP C. Martin Croker

I loved going over to my grandfather’s house when I was a kid. He’s 6’4″, and was this larger than life man who gave my brothers and I as much candy and toys as we could handle. To top it off, he had cable, a luxury that my family couldn’t afford. We would arrive at […]

Welcome to the State of Nature

A man was walking along by himself on a dusty road.  Everything around was brown.  The dirt, the rocks and the trees were brown.  Even the sky had a brownish tint to it.  The man was naked except for a neck tie, a very long neck tie.  It went down to his knees.  It was […]


If you’re not one for introductions, just skip to below the line.  I’ve been posting a lot about my divorce and depression lately.  I want to post something different, but I’m not in a good place to write anything different.  So, I thought I’d post something I wrote a little while ago for a short […]

Responsible Citizen: In Defense of Gohan

  A few months ago, Omar Holmon of Black Nerd Problems wrote an excellent article about Gohan’s choices in life. Entitled, “An Open Letter to Gohan: You Gonna Stop Being Trash Anytime Soon or Nah?”, Holmon let us know exactly how he feels about the son of Earth’s greatest hero. He writes, Gohan was voted […]

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

A couple of years ago, I wrote a book.  It’s not much of a book.  It’s even short compared to the ones my daughter and I read together, but it’s a real book.  I wrote it to help a friend with breast cancer.  Here’s what I wrote in the introduction: A short time ago, a […]
