Title

In WordPress blog posts, before you add a title, there’s just a gray placeholder that says ‘title,’ and honestly, that was as good a name as any for this. I love titles. Titles for stories are the first thing that can tell you if a story is going to be good or bad. I lucked […]

Director

Last week I talked about how my stories are more similar to plays in terms of how they’re set up and how characters talk, but I realized that also gives the impression that I’m something of a director. I guess a lot of story-writers look like the creators of their own work, and I thought […]

A Play in Words

Before I begin, I just want to say again, apologies for not having anything out in May. It turned out that everyone I know moving away and having to catch up with family takes up more time than I’d like, on top of working. For every one of you that wish I wrote quicker, I […]
