  • Writing short fiction was definitely a huge challenge for me. Out of all the genres that we covered over the semester, short story writing seemed to be the most difficult for me.  Making up characters and putting them into a story is harder than it looks.  I have always stuck to poetry because that’s what […]

  • Gilbert White lives in a brownstone apartment with a decent view of Central Park. He does not have any friends or family and is a rather lonely old man. He collects disability checks and spends his days walking through the park. He looks forward to these walks and enjoys the exercise and the fresh air. […]

  • In the beginning there was a paradise where everything was created in a series of two. This paradise was operated by a system of duplicate constructions. There was a double of every animal and insect. All the plants were dually mounted from the root, linked as allies and connected with loyalty and love, creating a […]

    Jenny, There’s no hard feelings. I did feel offended even though it’s just Saadya being Saadya. I believe that Truth-Telling doesn’t always have to be in the form of smug comments and negative remarks especially in a learning environment. It’s not always helpful. However, that is his way of doing things which not all students […]

    Hey Richard, your story is excellent! I love what you did with ending in the beginning. You started at the end, which Poe would say is “where all good works of art should begin”. So Mark is a teacher who lost this girl to another man and wants to prove himself a hero to get […]

  • Hi Jenny. My Cuny email is snelson103@qc.cuny.edu. Thanks for the links you gave. I’m going to start doing some research on this also. I know I’ve sent my poetry out to sites before and no one has ever responded back to me. It’s quite frustrating.

    Sorry I called your comment a shpeal. I’m defensive because I tried really hard on this story and all i see see besides one positive sentence in your comments is negativity. What I took from the professors comment was that my story didn’t show the positive side of humankind but I clarified that was the […]

    Thanks Rachel!! I really appreciate your kind words

    Saadya,I have never read any biblical stories on how the world began. I’m not into religion and I barely know my mythology. I just like to write and try new things and experiment. I’m more of a poet than a story teller. This is my first story ever. I find it interesting though that everyone […]

    Jenny, That song is weird. I haven’t heard it before but it’s definitely interesting. I think maybe my message is cloudy but I wanted the tone to be adverse. Human creativity doesn’t play a role in my story. It’s supposed to be simplistic. I wanted to write about the beginnings of the human race, although […]

    Thanks!

  • This is the complete story. Hope you like it!   In the beginning there was a Paradise where everything was created in a series of two. This Paradise was operated by a system of duplicate constructions. There was a double of every animal and insect. All the plants were dually mounted from the root, linked […]

    Thanks guys. This is my first short story ever. I’m hoping I can tie the end together in a way that makes a difference. I’m still thinking about it. I’m glad it’s being received well though. Thanks for reading!

    Poor Rex..It’s like everyone gave up on him because he’s old and lifeless. And so sad that Rex is deaf. I’ve always wondered what animals are thinking. I know they feel emotional connections and love but in their own way. When my dog died a few years ago, she was only 3. She died of […]

    This story is so sad. I think it’s really coming together and I although I don’t want Rex to die, I can’t wait to see where this goes. I’m rooting for a happy ending though =)

    Btw, I thought this story was going somewhere completely different before I read on. I thought Mark was Charlie for a second and he was talking to himself.

  • samantha commented on the blog post Second Draft 6 years ago

    Mark reminds me of Dexter but less organized and more driven by his own personal passion than by the means of justice. Does mark do this a lot? Does he look for scum on a regular basis and kill them? You don’t wan’t it to be exactly like Dexter but maybe you can give some […]
