We all lose

Imagine that you’re me. You work in an average job, for an average employer. You love your work, but it is thankless at best. If you’re me you make an average amount of money, maybe slightly above average.  But what you make, you’re thankful for and you make it enough to get by. Now imagine […]

Cherry Blossom 10 Mile

So before we get to today’s post I wanted to let you all know that my awesome friend and blogger Ericka Clay, who runs Tipsy Lit, has seen fit to glitter my blog up. As part of her weekly Glittered by Ericka contest I submitted this post, and much to my surprise, it won. There […]

No More Christmases

In December I did another contest. I didn’t win this one either, but I did get to know a few more writers. I also got to dish out this little story that is very close to my heart. I hope you enjoy it. No More Christmases “I’ll be home for Christmas Mom.” “Oh Mark that’s […]


Back in October I did a contest based on a prompt. I didn’t win the contest but I did enjoy writing the story and I got to know some pretty cool writers out of it. Today I am sharing the story I wrote.  The story remains untitled. They took his wife and children. The children […]

Thank you

I’m not exactly the type who is obsessed with his stats. Okay I’m a little obssessed, but nothing like Lucy’s Football who does a hilarious periodic post on search terms that led people to her site. But I am stoked today, technically it was yesterday. I officially reached 100 followers on WordPress. So this post […]
