NaNoWriMo Starts!

It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy trying to get my first novel done before November so I can participate in NaNoWriMo. Yesterday, I completed the first draft of my first novel just in time. Now, I'm working on my second novel. It's basically a story about a man who lives next... Continue Reading →

The Invisible Flame

I'm standing at an alter in a dank, shadow filled church. The alter is off to the side, in an especially tucked away corner. There are a few candles sitting on the dusty white cloth draped across it. Only about half of the candles are lit and it seems like they're going out one by... Continue Reading →

New Book Out Today!

In late 2016, depression hit me hard. Everything about my life made me feel stuck. I hadn't made any sort of art in two years. It had been at least three years since my last show.

It's loosely based on a dream I had about my grandfather just after he died. Anyway,... Continue Reading →

New Poems

The time in between books seems so long at first, but it goes by quickly. Here are some poems I wrote this week. They're not the same style as what will be in my next collection, but I think it will be cool to read these now, and then again after finishing the journey that... Continue Reading →

When Titans Pass

I've been writing poetry for something like 20 years now.  I started writing as a young boy in Hawaii and continued as I traveled the U.S. with my parents as my father hopped from job to job. It helped me express the loneliness and what comes with moving around a lot. These days, though, I... Continue Reading →

Poems from the Stream Two

I wrote more in one hour this time than I did in the entire stream last session! I had to cut it early, but I think I got some alright stuff. I was in a weird mood, so some of this is kind of playful. Posting this kind of unpolished work is a bit more... Continue Reading →
