Welcome to my writing page
Stories published one chapter at a time
This is where I share,
the truest parts of myself,
and what I think I know,
That Ray of Light
Something stirs deep within me.
Not a crashing wave,
but a ripping undertow,
that pulls me toward the black depths of the ocean.
from the floor of the abyssal plain,
with the weight of the sea on my shoulders,
and marine snow between my toes,
for that ray of light,
we all seek.
I'm scared, but invigorated,
alone, but connected,
lost, but at peace.
Answering the Call
May 13th, 2021 · Nonfiction
I’m typing on my mechanical keyboard with the dense Oregon forest as my backdrop. It’s early morning, just after sunrise. I’ve spent some time writing, but mostly I’ve been thinking… Planning.
Sometimes the answer hides in plain sight, closer than you think to look. Other times, you have to venture far from home to find it.
Follow me, my wife (Shelby), and my dog (Skutull) as we travel indefinitely around the world. I document our travels through the lens of a writer searching for insights into our shared pursuit to find meaning in life.
Lost in a Sea of Words
Writing is difficult. There's grammar, prose, dialog, and all the other literary elements you have to wrangle, but that's not the hardest part.
People read stories they relate to. If you want to write those stories, you have to be vulnerable, honest, and self-reflective to a degree that's both challenging to achieve, and uncomfortable to attempt.
This collection of stories is my journal as I venture down the path of an author.
