John shook the bars of his cell. "Let me go! Liberarme!"

A door opened at the end of the hall. A man in dirty clothes stepped out. He had a gun hanging from his belt. "Silencio!" the man said. He tapped his gun and closed the door. John thought he saw his brother, Brian, in the room.

John dug into the ground with his bare hands.

“My people buried the mask deep, John. Here.” Niru handed John a shovel. John looked up at the hot Pacific sun and wiped his brow. They dug.

My assignment for this class was to experiment with story structure while maintaining escalating tension. The plot had to involve a visit to the doctor. So, I sat at my desk and let my mind soar. This story is the result.

Jade Bonner wanted a new video game, her favorite science documentary, and water. She awoke, memory churning, to see her alarm clock blinking.

In February of 2016, I was taking a creative writing course where we attempted to create characters. One assignment was to take two characters from our favorite book, movie, or TV show, and put them in a scene with a completely new and different setting. I chose two characters from a mid 1960s TV show called Lost In Space. My characters are based on Dr. Smith and the Robot.

Clack! Clack! Clack! The car moved slowly upwards. At the top of the arc, the car seemed to stop. Clack! She stared into the endless void of blue. Her eyes tried to lock on to any detail but there was none. It seemed as if she was stuck in time.

As I listened to the conversation, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. A young woman was talking to an older woman. "I just can't do it," the younger woman said. "No matter how much you explain, I will never understand."

Jack bent the window blinds and peered outside. A tall woman in a business suit stood outside the front door of the house. She carried a large envelope. It was late afternoon. The sun hung behind her and cast her silhouette against the window. The suburban street was quite. The houses all in a row were still and dark – the owners not yet home from rush hour. The door bell rang again.

“Who it is?” Jack yelled through the closed window.

I wrote this poem(?) in my early teenage years before high school. These thoughts helped me through many difficult times throughout my entire life. In 1992, I took that old, tattered piece of notebook paper I had held onto for so many years and transcribed it in to a word processing document. That document, along with others, has been copied from computer to computer, from disk to tape back to disk again ever since. The file still has the original creation date on it! 9/17/1992 11:23PM

Today, I post it here for everyone to read. Be well, and may you always find your path.

At times during the 1990s, I would jot down thoughts and ideas. I have snippets of stories and poems scattered across various boxes and digital medium. I recently found an archive of mine from 2000. Most of what I wrote is shit, but I sort of like this one. My poetry(?) tends to be abstract and sometimes silly. This one is open to interpretation.

I wrote this story one day at work. I was bored. Totally, completely bored. You have no idea how mind boggling bored I was. The company I worked for would often run out of work for us to do. I was reading an article on the web about Near Earth Asteroids and, as I had been reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy © 1981 by Douglas Adams, my mind started to wonder in a particular, peculiar direction.

I wrote this story back in 1993 in college. I was taking an English writing class and the assignment was to compare and contrast three adjectives: frenetic, benevolent, and malicious. However, I chose to be a bit more creative than most. Here is the story I turned in. I got an A.
