All That’s Left (a short story)

April 18, 2014 Leave a comment

Homing PigeonThis was a fun little story I wrote some years ago. Though I’ve never been an atheist, I thought it would be interesting to see what it might be like if, in light of more and more aggressive scientific advancements, discoveries, and secular policies, God has ceased to be God and must now live the rest of his life as a normal human. And no, he’s not Morgan Freeman.

A random creation myth. Just for fun.

September 27, 2013 3 comments

creation-of-the-universeThere was only the Primal Chaos. All possibilities existing simultaneously, fathomless, unyielding, yet beautiful.  After an age, a single thought was randomly generated from the milieu then self-perpetuated itself into a full consciousness.  Calling Itself the Living Name, It was the first to separate from the Chaos using a relentless will that only It possessed. After an eternity of observing and discerning the Primal Chaos from which It came, the Living Name learnt and mastered the Language then used it to impose order, fashioning chaos into harmony.

Revision time!

When I started this blog a few years ago I used it to publish Between Twilights and Shadows, a novel I wrote back in high school. At the time I was really in to graphic novels so I decided to write a super hero story of my own.  In fact, a friend of mine practically commanded me to create a blog to exhibit it, and thus was born EMBRYO.

Men watch porn; women just read it.

September 20, 2012 Leave a comment

We’re all familiar with the idea of a married guy who must hide his trove of porn from the wife but keeps it stashed away for those rainy nights. Some men have become so proficient at hiding porn that, as Chris Rock once said, they’ve practically become Batman, securing it away in a secret cave beneath their house. Read more…

100 best first lines from novels

August 13, 2011 Leave a comment

Back in 2010 the American Book Review compiled a list of the best openings in literature. Yeah, I know it was released a year ago, but I figured it’s something this blog should have regardless. Nothing from Stephenie Meyer made the cut, surprising no one.

A pocket story: When the Devil Came

July 10, 2011 Leave a comment

One day the Devil paid the small town of Genevieve a visit. The Devil did not interfere with anyone, except give patronage to a small eatery by ordering himself a breakfast. He tipped well and was on his way. However, the local church learnt of his presence and set about informing the townsfolk. Immediately, there was wide spread panic; shops closed down, husbands soothed their wives, and mothers held their babes so tight they nearly smothered them.

He gazed at her from across the soccer field. Even though his myopia hindered his vision, he was still able to see her beauty. His oversized glasses simply enhanced the effect. Ryan was in love with her. He always was, yet he never had the guts to tell her. Today that would all change; today he would proclaim his feelings for her. Read more…

I once wrote a poem, and now I hate poetry because of it.

June 18, 2011 Leave a comment

At one point I saw myself becoming a master of eloquence, weaving sentences together to create delightful tapestries of words in the form of poetry. But then I took a creative writing class while in university. That’s probably the worst thing you can do if you want to be a writer.
