Writing is something that I’ve always enjoyed doing. When I was little, I used to handwrite fictional sports stories. That was before I was on social media. I’d share my creation exclusively with my family, who’d always compliment me on how good of a writer I was. As I grew up, I stopped writing my own stories, and instead shifted my writing talents towards another passion of mine; movies. I started out writing comic book movie news for ComicBookMovie.com and wrote movie reviews for (the new defunct) Not Yet Rated. These days, I’ll make the occasional contribution to WOBAM! Entertainment, where I currently serve as an editor.
Back in January, I didn’t just create this site you are currently reading this text on to be a place where I could write about whatever I felt like writing about at a given time, but to also be the home to short stories I’d write. That’s right, my childhood hobby resurfaced as I hit my mid-20’s. But this time, I’m sharing those stories with the world.
I am excited to share with you all my first short story. It is titled “She’s Out There”. It’s a story about Kyle, a 24 year-old who is starting to have doubts about finding “the one”. This is a rather personal story for me and I found the experience writing it to be cathartic. Though Kyle is a fictional character, a lot of my struggles and personal feelings in regards to relationships are expressed through his voice. It’s a story that I hope will resonate with people that are going through, or have gone through, those similar doubts.
