One Man’s Trash

2 06 2016

Hooray for Canadian lit! Hooray even more for Vancouver writers! There’s something about reviewing local authors that makes me feel like I can’t/shouldn’t criticize their work in public, even if I did find some flawed in some ways. I guess it makes me feel like a bit of a jerk even if I have constructive remarks because they could very well read my words and, I don’t know, not be happy. Or tell me that I’m just jealous because I don’t have a published book (yet).

So basically, all I will say is that some stories in this collection were more interesting than others, such as when Ivan and his girlfriend attempt to get a shotgun wedding in Vegas. To distract you, here’s a picture of me wearing an awesome shirt with dinosaurs on it.


It’s official!

Look what arrived in the mail today! (I squealed for a bit… okay, I am still squealing)

Writing 25 consecutive minutes of piano music for a friend’s film + preparing for a show tonight + dealing with short story publications + organizing production meetings for my next shrot film + lots of schoolwork + work =


Anyone have short stories?

Earlier this month, I came across an ad at Langara about a student at the school looking for short stories for an anthology she was putting together.  She wasn’t looking for any specific kind of themes or stories, and I decided to email her to ask her about it and to send some of my stuff to her.  It turns out her aunt owns a publishing company, who would be the one to publish this anthology.  She’s putting the anthology together partly because Langara, though it does have a yearly book of writing that students past and present can submit their material to get published for, they have a limit of 2 or 3000 words for short stories.  The other part is just to have something published, which I think would be super awesome.

We’ve emailed each other back and forth for a bit and she’s still looking or material.  If anyone reading this has any short stories lying around on their computer or knows of anyone who might have something or even feels inspired to write one for her and her project and would like to send it to her, send an email at And if you have questions, obviously ask her instead of me since I am unknowledgeable.

I sent her three stories I had written.  She hasn’t decided how many stories to publish and I don’t know if she’s set a deadline though at this point, since she’s gotten so few submissions, she might not have a set day.

So yes!  Get on it people!

The Egg pt. 2

Alright, so for those who may be clever enough to see that this is in fact “part 2” and are wondering what in the hell that means, I first started a blog a few days ago on blogger but I wasn’t really feeling the lack of categories (I like to be organized!).  Plus, I think I made my blog kind of morbid-looking, even for my tastes, which is really saying something.  And since my good buddy, Stefan, a formidable writer himself, has a blog on this site, I decided to steal his idea and use it myself.  Thanks, Stefan.

Anyway, I’m going to be doing the same thing as I planned to do with my other blog: slowly post my collection of stories, poems, song lyrics, and other assortment of manic things that spewed from my mind.  Also, leave comments!  I like comments, especially good ones.

So, once again… let’s get this thing started!
