Great news! I just submitted one of my poems for my university’s literary magazine. I will find out if I got in or not soon and I will keep you updated.

Here is the poem I submitted:

“Chicken crackles inside a metallic bowl.

The sonic sparks send ripples across the kitchen.

Each pop makes the customer’s mouth water.

The noise intensifies as the meat fries.


When the meat flips into the air,

The sizzle briefly turns to a whisper.

When it falls into the pan once more,

The sizzle returns to fill my ears with bliss.


Upon leaving the searing wok pan,

The orange chicken slides into a bowl.

The harmonious sizzling remains,

To entertain my senses with anticipation.


Finally, as I bite into the crackling, fried meat

The sizzle churns in my mouth as the chicken

Is chewed before being swallowed.

Inside my bottomless stomach, the sizzling continues.”


Guess what?! I have just passed my American Sign Language Class! This class was TWO YEARS worth of material, which is a type of class I never tackled before! By passing this class, I have completed my Foreign Language requirements to graduate from my university! I’M FREE!!! I am about to start binge-writing while watching the Extended Editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings!


I find myself in a sad and depressing time. For several months, I have not been able to write any of my books. The reason for this is because I have been studying to complete my American Sign Language class. This class contains over two years worth of material, which means if I pass this class then I will have completed my foreign language requirements to graduate from my university. Therefore, failure is not an option in this class. As a result of the high stakes of this class, I was forced to sacrifice my writing time in order to put more effort into this class. While this does help me academically, it also robs me of my greatest passion, which leaves me in a toxic state of sadness and depression. Nothing is more pathetic than a person who is separated from their passion. However, I cannot write until Wednesday this week by nightfall. The reason for this is because even though I cannot write at this time that has not stopped me from brainstorming on how the story will progress. That means that once I start writing, I won’t be able to stop! Therefore, I have to suck it up and do whatever it takes to finish and pass the class and get it out of my life for good. Don’t worry though because you will hear a flurry of activity Wednesday night this week. Hopefully, I can get back on track and complete my writing quota on time. Wish me luck!
