With a BA in English and MSc in Creative Writing, writing is my life. I have edited and ghost written as a freelancer for a few years with some published stories and poems of my own. You can learn more about me at thewritersscrapbin.com.
Winter Horror Story
‘Tis the season to go through old things, isn’t it? It’s a rather nostalgic time of year, and for me, that means rifling through my older pieces of writing.

The Ocean of MoralityTop Story - December 2023
I am lost, drowning In a sea of gray morals Help! I cannot breathe I don’t know what I am doing. I haven’t known what I’ve been doing for quite some time. It seems that since 2016, at least, I have been swimming in an ocean of uncertainty. Up is down, the sky isn’t quite so blue, and right and wrong are nothing but mazes of gray shadows that no one can navigate properly. I don’t know who I am, I barely know what I stand for, and I feel like nothing more than a broken puzzle of likes, interests, and disdains that don’t necessarily fit together well.
