I’m 31 and have been writing my whole life. I enjoy writing poetry and short stories. I hope one day to finish a full novel and have it published.
I focus primarily on fiction, but hope to try my hand at editorials soon.
Proud to be a Leo
I was born a Leo. My mom heavily believed, and still does, in astrology and all things mystical. Our family computer had multiple sites dedicated to star signs saved under favorites. Checking my horoscope and learning about the traits of a Leo became part of my daily routine. Following in my mom’s footsteps; I wanted to know everything there was to know about astrology. Looking back, I had no idea how difficult that venture would prove to be.
Time and Hope
Rory logged off of his computer and stretched his arms above his head. Leaning back as far as his chair would let him, he let out an intense sound as he felt every muscle in his back fill with blood. How long had he been leaning over the keyboard? He surmised one of the downfalls of working from home, during a worldwide pandemic, was having no ergonomics posters anywhere. No constant reminders he was ruining his posture by sitting like an idiot. He reached for his journal, something he had started at the beginning of the pandemic to cope. It was a small, leather bound, black journal. The pages were crisp, but the edges looked worn, and that was exactly why he had picked it.
