Love’s Labour’s Lost But Not Quite Ft. John Steinbeck

So I took a short story class last semester because I needed a literacy credit. Naturally, this included writing essays. This is my essay on “The Chrysanthemums” by John Steinbeck. This essay is not for young kids because of the nature of the story which you can find here if you wish to read the rest of my essay. I made minor edits transferring it from MLA to something more consumable. Nor did I include the works cited. “Love’s Labour’s Lost” is a Shakespeare comedy about a king and his lords swear off the company of women in favor of… Read More

If only you’d wear this or that more often.… Read More

Dedication & Author’s Note

This book’s dedication is to many people but first and foremost to my mom who read the first draft and my friend who let me read the story aloud to her and gave me the idea to make an audio book. Thank you both for your support, I appreciate you both <3..  Also,–in all technicalities–to my first ex. When he broke up with me, I wrote the love story I wanted to read.

Letter 9: a new monarch

Dear reader,  My name is Will. I have been tasked to take care of Princess Kathrine. This has been my sole task since I was a young lad and her a young lass. I ultimately failed. It’s been a few years since I’ve written, sorry. Some of it was partly because I was in jail for three months, six hours, 20 minutes, and 23 seconds with no pen or paper, but who’s counting? Certainly not me while I waited for news from a monarch. The other part was how busy it got after I was released.  sunnysideupHey y’all, it’s the author… Read More
