Essay of an Essay that was a Terrible Essay

By Michael Ernst

My first major non-fiction essay that I ever had to write was a real pain in the ass.  I can remember the great amounts of stress it brought me, and frankly, I hated every single moment of my existence while constructing this poor excuse of a paper.

Can I Do It?

By Salynda Hogsett

I hate unknowns.

I’m writing a mystery story! Crazy, right? What, did you think I was just pretending to know what I was talking about all this time? Actually, don’t answer that. Continue reading “Clueless: How I Overcome Writing Challenges (Part 1?)”

Sea Creature–Kun

By Megan Whisennand

So, I have this really weird affection for betta fish.  So much so that my affection rivals my feelings for my cat.  He only wins out because I can—y’know—actually hold and play with him. Continue reading “Sea Creature–Kun”
