My creative writing endeavors have, for the most part, been on hiatus while I have been at grad school.
However, in a previous life, I wrote two contemporary realistic young adult novels, and three or four other half-finished non-masterpieces. None of which are quite ready to see the light of day. Give me another three or four years.
I hope to return to the task once I have a little more time on my hands.
In the meantime, here is an award-winning poem I wrote in 6th grade:
Every time you see a spider,
Walking on the ground or wall,
You might be afraid of spiders, but
although this may be true,
did you ever think the spider
might be more afraid of you?
So next time you see a spider,
please don’t scream and shout.
Just leave the poor old spider;
he’ll find his own way out.
