Lately we’ve been talking a lot about what differentiates the decent stories from the ones that gut hook us and don’t let go. In my opinion the truly superlative stories stand out in one way. We are not only entertained…we are changed. We aren’t the same person we were when we flipped open to page…

Every now and then I come across a lovely beat that is hard to categorize. Here are some of my favorite ones:

  • The movers scuffed the wall with the table.
  • He was hovering inches from her face.
  • She raised the storefront’s tattered awning.
  • He sang a sprightly melody.
  • A rowdy gaggle of youth.
  • He frittered his life away.
  • Soon, he was lost in the crush of people now spilling out into the streets in droves.
  • Behind the curtains came the tapping. The tap tap tap rhythm of a branch against the window.
  • Now place her in the past, where…

One of my hobbies is photography, and I still remember something a photographer friend and teacher once told me: even with the best film and camera, your photograph will only be as good as the light available to you. Here are some ways to capture its infinite variations:

  • The pitiless afternoon sun filtered through the rose-clad lattices, throwing rhombi of light onto the table.

Butterfly with feather

“It was so risky and so scary, and yet at the same time, so beautiful. Maybe the truth was, it shouldn’t be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be.

When something’s difficult to come by, you’ll do that much more to make sure it’s even harder -if not impossible- to lose.” Sarah Dessen

Do you ever think you know things, but realize that you don’t know jack?

That was me.

I thought I had the world in the palm of my hands.

Senior year was a breeze, complete with raging parties, a hot girlfriend, and a future all laid out for me.

Life was perfect.

Christ, was I wrong.

And when everything started crumbling down, there was not one damn thing I could do to make it stop.  Life started spiraling out of control, one letdown and setback after the next.  And now, suddenly, I’m trapped in a hurricane of hell that I can’t escape.

I’m Walker Farren,

And this is only the beginning.
