Microfiction: Private Time

It was a secret. No one could know what he did in his own room when no one was watching. He’d sit there at his computer screen, glance around and behind him.

And only when he was sure that he was truly alone, would he eye that can of soda. Peer at it. Continue reading

Microfiction: Revision

Sing a song loudly, and they will hear.

“But who is ‘they?’” he asked, and the narrator looked down at him and quirked his mouth.

“I don’t know, I’m being vaguely biblical, I guess?” Continue reading

Announcing: Reading Away The Hours by Brandon Scott

I published another book!

I’m now the author of two books!

I’m excited to have another one of my stories out for the world to see. I’ve been editing it off and on for like a year now and finally got the push to finish it. I originally wrote it as a horror novel that a kid could read and enjoy, but it ended up growing into something a lot more disturbing, so now it’s maybe PG13.

If you’re interested, the entire first chapter is below along with a link to the Amazon page. I don’t usually ask this, but, if you could share it around or post it to your social media, I’d really appreciate it. Continue reading

Stuff You Need When You Move

I’ve moved a lot. My family has moved a lot. Not necessarily from one state to another, but we’ve hopped around cities, and towns, and even in the same town. I’m not used to living in the same house for very long and I’ve gotten a lot of practice at packing up fast and doing it efficiently. Continue reading

Microfiction: If It Pleases Him

He knew what he wanted, and thus it was. Walking along the street, the street changed for him. The place was clean, quiet—the world clattered no more. The sounds of the annoying variety had been utterly ceased. Bread smelled extremely sweet if he so wanted. And every store was a bakery that made bread, should it please him. Continue reading

You Need Only Look

If you’re a writer in need of some story ideas, or a new creative that is interested in coming up with an idea for your first creation, or even someone experiencing some kind of block—though I’m not one to believe in writer’s block—then the advice I give is simple, the way forward is not complicated.

Look. Continue reading

My New YouTube Project

I’ve been watching Youtube for a very long time. And I don’t mean that as how one might say “I watch Netflix”—this is not a hobby or a downtime thing. When I am doing something like cleaning, cooking, laundry, I have it playing in the background—I have a constant stream when I am doing something that doesn’t need my full attention.

It’s at the point that, on a chore day, or a day where I need to cook a shit-ton, I look at a 4-hour video as something that won’t last me even the length of that day. Continue reading

Busy Is Better

Look, I like being able to just chill, too, but, trust me when I tell you this, and it may go against a lot of the thinking people seem to have: but being busy, having a lot to do…is a good thing.

I recently, like within the last week or two, tried to double my projects; I drastically increased the number of items on my daily checklist, and, against all the usual “logic” on the matter, want to know what happened? Continue reading
