I really took an interest in writing due to my grade 7 teacher, Mr. Geiger. He really pushed us to write a paragraph every day, and present it in front of the class. He got the class to evaluate how good you were, so the incentive was to be as interesting as possible. Since then, I’ve joined and won various prose and poetry competitions and have kept up the writing to date.
Here is a list of my creative writing works (that I want to show):
Inspired by my volunteer trip to Jinotepe, NIcaragua. It talks about what things are permanent and what things are not and touches on how some of us have come to perceive volunteering.
A dysfunctional orchestra attempts to win a competition – a story with many different perspectives telling the “same story”.
A caller calls into a telephone crisis center.
For those who may have played baseball as a child (like I have). Written from the perspective of a child.
Inspired by House and Sherlock Holmes – a cab driver picks up a man in the wee hours of dawn.
An old man is seen throwing coins off a pier… written back in high school.
The following are examples of a few poems I wrote:
If you enjoy toilet humour.
Regarding an illegal experience I had while travelling.
We all need one from time to time…
About two soldiers caught in a stand-off.
