High School Projects
- Journey of the Runaway
- As a submission for an English class, I wanted to write an adventure that
would conclude with a surprise ending. The resulting story, Journey of the
Runaway, dramiatizes the struggles of a young vagabond in a big city.
My high school's literary magazine, Mindscape, published this story in
its Volume I No. 2. Spring, 1993 issue.
- Svishing in the Snow
- The inspiration for this poem hit me while I typed a computer program in a business
course. What if I could string together a series of sounds that could symbolize
the sleek, slippery speed of skiing? How could I express that type of exhileration? The
result: an onslaught of onomatopoeia called Svishing in the Snow. Still wondering
what svishing means? Read this poem to find out. It also appeared in the Volume
I No. 3. Spring, 1994 issue of Mindscape Magazine.
- The Night of Reckoning
- In contrast to my earlier light-hearted works, this short story addresses the captivity
of busywork. The inspiration hit me while I stapled papers for an administrative
school office. Later, Mindscape Magazine published this expression of civil
disobedience in the Volume I No. 3. Spring, 1994 issue.
