The Hero
      The morning light coming through my window finally got the better of me as I rolled over for the fifth time. I looked at my alarm clock, three minutes before it was set to go off. Ugh, I hate it when that happens. My muscles yelled at me silently as I sat up and stretched. The shitty twin bed still gave me issues despite how thick I am.
      I was hungry. My fridge held no real promise of a good breakfast, so I threw on my heavy boots to set out to the nearest Denny’s. As I finished tying them I looked at my closet at my leather jacket. It was my pride and joy, but the August weather was frighteningly warm, even for me. The change on my dresser soon found its way to my pocket, and my cap on my head. As I left my alarm clock started going off. I grabbed a book off my bookshelf and threw it at it. The alarm clock broke. Always hated the fucking things anyway.
      I turn to leave my apartment and head for the stairs. My lovely di

Old unfinished story
“Alright listen everyone, Listen please! It has been an interesting year to say the least,” the instructor said, “ and you only have a few days left, but you do not want to flake on that homework. These last few assignments are the most important to your future career. Do them, and I will see you at your graduation next week. Class dismissed.”
“Ugh,” Terry said getting up from his desk
“What's the matter?” Rachel asked, “Your usually more... chipper.”
“I need to get a job. And I hate the homework we're doing.”
“Well, we only have a week left. You'll pull through. And then we can be well paid accountants!”
The instructor shuffled from his desk and stood, “Oh, before you all go, I took the liberty of taking a few wanted ads off the web and printing them out. They will be on this desk. If any of you are interested, print me out a decent resume and I will submit them for you.” The teacher put th

Flightless Birds
Commander Rooster looked out the window as the interference from entering the atmosphere finally cleared. The planet below was layered with sheets of snow and ice, with only jagged rocks breaking through the miles of frozen wasteland. Planet Plisar has been registered as desolate since the Giant’s War. No human had ever set foot on it since the evacuation away from the Lizerd, and even before then Rooster could never figure out why they fought on the planet in the first place. It was one of the biggest losses both on the planet and its rim for the Race.
“Time to get your gear system’s checked.”  Airman Tigress said over the intercom.
Rooster turned to his crew, “Helmets on.”
The four soldiers put on their helmets, and there visors showed there life suits check each person’s pulse and oxygen level. It then synced to the helm of the ship. The co-pilot turned his head back to the crew, “Your newbie’s pulse is a little high Command

The Devils story
A gust of wind came up as he entered the depths of hell step by step. He took a deep breath and then coughed, it was hot and tasted of sulfur. He took a drink of water,then spit it out immediately, the water was nearly boiling hot. He clenched his teeth and took another drink, swished it to try and cool the water, then swallowed, it burned all the way down. It did nothing to quench his thirst. He still kept it near him, it was the last of his water supply. Wind came up from the orange light as he continued to descend the stairs. The air dried his eyes, he lifted his shield to block his eyes from the heat, his eyes watered. "Damn." He mumbled under his breath. The water from his eyes dried on his cheek. The warrior slowed, the heat was finally getting to him.
   He turned around and looked up, he could no longer see the entrance from where he came from. He turned back and faced the gates of hell then lifted his shield once again and started down the stairs once more.

Dark woods.
   I shifted the weight of the bag over my other shoulder and then pressed on deeper into the woods. The moon rose into the sky and the stars lit up the forest around me. The soft light gave the forest a calm look, but the dangers quickly awoke within the trees. I thought about lighting a torch to continue with some light, but thought better of it. Bringing more attention to myself than necessary seemed foolhardy.
   Creatures of the night started to wake and prowl around me. Unlike the day animals, these ones did not make much noise. There were a few growls here and there, but the only other sound these creatures made were just the slight movements of their feet.
   After going for what seemed like an eternity I was lost. I muttered to myself. I had been stuck in these woods for three days. The forest was survivable, but I didn’t enjoy it. It had three days now searching. I knew I was close, but with every step I grew more unsure. I raised my hand,

The Bridge
Beside me stand other warriors. Weapons drawn- axes, swords, bows- we stand upon the last bridge between civilization and obliteration. Creatures of all finally standing together on this one bridge.  We are not soldiers, the soldiers left their post a long time ago, when peace was a song and war was a myth.
We are volunteers, my brothers, protectors of life and a sign of what our nations should be. The monsters from the north reign down the mountain, each a giant, each with one thing on their mind, to kill.
Here they come.
We are no longer apart of life; we are warriors of it. Our life is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, our lives means life for others. We will die but not today. Tomorrow perhaps, but not today.
This is the last stand, the last motion. Our hope is only ourselves and the men around us.
Here they come.
We will defend and fight until we can no longer stand. We will chant and yell till our voices go out. We will stop these wretched beasts from reaching our borders.

You have the gun
Squeeze the trigger
Force the smile
Force the snicker
Release the wrath
with your anger
Unleash the bullets
from their chamber
Watch your veins
and Blood pressure rise
As you watch
these poor men die
Both guilty and free
It does not matter
Watch their dreams
hit and shatter
With one last shot
there's one destination
Bring the gun close
and end this frustration
This bullets for you
it was always intended
Here I come Satan

Drave the Demon Hunter
Drave the Cowboy
        "My name is Drave. I am a demon hunter. My profession has blessed me with nicknames like Grave or Raven depending on what part of the world I am in. I have done this a long time and have killed many demons, spirits, ghosts, and other things that hide in your closet during bedtime. Some of those things hold grudges, and just like you and me, they talk. They know who I am and I am slowly becoming the hunted. Least, that's how it was heading, until tonight. Tonight I retire.
I always carry three revolvers with me. Eighteen shots. I've only ever needed more once. Tonight will be no different. A revolver in each holster and the third in the back of my jeans. All three guns and ammo have been blessed by a nun or monk. The one in back holds special bullets, silver bullets. The other twelve shots are just lead with crosses etched in them. Cheaper that way.
I am protected by my long coat, which is layered with s

Check that grammar, bro.
This is an expansion of an article I wrote for a website that has been deleted. I figured I would share it here, for anyone else interested in being published.
As storytellers, we all write because we love to do it. Many writers enjoy their craft for the sheer fun of daydreaming through words. But what happens when you decide to take your art to the next level and publish it? Do you just put down the pen and declare: "Done! Now on to printing!"
Well, you shouldn't. Finishing a story is but the first step towards finalizing a book, or uploading for an audience online.
Writing is creative and experimental, but publishing should be bound by laws of proper English and critical technicalities. Back when publishing was almost exclusively done by a print-editor and multi-unit company, there were professionals to check your work before it hit book shelves. In fact, your book had to first make it past the dreaded slush pile of either an agent, or publishing house assistant.

I did! I took a small vacation to Sedona, Arizona (two-three hours north from where I live) and did touristy things. Shopped, ate food, and relaxed. Recharged my creative spirit. Came back to Phoenix with a vengeance and am going to start shooting my short film soon.
