SIV

There are forty-five minutes left today. I need to do a little creative writing.

Here is a short story I wrote last year. As with anything I’ve written over three weeks ago, I think it’s rubbish. But it’s a Saturday.

The story is called SIV and is told from the perspective of a robot with artificial intelligence and a capacity for emotion. The only reason I’m sharing it with you today is because I recently got a positive comment about it on Wattpad. I was just about to delete the story entirely before that comment, but now I figure, if someone’s taking pleasure in reading it, I’ll leave it. So here you go:

The Eye That Sees All

Oh no! It’s been too long since I last posted!

Quick update: I did nothing all weekend. Today I had class, two meetings, and some reading to do. I’m still working on the reading, but it’s coming along. Will I be able to read 177 pages for 9:15am tomorrow? No. Was that my fault? Yes. Will I be able to get away with it and participate in the conversation during tomorrow’s class? Probably.

Here’s a comic I did for Textual Intervention last semester. I mentioned it here, here, here, and here. I knew I was taking a chance by doing a comic, and either my teacher would love it or hate it. Lucky for me, she loved it and I was very relieved to discover that I received an A- for this.

Here is The Eye That Sees All, based on the story The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. (You can click on each of the pages to make them bigger, but it’s even better if you can get them to open in a new window.)

The Mobster

Saturdays are story days! I will post short stories, poems, or anything else that I’ve written in the week. Unfortunately, all I’ve really written this past week are my assignments and some of Book3, so I’ll just write something on the spot.

There’s people watching, and then there’s accidental people watching. I’ve done both. People watching is when you’re sitting somewhere like a park or a shopping mall and you watch all the people around, what they do, what they say, and how they act. Accidental people watching is what I did around two years ago.

Why You Should Proofread Emails

I was doing my work in Textual Intervention class this morning like a good student when I got back my mark for the rationale I had written a few weeks ago. The rationale itself wasn’t included, but I got some comments and I pulled up the rationale on my laptop to compare the feedback. Only then did I notice that I had saved my rationale under the title “FuckingRationale.pages” which was fine because that doesn’t show up when you print off the work to hand in. Nothing was wrong.

Unlike what had happened in Scriptwriting class a few weeks back.
