If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, you’ll know that, since October 1st, I’ve been posting questions I had in writing the novella I’ve since turned into the album In Principio: Eden (The Audio Experience), now available on Spotify and all other streaming platforms just like it is in the 65-second track embedded at the end of this post. But in case you didn’t see those questions (or missed some, or want to revisit them, or are just bored and want something to read right now), I’ve compiled all 31 of them here.
So without further ado, here are 31 questions I’ve had surrounding Eden:
This year, for the first time since I was eligible back in elementary school, I won’t be playing organized basketball. And this isn’t because of some eligibility requirement or a gruesome injury.
Academically, I’m cruising. Physically, even with my asthma, I’m in one of the best conditions I’ve ever been in. Mentally, I’m tight. Shoot, I’m even growing spiritually.
I’m not ending my basketball career a month before the start of my final collegiate season because of a shortcoming in any of these areas. There’s no reason I can’t continue my college basketball career. But I’m choosing not to.
I love proving people wrong. I love beating the odds and pushing past perceived limitations. Heck, I simply love winning. But more than that, I love overcoming. I’m sure you and most everyone else does too…or at least the concept of it.
Yet, quite frankly, most people don’t win. They don’t overcome. At least not to the degree that they want to. And from what I’ve seen, the reason for this is quite simple: people don’t run towards struggle. Instead, it seems like the majority of people procrastinate, if not altogether try to avoid things that would lead to a struggle in any shape or form.
#OneSentenceSaturday is cool and all, but I’ve been wanting to share a bit more of my creative writing. So…I’ve decided to start posting excerpts! I’ll post these writing excerpts at least once per week once per week and would love to hear your feedback, positive or negative, in the comments below (or via my contact page)!
Right before my senior season of high school basketball, my doctor told me that, due to the state of my asthma, I shouldn’t play organized sports. Not just basketball either, but any organized sport. To be honest, I can’t say I was surprised, particularly given
I’m loading. Have been for a while. In fact, I’ve been processing since this last spring semester, working my behind off in the background so that the image that eventually appears is as clear, crisp, and sharp as can be. Without getting into specifics, I’ve been learning a lot throughout it all; enough to know that it’s time for me to hit the refresh button.
This site has remained stagnant for far too long as I was seemingly MIA. I’ve still been productive in the meantime though. Since I last posted here, I finished my second semester at TKC, finished the basketball season, had a tremendous track season, got an internship, and did a whole host of other things. But most importantly, I’ve been writing. A lot. And with the #onesentencesaturday I’m starting today, I’m ready to slowly ease into promoting my work.
