Infinitesimal

With the scale of the universe and the tremendous amount of weight that each of us puts on ourselves and others, it's no wonder we all feel empty. Scott McTiny When I look to the stars or to the sea, there are endless things to observe. There are so many different creatures and planets; so …

Bored of Existence

Idea by: Nikos Koufus Written by: Scott McAllknowingandpowerful I find it interesting. The first thing that my creations did was develop time. Even the very first ones knew about time before they discovered time. I have never had the privilege of feeling time. For me, nothing ages: It just changes. The grass that grows. The …

Grandfather Clock

When depression and anxiety hit at the same time that you're working on a project, time becomes a very unwelcome enemy. Scott McFatherTime The chimes of the loyal timekeeper echo through the halls, vibrating my bones. It’s midnight again. It’s midnight again. It’s another midnight. Another entire day of nothing. When all else fails, I …

Chalkboard Woes

This was an idea that my friend Nikos came up with. I wrote it about a year ago and I still find it to be one of the more existential and unique pieces that I have written. I've never been someone who loved school or the education system. I'd even say that I hate it. …

Change

The constant struggle between trying to become something bigger than myself and falling into complacent laziness is one that I have to overcome everyday. I'm not special by saying that. Everyone has different metrics for success. Mine sits much higher than I'll likely ever be able to reach, but you bet your ass I'm working …

Limb from Limb

I pour my heart into the shit that I put out here. It may not be super new, but at some point I did pour my heart into it. I have no problem revealing myself in what I write and showing my true goals. I would love to be a famous writer. I would love …

Knife to Meet You

I wrote this based on an idea from my girlfriend, Alex Oliver, and she loved it. I've also heard from one of my other writer friends that the idea was good, but they thought everything about the execution was wrong. I hope more people agree with Alex on this one, but if not... whatever! Scott …

Helium

This is the second part in the balloon series. I hope it's... blowing your mind. Actually, I hope my writing pops into your thoughts in all hours of the day. No no no, I hope that my writing inflates your self-esteem. Scott McHotair They keep getting smaller and smaller. It’s so unfair. They’ve always had …

Grounded

This is the first of two parts, the second coming tomorrow. It's a simple piece that goes over the distinct differences in thought and how no matter what, people are never happy with what they have, but rather envious of everything they don't. We follow a balloon that was never given the air that it …

Cosmic Dust

It's easy to think about how completely and totally expendable we are as humans. We have no apparent purpose except to go around and live. Some of us are living the lives that they hoped to live and others are farther from it than they ever thought they'd be, but no matter the quality of …

Hamster in a Cage

This is the first short that I wrote. It's short, simple and to the point. I don't want to tell you exactly what these are about because I want people to think about them. I hate when I read something and then I get to the end and they tell me what I should think. …
