DTTL: Vessel Hell

Submitted: March 31, 2018

Down to the Letter edition of Interpretation V1, another classic from 2016 that brings back fond memories of powerful pcitrues.

DTTL: The Walk Home V1

Submitted: April 09, 2018

I'm pleased with this chapter, although I may come back to it later, just to add something about October (more on that month in future posts). Regardless, V1 is the only version I need: in
retrospect, its just the length I needed to remember, and deconstruct as I saw fit.

DTTL: III to the IV

Submitted: April 10, 2018

One of those weird chapters, especially because I was feeling all out of sorts when writing it. I might actually come back to this one, but hey, I'm still meeting that one-chapter-a-day criteria,

DTTL: A Stranger with Lukewarm Coffee

Submitted: April 11, 2018

An easy read, not too much depth. Sets up the next chapter though, so might as well take a read. Also, I think it would be cool if I uploaded an audiobook version to Youtube. Maybe someday? Just a

DTTL: Like A Bloody Mess/That Billowy Pillow Feeling

Submitted: April 16, 2018

A double-header. Probably the only time I'll do this, since they are so alike, and I didn't really want to return to this topic again. Next chapter is another dedication, so keep an eye out!

DTTL: My Son

Submitted: April 17, 2018

A dedication, to Maureen Boland. Also, the dedication of the hard work associated with the I-Search (I hope to post it in its entirety someday) of every student of every year. Finally, to the
memories of eighth grade.

DTTL: The Cloth Doll

Submitted: April 22, 2018

The Cloth Doll. It is late, it is very late. Technically, this is a Sunday double-header, but that's okay.

DTTL: Desire

Submitted: April 22, 2018

This is longer than usual, since it was more recent, and I therefore had more to say about it. Will also be posting the final version of Desire/Caved-In at some point in the next 24 hours, so keep
a lookout for that.

DTTL: Frautre

Submitted: April 24, 2018

A cardinal sin of playwright literature. Also, this chapter carries less meaning to me than it did when I started it. Living in bad faith once again...

DTTL: Jane Goodall's I Am Poem

Submitted: April 25, 2018

A DTTL for a poem written on primatologist Jane Goodall. Maybe if this gets shares, she'll see it. Maybe not. Wishful thinking. Anyways, enjoy.

Let it die. Will be revisited by summer's end if series is revitalized. Unlikely, but still, a developing story nonetheless.

DTTL: HIV, or the Henry Ivan Venison Story

Submitted: May 01, 2018

7th Grade autobiography. Hence the length. Also, the first chapter that took me more than a day to write. Also also, perhaps the most fulfilling chapter to date. At least, to me. Could change with

A.A.A, I will try to find a final draft of the story, and post ASAP.

DTTL: A Long Time Coming

Submitted: May 04, 2018

It really is, isn't it? Anyways, a nice little chapter. The last one that is probably going to be nice for me, for a while. Time to get serious...

DTTL: Sometimes I Do Too

Submitted: May 12, 2018

Double-post day. This one is a little bit of a 'black sheep' for me, since I can't even remember the reason I wrote it. Considerably short for such a climactic part of the series. Hence,
