Tag Archives: reminisce


22 Dec

So, 11 years ago, I had this crush. (What’s new, right?) Anywho, in response to where the crush went–absolutely nowhere–I wrote a story. It was my way of catharsis, as I like to do.

I’ve decided to share this story with you! I’m largely proud of it; it was a great accomplishment for me; and…my sister wants me to share it with my readers, so I have to listen to her, even though I’m older. Each week, I will bring The Cruelty Papers (the title) to you in installments. You can find Part One here. I’d love to get your thoughts, your comments, whatever you’d like to say. Please and thank you?

Eleven years later, I have to say that my writing has changed in certain ways, but at the core, this is a definitive sample of my work. And it was nice to read this story and reminisce.

Enjoy, and be sure to let me know what you think!

p.s.: This is only the beginning of sharing my stories with you by installment. Again, enjoy!



Sincerely, Taj
