She threw off the covers, thoughts veiled in thick fog of disbelief, a dream-like numbing skirting the edges of nightmare, and slowly, as another wave of pain struck, she comprehended what was happening and screamed. Visible in the morning […]
The gloom descended on him the moment his sneaker touched the broken walk leading to his mother’s house. It was as if a cloud had taken up permanent residence over the green tiled house.

I’ve been on a hiatus for a while. As something of a jack of all trades, I dabble in many things such as writing, filming and schooling while maintaining a steady job. On top of this, there will be a new addition to the Dedman family. The first of many miracles this family will surely be gifted with, and my […]

The sighs and slices […]

Venturing back to an old story that has earned its place among the classics requires careful consideration of the attributes that facilitated its praise. This not only includes the strengths and weaknesses of the previous work, but the environment, narration, and character development. Honestly comparing Disney’s envisioned prequel to the Wizard of Oz is difficult due to the trends in […]
