Six Feet Under

Basically, it’s written from the perspective of a man that wakes up inside a coffin, buried in the ground (basically what the film Buried was, without the whole terrorist subplot).

First blog post

Well, here I am. I’ve always wanted to write for a long time and I’ve eventually written a few short stories (hilariously posted as Facebook statuses) and finally decided to start this blog to share my stories, thoughts on films (short reviews), and personal random thoughts.

I don’t know how this far this will go but here I am, taking my first step into finally starting this blog to archive stories I’ve written and will write in the future for the world to see. Some people tell me I have the creative juices to produce masterpieces and I’ll let you guys be the critics for my work.

Cheers,
Sherman
