Vince Guaglione is a guy who asks lots of questions, not only of himself but of his society and the world around him. Although he claims he's found no real answers, that hasn't stopped him in his quest to gain perspective on a little something we call life.

As a young teenager in 1984, Vince began journaling and, within a few years, began writing short stories in both the horror and suspense genres. Although none of his submissions were ever published, he did receive one credit for a submission in his college's literary magazine. Undeterred, he kept writing and in his early 20s, took on the challenge of documenting his youth, which he completed in 1994 but never published.

With the passing of his significant other in early 2012,

For me, I use some of what I see happening in society as ideas for my Narratives essays. Just when I think we've bottomed out, we hit a new low, and I write about it.(less)

I always enjoyed expressing myself through this medium but I put my writing pen down for a while as other things in life took precedence. I rediscovered my passion for writing in 2012, almost 30 years after I wrote my first journal entry.

I’ve published six short works as an independent author, four of which are in the personal transformation/philosophical genre. The other two live in the short suspense fiction genre. My personal growth series is titled “The Narratives,” and can best be described as my own unique brand of journaling. The fictional pieces are titled, “Chasing Angels” and “Eva.” I started writing in late 2012 as a means of calming my brain and refocusing my energy my energy after losing my significant other to suicide. I needed to do something to make sense of what I was feeling and to cope with her passing, and out of this came my first work, "The Narratives: Keeping the Soul Alive." In it, and in the other books in the series, I write mostly about my own struggles while navigating my path to healing, and towards self-actualization. But I also write about the things I see happening around me in society today. I talk about how we've become more closed off as a society today, more ego-centric, and how our societal values have changed. These works can best be summed up as my take on this thing we call life.(less)

In The Dark Recesses... (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 31, 2015 12:22PM
Description: The first entry from a collection of dark poetry/prose titled, "In The Dark Recesses..." What goes through the mind when we lay awake in the dead of night? What do we see when we stare into the darkness? What do think of? What do we feel deep in our soul? Is the mind playing tricks on us as we drift off into the world of sleep, or is it subtly reminding us of what's really locked inside, and what is pushing to the surface. "In The Dark Recesses..." is a compilation of short prose and poetry that highlights how the mind, both consciously and subconsciously, can work against us, and can sabotage our best efforts to achieve inner peace. Fears, terrors, and nightmares - all playing a part in our restlessness, and casting doubt on what we perceive as real. In the dead of night, and in the dark recesses of the mind, is where misery calls home.
