The other day, as a fun side project (AKA a distraction from AWTTU), I started expanding out the story scrap I call "Premonition." I got pretty far with the narrative until I realized, when I got to a piece of dialogue where our narrator is addressed my name, I didn't even have a name for … Continue reading One Name to Rule Them All
The other day, I decided to freewrite something. The end product is a short piece that I suppose could be a prologue to a much longer sci-fi fantasy story. I don't know how far I'd be able to take this one, since I'm not particularly good at fantasy stories. I'm calling this one "Premonition," about … Continue reading Story scrap: “Premonition”

Thank you so much, Claire, for this opportunity - I feel honored. 🙂 What am I working on? At … Continue reading The Four Questions

I haven't started writing fiendishly today, but I figured I should share the good news: at this point, I've passed the 50% mark. I am now half way towards my writing goal of 10,000 words.
