The Tuesday/Thursday Writing Blog

Instead of starting off by welcoming you to my blog, I'm going to say this… I have no idea what I'm doing. I had been considering starting a blog but didn't know what to talk about. Now that I've written some short stories for school, and actually had them purchased and published, I feel like I can talk about my writing journey on a blog. Plus, my current New Media class for Southern New Hampshire University requires me to set up a blog, so I kind of have to do this.

At the moment, I'm halfway through the first draft of a novel I'm excited about. I put it on the shelf for the moment to concentrate on school. Since SNHU has me writing short stories, I'm going to take them all and collect them for my to-be-published collection FEARS, SCARES & OTHER NIGHTMARES, which will hopefully be done by the end of 2021. That depends on how many stories I get done for school and how many edits they've gone through. Luckily, I found some freelance editors of short stories by submitting one of my school stories to The Dread Machine. EVE was masterfully edited by the Executive Editor there, Alin Walker, and published by them on March 9th, 2021. EVE was the second of three stories for SNHU that was published.

As I go through my writing journey, I'm going to try blogging on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Right now, I'm focused more on my studies than actual writing, but I still try to get close to 500 words written on a daily basis. As I learn new things, read new books on writing, or experience new steps of the writing/publishing world, I'll be posting them here.

I hope you enjoy and gain something from them!

My published stories are:
