Thank-You Letter

This isn’t so much a post as it is more of a thank you note to all my followers of Project Blacklight. Being this was my first year, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know how many followers I would receive, let alone how many people would read what I had to share. I’m happy to say that I am satisfied with the blog thus far. The goals I set out to accomplish with this blog are pretty much accomplished. 

As a writer, there is still a long way to go. Project Blacklight will continue to be a vessel in which I will strive to meet the goals I set for the upcoming year. I hope to share more short stories, including “The Cell Games” series. I, also, look to start the biggest task for any writer: drafting a novel. I hope to share what I’ve learned and continue to learn in this blog as I undertake such a tremendous project. And, as always, I hope to share items that are near and dear to me. 

Thank you, everyone, who believed in me. There are many on Facebook and Twitter; too many to mention, but you know who you are. Here’s to an amazing 2016!

(It’s still a struggle.) I would go months without writing and not care. Continue reading “Room to Grow: 2015 Year in Review”


Trent glanced at his watch. It read, “12:14.” His feet tapped the floor like a drummer. Trisha patted him on the shoulder and kissed his cheek.

“Don’t worry. We’ll make it in time.”

He titled his head at the line. It looked as if it could circle the mall three times over. He and Trisha and Ophelia were in the middle.

“I told you we should have left sooner.” Continue reading “Waiting”
