I was working out the details of my main short story when I read an email from Poets and Writers. Long story short, it was about soup. Kind of fitting because a lot of people have had bouts with the flu. There are a couple of different ways to write about soup. I thought I’d share my take on the prompt. Enjoy.
Quinton always knew that Mason would be a chef. Ever since he was eight, he devoured everything put on his plate. Didn’t matter if it was meatloaf or spinach or fish sticks. Continue reading “Rainbow Soup”
I was in a StoryDam chat this past Thursday on Twitter. I shared a little bit on how I was struggling to write a story.

I’m very excited with what I’m presenting to you. A few months ago, sci-fi and fantasy author K. J. Harrowick selected thirteen authors for her Winterviews series, and I was one of them. I’ve never been asked to do an interview before, so this was a great honor. She started posting the interviews back in December and will continue throughout the season. If you want to learn more about her Winterviews series, click here.
I read other authors’ Winterviews up until mine. The authors cover different genres and formats. I have to admit I was apprehensive about participating in this series because I wasn’t writing a novel and I had no WIPs at the time, but K. J. was very accommodating. So I jumped in, and I’m glad I did.
I think this will not only gain me more recognition, but will spur me on to pursue something bigger. Especially with the short story I presented to her. So if you want to read my Winterview, click here.
This is indeed a great honor, and I’m looking forward to more opportunities like this in the future.
Until next time…
I should be writing my short story rather than this post, but this is something I feel is worth talking about.
I think it’s amazing the knowledge we are able to attain. Continue reading “Training’s Over”
First of all, Happy New Year! 2018 is finally here. For some people, it couldn’t have come sooner. Time for fresh starts and new beginnings. Second, welcome to the first IWSG Post of the new year. For those of you new to my blog, the IWSG (Insecure Writer’s Support Group) encourages writers to share their writing journey—their triumphs and struggles—in order to encourage others on their own journey.
