My Write-a-thon Information!

My Writing Goals

I'd like to write everyday during the Write-a-thon, and complete a minimum of two short story drafts.

Writing Sample

With each scale of back that covered up her skin, another hurt faded away forever. It had been a year since the arthritis in her knuckles ached to warn that rain was coming. With every twig replacing a follicle of hair, some old shame fell from the memories that haunted her sleepless nights, devoured by its own inconsequence and finally, finally forgotten.

Writing Progress

What I Write

Short, speculative stories bursting with imagination.
