This week’s blog tour focus is Carnival Hearts, the second story in the new edition of Short Story Collection vol. 1. Since Carnival Hearts was really a writing exercise that went well, I figured it would be fun to share a handful of writing exercises you can try to get out of your writing comfort zone! I don’t know about you, but my best writing tends to happen when I’m pushing myself out of my comfort zone; and even when the end result isn’t great, the process of doing an exercise is almost always a ton of fun.

Short Story Collection vol. 1 is re-releasing in a month, and Silence with it, so I’m bringing back my interview with the story’s MC, Fiona. It’s been slightly updated to reflect edits I’ve made to the story (as well as, hopefully, an improvement in my writing voice), but it’s primarily the same interview I posted two years ago for the first release.

Here are a few indicators your project might be ready for the far back burner. Continue reading “3 Indicators That It’s Time to Let Go of a Project”
The new year is almost upon us, and time has my brain screwed up in knots. On the one hand… it’s been a whole year already? On the other hand, wasn’t July a full year ago? And how did November and December pass in a week? Time is just weird, and the way my brain handles time is even weirder. But according to the calendar, it’s almost the start of a new year and a new decade, which means it’s time for reflection, new goals, and fresh starts. So, let’s reflect, shall we?
