RoW80 – Week 3, Sunday Check In

My writing this week went well except for Friday. I think part of that was being up and running all week and just crashing on Friday. I just didn’t feel like writing and that showed in how little I managed to write in the 25 minutes I forced myself to sit in front of the…

RoW80 -Week 3, Wednesday Check In

This morning, part 3 of Roommates that I finished and submitted last week went live on LitErotica. There’s an approval process so it doesn’t go up right away. So far, there are 4 loves on the story, a rating of 4.69 in 26 ratings, and two new people following me. No one has commented with…

Flash Fiction Friday 1/11/2019

The Flash Fiction Friday prompt this week offered 6 locations and 6 things in a little table. I rolled 2d6 and came up with either a dark lake and a folded sheet of paper or a quiet suburb and onion rings. I probably should have designated which d6 was location and which was the thing…

ROW80 – 1st Round of 2019 Goals

In 2018, I failed again at NaNoWriMo. I have tried to write novel-length work many times and usually don’t finish the work. I often lose interest so how can I expect readers to remain interested? I did have some writing success though. My overall output of words per month definitely increased over the year, just…

About Me

I’m in my late-thirties. I’ve had a love-hate relationship with writing for as long as I can remember. Somewhere in lost notebooks are poems and short stories from as far back as junior high. Those improved over time. I don’t think the need for improvement will ever end. I’m a work in progress as much…
