Work from home!

This kind of sounds like me a long time ago.

I wrote 100 short stories I’m glad you’ll never see

Some learning tips from this article:

“The one consolation through all this was that my stories did improve β€” slowly β€” and I was just aware enough of my shortcomings as a fiction writer to keep sloughing layers of dead skin. ”

“Looking back at them now, these stories that once seemed so wild and vibrant now seem amazingly bland, because the characters are nondescript. Literally, “nondescript” is the best word for them β€” they’re not really described very well, and they’re mostly ciphers on which a bunch of action is hung. The stories are over before they really get going, or they drag on and on without developing anything.”

Two things I love to do the most include graphic design and writing. I was an editor at a publishing company for several years; I saw the graphic designers at work and thought, 'I'd like to do that.' So I went to art school. I love to read, write and draw. Yes, I am a creative nerd type. I like to read all kinds of books, but science fiction and fantasy is my guilty pleasure. Why am I keeping this blog? It's just a place to keep my thoughts. My brain is getting too full to store them all, so this place is a good annex.
