It’s been a long time. A lot happened in the last year in my personal life. A lot of bad followed by an incredible amount of good. I won’t get into specifics but what I can say is that after April 2017 my writing came to a screeching halt. But since January of this year I’m back – with a vengeance!
For 2018 I set myself a few steep goals. I want to write 10 short stories and be professionally published for the first time. I’m happy to say that I’ve already achieved writing the 10 stories this year. I’m following the advice of my favorite authors Ray Bradbury by churning out short fiction. Each story an improvement on my ability as a writer and my strength in the craft.
I’m only submitting to top markets, that is markets that will pay me at the industry standard that SFWA identifies as .06 a word. It’s a numbers game but my love for flash fiction allows me to get quite a bit out there. I’m hopeful of my goals and will do a much better job of posting here for updates.
It’s good to be back!
