I write fiction of all lengths.
In 2020 I published my first novel, Moments of Livvy, which came out around 90K words, and almost every day, I write micro-fiction pieces that are no more than a hundred words. I tend to get long-winded and the strictness of the ultra-short pieces help me overcome that.
I have taken method writing classes with Jack Grapes for six years now. That has filled up my writing toolbox and given me a much broader perspective of what makes for a compelling read than just plot.
I am a bit of a word nerd. I love words, and if they sound good and have more than one meaning, even better.
I like a good twist to keep me interested. For the past couple of years I have been drawn to fables and fairytales. I have experimented with how to bend their format and put them in the context of the 21st century. I have revisited Aesop, Hans Christian Andersen, The Brothers Grimm, and many more. Lately, I have been looking into The Arabian Nights and the mise-en-abyme concept. As an example that led to a flash fiction piece about a praying mantis named Shelby who told stories to prevent Queen Penelope from eating him after mating.
I would love to be part of a writing group of technical explorers. Writers who are also interested in peeking behind the curtain to see how the mechanics of a form or genre get the motor running, kicking its tires, and taking it apart to see if we can put it together again in a new and exciting way. Such a group would, of course, entail as much reading as writing. Because of my infatuation with brevity and to give everyone time to participate, I could see a limit of individual pieces between 500-1000 words.
Entity interested in the dynamics and point of it all. Explore and peer.
Hello, I'm a re-emerging writer. I have written poetry and short stories in my earlier life, simply for my own pleasure. Now I'm picking up the pen again and working on a novel of short stories and a poetry book. I want to start actively submitting my work and find an accountability partner to assist in attaining consistent writing goals.
I write from an African American -Women's prospective and would like to connect with writers that share this passion.
