My Return to Writing: An Excerpt

As promised in a previous post, I'm excited to share the results of my recent burst of inspiration. This is a rewrite of the first chapter in a project I began years and years and years ago, which has sat, undisturbed, in my files ever since.

I've found it quite interesting, given this is a YA project. I've been drawn to my Adult Fiction works for a long time now, so rediscovering a YA voice has been a fun experience.

Anyway, without any further ado, I hope you enjoy reading this little excerpt as much as I liked writing it. And as always, feedback is welcome.

As I'm working with a budget, I'm also heavily restricted … Continue reading How about a new look?

Maybe that's a little premature. I've been on hiatus for like... A year? I've been creatively dead, to the point where I've questioned my entire future in writing, and it's been utterly heartbreaking. However, a few days off a certain medication, and I literally tossed and turned all night long before finally giving up at … Continue reading I’m back!
