Short Stories, Poetry, & Miscellaneous Works
Welcome to my folder for my newer creative works and miscellaneous site-related items, short and long. After a long dry spell, I returned to WDC in January of last year and resolved to write, learn, and grow. Most of the works here—over 80 poems and 13 short stories
—were written in 2019 thanks to that resolution, which I'm keeping alive for 2020, as well! I hope that, by reading these, you might be transported out of your reality—if only for a moment—and drawn into mine.
My goal is to write as often as I can and polish my craft. I love words, but I am always looking for ways to tighten my writing and make every word count. As such, I create a lot of items for fun daily contests like "The Writer's Cramp
. The downside to that, of course, is that portfolio space is not infinite. To maximize my ability to write and to conserve space, I have chosen to make fiction and poetry compilations. Though I'll delete most short, stand-alone static items, I hope to move many of them over to a compilation. If you're looking for a particular work and can't find it, chances are it's been transplanted into one of these...
Thanks so much for taking a look!
