It was a bit of a jolt to see my old piece "Creating Dynamic Characters" [E] featured in the Drama Newsletter today, under the heading "Are Your Characters Genuine?"! It was something I wrote so long ago but still very much believe in and try to follow in my work on a daily basis; seeing it posted there was a nice reminder that despite how I sometimes feel about myself as a writer, I do know what I'm doing. It made me feel proud, and I'm choosing to embrace that today instead of telling myself I don't deserve the small recognition
Happy Thursday my friends! (and thanks Hannah ♫♥♫ for forwarding that newsletter to me to make sure I read it lol You're the best!)
Happy Hump Day to all my WdC brothers, sisters, and non-binaries!
I am in no way formally affiliated with this contest, but I think it's a great contest for our community here and especially since it's Pride Month let's get a plethora of awesome LGBTQ+ stories submitted before the month is out! I am working on a short story to enter, and I would love to see many other great entries alongside mine to showcase the openness, inclusion, and solidarity that this great online community is all about!
I'm so excited and proud to have won 1st Place with my piece "Time's Lament" [ASR] for Lilli's "Rising to the Challenge!" [13+]! It was a pleasure to participate! And now I'm beginning to notice that all my poetry tends to turn out a bit... dark-side lol
