WDC is a big ocean of writing and it's easy to get lost.
To help you find your way around my port, I've put together a short surfing lesson. Grab your suit and board and let's hit the waves!
If you learn anything from this lesson, I'd love a review so I can continue to provide the best surfing lessons possible. Thank you!
These pieces are brand new and seeking reviews! (newest things are at the top)

Before we get into the lesson, let’s watch a short highlights reel. Someone else enjoyed these items, so maybe you will too!
What sound does the ocean make when you really listen?

You won't need your surfboard to ride these ankle bitters. Extremely short poetry and "tweet" length writings I tend to put in my blog ("A Piece Of My Heart" 18+: A blog to house my musings, curiosities, and fascinations. ), so feel free to leave a comment or send me an email. I'd love to know what emotion you felt while reading the poems and if I was able to tell a complete story in the tweets. Thank you!

Let's start off small. Grab your sand board or, like me, you can body surf if you prefer! I'd love to know your thoughts on the imagery and emotion in the pieces. I'm starting to experiment more with form/structured poetry, so any pointers would be very helpful. Thanks!

Grab your funboard and we'll take a stab at some slightly longer pieces. Below are a selection of my longer essays and short stories for your perusal.

I see a heavy set coming in now. We may need a tow in for these suckers. The first folder contains all my writings pertaining to my character, Special Agent Ella Colson. She doesn't know how to hold her tongue, and I have a bit of fun putting her through tough situations just to see how she'll cope, so the rating is a bit higher. Enter at your own discretion. The second folder is the current project I’m working on. It’s in a very rough state still, so any comments you have are appreciated!
| ||Agent 038 (GC)|
All items pertaining to the story of Special Agent Elizabeth Colson (A-038)
