In the past, two of my flash fiction pieces, Other and Together and Red and Green, won first place and runner up, respectively, in writing contests. Although the contests were minor, I was thrilled and encouraged (maybe it was a sign à la The Alchemist?). I work full-time as a journalist, but being a novelist has been and always will be my dream.
So, in an effort to make my life goal come true, I am working on a novel and keeping my fingers crossed that somehow it will be successful. In the meantime, I am posting flash fiction and short stories here to keep my writing muscles flexed. 🙂
For those interested in reading more about my thoughts on novels, please check out my sister site, The Book She Read.
Thank you for reading!
UPDATE: I have stopped posting as of February 2015 because I’m working to complete my first book! It is currently out to beta readers, and I hope it will be on bookshelves soon (or eventually…).
