"Fiction is a lie, and good fiction is the truth inside the lie." -Stephen King

I've recently started writing again on a regular basis. I've given myself deadlines for short story writing exercises (one of which is coming up in less than a week!), and I have been collaborating with friends on Round Robins, flexing my creative muscles both independently and through the challenges my co-writers throw at me. I've been enjoying writing more than I expected to. I've always loved it, yes, but I've been so inconsistent with it for so long that a part of me forgot what it felt like. And it feels gooooood! =)

I've decided to start digging a little deeper, though, by sucking it up and sharing my writing with you all. Some of the stories I will share will be Round Robins written alternatively with other people and will be completely unedited (unless otherwise noted). The others will be stories I wrote on my own each month (a countdown to the next story is on the left--if I don't meet my deadline, please nudge me!). These stories will mostly be using sentence prompts written for me by my dear friend LG to help me get the creative juices and motivation flowing again. I may toss in some other projects here and there as they come about: poems, prose, etc. So, be on the lookout! ;)

Please feel free to leave feedback and constructive criticism after reading each story. It has always been very difficult for me to share my writing. It's a little piece of my soul in one way or another and showing that to people can be terrifying for me. So, naturally please be sensitive and respectful while you help me improve! =)

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy! 

P.S. Some of the projects will be in link formats to a pdf, others will be in the blog content, depending on size. If you have any trouble viewing the pdfs, please let me know! I'm new to this embedding them in the blog thing so I might mess up now and again haha
