Graphite and ink.
I can’t live without them. I need the feel of a pencil or pen in my hand and to hear the scratch of it upon paper. It’s a major part of who I am.
Most of my writing falls into one of two categories:
Given that I love to read all forms of fantasy, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I enjoy writing that type of fiction as well. Though it wasn’t by design; almost all my stories tend to be high fantasy, science fantasy or urban fantasy in nature. The muse likes what it likes.
I’ve been lucky enough to have a few short stories published over the years, but that format isn’t where my heart lies. I can’t say if it’s because I like challenges or because I enjoy getting to know my characters and the world in which they live but I prefer writing novel-length stories.
There’s plenty of ideas swirling around in my head at any given time, but I’m currently working on a novel-length high fantasy. You can view my progress using the meter in the sidebar.
While I love fiction, poetry is at the heart of my writing. Journaling for others is what poetry is for me. It provides me an outlet to understand myself and the world around me.
After considerable thought, I’ve decided to go through all the poetry I’ve written over the years and assemble a collection of chapbooks about love, life, and writing. More to come!
