What I Write

Writing Sample

She was no poet, but she knew the traditional forms and found solace in their structure and economy of language. She enjoyed how forms that seemed at first to be impossibly limiting could take flight with multiple layers of meaning. One word, literal. The same word, evoking the season, or a time or place, or the truth or a lie, often all at the same time.

To wield a brush was to have one chance to put words onto the page, and as with wielding a blade there could be no hesitation, no doubt lurking within the hand, or it would show in the final result, be it on paper or in the parting of flesh. She went to the place of nothing and came back with words, her hand steady and flowing.

The sound of thunder
accompanied our meeting:
a midsummer’s rain.

It was twilight, but the heat from the day still clung to the air and the ink dried quickly. Britt gathered her writing tools. Tonight she would enjoy peace while she had it.

What I Write

I write fanfic, and I’m not ashamed to admit it, because it’s given me the confidence to begin wading into original work.

I strive to generate the most feelings with the fewest words.

My Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

Write, just write. I have two WIPs and will be working on both.

Fundraising Goals

More than zero! And I’ll personally match any donations up to a total of $1000.

All sponsors will receive weekly updates with a progress report of what I worked on. They’ll also include bonus content like:

  • behind the scenes looks at what I’m working on
  • ruminations on writing
  • background notes and commentary

I’ll be giving sponsors a chance to suggest what they’d like to see as bonus content as well.
