About Me

What I Write

I write heavily character-driven stories that take place in whatever speculative context–fantasy, weird, sci-fi, horror–best fits the story. I love exploring the idea of what makes a person a person, and I often choose to do this by selecting characters that aren’t quite people–monsters, gods, beasts, programs, viruses, dreams, ghosts.

 

I have a nasty habit of killing fictional monkeys.

Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

The fun parts of writing:

Making shit up. Writing that feels like poetry while you’re doing it. When you’re in the flow of a good story and it’s pouring out of you. Taking naps to solve plot problems. Coming up with amazing ideas. Banging out a draft in two days. Getting feedback. Doing a redraft that feels like you’re finally moving in the right direction. Talking to brilliant writer friends about what your stories mean. Feeling like a genius.

 

The not-fun parts of writing:

Taking the above tangled knot of information and actually finishing a story.

 

I have four stories right now–three short stories and a novella–that are ready to finish. I don’t want to finish them because it’s hard exhausting work. I’m going to finish them anyway.

 

By August I will have all four of these stories ready for submission, if not already out with editors.

Fundraising Goals

$200! I’ve done it before I can do it again.
