Back to Writing!

Hey everybody! As I mentioned a little while ago, I’m currently working on a new novel! I took a small break from writing but will be getting back to it later today! I am very excited to continue working on this new project.

So what can I tell you about this new piece of writing that I’m working on? For one thing, it includes splash of romance in addition to being a fantasy. I came up with the idea after, for a few years now, having dreams about a crush that I had on someone from grades 1-5. For some reason, this person is constantly appearing in my dreams – even though I hardly ever think of him when I’m awake!

While I usually don’t read romance novels, I do appreciate a good love story. There have also been a few books that I’ve enjoyed that feature romance, especially James Patterson’s Sundays at Tiffany’s.

As many of you know, I enjoy writing fantasy stories and as a teen, I loved reading them. Naturally, I wanted to include fantasy in my current work and therefore, there will be some supernatural elements at play. The novel will be anything but your ordinary love story.

In addition to adding some romance to the story, another unique trait of the novel will be the style in which it is written. Without going into too much detail, it will be written in a way slightly different than the usual first or third person point of view. It will be easy to follow, but more complex in nature. This is a bit of a challenge for me, but I hope that it will be a very rewarding one at that.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peak into what I’m currently working on! Stay tuned for more information and don’t forget to check out my Instagram page! Thank you!

Hi everybody! I just recently posted a quote from my short story, Clarity, on my Instagram page. The story is one of the five short stories that can be found in my collection, Abstract Clarity, which can be purchased on Amazon.com.

Here’s a quote from another one of the short stories included in Abstract Clarity. The quote is from the story, Historical Hell.

About the Stories – Clarity

Hi everyone! I’d like to talk about the fourth and final story in my short story collection, Abstract Clarity.

The short story, Clarity, was in my opinion, one of the more difficult stories I’ve ever written. I really liked the idea as it was imaginative and fresh, but it wasn’t the easiest to write. For one thing, since it was so imaginative, it took a lot of thinking through. At the same time, however, it was the type of story that had a life of its own.

While a story that has a life of its own tends to be exciting, it’s also a bit hard to control. While as I writer, I tend to just come up with an idea and go from there, I still like to know where the story is going. I knew where I wanted Clarity to go and how to end it, but not every step of the way was, well, clear! Ironic, I know!

It was a bit difficult to figure out how to write Clarity in a way that was both fantastical and realistic. While the story is fiction, I still think that fiction needs to seem a bit realistic. In other words, I think it’s important that a reader can say to themselves Okay, this is different but really good and not this is so far fetched, it could never happen! I think fiction needs to have a balance of unrealistic, but at the same time – you have to be able to imagine it actually happening.

Like all my short stories included in this new collection, I’m quite proud of how Clarity came out. I really think I did a good job of creating something fresh and original, while still making it interesting and believable. I think that when reading Clarity, the reader can truly feel like they’re part of this magical world that I’ve created!
