Featured on Persephone’s Daughters – Sunday Stories, Spring 2017

Hello again, all!

I just wanted to let all of you know yet another exciting announcement: I have been featured in the Sunday Stories-Spring 2017 section of Persephone’s Daughters. The piece that has been featured is a non-fictional piece of mine called “My War Zone”.

However, I must give a TRIGGER WARNING for graphic language regarding past physical and sexual abuse. If this is too strong for you, please know that you are in no way required to read it, and I want to make that very clear. On the other hand, if you would like to read my piece and hear me speak up about some of the matters I and others have suffered through, you are welcome to browse through here and read my own story here.

Thank you all so much for your support, and I wish you all a wonderful week!

BRILLIANT Flash Fiction Writing Contest – Overseas Travel

Unfortunately, I won’t be posting the story here on my blog, because I will be trying to get it published. However, I feel that this was a pretty nice accomplishment: Getting into the third rounds.

Have a great day, all, and stay warm!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! Remember to wear green today and celebrate!

Also, may I interest you in a story of mine I have written for this day? Patrick’s Passage is my historical-fantasy take on a fragment of St. Patrick’s story. It is not meant to be taken as literal, because the only portion of the story that is actually true is that St. Patrick had to take a ship to England during his escape from Ireland.

Feel free to comment on the story. All feedback is welcome and appreciated, and I appreciate the comments that have been made on the story so far. Also, don’t forget to give your own rating for the story! All of this will help me immensely in my future writings.

Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look for a rainbow…

Moledro Magazine Issue 5 Release!

I am pleased to inform you that Moledro Magazine, Issue 5 has been released! My two poems, “Pandora’s Box” and “A Flashback” can be found within the magazine. These poems are about my own experience living with the memories of a series of traumatic events and being forced to relive them (PTSD). Although it is a difficult topic to approach altogether, I took care to make sure that no event was explicitly mentioned in either of these poems.

Click here to read my poems. To find a listing of all the issues of Moledro Magazine, click here. All contributor bios, including my own, can be found here.

I hope you all enjoy the magazine! Feel free to comment here, or via the contact form, what you think of my poems: whether you liked them or not, if you can think of any way for me to improve on my future poems, etc. Feedback is welcome and appreciated!

Have a wonderful day, folks!

A Few Brief Announcements For the Week

Hello all! I know it’s been a while, but I wanted to share a few announcements here:

I will be published on March 16, 2017, in two different publications: Moledro Magazine and Every Day Fiction. I will be posting their links as two separate posts on that day, and I welcome all of you to read my writings and make comments on them. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated. If all you want to say is “I can relate”, that’s totally fine. I love hearing from my readers and from other fellow writers! You can make the comments, if possible, on the website itself; if not, you can always either leave a comment on the post I will have here, or contact me using the “Contact” link listed above.

I was also offered an editor position, one which I gladly accepted. If you or anyone you know is between the ages of 14-21, you are more than welcome to submit to Apprehension Magazine, found here. I am so glad I got into such an amazing position here at Apprehension. You will be able to find me on their Masthead page sometime within the next few weeks.

Last remark: For any of you who tuned in to WLMU Radio last week but didn’t hear my radio show… don’t be shocked. I wasn’t around that week and was occupied with other matters. My plans are that the show will resume this Tuesday, same time: 10 A.M. to 11 A.M. I can’t wait to share the Featured Poet of the Week, the Positive News Story of the Week, and some music with all of you!

And those are all the announcements I have for now. Have a great week, everyone!

The Mistaken Sisters – A 6-Word Excuse Story

Some of you may have read some literary works from the famous Ernest Hemingway, or at least you may have a clue of his existence because he’s a famous writer. Many of you may or may not know of his famous 6-word story, one that has sparked the internet with the development of 6-word stories. There are even a few literary magazines that love and accept 6-word submissions.

As a result, I decided to join the club and write a few of my own six-word short stories. Currently I am participating in a contest with Six Words from SMITH magazine, and so I thought I’d share my submission here in addition to sharing it on Twitter. The theme was, basically, a creative 6-word excuse you might use when faced with a problem. Check out Six Word’s contest here and, additionally, you are welcome to view my submission via Twitter here. Enjoy!
