"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." Sylvia Plath It seems like I always manage to find my way back here one way or another, and it's no surprise I consider Protagonize my writing home. We all come home eventually, right? It's kind of awesome that this year, I was published for the first time. I submitted a short story to an anthology - not just any anthology, but a charity one that supports Alzheimer's research. [It's also dedicated, with permission, to Terry Pratchet, and how cool is that?!] If you're interested, you can purchase it off Amazon. It's called The Longest Night Watch volume 2. [Did I mention all proceeds go to charity? So not only will you get to read a collection of amazing stories, but you'll be kicking butt and fighting Alzheimer's disease, which makes you a rock star in my mind.] Now I'm on an anthology kick, and I'm flexing my short story muscles. I'm also dipping my fingers in different genres - paranormal thriller and fantasy. I still craft mysteries and explore psyches in literary fiction, but I'm having a blast exploring new-to-me genres.
