Something NEW For this Blog: Introducing Short Stories

Hello everyone!

For the most part my blog has focused on Writing Tips, some poetry, Blogmas, and my reading list. However, I am about to add something new to my blog and I hope you enjoy it!

I somewhat apologize for the High School Musical reference but I honestly couldn’t help myself.

In approximately 12 hours (at 9amPST on January 9th), I will be posting the first part of a four-part short story tilted Redemption that I published in 2015. I will then post the subsequent parts in the following days.

These words first met print in The Dazed Starling and follow the complex life of Galia, a young resident of an insane asylum. This fictional piece is one of my first published pieces and as such, is close to my heart. I really hope that each of you will enjoy reading it and more importantly, that you will let me know your opinions in the comments.

Dazed Starling

I hope to hear from you then!

Happy Writing and Reading Everyone!

Do I blame the insomnia on my profession as a writer? Or do I blame my profession as a writer on my insomnia?

What is it about writing that seems intricately related to insomnia? Is it that we have so many ideas going around in our heads that we cannot sleep? Perhaps somewhere inside our brains, there is a horde of characters, protagonists and antagonists working together, just sitting on our hypothalamus poking it with large sticks every time we lay down to sleep. They want their story told and so they will keep poking and prodding until they have been heard, until we have recorded their accounts.

Any other writers out there who struggle with this menace known as insomnia?
