Connection

It’s been many years since I started my writing journey. I’ve always thought of myself as a fairly mediocre writer. I’d read other’s perfect prose and marvel at their skill, their ability to bring words to life. I  devoured books and tried to learn as much as possible about grammar and spelling rules – some alien and wholly confusing to my non-english brain. In the beginning this learning was done through library and school books, but as technology advanced my focus turned to the ever convenient internet. Continue reading

Back and forth down the hallway, resembling a drunken duck on an iced pond.  My eyes sauntered over her grossly obese body, taking in every inch of the absurdity. Many people have told her she’s pretty, but they were lying—a desperate bid of the polite to spare her feelings. Continue reading

A very (very!) rough draft of Chapter 1 & 2 of my new novel

Chapter 1

The creaking of the door’s telltale sign of a visitor drew Jade’s attention for only a moment.

“Jade? Where are you?” It was a rhetorical question. Kelly knew exactly where Jade was. As she entered the living area her eyes darted over the room before coming to rest on Jade. It was as if the girl hadn’t moved since the last time Kelly was there. She sat crossed legged, her heavily pregnant form slumped forward—as if the weight of her womb dragged her toward the floor.

Regrets

Regret

Most people, at some point or another in their life, have regrets.  We look back and wonder why we did some of the things we did, why we made the decision we made or went into a specific direction when our gut told us otherwise.

I recently made a decision about which I had some serious reservations. It was one of those moments where I had to decide if I wanted to take the moral high ground, or go against my better judgement to prove a point. A sort of, cut of my nose to spite my face situation. So, here I am now – without a nose. Continue reading
