It’s been quite a while since we last talked, but so much has happened since then.
If you’re not a Patron, you probably aren’t aware of the number of short stories I’ve published on my website and on Patreon, all of which can be purchased or viewed on my website.
That said, I’m looking forward to finishing up THE DARK WORLD series at last and finally moving forward with new stories!
The email was all about her latest blog post where she showcased 15 books by black authors readers should read for Halloween.
I scrolled through it, admittedly hoping my name would be on there — and it was!
I just as in JUST NOW started writing the short story THE UNWANTED GUEST, this is that haunted house short story I said I was gonna write like a year ago. I’m finally get around to it. Before this, though, there were three other fairly short in both length and depth stories that I wrote for the month of October to get new readers.
But this one, the haunted house one, it’s different from the jump.
I’ve long been struggling (as you may know by the frequency of these posts) to continue writing creatively (being in school, writing academically is something else entirely), and I figured being forced to give content on a regular basis would give my creative juices a push and also help me supplement life (and spread the word about the books I already have in stores).
We needn’t paint obtuse colors of expression on our character’s faces all the time (I was a fan of this when I first started writing), their dialogue and small mannerisms can help paint a picture that can, with every little nuance, create a greater, more believable world.
