My Writing

Shadow

After a gap of few months I have another piece of fiction published. You can read my story Shadow in the latest issue of Halfway Down the Stairs.

I’m rather proud of this story, if I say so myself. I believe every creative person, especially women, should be able to identify in some way with the main character. But that’s just my hope – read it and let me know if that comes across!

This story has spent a while in the making. I’ve been hacking away at it every few months much like the sculptor in my story, tweaking some aspects and chopping off parts that seemed redundant or unnecessary. When I finally got it into a shape I liked best, I sent it out and was rewarded with an acceptance.

I’ve been reading Halfway Down the Stairs for quite a while, since writer Anne Goodwin mentioned she had published a story there. I perused a few issues and liked what I read.

That’s all I have in lieu of a proper blog post today! Watch out for a humor piece of mine that will appear sometime next week!
