Writing Journal Update 1

Update: I am now offering my services as an editor. Click here to read more.


Update 2: I’m currently working on my two psychology courses: Positive Psychology and the Psychology of Aging. Just as a reminder, I will be attending a 10-week online horror writing workshop starting in June.


“Dashes to Ashes”: This creative nonfiction essay is now available online! Click here to read it.


“The Life of a Butterfly”: This piece of flash horror fiction has been accepted at Trembling With Fear. It follows the life of a fairy desperately trying to get the attention of humans. I will post a link when it is published on their site.


“Lithium”: This creative nonfiction essay has been accepted by On Loan From the Cosmos. It details the exploration of the self through the eyes of an individual with bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I will post a link when it is available.


“Mother, Where Did I Come From?”: This piece is an incredibly personal flash creative nonfiction piece that came to me after stumbling across a writing prompt asking me to detail how I first learned about sex. What followed was the result of my mother’s teachings through the filter of her own experiences as a victim of childhood sexual abuse.


“Olfactory Memory”: Again, this story has been published in Five on the Fifth! Here is a link: http://www.fiveonthefifth.com/vol-5-issue-7-story-1.


“Untitled Paranormal Romance Novel”: Nothing on this yet besides the fact that it’s set in the Victorian Era, and I have to do a ton of research on the period for the novel to work well.


Personal Readings: The Red Tree by Caitlin R. Kiernan (horror, novel), Cold Iron Heart by Melissa Marr (historical fantasy, novel), Lady Bits by Kate Jonez (horror, short story collection), The Lost World by Michael Crichton (audiobook)


Stay tuned for my blog post on writing resources. Keep writing!
