Writer Bio

While I've been writing all my life, I haven't published any prose outside of fanzines that I was a part of publishing (I have had two poems published). I've sent out one story several times, getting a lot of form rejections and one very nice, helpful rejection from Aldys Budrys, calling my story "consistent, and often clever". I still have it!

Writing Style

Bauhaus Seat of The Pants Kitch. I guess? I'm not pro enough to know what this is, lol.

Writing Goal

2K words. Well, that's for my fundraising, but my real goal is more like 20K. I know I can do it, I just *haven't*. If you know me, you know how hectic life gets. But my autistic son is doing well at his job, and my living situation is stable, so it's time to stop flailing and SIT THE EFF DOWN AND DO IT.

Fundraising Goal

Since this is my first year, if I raise ANY funds, I'll be excited. But I apply to Clarion most years, and if I get in I'll need a scholarship - which is where most of these funds go. Help me pay in advance! :D

writing goal:
2000 words written
