Writer Bio

Unpublished in this reality... MK. --- Like a Phoenix rising from the ash, my words will again materialize. Occult, but not eternally lost... Phoenix J Pax

Writing Style

Hard and soft science fiction although I'd like to dabble in slipstream and surrealism.

Writing Goal

My goal works out to be 250 words a day for the 6 weeks. I will allow freewriting about various story elements, such as character, plot, scene, setting, etc. to count for words. As the Write-A-Thon progresses, I expect to write more prose than freewriting material. A few months ago I made myself accountable to Facebook friends and family for my novel Alienus Tempus which I originally began about 11 years ago. I am very serious about penning this near future scifi novel. I believe this Write-A-Thon could be an important step for me.

Fundraising Goal


writing goal:
10500 words written
