If you follow me on Instagram (and if not, why not?), you will have seen the occasional “episode” post.

Turns out, I have inadvertently begun an episodic first draft flash fiction project. It’s been fun.

I’ve put up four episodes so far. I post when the fancy strikes me, usually once every week or every other week. I take photos when I’m out and use those as inspiration for an episode of this short story that I’m making up as I go along.

I don’t edit much, mainly for space and if my phone autocorrects anything incorrectly.

Briefly, the story is about people stranded on an island filled with strange creatures and weird happenings.

Now that I am beginning to amass more, I’ve decided I need a place to catalog them.

Spoiler alert: it’s here. This is the place.

Check out the This Island Episodes tab to read more.

Let me know what you think.

A Planning Pantser.

In fiction writing, there are typically two kinds of authors: planners and pantsers. Oftentimes, we fall into both categories, but lean one way or the other. I’m generally a pantser.

Planner or PantserPantsers are authors who ‘fly by the seat of their pants.’ They don’t plan much about the story’s direction, if they plan at all. I like to come up with a general idea and then see where the characters and my whims take me.

I am pleased to announce…I have an idea!

* * * shhh, shhh, I can’t hear over all the clapping and cheering * * *

More importantly, I have an idea of the direction of Book 2. No working title yet.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ll tell you this: Alice is a badass.

To hold you over until Book 2 is ready, why not buy Turning Point on Amazon now?
