Hello everyone and welcome back once more!
This post is going to be a little short and it won’t be a rant. So Last Friday, after the incident (if you’re not sure what that was, feel free to read the post before this one). I came home to a response from a potential agent. who informed me that “getting short stories off the ground for a new writer is hard. Especially, if that writer doesn’t have any of those stories already published. Good luck somewhere else.” Not going to lie, that hurt my pride a bit. But then i decided to look on the bright side; 1.) she didn’t say my writing sucked; so that’s a plus. 2.) starting from the ground for her, might simply be too time consuming. 3.) I’m gong to take some of her advice. WordPress is my platform, Before WordPress I had Xaynga (I know we’re going back) until that site basically shut down and I lost all my work! Fast foreword to now, I decided to either add a page or make a new WordPress that is linked to this WordPress that will be specific for my stories! Now I know not everyone will like them; and I was a little worried about someone stealing my work. But like with most things in life, one must take a risk. I’m constantly talking about my writing, And what’s a writer without readers? Essentially you guys are my target market. I figure I’ll start posting some stories here, I could build up a “fan base” and from there hopefully agents will find me to be more marketable. If no agent still wants me by the time Income Tax comes, I’m going take a proportion of that money and self-publish; it’s 2018 time to get the ball rolling. I have a lot of stories bouncing around in my head and I would love to share them all with you. The best part about the blog is, hopefully someone will like my stories and give me some feedback. Or suggest a writing prompt! I’ll be sure to keep up with both blogs! Once I have the other site set up; I will edit this post with the link.
Once again, thanks to all my loyal readers and to engaging with new ones!

I hope you enjoy my work, and I hope to hear your feedback.
