As with everything I create, the fiction is my own. I ask that you request that and link back to me or attribute my ownership if you choose to share it.

This fiction is just my fun fiction; my real fiction (the stuff I’m going to submit for publication in a book) is offline. But I take everything I share seriously. This should give you a sense of how I write.

May 7, 2013: I’m taking down the story I wrote in January through March, known as Garret the Woodsman, because I want to publish it as an experiment in self-publishing and eBook sales. I’ll let you know when it’s up. But here’s what I said about the story a few months ago:

What is Garret the Woodsman? It’s a story about a troubled young man whose obsession with the ecology and green living has consumed him and led him to commit crimes, and bizarre acts of self-mutilation. His best friend, Cynthia, has loved him since she first met him, but he is forever obsessed with his desires to save the world.

This content is written on a week-by-week basis hinged on a prompt shared by a crew of other female writers. It started in January 2013 as a writing challenge because bloggers tend to not write any fiction ever. I link to everyone in my posts.  I found the prompts from various online writing sources although I wrote all the prompts for March because I was unsatisfied with the prompts I found.

Garret the Woodsman tells itself to me as the weeks go by. Almost all the prompts were addressed within three hours of publication time; sometimes that’s pretty obvious. Once I post the chapters, I don’t edit them save for a typo here or there.

There is no plot line other than the one that reveals itself to me weekly as I write the story.

Let’s do this…

These entries below are sort of becoming their own little thing, and if I’m not careful I’ll figure out a way to blend the immediately above story into all of it as well….
