Whew, this month is full of updates!
I've started a new Instagram account. I decided that I wanted to start posting more poetry online and this is a way for me to do that. I'll be posting excerpts of my poetry as I'm working on it.
Basically, I've had a personal Instagram for years but never really did much with it but post cat pictures. :) Now I have a poetry-only dedicated account for you to follow.
I hope to see you there!
I've got a new post up at Curious Fictions for subscribers. This one's about how we can learn to love ourselves as artists. How do we negotiate the market and the successes of others? Once you start publishing your work, where do you go from there?
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
I've got a new subscriber-only post at Curious Fictions about Tolkien, managing your career as a writer, and basically launching my new and exciting stuff for 2018! Read it here.
I'm now posting subscriber-only content and reprints of my pro-market stories at Curious Fictions.
