Two New Short Stories Now Live!

Published via Burial Day Books and Mookychick

I’ve been a bit busy writing articles lately, so I would have posted this news sooner but here goes – two of my short stories were published in the last few days by two different sites!

You can find my short story The Collector over at Burial Day Books, it tells the story of a ghoul chasing down his victim. This was an idea that I had and made the first draft of back when I was at university. It was a story that always stayed with me and so I recently edited it and now it’s available to read.

For something else in the realms of darkness and folklore, you can check out my story Huldufólk over at Mookychick! This story is based on Icelandic folklore, focusing in particular on the elves who are believed to reside in rocks there. To this day there are superstitions about these faery-folk causing disruptions on construction sites when people attempt to clear away the earth that they call home.

I hope you are all well!

NaNoWriMo is here!

Ok so I’m a day late out of the starting blocks due to a horrendous cold, but I am on it starting from today! Though it’s not the norm for NaNoWriMo, I’m not starting a new project, but instead using this month as a tool to concentrate some more on Wolfrik. Of course, I’ll only be counting the words I add in from today!

Recently I’ve been doing so many short stories and been on a competition submission spree that I’ve neglected my main novel and so this feels like a good way to get back into it. Mixing it up feels healthy to me and so I think a solid month of novel writing will be refreshing after all those short stories.

If you’ve never taken part in NaNoWriMo before, then I urge you to check it out and get those creative juices flowing! It’s such a brilliant writing community and could be the perfect excuse to write that story you’ve always wanted to!
