I write fiction.

I write a lot of fiction. Short fiction and novelettes, mostly. I generally submit my fiction to literary journals and magazines, and collect rejection letters. Sometimes I publish my stories here on my blog.

I keep this list as updated as my easily-distracted and indecisive mind allows.


I’m still writing, submitting, and collecting rejection letters for my fiction for this year. I’ll post some new links, soon.
