Writing Style

As the mood takes me. I have some shorts that are dark and serious, but others are basically shitposts spun out in narrative form.

Writing Goal

My goal is is hours-in-chair actually writing (as opposed to administrivia, doomscrolling, etc.) I have some longer projects I might chip away at, but cranking out a few very short pieces wouldn't be a bad outcome, either.

Fundraising Goal

Modest in the extreme. A workshop like Clarion has never been in the cards for me, due to logistics and finances, and I'm not sure if I'd enjoy the intensive experience. But a lot of folks do thrive at workshops, and if I can help bring in any money to lower barriers for other writers, that'll be a net good.

writing goal:
40 hours in the chair
