hey there! i have recently formed a writing group in my town and i stumbled here while trying to find tips, exercises, and inspiration to bring to our next gathering. i'm excited by what i see here to far and i can't wait to be a part of these discussions. i have been writing for as long as i remember. in my mid-teens to late twenties i published my own zine. since then i have been working on a book – memoirish, but done in a short story compilation format. i am also writing other short stories on the side.
