Tag your love ❤️

I'm proud of my 2 Pushcart nominations & 2 Best Small Fictions nominations. I'm proud @matwrightpoetry & I founded @collectiveunrest. I'm proud I wrote a novella. I'm proud I reached out to authors I admire. I'm proud of bouncing back after rejections from lit journals & workshops & competitions. I'm proud that I worked up the courage to propose (even though I burned all of my fingertips off about four hours prior & I wanted to scream-cry). I'm proud that @ashokanson said yes & that we did the damn thing. Cheers 🍻

Don't ever forget why you started writing. Let it fuel & guide you. Ignore likes & comments. Submit to literary journals- learn about rejection. Take classes. Listen to critiques. Attend workshops. Write something every day. Put in the hours & sacrifice. Don't get a big head from internet humans™. Study your craft. Read read read. Read novels, novellas, nonfiction, lit journals (both online & in print), poetry, mixed-genre work. Engage authors who you admire. If you're serious about writing, you make writing your job, even if it costs you $ to do it.

An oldie. I hope everyone is well. Please DM me if you're interested in ordering a custom poem from me.
