Just Another Struggling Writer

The lamentations of yet another person struggling to write a novel.

Drabble Rock; February 21, 2023


Mhazara shifted in the chair she was tied to, her shoulders aching. “I don’t know how the Gift is supposed to work,” she said, annoyed by the whole situation, “but mine doesn’t do what you’re asking. I can’t read people’s minds. If I’m lucky I get a glimpse of what they’re feeling at any given moment, but I can’t always control it.” That was a lie, and yet the truth. She couldn’t control the Gift – it was simply active m. “I’m obviously not the person you’re looking for.”

“No,” the elf said stubbornly. “It has to be you.”

About Me

Kerry Share’s love for writing started, as it so often does, as a love of reading at an early age. At age 11 she wrote her first short story, a Harry Potter knockoff of dubious quality, and her love for creative expression was born. Throughout her teen years she continued to foster that passion through derivative work, and at 23 she turned her eye to original fiction.

Now in her thirties, having taken a break from creative endeavors to cope with an ever changing life and landscape, she is determined to make her dream of a writing career reality.
