Just Another Struggling Writer

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

The Ballad of Mercy May #0034


is creeping steadily westward across the sky, casting a warm, orange glow around the otherwise cold stone streets. How much longer does she have before it sinks fully beyond the horizon? How likely is it that a resident (assuming she could even find one) would offer her a place to stay the night?

Swallowing the hopelessness rising in her throat, Mercy set off wandering once more, without any real clear thought or direction for where her feet carry her.

The square with her fountain eventually gives way to a robust marketplace. Stalls line half a dozen alleyways that split off

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.
