Just Another Struggling Writer

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

The Ballad of Mercy May #0036


these buildings look lived in. Occupied, unlike the shells Mercy passed on her way in.

Homes of those who could not so easily leave after the city lost its luster.

Was that an observation of her own, or the entity’s? Mercy is disconcerted that she can no longer tell the difference.

Past the many lanes of ramshackle homes, the boulevard takes on a slight incline. The neighborhoods thin out until reaching some unmarked but understood boundary. On the hill, framed by the glowing embers of the setting sun, sit a row of nine impressive buildings.

Temples, Mercy knows at once.

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.
