Monday Motivations; What is My Foundation Made Of?
Hello friends and welcome to another willful week of writing. I’m thinking a lot this morning about why I succeed at nailing my goals on some days and why I crash and burn on others. What components make up a “good” day and what pitfalls appear on the “bad” ones? How can I build a… Continue reading
WIP Wednesday; The Eff It Stage
Hello friends and welcome back to your regularly scheduled edition of WIP Wednesday, where I vent my spleen about my current writing project.

Monday Motivations; Queen of Wands… Again
Hello friends and welcome to another wonky week of writing. Last week, despite my anxiety brain spending all its energy trying to convince me it wouldn’t work, I launched my two-pronged short-form fiction project, Drabble Rock.

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.
