As I explore the different types of writing I hope to develop my writing skills and find what I excel at the most. I’m sure I’ll improve over time.
I have plenty of ideas waiting to be developed in my Writing Portfolio (incomplete). Besides two short stories and one novel, I have about ten ideas at stage 1 development. Plus a word document of other potential ideas as they are thought of.
- Short Fiction: 5 short stories, 1 being revised for submission
- Topical Stories
- Nonfiction & Creative Nonfiction
- Novels (long term projects/excerpts)
- Book Club: Creative Responses & Reviews
6 Stages of Writing Development

Stage 4: Draft 3: (plus revising, proofreading & editing)
