(The Clarion Write-A-Thon fundraiser was...unsuccessful, to put it mildly. I wasn't able to drum up any donations for the workshop and subsequently my will to follow through on writing Unstable Future plummeted.

I wanted to take the time to get to know the principal couple for the whole thing, and what better way to do that then write about how they first met? I didn't want to … Continue reading Friday Fiction: Meet Ugly
