For the longest time, I felt I was a failure at being an author. It always seemed to take me forever to get something of significance finished, and what I wrote never felt complete. What in the world was I doing?
Today, I still feel it's taking me the longest to get anything (my novel) finished, but my short stories seem to strike like lightning! I have one short in the hands of the anthology owner currently, while another's being prepared to be shipped over with another publisher. I feel like I'm on fire!
My getaway to Blue Ridge Mountains was absolutely amazing! This place was more than I could have asked for during the Thanksgiving holiday. With no cleaning or cooking, I managed to not only relax and catch a cold, but I started and finished a short story, inspired by this location and my amazing husband- who gets killed in the story!
It's not really about him, but the namesake's there.
Who Am I?
My name's Alyssa and I'm just like you. Within me are stories, looking to be told. I do my best to relay them to the public, as magically as possible.
