A Judge is Now Secured ~
This weekend I will be sitting down with local published author Patricia Miller to review all of the fantastic entries submitted to the 1st Annual Short Fiction Contest with Infinite Pathways.
I look forward to announcing the top 3 winners and honourable mentions on Monday February 24th, 2014. Anyone who has requested a Creative Critique will receive their feedback by the end of the month. I will include comments not only by me, M.J. Moores, but our guest judge too.

Creativity is the unseen magic that seeps out of a person’s soul and touches whatever he or she crafts. Creativity is the glue that seals every newborn project with brilliance and flair. Creativity is an always inspiring, sometimes frightening, omnipresent, and strangely powerful gift that’s free for the capture.

WHY I WRITE:
I write because I have stories to tell and I love the process.
I write because I love words and seeing them appear on paper or a screen.
I write for fun.
I write for a sense of completion.
I write because it makes me happy.
I write because I am a Writer.
