I’ve been busily making art banners for authors participating in the July 2016 Rough Trade Writing Challenge hosted by Keira Marcos. July’s challenge is to write three short stories in any fandom fused with The Sentinel. My first attempt to write fiction was last year when I participated in the July 2015 challenge and since then, my world has expanded so much this year. I’ve made some great online and real life friends by stopping my lurking tendencies.
I recently participated in April’s Rough Trade completing my London Spy/Sherlock crossover fix-it story, Find My Love. It’s such a hard thing to write during challenge and post the work in it’s first rough draft form, but the engagement and support space that Keira’s created for newbie and veteran writers alike is a safe place to experiment and explore the craft.
I won’t be participating as a writer in for the challenge in July, but I’ll be an avid reader of the works being posted. I’m currently working on the third and final story in my Criminal Minds (Sentinel Fusion) series Transference to celebrate my first year of writing. Transference was the first story I ever wrote and since then I’ve completed ten stories and 224,043 words in the fandoms of James Bond, Criminal Minds, and Sherlock. Divergence will be my eleventh story and is scheduled to be posted by the end of July.
In other Nut related writing news, I’m the new moderator for the 00Q Reverse Big Bang Challenge! So, a bunch of new 00Q Artworks and Stories to come in January 2017! I’ll be posting more on that in just a few weeks!
