Writing "Weight"

Today I have been working on "Weight," a short story involving a young woman, a greedy moneylender, and a dragon.  Total word count for "Weight," so far:  2730 words.

"Strands of Grass" to be Published

My short story, "Strands of Grass," has been accepted for publication in the upcoming CBAY Books anthology, One Thousand Words for War. The expected publication date is October 2015.
'Strands' uses a Japanese poem form called kishotenketsu for its plot structure. The idea was to create a story about some aspect of war, with no actual conflict in the story.
