I started Mad Girl Writing to create a space for me to reflect on the writing life, and to let go of the fears and hesitations that come with artistic pursuit. Writing is messy and the toil can be lonely, so I like to process the behind-the-scenes here with writerly rants, tid-bits, and inspirations.
I write short story fiction and the occasional poem. I try to find the bigger picture in the everyday, but sometimes all I find is madness and sometimes all I have are questions. I enjoy sharing insights and moments of introspection.
I hope you’ll read something here that inspires a new perspective—or inspires you to keep writing. It’s true this is mostly a writer’s blog, but I also make up most things as I go along, and I may or may not have edited this page 100 times.
