Welcome! I started this blog about the craft of writing in 2009 as an experiment in my undergrad days. Back then I was a Municipal Liaison for National Novel Writing Month. I started a journey to help inspire beginning writers. Since then, I have self-published novels, ebooks, and have traditionally published short stories. Now that I’ve completed my MFA, I’m returning to my roots and the idea that as writers we can inspire each other. DarWrites was respanwed in 2016 with the intent of helping writers the world over learn craft and have fun doing it. If you love writing, reading, and all the babble and drama that comes with both, this is the site for you. This blog is for you, the writer, on your journey. I hope that you’ll find a friend here, and more than that – inspiration for creativity. So read a little…and then go do your work!
