Warning:) If we are friends, your blind-date-gone-ary or your wacky dinner party could end up being the basis of my next short story! Greetings, fellow writiers. My name is Carrie and I have a strange passion for writing about the quirky events of my life and those around me. (My friends all get a chuckle when their likeness ends up in a story of mine!)
As a speech therapist in a long term care/ rehabilitation hospital, I have the honor of listening to countless stories told to me by my dear patients. Stories of grit and grief, humor and heartache, I have mentally annotated this oral wisdom in my head for a decade. My goal is to compile these collective life experiences, mix it with a bit of creativity and a sprinkling of imagination to create a fiction novel.
To that end, I am practicing various writing styles, perspectives, settings, and genres in the form of short stories in order to gain insight and experience. I welcome the feedback and expertise from the writers on this site.
