Hey Reader,

Writing is an art.

It can be a dream. Or a lesson.

It can be an outlet. A challenge.

Writing isn’t technical like many try to point out. All of the plots and themes and characters that go into the stories we write are just the tip of the iceberg. The sentence structure and rewriting and research is just everything that comes along with it. Writing isn’t about working for the reader or getting the longest word count.

Hi, my name is David Strickleton, and this is a blog all about writing fiction. I have been writing mostly short stories for the last ten years, a selection of which I have published on Amazon Kindle under the title, "Nameless and Other Stories". I have also published my first novel, "The River" (also available through Amazon Kindle) it is a Y/A story about 18 year-old Patrick who along with a girl travels to America to save a reclusive musician from a fate Patrick has glimpsed through prophetic dreams. I am currently working on short stories and am hoping to have on of my latest pieces, "Anemone" included in an anthology. Along the way, I am trying to soak up as much advice and wisdom about the art and craft of writing fiction as possible. To this end, I thought it would be a good idea to start my own blog on this subject and hopefully engage other readers and bloggers with shared knowledge and opinions.
