Because I Like Making Stuff Up

I'm a writer. Which separates me from approximately 12% of the world's bloggers.

Er...sorry. I meant 2%.

Once in awhile, on my day blog, I have the urge to share a bit of my fiction. I did it once and received a lot of surprisingly kind words of encouragement. 

And, honestly, who doesn't like getting heaped with praise?

Along my ongoing journey toward total blogoverse domination, I've discovered some great writers and great writing blogs. There are exercises and memes and events and I often have the urge to participate. I jut never wanted to fill up my regular blog with fiction. So I haven't done it.

But, the other day, it occurred to me that I just needed a little space where I could share short stories and novel excerpts and characters studies and all the other things that strike my fancy while still writing about all the other stuff from my real life on the other blog.

And so, I present to you my make believe world. The place where you can read about the stuff that didn't happen to me, but to the people that live in my brain.

Feedback is always appreciated. As long as it's constructive and doesn't make me cry.

why didn't i think of this? I don't think many people like fiction on my day blog.
