Hello and Welcome to this blog of fiction fantasies.
I am Courtney Sloan, and I am brazenly taking my first bold steps into the fast paced world of fiction writing. Okay, you caught me. I am actually peering around the corner into this exciting world that I’ve watched from the shadows for many years.
In my sane, a relative term, day job, I help college students and other writers hone their craft, but a surprise came from all this helping. My skills began to grow and gain the notice of those around me. People I respected started to ask about my writing. Stories began to take on a life of their own, and I did the only thing I could. Hold on for dear life and see where these characters took me.
And so here I am.
Attempting to make this madcap dream a reality, I have started this blog to share this growth and journey with others out there. From the trials of writing and revising, to the tricks I learn from other writers I learn from, to industry practices and simply musings on writing, I want to share it here in the hope that I can share from others. We can learn from each other. I also hope to update on my latest projects and stages of work, as well as give tid-bits from new works and stories.
I know there is so much to learn. So, hang on and let’s see where this crazy ride takes us.
