Adjunct and Writer

I write fiction, and I teach. That pretty much sums up my life during the school year. In the summer, I write even more and spend insane amounts of time outside.

Being adjunct can be tough because I have drive a lot and don’t get benefits,  but I am fortunate enough to have a part-time tutoring job that adds some stability to the mix.

Furthermore, adjuncting supports my writing habit without stifling it. I get summers off and a weird schedule, leaving me plenty of time to type up the stories overloading my brain, revise them obsessively them send them off places and practice copious amounts of rejectomancy.

I’ve only been trying to publish my short fiction for a few months, so I’m happy to say I’ve had three pieces published so far.

The first, “Above the Influence”, was published by Mashstories.com.

Constellation Run and Un-Rung were published on 101words.org.

The others are forthcoming from Fantasy Crossing and Sick Lit Magazine.

I’ll post links to them when they are available!

Follow my blog for insight into the life of a writer/teacher, tips on writing, and tips on teaching. I may post the occasional story or vignette too.
