I learned the hard way to keep ‘unused scenes’, bits of dialogue or descriptions, clips, and phrases, etc, of my writing. Now I have a folder on the hard drive named ‘unused’. It’s full of documents and subfolders full of documents. I learned these things can be reworked, remolded, edited, and used elsewhere. In writing, not much is ever truly ‘wasted’.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I Sim, I TikTok, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my life partner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
