Welcome to The Gallery
“Find a subject you care about and which you feel others should care about. It is this caring, and not your games with language, that will be the most seductive element in your style.”
Why I Write:
If you think about it, with every artist, the work itself is a byproduct. The art is the journey, actually getting there. Once a painting is done there's nothing left for the creator to take from it; for lack of a better word, the finished piece is waste. So where does it go? Into a museum or gallery where the creator hopes other people will enjoy their work as much as they enjoyed making it.
This is my Gallery. These stories are my paintings. I wrote them. I know every inch of every paragraph, every thought of every character, every action, every word, every comma. There is nothing more for me to take from them, but you haven't seen them. And so I hope you enjoy them as much as I did, as much as I still do...except that I know what happens :)

On Receiving Reviews:
On Giving Reviews:
I sign my name to every review I give. I do this for a reason: If I said it, then I think my name should be on it, just as I think I should be able to reasonably answer for it. Of course if, at any time, you feel I've stepped over a line or would simply like to disagree you are encouraged to please contact me and tell me. We’ll get together, we’ll talk, we’ll sort it out, and then we’ll both walk away all the better for the experience.
Restitution (Chapter 4) by Victoria Hughes
Mom and Dad – I tell you every day what you mean to me. There's nothing I can say here that will ever compare with that.
My Teachers – From elementary school to high school to college you have been there at the sidelines cheering on the writer I didn’t even know existed. You saw my talent far before I did, and I’d like to thank you for encouraging my inner child to imagine and dream so she would never starve. She owes you her life, and I owe you a big thanks from the both of us.
My Betas – Darkwingpsycho, DelphinBella, Faye Chua, Neptune 47, thejennamonster, threeports: You guys are my crack team, my think tank, my—dare I say it—guinea pigs. I know real life is demanding and bothersome and you have a hundred things to do besides pointing out all my mistakes in my crappy first drafts. But, wouldn’tcha know, you do it anyway. My stories may be good, but you are the ones that make them superb. Thank you.
My Reviewers – Thank you for writing me something. I don’t care if it’s two words or two hundred words, the very fact that you took a moment to read my story and it was worth enough of your time to comment on says a lot. In a perfect world I’d be able to email each and every one of you back to thank you and talk with you for hours on your opinions. But, unfortunately, I can’t, so I’m hoping between my livejournal and this I get the point across: Thank you very, very much.
My Readers – I said before that I write because I love it, and it's true, but if it weren't for you guys my stories would die the second they left my head. You're the ones that keep them going, that give them life after I'm done with them. Thanks.
