I am an amateur writer, and while I do have some original fiction, I greatly enjoy writing fan fiction. I have been writing since I was seven. My "Grammy" encouraged me to write her a story while we were enroute to her house (a good six hours from home) one Holiday season, and when we arrived she happily took my hand written (and blatantly plagiarized) story, corrected and proofed it, then typed it up.
The day we left to return home she presented the story to me typed, titled, and bearing my name under the word "author". I could not have been more delighted, and her simple act of encouragement shoved me into the wonderful world of literature.
I invite you to read anything you choose, and as always, I love reviews.
This school year was taxing and exhausting. The last couple of months I've had to take a hiatus from writing, just to get through the school year. In it's place I've been doubling down on research for my WW2 reenacting impression. That means an awful lot of time spent reading about and becoming intimately familiar with combat medicine during the conflict.
Recently I had the opportunity to run an "aid station" during a WW2 battle reenactment. From the moment that the first "patient" arrived, to the end of the battle, I couldn't tell you what anyone else was doing. Every moment I was focused on the safety of our station, the young kids serving as medics, and getting "wounded" off the field as quickly and safely as possible.
Later I asked the gentleman who had played a surgeon what he had been doing through the battle. "Surgery." He said. "Whatever you didn't do, I did."
A mere taste of what it would have been like to serve as a nurse, doctor, or medic in combat, and there are still gaps in my memory of what happened during that very brief battle. This experience is what prompted my most recent story, "The Look" and deepens my appreciation for veterans, especially those in the field of medicine.
Thank you for your service!
