So I thought I would talk about where the inspiration of my short story Witches in the Woods came from and why I chose this to be my first published work. Witches in the Woods is actually based off of a short story I wrote for a competition my ninth grade English teacher was holding for all of her classes. It was the first story I wrote that was more than just a page or two for an assignment. This is also when I realized that I love to write. When I got second place in the competition (she said it was because my ending was a little rushed, of which it was because I was reaching my page limit) I realized that I had a knack for it. That is where it all began.
Though I had not thought about it in quite some time, when I decided to give Amazon publishing a try it just seemed right to pull up that old story and do a major rewriting of it. I can honestly say that only the very basic story-line survived the revision. Not to mention it took a few turns I had not originally anticipated, but the end result is significantly improved from the original. I am still very pleased with how it turned out, and overjoyed that Witches in the Woods is once again the beginning of a new path in my life.
