For fun, this week I'm writing each of my friends a <500 word short story for Valentine's Day based on prompts that they give me. This will turn out to be about twelve stories in total. I do exercises like this to pull myself out of slumps (usually due to putting too much energy into my day job and not leaving enough for my writing time). More seriously, I have a novella-sized rewrite of the Beauty and the Beast tale that I'm planning out. This version draws from the figure of Elizabeth of Bathory, Gossip Girl, and my favorite stony buildings of Manhattan in the wintertime.
Hello, my name is Gina. I've been actively writing urban fantasy-styled short fiction for 12 years now, with an interest in moving into the publication world. I am looking for exposure to writers outside of my usual circle and a fresh perspective.
