Sophisticating the Rudimentary

With this site I make my contribution to the web with words. I’m going to be using this web log as a place to share my own original creative writing. Some pieces may be older, some newer. Some pieces will be believable, some obviously fantastic. As a disclaimer, anything posted on this blog should be regarded as fiction, unless otherwise stated.

As the name implies, I approach “Sophisticating the Rudimentary” as a way to motivate myself to write, hone my fledgling skills as a storyteller, and share my works-in-progress with a larger audience. I ask you read each post with a critical eye. What doesn’t make sense? Where are there gaps that need to be filled? Where do gaps need to be left open? What would be a fun place for the story to go? What more do you want to know? What should be left to the reader to understand? Please do not hesitate to leave critical feedback on any or all of the pieces on my site! Improvement is the motivating reason to keep this blog. Also, please feel free to share my work with readers whose feedback you think my pieces might benefit from. As I continue to work, I update my pieces on the site in the hopes that we can track this process of revision together.

I look forward to having other eyes than my own on the work as it is all, in my eyes, a work in progress.

Yours in letters,
