Featuring short stories and novellas for lovers of fantasy and horror!



Posted by Sara Vance-Hogan on February 2, 2014 at 9:30 PM

So it's  been quite a long time since I've been active on this website. But now, having to endure insomnia even though I'm super freaking tired from having an 8 month old to take care of (who doesn't sleep through the night, by the way), I have become much more active with my writing. As you probably know, I am currently editing my short story "Escape." You will find a few chapters already posted on the Horror website.

I am also working on a book that I've BEEN working on for several years now, called "Dancing with Dragonflies." It's a young adult fantasy adventure. I'm close to halfway finished with the first draft. It's taking a long time to write the complete the story, but I feel like this is one people will love if they like that genre, so it's worth the extra time.

And now, I'd like to have a bit of a feel-sorry-for-me rant.

I wish my family and friends showed more support for my writing than they do. They tell me I'm a good writer and they "love my stuff," yet no one says anything when I post something new, no one shares any new content to help me spread the word, and when someone new finds out I write and have a few books out, they're always super excited at first and want to read my stuff NAO, but then I never hear back from them.

Don't think I don't know what this means. They think I suck. And hey, maybe I do, but I wish they would be honest with me and not pretend like they're so supportive and love my work when they do dick about showing it. I don't like being lied to. Honestly, I don't know why I bother posting things on Facebook anymore -- I'm just disappointed in the response (or lack thereof) from my family and friends.


I feel a little better getting that out. Oh well, even if the whole world thinks I suck, I'm not going to stop. I write for me. If someone enjoys my writing along the way, hey, AWESOME. But I'm going to stop trying to be valid among my friends and family as a writer. (To the few who have put in an effort over the years, I am grateful, and hope you don't take offense ... mainly my mom, lol. She's always there for me.)
