    I write shots stories (no, I’m not published, unless posting here, on tumblr, watt pad, & literotica count) although I probably will never write as well as Hemingway or Joyce Carol Oates. But I always aim to create living people…a bad guy you wanna hate, a love interest whose sexy mouth you can taste, etc.
