This Is Harder For Me Than It Is For You

Welcome! I’m glad you found me. My name is Danielle and I’m a writer.

I saw that eye-rolling and heard that pfft! sound you just made out of the corner of your mouth. But before you go clicking out of here on your search to find a “real” writer, check out some of my stuff. Sometimes I don’t suck. Often, I write something pretty awesome.

Did I mention my work can get steamy? Oh, yeah, it does. A lot. Not so much that I’d consider it erotica, but enough that I probably won’t be sending it to my grandmother for Christmas.

Starting this blog is a big step for me, so if you’re still reading, I appreciate your loyalty. Yes, I’m that easy to please. While I’ve entered a number of writing contests, I’ve done so in a completely anonymous way that leaves no room to hear any opinions on it, which is all the more reason I need a forum like this.

I might be the writer, but you, dear reader, are my teacher. Your feedback matters, which is why no matter how much I’d like to continue writing in secret, it’s time I let you see what I’ve got so I can do what I love even better.

Check out the flash fiction page (updated monthly) and stay tuned for short stories, novellas, and caffiene-fueled rants on how I’ll never finish writing/celebrating/editing/crying over/wiping my ass with the current WiP.

    Hey DH —

    You have hereby been checked out by Moi. I especially liked your blog on Voice and on the selection of your pseudonym. I am working on the completion of my first wip, so I’m fantasizing about being published and wondering what name to use. I thought of the grandmother thing, too. At this point I am still wandering about nameless. I thought of using my maiden name, but for some reason I feel squeamish about all those people who might pick up my book and say “This has got to be the Alida Estevez I went to school with. Always knew she was a flake…” They point and laugh and don’t buy my book….

    Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean someone’s not following me. 😉

    • Hi Alida! Yes, choosing a pseudonym is a big deal, and it has to be something you’re willing to be saddled with for the long haul. Putting yourself out there for everyone to see is definitely scary, too. I promised myself I’d be published before I was 30, and guess what’s coming up in just about a year? Time to suck it up and do it!

      Good luck to you,
