I first learned about Inktober last October, when I was browsing through my Instagram feed. What was this? Fantastic ink drawings? These people were seriously talented! I wanted to do that too!
Twenty minutes later, I crumpled my piece of paper and threw my pen with disgust. Nope. I was not an artist.
In January 2017, I started to bullet journal and, because no one was watching and there was no pressure, I began to draw again. Those early drawings were awful, but they improved. And now, this October, I realized I was ready to take on the #Inktober challenge. To my delight, I discovered that not only artists, but authors, had now joined the challenge! While artists penned an ink drawing according to the Inktober daily prompts, authors penned 50 word microfiction. The results from these authors are just as spectacular and talented as the results from the artists!
I write YA/adult fantasy & sci-fi that burns through the darkest realities with truth and redemption.
