Author has written 7 stories for Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Mythology, and Essay.

Formally Harmonic Discord.

The stories posted prior to 2010 are of historical interest at this point. Sometime in the near future, I will be taking down most of these stories, including The Sylvian Outlaws. I am so, SO grateful for all your reviews and support, and I am deeply sorry for not being able to finish it in its current iteration. Unfortunately, TSO was started at a point in my life when I had no idea what I was doing when it came to story pacing, and I think it is a better use of my time to work on my current projects, which are better planned and (in my opinion) more cohesive.

Speaking of said projects...

I am still writing longer fiction!

I participated in NaNoWriMo in Fall of 2015 and Camp NaNoWriMo April of this year. I've finished one 80,000-word story, tentatively titled "The Rest is Riddles" and another story whose ending I still have to draft, called "Black Mirror, White Mirror." (You may recognize character names from the latter story, although the plot will be essentially unrecognizable). Both are fantasy novels similar in genre to TSO.

In addition, a shorter work of mine has been published! It is called Blue, and it was published in Syntax and Salt last year. You can check it out here, if you feel so inclined:

I also have a Twitter, which I've mostly use for word sprints (@NaNoWordSprints is the best!), but feel free to message me: https://twitter.com/cmf_wright

I will likely continue to post short stories and possibly even longer works on here, so stay tuned!
