My name is Terry and I write!
For the past 5 years, I’ve been working on finishing my first fantasy novel, The Moon King. It started out as a short, stop motion animation film that spiralled out of control, turning into an enormous project that I simply couldn’t manage while in school. Since I didn’t want to lose the story I had conceived for the film, I started writing it down. Over the years, that story kept poking at me until I was forced to flush it out and eventually it grew into a full-fledged novel.
After one of my super good friends, Devon Van Duinen (who loves reading young adult books), encouraged me to take a writing class after reading my first draft, I enrolled in the University of Toronto’s Fantasy Writing Masterclass, taught by Fantasy Author Caitlin Sweet. From that class, I also joined an amazing critique group of aspiring authors, who helped me perfect my manuscript over the next two years.
On top of this, I’ve been writing (and sometimes selling) my short stories to establish myself as a professional writer.
I’d love to hear about your writing project, feel free to send me a quick email!
