Welcome to Travis Manley's Writers Blog.

I currently make my living as a photographer, but have always had an interest in writing. I am currently working on a few projects (short fiction) and thought it would be fun to share my thoughts and experiences as I attempt to get my work published.

New Short Story

Bookmark and Share
I just completed the first draft on a new horror short story called Click You're Dead about a photographer who has a streak of bad luck and people around him start dying.

I'm looking forward to getting started on the second draft and fleshing it out a bit.

Great site for writers

Just found this great website for writers called Writing Excuses. The podcasts covers a lot of subjects new writers like myself need to hear.

Writing Excuses is hosted by writers Brandon Sanderson, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells.

Submitted My first Short Story!

Bookmark and Share
Big news!

I finished my first short story Closed for the Season and submitted to be published. I don't want to give too much info away at this point. All I can say is Closed for the Season is a suspense story about a camping trip gone wrong.

I will post more info when I can.

Cross you fingers (and hairy-toes) for me.
