Being a writer poses a unique challenge -- getting people to read your work. That's not to say being a musician, a visual artist, or any other kind of creator doesn't entail its own obstacles (obviously recording a song or creating a film require a lot more teamwork and resources, for example), but in catching the attention … Continue reading Where to Share Your Web Fiction

In case you missed it... I did also share a brief preview of my work in progress. You can find … Continue reading Input/Output
Alright, so things are really busy over here (hence the scarce updates). Secrets is almost done and I found out not long ago that I'm doing a book launch this weekend for Winter's Child. I've been busy preparing for a children's story time for that event and doing last minute Secrets edits so I apologize … Continue reading Weekly Update – 9/12/2016
First piece of news: I bought my domain name. That means you can find me at amynotdorft.com with no wordpress at the end. Yay! Otherwise, I received an interesting update the other day about a project and because of that I've been really busy these past few days making promo stuff (hence the late post). Thank you for … Continue reading Weekly Update – 28/11/2016
So first and foremost... yes. It is finished: If you click the above image it will take you to my latest horror story - just as requested. I would love to hear what people think of this one.

Yep... so that date up there is a bit of a lie. Today is actually Sunday, November 13th but technically it's an update for last week that should have come out yesterday and I'm a horrible person. Alright, so this week has been a disaster - sick kid and personal health problems - so I am admittedly … Continue reading Weekly Update – 12/11/2016
So the results of the poll are in and it looks like Horror is the winning genre. That means I'll have a brand new horror short story for you next week! I'm not sure about the exact day yet, but likely closer to the end of the week. I have been playing with a couple ideas … Continue reading Weekly Update – 4/11/2016

There were two awards to be won: The Reader's Choice award (determined by votes) and the Ambassador's Choice award (decided by the Wattpad Ambassadors heading the community).

This has been an exciting week for me! A month or two ago I submitted Secrets and Skin to Web Fiction Guide - "a community-run listing of online fiction." It was finally accepted on Monday and since then I have had a lot of new traffic. To all new readers - welcome! Thank you for checking out Secrets … Continue reading Weekly Update – 28/10/2016
I want you to imagine something for me: Your skin feels numb. It's hardly noticeable at first -- the shower doesn't feel too hot, you don't need a sweater when everyone else does. Then it starts getting worse. You can't really feel anything. There is pressure and some distant recognition of touch, but no real sensation. Why? You … Continue reading Imagine This.
