NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner
This was a hard novel to complete with the addition of a toddler, work and classes but it was a great feat! The best thing I could say is that I am proud I finished and before the 30th! Good luck to the rest of you and my best friend Ari!

Fall in New York City 2016

Story Excerpt: Pier

The waves crashed into the side of the docks. No one else was around a slight surprise in the city that never slept. Summer nights had the streets filled with the usual drunken individuals and late raves that resounded into the morning light. Yet this night was different, the city was calm and she wasn’t.

She rocked on her brand new ankle boots and took in a deep breath that quavered her core. Her now cherry cola curled hair thrashed in the wind and faintly smacked her face. It was a chilly night, but it could have been for the fact that she was standing at Pier 66 waiting for him. He texted her at eight saying they should talk and she took him up on the offer. They had broken up three months prior and they still had this odd concept to speak to one another. One chime of the phone led to long hours of emojis and inside jokes between the two.

She let out a slow shiver and walked along the pier to admire the skyline of New York City. The bright lights that glowed from tall cold skyscrapers twinkled across the black night. A wish is what she needed more than anything right now. Yet the fluorescent lights would not grant her deepest desire. The edge of the pier had backless benches scattered across. They longed for couples and tourist to sit upon them and glance at the picturesque skyline. The skyline that New Yorkers paid for to live in cramped spaces to drive one another into insanity.  That’s what did it for them.
