InfluencesToo many to mention - poets, writers, artists, and humanity generally.
BioI am studying Literature & Writing at ECU in Western Australia. I love the sea and often gaze out to the edge of the Indian Ocean, which feels much like the never-ending desert landscapes of my childhood. My reason for doing this degree was to understand the how and why of good literature, because I love reading, and while it was never my intention to write, the curriculum has piqued my interest. I like writing very short stories. In our fast-paced world, where time for reading often alludes us, micro-fiction may appeal to many. 'Let Your Word Fly' prompted this micro-story, inspired by a childhood memory of love and loss.
