and Other Writing Thoughts

External Services:
I'm a writer, primarily focused on science fiction and fantasy, but I try my hand at any story that comes to me. This blog is where I talk about my writing process both in general and on specific pieces. I am trying to sort everything by tags so if you're interested in a specific project, you can click the tag and see all related posts. The writing posts are more general and often refer to a larger collection of works.

I publish under Margaret McGaffey Fisk and Margaret McGaffey.

Curve of Her Claw, a dark fantasy short story, appears in Cloaked in Shadow: Dark Tales of Elves, http://anthologies.fantasistent.com/

From the Ashes, a SF short story, appears in Triangulation 2004: A Confluence of Speculative Fiction, http://www.parsec-sff.org/publishing.html, (and won 2nd place in the 2004 PARSEC contest)

Unique Worlds, an urban fantasy short story, appeared in the Confluence 2007 program book
