Writing takes work. A lot of work. Some people, I think, believe that writing is as simple as thinking a thought and getting it down on paper. Well, that's a part of it. But making it coherent and appealing, at least in a short story or a novel, isn't as easy as writing a quick blog post.
Just wanted to put that out there.
Blood, sweat and tears, baby, and a whole lotta ink. (click on the image above for a larger photo)
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
