Books. We love reading them. Some of us love writing them. I'm one of those people. I've had a voracious appetite for reading ever since I was young. A few years back, I started writing stories of my own.

This page is dedicated to the stories and books I've either written or am currently writing. They're available in various formats for everyone to enjoy.

I hope these stories move and inspire you. Maybe even make your day brighter. Feel free to send me your feedback about them here. For now, I leave you to your reading pleasure.

How To WIN at NaNoWriMo (Eric Beaty)

How to WIN at NaNoWriMo

In 2009, I set out to finally achieve my goal of writing a novel. The premise behind National Novel Writing Month, founded in 1999 by Chris Baty, is to write 50,000 words by the end of the designated month, which is always November. Here is my story.

Note: After entering and winning NaNoWriMo 2015, I've continued updating this story to include what I've learned as a result.​

Down at the Old Folks Club cover

Down at the Old Folks Club

This short story records my observations regarding Old Folks Clubs (OFCs) in general, how you can tell if you're in the presence of a genuine OFC, various types of OFCs, and even if you qualify for "membership" in your local chapter of the OFC.

Confessions of a (Self-Professed) Writing Failure

"Confessions of a (Self-Professed) Writing Failure" is designed to be a collection of musings I've deemed unworthy of posting as content on my blog, but that still matter to me as a writer. These can be anything from entries from one of my many journals to ramblings straight to Wattpad. Every now and then I know writers get frustrated and feel like failures—at least, I hope I'm not alone.

Kitty Hero Chronicles

(NaNoWriMo 2015 Winning Novel!)

​(Status: Currently Awaiting Edits)

"Feelings" (working title) is the novel I talk about in the above story "How to WIN at NaNoWriMo." It involves an amateur private eye (a "Feeler") who has the ability to sense the emotions of others (aka Feelings). I've been on track to finishing it since the Fall of 2014. It's becoming an exciting journey, and I can't wait to share it with you all.
