Yay! I’m writing things. On a blog. I guess that means I now understand technology? Sure. Anyhow, I’m Melion Traverse and I’m the writer whose blog you’re currently reading. If you haven’t noticed, I have no clue what an about page ought to contain. Should I write about me? Maybe, but I have it on good authority that I am boring (thanks, Mom!). Should I write about my writing? But that goes in the blog itself . . . I think. Should I write about things my border collie has eaten today? Actually, I don’t even want to think about that because she’s the reason I no longer have matching socks.

Ok, how about a fairy tale?

Once upon a time, there lived a Melion. The Melion lived with the Melion’s spouse, two dogs and an acceptable amount of chaos. The Melion noticed that a lot of strange things befell the Melion and the Melion’s spouse, so the Melion occasionally writes about the follies and foibles of being a Melion. There is no actual moral to this fairy tale and really, there isn’t much of a plot, either. In the end, it’s not a very good fairy tale. But it’s also not a very good about page, either, so at least the trend is continued.

Please, just read the blog. The writing is a lot better there and I promise I won’t write any more fairy tales.

If you’re curious about my fiction, I have a few short stories you can read for free. Please check them out at:

“On the Wings of Doves” in T. Gene Davis’s Speculative Blog

“Green Leaves and Cherry Blossoms” in  Scarlet Leaf Review

“Celestial Dreams in the Neverscape” in Flash Fiction Magazine

I also have other works forth coming in Deep Magic, Cast of WondersFantasy Scroll Magazine, Havok, and Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores. From time to time, when I’m not chronicling the awkward but amusing moments in my life, I also plan to post some flash fiction here on my blog – free for your perusal and enjoyment. In the meanwhile, I am also working on a YA fantasy novel.

Here’s hoping that you enjoy the blog. Feel free to contact me and let me know what you think.
