Hello there! I’m Richard Child, a new writer trying to finish my first short story.

Wait a minute, Richard who?

After moving to Düsseldorf, I decided to join a creative writing meetup group. Aside from making some great friends, one of the writing prompts gave me an idea for a short story.

One of the challenges I face is actually taking the time to finish a project. By publicly sharing my progress, I’m hoping it will help keep me accountable. I’ll also be sharing writing prompts with my mailing list, with the hope that it will help you get started writing. There's no previous experience required (I'm new at this too).

Currently, I’m working at trivago as a designer. I finished my first half marathon well under 2 hours, with a time of 1:59:59.
