Masked – Short Story

  Hello!

So we both forgot that the deadline for the OYAN novel contest was Wednesday. (oops.)  Anyways, we both edited like crazy and submitted our novels!  But all that editing left no time for writing short stories.  So this is a *little* late.  Next week, we should be back on track. 🙂

Also, thanks for all the nice comments on the last story.

I was challenged with the prompts above, and here’s the story.  I like this one a lot more, haha.

Sparklers at 3am – Short Story

 Hello to my ten readers of this blog.  I appreciate you.

This is the first installment of the Short Story Challenge.  You can read about that here if you missed that.

Wysteria challenged me to write a story with these three prompts:

I’m not too happy with the way the story turned out, but I’ll leave you to be the judge. Continue reading

Short Story Collab Thing (With Wysteria)

collab

(I’m brilliant with titles, aren’t I?)

As some of you may have noticed, there is a tiny little thing on my menu bar that says CWWC.  Loren from killjoy used to run this little competition, but she’s not this year.

Basically, she’d give us three to four prompts twice a week for us to write stories about.  These were pictures, quotes, and words.  It was a giant team competition and whoever wrote the most got the most points.

I’ve been rather uninspired lately (my muse decided to take an extended vacation), so long story short, I’m doing the same thing with Wysteria from headintheclouds to revive it.  (Hopefully.) Continue reading

Goodbyes (poem)

goodbye

I am not leaving, contrary to what it might look like from the title.  I just wanted to try my hand at some free verse poetry.  And I thought some art might go well with it. (I’ll let you be the judge of whether it does or not.)  

It’s a bit of a sad post, I suppose.  But goodbyes often are.

7777 Writing Tag

7777 tag

I actually just finished my first draft of Black Moon Academy a few weeks ago, and got it printed out on Monday to start editing in depth.  *celebration*  Soo, this tag was a fun tag to do.  Thank you R.M. Archer for tagging me. 🙂

Quick Summary: School for villains.  MC, Scarlet, is going to the school for her mom, but isn’t much of a villain.  Then the hero school and the villain school start clashing, and war is imminent.  Also *swords* *magic* *cloaks* *carrots*

Popular Books That I Did Not Like (Rant)

This was a fun post to write.

I’m a picky reader.  It’s very rare that I will love a book with all my heart and soul.  Most books I read are just “eh.”  And that’s okay, everyone has a few books that are just eh to them.  The trouble is when a book that is just eh to you, is glorious, amazing, fireworks-popping-out of the page, the emperor-comes-to-visit-you-himself-wonderful to the rest of the reading world.

No one understands, and they think you’re insane for not liking the greatest literary masterpiece since Beowulf.

It’s tough.

So, I’m going to rant about all the popular books that I did not like, in the hopes that someone else will be like me, or in the event that this is just hilarious to you that someone could hate these books.  (Nobody kill me.)

Also, I’ve tried to keep it spoiler free.  They may be *minor* spoilers, but nothing that would ruin the book.

Onward.

Writing Prompts

Back again with the writing prompts.  (I’ll never stop. There may not be any for a while, but eventually, they’ll come back when you least expect it.)

On my quest to come up with good story prompts, I ran across this story generator.  You just plug in numbers, nouns, adjectives, and names like MadLibs, and press “Write me a short story,” and poof, and there you have a story.  The link: plot-generator.org.uk/story/

There’s also this random story generator, where it fills the blanks with random words.  I highly recommend it for comedic purposes.

It can yield wonderful works of literary genius like this:

“Tommy gazed with the affection of 8708 callous blue badgers. He said, in hushed tones, “I love you and I want some more Facebook friends.”

Flora looked back, even more sneezy and still fingering the warped kettle. “Tommy, let’s get married,” she replied.

They looked at each other with stable feelings, like two dry, disgusted donkeys jumping at a very articulate dinner party, which had classical music playing in the background and two considerate uncles walking to the beat.”

I really couldn’t make that up, even if I tried.

I could make up these prompts, though they’re not quite as entertaining XD. Continue reading
