Hello all peoples,

Intros are very hard to write.

Have a flash fiction.

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

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*

My Latest Project (Black Moon Academy)

This title is going to become irrelevant in a few months but oh well.

I’ve been doing a thing call the One Year Adventure Novel–which I reviewed here a little while ago.  I didn’t talk about the story I’m using for it though.  I like reading other people’s story ideas.

BLACK MOON ACADEMY- ACADEMY FOR THE VILLAINOUSLY INCLINED

Sometimes the villain doesn’t want to be the villain.  In a world where students can go to schools to become heroes and villains, Scarlet finds herself destined to be a villain, like her mother and generations before her.  Only, Scarlet isn’t a villain.  Sometimes, the greatest motivator isn’t greed, lost love or power thirst.  Sometimes, the greatest motivator is the freedom to be good.  But war between the schools is imminent, and Scarlet has to make her choice between family and fate, and a school where she’s never belonged.

I Attempt a Rewrite

I found a notebook while cleaning my room recently.  (You find all sorts of things when you clean your room, don’t you?)  I was curious, and flipped the notebook open.  I started reading.  Then I remembered I wrote a story on a long car trip in that notebook when I was in fourth grade or somewhere around that age.  I got about a quarter a way through writing the story until I quit because it was basically a Magic Tree House book.  

I still regard it as my first major foray into writing, however.  (I don’t count the numerous fifteen sentence stories I wrote as a kindergartner.)

So, to see how far I’ve come, I decided to rewrite a portion of the story. Continue reading

Historical Writing Prompts

Adobe Spark (9)It’s been a while since we’ve had a round of writing prompts on here.  I decided to branch out and do historical prompts.  This place was getting bogged down with all the fantasy prompts.  

Now, I don’t write historical.  I tried to write a short story set in the Great Depression, but it turned into a miserable failure.  (Actually, my seven year old brother read it over my shoulder while I typed it, and I asked him for help.  The plot didn’t improve, so I’ll blame that story’s failure on him. But he liked the story.)

These historical fiction prompts are going to be something unique because–guess what– they all happened in history!  (I know, historical fiction normally is set in history, but hear me out.)  

These prompts were all in the newspaper and they caught my eye.  These are real life prompts, taken from headlines and articles in newspapers a long time ago.  Some are quite humorous, and I daresay you’ll like them whether you write historical or not. Continue reading

Writing Music Playlist

So, long time no see.  I’ve been drowning in school (end of year stuff) and haven’t had much time to make blog posts and such.  So, quick little post with a spotify playlist for ya!

And Happy Spring!  It’s either getting warmer or colder for you, depending on where you live.  Unfortunately for me, it’s getting warmer in the US, and I’m watch the trees turn yellow and fuzzy.  It’s time to break out the gas masks. 😦 Continue reading
