Pokemon: First Steps

Kess sat on the hill overlooking Pallet Town. The sun was rising, with just enough wind to make the trees rustle. It would be fall soon, the lush green turning countless colors before being stripped of the trees, scattered across the landscape as dark…

Monstrous Inspirations

The Mute of Abr takes place in the city of Abr, far away from Lake G’desh, where Drowning the Sands of G’desh takes place. Where religion is everything at the lake, in Abr they are animistic, praying to the sand, mountains, and salt. The salt, the…

Grimm Chronicles: Vol I and II

Christine Haggerty captivated me a few years ago with her blog. Through that we actually became friends, creating a small writer’s cult. Or circle. I mean really cult or circle all depends on what you do with the candles. Then I was awed by…

Morality of War

Charles spat, sitting on the rock in the middle of the battlefield. The fight was finished, they won or so people said, and Charles was just too tired to tend to the corpses and soon to be corpses. The youths could do that, along…

Hand Holding

“Take my hand,” I said, louder than I thought I had, until I saw all the people looking. I reached up for her hand, “Hold my hand, please.” I kept my tone in check, maybe. She looked down at me, smiling, bright blue eyes…

Cory

When I saw him, looking at the stars, I could have sworn there was a twinkle denoting tears. When he heard me approach, his gaze coming down from the heavens upon me, his quirky smile, with the right lip curling up, appeared instantly. He…

Once upon a time on little Mercury

Changing how I write these. First, pretending I created a male. Second, first person. Third, this is how I’ll continue in the future. Once upon a time there was a planet called Mercury. It was the closest planet to the sun, the smallest planet…

Eevee’s Defiance

“Know what you want to become, Trick?” I scratched my eevee behind the ear and he purred and moved into my chest. He was small, just big enough to cover my upper torso. He ignored my question, as he often did. We were nearing…

Learning to read Writer’s Market

I’ve started looking through the 2014 Writer’s Market book for short stories and novels. It’s been fascinating. And a warning, this is very stream of consciousness. I’m sorry. After last year, I learned a lot. If it says “We accept all nonfiction, fiction, and…

Cords

Have stories that speak to you? Was taking a late night shower to clear my mind, and this just started writing itself, every moment in the shower adding to the detail. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a story write itself this literally….

Bloody

“You’re bleeding.” Craig nearly laughed from the absurdity. Instead he tried his best to pick himself up, focusing on his footing as a child taking first steps. His left arm burned, though it was numbing. Shock was setting in, he thought. The muscle had…

Meeting new people is the same as meeting new characters

Aside: Kelst and Ayne was searched on Google! One of the hits I received was from that. Epic. Those two crazy kids are gaining some traction. Writers are generally a more insular group. Introverts gain their energy with alone time, or only hanging out…

Anglorum

"Before the sea she stood, still as a statue but for the wind rippling in her loose lavender-grey dress and toying with her black hair - it billowed in the salty breath of the ocean like a flag of defiance."
