Given the theme “antiquity” I wrote this short story about bravery in Ancient Rome, even if you’re not fully grown up yet.
Wrote something interesting enough to share today, something nice and optimistic!
It almost felt like something that could be expanded into something longer, but I do feel like short stories is a good thing for me to focus on right now.
Woo, my creative juices are flowing a bit more freely now and this came out today: a fantasy story with a little twist to it.
A short little piece of writing, barely 500 words, which is almost borderline poetry.
This came from…somewhere. Just a short little thing that showed up among my morning pages that I edited to a little more than two pages in length. (Honestly, I think some of these short stories are just distractions my brain throws at me so I don’t have to go off and finish some of my larger writing projects. :P)
This started our dark and bleak before it took a turn for the better at the end. It ended up a cute story appropriate for Caturday.
Okay, so it’s a long essay of a rambly, highly personal Montaigne variety, but I think it still fulfills the criteria of personal and artful (there are some artful bits to it, particularly the end).
But yeah, fairly personal for me, relying heavily on my own experiences and how I learned from them, which is like an essay too I suppose.
Channeling my own feelings about an upcoming move into fiction. It so happens I had an appropriate event from my novel (saga?) to write out.
I am not entirely sure where this came from, but it’s a concept I toyed some with in the past and it’s apparently been cooking in my head since then. And this is what came out. (To be continued?)
As a disclaimer, I might be channeling some Targaryen siblings. 😛
Today’s short story offering is like my own version of American Gods, in that it is a short tale about old gods coping in a modern world. I focus on just one pantheon though, the one I’m the most familiar with (though for funsies, I won’t give it away here).
