Some… me time? In writing form.
I believe Talk Like a Pirate Day was recently, so…
A sign I want to hold up when I am reading in public/around other people.
A little something on a beloved genre.
What the title says, what I truly want at the end of a good story.
I went on a day trip to a historic site today and came back with the embryo of this story in my head. Here I present to you a story of a girl and a prince, a ghost story, but not a traditional one at all.
So I started on something that looks like it could be a long one. A longer short story or maybe a novella. Perhaps more, though I don’t want to jinx myself.
It’s been a while since I had an idea for fiction longer than 2500 words, so posting this here for posterity and your enjoyment.
This started with a sentence and grew from that.
Simple, short and self contained for once. Proceed with caution, for here there be dragons:
Well, this was an odd one. I suppose it is a sequel of sorts as one of the characters is the same vampire that was the POV in my vampire story from yesterday.
Here I paired him up with some other otherworldly and supernatural creatures, like…a modern monster support group? I had a lot of fun with the dialogue and the characters. (I must note that the Trickster god in this is only partially based on that infamous version from those superhero movies…)
Might be more with these characters sometime, mostly cause I want to play with them some more.
A silly thing and my own take on the modern vampire story, from the POV of the very creature it is about.
(The ending came a little out of left field, but I like it.)
