Inspired by a particular flock of birds I seem to always see.
So WOW, this is personal. MOM, DAD, GRANDMA, RELATIVES WHO READ THS BLOG- READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. I'M SERIOUS. I don't really know where it came from to be honest, I guess it's just something that's been on my mind lately. It's not fictional and it's written entirely from personal experience, so I'm not categorizing it as a short story. I guess it's some form of poetry? Free verse? I don't know. I just know it's personal and it could make some people cry, which is why I'M WARNING YOU MOM, DAD, ETC. AGAIN TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. Seriously.
I started this about two months ago. I had the idea and I knew I didn't want to let it get away from me, so I wrote the first few lines down just to have them, but the rest took a while for me to write. I don't consider this a short story just because of the format I wrote it in. I think it's more free-verse poetry, but I suck at poetry. Anyway I'm glad it's finally done and I'm satisfied with the finished product.
A vast change in tone from my last post. The title for this is taken from the Norwegian TV drama Skam, as the story is inspired by a dream I had about some characters from the show. The names and everything else are my own. This has been in my head for a while since I had the dream a couple weeks ago, and I felt like I needed to get it out. I put a trigger warning in the tags because it is a bit dark.
So I have this alter-ego. My friends know of her. Her name is Andromeda Pennyworth. She's the richest woman in the world. And this is her story.
This is an idea I came up with last night, kind of on the fly. I'm sure my inspiration came from something I saw or read once, but it's a short little piece about the Greek Olympian gods in a modern setting, what I think they would be doing if they were to be real people in a real city. I like how this one turned out and I'm kinda proud of it at the moment.
I started this like a month ago and I'm tired of trying to write it so I kind of just did whatever with the ending, but I liked the premise of it. If I didn't post it now it was never gonna get finished, so here it is.
This is the beginning of a much older project I started a few years ago, and reading back on it I was actually kind of laughing at myself because I can't take it seriously. I don't know if I have quite the touch for fantasy that I used to, or maybe it's just all been done before. But I only got about 20 pages into this one before I abandoned it, and it's been sitting in my docs untouched for years. I went back and edited a few things just for fun, and I figured I'd share this.
