A Godling’s Guide to Leading a Rebellion

This is this week's assignment for my Creative Writing class. We had to write our story in an experimental form (how-to guide, Amazon review, Tweets, text messages, etc.), basically any non-typical format. I wrote mine in the form of a blog post. Since I'm currently re-reading Percy Jackson, I'm in the gods/mythology mindset, so this is about the daughter of a sea god giving advice to another fellow godling.

Secret Places

Two posts today since I haven't posted over the last three days. I'm tagging this as Misc because I'm not sure if I consider it a story - it's nonfiction, and it's about something from my childhood growing up in New Jersey. Exaggerated with pretty language for aesthetic purposes, but still true. Sort of metaphorical, I guess. Let me know what you think!

Playing with form

This was a little journal I did for a class a year ago. The assignment was to write it in three different forms, which we had to choose from a book. I ended up liking the story I wrote, but I don't know if I would consider it a real story since I don't have a title, so I'm tagging it as Miscellaneous. Playing around with the form for this one was a fun experiment.

Riley

I wrote the first draft of this story in high school, and to this day it's still one of my favorite things I've ever written. It's been through edits and changes since then, and this is the most recent draft. A little bit NSFW (sex, explicit language, all that fun stuff) so proceed with caution. Comments on this one are encouraged! I'd love to know what people think.

On Thin Ice

This was the final project for my Creative Writing class two semesters ago. I struggled with it a little, because the professor didn't want us to write anything supernatural, and that's usually all I write. But this was a nice experiment for me in realistic YA fiction. It's a little on the longer side (the Word doc clocks in at 22 pages) but I've gotten decent reviews on it. It's about a bisexual girl who's in love with her championship ice skater best friend.

Ἴκαρος (Icarus), or The Inherent Danger in Wanting Too Much

I wrote this story as a final creative project for a Greek and Roman Mythology class I took a few semesters ago. I've always been in love with mythology (thanks, Percy Jackson) and Icarus is one of my favorite myths, so this is my interpretation of it. I've also been toying with the idea of writing another Icarus story, based on the idea of Icarus and Apollo as lovers. This is a bit of a longer story, but I hope you like it!

Sneak Peek: Tidelands

The prologue to a longer short story I've been working on called Tidelands. It's my own re-telling of The Little Mermaid (of course. Because those of you who know me know I love The Little Mermaid.) Eventually I might post more of this story if people are interested.
