Creative Writing: Illusory Waters

Afternoon everyone.

I thought I would let you all know that I have now added another Creative Writing piece to my sparkly new Creative Writing page. This new entry is a short story of mine, which was previously called The Metaphorical Truth, now called Illusory Waters.
I changed the name simply because Illusory Waters is much more appropriate, and I think it sounds much better!

If you have a spare five minutes, then please, have a read of my new short story Illusory Waters.

Six word story on Twitter

‘In six words or fewer, write a story about someone you see everyday but never speak to. #amwriting #sixwordstory’

So here’s my story – ‘@WriterlyTweets she gleams amongst the swarm #sixwordstory #amwriting #shortstory’

You give it a go! 

It’s been a while but I’ve given ‘Flash! Friday’ a go!

For this weeks Flash! Friday Fiction the aim was to base your story on any two of their four given story elements, I decided to go for conflict – man v nature and setting – an island. The aim is also to keep the word count between 75-125 words.
So below is what I wrote, my short story The Awakening.

The Awakening (111 words)

Awakening from a forced sleep I feel a cooling breeze and an itchy sensation on my face.
Listening to the distant breaking waves I imagine a perfectly shaped glowing pellet. It closes in and expands into a burning planet above me. Spotting the curling flames descend from the orb I watch on as they slither across night sky, generating a portal to the inside of a volcano. The peaceful and unaffected sea water lights up and reflects the fierce and tender bloodshot sky. I feel escalating footsteps numbly thudding around me, and then I remember.

Opening my eyes I stare across the deserted sandy island. They said this day was coming.

A Miniature Story of mine 

I’ve recently been strongly affected by something that I found out, and so I thought I would write a miniature story about it. The challenge is not to write more than 140 characters, which is a great challenge. See if you can figure out what the story is about. 

‘I’m forced to come out just twice a day, made to perform and play. 5 minutes gone, off I go, back to my lonesome cave.’

Another Miniature Story By Me

Well what can I say? I quite enjoy writing a 140 character story. So here’s my second which was published onto Miniature Story – 140story’s Facebook and Twitter pages at: http://www.facebook.com/miniaturestories

“I’m fascinated by birds. I follow them everywhere, on the streets, in the woods, and in their homes. It’s best at night when they’re alone.”

Any thoughts on this one?

Miniature Stories – 140 Story

I submitted a 140 character story to Miniature Stories/140story today. To my surprise mine was selected and published onto their site.

140 story jan

“Living a new life unnoticed, journeying undetected. Without a sound, without a voice, without a touch, watch over your loved ones.”

What do you think my story is about?

Do check out their site and have a go yourself. It’s a fun challenge. Visit 140 story at http://www.miniaturestory.org/
