Message from Writer

I am 17 and am an amateur writer for fun with a love of fiction. Although, if all the little people in my head could give me a hand every once and a while, that would be great. One problem I have though is when I create something I like, I try to turn it into a book. FYI, it's a bad idea/habit. Now, several unfinished books later, I am still going! Most of my pieces are short stories, so if you want to read them, it might take a little bit. I hope you like what you see, and if not, well... shit happens.

Disclaimer: I never said my writing was award worthy or anything, so read at your own risk peeps.

Red Dawn

FREE WRITING

    “Look,” her father said as he pointed towards the horizon. Above her, stars still glittered in an inky blue sky, mapping out the constellations she and her father had gotten up so early to look at. A cool breeze wandered over the grassy hill, causing the trees around them to whisper softly to one another. She peered at the horizon and the first rays of dawn beginning to unfurl from the sun’s brightly colored skirts. She stared at the sky...

When True History Speaks, It is Seldom Censored

FREE WRITING

    When true history speaks, it is seldom censored​. The boy had been to several museums in all of his six years, but every one of them had been the same. People jostled each other in order to get a better view of different dusty pieces of artwork or historical trinkets. His mother stood next to him, a familiar face in the sea of strangers. The soft conversations that carried on around him blended together into a constant buzz. He could...

The Broken Bandit

FREE WRITING

I watch from afar, the dancing of the wealthy. Their silks and bright colors, their clean faces and perfect well kept hair. I laugh softly, I am so unlike them. My long dark dirty hair, grimy face, and dirty fingernails to name a few. My black pants are covered in dust. My loose white shirt now stained rust red. A leather corset on the outside of my shirt to protect me when I fought other street rats. Open fingered leather...

Hunted

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2016

A young woman’s file is spread out on the desk. In all the photos she is in mid air, her dark hair in a tight bun and whearing a grey morph suit. There are sometimes other people in the photos, but they have been crossed out with a large red X. Her freedom seems to elate her. I close the file and see in bold letters TARGET #1. “Are their others,” I ask in my deep voice.”There were,” the other...

The Crimson Revenge

PROMPT: Historical Fiction Competition 2016

I am walking as silently as humanly possible, my heart beating like a drum inside my chest. I breathe deep calming breaths, hoping that my fear will not jeopardize the reason I am here in this dismal place. The air is cold and sharp in the December air, the night sky is cloudy and dark, and the cobbled streets of Whitechapel, England are quiet. Small snow piles decorate the sides of the icy streets that were cleared earlier today.
