I haven't given you a story in some time and I need to recitify that. While I'm typing away on the next piece, I decided to share my ancient foray into telling a children's story. I always wanted some poor soul to illustrate this but never had the nerve to ask!
While the story is suitable for children, let's just say I am weird. I do not apologize for this.
To mix things up a little, I'm going to share chapter one of a novel I wrote ages ago. After polling a few friends, it was decided that, of my seven completed novels, this would be the first to go into an editing round (mostly bc it's a shorter novel and it's fun!) If all goes well, I hope to self-publish this story in mid-2019
Please note that this chapter is still unedited so I cannot 100% guarantee it will stay the same once we clean it up! Also, it's a fairly short chapter!
Told you I would eventually get out of the fairy tale type stories. Below is proof of my claim.
Big thank you to Missa for helping me decide between my two endings and to Jason for helping me decide on a proper title. (Also, I sent this story off for consideration. They declined. *shrugs* Your good luck then bc I can post it!)
I promised a new story and I delivered. Why have the last few stories been in the fairy tale and/or fantasy realm? *shrugs* No clue.
My writing tends to happen in themed waves. Wait a while and you'll probably get murders and monsters. Want a different kind of story? Send me a prompt!
I have conned Dream of Fire (Fairies and Finds) into creating another beautiful piece of art for me to create a story around! Her work is always amazing and I am honored to be able full reign in creating a story for it!
Special thanks to Barking Mad about Running (@BarkingMadRun) for giving me the corgi convention prompt and to Ari for telling me what to name a corgi.
While, yes I did use a name of someone I know personally, traits are made up. I just liked her name and needed one in a clutch.
My lofty dreams of being a famous & brilliant writer were literally smacked out of my head. Now I plan to fill the void with copious amounts of subpar writing!
