She is Known

She is Known

This is my final (for now) attempt at a describe your character twice (once to fall in love and once to be repelled). I went back to writing from a different character’s perspective because I thought it worked better. I actually think this might be the weakest of the three (odd since you’d think I’d …

Who Should I Be Today?

Who Should I Be Today?

This is something of a call-back to the first prompt I ever wrote (which starts with the same line). I thought it would make an interesting juxtaposition since Cazella and Silkfoot achieve basically the same thing via two drastically different methods.

Letters from Liara

I’ve done a pretty good job introducing the characters who inhabit the settings I write about most often. But I seem to have overlooked one of the main characters in my Modern Fantasy setting. I’ve talked about Domerin, Rose and Silkfoot, even Cazella. But I somehow neglected to mention Lilianna; aka Phage or, as she’s …

A Reverse Fairy Tale

A Reverse Fairy Tale

Over on Tumblr I participate in the #writeblr community. Some have started posting spontaneous prompts and so far I’ve really enjoyed answering them. So much so that I wanted to share my responses here. These are written off the cuff, without any planning. Today’s prompt was a reverse fairy tale. . . . Rose had …
