In the past few weeks, I have become hopelessly addicted to Figment. I have spent hours and hours writing, reading and swapping stories. Their prompts are fantastic and all of the members are really nice, so if you have a story or story ideas, I would really recommend getting an account there if you don't have one already.
Just yesterday I wrote a story for the prompt of somebody being tempted called The Sweetest Taste where a beggar girl in Victorian England is tempted to steal an apple. Mostly I was just playing around with descriptions. :)
A week ago, I wrote a story for the prompt of someone at war with themselves. It's called Maybe Tomorrow and you don't know what Callie is fighting until the end. There will be a second chapter and perhaps more after the contest ends, due to popular demand and the fact that I got an idea... :)
My story Forgive Me has made 62 people cry, which is kind of cool strictly from an author's point of view. I know, I'm mean. It has also made 106 people go wow, which just makes me happy.
Also, you can read a snippet of my novel, THE novel, that I am writing with the intention of publishing when it is done. I only have about 13,000 words at the moment, but it is growing every day. It is tentatively titled Blackbirds for the time being, but that may change.
A Normal Life, a short story I wrote last year, is going to become a novel with lots of editing, adjustment and expansion on the characters and storyline. As it is I am probably going to salvage a few scenes and scrap the rest.
There are also a few other bits and pieces from my imagination that I would really love feedback on, either on this post or on Figment, but those five are the most important.. So please stop by, say hello and read my stories!
