Don’t Risk the Mind-Wipe (Short Story)

This is a sequel to The Hunters and the Hunted. It is from a different perspective than the first part. It’s also based on a prompt, which is the first two sentences. “That is a terrible, horrible, incredible, foolish idea. Let’s do it and see what happens,” Lail proclaimed. “You’re not serious, are you?” Alwin … Continue reading “Don’t Risk the Mind-Wipe (Short Story)”

The Hunters and the Hunted (Short Story)

This was based on a prompt, which is the first two sentences. “Should we let him know we’re on to him?” “Now where’s the fun in that? The enjoyment is in the chase and capture, not the fear!” Whispering voices are audible from my place deep in the alley. I hang in the darkness, watching, … Continue reading “The Hunters and the Hunted (Short Story)”

Do I Know You? (Short Story)

This was written quite a while back. It was based on a prompt. If I can find it I will add it to the end of the post so as not to spoil the story. “He’s stirring! Oh, thank goodness!” Azlyn opened his emerald eyes sluggishly. The blurred image before him refused to focus, colored … Continue reading “Do I Know You? (Short Story)”

Befriending Vinny (Short Story P2)

Be sure to read part one! This is a backstory piece I wrote for Mystical Warriors. The main characters, Mara, James, Vinny, and Drake, are probably about seven. This takes place after “Thief!” It was almost time for the Kitumas to come over. The Williamsons had finished making their food, and James’ family had come … Continue reading “Befriending Vinny (Short Story P2)”

Befriending Vinny (Short Story P1)

This is a backstory piece I wrote for Mystical Warriors. The main characters, Mara, James, Vinny, and Drake, are probably about seven. This takes place after “Thief!” This is rather long for a single blog post, so the second half will be out tomorrow. It was a bright, sunny day in Connilville when a moving … Continue reading “Befriending Vinny (Short Story P1)”

Thief! (A Short Story)

This is a relatively unimportant, though fun, bit of backstory for two of the characters from my novel-in-progress. It was initially based off a prompt, but I do not recall what it was. ~~~~~~ Mara, five at the time, was at her neighbor and best friend James’ house. Well, as she would be quick to … Continue reading “Thief! (A Short Story)”

The Mingling of Inspiration and Goals

This whole blog has a lot of unplanned content written when I sat down to write. I’ll readily acknowledge that this is one of them. But I had some great ideas while driving home, and that inspiration led to the idea for this post. Earlier this month, I wrote about how I experience inspiration. This … Continue reading “The Mingling of Inspiration and Goals”

The Apocalypse of Irqulnirn

I am currently writing a short story that may become a novelette set on Irqulnirn after an apocalypse. It actually inspired the creation of quarzyls. This is the historical background for the piece. Some of the details are incomplete at this time and require more worldbuilding. Irqulnirn is dependent upon quarzyls’ life-giving and creating abilities, … Continue reading “The Apocalypse of Irqulnirn”
