I’ve got a new story in the works, up on Wattpad and on Tumblr called To Be A Hero.
I was challenged by a friend and fellow writeblr (@gingerly-writing) – a writer on tumblr to write a superhero story, something completely out of my comfort zone. I’ve only kind of started stepping into the whole superhero thing in general a couple months ago with No Capes on Wattpad and the release of Dr. Strange (My all time favorite male actor: Benedict Cumberbatch. Whoop!).
So, after about a week and a half (maybe even more) of hem-hawing I wrote the first chapter of a superhero story.
Warning this work is unedited.
It wasn’t the belly flop or exasperated cry that followed it that alerted me that something was wrong, although in hind’s sight according to Jeremiah I should’ve know that meant something was wrong.
It was by that window
where dreams came true,
where life was fought
and life was lost.
The cherry wood sill,
stained with blood and paint
worn by warm hands, pens,
and carved by relentless tears.
Based on a prompt set by @dialogue-prompts on tumblr:
“I know you’re not, you don’t have to-”
“I’m fine! Ok!? Can you just leave it please!?”
This has been posted on my website, writing blog and tumblr.
A lot has been going on for me lately; personally, academically, online and mentally.
Those of you who know me from Wattpad know that I posted a new short story collection on Wattpad, then took it down two days later. You may have also noticed that I also took down almost the rest of my stories leaving two still posted. You also realize that on March 1rst I was supposed to reveal the chapter of my NaNoWriMo novel: We Fall Down, it didn’t happened.
warning: this is work unedited.
Earth wasn’t anything like she expected. It was small, crowded, and so, so dirty. Trying to fit 7 billion people into an area smaller than her father’s kingdom, ridiculous. She exchanged a disgusted glance with her boyfriend, Adonis, as another one of the horrendously slow four wheeled vehicle humans were so proud of passed by them, spraying them with toxic levels of heavens-knows-what.
“I told you this was a bad idea, Adonis.”
A short story based on an angst prompt list by @writers-among-stars on tumblr :
1. “Please, just let me help you.”
2. “I don’t need you. I don’t need any of you!”
3. “I had to do it. Before I destroyed something else.”
9. “Stay with me okay? Stay awake!”
10. “Please- don’t leave me.”
13. “Everyone forgets about me. I’m used to it.”
