Short Story

I've created this blog to be a space for me to dump any and all possible ideas I may have for short stories, poems/prose, chaptered/longer stories, essays-basically anything I may want to write.

The best-case scenario for me is that I have a place to get feedback on ideas for writing, so I would be so extremely grateful if you guys could help me out by just following along and letting me know what you would like to see/read and what you wouldn't read.

I intend for this to be very casual and laid-back, and very preliminary to all of my writing, so please please please don't be afraid to offer criticism or tell me that an idea sucks. I'm looking for any and all feedback you may have.

Thanks so much!

I saw down next to her and smiled, and she beamed,

Upon asking what was in the book, she said,

“It’s just thoughts...people."

“I'm afraid I may forget about them."

This is a short, single chaptered story about a young girl's life throughout an abusive relationship. It focuses less on the abuse, and more about how it all began and the results of what happened to her. (Side note, I have only roughly created and edited this, so it's likely that things will change in the future.)

It's an elaborate and taboo practice, buying favors from witches. When Magdalene, who does not want any children, offers her first born to a witch in return for her present family's health, she must find a way to have a baby. However, things may get complicated when her child's father has made a deal with a different witch, creating a stand-off battle for the child. What really adds to the glamour of the situation, piling up int he back of her mind, is that Magdalene begins to doubt whether she wants to relinquish her child at all.

This poem is to the other loved-ones, from someone who has spent a lot of time in the hospital over the course of the last few months, and who has experienced enough loss, to forget what I once had.

The loved-ones who have loved and lost, who have toiled and won, who have guided and guilted, who have done all that they could and all within their power, whether or not it was enough.

Kidnapped at age 11, kept out of reach from the world for 14 years, Ruth finds herself completely broken and confused upon her liberation from captivity. Her previous optimism and curiosity is lost as she realizes that the real world has no room for that kind of naivete. She closes herself off, and becomes more irritable and introverted over time, and less sensitive. Ruth is determined to never let anyone hurt her again, even if that means hurting those around her. What started as the lifetime of a young girl with a smile that brought joy to the broken ends with a chaotic shell of what used to be a beautiful person. As the old cliche goes, you either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Tragedy

This is an old poem I looked at and revised. It's pretty much just me criticising how people only care about a person once they're gone. It's me criticising how people will take advantage of a tragedy to make sure that they raise their own social status and how people view them. It makes me sick how people are only willing to care once it is impossible for their caring to actually need to be genuine or helpful in any way.

You think that you've been used up and it's all over for you. Just remember that you're someone's reason to wake up in the morning. You're someone's home, and losing your home sucks.(Trigger warnings for self-harm, mentions of suicide, and bullying.)

The lingering voices in her head wont let her block out the memories anymore, as she slowly unravels that fateful day that binds her mind. She struggles to be heard as she begins to come to terms with the fact that her father could not, would not, and did notkill himself. As this fact lifts a weight off of her shoulders, it also poses a dangerous question. If Chris' father did not kill himself, then who, or what,did?
