I started writing short stories when I was very young. They were vastly different than what you’ll find on this site. I remember I had a series going about a character called “Knight Rider” no affiliation with the talking car. It was this guy who was basically Batman, who rode a motorcycle, like Batman sometimes does. I ended up coming up with the idea that there was a team of them, and they each had different coloured suits. Like the Power Rangers. Those stories never amounted to much and were my only real foray into anything hero related.
I had another series that I had titled Venom. It was about a chosen one who had to fight dragons, he had a sword etc. Etc. I don’t think I have these note books anymore although I do somewhat wish I did. It would be equal parts interesting and hilarious to read these old stories from the glory days of elementary school. What I do have however, is note books from the last five years. I spent my night tonight transcribing two short stories from paper to keyboard and then have posted them on here. The first one I posted is called “Siren Song” it is a very short little tale I had come up with that is very inspired by post-apocalyptic style films. I would like to do something more with it in the future, and probably change the title. Until then, I hope you find it enjoyable! It’s cover looks like this;
It occurred to me tonight that I have now posted 8 short stories in total and haven’t updated my page which is supposed to have info about each story. That will need to happen. The second story I put up tonight is called “Such Great Heights” If that sounds familiar to you it’s because that is a song by the band The Postal Service. I really love the song and it’s many incarnations as covers and was inspired to write a story based off of it. I hope you enjoy it, it might come off a touch bit repetitive but I really wanted it to feel organic and genuine. I also wrote it about 2 some odd years ago. I like to think in that time my style/talent has improved. If you need an example then read “Working Title” my most recently written story.
I also had the delight today of starting another story, one that I am very passionate about and can’t wait to share with you. It won’t be a full novel but it will be longer than a short story.
I want to also take another second to thank you for your continued support. I appreciate every like, every follow and every comment. I hope to share as much of my writing as I can with as many people as I can and I just hope that it’s something you all find interesting, relatable or even just amusing. Anything at all works for me, it’s why I bother putting it out here at all. Because if I’m being honest, whether it garners any attention at all, it’s something I’ll always do. I have an obsession with it. I’ll go without it for a while, and realize I need it. Then I’ll have it again, and it’ll drive me crazy. It’s been as of yet the longest ‘will they, won’t they’ of my life. I think I’m ready to settle down with it.
Why fight something you love?
Also, here’s the artwork for that second story I posted.
