AWWW <3 Thanks Sabrina! I’ll take good care of your feels. I need to write more, I have so few recent posts…
Velvet Blory IS a Tumblr, haha c: I don’t follow many Tumblrs that aren’t my friends, and it’s kind of weird to pick and choose between friends, so… I’ll leave it at that. :P Sorry!
Velvet Blory (velvetblory.co.uk)! In their own words: “A ‘pseudo-literary’ blog that promotes/publishes excellent writing as a ‘Blory.’” Awesome stories, poems, etc. all concentrated in one place - it’s fantastic. (:
it’s weird how when women who work as prostitutes are murdered, the media refers to them as prostitutes rather than people. like, it’s never “man kills two women”, it’s “man kills two prostitutes”. you’d never see “man kills two lawyers” or something.
it’s like in their eyes being a sex worker takes away your right to being human
AN (Author’s Note): Hello again! Back with something I like much more than “Sunsets”… I think. First, some background information:
Writer’s Craft requires a summative project, and mine is to be a short story anthology. I was originally going to do my own take on romantic tropes (six in total), but I’ve since progressed to my own take on fairy tales. Unique, aren’t I.
Nonetheless, I love/hate fairy tales - the lessons they teach are, frankly, appalling, but they’re so interesting, and a joy to retell or rewrite.
So, anyways. This is the first completed short story I’ve written for this summative, and as it’s difficult to get a proper opinion out of people who know how I think, I’d like yours, Tumblr inhabitants. See if you can figure out which fairy tale it is, and tell me what you think of my attempt. :) Also, considering that this idea was prompted by, literally, taking a shower, that’s what I’ll title this post… for now.
Reviews extremely appreciated for this story in particular - thanks in advance! xox
I saw a few of these floating around, and I absolutely love this idea. I live in a huge city, so for everyone who reblogs this by January 12, 2013, I will write your URL on a slip of paper and tape it somewhere in public! Then I’ll take a photo of where I put it, post it, and tag it with your URL.
This is 100% serious business. I am a 100% serious blogger (but not really)
AN (Author’s Note): I asked my friend (his name is Stanley) what he thought of when he thought of sunsets. His answer:
“Sunsets are a pretty effect due of the scattering of light wavelengths.
Sunset always feels like the short time until the end of the world.
You can’t stop it, you just enjoy what’s left of the day calmly.”
…and I decided to write something based off of it. Even if ‘of’ should have been ‘to.’ Not my best work, sadly, but this story was just not working out. Sigh.
Thoughts and opinions welcome, as always. HAPPY NEW YEAR’S! xo
If you reblog this before May 16 2013, I will write your URL down and stick it in a jar or whatever. Over the summer I will take the jar of URL’s and I will scatter them around. They may get taped to public loos, they may be thrown into crowds at festivals, or they may get put under napkins at restaurants.
Some one may find your URL, and who knows, they could message you telling you where they found it.
You have until May 16 to reblog.
That’s up to you to decide ;)
Really though, the story kind of wrote itself- it’s completely dependent on your interpretation. What do you think?
Are you referring to the flowers at the beginning or ending of the story?
I’ll double-check, but it appeared to be Comic Sans…
Very nice, I really like it! One problem - why Comic Sans? D:
(It’s a Cyber thing.)
Definitely nice, though. c:
Fair enough - how’s finding the perfect theme coming along? :P
Hey, anyone who looks at my Tumblr- follow this kid! His writing is awesome (I can attest to that- I’ve edited most of it!) :P
Thank you! I’m so happy you liked it :) LOL, an autograph? If I know you, sure, though I don’t think I’m anywhere near that level of proficiency/fame yet O:
Thank you (: Haha good - that means I’ve done my job well! ;D
Thank you so much! :D LOL, Jasmine works- unfortunately, as you’ve sent this under ‘Anonymous’, I won’t be able to see the completed story/your blog… Send me the story or the link once you’ve written it? c:
