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. (:
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
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.
"make a wish and i'll throw it all away" was aspiring/ inspiring! you know what? why dont i write my own short story and put you in as a character?but since im to scared to put in ur name how does Jasmine sound? :)
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:
AN (Author’s Note): I keep writing drabbles (yay Writer’s Craft!), and, well, this definitely-atypical story (really, a series of interconnected drabbles, if I’m being honest) was written over the course of a week in mid-November. I keep wanting to show it to people, but they tend to be disturbed - if they can read my writing, that is. For the aforementioned reasons, it’s unedited, except by me.
With that in mind, I’d really appreciate an opinion or three on this piece! Thanks in advance, Tumblr :) xox
This is another story from Writer’s Craft. I’d have posted earlier, but the fact that my teacher marks things on Turnitin delayed me somewhat - it would be a little unfortunate if my story returned “100% plagiarized”, no?
I wrote this one off of a random prompt I found through Tumblr - “She killed her son.” We had no restrictions for this assignment, and I’m actually not that great at starting stories on my own. I had to use a prompt in order to get writing. Another self-imposed restriction was to try out a completely different genre (horror) and new subject matter (zombies), as well as a bit of variation in my style. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out - hope you like it! Constructive criticism/reviews are, as always, appreciated.
AN (Author’s Note): My sincere apologies for the long hiatus!
This semester in high school, I have Writer’s Craft. And it’s actually driving me to the very edges of my creativity. This is the second writing activity we’ve done so far, called a ‘jumble story’; we had to pick a character description, setting, time, and situation/challenge from a list (10 choices of each), and then, of course, write a story. I picked ‘a recent high school graduate’, ‘an expensive restaurant’, ‘after a proposal’, and ‘something embarassing has just happened’/’an important decision needs to be made’.
Constructive criticism/reviews/opinions appreciated, as always! xox
Hello, anyone looking at this blog, and welcome to thefictionaddiction!
My name is Yasmin Emery. I’m a high school student, I love writing short stories, and writing is something that I want to do as a career in future. However, the only sources of criticism are my classmates, friends, and teachers, and I want the opinions of a broader audience; hence, I turned to Tumblr.
I’ll be posting short stories, new and old, on this blog. If you have any thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, ANYTHING: I’d love it if you gave me an opinion on my writing. Just click “Ask” to review!
I hope you enjoy my writing and please, remember to review! Thanks in advance, netizens!
