I want to explain the origins of my short stories. Unlike my poems these can be derived in dreams that I write down when I wake. Dreams are new to me, arriving with the initiation of the medication that I am on for anxiety and depression. I much prefer them to the old routine of relentless nightmares.
Like my poems, the topics of the short stories are random with even me being surprised at some of them. I enjoy this form of writing and it is more familiar to me than poetry. There is nothing better than a story to get entwined in and forget everything else in those moments.
I would like to write a novel one day and am practicing in the short stories I write and the Credgeling serial. I am working on my background information story telling that would make my stories feel more real. I do better with stories that are related to what I experience but I have an active imagination as well.
I find that my stories can yield life lesson’s, things I have learnt or would want someone else to know, to aid them. I just love weaving words into sentences, paragraphs or lines of poetry and suddenly it feels complete and I can move onto the next topic.
I would love reader feedback on my stories, as well as topic suggestions.
