While on a break between undergraduate and graduate school, I’ve been doing quite a bit of writing. I’ve been exploring new platforms, new styles, and refining my normal writing methods.
I’ve recently discovered a website called reedsyprompts. I’ve become a bit obsessed with the challenge of reading a prompt and writing a short story to match within a day.
I’m trying to push myself outside of my normal writing comfort zone. Today, I wrote my second short story on the page, called “The Last Tea Party.” It’s a bit darker than most of the stuff I usually write. If you are curious, you can access my profile and stories at the link below.
Another writing platform I have recently discovered is the Center for Creative Writing. They do a monthly photo prompt contest specifically for e-mail subscribers. In December, my entry was chosen as the featured story! I’ve shared screen shots of the photo prompt and my story below.
I look forward to sharing more stories with you in the future. Until next time, take care!
