A Story In Real Life: Trapped In Storyland

Here’s this week’s Picture It & Write:

real life characters

 

Aiden looked up at the white paper sky. He often wondered what lay behind this sheet of clouds. People passed by him. He knew that they all thought that he was crazy. But he knew that he was not.

The Love Potion

Here’s my contribution to this week’s Picture it & Write:

“Drink it and you will find love.” The old woman with the crooked nose grinned at me. Her rotten teeth showed off. “The One will come to you and your wish will finally come true.”

NaNoWriMo: It’s All Right To Take Your Time

We have only one month, 30 days, to write a whole novel of at least 50,000 words. That means at least 1,667 words per day. For many, this sounds like an impossible challenge. For others, they know they can do it, because they’ve done it before. And for a few, it is way too easy and the word count exceeds the 50k limit quickly.

But whether it’s a piece of cake or of rock to you, we all have this tendency of rush and urgency when it comes to NaNoWriMo.

To Become A Vampire

Back to the ‘Unpredicted’ series! 🙂 So here’s this week’s picture it and write:

With years of perseverance and practice, a vampire was able to refrain from jumping at any human being and sucking all their blood. That was why I, Clare, was still alive, although a few moments earlier, Caleb, who I once thought was a very close friend but who turned out to be a bloodsucking vampire, had been draining a poor man, hidden in the fogs, on the bridge that separated the sophisticated city and the dark evergreen forest.

The Fog: It Hides…

The ‘Unpredicted’ series continues with another Picture it & Write!

A bridge, it created a link between two different worlds, it made way for us to discover new horizons. My mother used to tell it to me when we would be walking hand in hand on the bridge which would lead us to an amazing park. A wild forest, they called it, but I did not believe that dancing trees and singing birds were considered wild. It was the most peaceful place I have ever gone to.

Those Dreams That Are Blurry

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some fiction! And I have to catch up on ‘Unpredicted’ – a mini series of short stories which is inspired weekly by Picture it & Write 🙂 You can see that I’ve published a new page just below the ‘An Evil Nymph’ banner, next to the ‘Another Blog!’ tab, called ‘The ‘Unpredicted’ series’ where I’ll be updating the ‘chapters’ (if we should call these chapters) of the series as it progresses every week…

Check it out!

Now here’s last week picture (which I did get to write on time because I had to do the ‘Sites of the Month’ post…):

Reflection

Yeah it’s time for this week’s Picture it & Write! And again I’m inspiring myself from a short story I’m progressively building at random, depending on the picture Ermilia hosts every week, called ‘Unpredicted’.

NB: the progress of the story itself relies on the pictures given.

Read what happened previously in the story:

1. Your Eyes… And Mine

2. An Escape Attempt (keep scrolling for this one, it’s at the very end of the post!)

3. The Love Key… Among Others

4. This Is Your Life. And It’s All You’ve Got.

5. Destructive Yet Inspiring

Now, here’s this week’s picture and contribution:

This Is Your Life. And It’s All You’ve Got.

This post is written for this week’s Picture It & Write hosted by Ermilia.

Caleb doesn’t and will never love me.

I stopped on my tracks and waited for the road to be clear of any vehicles. Only a few more steps before I reached my dear apartment after a long day’s work at the college establishment. Shadow was surely waiting for me impatient; she rarely slept these last few days since we went on our trip which covered most of the Europe continent.

Your Eyes… And Mine

This post is inspired by Picture it & Write #32 – which comes from a series of weekly challenges hosted by Ermilia’s Blog.

I believe that the eye is the most mysterious organ of our body. Not in the biological – all scientific – way of seeing it but in a deeper way… spiritual? I don’t know the right word, but what I know is that I believe in the saying that goes: “The eyes are the windows to the soul.” We can perceive so many things about a person just by looking into their eyes. The eyes reflect our deepest emotions although our face struggles not to.
