Trying my hand at a spooky story for once! When I woke up, I thought I was dead. The world was never-ending darkness. There was no sound. No smell. And yet, a sense of dread settled so deeply within me that the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. The beating of … Continue reading The Knock
The latest instalment in the Colour Series. “How am I supposed to live on this single stupid planet for the rest of my life?” My own voice, roaring so loudly that it seemed to shake the very foundations of my home, replayed in my head. The force of the question made my stomach twist—but it … Continue reading Green
This was entered into a short story competition, and while it didn’t win, I still had lots of fun writing it so I wanted to share! The story had to involve someone randomly getting $20,000.

Prompt: Write a story that takes place across ten seconds. “Where are you taking me?” Esmerelda glared at the smiling man standing above her with his hands deep in the pockets of his gilded red coat. The sight of such outdated Earth fashion in space would have been humorous under normal circumstances, but the cold … Continue reading The Lightspeed of Thought
Penned using my brand new Rocketbook, which I’ll be talking about in a post later this week!
