Sorry guys! Got caught up working on chapter 3 and lost track of time. Here is part 2!
“I’ve gone over every paper the hospital sent home with me, wikipedia, the Mayo Clinic website and every other site I could find. None of them know for sure what causes leukemia,” Patience greeted me. “I even went to the hospital and talked with the doctors there, just to double check. We have nothing, My Lord.”
Okay, so, I had planned on updating ‘When Love Dies’ this weekend, but I discovered a few features of wordpress that I hadn’t noticed before, so now I have some organizing and rearranging to do.
In the meantime, please enjoy the short story I wrote for my Creative Writing course and be sure to let me know what you think.
“The Witch’s Café“
Based on this writing prompt:
“I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society.”
Feedback is always welcome.
Sorry for the delay everyone. Here is part 1 of Chapter 2.
His nostrils flared. “It means you have measured me by your crooked stick and have found me wanting. Tell me, Mother, do you know what this—” He showed me his middle finger. “means?”
I know it’s getting late in the day, but I promise, Chapter 2 of When Love Dies is on its way! Just smoothing out some bumps. Also, there will be a (very small) bonus piece tomorrow. A blooper, as it were 😉
Also, in the coming weeks, updates should be more regular. The main reason it’s taking so long for this part is because I had to rewrite two entire strands for the math class I’m in, plus an assignment for the creative writing class, and an emergency eye doctor visit. Fun times. So much fun.
Sorry everyone, no update on the story this week. I am out of town. Next week, hopefully, part 1 of chapter 2 will be posted.
Various Gods and Goddesses have walked the Earth since the beginning of time, helping to shape the future of mankind under the direction of the First God. Then the First is called away to settle a problem on the other side of the universe. When They return in their latest incarnation – a woman going by the name of Tamara – she finds that things on Earth have changed – and not for the better.
Now Trust is dying, Love is growing weaker every day, and it’s up to Tamara to find out why before it’s too late.
On top of that, a couple new Gods have popped up. While this isn’t usually a problem, these two threaten Tamara’s authority with their growing strength, and one of them doesn’t share Tamara’s “live and let live” philosophy.
The other…well, let’s just say, that one presents a different problem.
I forgot to mention this in the last post about “When Love Dies“: the first post should be up on January 7th. Barring any complications, the following segments will be posted the Saturday of each week until completion.
If – for some reason – I am unable to update with a new segment, I will try to at least give you a snippet of something. It might be from my other WIP, a poem, or just something I whip up real quick.
Fingers crossed you guys like Tamara as much as I’m beginning to.
Sharing Saturday is going on hiatus, but that’s actually somewhat good news, because in its place, I will be posting part of a new story. Those of you who follow Ilona Andrews and know about their Innkeeper series: this will be just like that.
For those of you not familiar with the idea, this is how it works:
Each week, I will post part of a chapter. You guys are welcome to ask questions, make suggestions, point out mistakes here and there, etc.. You are especially welcome to share feedback in general.When the story is complete, I will take it down, do some editing (taking your feedback into account) and publish it.
I will be posting the premise here in about an hour. Hope you guys enjoy the idea as much as I’m looking forward to giving this a try.
