This journal is FRIENDS-ONLY.

Why, you ask? It's not because I'm unfriendly. It's not because I hate the world.

Really, it's just because while I want people to read and enjoy and critique my writing, I've had some run-ins with serious plagiarism before. Therefore, as I'm totally unpublished and am hoping to get some stuff out there one day, I'm taking this quite seriously.

If I know you in real life, or from past LJ stuff, please just comment here with your name (especially if you've switched accounts), and I'll friend you!

If you just think this looks interesting, and we've never spoken, I'd really appreciate it if you could send me a message or email or IM or something so I can know you're trustworthy. I'm sure you're all fabulous people, but for the people reading this? I want to know that I don't have to worry about my work being copied by someone else.

As a note: to all people at brigits_flame: All my entries for a month will be made public until the month is over. Then they will be friends-locked. Feel free to friend me if you want! I trust you guys. :)

So without further ado: If I've known you in the past / know you currently, comment here and I'll let you in! If you're a newcomer, just send me an...

Title: Jumper
Word count: 1314.
notes: Written for May, week 1 of brigits_flame. This is a weird story; I apologize in advance. I don't know why I wrote it. The prompt was "A bag of root vegetables," and I'll be the first to say that this was used very peripherally -- it did, however, inspire the whole thing (my first image, sadly, was of a suicide, not of soup or grocery shopping), so I think that counts. As usual, this is almost entirely unedited.

The first dead body Cassie ever saw was the body of a stranger.Collapse )

title: Mirror Mirror
word count: 1085
author's note: For the mini contest at brigits_flame, I've remixed slang_jockey's entry "Shadow of Self." The original's here, in case you haven't read it. This is, for all those people seeing this who are not familiar with BF, all conceptual property of slang_jockey: plot and characters. I've simply restylized it and written it the way I would have. :)

It's hard to avoid your own reflectionCollapse )

title: House of Cards
word count: ~3000
notes: This was written for week 2 of the February contest of brigits_flame. Two things: 1. This is sort of a continuation of a story I won with last October called Kids with Guns. The only characters in common are Eddie and Jim, but I think it explains a lot of what I put in there that no one actually picked up on, which was interesting. 2. This doesn't have quite as much to do with the prompt ("Sorry") as I wanted; I more took it as a lack of sorry; as in, unrepentant and lacking remorse. If it doesn't work, I apologise. I was hitting a block and thsi is what I came up with. I also apologise for the absurd word count.

Please ignore any issues -- I wrote this very, very quickly and didn't have any time to read it over before submitting. Alas.

We run out of gas in a dark part of Newark.Collapse )

title: The Leftovers
universe: Die Young & Sell Your Soul
characters: C.C. Howlett, Flynn Gallagher, Alex Delmar
word count: 2098
author's note: Written for week 4 of the brigits_flame allstars contest. The prompt was "Vestige." This was an obvious choice to fit the prompt, and hopefully it comes across properly. Usually, I'd write something explanatory up here, but I figure it's better to not colour anyone's perception with an author's note. This piece deals with three of the characters in my novel.

Tonight is a bad night.Collapse )

title: Things to Bring to Hell
word count: ~850
author's note: This was written simultaneously for that contest thorarosebird post about on brigits_flame a few weeks ago and for this week's BF prompt, "reprisal." I wrote this in about four hours, as the Writer's Weekly contest is 24 hours total, fit the prompt, and it also fit some lesser known definitions of reprisal that I hadn't previously known: "Forcible seizure of an enemy's goods or subjects in retaliation for injuries inflicted" and "The recovering by force of what is one's own." So. Yeah!

This is the "elongated" version. This means the version that DIDN'T have to be 850 words. Hooray!

There's a list on the refrigerator.Collapse )

universe: Die Young & Sell Your Soul
characters: Alison, Warren, C.C, and Chris Howlett.
word count: 2300
note: This was written for the allstars month at brigits_flame. The prompt was "erudition."

It was never a question of not loving them enough.Collapse )

Update: I'm very, very behind. VERY BEHIND. But that's okay; I am having some plotting issues, in the sense that I have not outlined at all and I am not quite sure where to go from chapter four. But I'll get it -- never fear!

This is an excerpt from chapter two:Collapse )

For those of you who might not know, I'm doing NaNo this year! And hopefully it'll be more successful than last year. My username on there is bellumina, so if you're also participating, feel free to add me as a writing buddy.

My novel is currently sitting at 7,873 (as of last night), and I hope to get to approximately 10,000 by this afternoon. I've posted an excerpt of the novel (tentatively titled Die Young & Sell Your Soul) for nanoinflames. It's the very beginning of chapter one!

He hadn't called it exile.Collapse )
