Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! To celebrate, I’ll be uploading the rest of Soul Transfer: Kidnapped today! πŸ˜€

Also, I have an announcement: I’ll be in Japan for the next three weeks! As a result, I won’t be able to upload anything while I’m there so this blog will be on a hiatus until January 17th.

See you all then!

Happy Holidays! πŸ˜€

Announcement: Halloween Week

You guys are probably wondering why I didn’t upload the next part of Kidnapped last Friday right?

Well…

That’s because..

Halloween Week is officially commencing today! πŸ˜€

In case you don’t remember from last year, Halloween Week is the week leading up to Halloween in which I upload 1 short horror piece every day!

I don’t have the exact line-up at the moment, but the first story will be uploaded immediately following this post! Be on the lookout for it! πŸ˜€

100 Posts, 200 Likes, 56 Amazing People

As my 100th post on this blog, I wanted to say thank you to everyone! I’ve recently hit 200 likes and 56 followers so I really wanted to say thank you to everyone who has supported me and my writing! I wish I could get to know you all personally because I’m sure you’re all really amazing people!

Honestly, when I started this blog, I was absolutely terrified of posting my stories online. I couldn’t imagine other people reading (let alone liking!) them. I was surprised and overwhelmed when I hit ten followers so to have hit fifty…

I honestly don’t know what to say… Words are my life yet they are failing me now because there are no words to describe how grateful and happy I am. I’ve been sitting at the keyboard for fifteen minutes staring at the end of that sentence and I still can’t find the right way to continue.

So I’ll end it with more thank yous, ENDLESS thank yous. I feel so blessed to have found this community and to be able to share my stories with other people.

Thank you for all the support and I hope I’ll be able to write more stories that you all will like!

See you in the next post! πŸ˜‰

A Message to My Readers

Hello wonderful readers!

Sorry I haven’t uploaded anything since Halloween! I haven’t forgotten about this blog, I promise!

Unfortunately I haven’t been writing much due to the fact that I’ve been grieving the loss of a friend these past few weeks. It’s been hard but I think I’m coming to terms with it.

I opened my notebook yesterday and started writing so I’m slowly getting back to my regular routine. I still don’t feel quite up to the task of writing a full story yet so I’m just dabbling withΒ story beginnings and descriptions and whatnot.

I don’t know when I’ll have something to upload– I may post a vignette or two in the next couple weeks, so I’m sorry. I hope you all will forgive me for this absence and I hope to hear from you guys when I officially return (and I will, I promise, I just need a little more time to get a story together and start uploading).

See you soon!

Announcement: Halloween Week!

Hello readers! πŸ˜€

I know I’ve been silent these past few weeks, but there is a reason. I have not given up on this blog.

Quite the opposite.

I’ve been preparing for Halloween week.

On the week leading up to Halloween, I hope to upload a short horror story every single day. πŸ˜€ I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to get all the stories together, but I have a few stocked up and I’m working on two more so hopefully everything will be ready.

Anyways, please look forward to it! πŸ˜€

Announcement: Requests

Hello readers! πŸ˜€

First of all, thank you for existing. I can’t believe that anybody reads my stories so I really want to say thank you. πŸ™‚

Second of all, I am officially taking requests for stories!!! πŸ˜€ I am in constant need of something new to write and I love a challenge. I am willing to write just about anything (except smut, sorry but no. Just no.) so fire away!

To request a story, email me at: celeste.stranburk@gmail.com .

Your email must contain answers to these questions:

Story: Genre*?Β POV? (Third or First Person; I’ve never really written in second person POV and don’t particularly want to). Length? (ie. Short story or flash fiction? Please include maximum word count, otherwise I may try to turn it into a novel. I’m serious. This has happened before and it never ends well.) Anything you want to avoid? (ie. Character death*, violence/gore, romance)

Protagonist(s): Male/Female? Age Range? Any characteristic you want them to have? Once again, anything you want to avoid?

*With regards to genre, this can once again be anything except smut. Also, if you do not have a specific genre in mind, you can send me a song or an image and I will create a story from there.Β All other questions must be answered regardless.

WARNING: In case you have not noticed, I have a tendency to kill off characters. If you want the story to end with people still breathing, please specify this. Otherwise, I may upload a fictional pile of corpses. Also, Β if you request something in the fantasy, horror, or similar genres and you dislike violence/gore, include that in the email otherwise… *ahem* Pile. Of. (Fictional.) Corpses.
