Merry Christmas!

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

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! 😀

See you next week!

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 with 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!

Cancer [INFORMATION]

Parts: 1

Upload Day: Today

Genres: Tragedy, friendship, ambiguous

Trigger Warnings: Cancer, disease

Tags: Cancer, story, friendship, 1-shot, dialogue, ambiguous, tragedy, third-person POV, tension.

Writing Assignment: Write a dialogue in which each of the two characters has a secret or shares a secret. Do not reveal the secret but make the reader intuit it. The purpose is to give two characters individual ways of speaking, and to make dialogue crackle with feelings no directly expressed. Remember that in dialogue, as a general rule, every pause must somehow be shown, either by narration (for example, “she paused”) or by some gesture or other break that shows the pause. And remember that gesture is a part of all real dialogue. Sometimes, for instance, we look away instead of answering.

Please let me know what you think! Unfortunately, the secret is given away in the title, but let me know if the story fits the title. All criticism is greatly appreciated! 🙂

Goodbye, Brooklyn INFORMATION

Parts: 2

Upload Days: Saturday

Genres: Tragedy, Apocalypse, Dystopia

Requested by: Madin456 to the song “Hello Brooklyn” by All Time Low. Request parameters: Male protagonist, aged 17-25, tragedy: either about the end of the world or someone’s death, third-person POV, 2,000 word count limit.

Please let me know what you think in the comments! All criticism is appreciated! 🙂

Announcement: Requests

Hello readers! 😀

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

Second of all, I am officially taking requests for stories!!! 😀 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*? 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. 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,  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.
