A Guide to My Writing (Updated 4/23)

This guide is designed to create an easy way to find something to read on the site. Summarizing genre, content warnings, and blurbs, reading through this post will give you a good idea of what interests you while letting you avoid things that don’t.

Longer Works / Short Stories / Flash Fiction / Drabbles / Poems

Longer Works – Stories that have multiple parts/chapters

Short Stories – Isolated stories generally over 1,000 words that usually tell a complete story

Flash Fiction – Stories usually under 1,000 words that tell either a simple or incomplete story.

Drabbles – Personal works that fall between poetry and narrative

Poems – all forms of poetry

If there’s a * beside a story’s title, that means that the story is inspired by a song and that the title is likely the song’s title.

Check back here whenever I put something new up to see if it sounds interesting to you! Will update as stuff comes out.
